The first and only song for today is the simple folk song "24 Hours" by Flat Ed. Hope you like it. I'm off to bed now.
I can't resist. Here's another fine song by Monika Bullette — "The Laziest Gal In Town", an acoustic cover version of a Marlene Dietrich song from Alfred Hitchcock's "Stage Fright". This is a live recording from June 2005.
"Show me" is the first song from Monika Bullette's debut album "The Secrets". Pretty nice rock song.

Here comes (another) slow, dark, almost depressive piece by Mercy Machine. It has German lyrics and spreads a very very dark, melancholic mood, while still being nice to listen to.
Next up is something much, much brighter and happier, I promise ;)
A beautiful mixture of sort of a poem (word spoken by Junko Yanagida, with a very soft voice), accompanied by a flute and rhythmic drums. The first part of the text is spoken in Japanese (I don't understand a word, but luckily there's an English translation in the comments section). The second part is spoken in English and even gets a little symphonic touch (more instruments and a choir in the background), very nice...
