Turn up the good stuff!

Day 10:  Name 10 of you favorite songs on your music player and say why you like them.

These are in no particular order...I love music...I could go on all day, so I will try to keep this short and sweet.

1. Chem 6A - Switchfoot
This song is one of my favorites of all time.  I have been a switchfoot fan for a long time even before they became cool.  Their first CD I think will always be my favorite.  There first 3 are the classics ans will never grow old.  I love their newer stuff too but the those will forever be on top
2. Carolina on my Mind - James Taylor
James Taylor.  He has one of the best voices in the world and I could listen to him all day.  Espcially this song.  it is so smooth and makes me really think about a place that I love.  I don't know where will be in the years to come but this song will always be ther to remind me of this place.
3. It Never Entered My Mind - Miles Davis
This song it just so smooth and lovely. I love jazz because it is just the music.  No voices, no editting, no enhancers. Just music.  You can here every instrument and know exactly what they are.
4. Amazed - Desperation Band
I love this song because it starts out with the line. "You dance over me.  While I am unaware.  You sing all around, but i never hear the sound."  I think that it is so powerful because it just makes you think of how God, even we aren't aware, is thinking of us and beckoning us to come closer.  Even we aren't "in the mood" and we are busy doing are own thing, he is forever working in our lives and wanting to make them more beautiful.  The chorus of this song says, "Lord, I'm Amazed by you. How you love me." Nobody loves us like he does with such passion and followthrough.  He is always there. Always.
5. 13 Letters - 116 clique
Best rap album of all time. 116 clique is all the best christian rap artist on the same cd rapping together.  I can't pick just one song.  The premise of the the cd is based on the 13 letters written by Paul.  It breaks them down and does it so well. if you have not heard it you shoud.
 6. Let it be me - Ray LaMontange
Ray LaMontange just has one of those voices that i can never get enough of.  I love this song in particular because I think that, in some parts, it speaks to the way that God feels about us. God wants to be out refuge and place of safety.  However he will never force us to do it, you have to make the choice to let him be the one that you run to. 
7. Rebirthing - Skillet
Skillet has always been one of my al time favorite for one one primary reason (other then the fact that they make awesome music).  Their message has never changed.  They proclaim the name of Jesus just as much now as they did on their first CD, probably more.  They are never afraid to speak life in their songs.
8. High of 75 - Relient K
Favorite part about this song is the remider that no matter how my flesh feels, I always have a reason to be joyous.  Relient K has a song for ever situation in life. 
9. Head Carolina, Tails California - Jo Dee Messina
This song has been a favorite ever since I was a kid.  It is one of those that you can just belt out.  It is always seemed so fantastical, just dropping everything and just going.
10. Who needs air - The Classic Crime
"When you've got what i've got...Who needs air"  This song is about just diving head first into everything that God is and everything that he has for you.  What's not to like?
