Just for fun…I think I have found another band I like. Coldplay meets Collective Soul.
Haunting melodies, crisp vocals and nice layers in the music make this a song I like hearing over and over again. The lyrics reminisce a feeling of being stuck and getting ready to make a change.
Following up on some commentary taking place on another post, I wrote an op-ed which was posted this morning on Crosswalk.com.
Anytime I get to refer to John Cougar Mellencamp’s Small Town in an op-ed, it is a good time.
Small Town Video
Been too long between music vids. Here is one that was popular a few years ago but remains one of my top ten Switchfoot songs.
Interrupting all the seriousness is this amazing vocal performance by Marc Broussard. I hope someday my kids remember the times “Papa started hummin’ the funk.”
In Nashville and spent the afternoon and much of the evening getting ready for the Pre-conference workshop on Sexual Identity Therapy tomorrow morning. Musicians and microphones are everywhere here — even the airport — which in my mind is a good thing.
I was initially scheduled to be on the Mike and Juliet Morning Show thursday morning but was replaced by ex-gay therapist Jayson Graves. Although I think Jayson is a thoughtful guy, I was deemed a bit too measured for the event. And besides, he is younger and has more hair. I think that was the real reason. I was somewhat disappointed though because I wanted to tell my Juliet Huddy story. So y’all get to read it. Quite awhile back, I was interviewing a young man who was in distress over his homosexual attractions. In the interview, as is customary, I did a full assessment of sexuality and in so doing asked if he had any opposite sex attractions. He thought for a bit and said, he generally didn’t but there was one woman on TV he was attracted to “in that way.” When I asked who it was, he said, Juliet Huddy. I wonder if she would have blushed?
In honor of my surroundings, here is a bunch of country music talent all in one place…
I love haunting melodies and variation in dynamics in songs and this one stands out. It actually comes out being hopeful at the end – “You came along and you cut me loose…”
I posted this video back in February but today seems like a good day to reprise it.
Happy Father’s Day!
Switchfoot’s newest. Features a great song and some very trippy animation.
