The Major’s Top 5 Hits RETRO – 2008

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 December 07TH 2008:

  1. “Maps” – Falling Up
  2. “Outrage” – Capital Lights
  3. “I Give Up” – Stellar Kart
  4. “Sure Shot” – Run Kid Run
  5. “Say What You Will” – Ever Stays Red

“Maps” was the 6TH of 7 hits for Falling Up during the latter portion of the 2ND era of my chart. It spent the entire month of December of 2008 at # 1, and it was the middle of 3 straight # 1 hits for them in 2008 and 2009.

The word “Maps” does not appear in the song. Here’s the chorus:

The further I’m from you – the harder I try to exist.
Take these blinds from my eyes, and wake me from the inside.
Somebody tell me how did it come to this ?
Take these blinds from my eyes, and wake me – wake me from the inside.

Sounds like my story from the Summer of 2006 – just prior to salvation. I was far from God. I didn’t even know Him. But God knew me. He saw me struggling. He extended His hand. I reached for it. He rescued me. He saved me. He asked me to follow Him. I did. He took the blinds from my eyes. He woke me from the inside. Thank You God for saving my life !

God can do the same for you too. Here are two more lines from the song “Maps”:

Further out – maybe You could meet me where I am.
Further out – I know there is hope within Your hands.

God will meet you wherever you are. You are not too far away from the reach of God. If you’re not ready yet – then God will wait for you. He will be there for you when you are ready. It’s not too late to receive Him, as long as you are still living here on His creation. There is hope within His Hands.

It’s halftime. I’ll be back on Sunday and Monday with my remaining two blog posts for this weekend. Enjoy your Saturday. Thank You for your time.
