What Music Speaks to You or Just Makes you Smile?

What music have you recently discovered (or rediscovered that really speaks to you? or just makes you smile :)?

For me its Ziggy Marley.  Its just so positive and upbeat.  Its got the roots reggae feel like his dad’s music did, but he adds in just the right mix of pop hooks and melodies. It just makes me smile.

If you have kids and would like a children’s album that your kids can listen to with out going crazy check out Ziggy’s new album Family Time

Beautiful Day

Take a look into the sky
‘Cause the world is not so pretty
Free myself from worries
So I can see
It’s just a beautiful day
It’s just a beautiful day

You could be sad
But I rather you not be
Don’t dwell on the negative
Just the positivity
And it’s a beautiful day
It’s just a beautiful day

We’re always trying to satisfy these wants and needs
Take you some time for that inner peace
When your eyes are open
You’ll see things differently
There’s so much gloom
Hiding the reality
It’s just a beautiful day
Yeah, It’s just a beautiful day

Take a look into the sky
Wake up
Take a look into the sky
Keep your head up high
Take a look into the sky

I take a look into the sky
‘Cause the world is not so pretty
Free myself from worries
So I can see
It’s just a beautiful day

I could be sad
But you rather me not be
Don’t dwell on the negative just the positivity
And it’s a beautiful day
And it’s a beautiful day

We’re always trying to satisfy these wants and needs
Take you some time for that inner peace
When our eyes are open
We’ll see things differently
There’s so much gloom
Hiding the reality
It’s just a beautiful day
A beautiful day

Take a look into the sky
Wake up
Take a look into the sky
Look in the sky
Keep your head up high

It’s just a beautiful day
I know it’s a beautiful day
It’s just a beautiful day
I know it’s a beautiful day
No one can take that away
It’s just a beautiful day
I know it’s a beautiful day
Don’t you feel no way
It’s just a beautiful day

Extremely Powerful Video.

DO NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO IF YOU ARE EASILY OFFENDED

I ran across this Smashing Pumpkins video on You Tube. For those who live in comfortable Christian circles whats portrayed in this video is unimaginable, but this is reality for many people. We need to remember that Jesus came to save people like this, and as the body of Christ. It is our calling to come along side people like this and love them. I can say with out a doubt that it is only by God’s Grace that I am not sitting in an alley somewhere caught in the stranglehold of addiction.

This is a POWERFUL VIDEO. I may be crazy but I think this would be a good video to be shown in Church on a Sunday morning.

Cool Online Radio

I love music, but I usually can’t stand the radio. Even with all the choices on the internet I have a hard time finding radio stations that  play a good mix of music that I like. I tried Jango for awhile, and wasn’t to impressed. Last week I ran across Pandora.com. I love it. I can actually listen to the radio and like almost everything I hear. The cool thing is that if you don’t like a song you just click a box and you never have to hear it again. The more you customize the station the better it gets.

If you want you can check out my station list here

One thing the world could definately use more of.

A Song you won’t hear in church

Kid Rock has a great new song that you will probably never hear in church.

Why do you think most churches would never sing this song?

My wife says its because its to honest.
