Songwriters’ Side of the Song

There are some hit songs that might have touched people’s lives especially when the original singer sings it. The person who wrote the song might also have a deeper understanding and touch to it. The songs could sound different from what the people know. So, I have looked for some songs done by artists with the songwriter’s demo. These are some of my favorites!
