25 Jul 2008, 19:45 by martinjanssen1. How did you get into 29?
Kathryn Scott had done some tracks on the Hungry album by Vineyard. When I heard her song "Child of God" I said I wanted to meet whoever wrote it because it changed my world and the way I looked at God. And after 10 years I got to meet her. Very cool and sweet woman!
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 21?
Radiohead: must be Creep, but after Street Spirit I really got into their music
3. What’s your favorite lyric by 33?
4hero - Star Chasers: "you know there's got to be meanin'
or are we here for the ride?"
4. What is your favorite album by 49?
Vineyard: 'Hungry' by Vineyard UK, the first worship album that got me into worship music
5. How many albums by 13 do you own?
This Beautiful Mess a great Dutch band, I own 2 albums by them, equally good.
6. What is your favorite song by 50?
Oi Va Voi - Refugee, splendid track!
7. Is there a song by 39 that makes you sad?
19 Jun 2008, 05:19 by davidabusdriveri've always loved singer-songwriters, but there are few that stand up above the rest lyrically. all 4 are christians that have broken open the roof and gone above what christian music normally puts forth. secular music has nothing on them, contemporary christian music has nothing on them, the only depth comparison out there would be the great hymns, but even they don't capture the personal aspect that these four have added to their spriitual and down to earth music. these guys are real.
Rich Mullins and Keith Green were on the forefront of the christian music explosion. that didn't get them caught up though, cause they still sang about what they felt was true and right. then came a long break, with some great music in artists like Jars of Clay, Third Day, and so forth, and by 2000 rock music came on the scene. the heavier christian bands had been around for a while, but now they were readily accepted, and bands like Disciple, Decyfer Down, Skillet, and Red, as well as rappers like Lecrae…
19 Apr 2008, 04:45 by UnionMillsHmm, a collection of songs that I have been listening too lately, all have various degrees of heartbreak attached to them.
Daniel Folmer - Serotonin
I love this song, he is an amazing songwriter, and asking "do you want to bear my child" in a song is just brilliant.
Keith Green Asleep in the Night
More Christian politics then anything else, this bleeding track asks the age old question - what would Jesus do, and why are you not doing it?
Rivulets and Violets - Hate You Dearly
Mid-90s alternative rock kicks ass, especially from this sickeningly sweet female fronted band, who never lacked the right words to say.
Scott Matthews - Secret Handshake
Shortbus was an amazing film, but even if you did not like it - you have to admit how strong the soundtrack is; and because of it I discovered this gem of an artist.
Fine China - Boo To The Freaks
No one does melancholy like these boys from the valley of the sun. period.
Summer Darling - The Painter

7 Sep 2007, 20:28 by mightythor83I've been meaning to post this a long time now. I'm a guy brought up in a Christian home, and when I was 13 years old I discovered Petra. Mainly their lyrics helped me through my teen years. After a few years, I had almost every single album they had ever put out. Including the compilations. Later I discovered that Star Song Records put out so many compilations because Petra had been there in the 80's and released their most selling albums there. So the motive was just greed. After I was done with Petra I wondered what to do. So I discovered Rebecca St James, Five Iron Frenzy, Third Day and probably a few more during an intense phase of downloading music on the net. Today I got Jamiroquai's album Dynamite. Does anyone know if this is his "best" album? I've heard about A Funk Odyssey too, but I couldn't find it in that record store. Anyway, the point of this entry is to show you my record colllection.
Various artists: Absolute Rock Classics
17 Aug 2007, 22:43 by TulsaMJHow about this for a block: every recording of a certain song written by Keith Green and Randy Stonehill (it's the same song, although concensus on the actual title seems hard to come by):
Your Love Broke Through
Love Broke Thru
Until Your Love Broke Through
Your Love Broke Through
(It's also been covered by NewSong as "When Love Broke Through", Marcia Hines as "(Until) Your Love Broke Through", The Katinas as "Until Your Love Broke Through", Glad as "Your Love Broke Through," and I remember a recording years ago from a male black Gospel artist but I don't recall for sure who it was... maybe Jessy Dixon?)
25 Oct 2006, 05:39 by ALLALOMOn the drive home tonight I started thinking about all of my musical tastes, from where it started to what it is now... I thought it might be interesting to break it down, to watch how I added music to my library over the years, and to also show how my music taste has expanded over the years.
So here it is, listed below are the influential bands per time period...some I stopped listening to after that period, others I still listen to, but by listing the main influences it might show you where I came from.
2nd Chapter Of Acts
Seven Day Jesus
The Echoing Green
Sixpence None the Richer
Creed (yes, I admit it)
