My December Music Review

I've been wanting to make one of these, just some amazing songs that have caught my fancy as of late, both new and old. Anyway here ya go:

This is War - 30 Seconds to Mars
This song is pretty cool. I really dig the optimistic and spirit rallying lyrics mixed in with the crowd melodies. Nice.

A warning to the prophet, the liar, the honest
This is War
To the leader, the pariah, the victim, the messiah
This is war
Its the moment of truth and the moment to lie
Its the moment to live and the moment to die
The moment to fight, the moment to fight, to fight, to fight, to fight

Tik Tok - Ke$ha
This song is a guilty pleasure. It's unbelievably catchy and her voice is hypnotic. My best friend and I only have one small question... Honestly why Mick Jagger? He's ugly as sin!

Ain't got a care in world, but got plenty of beer
Ain't got no money in my pocket, but I'm already here
And now, the dudes are lining up cause they hear we got swagger
But we kick em to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger

Come to Your Senses - Coffey Anderson
This is a really great song. The lyrics are almost like a rap, but yet still managed to be sung. They are also too true. I think all of us have a come to our senses moment at some point. Also nice job including OneRepublic's Apologize in there. Nice. I love Coffey's guitar picking. He's going to go places.

No lyrics. Sorry!

Savior - Rise Against
I've always liked these guys, they always have quality lyrics that either make you think, or tell a story. This is one of those stories. Not to mention the chorus is just so darn catchy.

if this ain't love then how do we get out?
because I don't know
that's when she said I don't hate you boy
I just want to save you while there's still something left to save
that's when I told her I love you girl
but I'm not the answer to the questions that you still have

The Sound - Switchfoot
If you haven't already heard the song, then you probably heard the instrumentals during College Football. It's been on a lot of highlights and ESPN commericals these last few weeks. The lyrics really remind us of our neurotic culture we are stuck in. Take a listen.

Let it rise above
Rise above
There is no song
Louder than love
This is the sound of a heartbeat
this is the sound of the discontented mouths
of a haunted nation
we are the voice of breaking down

Keys to the Kingdom - Group 1 Crew
I first saw the name of the group and lowered my expectations. This is excellent though. Great rock\hip hop mix, lyrics are so true. We do have the keys, it's up to us when to advance it.

it all started when Adam gave up his own palace
now the earth waits for it's rightful owner
2,000 years ago the second Adam told us
the kingdom is at hand, died for the sins of man
just so he could bring us back to his original plan
where we rule over the land, meet every demand
while nature awaits for us kings to take a stand
so we need to understand we can change our circumstances
the kingdom is in us so we choose when to advance

The Words I Would Say - Sidewalk Prophets
This is such a great pick-me-up song. It's lyrics just soothe the soul, and it's relevant no matter what kind of issue you are going through.

Be strong in the Lord and,
Never give up hope,
You're going to do great things,
I already know,
God's got His hand on you so,
Don't live life in fear,
Forgive and forget,
But don't forget why you're here,
Take your time and pray,
These are the words I would say,

Listen Here

Fire It Up - Thousand Foot Krutch
This is the ultimate get up and go anthem. It's got some licks as well as a catchy sing out loud chorus.

I'm in love with the feeling
Of pressure to the ceiling
We come with intention
To face my opposition
Get raw when it's time
To lay it on the line
To the walls where we're taking it
Let your light shine, like
Let your light shine, like
Let your light shine

I'm Moving On - Rascal Flatts
This showed up in my shuffle the other day, I really needed this song. It's basically described where I've been at these last 2-3 weeks.

I sold what I could and packed what I couldn't
Stopped to fill up on my way out of town
I've loved like I should but lived like I shouldn't
I had to lose everything to find out
Maybe forgiveness will find me somewhere down this road
I'm movin' on

Praise and Adore - Wavorly
This is the worship song I've been running to lately. You can tell these guys mean this from the depths of their heart. It's a calming song. Also towards the end when it does get energetic, I'm a sucker for cymbal crashing.

So I praise and adore you
Lay it all down before you
In every way you're beautiful
From my heart
I praise and adore you
Made the world beautiful
And I cannot stand and deny you created life
And some live without it

There ya go!

Much Love,
