Last Chance to Influence the picks for Best Of CD

Here are the suggestions so far for what to include on the JRL Best Of . The rules: songs have to be from: (1) The 5 Song Demo, Seconds to Sunrise, JRL10, Caught In the Paydirt, Now, or Balloon (unreleased), OR (2) if they are unreleased, they have to be a bonus track. Remember -- this may be the only piece of JRL some people ever get, so these are grave decisions with long term consequences! Make your voice heard. Speak now (or in next couple days) and I'll take your ideas into account. You may leave your suggestions as comments.

I don't know the name of it, but the one that has the line about "wind tugging at my coat-tails", that song is awsome.
Also, i'm dangerously serious about the synth project.

Unreleased Recommendations---------
Daughters and Sons, CSM delivery 1, This is very upbeat and fun.
Despite Hell--This is the most depressing song that somehow uplifts me that I can think of. I love to use this song for Service Adventure Learning Components along with the video you made for this. I like how it emphasizes that living for Jesus is about making a choice to follow. We have the power to choose the positive or negative.

All the Way (Acoustic), I played this song during the funeral of my grandma after I said a few words and invited persons to invite Jesus into their hearts. This song will always take me back to that day with a lump in my throat and my eyes glassed over, but deep down I remember with joy because I know all the things the songs says is true. "What can we say when words fade away?" "Look now to the one she served..." "Thank God for eternal life." "May the hope of resurrection overwhelm our sad perceptions all the way."
