Every Friday night I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from either 10, 20, or 30 years ago (rotating each week). Here it is – for the week ending Sunday March 08TH 2009:
- “Surrender Saved My Life” – This Beautiful Republic
- “Dead Man” – We As Human
- “Cross My Heart” – Nevertheless
- “Let’s Dance” – Hawk Nelson
- “The Last, The Lost, The Least” – Relient K
Nevertheless – what an awesome band that I grew up with as a baby Christian. They were very prominent on Christian radio, and as a result – the soundtrack of my life during those early years discovering and exploring who Jesus Christ was, is, and will be.
Nevertheless charted with 5 radio singles back then – “The Real” (peaked at # 24 in 2006), “Live Like We’re Alive” (# 2 for 4 weeks in 2007), “Time (To Let This Go)” (# 5 in 2007), “Sleeping In” (# 1 for 3 weeks in 2008), and “Cross My Heart” (# 3 in 2009). Hearing some of those early songs a dozen years later gives me goosebumps, and reminds me of just how far I’ve come since I first stumbled onto this fantastic journey.
Music has played an important role in my life of nearly 52 years. At the age of 39 God used music to lift me out of the slimy pit – out of the mud and mire. He set my feet on a rock – and gave me a firm place to stand. That’s why I share God’s Good News through His music.
It’s halftime. I’ll be back on Sunday and Monday with two more blog posts for this weekend. Enjoy your Saturday. Share the Good News with all who will listen.
