Summary. This month’s Heart Songs selections are a collection of songs about love, life, and relationships — except for the first song, Roll Tide by Hanz Zimmer from the movie Crimson Tide (Amazon | iTunes). You can see the complete selection of songs at the bottom of this page.

This song was selected by the RNC/GOP to be played at the conclusion of John McCain’s 2008 Presidential Concession Speech. [Read More]
