Five From My Playlist - 12/30/2005

Here's another five fabulous songs!

1) "Because of You" - Kelly Clarkson. The lyrics in this song are so beautifully moving.

2) "God on the Mountain" - Taranda Greene. Taranda does a great job with this gospel favorite.

3) "She Walks in Beauty" - Sissel. Incredible. That's all I can say.

4) "God of Wonder" - Third Day. This song has a powerful, uplifting message.

5) "Home" - Michael Bublé. Michael has a wonderfully old school swing voice. And this track is just fabulous.


Five From My Playlist - 12/26/2005

I am a music-aholic. I got an MP3 player for Christmas, and I am in paradise downloading music like crazy and copying over all my CDs. I decided to periodically post a list of 5 songs that I really enjoy, so that I can share my findings. So here goes...

1) "Remember When It Rained" - Josh Groban. Oh how I love this song. It gives me chills every time I hear it, especially the piano spotlight towards the end.

2) "Alpha and Omega" - The Gaither Vocal Band. I could listen to David Phelps sing anything. His descant part in this song is awesome.

3) "The Prettiest Flowers" - Sonya Isaacs. Sonya's strong soprano makes this hauntingly beautiful song especially moving.

4) "Habanera" - Charlotte Church. Love this song, and this is a spectacular arrangement of it.

5) "Your Song" - Ewan McGregor. I like Elton John's original version, but there is something about this one from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack that I particularly love. Maybe it's the orchestra and fabulous backup singing.


Goodbye, House!

We closed on our house in Harrisburg today. We are one step closer to being able to build our dream home!
