On "Baha'i" Songs: Songs Evocative of a Baha'i Perspective or Experience

New to Facebook, I have been adding songs to my profile using the iLike application. Friends can just click on the song for a sample. Songs I most want to share are those that are somehow evocative of the Baha'i perspective or experience. Each one deserves a separate post here, and I may try to do so in the future, but here is a listing of some of the songs I have chosen for starters. What are the songs similarly evocative for you? -gw
