What kind of music do you listen to?





COURTNEY WRITES: What music do you listen to?

I’ve been looking for some new songs, and I’d love to know what you guys like. It doesn’t necessarily have to be “Christian” music but it needs to be clean. Anything from Sovereign Grace to Twenty-One Pilots is welcome.

  • Hey there Courtney! =)
    I love, Love, LOVE music! And I listen to all varieties and genres…though I avoid profane and dirty songs….
    I’m not sure what genres, decades, and styles you like, but as for Christian; here’s some artists and some of my favorite songs by them. =)
    -Matt Maher- Lord I Need You; Hold us Together; All the People Said Amen. -Casting Crowns- Courageous; Your Love is Extravagant; Spirit Wind; Jesus Friend of Sinner; (and LOTs of others!
    -TobyMac is great if you’re into more rap/popish stuff…!- Speak Life; Favorite Song; Made to Love; Lose My Soul
    -Anthem Lights!!!- Can’t Get Over You; I Wanna Know You Like That; K-Love Fan Awards Mashup (they are a crossover band and do lots of mashups)
    -MercyMe- Greater; I Can Only Imagine; Spoken For; Move; Shake
    -Mandisa- Good Morning; Overcomer
    -Jamie Grace- Hold Me; You Lead
    -Francesca Battistelli- I’m Letting Go; Angel by Your Side; Free To Be Me There’s a song called “Hope Can Change Everything” which is a collaboration of Christian artists…
    (I’m a little out of touch with what’s “new” because I’ve been out of
    the U.S. for 7 months now. Sadly, I’m more out of touch with the
    Christian music than anything cuz it’s not publicized as much online and
    things…. =P )
    —Everyone’s definition of “clean” is a little different, but here’s some other pretty clean secular songs that I enjoy. (Some old, some new…you may know some of them) =)
    “Thinking Out Loud” Ed Sheeran.
    “Style” Taylor Swift
    “Rude” MAGIC
    “Something in the Water” Carrie Underwood
    “All American Girl” Carrie Underwood
    Shania Twain has quite a few fun songs! =D (Any Man of Mine & Man I Feel Like a Woman are some of my favs)
    “Man In the Mirror” Michael Jackson
    “Best Day of My Life” American Authors
    “Owl City is a good band..! (also a crossover)
    “I Don’t Dance” Lee Brice
    “Marry Me” Jason Derulo
    “Lean on Me” Michael Bolton
    “Bless the Broken Road” Rascal Flatts
    “Life is a Highway” Rascal Flats (this song is on the movie Cars)
    “Mayberry” Rascal Flatts
    “Long Black Train” Josh Turner
    “Why Don’t We Just Dance” Josh Turner
    “Shut Up and Dance” Walk the Moon
    “Wagon Wheel” Darius Rucker
    “I’m Yours” Jason Mraz
    “You Raise Me Up” Josh Groban (he just does my favorite cover…tons of people sing it)
    “One Of the Guys” Kellie Pickler
    “Small Town Girl” Kellie Pickler
    Peter Hollens is an AWESOME singer! He does covers of LOTS of songs and records himself over creating like a one man all acapella band! It’s super cool!!!

    Hope these help some! =D

    • But I’m still working on my comment!!! πŸ˜› You beat me yet again!

      • haha…Sorry Lauren… =P you and I seem to battle for first comment often! Lol!! πŸ˜‰

    • I approve of the exclamation points after Anthem Lights!!! πŸ˜‰

      • LOLOL!! I know right???? They are AWESOME!

        • Yes!! I’m kind of disappointed that their original music isn’t specifically Christian anymore, but they still make fantastic music. :)

          • Same.. =P It is kind of sad how some Christian bands tend to do that… =/ but yes! I do love their music! AND all their mashups!!! =D

    • Regan Seba

      Josh Groban! He’s awesome! Some friends of mine hooked me on his music this summer…

      • I ADORE his voice!!! He’s SO talented!

  • Music is one of my loves, so I listen to music just about all the time. I won’t even both to keep this short then… But just for the record, anything by Andrew Peterson, Nichole Nordeman, and Chris Tomlin are great.
    I’d recommend looking up these:
    1.) Andrew Peterson’s “In the Night”
    2.) Nichole Nordeman’s “Fool For You”
    3.) Chris Tomlin’s “Indescribable”
    4.) Sanctus Real’s “Whatever You’re Doing”
    5.) Remedy Drive’s “All Along”
    6.) Hawk Nelson’s “Every Beat of My Broken Heart” and “Drops in The Ocean”
    7.) Colton Dixon’s “Through All of It”
    8.) Casting Crown’s “Courageous” and “The Altar And The Door”
    9.) Audio Adrenaline’s “Kings And Queens”
    10.) Big Daddy Weave’s “What Life Would Be Like”
    11.) Mark Schultz’s “Letters From War” (I LOOOVE this one…) and “He Is”
    12.) Tenth Avenue North’s “By Your Side” (They have other good ones, too.)
    13.) MercyMe’s “Only You Remain” and “Free”. Actually, all of the songs on their “Generous Mr. Lovewell” album.
    While I enjoy listening to mostly Christian music, I do admit to listening to a few choice secular songs every now and then. Try U2’s “Songs of Innocence” album. I don’t listen to a whole lot of secular stuff, but I also like Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song”. I also love 80s pop (which, some can be dirty, but those wouldn’t be the ones I would recommend obviously – I listen to songs like “Beat It”, “You Spin Me Round”, and “Take On Me”). But I mostly listen to Christian music (which technically gets classified as “rock”, although I wouldn’t call it that personally…). Anyway, there are some of my favorites!

    • we have similar tastes! I LOVE 80’s too! hahaha!!

      • I blame my parents for the 80s thing… πŸ˜‰

        • hehe…totally… πŸ˜‰

    • Great, now I have “Take On Me” stuck in my head. XD Nice list! πŸ˜‰

      • Hee hee. You’re welcome! πŸ˜‰

    • Our lists overlap a bit… :)

    • *Sits here just being like, “yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Mhm. Yes.”*

      (And Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song” is really good.)

    • Kate I.

      Yeasssss! Andrew Peterson!!!!!

    • Clare

      I love Casting Crown’s Courageous! Best EVER!

  • Oh, my…. this could get long. So, I listen to a lot of Christian music, which I’ll just say right off the bat that Andrew Peterson has the best out there today, imho :). Just sayin’. But I also listen to Shane and Shane, Leeland, We are They, the Getty’s, Galkin Evangelistic Team (for a little slower more traditional music), Matt Redman, and occasional single songs, such as “Worn” by Tenth Avenue North or “Whatever You’re Doing” by Sanctus Real and “No Longer Slave” by Jonathan David.

    Then I listen to a good bit of instrumental, particularly David Nevue and Dan Gibson, but also R.C. Nakai, some Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Ennio Morricone, Hans Zimmer, the Last of the Mohicans soundtrack, the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack, and The Last Samurai soundtrack.

    I also like some 80-90’s pop, so “Eye of the Tiger” and “Beat It” are two I listen to occasionally. The 80’s-90’s also gave some great Christian music in the shape of Michael Card and my favorite artist ever, Rich Mullins. So there’s still plenty to choose from from those years.

    I also listening to a smattering of Country Western, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Kenny Rogers, the Highwaymen, etc. Honestly, this was a taste I acquired from my dad more than it was something I really just enjoy their music. Their music more just brings back good memories.

    Also, the Fiddler on the Roof and the Phantom of the Opera soundtracks are two that I listen to semi-frequently since they bring back good memories from my family’s past. But I would recommend them as well. Hope that was long enough for you!

    • *sings* If I were a rich man…yabba dabba dbba dooba dbba deidle deidle dum! =P

      • Haylie

        That made me smile sooo big!

      • Ooohhh, very nice! He knows it! Any other solo volunteers?

        • Hahahaha if only you knew…my and my dad’s concert debut was a benefit concert where one of the other performers sang this…it’s a fun piece to listen to and to play. =P

          • My brother and I have the whole thing memorized in order to spring at just the right moment. You know, somebody makes that “If I just had a little more money” comment… ya can deck ’em with a Fiddler on the Roof one-two combo. :)

          • Hahaha yeah. XD During one of the rehearsals, the dude that was singing this was like “I’ll fill my yard with chicks and [instead of turkeys] geese and RATS I DID IT AGAIN!!! And so ever since then it’s been a joke to sing rats there haha. =P

          • Ha, ha, that’s great!

          • MimeforJesus

            That’s great!

          • Haylie

            Lol πŸ˜›

        • MimeforJesus

          I kinda have the wrong voice for it, but I know the song!

      • Oh my word Josh…

    • Haylie

      YES! Phantom of the Opera!!! Good on ya bro!

    • I also ADORE Les Miserables soundtrack!! GAA! Listen to it ALL THE TIME!

    • Not to make you jealous or anything, but……
      I have an opportunity to see Andrew Peterson this Friday in concert. πŸ˜‰

      • Seriously? That is pretty awesome!! Have you ever listened to his music before?

        • Yes, I used to listen to him some growing up and one of my roommates is obsessed with him so she plays his stuff a lot, too.
          Did you know he does some of the singing for the Veggie Tales?

          • I did not know that. And I’m gonna have a roommate writing that about me one day. :)

          • Learn somethin’ new every day. πŸ˜‰ haha! Yes, you probably will have that roommate. πŸ˜‰

          • Gah, I found that out recently. I actually started laughing…

          • I know it is pretty awesome! πŸ˜‰

          • MimeforJesus

            What?! I’ve gotta check this out!

          • Yeah, thats your fun fact for the day! πŸ˜‰

          • Haylie

            Wait, for real? :O

    • *wrinkles nose at Willie Nelson*

      • Hey, I never said I was crazy about him as a guy! I don’t like most of his stuff, but I do like “On the Road Again” (not sure why) and “Dropped in to See what Condition my Condition was in”. :)

    • Clare

      Love the suggestions Taylor! I love ALL OF THEM!

