Derek Webb: Your Heart Breaks in All the Right Places

Derek Webb is a really nice fellow who is super talented. I once sat in a worship leaders meeting where he was speaking and immediately liked him. This is a beautiful song from his 2013 album.

Cause your heart breaks, your heart breaks in all the right places.
Your heart breaks, your heart breaks in all the right places.

Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young – Carry On

Seemed appropriate.  The harmonies on this track take me somewhere else while I sit still and know.

“Rejoice, rejoice, we have no choice but to carry on.”
“To sing the blues you’ve got to live the dues and carry on.”
“Love is coming. Love is coming to us all.”
More than we know.
 
 

Collective Soul – Shine

One of Collective Soul’s best songs. Huge sound with mysterious lyrics most can relate to.

Give me a word
Give me a sign
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find
Lay me on the ground
Fly me in the sky
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find
Oh, heaven let your light shine down
 

Down Around My Place – John Hiatt and Joe Bonamassa

This is a wonderful pairing; a bluesy mysterious song from Hiatt with Bonamassa’s impeccable leads. Enjoy:

And I put my faith in you
Did you make that error too?
Bound to fail that he might show his grace
Down around my place.

And then there’s this:

And my grandpa says, “Don’t worry
It’s always the last one in who’s in a hurry
To try and slam the door in the next one’s face”

 

Girls Just Want to Have Fun – Chase Holfelder

This is absolutely riveting. Just blown away by how changing the song from major to minor presents another possible interpretation.

Presented in this way, this Cyndi Lauper classic becomes a song of empowerment.
