1. Imagine - John Lennon

Its lyrics remain as poignant and relevant today. Don't we all wish for the day that the world can live as one?

2. Any track from Buddha Bar Vol 1

Opening Aqua on Hollywood Road all those years ago we had only five CDs on continuous repeat, and this was one of them. Those tunes are forever ingrained in my head.

3. Yo Vengo a Ofrecer Mi Corazon - Mercedes Sosa

You never ever just listen to a Mercedes Sosa song. She has that unique talent to capture the soul of the song and keep me completely enthralled, even though I don't understand much Spanish.

4. Parce Mihi Domine - Jan Garbarek & The Hilliard Ensemble

From the Officium album composed by Cristobal de Morales, Pierre de LaRue, Perotin, Guillaume Dufay and other anonymous composers. A unique, haunting, clever fusion of jazz and Gregorian chant.

5. I Am an Errand Girl for Rhythm - Diana Krall

My all-time favourite female jazz vocalist. She sounds even better in person.
