Trust me Anthony - I wanted to include "The Winner Takes It All" by ABBA but I too thought people would laugh at me. That song has been known to bring tears to my eyes!! And "One of Us" is also an amazing song. Not to be confused with the Joan Osbourne song...what if God was one of us? Just a stranger on the bus!
