I created this list of songs from suggestions and my own ideas about songs churches might not know or sing, but should hear, as artists express 1) their own perceptions of God, 2) the realities., wonder, and brokenness of human experience and 3) what the church could be as it is shaped by the gospel to bring people and their creator together.

This spring I have been taming the overgrown yard of the house I purchased last summer. I am out there a lot and overhear a lot of oldies radio rock from the yards of some of my neighbours. To drown that out I play this - I haven't played it aloud for the neighbourhood yet, but I fully expect passersby to boogie down for a bit as they walk by the house. Here's to shaking it with the robins, squirrels and the blackberry bushes!

Created as a companion set, "Falling in" and "Falling out" focus on the feelings we experience during a relationship. Ups, downs, and in betweens. Use these mixes to celebrate a new relationship, mourn an old one, or just to remember what it means to be in or out of love.

Music can do so much for the mood. After going through a somewhat difficult couple of weeks and feel unmotivated and lethargic, I decided it was high time to make a playlist that would up my spirits and get me out and about. Here you have it. A nice little mix of upbeat and inspirational songs.

Imagine: The moonlight slips in through your window and the shadows of your worldy possessions seem to morph into frightening shapes. What was once your coat hanging on the rack now shows itself as a tall dangerous man looming in your dark corner. You pray for sleep for no other reason than to escape the nightmare of the things that go bump in the night. Now slowly reach for your iPod and pull the covers up to your nose, press play and slip into a piano dream.
Featuring: Beethoven, Yanni, Debussy, Hans Zimmer, Brahms

With 31 days left until I leave school forever, I made a list of 31 songs to get me through it. They're songs about growing up, they're songs about letting go and moving on, they're songs for summer. For me, these songs mean healing, and the end of an era.
Featuring: Howie Day, Ne-Yo, A Fine Frenzy, Bon Jovi, Green Day

"There are those hearts that never mend again once they are broken. Or if they do mend, they heal themselves in a crooked and lopsided way, as if sewn together by a careless craftsman." [[ The Tale of Despereaux]]
It's an inevitable part of life, everyone is let down by someone they love eventually. When your heart is broken sometimes you just need a good cry. Every break up is different and this playlist ranges from the throaty pop-noir of Nicole Atkins to the soothing eletronic sound of Frou Frou. No matter your style of music I think everyone will relate to at least a few of the songs. So wrap up in a blanket, break out the tissue box and explore all your emotions so you can finally begin to let your heart heal.
Featuring: Coldplay, Snow Patrol, Brian Mcknight, Citizen Cope, Sara Bareilles

Like title said, have you ever got a funny feeling in a warm summer night, maybe just sitting outside by yourself and staring at the sky? I do. And this is a simple playlist inspired by that, for all the people who just need to stop for a minute =)

so I had this "brilliant" idea some time in 2003. I decided to re-tag all of my (hit) single mp3 files back to the original album+year+track# from which the each song originally released. That way, I could look across all genres and pull together a playlist from a year (say 1980). Well, I spent the better part of five years tagging 10,000 mp3 files...I have since tagged everything out of the gate so as to avoid another five-year tagging project.
I am fucking ecstatic to present...1980!!!
Whether you were, working hard for the Re-Elect Carter presidential campaign, hanging out in your Uncle Frank's backyard staring at his new black corvette, watching in awe as Fernando Valenzuela mowed down opposing batters like a Toro lawn tractor, saving your quarters from the tooth fairy for the next trip to the arcade to play this new game called Pacman, p...

So the book club ladies are gathering this evening at your place. You have cooked, cleaned, primped...but now you need to set the mood. You don't just want to dial up the latest Lady Gaga CD on the new iPod Touch the hubby bought you for your birthday (that you plan to show off). Yeh, it's up-beat and all, but it is almost numbingly upbeat.
So your are hosting your first gallery opening, and you are looking for music that focuses the minds' of the attendees on the following thoughts: "This event is so friggin' hip, cool and fabulous." "What genius picked this music?" "MAN! That painting is KICK-ASS!! Where is my wallet!!!"
So you finally decided to kick the local "Lite" music station that has been playing for years in your hair salon to the curb. Your clients were actually falling asleep in your stylists' chairs. But if not "Lite Rock" f...

This playlist really empowers me to go fast and to keep up a great pace. "Welcome Home" starts off kind of slow which to me feels great when first starting out, it does get progressively faster which allows me to build a pace. I also love sprinting the last few minutes of my run so something like Mudvayne really helps me push myself and with Chad repeating so fucking determined over and over its hard not to. Hope you like, and helps you as much as it did me! ;)

I've been at university for 7 months now, and I can honestly say that they've been the best 7 months of my life. I've met some awesome people, and had some amazing (yet crazy) times. We live in the middle of the countryside, so we often do things which seem insane... maybe we are. This is a playlist dedicated to the past 7 months. Every single song has it's own memory attached to it for me personally. And for those of you which don't share these memories (all of you) then these are still great songs to listen to and make you feel good :)

Memories from lax summer days of 2009 brewed together with a collaboration of idyllic sounds, celestial vocals and island melodies. Most parties in miami tend to have cultural influences from the spanish and island inhabitants there. As a result the focus of the music relays in zesty reggaeton beats, powerful trumpets and spunky melodies. The image that New York portrays, on the other hand, is more like techno && House ... ((well where i was at least...there are places where the strong rican and dominican population provide some pretty hyped parties...hopefully one day i can attend one )) Songs that i've chosen to remind me of that will have more synth and autotune involved... EnJoy (: which club style would you most likely be GETTiN DOWN to? shore club in miami or in the big apple? Also lemme know what you think :) If u feel it's an awful representation ...

As love casts a gaze across any airport in the world, it sees joy & pain, ecstasy & agony, affliction & absolution unfolding within the unrelenting aura of arrivals & departures. Where else can two people be experiencing love's immense ecstasy ten feet from two others experiencing love's crushing agony? The airport is one of the great paradoxical locations on this planet.
Imagine the number of love's transactions that occur on any given day at any given airport in any given city; it must be staggering. And think of all of the chapters of all love's novellas that are written within the boundaries of airport concourses. Private and personal love stories, some more amazing than anything ever conceived in any Hollywood studio. And all of that is unfolding on a constant basis - love never afforded even a brief respite.
Nowhere the idiom: "if these...

This list is purely based off of the songs that provoke sadness in me. They aren't necessarily all sad songs, however these songs make me cry, depending on events, memories, and people associated in my mind with the song. There is a lot of Death Cab For Cutie in here, it's based on a point of time in my life where I kind of lost myself, the death of someone I loved a lot, several close friends, and things got really difficult, and I was heavily influenced by the lyrics. I stopped listening to them for a year afterward, and still some of the songs are really hard for me, most specifically the ones included in here.

The songs that make up this playlist are a compilation of protest songs. Some old, some new, all of which portray the artists views and feelings on particular topics. Whether is may be war, unequal rights, political injustice or the skewed views of society, the artists of this playlist stand up for a cause and voice their opinion on a variety of topics.
Most songs come from the 60's or 70's seeing as the political actions and protest taken in that time, but there are some newer songs that are relevant and I think should hold a place with some of the greats.
Oh, to be a song stumming protester of the 60's, luckly times they are a changing!
Sometimes you love someone with all your heart, knowing they will never look at you the same. As much as you try to convince yourself not to love them, your heart takes over. You try to move on, end up meeting someone else incredible who falls in love with you unconditionally, but no matter how hard you try to accept that love, you still can't stop thinking about the other person.
