Song Of The Day

If you've been with me long enough, you will know that I love music. Hell, I even credit it with saving my life. I blog about it all the time with album reviews, the now defunct Sunday Blues. I even use to post songs for you all to download. Music plays such a huge role in our lives. We associate some of our biggest moments with music. Where am I going with all this? Only to draw your attention to a great song that I think you should check out. It's by Russell Watson off his album Encore called Where My Heart Will Take Me. Two things.

1) Yes, it is the theme to Star Trek Enterprise.
2) Yes, it has some of the cheesiest lyrics.
It's been a long road, getting from there to here.
It's been a long time, but my time is finally near.
And I can feel the change in the wind right now. Nothing's in my way.
And they're not gonna hold me down no more, no they're not gonna hold me down

Right up there with Lee Greenwood's God Bless The U.S.A.

But don't let those things keep you from taking a listen. It's a fantastic song. Watson is more of an operatic singer, but he does other styles. Just check it out and see if you like it.