  • Right now some of my favorites include:

    *Anthem Lights
    *Owl City
    *Lauren Daigle

    *Aaron Gillespie
    *Chris August
    *Building 429
    *Capital Kings

    This is liable to change in the next 45 minutes when I discover some other amazing artist, but that’s just right off the top of my head.

    • Haylie

      Aww, you beat me! Still working on my comment XD

      • Haha, well I’m sitting here like, “And… and… oh yeah what about…” so yours will probably be better thought out. πŸ˜›

        • -Anthem Lights
          -Owl City
          -JJ Heller
          -Plumb
          -I Am They
          -Lauren Daigle
          -Tenth Avenue North

          I LOVE ALL OF THEM.

          • How did I forget JJ Heller?!?!?

          • Haha! πŸ˜€ Have you listened to her new album yet? It’s soooooooooo amazing.

          • YES! It’s awesome! :))

          • MimeforJesus

            Rachel! Haven’t seen you in forever! How are you doing? (Specifically about your move… but also in general. :)

          • Haha hey Laura!

            I’m doing pretty good! We are all moved into our house, the proud owners of eighty-five million nine chickens and get to view some of the most amazing Oklahoma Sunsets ever, so that’s good. Not a big fan of the Oklahoma sized bugs/spiders/scorpions that seem to abound, but… I’ll get over it. :)

            How are you doing? How’s school going?

          • MimeforJesus

            I’m doing pretty well! School is trying to take over my life right now, which isn’t the best way to live this year but it’ll do. :) I’m with ya on the scorpions. I’ve heard about them from siblings who lived in California, and I really don’t want to meet them in real life.

          • Aww… I’m sorry! School can be so crazy. πŸ˜›
            Praying for you!

            I’m not a fan of any kind of bug, so scorpions are just… yeah. Not big on that bug life. πŸ˜›

          • MimeforJesus

            Thank you! I really appreciate it. :)
            Yeah… ick.

          • My favorite track is Daylight. It’s in the key of A on piano.

        • SAMEE! My comment was already long, but I could keep going! πŸ˜›

        • Haylie

          Probably not, lol πŸ˜›

    • Anthem Lights, Owl City, Lauren Daigle!! You hit it out of the park with your first three!! πŸ˜€

  • Haylie

    Oh boy, this could be a long comment πŸ˜‰

    Okay, so I LOVE music. I can appreciate anything that’s well done and clean, but for the most part I listen to Christian. (And classical… it’s so old-fashioned sounding, but c’mon, classical music is an art form in itself! Piano Guys, anyone?)

    My favorite songs change frequently, but here are some that are really good :)
    1-“Start Over” by Royal Tailor (actually anything by Royal Tailor… they are my favorite band!)
    2-“Worn”, and “You are More” by Tenth Avenue North
    3-“Drops in the Ocean”, “Crazy Love”, and “Eggshells” by Hawk Nelson
    4-“Overwhelmed” by Big Daddy Weave
    5-“Love Feels Like” by D.C. Talk

    I could go on, but I have to go study. *walks off with all sorts of songs stuck in head*

    • LOVE the Piano Guys!!!!….and basically everything else you mentioned… πŸ˜‰

    • Piano Guys, Royal Tailor… Let’s just say I love your list! πŸ˜‰

      • Haylie

        Aww, thanks πŸ˜€

  • My current top 10 which will probably have changed by the time I hit “post” haha.

    1.The Weight of Living pt. 1 by Bastille

    2.Qui-Gon’s Funeral by John Williams

    3.Throne Room and End Title by John Williams

    4.Laughter Lines by Bastille

    5.Budapest by George Ezra

    6.Pictures at an Exhibition Suite (orchestrated by Ravel) by Modest
    Mussorgsky, esp. the first Promenade and Bydlo

    7.Anything from Carmen by Georges Bizet

    8. Linus and Lucy by Vince Guaraldi

    9.Heroic Polonaise by Frederic Chopin (it’s a plus that I can play it haha)

    10.Anything else by John Williams

    Honorable mentions: Jerry Goldsmith, the Gettys, Danse Macabre and Bacchanal by Saint-Saens, many more things that I can’t think of.

    What can I say? I have strange musical tastes. =P

    • I’m going to be the only person here that doesn’t have ANY CCM on their list (except for the Gettys but they don’t really count haha, they’re too good to be CCM). #CantStandCCM =P

    • HYMNS!!! AND ENNIO MORRICONE!!!! AND EREV SHEL SHOSHANIM!!! AND OMGOSH I FORGOT SO MUCH!!!

      • Haylie

        ikr?

      • Ennio Morricone… now you’re talking. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly… Perfection!

    • Excuuuuse me young man, you forgot to add “He’s A Pirate” by Klaus Badelt. Carry on…

      • Mehhhhh….tbh I dislike most of the POTC music. OHHHHH but you reminded of LOTR music, thanks!!! XD

        • That’s a shame. A true shame. My brother caught a picture of me dancing to “The Black Pearl” a couple nights ago. I love it…

          • It just carries the message so well… It’s probably my second favorite soundtrack.

          • Yep. I guess it doesn’t help in my case that it’s really the only track I listen to… I mean, I like some of the music from the Narnia movies, but the music that Badelt writes is just soooo, I don’t know, so awesome, so adventurous, so… yeah.

          • Yes! I was trying to describe it, and I gave up. It just carries a message… I think your word “adventurous” is the best one to describe it.

          • It makes you not only try to picture what’s going on, but it makes you feel it, too. Haha, maybe that’s just me. I get too emotionally involved in music.

          • Yep, I agree. Howard Shore’s music is like that as well for some of his LOTR rings songs. I have never watched it, but you can imagine what’s happening just from the musical emotion.

        • That’s wrong… POTC is terrific!

          • *sticks out tongue at Taylor and Lauren* =P

          • Hey!!! I can’t help it I have sophisticated taste in music… πŸ˜‰ Oh wait, you have “Linus and Lucy” on your list. Nvrmind.

          • Hey, I can play it on piano so that’s always a plus. =P

          • Snap! πŸ˜‰ I heard a girl at my church play it a few years ago. It’s pretty fun to just watch someone play it!

          • It’s better to actually play it though haha, or shake along with a shaker. You should learn it! =)

        • MimeforJesus

          POTC?

  • Ok, so I have a weird assortment of music I enjoy. I mostly listen to Christian music because it is often times the most up-lifting and encouraging, so when I am discouraged or having a hard day then one of the things that brings me the most comfort is to listen to encouraging music.
    So here are a few bands that I enjoy
    -Rend Collective (I love their song My Lighthouse)
    -The Sons of Korah
    -Fernando Ortega
    -Casting Crowns
    -Jars of Clay
    -Need to Breath
    -Caedmon’s Call
    -The Grey Havens (really awesome music! If you like C.S. Lewis or LOTR then you will probably like them)
    I also like some oldies music like, stuff you have never heard of probably. πŸ˜‰

    • I LOVE Needtobreathe and Rend Collective!!! AND I love oldies!! Like, are you talking Frankie Valli, Roy Orbison, Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, and Louis Armstrong kind of “oldies”??? =D

      • Haha! I actually haven’t heard of any of those oldies except maybe the last one. I am thinkin’ stuff like Peter, Paul, and Mary, The Parable, Phil Keaggy, Marty Robbins, Johnny Cash, etc. πŸ˜‰

        • hahaha! Okay, so more old country? I like Johnny Cash and Marty Robbins a lot! =D

          • Haha! Yes, I guess so! πŸ˜‰

  • My top two bands:
    FIREFLIGHT (listen to the songs For Those Who Wait and You Decide)
    KING AND COUNTRY (listen to Matter & Run Wild, Live Free)
    These two bands have put a new twist on Christian music and I love them. If you haven’t ever heard their stuff, you might really want to check it out!

  • Gabrielle

    OH MY GOODNESS!! CAN’T WAIT TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION, but I don’t have time at the moment. STAY TUNED!!……………. πŸ˜‰

  • Julia Wellham

    Check out Dominic Balli’s music. He is a Christian artist and sings social justice music. You can download his album Not For Sale for free from NoiseTrade. http://noisetrade.com/dominicballi/not-for-sale He has great lyrics.

  • Kate I.

    I don’t like “fluffy” Christian music that has wayyy too much repetition and the words just don’t speak to the character of God. I like convicting and raw Christian music. I love love love Andrew Peterson and Steven Curtis Chapman.
    I’m disappointed that some Christian bands are all about making happy, sugar-coated music that encourages us to find strength in ourselves…and throw a little God in there.
    That’s not how worship should be. It is our eyes focused completely on God’s perfect strength and not on ourselves. It can also show our frustrations and vulnerability towards God. Which is why I like Andrew Peterson so much! My favorites include “Come Back Soon”, “the Reckoning”, “Holy is the Lord” and “Hosanna”, “After the Last Tear Falls”
    I listen to secular music too. Coldplay, Sam Smith and One Republic are pretty great:)

    • Yay for Andrew Peterson lover!!!!! :)

      • Kate I.

        Haha I just replied to you for liking Andrew Peterson!

        • Haha, yeah I saw that right after I posted that comment. πŸ˜›

    • Andrew Peterson is being mentioned a lot… cause he’s awesome! I love all those songs! “After the Last Tear Falls” I’ve spent so much time listening to on repeat! And “The Reckoning”! But don’t forget “The Cornerstone” and “In the Night”!

      • Kate I.

        Oops! haha those too!

        • How could you forget them?! :) jk, he’s got a lot!

          • Kate I.

            haha I know. Its kinda hard to mention all of them because so many of his songs are so great!! I forgot Dancing in the Minefields too…yikes

          • *Here I go barging in again* *Sorry*
            Let’s go dancing in the minefields… Let’s go sailing in the storms….

