MUSICAL MONDAYS

Musical Mondays is about our favorite music. What’s your favorite song? If you’re a writer, does it inspire your creativity? Cure writer’s block? If you’re not a writer, what do your favorite songs do for you?

I found this song after hearing it on the radio.  I fell in love, not only with the vocals, but the lyrics. Natalie Grant is truly gifted.

As you listen, check the main words out.  They are so sweet:

I will stumble, I will fall down, but I will not be moved, I will make mistakes, I will face heartache, but I will not be moved.On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand, I will not be moved.

How amazing is that? Oh, and her voice isn’t too shabby either!

So, any songs rock your world lately?

    It’s November, it’s cold, and the first snow has already flown. That means I’m leaning on Jimmy Buffett to get me through until Spring.

    These lyrics jumped out at me this morning:

    Some people never find it,
    Some only pretend,
    But I just want to live happily ever after
    Every now and then.

    Not contemporary (although I listen to lots of that also), but I love writing while listening to Handel’s Messiah straight through. The libretto is from the OT and NT, and the verses are stunning when put together

    Natalie Grant’s an inspiration. Her work — along with Sara Groves — in bringing human trafficking to the forefront of the world’s attention is admirable.

    Although, I’m not really a country music fan, I’ve been listening to a lot of Brooks & Dunn ballads lately. It helps to get me in the scene of what I’m working on.

    Mandisa (American Idol cast off) was at the WOF conference this past Saturday. What a beautiful girl. Her radiance shines from the inside out. I like the lyrics to her song: Only the World. It’s uplifting and a reminder that, what brings us down, are forces we can’t see. She does a remake of Mary Mary’s Shackles too! I love those lyrics!

    Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
    I just wanna praise you
    (what’cha wanna do? )
    I just wanna praise you
    (yeah, yeah)
    You broke the chains now I can lift my hands

    I’m a goth/hardrock/grung/metal head, but I sure do love to praise too!

    Nice N Grant song, lynn! Thank you!

    This is a really hard choice for me. I think the album Michael W Smith put out, Freedom, moves me to great depths. When I hear these instrumental offerings, my mind begins to fire and I envision stories faster than I can write them down.
