I love music. I have loved music since before I was even able to read. I had favorite little 45 records and didn’t know which songs I liked on them, so my Mom would put a sticker on the side that I liked best. I may not need stickers to know my favorite songs anymore, but I still love music, and always have.
I thought it would be a fun glimpse into the music that I like to listen to by hitting shuffle on my iPod and just listing what comes up…
1. Run-Around by Blues Traveler
“Oh, once upon a midnight dreary I woke with something in my head I couldn’t escape the memory of a phone call and what you said…”
2. Flood by Jars of Clay
“Rain, rain on my face. It hasn’t stopped raining for days. My world is a flood. Slowly I become one with the mud…”
3. How Was It for You? by James
“Well they said you are as good as you look but that would be impossible. For you look better than the face of God on a sunny day…”
4. Catch by The Cure
“Yeah, I know who you remind me of - a girl I think I used to know. Yeah, I’d see her when the days got colder, on those days when it felt like snow…”
5. Light Up My Room by Barenaked Ladies
“A hydro-field cuts through my neighborhood, somehow that always just makes me feel good. I can put a spare bulb in my hand, and light up my yard…”
6. Rain King by Counting Crows
“When I think of Heaven, deliver me in a black-winged bird, I think of flying…”
7. Just a Girl by No Doubt
“Take this pink ribbon off my eyes, I’m exposed and it’s no big surprise. Don’t you think I know exactly where I stand? This world is forcing me to hold your hand…”
8. At First Sight by The Stems (I got this off of the Young Einstein soundtrack, which I love)
“Just say the word, and I would die for you. And I’d be a flower, if you wanted to. ‘Cause I never met anyone quite like you…”
9. Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day
“I walk a lonely road, the only one that I have ever known. Don’t know where it goes, but it’s only me and I walk alone…”
10. Come to the Water by Matt Maher
“And let all who search, let them come to the water. And let all who have nothing, let them come to the Lord…”
With over 1300 songs on my iPod, this was just a tiny scratch on the surface. I would love to see what randomly comes up on your iPod or whatever you like to listen to music on. Post in the comments or write your own post about it and leave me a link.
