because the end of The Breakfast Club wouldn’t be the same without this song.

I REMEMBER - DEADMAU5 / KASKADE

because sometimes, repetitive music gets old, and sometimes it gets you going.
because music has the power to change your mood, no matter what the mood.

Is This The World We Created - Queen (Wembley 1986)

because this song reminds me that what we create affects others and we’d better create miracles instead of chaos.
because we must remember to care for this planet and its inhabitants as best we can.
because love is the answer to the world that we created.
In loving memory of all those lost on this day 11 years ago.
Peace be with you.

because I love the name of this band.
because I think and I know that actions speak louder than words.
because we can ALL dance through life, after all…”life is a dance”!
