Church song or "Secular"?

I'll just do both.

The 23rd Psalm - Church
When I Get Where I'm Going - Brad Paisley - Secular witha churchy undertone

Oh dear...so many, so many. But the lumpiest would probably be 'My Love' by Bebo Norman (although for the full effect you really need to hear this one in context of the whole CD) and God Moves in a Mysterious Way.

I Would Not Live Alway

Fields of Gold - Eva Cassidy

Simon - Lifehouse

Hosea - Shane and Shane
Psalm 145 - Shane and Shane

Puccini. oh man, Puccini.

Oh, and I Have Dreamed and No One's Gonna Harm You-- Barbara Striesand at her very bestest.

Blest Be the Tie That Binds

Christmas Shoes - I'm not sure who sings it.

But like FSLL said, there are so many!

Nomos said...

Just my imagination - The Temptations.

I'm sure nobody has heard of it, but mine is:

Endless Love - Luther Vandross

Ludwig said...

Cal-el of Krypton said...

"Sara Beth" by Rascal Flatts and "I need the prayers of those I love" in our hymnal

Queen Shenaynay said...

Triumphal Feast
It Is Well With My Soul
Do Not I Love Thee

Surely He Hath Borne Our Griefs, from Handel's Messiah, sung by Larnelle Harris, Steve Green and Michael English -- wipes me out.

I Know You By Heart by Eva Cassidy

Trees Stand Still - Bebo Norman

No contest:
Ashokan Farewell--the version in which Sullivan Ballou's letter to his wife is read. Ask my kids. It's automatic.

A song Robert wrote for me and presented on my 50th birthday. Can't get through it.

Parting Hand -- all the verses, and really meaning it.

Nessun Dorma. Yes Dan, Puccini. I just know M. Butterfly in a Cliff Notes sortof way, and I certainly don't know what exactly is being sung, but the sheer brilliance of the music conveys enough without the storyline and literally moves me to tears when I hear it.

And then...several favorite Sacred Harp numbers and hymns.

Queen Shenaynay said...

Oh, Rachel - I forgot that song Robert wrote for you. Blubber city. ::melts::

Ha! Brain Cell Freeze!

Just remembered that Nessun Dorma is indeed by Puccini, but it's from Turandot and not M. Butterfly. Further proof that the music transcends the language and the storyline.

Oh well.

Hymns too numerous to mention, and "These Days" by Rascal Flatts.
