Armand Margjeka's "Margo Margo"
Singing in a voice somewhere between the croak of Leonard Cohen and the beguiling whisperings of Nick Drake, Margjeka has crafted a thoughtful gem of persuasive pleas, bittersweet adieus, and heart tugging affirmations of enduring affection and commitment.

Noel's "I Won't Answer"
The rhythmic washes and sharp lyrical imagery with lines like, "They dig the wicked oil like Cortez gold, burn the new world curse the old, I'd walk away now but the passage sold, as the fat men bluff and the good men fold" add a luring mystique to Noel's transcendent sound.
