A Van Playlist & People in Costumes

Ok... so here's a sampling of the music we found yesterday...
  1. Roy Orbison  "You Got it"
  2. Bruce Springteen "Dancing in the Dark"
  3. Bon Jovi "Livin' on a Prayer"
  4. Lionel Richie "Dancing on the Ceiling"
  5. Tammy Wynette "Take me to your world"
  6. Jim Croce "Operator"
  7. Blue Oyster Cult "Don't Fear the Reaper"
  8. A-Ha "Take On Me"
  9. Anita Baker "Same Old Love"
  10. Thin Lizzy "The Boys are back in town"
Some of these songs are kind of crappy, but some are genius. Tell us what's playing on your iPods right now... we're music lovers and always interested in finding new stuff.

Currently Listening: Mates of State "Get Better"... Lee showed it to me. I love it!

-jack and the boys

We played at Universal Studios today! Amazing. And of course, we rode all the rides. Leeland saw a gang of random characters back stage and he got some pix. These are a bit creepy to me for some reason...

I don't have an ipod or mp3 player, but I do have a portable CD player. Lol. I have 6 cds that I currently alternate in listening to. Here they are:

Opposite Way and Sound of Melodies-Your songs really inspire me so Sound of Melodies is currently most listened to.

Daylight and The Heat by NEEDTOBREATHE-Until recently they were my number 1 favorite band, but now they're tied with two others.


Alive and Transported and Portable Sounds by tobyMac-He's amazing.

Those are my Number 1 favorite bands (all tied). I really enjoy music that reaches down, grabs your soul and says "Hey, Pay attention!". lol. Thank you guys for your music! May God bless you and yours!

~Laura B.

P.S. I saw you guys at Spirit West Coast and you were amazing! Just wanted to add that. Heehe.

I've also been listening to This Beautiful Republic's new CD Perceptions, and I'm constantly playing "Feel Good Drag" off of Anberlin's website.

Christopher said...

Current albums for the ride to work:

Charlie Hall: The Bright Sadness
Leeland: Opposite Way
Fernado Ortega: The Shadow of Your if you do not have this, I would recommend obtaining it. Incredible (although its more relaxed, a non music from across the pond feel).
Diana Krall: Live in Paris. (Necessity for all jazz lovers)

Mikaela said...

Nice, just got back from a road trip. We were playing Family Force 5 nonstop, Bob Marley, and a bunch of random techno songs. "Take On Me" is awesome! :)

serendipitysal said...

Next up on my iPod, one more notable song:

Travis: Driftwood (live)

(There's just something about hearing thousands of people singing along with your music, isn't that right guys?)

The live concert video to this song is pretty cool...

You guys were totally awesome on Saturday at Rock the Universe! Thank you for the opportunity to worship with you.

Okay so I am listening to some of my friends at church and their new project EPO. The song is called "Always Just the Same."

Leeland Forum said...

I LOOVE Take on Me by A-ha, it's an instant classic if you just add water. Also, I opened a Leeland fan forum for those who want to chat about Leeland and Christian music, as well as just talk.

Sarah said...

I've got a question for Leeland...

What model Rickenbacker do you have? I have been wanting to get one, and wonder if it's worth the money. I already have an American standard Telecaster.



mike d said...

Jesus Culture, Amazing Worship. Just listen to them, enough said.

If you look them up on itunes you may have to search Kim Walker.

How He Loves Us, unbelievable song!
You Wont Relent, maybe even better!!

Gary Andrew Clarke said...
