Its difficult for me to pick a favorite Melissa Etheridge song, let alone album. I feel all of her music so deeply and for different reasons. Take the album "Your Little Secret" for instance. This cd got me through a breakup with my first love. I don't know how many times I listened to the songs "Change" and "I Want To Come Over." (Ah, what its like to be a girl!) I like her latest album "Lucky" for completely different reasons. It's happy. I love to listen to this one of the treadmill. It really pumps me up.
"Skin" centers around breaking up, finding one's own identity and moving on. Among my favorite songs on this cd are the aggressive "Lover Please," the mellow "Down to One," and hopeful "I Want to Be in Love." But, of course, the whole album is great.
