Most of the people believe that every single individual is born with the quality to understand the most romantic language that is of music. Surprisingly it needs no training as we can see that even infant can enjoy the music. Who makes them learn about rhythm and beats; perhaps this is one of the things that create its own understanding within no time. However the taste may vary from one person to another person and from one situation to another situation. Whatever be the criteria I believe that the “ain’t no reason” by Brett Dennen is the one song that can be termed as the ideal desert song. This is the song that I would love to listen to this song.