          • It’ll be harder than we dream, but I believe that’s what the promise is for…

          • Haha, thank you for singing with me. :)

          • Kate I.

            I would keep going, but we’ll probably just spam this thread singing together:D haha

          • Ya know what, I don’t get to talk to people anymore, and this is a fun thread that’s just asking for off-topic conversations, and it’s kind of already ruined anyway. πŸ˜›

          • Kate I.

            hahaha yessss. I miss my snark shark twin on Revive, but now we can spam this thread on the Reb!! YASSSS

          • Bwahahaha!!!

          • I couldn’t resist… besides, it’s been too long!

          • C’mon, don’t tell me your ears aren’t feeling better now. I can’t say I don’t miss it though.

          • No!!! I miss my singing buddy in choir! You sounded awesome… and I had a blast. Until you just had to make some comment about my knuckles popping… or my book position. :)

          • Kate I.

            You guys sang together in the church choir?

          • Yeppers! It was fun.

          • Kate I.

            Aww that’s so cute…and fun hahaha.

          • It was a blast… besides, she could keep me on key. Ha, ha

          • Kate I.

            You guys are so great together…now go start your own band!

          • We sang in an ensemble together too… but I don’t really have a place in the band. I don’t play any band instruments. I’d have to pull off a Pentatonix stunt there.

          • C’mon man, you can do the piano. That should qualify if it doesn’t. Okay, so it probably doesn’t, but still.

          • I don’t think it does… but hey, if we started it, we make the rules. :) A piano is allowed… cause pianos are awesome!

          • Kate I.

            PENTATONIX!!!! Do ittttt. Ya’ll could really kill it with the harmony:)

          • Haha, love your enthusiasm there Kate! πŸ˜‰

          • Ahem, I object. If that was true, then we must have been off-key together.

          • THAT’S BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO DO AND YOUR KNUCKLES MADE A DISGUSTING NOISE AND IT’S NOT GOOD FOR YOU AND I WAS TRYING TO HELP AND BE A GOOD FRIEND AND STUDENT.

          • Okay, mother, if you say so. The knuckles is a habit I’m breaking. The choir book is still a consistent infraction. I argue that there is a reason the pew in front of you is the perfect height it is.

          • Good then. I hope it sticks.

          • My choir book infraction?

          • Of course TayRay. I hope that you keep disregarding that and continue on doing what you’re not supposed to. *Tim Hawkins ears moment*

          • I was waiting for it…

      • Funny, I didn’t even know that there were other AP fans until this past year…

        • Not even me? Actually, I guess that’s right. I wasn’t crazy about him til this year. Now I listen to his stuff at least once every couple days!

        • Kate I.

          Right?? People are just like “OMD Jesus Culture, Rend Collective and King and Country.” *and this is me in a corner all alone liking Andrew Peterson…*

          • Yes girl!! Me too.

          • Kate I.

            Wait did you reply to yourself? haha snark shark:D

          • Haha, no I replied to you, but it does look that way!!

          • *cough* Although, I am known to talk to myself. Frequently. As in on an hourly basis.

          • Me too… I need professional advice sometimes. πŸ˜› jk

          • I keep hearing that one… But I don’t seem to possess the same pro inside. All I get is stupid advice…

          • I get that sometimes too… usually when I have a really dumb idea (you should jump this creek). Then I ask myself, “Self, should I jump this creek?” My professional self says, “What, are you an idiot? That creek is like 20 feet wide!” My fun self says, “Sure ya can!!!”

            When I’m drying off again back up on the bank, I usually start reconsidering which side of my brain I should listen to… until next time.

          • *Dismal nod* I have those conversations all the time. Hee hee, I actually convinced Ryan once that I was trying to catch my sanity. I was pretending I could see it floating around in the air, and I was pretending to try to catch it. You shoulda seen his face….

          • Oh, man, I can picture that PERFECTLY! His face particularly… I think we made him wonder about his own sanity sometimes when we were together…

          • Hehehe. You mean in regard to Calvinism or Andrew Peterson? πŸ˜‰

          • Both. And Rich Mullins… and random books…

          • Good times…

          • Yes, ma’am! They were. Still are. If we hadn’t had those times, we wouldn’t be the friends we are now. And they ain’t over… cause you gotta come back to Texas and visit sometime!

          • Next summer dearie. I’m counting the days.

          • I’m clearing my calendar…If I can’t wait that long, can I come up there?

          • Yeah, could you come sometime like this weekend?? That would be great. Thanks.

          • Hmm… well, I’d have to get my license before then and steal a car. Or somehow make enough money to buy a car, which is probably not possible to do honestly. :) Then I’d have to sneak out of the house, figure out my route, and show up at your door. Which would probably be answer by your mom who would wonder why I am standing on her front porch…

          • On second thought, maybe it would be easier if you got super powers and just flew up here…

          • Maybe… Maybe we could meet part way… say Malawi?

          • Sometimes, I think you’re pretty smart. Others, I think you’re genius.

          • It’s a deal then. :) But you have to go through periods of thinking, “How did we wind up friends again? This guy is a weird-O!” Cause I think that… about myself. :)

          • Mmm, sometimes you surprise me with your weirdness. But I think I’ve developed an immunity to most of it by now.

          • Ha, ha, it’s a part of friendship…

          • Kate I.

            Its already been established, Laura, you, Lauren and I are going to meet up at the airport before we disperse to the different African countries.

          • Addis Ababba has got a pretty nice airport… when do we want to set the date?

          • Tomorrow?

          • I wish…

          • hehehe.!!! Ya’ll are funny! I’m loving reading this chain of comments!!! ;’)

          • It’s faster than email to just type on here… and I think we get a little crazier over here as well.

          • Yeah, I have to apologize. When I don’t get to talk to my teen-peoples, I get a little wound up. :/

          • Kate I.

            Sounds awesome, I’m going there next summer! So any of you wanna meet up?

          • I’m almost certainly going this year as well. Either January or summer, not sure which yet. And yeah, that’d be really neat to meet up in Africa. :)

          • MimeforJesus

            Yes!! But you’ll have to be a little nearer to my place… Try Philadelphia?
            Seriously, though, I want to meet you!

          • Hey, Philadelphia works for me. :)

          • MimeforJesus

            Awesome! πŸ˜€

          • It’s only about two hours away, I think, so yeah. :) Now just to drag Kate and Taylor over here… Actually, tbh, I’m not for sure where Kate lives, and if I did I forgot. :/

          • MimeforJesus

            I’m not sure either. Somehow I got it into my head that she’s a Californian, then I heard where she actually lives and I was dead wrong.

          • Kate I.

            Shwet! Your considering going into missions in Africa, right? We’re all going to meet in the Addis Ababba Airport, so be there next summer!

          • MimeforJesus

            Yes indeed! But I can’t probably go over there until… oh, after my first year of college at least. :/ So y’all will have to come back to the Addis Ababba Airport in the summer of 2018. Sound good?

          • MimeforJesus

            Hey, Kate! Where do you live? Lauren and I are saying we should drag you and Taylor on up to Philadelphia because it’d be easier than meeting at the airport.

          • What about D.C.? If I remember correctly, when Taylor went to Malawi, he flew out from there. And that shouldn’t be too out of the question for either of us.

          • MimeforJesus

            Yeah, DC would work for me! *checks schedule* How’s November 16th for you?

          • Haha, well it’d probably work for me, the only big thing I have on my agenda in the next couple months is our family “staycation” next week, and a trip to BJU the first week of November. We’ll have to see what my mom thinks of that prospect, but I don’t see why not. πŸ˜‰ *Disqus is SOO slow tonight!!*

          • MimeforJesus

            Wow, it is! I didn’t see your comment until it was three minutes old!
            Okay, great! Now to get Kate and Taylor up here. That’ll be the hard part…

          • Threats work nicely… and blackmail.

          • MimeforJesus

            Yeah! So that’ll get Taylor, but what do we do to get Kate? I don’t know enough to blackmail either, but you could blackmail Taylor. Hmm…

          • We can brainstorm. But we gotta get ’em up here somehow!!

          • MimeforJesus

            Okay, I’ll brainstorm with you!
            What if we just invited Kate and Taylor, and see if they’ll come with a nice invitation? it’d be easier than thinking up devious ways to get them here!

          • Kate I.

            Indiana. I’m a true blood redneck/Hoosier:D haha. I wish I could come to Philadelphia, but I don’t know if my trip to Rwanda will require a stop in your airport…but I’ll definitely try:)

          • MimeforJesus

            Make Philadelphia a part of your trip! Pleeeassseeee! Otherwise I”ll have to find out when you’ll be flying over me, so I can wave to every airplane I see that day. And that’d be a little weird, so just come to Philadelphia. πŸ˜‰

          • Kate I.

            Ok! I’ll do that:) I’ll make sure to keep ya updated on this trip planning!

          • MimeforJesus

            Thanks! πŸ˜€

          • MimeforJesus

            Just a slight problem… you and Taylor are older than me and Lauren. Y’all will be ready to leave sooner!

          • Kate I.

            Can I come to Texas? I wanna meet both of you!

          • You should go to Texas anyway!! It is da best. Period. No exceptions. Except maybe Africa. But I haven’t actually gone, so yeah. I do have to say, PA sunrises/sunsets are actually way better than Texas’.

          • Africa’s are better… :) You saw the pics!

          • But there’s still a difference between seeing pics and seeing it with your own ojos. :(

          • A temporary problem. We’ll make sure you see them “with your own ojos”.

          • *starts singing* One daaaaaaaaaay….

          • Sorry, you’d just mentioned choir! “when heaven was filled with his praises…”

          • One day when sin was as black as could be….

          • You remember… :) I think I have a video of that song.

