Happy Cesar Chavez Day!
Here are the Top 20 Songs for March 2011 as voted on by online listeners. I was happy to see that John Gorka’s “Wisheries” squeaked in at number 20 as it is such a pretty song with the sweetest rhymes. You can read the lyrics here. That album also has the gorgeous WWII themed song “Let Them In”. The origin of the lyrics is a little vague but they were in the possession of a nurse who served in the Philippines during the war. Here’s a video of John performing “Let Them In” .
The storage space for the Acoustic Pie stream is *very* tight right now! Be sure and vote for your favorites (and your not-so-favorites) to let me know which songs I should keep in the rotation (or not :)
Jason Mraz (no. 2) is the only San Diego artist to make the Top 20 this month but what a fine representative he is! A beautiful voice and a beautiful wordsmith, too.
Thanks for reading and thanks for listening, everyone!
