So I see this commercial all the time where this family takes a road trip because of the dying request of their grandfather who wanted to see America but time and other things made it impossible. And this is the song playing as this car commercial does its level best to wring all the emotional content it can and maybe bring a tear to your eyes.
So I give you Mike Massé, Sterling Cottam, and Jeff Hall singing America.
So some enterprising person took Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody and made it into a mini movie. That deserves a place on the Wednesday night line up.
What happens when you take the Beatles Sgt Pepper and Star Wars and hit frappe?
Something like this:
Continuing on with the theme of artists you don’t normally hear on Christian Radio we have The Choir.
These alt rockers have been the inspiration for bands such as Switchfoot and Sixpence None the Richer but it hasn’t translated to radio play. So take a listen and if you want to know more go to the website: The Choir
So I was pointed to this article that talks about bands that aren’t in the mainstream. The 77’s are what can be called a classic rock band similar to the Beatles, ELO, or U2 and definitely worth a listen.
The Deftones an art-metal group releases an album (made of actual vinyl) of covers. One of which was this cover of The Carrs Drive. I’ve listened to a lot of covers of this song and IMHO they do the best job.
So I was playing the drive your coworkers crazy with pop songs they can’t get out of their head game at work when I scored a telling blow with this Britney song. And for some reason I wondered what indie bands had ever covered pop songs which led me to Travis. So take a minute and enjoy.