          • I still watch videos of our ensemble songs. Dylan watches them with me.

          • Wait, you have those?! Could you send them to me sometime?

          • Hello, typing person? You there?

          • I dunno if I can send videos, but I can try…

          • That’d be great… I’ll get to listen to my voice crack… ha, ha. That picture you sent of all of us in the ensemble is my computer wallpaper. :)

          • It’s not letting me send one, it’s too big. I can try another one, but I don’t think it’ll let me send.

          • Okay, it’s okay. Thanks for trying!

          • Yeah, sorry, nothing I try will work. And I’d better get off the computer anyway, the website isn’t working right anymore and that’s usually God’s way of kicking me off. πŸ˜‰

          • Alright, see ya later! It was fun to talk again! :)

          • Nothing beats an African sunsets!!!!! SERIOUSLY!

          • YES! I have a witness!

          • LOL!! But, I admit, I’ve never been to PA, so I wouldn’t know how to compare the suset to ZA where I live… =) πŸ˜‰

          • What does ZA stand for? And what are you doing there?

          • Lol! Sorry, Zambia! =) Missions work. My family moved here 7 months ago to work with a school for orphans (and widow training program) here in a city called Ndola. =)

          • Very neat! How is that working out? I am planning to spend my life in African missions as well, so I’m interested!! :)

          • Oh that’s awesome! =D I’m LOVING it here! the anticipation of moving was really REALLY hard…leaving all my friends in the states and everything….but now taht I’m here, I miss my friends, but I ADORE life here!!!!

          • Very cool! What are some of the challenges you’ve faced there as a teenager?

          • Well, I got my license just before I moved here, and I can’t get it here til I’m 18…so going from having that freedom to not having taht freedom has been really tough… =P And it’s not safe for me to walk around alone hardly anywhere because I stand out as a white, teenage girl and could be really vulnerable… =P Sooo…basically lacking freedom has been tough…I’d say taht’s been the biggest difficulty..

          • Okay, I see. And what are the biggest blessings you’ve seen there?

          • hmmm..SOO many of those.. πŸ˜‰ I’ve been able to see things from a new perspective after seeing and experiencing so much…God has really helped me to prioritize things better and see the value (or lack thereof) in things. Also, learning to deal with whatever situations I’m presented with is becoming a necessity. We live without electircity a majority of the time, and it’s not always predictable when it will go out…so we just have to often make do randomly with cooking outside or changing plans suddenly…we have to be much more flexible.. (which is not one of my strengths =P) the music and passionate worship of the Lord here is my FAVORITE thing about life here!!! <3 I also love how personal the people are! Everyone is friendly with a great sense of humor…basically, they put more importance on people than "things"…i guess taht's a few of the blessings from living here! =)

          • Interesting you named two things that stuck out to me while I was there as well. The unpredictability is a huge sticking point for an American used to a strict schedule. :) But God is in control.

            The worship was such a huge piece to me as well. It’s really cool to hear that that still sticks out to you after seven months. The worship was so much more real and felt there than it often is here.

          • YESS! IT does feel so much more real!! I feel much more “free” I guess….Free to worship in whatever way I feel led! I didn’t know you’d been to Africa!!! What part did you go to!!?!?! HOw long were you there??

          • Yep, that describes it well. Clapping, arm swaying, even dancing was normal, something that I, who have always attended a Baptist church, found refreshing.

            I spent two weeks in Malawi. I wish I could have stayed longer, but I am planning to go back again this next year. :) Loved it!

          • ohmyword! YES! exactly how I feel!!!

            Awesome! I know a few different people who have been to Malawi! I hope you get to go back! If you loved it, then taht is probably a pretty good sign God has a plan for you there in some capacity… πŸ˜‰

          • We’ll see… I have a strong interest in African missions period, but particularly northern Africa, specifically Sudan and South Sudan. But I’m open to going pretty much anywhere in Africa at this point. :)

          • Wow! That’s super cool!!!!! Sudan would be a dangerous place to be, but God is faithful and if God calls you there, then he has a plan! =) The opportunities there would be AMAZING! It;s so great to serve a God who we can trust and who takes us exactly where we need to be… =)

          • I don’t know for sure that’s where I will wind up, but I do know God has given me an interest there. And yes, He is worthy of all our trust. It’s a great truth to start to hang onto. :)

          • Haylie

            Glad i’m not the only one πŸ˜‰

          • It’s a crowded corner then, cause I’m stuffed in there too…

          • Well, they say three is a crowd… just kidding.

          • MimeforJesus

            I’m with ya! I only know a couple of his songs, but… I love the ones I do know! πŸ˜€

      • And Day by Day

        • So I suppose then that you like Andrew Peterson too? :)

          • Oh aye :) Have you ever read his novels?

          • I have not. I knew a girl who went crazy over them, but I never actually read them myself. I’ve heard they’re really good?

          • Yep. So at first they might seem a little odd but they’re actually really really good.

    • David Sampson

      Can I join your Andrew Peterson corner? :)

      • Yes! Welcome!

      • Yes, sir! Welcome to the official Andrew Peterson corner… I’m going to step out of it to make room for you. I’ll be right back with
        punch. :)

        • Does this mean we can have an AP club, like the stupidity club?

  • Louis Gervais

    I usually don’t listen to music every day, and when I do I go through phases of different kinds of Christian music. I like ‘When It’s All Been Said and Done’ by Don Moen and a lot of old hymns sung by different groups (like ‘Just As I Am’ ‘What Wondrous Love is This’ ‘Rescue the Perishing’ ‘Will the Circle Be Unbroken’ ‘Will There Be Any Stars’), and ‘In The Garden’ by George Beverly Shea =vD Also, I’ve found that Scripture which is sung proves to be very uplifting, but I don’t know where you would find that (someone gave it to me; ‘Scripture Melodies – Fear Not’).

    • Louis Gervais

      Don Franscisco also has many good Christian songs based on the life of Christ, such as ‘He’s Alive’.

  • Olivia W.

    Most of the churches I have been at do Sovereign Grace and the Gettys a lot. I like to listen to Kari Jobe and Meredith Andrews. They’re contemporary christian but they aren’t shallow like a lot of contemporary christian music that’s popular these days. Right now my favorite songs are “Soar” and Pieces” both by Meredith Andrews.

  • Lizzie D.

    Honestly, I have a wide range of music preferences. 116 Clique, Mumford and Sons, Of Monsters and Men, For King and Country, SayWeCanFly, Skillet, I Prevail, etc. Some of the above use some language and content that is not compatible with a Christian worldview, but are real talented and get very deep.

    • I just heard a Of Monsters and Men song on Pandora…kinda weird, but certainly not bad. And interesting, I kinda liked it. =P

    • Emy Evo

      Yes! SayWeCanFly is great:) *highfives you from across the internet for having good taste in music *

  • MimeforJesus

    Wowee, I missed the party!

    • I avoided the party. ;P

      • Hey! Party-pooper. πŸ˜‰

      • Nathan Moyer

        Yeah really! Party-poopers unite!

      • MimeforJesus

        Party pooper. =P

  • Kate

    Tom O’Dell is very good. Some others are Owl City, Mariah Peterson, Kerrie Robert, 33 Miles (Country), Josh Wilson, Jamie Grace &1 Girl Nation (Both for maybe younger teens),Fransesca Battistelli, Britt Nicole, Addison Road, Audrey Aussad, Royal Tailor, Jeremy Camp. I personally love all of these. They are a vey wide range of styles.

    Does anyone know of any clean music that isn’t nessecarily Christian? I’ve been trying to expand my music library.

    • Okie Gal

      Twenty-one Pilots!! They are Christians so that flows into their music even though they don’t talk about God constantly. They use uke in the place of guitar and have a really neat sound. Some of the songs talk about stuff you don’t want to hear all the time, but they have great lyrics and make me think a lot. I love their album Blurryface. You should check it out!

    • sweet cupcake

      Tori Kelly, Gardiner Sisters and Anthem Lights. All of these are Christians but they write a lot of clean songs about life and stuff. Check them out!!

    • Soundtrack! πŸ˜‰ If that’s not what you’re looking for I can recommend some other things for ya if you want. =)

    • Regan Seba

      Some of George Strait’s music, Chris de Burgh, Josh Groban, Tori Kelly, Adele if you’re picky with her music, Imagine Dragons some of their music.

    • Like Regan Seba pointed out, some of the artists mentioned have good songs and bad songs….so you just have to be choosy… =P Most artists have a few good songs!! So like he said, Adele has a few good ones (Someone like you is my fav). “Check Yes or No” and “Write this Down” are good George Strait songs…..
      Carrie Underwood has some good songs! (Something in the Water, All American Girl, Jesus Take the Wheel, Little Toy Guns)
      my other comment below lists some others.. πŸ˜‰

      • Olivia W.

        temporary home is a really good one by Carrie Underwood

        • OH yess!!!! you are right! LOVE that one!!

      • Kate

        Thanks to all of you!!!!

  • sweet cupcake

    Tori Kelly, Gardiner Sisters, Anthem Lights, Kari Jobe, Laura Story, Tenth Avenue North, Lauren Daigle. Highly Recommend all of these singers!!

    • The Gardiner Sisters! Yes, I discovered them randomly on YouTube and was really impressed by them. πŸ˜‰

      • I caught Hannah online… πŸ˜›

        • Lol

        • Can’t get away with anything, can I?! πŸ˜‰

          • Have to go eat dinner… πŸ˜‰

          • Yum! Enjoy! I am laughing at how many people love Andrew Peterson! πŸ˜‰

          • I didn’t know there were so many AP fans… Poor Courtney, when she comes to see the answers on this post, she’s going to be bombarded with Andrew Peterson fanatics.

          • Haha! I know! I was really surprised that so many people like him. I actually had thought he was more the thing maybe ten or more years ago because my older brother had a cd of his growing up.

