#14 – Sarah McLachlan – “Possession” – (1993)

Sarah McLachlan has one of the best voices I can think of. This song is proof of that. The opening verse is accompanied with little instrumentation and it has a really cool sound to it. Then there’s the chorus: “And I would be the one/to hold you down/kiss you so hard/I’ll take your breath away/and after I/wipe away the tears/just close your eyes dear.” My favorite part of the song is the weird effect her voice makes when she sings: “oh you speak to me in riddles and you speak to me in rhymes.” Her voice really is incomparable and I have a rule in my car that Sarah McLachlan never gets the channel changed on her. This song probably isn’t as famous as “I Will Remember You” but it’s just as good.
