You Make Me Feel Like…

Our blog assignment this week is to find a song that the singer sings with utter abandonment.  The singer’s performance (not the song) needs to make you feel what they feel and what the composer of the song intended you to feel.  We at least need the song title and artist, but if you are so inclined you can also link to youtube so we can all enjoy this song.  You need to explain to us what the singer made you feel and how they did it.