      • Ruthie C

        Some else likes the Gardiner Sisters!! I’m not alone! :’) Seriously though, they are so talented. I mean, just go listen to their cover of Only Hope by Switchfoot… *happy sigh*

    • Ruthie C

      Hey, looks like we actually have really similar music taste! *high-fives you from across internet land*

      • sweet cupcake

        that’s awesome!!! Glad someone else loves the same artists I do!!

  • Check out “Sky Sailing.” It’s the acoustic project of Adam Young, the guy behind Owl City. I love Owl City, but sometimes it gets kind of monotonous. Sky Sailing only released one album, but it’s beautiful and heartfelt. Check it out. The album is called “An Airplane Carried Me To Bed.” I also love Hawk Nelson (the new stuff) and Rend Collective.

    Also, I realize that this sounds pretty darn nerdy, but I listen to a ton of The Piano Guys. Granted, it’s instrumental, but their stuff is incredible.

    • If listening to The Piano Guys is nerdy, I’m pretty sure many of us here are happy to be nerds!
      Also, thanks for mentioning the acoustic project, I’ll have to check that out!

      • Haylie

        *raises hand* I’m a guilty nerd.. and proud of it!

    • OMG I LOVE SKY SAILING!!! *Flips out and starts fanboying (if thats even a thing)*

      • He absolutely needs to release another Sky Sailing album. Glad to see someone else who has even heard of Sky Sailing! Also, nice name.

        • Why thank you, Im rather fond of my name :)

          And he really does, but I’m afraid he won’t. Sky Sailing was an early experiment, and now that Owl City is so popular, I think he’s moved on. But I do wish he’d go back! T_T

          • Yeah, I doubt it’ll happen, but I love his Sky Sailing stuff more than most of his Owl City stuff; Adam Young in general is my favorite artist.

          • I do too, my favorite Owl City songs are those with a guitar, such as Saltwater Room and Sunburn. His voice and an acoustic guitar just compliment each other so well! And I’m completely in love with all his music too; not including those two groups mentioned, I also love Port Blue (his instrumental side project)!

          • Dude, you know what’s up. I totally agree about the guitar songs; Sunburn and Saltwater room have always been a couple of my favorites. I’ve also always liked To The Sky, because of the guitar involvement there.

          • YES!! I love that song!! I personally play guitar, and I find his prowess with it, and incorporating it into his tunes phenomenal! Maybe I’ll get as good someday… Probably not xD

          • I also personally play guitar. You sure you’re not my doppelganger? Or maybe I’m your doppelganger! Man, that really changes things; I’m just someone else’s evil twin.

          • But wait, are you the evil one, or am I? o.O

          • #Mindblown

          • *Mad curveball comes out of nowhere*

      • Haylie

        fanboying?! *dies of laughter* That’s awesome πŸ˜‰

        • Is that a thing?? I don’t even know, but I just made it one xD

          • Haylie

            Ummm… I guess it’s a thing now! XD

          • I wonder how long it’ll take them to add it to the Merriam-Webster xD

          • Haylie

            lol ;P Is fan-girling even in the dictionary? It That even a thing? *gasp*

          • Yes it is, I just looked it up… : a girl or woman who is an extremely or overly enthusiastic fan of someone or something

            Change that first part to guy and it fits me perfectly πŸ˜›

          • Haylie

            Lol then we shall consider fan-boying an officially coined phrase πŸ˜‰ btw, welcome to the Reb! You’re pretty new around here aren’t ya? :)

          • Yes I am, I read the book a while ago, but I’m just now starting to get involved in the online community. Its very friendly lol! :)

          • Haylie

            That’s what people people say, haha πŸ˜‰ Well, we’re glad you’re here, and I hope it encourages you as much as it has encouraged me!

          • So far, I am quite encouraged, thank you for the warm welcome! :)

  • Alex

    REND COLLECTIVE!! Chris Tomlin, The Passion Band, Kristian Stanfill, Rivers and Robots (check them out!) Tobymac, Andy Mineo, Lecrae, Colton Dixon, Crowder, MercyMe…

    • Yay! Another Rend Collective lover! This makes me happy! I was concerned that this may be the place for only Andrew Peterson lovers. Hehe! :)

  • Drew Watson

    Definitely Mumford and Sons, Of Monsters and Men, Andy Mineo, Lecrae, Coldplay, Josh Garrels, Andrew Peterson, The Last Bison, Jason Gray. This is really diverse but it is some of my favorite bands and musicians.

    • Yes, Josh Garrels is awesome! Love his music. That was one I forgot to add to my list. I also like Mumford and Sons, too. πŸ˜‰

  • Laura Guzman

    Both of my parents are professional musicians, and I grew up listening to composers like Mendelssohn, Bach, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Chopin, Vivaldi, Handel, etc. When I was older (thanks to youtube) I discovered the crazy plethora that composes the modern world of music. At first, I was shocked, and as it wore away I realized that while some music (in my experience, Indie Rock) had depth and beauty, most music lacks the raw emotion beneath melodic perfection, the INSANE harmonies and chord progressions, the wordless story that told narratives which call me. While I listen to many other musicians, these, the “greats” are my favorites.

    • Yes! But what do you think of soundtrack music? I’d consider John Williams equal to some of the best classical composers in many areas. =)

  • Simon S.

    DC Talk!!! In my opinion the greatest Christian contemporary band ever.

    • Simon S.

      Also Capital Kings is awesome too!

  • Ruthie C

    Lauren Daigle, OneRepublic, Tori Kelly, Anthem Lights, Switchfoot, Gardiner Sisters, Jonathan Thulin, Coldplay, The Afters, TobyMac, 21 Pilots, I Am They… I also love some good instrumental piano (Piano Guys!), and I have a huge Spotify playlist of Christian Christmas music that is definitely enjoyed all the year round. (It’s never the wrong time of year to celebrate Jesus… riiight? :P)

    • Regan Seba

      Okay, who are these 21Pilots people I keep hearing about? Are they good?

      • Rachel S.

        yeah, they’re two guys who have a rock/alt band thing going on. everyone loves them because their songs are unique & cool & somewhat catchy but also somewhat alternative so it appeals to everyone. Plus one of the guys used to play for a Christian band, so I think at least one of them is a Christian too.

        • Okie Gal

          They’re both Christians so there lyrics are very moral even though their songs are about different things. I’m a Goner and The Judge talk about God.

      • Ruthie C

        They are a secular music duo that mix several different music styles. I was just informed that I have to go right now, but hopefully later today I can link a couple youtube videos of my favorite songs from them. :)

      • Ruthie C

        Ok, they use a wide variety of styles in their songs so it’s hard to pinpoint just a couple, but here are 2 good starter songs:
        “Migraine” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bs92ejAGLdw
        “Goner” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3J5mE-J1WLk

    Country:
    George Strait(In particular When the Credits Roll, How ‘Bout Them Cowgirls, Heartland, Check Yes or No, and I Cross My Heart), Trace Adkins(gotta be picky with his music), some Garth Brooks, and a few other songs like Riding with Private Malone, A Soldiers Memoir, and The House That Built Me.

    Pop:

    I love Adele, even though she’s not always clean, Imagine Dragons, anything by Josh Groban(in particular You Raise Me Up, which is currently in my top five favorite songs), and Tori Kelly, and OneRepublic.

    90’s Irish Rock:

    Chris De Burgh(in particular Keeper of the Keys, Don’t Pay the Ferryman, The Leader, The Vision, What About Me, Say Goodbye to it All, Fatal Hesitation)

    Irish folk:
    The Fields of Athenry
    Golden Jubilee
    Will Ye Go Lassie, Go?

    Soundtrack:
    The Music Man
    The Phantom of the Opera
    Fiddler on the Roof(That’s a great one- it has a lot of depth as well as great music. Watch the movie)
    Wicked
    The Prince of Egypt
    The Sound of Music

    Christian:
    Anything by Casting Crowns, Steven Curtis Chapman, Point of Grace, Christ Tomlin, or Sidewalk Prophets. I also like For King and Country, and I really like Hawk Nelson’s song Drops in the Ocean.

    Classical: Schumann’s Concertpiece for Four Horns and Orchestra, Op. 86, any variations on Carmen, Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2 In C Minor, and Sarah Chang and Sandra River’s album Debut.

    To fall asleep to:
    Kenny Loggins album Return To Pooh Corner. I have great memories of this album… It gives me nostalgic feelings whenever I listen to it.
    Okay, now that I’ve overwhelmed you and I’ve got Drops in the Ocean running through my head I’ll sign off. I could do more, but I don’t think I can remember it all, and I kind of want to read everyone else’s comments. Hope you find some good music out of all our comments. πŸ˜€

    • Guest

      I love Adele too, Imagine Dragon’s has a slightly strange video, but its a really cool song.
      I love the song “Wave After Wave.” Mr. Probz is the artist I don’t know any other songs by him.

    • George Straight: YES! Adele: YES! Wicked soundtrack: YES!…okay, basically YESSS to EVERYTHING you just said! LOL!

    • WICKED!!!!!!!!!! How could I forget Wicked?!?!?!!!

      • It just doesn’t sound like you. :)

        • What do you mean?

          • It’s just hard picturing you really liking a band called “Wicked”. :) I know it’s not bad, just the mental image is hard to get around!

          • Well just to be clear, “Wicked” is a musical, not a band. So listening to “Wicked” music is just a Broadway track. :)

          • Ah, I knew this not. Thank you for clarifying… cause I’m gonna look it up. :)

          • haha, well when you do, don’t judge me.

          • Hey, you got to look through all my playlists. :) I got no room to judge! Besides, I already admitted to listening to Willie Nelson, so… what can I say?

    • Nathan Moyer

      WOW! That quite the list and variety!

      • Regan Seba

        Thank you. My mom sometimes can’t listen to my favorites playlist because I switch genres from song to song- I’ll go from country to soundtrack to rock to pop, etc.

