And while we’re on a downtempo vein, here’s another by Shannon Curtis, which takes on US military policy. Despite the political intent, it is still a lovely song in its own right. To listen and download.

Shannon Curtis – Brightest Light

Blurb: “Brightest Light in the Room” was written for two of Shannon’s fans, both retired female US Army veterans of the war in Iraq, on the occasion of their wedding engagement. This alternative-electro-downtempo-dream-pop song is not only beautiful and uplifting, but the story behind the music touches on some of the most important human rights issues currently being discussed in the US: the end of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, and the rights of gay and lesbian Americans to marry.
