Bollie: The songs that leaves me contemplating is THE GREATEST by Sia. it's a very powerful song with a powerful message.
Reggie: The song that leaves me contemplating is Gotye's SOMEBODY THAT I USED TO KNOW. The video made me fall in love with the song. It gave it a deeper meaning.
Bollie: I don't really have a song that makes me want to cry but that one that I remember got me emotional when I was little was MY HEART WILL GO ON by Celine Dion.
Reggie: The song that makes me want to cry is THANK YOU MAMA by Sizzla Kalonji. It brings me memories of all the struggles that me and my mum went through many years ago and it makes me very grateful for having a mum like mine.