        • MimeforJesus

          My list drives my sister crazy, too! Lovers of multiple genres unite!!

    • Horowitz was amazing….

    • George Strait! Been a while since I’ve listened to “Amarillo by Morning”… thanks for the idea! :)

  • Daniel Sanchez

    I love worship music. New Life Worship, Hillsong, Bethel Music and Worship Mob. There is a new song by Jordan Feliz called the River. It is pretty catchy! I also like Lecrae and Andy Mineo, Rhend Collective, Tenth Avenue North, The Piano Guys, Lindsey Stirling, etc.

  • One of my favourite musicians is Steven Curtis Chapman. His songs have catchy tunes and great words, sometimes based specifically on a verse of Scripture. Also, a lot of old hymns have beautiful words and sometimes singable tunes.
    Some of his might be a bit young, but do look up Colin Buchanan. He has some great songs, lots of memory verses and often a sense of humour!!!

  • Oh I just remembered!! Courtney, if you enjoy piano solos, Jim Brickman is AMAZING! I LOVE his music..!!! I can play a few of his songs and I really FEEL them…..They are nice songs to relax to… =)

    • Haylie

      YESSSSSSS!

    • Olivia W.

      You can play jim brickman? That’s awesome : ) I play piano, and I know some of his music is pretty hard

      • I can play “Angel Eyes” and “Rocket to the Moon”. Tbh, those two at least, aren’t that hard…They sound a LOT more complex than they are!!!! But for me, his music just TOUCHES my heart when I play….Like, other composers like Mozart of Bach or Pachelbel or someone like that; I can maybe play a piece or two, but it’s not as passionate or “musical” but more “technical” if taht makes sense….So Jim Brickman is kind of “my pianist” so to speak! lol!!! But I’m not that good at most composers’ music though… =P

  • I’ll cast my votes for Andrew Peterson and Laura Story (Christian) and Josh Turner (country)… but I enjoy lots of other artists as well :)

    • Kayleigh Zubrod

      Andrew Peterson FTW!!!

    • Regan Seba

      Josh Turner… Is he good? I’m always looking for decent country music because it’s so difficult to find.

      • Yes. He also doesn’t hide his faith. I love good country for its joy in the everyday gifts of God which are quite remarkable … he appreciates them well.

  • Well, I’m an aspiring music artist myself, so music is my life πŸ˜› My list is SOOOO long, so I’ll just keep it to the highlights.

    CCM: I’m honestly not a fan of this genre too much, mainly because of overused tunes and lyrics, but I do enjoy Rend Collective, Phil Wickham and tobyMac :)

    EDM: This is probably my favorite genre, and this may be a long list lol. Hillsong Young and Free, Capital Kings, David Thulin, Executive Decision, and Unikron all make good Christian dance music. Instrumental EDM favs would be Ramses B., Blackmill, Aven, and Drakonic. Hope thats at least gives you a place to start!

    Rap/HipHop: I know, this genre is kinda frowned upon, but there is some great Christian rap out there! Lecrae, Andy Mineo, Trip Lee, KB, Canon, and Tedashii all make some great Christian bangers! Also, for the more reflective side of hiphop, NF and Beautiful Eulogy are great choices!

    Pop: Theres really only one guy I need to mention here. Owl City. My favorite artist ever. End of story. πŸ˜› Oh wait, there is an artist I found on Soundcloud who deserves some of your attention. Her name is Orange! and heres a link, I don’t think you’d find her on your own. https://soundcloud.com/orangeabbymusic

    Anyway, I hope this list helped! :)

  • Danny

    Colton Dixon, Relient K (collapsible lung album), Owl City, Canon, Shai Linnae (sp?), Lecrae, Thousand Foot Krutch, Stellar Kart, The Afters…. the list goes on for a while. πŸ˜€

  • AnnaGrace

    I hardly ever listen to music unless I happen to be in the vicinity when a family member is playing it, but when I do…a lot of classical (Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Beethoven, etc.) and some Christian contemporary. No particular favorite artists…usually I have favorite songs…but when my family pops in a CD it is usually Damaris Carbaugh, Cheri Keaggy, Ginger Millermon, Laura Story, or Chris Tomlin’s Love Ran Red album. I love Steven Curtis Chapman’s lyrics, but I have never listened to his music because we don’t have any of it and I haven’t gone looking for it. Occasionally Steve Green, Twila Paris, or Evie. Recently added Hartley Family Bluegrass…not sure their style is my favorite but I really like some of their lyrics, particularly “Jesus Is Enough”. You can find them at hartleyfamilybluegrass.blogspot.com and listen to some of it at https://www.reverbnation.com/hartleyfamily
    Songs: Love Ran Red, Cornerstone, Keep Making Me, Jesus is Enough, Blessings etc. It’s so hard to think of them when you try to list them! ~Anna Grace

  • Ooh, you asked a question about music! It’s kinda hard for me to ignore questions about music. (I also cant ignore questions about roller coasters, Marvel, and Once Upon A Time.)
    I listen to Lecrae, Andy Mineo, Trip Lee, Skillet, Thousand Foot Krutch, Family Force 5, Twenty One Pilots (they’re LEGIT), Rend Collective (I’ve met them a couple of times and know them pretty well), and We As Human. Secular artists would include Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes, Imagine Dragons, Fall Out Boy, and some Taylor Swift. I listen to a decent amount of secular music but I don’t have a lot of specific artists that I enjoy. Some of them just have certain songs that I enjoy.
    So yeah, judging by the 280 comments, you have a lot of music to look up. XD

    • Okie Gal

      I love the MCU! Do you watch SHIELD?

      • Okie Gal

        Also, you picked some pretty legit music. Andy Mineo’s uncomfortable is my fav right now.

      • Sadly, I don’t. My parents wont let me yet. Someday I’ll get to watch it though. :)

        • Okie Gal

          That makes sense, there’s actually several parts I would’ve skipped if I’d known. It’s really good though. What’s your favorite part of Marvel?

          • Hmm.. do you mean my favorite hero or my favorite movie or?

          • Okie Gal

            Uh, idk. Movie I guess, i love Captain America.

          • Captain America is my favorite. (He’s from Brooklyn NY, the city that was named after me. XD XD ) My favorite marvel movie is Winter Soldier.

    • Oh yes, Taylor Swift, we know. That goes without saying. ;P @Carson…ack, I can’t tag Carson! Oh wait, that’s probably a good thing, don’t want to get spammed on here AND on Revive lol.

      • Haha, I wondered if any Revivers would pick up on that. πŸ˜‰ Yes, good thing you cant tag Carson. We’d spam this place with Tay Sway lyrics.

        • Ruthie C

          Ooh, next time you do decide to Tay Sway spam people count me in! πŸ˜€

          • I shall! The more Tay Sway spammers, the better! XD

        • ‘Zactly. =P

    • Haylie

      My friend, *just* showed me a Twenty one pilots song last night! It was pretty good :)

    • Ruthie C

      You’ve met Rend Collective? Dude!

      • Yes, I’ve sat and had conversation with them a couple times! They’re super sweet and REALLLLLLY funny!

        • Haylie

          Luckyyyyyyyy! πŸ˜‰

        • Ruthie C

          I love people who are like that! That’s so awesome πŸ˜€

    • Okay, I can resist asking you questions about roller coasters, but–but the other two… XD must…not…

  • Audrey French

    I listen to Klove a lot! It is a really good Christian radio station. I like too many Christian artists to list. :-) Chris Tomlin, Matthew West, Steven Curtis Chapman, the Afters, Capitol Kings, Mandisa, Toby Mac, MercyMe, Fee, Planetshakers, Newsboys, Passion, Matt Maher, Sidewalk Prophets, We are Young and Free, Chris Rice, Casting Crowns, Linclon Brewster, Jeremy Camp, Kristian Stanfill, Josh Wilson, Capitol Kings, Rend Collective ect,.
    This is a really random music artist, but has anyone ever heard of Carmen? :-) He’s old time Christian music.

    • Oh yeah, I forgot Lincoln Brewster! I love the stuff I’ve heard of his. We use to sing some of his songs at the church I went to when I was little. :)

      • Spitfire

        Wow, that takes me back! I haven’t heard anything from Lincoln Brewster in a long time! I remember there was a song by him that I really liked back in the day. I’ll have to see if I can find it. :)

    • Awesome list! Did you mean Hillsong Young & Free or are you talking about a different artist?

      • Audrey French

        Hillsong Young and Free. :-)

        • Yay!! They’re so amazing!! πŸ˜€ I get so excited when Wake comes on the radio, lol.

          • Audrey French

            Me too! I also like This is living now, Alive, and Brighter (which are all their songs).

          • Haha!! Just all of them, right? XD Sinking Deep is really good too. They need to come out with more!

  • Hannah Croswell

    Steven Curtis Chapman, Micheal Card, and Steve Bell

  • Clare

    Hi Courtney!

    Some music that I just LOVE is Feel It, Speak Life, and This is Not a Test by TobyMac. They’re upbeat and fun. And also look up Hillsong United!

    Hope it helps a bit!

    Sincerely,
    Clare

    • Clare

      Also look up MercyMe: Flawless

      Really great song. And if you know of Daughtry. Really good too. I think of em as I go!

  • Emily

    I listen to a lot of different artists, but some I’ve been really getting into are: I am They, Jamie Grace (Particularly To Love You Back), Francesca Battistelli (Particularly Write Your Story, He knows my name), Dan Bremnes, Jon Guerra, and Unspoken (Particularly Start a Fire, Good Fight, and Tomorrow)

    • AnnaGrace

      This sounded so much like my sister Emily I actually clicked on your name and looked to see if it was…most of your comments and the person you followed made me think you were but then I saw one comment that she wouldn’t have written…:)

      • Emily

        Aww that’s sweet! I don’t comment on the rebelution much, but that’s interesting that my comments made me sound like your sis! It’s amazing how many Emily’s there are!!

