Music plays a huge role in my life, most of my thoughts about music are from Father and how he relates to me. It’s hard to compile all of my thoughts about music into a couple of sentence so bare with me while I go on and on about how music effects my everyday life.
Most of where my inspiration and depth of love for Father comes from music and it doesn’t have to be Christian, and honestly most of what I love is not Christian music. Ever since I was probably in high school or younger I found some pretty inspirational music from the band Creed. Creed is not a Christian band; they are secular alternative/rock band that started in the mid-to late 90’s. Father used them to open my eyes to how sensitive I am to life behind the microphone. Meaning, what inspired this artist to create such amazing lyrics. If you search on you tube, you will find some amazing songs that Creed has written and even some interviews that Scott Stapp, the lead singer has done! Very intelligent and an amazing musician!
It’s all about the mood and I love all different Genres of music anywhere from soundtracks to hard rock music! My mood swings are wacked because I could go from soft classical soundtrack music to some heavy metal hard stuff in one day! Sounds bizarre I know, but that just how I role! LOL!
Other Musicians and bands that I love and have inspired me are: Benjamin Gate, Coldplay, Enya, One Republic, Pete Stuart, R.E.M. Red, Sheryl Crowe, Stevie Wonder, Snow Patrol, Sade, Skillet, Switchfoot, Five Iron Frenzy, and Vanessa Carlton. The most inspiring and moving songs are from Benjamin Gate. They are a Christian band and I have been listening to them for years. They broke up a couple of years ago, but Adrienne, the lead singers voice is the most amazing voice I have ever heard, she gives me the chills and her lyrics are the most heart wrenching lyrics I have ever come across! She has written so many songs that just bring me up close and personal to how I feel about Father and who he is in my life. BG is definitely up there in my book.
Movie soundtracks that I like are: Braveheart, Chronicles of Narnia, Gladiator, Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility, and The Notebook. Great music to completely chill and get lost in! I love it! All of these movies are great, but they wouldn’t be as good if they didn’t have their soundtracks to back em’ up!
Now to the indifferent and fun/loving music: Ace of Base, Amberlin, Andy Hunter, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Brandy, Chevelle, Dave Matthews Band, Duran Duran, Matchbox Twenty, Michael Buble’, Michael Jackson, Plumb, Royksopp, Squirrel Nut Zippers, and Evanescens. I think all of these bands are great to listen to! Royksopp and Andy Hunter are more of electronic/techno bands, fun and awesome to travel on long trips with. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s and Squirrel Nut Zippers are both Hyper Jazz music! Fun stuff!
Well, that about wraps up my music menu! If anyone has questions ask away! I would be glad to elaborate upon your request!
