I have this nasty habit of listening to CDs and not putting them back in their cases. So for me to pick up a pile of discs and find The Best of Branigan (the late Laura, that is), among them, is as pleasant a surprise as finding a $20 bill in a jacket you haven’t worn in awhile. I don’t know which song to play first. What would you choose?

“The Power of Love”

“How am I Supposed to Live Without You?”

(More choices after the jump.)


“Self Control”

“The Lucky One”


P.S. I couldn’t find a video of “Over You” to embed, but it’s also in the running. And though they’re not on my disc, here are links to Laura singing “Forever Young,” “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” and “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” anyway.
