Newsboys (Note: Music WILL play)

Now, I’ve not been a huge fan of the Newsboys in the past. A couple of their singles were fun, but they never seemed to “hit home” like some others (Jeremy Camp, Todd Agnew). Now that they’ve been joined by dcTalk’s Michael Tait, I’ve found that I like a lot more of their songs. Not sure if it’s just the fact that I LOVED dcTalk….

Just hoping that this isn’t a VanHalen plus Gary Cherone thing…

CD Review – Jeremy Camp – Speaking Louder Than Before

Jeremy Camp‘s newest album, Speaking Louder Than Before, is now available in stores.

Jeremy Camp has been a favorite of mine since I first heard “Take My Life” from his album, Stay. (Last.fm Link to hear Take My Life)

I find that with most Christian artists, my like or dislike of their music is as much about their correlation with my spiritual mood/mode as it is about their music. With artists like Jeremy, it’s about the whole package – music, lyrics & message and how God uses or does not use it to communicate with me. I tend to purchase an album initially because the music really resonates with me.

Currently, my favorite songs from this album: Slow Down Time, Speaking Louder Than Before, Giving You All Control, There Will Be A Day. As with all of Jeremy’s albums, this will get regular rotation on my iPod.

Thanks to Yahoo, you can view the premier of the “Speaking Louder Than Before” video:

Note: The commercial that is played before the video is totally out of my hands…

Also, the CD Release Show put out by the Jeremy Camp folks…

When in doubt, bring on the music!

I don’t know what took me so long, but I finally got out my Christmas CDs. I played one song and it was like the switch was flipped. It’s one that took me a while to find. It’s David Foster’s Instrumental, Carol of the Bells. I turned it on this afternoon and played about 4 times in a row, each time dancing more and more. J5 thought I was crazy at first, but by the end he was spinning in circles with me.

The first time I heard/saw it was on our honeymoon at WDW (the mouse place). A beautifully lit arched walkway in Epc*t was orchestrated to it. John and I went again in 2003 and I caught most of the show on video. I get goosebumps every time I watch it.
