You know those songs, those really special ones? The ones that make your skin tingle? They may make you feel like you can throw a Dodge Dakota the length of a football field, or they may bring you to tears every time you hear them. Either way, those songs have your number. They have a certain power over you as a music fan. We talk about those songs here. Music tells us who we are if we really listen. And No Sleep Til Sudbury turns up the volume nice and loud.