  • Michaela

    My favorite musicians are these guys whose music I feel in love with like 2 years ago. Their not famous at all (I’ve never heard them on k-love) but they are really the best, so far.
    If you can’t look up whole cds try these songs:
    Citizens(and saints)-Made Alive, You Have Searched Me, Before the Throne, O God.

    Dustin Kensrue-Grace Alone, It’s not Enough, My One Comfort, This is war (when he was a with a group called Modern Post)

    Ghost Ship-Lion Man of Judah, Hesed, the Revelation of Jesus Christ, Where Were You.

    Kings Kaleidoscope-Felix Culpa, Defender, One Righteous Man, Seek Your Kingdom.

    Please look them up and tell me what you think. They are really great!:)

  • Liam

    I don’t even know how to describe my taste in music, it varies.

    So here we go:
    Bethel Music (Great worship)
    Matt Maher
    Gungor (Sometimes abstract, if you want to listen to them, listen to their new stuff FIRST)
    Kristian Stanfill
    (Some) Sanctus Real
    Hillsong United (Great worship)
    (Some Crowder)

    So ya.

    • Bethel is outstanding! And I used to really like Gungor, they’re a very unique group. :)

      • Liam

        Bethel is great, I just found them recently. Yea, Gungor is unique, though their newer albums are harder to understand, haha.

        • Same here! I first heard Brave and It Is Well, and I fell in love. :) Personally, I heard some bad things about what the people in Gungor believe about the Bible. Usually I try to just enjoy music for its worth rather than based on what the artists believe, but I’ve struggled to listen to them since then for some reason. They still have cool music though. :)

          • Liam

            Well I did do a little research on that, and they tend to be a little out there. But I just take their music for what it is.

          • That’s cool. I may have to listen to some of their newer songs now. :)

    • Hey, you like Gungor? Cool! I didn’t know anyone else who liked Gungor!

      • Liam

        Yeah, I think most of their music is pretty unique!

  • Jolie Simmonds

    116 clique, NF, Mary Mary, Tobymac, DC Talk, Skillet, We Came as Romans, Blanca, Veridia, Britt Nicole, Colton Dixon, Barlow Girl, Unspoken, Owl City, FF5, Pentatonix, Imagine Dragons, One Republic Tenth Avenue North, Building 429, and Newsboys!

    • ok, are you me? those are some of my favorites!

    • I approve of your list. XD

  • Okie Gal

    Yay! I needed some good music too. Thanks y’all!

  • Regan Seba

    Has Brett commented and I missed it? I’m actually rather curious as to what music he listens to.

    • I don’t think he has….! But yeah, I’m curious too!!

  • Joseph Shaker

    Lots of Jazz
    ie Snarky puppy, Monk, Brad Meldau
    Some Rock like Yes! Pink Flyod, Stone Temple Pilots, Them Crooked Vultures
    For hip hop and such I enjoy listening to Chic and Common (he raps about real stuff, listen to neighborhood)
    I think that modern Christian music suffers from mediocrity. Artists of our world mostly write to build their own kingdoms, for money. We have a greater message to tell but the music we write and label as Christian is often very boring musically. Doesn’t God deserve better? If their was no special meaning in the lyrics, I would not listen to 99% of modern Christian music. David was a song writer.
    I digress.

    Edit: Thats not to say I dont listen to Christian music. I do, and I connect to God through it. But I am upset at how mediocre and unassertive Christian artists are. We should use the talents he gave us to glorify him by developing them, not by playing the same 4 chords and recycling a Jesus culture or Hillsong riff they took from U2 recycled a hundred times ad naseum

    • THANK YOU!!! “If their was no special meaning in the lyrics, I would not listen to 99% of modern Christian music.” is me too. One friend of mine described a certain Christian song as suffering from “four chord syndrome”, most of them do haha. But have you ever heard of the Gettys? Their music doesn’t suffer from that syndrome lol. =)

    • Spitfire

      I totally agree with the lack of effort put into Christian music by the artists. I’m always disappointed that I find secular songs more fun than Christian songs because the melodies and harmonies are usually richer. I would love for some Christian songs that sound like the secular covers I listen to that are done by great artists like Kurt H. Schneider and Sam Tsui! Even with my favorite band, Anthem Lights, which is a Christian band that does secular covers, I find that their covers are more beautifully harmonized and unique than their original Christian songs. I just keep wondering, “Why can’t anyone just make Christian songs that sound like those covers? How can that be so hard?”

      • Joseph Shaker

        Consider though that Bach(!!) wrote music for churches. Most of his well famous celebrated work was hymns. The are complex and beautiful, but they are moving too. We were are the forefront. I think it is as much of an issue with the song wiriters as it is with the market. It sells!

        Our worship pastor owns a recording studio and I was interning there and we are working on trying to write and release some more good Christian songs that have musical motion while having lyrics that are biblical truth its cool.
        You can look up “God of Mercy” Rockville Centre Vineyard and tell me what you think

  • I listen to mostly worship music, I love it and I feel really joyful when I listen to it. Here is a list of my favourite worship tunes:

    – O Church Arise, Stuart Townend (I love this one!!!!!! lol (spotify:track:6VIjStFcmC72ZYPC8nmuzw))
    – In Christ Alone, Stuart Townend
    -My Lighthouse, Rend Collective (live: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reAlJKv7ptU)
    – Happy Day, Tim Hughes
    – More Than Conquerors, Rend Collective
    – These Are The Days of Elijah, Robin Mark
    – It is Well with My Soul, Stuart Townend (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2Soe-uIE9g)
    – Consuming Fire, Tim Hughes
    – Here I Am to Worship, Tim Hughes
    I am actually playing the last one in church this Sunday (first time ever!!), along with four other songs, on the piano. I’m feeling quite nervous about it, so please pray for me if you can!
    Hope this helps.
    :DDD

    • Sending prayers your way!! The first few times are pretty scary but I’m sure you’ll do great. :)

      • Thanks, that’s really encouraging!! :))))))))

        • You’re very welcome, let me know how it goes!

          • It went good, we played:

            In Christ Alone
            Before the Throne of God Above
            Be Still for the Presence of the Lord
            The Lord’s My Shepherd (Stuart Townend version)
            Light of the World

            After the first two songs there was a prayer, and we were shaking like leaves but after the third song it was ok!! It was myself on the piano and the pastors daughter doing the violin, so it sounded awesome. It was really embarrassing at the beginning, but I think we kind of realised that people were there to worship rather than watch us the entire time, so it was easier after that.

            Thanks sooo much for ur prayers everyone and I think it went really well :)

          • Awesome!! Haha, I know what you mean by shaking. XD It’s this awful situation of being nervous you won’t do well, and then not doing well because you’re shaking because you’re nervous! Lol. But I’m really glad to hear it went well. :) Piano and violin, that must have been gorgeous!
            And you’re absolutely right. Once you realize that most people are focusing on the Lord and not you, it becomes much easier. :)

          • IKR!!! It’s so embarrassing when you get really shaky and can’t stop, but once the service was finished one of the ladies gave us a big hug and said we did really well :))))))

          • Aww, there are a few ladies like that at my church too, they’re so sweet and encouraging!
            And that’s a great goal! I’d love to learn it someday when I have the time. :) And I’m not crazy about the message either, but I’d still love to be able to sing it. The song reaches just a little above and below my vocal range, so it’s a sort of goal for me to be able to sing it without sounding awful, lol. XD

          • Lol

          • Also you’re right, the piano/violin together were amazing!! One of my goals on the piano for when I grow up is learning the original advanced ‘Let It Go’. I’m not particularly keen on the words, but I LOVE the tune!!! xD

    • MimeforJesus

      I’ll be praying for you!

      • Aww thanks u guys r great @kittenese @mimeforjesus

        • I got tagged! *insert an extremely happy emoticon*

        • MimeforJesus

          I saw where you told Christy about it. :) I’m glad it went well!

          • Stalker!! XD

          • Haha

          • MimeforJesus

            Yep. Got a problem with it? Keep in mind that I’ve done the same with a certain continued convo between you and Lauren…
            How’s it going between you guys, anway?

          • Lol, I wouldn’t forget. πŸ˜‰
            Eh…not well. We haven’t really talked, and I’m pretty sure that he’s moved on, from the possibility of a future relationship and from our friendship. I mean, it’s not like he isn’t friendly, but it’s pretty clear that whatever we had is over. I’ve really been struggling with anger and depression lately, which is kind of pathetic because it’s been over for longer than we were really friends.
            All that being said…I know I made the right decision, and despite all of this I wouldn’t change it if I could. And frankly…I know he hasn’t intentionally tried to hurt me, but I think that the ways he’s acted these past few months tells me more about who he is than the few months of our friendship did.
            I’m sorry, I think all of that came out more bitterly than I meant it to. It’s just that my best friend has basically left me, and I feel so lost…
            Thank you so, so much for asking. I’ve been needing to talk about it.

          • MimeforJesus

            Is there anything you’d like to add to that, not that it’s been a few days?
            I’m really sorry. :(

          • It’s okay, thanks again for asking! I’m feeling better now but I have my ups and downs, you know? I’ll be okay and then I’ll get upset over some little thing… Next thing I know, I start reliving everything. Well, I’m afraid you caught me on one of those days. Most of the time, thankfully, I’m not that upset. Just kind of…vaguely sad. But I know that God is at work in all of this, I just have to keep trusting Him!

            So, how have you been?

          • MimeforJesus

            Haven’t answered until now! Ahhh! I’m so crazy busy… like you can tell. Umm… I’m doing pretty well. :) I’ve recently started talking more to a couple of people I know, and I think I could become really good friends with both of them! I haven’t had good friends in so long…

          • Hey, it’s okay! I’ve been really busy too. πŸ˜› That’s so awesome!! Good friends are hard to come by.

