If songs were buildings, most would be like houses or office buildings that don’t really stand out too much from one another.
There are some songs, though, that have made such an indelible impression on the collective consciousness that they that they stand out like skyscrapers.
Songs like “New York, New York” by Frank Sinatra, “Candle in the Wind” by Elton John and “Imagine” by John Lennon can certainly be regarded as “skyscrapers” among all songs that have ever been recorded.
Generally, songs that have risen to claim that degree of acclaim have been sung by singer-songwriters who have been regarded as superstars, and that’s one reason why those songs are remembered with such reverence.
As we all know, though, there are exceptions to every rule.
Right now, in our midst, one singer-songwriter who has been on Alive with Clive enjoys the distinction of having created two songs that could be regarded as skyscrapers — even though she is not affiliated with any record label and is only now starting to become well-known.
Her name is Dani Elise, and the first of the two songs, “Religion,” which she wrote over 10 years ago and performed on Alive with Clive in 2009, was featured in a Blog post about her published a few days ago.

As noted on her Bandcamp page:
|DANI is a UK born Indie-Pop-Soul Artist with classic rock, worldly & spiritual influences. “Breaking all the rules, . . . [s]he plays with dark and light, the sexy and the spiritual. But always with heart. DANI, a voice with a powerful message and one of passion transcendence that rises to unveil a legacy of love and light.”|
The second song is a song she wrote within the past few months and has not yet been officially released for streaming on digital platforms.
It is called “Woman,” and it is destined to become an anthem to empower women around the world.
When you hear the song, you’ll immediately realize that it is completely congruent with the authentic, from-the-heart method of songwriting Dani teaches in her songwriting course she recently created and is now offering.
