To my music loving friends out there….
Admittidly, I’m a bit of a music “snob”. And what I mean by that is not that I judge you for what you are listening to, rather I am awefully picky about what I listen to. I’m not one of those people that has 9 million songs on my iPod, just to prove that I “love music” or have a huge selection. Money will sit in my iTunes account for months before I pick what music I want to buy. When I DO buy music, i am in LOVE with it and listen over and over again.
Every LP, CD or album I have is worn thin from use. I fall in love with my music and am selective. So when I find music that I love, I pass it along.
Here are a few of my recent recommendations.
I have a hard time with lots of modern Christian music out there. It all sounds the same to me, so I usually default to old school albums of hymns and musicians of the past (Keith Green). BUT. My favorite, modern Christian album of all time is by
BURLAP TO CASHMERE. The album title is “Anybody Out There?”.
Each song is amazing.
Thanks to my awesome sista, friend, cousin, Janelle, I saw the movie ONCE and fell in love with the music of Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova. The soundtrack is simply beautiful and my husband spoiled me and got me the LP (and I am a firm believer that most music sounds better quality on an LP, rather than a CD, but we don’t have to argue about that):
Get anything by M. Ward. Fabulous.
So…there you go. And thanks to some of you, I have learned of new music and even bought some….so thank you.
Music makes my heart swell and is one of my most treasured things.
