I love to see stories to the songs I listen to. They shape some of the best stories in my head.
Jon Bellion- Guillotine
Firstly discovering the sounds of Jon Bellion was my musical highlight for 2016. He is a musical genius with great arrangements and voice. Guillotine is my best song on the The Human Condition album. It is a story of trust and acceptance by another even with the baggage acquired in the journey of life.
Jon Bellion – Hand of God
Yes i am a fan! Yes he is really that good. Hand of God tells stories of the struggle of life, trust in the Hand of God for overcoming them all. We are so easily caught up our way, i can always just relate to the story in this song.
Tye Tribett – You are Good
This is my go to song. It reminds me that my lows are not my destination, just checkpoints on my journey. This song allows me appreciate the oscillating nature of life and the constant nature of my God
My last two songs go together as they are of the same genre.
Nat King Cole – Unforgettable
Tony Bennett – Fly Me To The Moon
These songs birthed me into the world of Jazz. The true musical love genre for me. From the classic Tom and Jerry cartoons with jazz elements, they stuck to my subconscious and when i first heard these two songs, i was driven to search more of the world of jazz and swing of the 50’s and 60’s. A Romantics Heaven, from Nat King Cole to Tony Bennett to Frank Sinatra to Ella Fitzgerald. It’s a beautiful world.
