Every Friday I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from either 15, 25, 30, or 35 years ago this weekend (rotating each week).
It’s the 1ST Friday of the month, so I go back 15 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday April 01ST 2007:
- “Procrastinating” – Stellar Kart
- “Wake Up ! Wake Up !” – Everyday Sunday
- “Live Like We’re Alive” – Nevertheless
- “Forgiven” – Relient K
- “After The World” – Disciple
Those are all classics of the era right there. In my 8TH month of salvation I was completely immersed in the Christian pop and rock scene via my church, local radio, and online. Every single one of those songs (and many more of the time) bring me back to a part of my life that was unlike any before it. I was a baby Christian – on fire for Christ – a few months before my 40TH birthday.
Here’s the official music video for my # 2 hit that week 15 years ago:
Sometimes I wish I could recapture a sliver of that euphoria that I experienced during those early months as a baby Christian, but God does not intend to stay in place. He wants us to keep moving forward, and keep maturing with a soul on fire for Him. Don’t be sleepwalking through endless days. Don’t be procrastinating. Live like we’re alive !
Next #RetroFriday I’ll go back 25 years ago to April 1997. It’s when German Eurodance was dominant on the pop charts.
This is the end of an abbreviated blog weekend, as #SundayScripture and #Top10Monday are on hiatus this weekend. They will both return next weekend. In fact a full weekend of blogging returns next weekend – with 4 new entries on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.
