[I had to temporarily take down the last post because of frustrating Blogger formatting issues that were about to steal my sanity. I hope to repost it later as I have time to deal with it. On to a less frustrating subject… :)]
I was thinking the other day what a powerful effect music has on me. Some of the moments that I’ve felt closest to God and most certain of his existence have been when I’m listening to music.
I was thinking about this as I was listening to my iPod the other day, and I realized that most of the songs I have on there have to go. I acquired most of them between 2000 and 2004, and they remind me strongly of times past. In particular, when I hear some of the ones I used to listen to when I felt depressed I’m painfully reminded of what it feels like to live life “knowing” that there is no God, that life is ultimately meaningless.
So, I’d like to put a whole bunch of new songs on my iPod, and I ask you, wonderful readers: what artists and/or songs most inspire you? What music make you feel close to God? I want everything from Gregorian chant to classical to rap to country. Whatever. I admit I am not a fan of Christian pop/rock but if you say it’s great I’ll probably check it out.
I’m hoping to get specific song suggestions when possible (rather than just good genres) so that I can just look it up on iTunes and download away.
