music that moves me

Saturday, March 12, 2011

Here, on this sunny Saturday, we're talking music that moves me. I'll start out with my upcoming concert season. 3 concerts in a month. Which is really something considering I attended one concert all of last year.

1) The Decemberists. Seeing them on April 23rd with my sisters and brother-in-law. They'll play amazing music. They'll use big words. I'll be happy.

2) The Civil Wars. Seeing them on March 31st, again with my sisters. Beyond happy about this, since I adore them. I literally took forever to decide which video to link to here. I stuck with an original - probably the most famous track of their album, even though it has an appallingly low number of hits, in my opinion. I will say though - their covers are just indescribably spectacular and compelling. Check out You Are My Sunshine, I Want You Back, or my personal favorite Billie Jean on YouTube.

3. John Mark McMillan - Seeing him on April 8th. My Valentine's Day present from my husband. This song moves me like none other. Resurrection, rolling the gravestones, adoring the Son of Glory drenched in love - the song is brilliantly written, and I have not felt so stirred in worship by a song for a very long time.

4. Here's an oldie, but worth the time - and my children can sing this song so loudly you can't hear yourself think. They ask to listen to it nearly every time we get in the car. You should hear them on the last chorus. Wait, if we've driven within a 2-mile range of your house, you probably have heard them on the last chorus. It's hilarious.

5. Finally, some of the smooth, smooth voice of a Mr. Adam Levine. Definitely not children's music. I did try to pick a live performance video - they tend to be safer than music videos. Mmm. Adam Levine. He makes me smile. And that's all I'm going to say about that.
