Beginners Playlist

My ambition was to make a playlist that you could listen to as a beginner, not yet knowing, Pretty Maids. But it just took too much time and it is so hard to pick just 15 songs. I still don't know what songs I would pick. Maybe everyone's favourite songs from the top of this page? Or, the live album It Comes Alive - Maid in Switzerland from 2012. I think it is a fantastic album and it really capture the essence of Pretty Maids.
