The first most important thing I hope they would see is that I love to sing praise and worship songs to my Lord. I’d say more than 80% of my music is Christian praise and worship music, from Audio Adrenaline, Chris Tomlin, Sanctus Real, Switchfoot and everyone in-between.
None of these are things you could tell about me from the type of music I listen to, so I have to disagree that you can tell what a person is like by the music they listen to. I asked my fellow Inkies what they listen to, and I was so happy to learn they are just as varied in their music tastes as I am.
What the Inkies are listening to...Barb: Classical Music to Read By
Jennifer: Newsboys, Weird Al, Glee, Meatloaf, Amy Grant, 80s music, and movie soundtracks.
Lisa: a bit of everything, including books on tape
Gina: Toby Mac, David Crowder Band, Kelly Clarkson, Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce, Glee, and various praise and worship songs
Dina: Red, Flyleaf, Barlow Girl, Evanescense, U2, Skillet, Switchfoot, Jars of Clay and Kari Jobe
Deb: a variety from the 70s up, and a playlist just for instrumentals and movie soundtracks
Susanne: Jeremy Camp, Needtobreathe, Tenth Avenue North, Jars of Clay, and Toby Mac; banjo bluegrass, Glee, Mutemath, Temper Trap, Florence + the Machine, and New Order
Niki: Joan Jett, Carrie Underwood, the Beatles, Metallica, Hillsong, Skillet, Barlow Girl, Audio Adrenaline, the Twilight soundtrack, Motley Crue, Duran Duran, CCR, Pink, UT, Black Eyed Peas, Classical, and “Spa” music
C.J.: Classical - Beethoven, Bach, Vivaldi, Horst, the soundtrack to Henry V
Two of the Inkies have artists on their list I’ve never heard of. But there are probably artists on my list they've never heard of. We won't talk about age differences as the reason.
Is there any one song you wish you could download but can’t find anywhere? Mine is Chantilly Lace by the Big Bopper.
The strangest song I have is Chug-A-Lug by Roger Miller, and it might just be the catchiest tune, although Okie From Muskogee by Merle Haggard is another foot-tapping song that's hard to get out of your head once you've heard it.
The music that makes me the happiest are songs that speak directly about Jesus. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but if I had to, I’d say Hallelujah Jesus by Monk and Neagle.
What about you? What’s on your Ipod? What’s your favorite? What’s the strangest? Which one makes you the happiest? Do you have one you’d be embarrassed to have someone else hear?
