Say those three words quickly. I’m talkin’ about MUSIC, baby! And I need some suggestions. Extra credit is awarded if I can download it on iTunes, but that’s not a requirement.
I need some good Christian music. I’m told that’s not an oxymoron anymore. Does Christian music exist that doesn’t go on and on about how great God is? Not that I don’t agree, of course. But I’d also like to listen to something that moves ME.
Let’s make this a bit more difficult and tell you a little about my tastes. I love Phil Collins and Elton John. Those two are my favorite singers of all time. I also love the new Rascal Flatts CD Me and My Gang. I like to hear what is being sung, and not just hear a bunch of instruments wailing away. The delivery of words is important to me. Words delivered in a powerful way with the right music behind them just take me to a different place. That’s something Elton John specializes at, in my opinion.
In the right mood, I’ll listen to almost anything. My iPod ranges from Elton to Metallica, Classical to Jazz and even a bit of Yung Joc for those days when cruising Shasta Lake on the XStar (that’s a wakeboard boat, for those of you wondering). But for now let’s stick with something comparable to Elton John/Phil Collins.
Anything come to mind? Talk to me!
