Christian music

Hey there, folks. Anyone have a favorite Chrisitan group they'd care to share?

I was recently given a cd that I've really enjoyed, but I have only about 8 Christian bands that I really like. I'm wide open to suggestions. I like punk, ska, classic rock, hard rock, etc.

What do y'all like?

Not a Christian, but I'm a closet fan of Red.

The music you are hearing is
"Drinking From My Saucer"
by Michael Combs.

I've never made a fortune,
It's probably too late now.
Oh, but I don't worry about that much,
'Cause I'm happy anyhow.

As I go along life's journey,
I'm reaping better than I sowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

Ain't got a lot of riches,
Sometimes the going's rough.
But I've got a friend in Jesus,
And that makes me rich enough.

I thank God for all His Blessings on me,
And the mercy that He's bestowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

Oh sure, I've been thru some storms,
And yes, I'm sure there were times when my,
Well, my Faith must have got a little thin,
But you know what it seemed like?
One day all at once, those dark clouds broke,
And that old sun, she started shinin' again.

So Lord, help me not to grumble and complain,
About the tough rows I have hoed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

And if I should go on living,
If the way gets steep and rough.
I won't ask for other Blessings,
'Cause I'm already Blessed enough.

May I never be too busy,
To help another bear his load.
And I'll keep drinking from my saucer,Lord,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

Yes, I'll keep drinkin' from my saucer, Lord,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

My Cup Has Overflowed.

I am a Christian, but I don't listen to a lot of Christian music because the majority of it so badly recorded, by that I mean the sound quality is second rate. I'm not a heavy metal person either but I didn't mind some of POD's stuff and they seemed to have a better recording system used. And most Christian music is sleepy time stuff which I can't get into at all be it Christian or secular. But I admit that since I haven't listened to Christian music much lately that I don't know a lot of new bands so I did find the Red song interesting, I'll have to You Tube search it to see what other songs they did. I know that the Christian CD's my wife has bought recently have not been well done but she's into the sleepy stuff and she's severely tone deaf!!

I listen to a lot of secular music, but nothing I listen to would be rated higher then PG. I also have about 1/2 of my music in vinyl and that's the direction I'm going because that medium has better high frequency responses without the clipping found in CD's and a more warmer sound, there's very little Christian vinyl on the market. I do have my eyes open Christian albums on vinyl that Bob Dylan did, but so far I haven't found any locally so I may just buy some CD's; Dylan does a great job with high quality recordings.

I think the big problem with Christian artists is that they sell majority of their music to teens and early 20's people, so they think the same way that secular pop musicians think in that the pop crowd doesn't know what good sound sounds like, so why spend the money to make high quality recordings? And mostly their right! The youth download their music onto MP3 or IPods which severely condenses the sound then listen to the music through crappy ear buds, the whole thought of having high quality sound is totally lacking in youth today.

Bob Dylan-Knockin' on Heaven's Door


==================================================

Uploaded by DogSwede1 on May 29, 2008
Best version ever performed!

Ted Christopher - vocals
Mark Knopfler - guitar

This version was recorded in memory of the Dunblane Massacre 13 March 1996, were 16 children and one adult got killed.
A new verse was written, and the children choir who sing the chorus are brothers and sisters of the victims.
The song was released 9 December 1996, and it reached number 1. The proceeds went to charities for children.

Enjoy!

New verse;

Lord these guns have caused too much pain
This town will never be the same
So for the bairns of Dunblane
We ask please never again
Best version of Knockin on heavens door - With Mark Knopfler
