I wouldn’t spend my life just wishing

Wishes are a form of dreaming, of fantasizing, of what if’ing and what could be’ing. We wish on blown birthday candles, on coins tossed into wishing wells, on stars that may be planets, or aircrafts, or UFO’s. Do you believe in the power of wishing? Do we manifest realized wishes? Are they granted? Or is it all just twists of fate and coincidence?

Here are ten of my favorite wishing songs to press play and listen to. What are your favorite songs about wishing?
