The Musical Divide

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

I’m not sure why I have such a fondness for songs about relationship problems. I’ve only broken up with people three times. One of them wasn’t a big deal, but the other two were heartbreakers. However, these breakups can’t be the reason for my attraction to breakup songs, as they all occurred after my attraction […]

Why CCM?

Wednesday, March 5th, 2008

Here’s something I began writing…well over a year ago. I meant to go further, but never got back to it. It’s complete enough as is. Here’s my reasoning for listening to Contemporary Christian Music (CCM): 1) I like the sound of the music. The music appeals to me. I like band music and some solo […]

Hopping on the Bandwagon

Thursday, January 10th, 2008

Because I care…about the band Caedmon’s Call. They are truly great, and one of their songs will play for the last five minutes of Grey’s Anatomy tonight. Even if you don’t like Christian music, it is well worth your money to download and listen to. . . . . . . . . . . […]

Dishwalla – Give

Monday, January 7th, 2008

Since I’ve written the Jeremy Camp review comparing his latest CD to my memories of Dishwalla, I’ve gotten a Dishwalla song stuck in my head. I like the soothing melody of this song, and apparently so do many of their fans. Also, the lyrics fit my beliefs. Let me show you. Dishwalla: “I want to […]

The Music Baton

Monday, June 6th, 2005

So, unbeknowst to me, the baton comes my way from Adriene Holland…and a blog apparently revived from the dead. I acknowledged Kari’s passing, though. I’m constantly getting myself in trouble. This is going to be hard, not that you’ll know when looking at the finished product, but trust me, it will be hard. Amount of […]

Sharing the Well

Friday, April 22nd, 2005

For my sociology class we had to write a 2 page paper about sociological aspects of a song or poem. It had to touch on 2 different themes we had talked about in class. I chose this song as it had to do with class/caste and religion. Today I’ll be playing the song for the […]

Mercy Me–Undone

Wednesday, December 1st, 2004

I should have known not a single person would comment on my song. The trends are obvious. Fortunately I won’t let that stop me from posting them in the future. Unfortunately, I don’t have many more. I’m not going to do a big, long review like I did for Caedmon’s Call–Share the Well. I only […]

How Do You Listen To Music?

Wednesday, November 17th, 2004

Geof asked the question in his recent post. He also mentioned that we could write about it and just let him know. What an excellent idea! With money being tight in our house, and with me being as picky as I am, I find that I don’t buy a lot of music unless 1) I […]
