My awesome in-laws gave me a hefty gift certificate to iTunes as a birthday present. (30 years old tomorrow. THIRTY. YEARS. OLD.)
I'm itchin' to spend it, but thought I would see if anyone has some favorite albums to suggest.
My musical taste runs far and wide. All suggestions sought and welcomed.
Maybe my best friend Lisa has some newly favorite country hits to suggest?
Mike Farris' CD "Salvation in Lights" is the best music purchase I've made in YEARS. Keith and I are both obsessed with this album! It's fantastic gospel meets southern rock meets the blues. Oh, it's WAY good.
Newsboys...Go cd is one I love! And Toby Mac...One World? I just can think of that song!
And just wait for 35...one loses their mind on the day!
Thirty years old!?!? I can't believe I am even associating with someone on the verge of joining AARP! Juuuust kidding. I'm just a few months behind ya. Have a great birthday! I wish I had some good recommendations, but I can't even tell you the name of the songs I like--much less who sings them! I'm clueless!
Happy Birthday!! Wait 'til 40 hits, lol. As for songs, I love everything Third Day. Casting Crowns is also good.
Hi Starr, yeah I'm turning 30 this year too. Yikes. Can you believe I don't even own an ipod? I'm kinda clueless too when it comes to music now. I noticed on your blog that you're working, what are you doing?
As for music, I have become a big fan of Rosie Thomas now a days (guess why? - Aug 22nd and counting...)Anyway, her latest "These friends of mine" is my favorite. Also, Sufjan Stevens if you are into that kind of music. I think my favorite song of his is "Do anything for you" but the official title is something like "for the widows of.."(some city in Michigan, I think?) Another one I like is Iron and Wine. Of course, none of these I have recommended play "christian" music, but they are Christians who play music, if you know what I mean. As far as the Christian music goes, Joey and I are big fans of the Passion cds. Finally, if you are into soundtracks, my current favorite is Across the Universe. I don't know if I should recommend the movie, but the soundtrack rocks!
Oh yea! Happy 30th Birthday!! That is so great! It is fun to see that all of my friends are turning 30 before me! ;)