          • Thanks, I really appreciate u prayin fr me πŸ˜€

          • MimeforJesus

            You’re welcome! :)

  • celtic! its my favorite! Look up the High Kings, Celtic Women, and The Young Dubliners. Some of my favorites.

    I also like the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, contemporary instrumental, and country!

    • Nice! I can’t claim to listen to it a lot but Celtic music is fantastic!

    • Spitfire

      Yes! Celtic songs are awesome! I like Celtic Spirit; they’re a good band. And have you heard “The Samurai Set” by Gaelic Storm? It’s super upbeat and motivating and would be a great workout song!

      • I love Gaelic Storm! Don’t know if I’ve heard that particular one though.

  • A lot of y’all have mentioned artists that I absolutely love, but there’s one Christian artist I haven’t seen listed yet–Jonathan Thulin. His music is incredible and unique, and I find his lyrics to have a lot more depth and complexity than some other Christian artists.
    I know a few of you have mentioned not listening to CCM because it all sounds the same, but this guy is one of the exceptions. Upon listening to one of his songs (Bombs Away), my dad (who dislikes most Christian music) said that musically he never would have guessed it was Christian.
    Some of my favorite songs include Bombs Away (intense music video!), Masquerade, Compass, and Coat of Arms. He also does a lot of collaborations with other artists (Rachael Lampa, Moriah Peters, Royal Tailor, etc.).
    So yes, I just spent several paragraphs talking about one artist, lol, I just like his music that much!

    • Another great group I haven’t seen mentioned yet is Press Play. And Superchick! And…

      Ugh, I promised myself I wouldn’t get sucked into this. XD

    My favorite band of all time is Anthem Lights, and they do both Christian songs and secular covers. I also love Boyce Avenue, who is not a Christian band but their music is clean, and the Piano Guys, who do mostly really awesome classical music on piano and cello. Pentatonix is also really cool (they’re acapella), and there’s the Madison Letter and the George Twins, who are both less-known. I also like songs by Kurt H. Schneider, Sam Tsui, Alex Goot, Max Schneider, Peter Hollens, and Jess Moskaluke, but I always “screen” the song (listen to it and check to make sure it’s clean) before getting it because they’re secular artists, and mostly I just listen to their covers. I really like 1 Girl Nation, Capital Kings, Casting Crowns, dc Talk, Group 1 Crew, Josh Wilson, Mandisa, Mark Schultz, Newsboys, N’SYNC, Owl City, Royal Tailor, Skillet, and Tobymac. August Rain, Satellites and Sirens, and Manic Drive are good too. I also enjoy Christian remixes of secular songs because they humor me, my favorite being “Best Book Ever.” If you like Celtic music, Celtic Spirit is a good band, and there’s the song “The Samurai Set” by Gaelic Storm that is super upbeat and motivating.

    Most of my songs are by a wide variety of artists, because I listen to them and “screen” them before getting them, both because I want to make sure they’re clean and because I’m a bit picky when it comes to songs. I listen to lots of genres, but the song has to have unpredictable changes in the melody or make me feel something in order for me to get it. I also find that covers are often better than the original, so I have a lot of cover artists haha. :)

    • Anthem Lights!! The Piano Guys!! Pentatonix!! πŸ˜€

        • Nooooo what have you done?! *starts Piano Guys binge* XD

          Funny you should choose that song though, since Anthem Lights and Pentatonix both did covers of it as well, lol. Also…is this deja vu or what?! πŸ˜‰

          • Sorry i feel really silly… what is deja vu again? ive completely forgotten lol

          • Lol okay, so if this is irony that was brilliant, my friend, brilliant. XD

            In the event that it wasn’t meant to be ironic (in which case it may be even more brilliant, lol!), deja vu is when you have an experience that you feel like you’ve had before. In this case, I’m pretty sure you replied to a comment about the Piano Guys the exact same way before, haha. πŸ˜‰

            And in the event that I’m totally using the word irony wrong, I have done it before… XD

          • Right I geddit now!! Lol

          • Awesome. πŸ˜‰

        • Haylie

          *perks up* Who said piano guys??? πŸ˜€

          • Haha, yes! @wisdomseekingscot:disqus posted the same video somewhere else…was it the April Fool’s Day post? Scroll down a bit, I was just talking about deja vu lol. XD

          • Haylie

            Oh yeah! That’s it… deja vu πŸ˜‰

          • Hehe I love that word. XD So how’ve you been, Haylie?

          • Haylie

            I’m okay! I went on a spur of the moment weekend trip with some friends who are all last minute planners, so that was fun, lol! How have you been?

          • Haha, awesome! It can be really fun to have spontaneous friends. What did you do? :) I’m pretty good! My mom and I are in Hong Kong at the moment, visiting family and friends and basically just enjoying ourselves lol. It is a bit stressful at times but it’s still been a good trip. :)

          • Haylie

            Hong Kong? Cooly! I was at a youth event for high-school students at a regional Bible college. Glad to hear you’re doing well. Have a wonderful night! Enjoy your trip πŸ˜‰

          • Oh, fun! Haha, thanks! And it’s actually morning here. XD (Confusing, right? I’m living in the future!! Lol).

          • Where I live it is currently just after eight in the morning. That being said, I am not where I live. XD I’m spending a few weeks in Hong Kong, so it’s nine at night at the moment. πŸ˜‰ Which basically means lately I’m online when most everyone else is asleep, lol. Except you, sometimes!

          • Wow, Hong Kong!!! *envy* lol

          • Haha, it’s great but I am starting to get a bit home sick. :)

          • Haylie

  • thatcher jane

    I listen to a lot of pop etc, but I have been finding out that that isn’t the best music to listen to
    Have you listened to Andrew peterson

  • CAN SOMEONE HELP ME? Do any of you know of GOOD COUNTRY music?!? I mean, wholesome lyrics that aren’t only, like, praise songs, but some down-to-earth great modern country songs by artists who aren’t kinda…ummm…trashy? I’ve go two younger brothers who love country music, but the stuff they try to listen is usually main-stream radio. Mom tried to put a stop to it, but they are still constantly wanting to sing their songs and stuff, because country music has a great beat and they’re awesome with their singing. I just wish I had some music to show them that was both fun, and not unpleasing to God.
    ANY IDEAS?
    Looking for MODERN country, not the old kind;) They don’t love the old stuff much.

    So, in short: Looking for cool songs that might have trucks and backwoods, but not the beer and girls;) lol

    Thanks in advance!!

    • Okie Gal

      I can’t think of a country group that’s completely clean, but there are lot of good songs by Brad paisley, and the band perry. “House that built me”, “riding with private malone”, “I drive your truck,” and “how dare you”(that might not be the title but it’s by Miranda lambart and Blake Shelton) are also pretty good.

    • Anne

      I haven’t heard all of Lee Brice’s sings, but the ones I have are meaningful and clean.
      High Valley is a great Canadian band, and, so far, I haven’t heard a song from them that isn’t clean. Plus, they’re Christian. They do have a unique style though.
      Paul Brandt’s (another Canadian) songs are mostly clean.
      Let me know how you like them

  • Joseph M

    I’ve gone through a whole spectrum of music, so I hope that you’ll like some of these.
    For a while, I like Jonathan Thulin. His music is a bit more heavy in the sense that there are many layers to his songs. Certain songs can also get depressing…
    Then, I liked Josh Wilson. He’s still one of my favorites. His music always felt bright and cheerful to me. Currently, I’ve started to like Owl City.

  • Hana

    Soooo classical music…. Bach, Handel, Vivaldi. I love them. And not so famous composers. And film scores! I love listening to intense film scores while doing homework. And musicals. The Wicked soundtrack is memorized. But I’m weird in the way that I love Andy Mineo. He does rap and for King & Country featured him in Run Wild. He is fantastic live! But ya I have an odd selection.

    • Okie Gal

      Andy’s Uncomfortable is legit!

    • Sam G (lost and found)

      Bach, Handel, Vivaldi? Yes!! High-five! :)

      • Gabrielle

        High-five’s all around!!! :) @Hana

    • Gabrielle

      Classical is AWESOME!!

      • Sam G (lost and found)

        Indeed so…

  • I really enjoy country music (especially growing up in outback montana) but struggle with finding godly country music. I have found a few that are really good, that I totally recommend! :)
    Live like you were dying by tim mcgraw
    chicken fried by zac brown band
    god gave me you by blake shelton
    granddaddy’s gun by blake shelton
    like Jesus does by eric church
    john deer, john 3:16 by keith urban
    and probably a few more that I can’t remember :)

  • Julia Wellham

    The soundtrack to the TV series Flashpoint is amazing. Not Christian but it has some great lyrics. I also like the album Over Land and Sea by Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk, the album Noble Women. Hugh Dillon is one of my favorite artists. Mumford and Sons has some good songs too but not all of their songs are clean. Their album Sigh No More is really good. Not a Christian band but their lyrics have Christian ideology.

  • Sabine Castro

    Out of curiosity has any one else heard these guys? As of now I haven’t met any one that has.

  • Josh Thomas

    I feel you! It’s so hard to find clean songs I generally stay in the Christian side of music listening to music my manafest (yes mana not mani) Red TFK pillar , specific songs would be you can’t bring me down breathe into me rawkfist and edge of my life

  • Sam G

    What kind of what? Sorry, I can’t hear you over this rock music… (Just kidding – I don’t really listen to rock music at all.)

  • My kind of music? Firstly Worship Central. I.E You are the way, This is living now, Let it be known etc. Also don’t mind a bit of Newsboys. To be honest though anything played at Soul Survivor suits me!

  • Jesse Serengeti

    I just listen to traditional instrumental Irish music. And my brother has Imagine Dragons.
