Strumming My Pain With His Fingers

The Fugees and Roberta Flack have both sung the pained strains of “Killing Me Softly”.  It is a song that leeches into your bones when you hear it.

The silky soulful voices of these talented musicians capture the power of the impact music has on us as the listener.  The way that music can transport us to places near or far.  Or has the power to make us feel as though the singer knows exactly how we feel deep within our heart of hearts.

Equal to those tugs on the heart strings, is the tug on a string of a more carnal nature.

The “pain” his fingers are strumming may not be the emotional kind.

What songs bring heat to your cheeks and strike the right note in your heart?
