You guys. I am so excited to share this.
I really, really love music.
My favorite "genre," believe it or not, is the sort of Contemporary Christian sound - like - Kenneth Cope, Hilary Weeks, Julie de Azevedo, Michael McLean... (all of these are particularly LDS artist, but that's not really the point)... Could listen to it all day, every day.
After that - I love country (from Carrie Underwood to George Strait - just about any of them!) and adult easy listening (like Chicago, Celine, you get the picture). I'm sounding like such a goob, but I do not care. I am just being honest.
So many of the current hits (on the radio) are so eeh, and really lack that "it factor" that makes it appeal to me. But, every so often I'll find some newer music that will have "it."
Well, my friends - it happened yesterday - and I haven't been able to get this song out of my head! I realize that to have qualified my musical taste at the very beginning of the post as favoring Contemporary Christian music may make you hurry to get away from here - but seriously give it a chance!
Lastly - I must say that I think I have been able to somehow identify what the "it factor" of all of this is, at least in my humble opinion. I think "it" is - the quality of a song to be non-offensive to anyone. My Pa, your boss, my grand daddy, your daughter, my son - Anyone. UN-OFFENSIVE music, people. That's what I'm talking about. Not to mention the lyrics are sweet as pie.
Here. Take a listen. "1234" by Plain White T's. You can thank me later. :)
This one goes out to the 4 "easiest to love" men in my life. Rodney & The 3 Steelboys.
