Every Friday night I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference from either 10, 20, or 30 years ago (rotating each week). Here it is – for the week ending Sunday August 24TH 2008:
- “Closer Than We Think” – The Classic Crime
- “Out Of Control” – Capital Lights
- “Shine With Me” – P.O.D.
- “Sleeping In” – Nevertheless
- “You Have What I Need” – Hawk Nelson
10 years ago this past week I was celebrating the 2ND anniversary of the start of my salvation, and those were the hottest radio hits at the time.
“Sleeping In” by Nevertheless went on to hit # 1 on my chart 3 weeks later, so that’s a spoiler right there for the next time I present my Top 5 from 2008. I absolutely love this song – probably more so now than I did back then. I love the message of the song. I love the beat of the song. It is one of the greatest Christian pop songs in the entire 12-year history of my fantastic journey.
… And it’s got me sleeping in.
Every day God. It’s the same thing.
Yeah you caught me sleeping in.
I’m still hiding. I’m still waiting.
I need you here with me to face the world outside.
Cause I’m tired of sleeping in …
But you – lazybones – how long will you sleep ?
When will you wake up ? (Proverbs 6:9 NLT)
It’s halftime. I’ll be back on Sunday with Scripture, and then on Monday it’s my brand new Top 10 music chart. Enjoy your Saturday. Don’t get caught sleeping in.
