Where Bloggers Live – my favorite music

Here we are and another month has passed since the last Where Bloggers Live – if you haven’t visited before, it’s a look into six different bloggers lives – things about them, things about their homes, etc.  This month is our favorite music.  Should be pretty entertaining!  Mine might be a long post, so take a seat, get comfortable and give a listen.

So, I’ve always LOVED music.  Took piano lessons for years as a child – was organist in my church back in another life and actually did some singing.  Now mind you – I was never very good, but I loved it.  Grew up listening to my Dad’s radio play Country/Western and still really like ‘some of it’.

So, what’s my favorite music.    We were involved in a lot of music back in the 70’s when the Contemporary Christian Music really got started.  Don Francisco, Carman, the Gaithers, Andrae Crouch, Keith Green, and so many more really good ones.

The music from then is still relevant today, and I still listen to them often.  Give a listen to Carman sing “The Champion” and “Sunday’s on the Way”

Loved hearing Andrae Crouch sing Soon and Very Soon and so many more.

My birthday present one year was to go to a Phil Driscoll concert – we had a front row seat and man, can that man  play a trumpet.

One of  THE most powerful is by Don Francisco, and still one of my favorites – “He’s Alive”

This song by Mercy Me “I Can Only Imagine” seriously makes me think.

Chris Tomlin sings about my current favorite, You’re a Good Good Father

And current really powerful song is Raise a Hallelujah

I could go on and on and on, but need to give you links to my blogger friends who are sharing their favorite music this month.

I am glad to be reminded of I Can Only Imagine. Beautiful. Love the mention of a symphony of prayer in the Raise a Hallelujah video. I was not raised in a religious family and rarely went to church. Had just begun going fairly regularly when I met PC, who is a preacher’s son who grew up in church. We have found a church that speaks to both of us and Raise a Hallelujah is one of the songs sung during praise and worship. Paul grew up with the old hymns. And while I like some of them, I think… Read more »

I really like that Mercy Me song and Raise a Hallelujah gets stuck in my head, such a powerful song to be humming all day! 🙂

Hope you are having a good week 🙂 It’s a rainy one here!

Every song you mentioned brings back so many fond memories for me. I can’t believe I forgot about Carman and Andrea Crouch.

I am going to enjoy revisiting your post this week to check out your music. I need some new tunes for my “churchy” playlist. It’s ironic that my favorite spiritual song of all is not able to be on my playlist. It’s a beautiful choral song that I just can’t find anywhere but here: https://www.jwpepper.com/sheet-music/media-player.jsp?&productID=10069890&type=audio

I’m most excited to hear He’s Alive Thanks for sharing your tunes, Iris!
