I was looking around earlier and found something like this, asking for viewers to leave their top ten songs, whether those songs describe the viewer, mean something to them, or are just plain awesome. I left my comment, then decided to make my own journal of them. Feel free to leave a song or two (or ten!) of your own choosing. Maybe make your own journal!
MoonQuest - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzeeV_Dl9gw
I like this one for the encouraging tone that anybody can relate to. Also the passion and feeling it has; not necessarily a happy peppiness, but true energy and passion.
The Fights - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oXMoPsk56Q
Are parodies allowed? Because this one is just so fun! That, along with the fact that it's about my favorite game, and that it tells a nice story.
Lift Your Head Weary Sinner (Chains) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgEAhVTjV44
I listen to a lot of Christian music, and this one just has a really good driving beat, a certain umph! to it, along with a good message.
Sparrows - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRJZQFRyZ6s
The first time I heard this song, we had just switched to a station that was playing it, and the song was already about halfway through. But I immediately knew I liked it. It's passionate, with ever so slightly sorrowful and pained undertones that somehow make the overriding joy that much better.
Build Your Kingdom Here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbdJXKqVgtg
It's hard to not smile while listening to this or singing it. My youth choir and I sang this at the end of one of our concerts, and despite all the strained voices and sore feet (we stood a lot when we sang), it was as if a party had just entered full swing, and we had just as much fun on the encore.
Thief - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDw_9vvLcWg
As you've probably guessed by now, I really enjoy passionate songs--though, passion isn't always happy. This song really reveals what it must have been like for that thief. ...But at the same time, it's sung from his position, as if comparing ourselves to him. There is a sad, tragic story there, but there's also hope.
Times - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAVHeVDML5k
Long exhale ...This one really hit deep the first time I heard it, and it still draws out a bit of emotion from me when I listen to it now. I identify with the first verse through and through, and that's why the bridge is such a nice reminder for me.
Failure to Excommunicate - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxrNvIcHUPo
I like a little heavy metal every now and then, but also a bit of slow music. This one's got them both, along with an address to the current state of events for Christians. It's also a reminder to who I should be, in a way.
Keep Walkin' - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MX1G71WK-FA
What can I say? I like a good bass line!
Seriously though, the beat, the message, the tone; I like it all!
Proof of Your Love - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-2dKOfbC9c
This song sings all about what one of my overall missions should be. It's something I ask for off and on, though I feel like I should ask more often.
