Music Monday: Carry On My Wayward Son

I absolutely love cover songs. This is one of my personal, all-time favorites. It is a cover of “Carry On My Wayward Son” by The Showdown originally performed by Kansas. Not too much to say about this one except that it is an amazing cover. The Showdown Carry On My Wayward Son Lyrics Carry on my wayward son There’ll be peace when you are done Lay your weary head to rest Don’t you cry no more Once I rose above the noise and confusion Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion I was soaring ever higher But I flew...

Music Monday: Journey of a Spruce Tree

I absolutely love songs that tell a story. “Journey of a Spruce Tree” by Orion Walsh is one of my personal favorites and it is off the album First By Water, Then By Fire. It has love, action, drama, sadness. It is a great story of atypical friendship. If you enjoy the song, you can pick up a free copy on his Bandcamp page. Orion Walsh Journey of a Spruce Tree Lyrics I opted to leave off the lyrics on this song because you should really stop what you are doing and just listen closely to the words to truly...

Music Monday: Chainsaw

Family Force 5 is and has been for a long time one of my favorite bands. Most of their songs are just plain ol’ fun and are not supposed to be taken too serious. “Chainsaw” is definitely no exception. Have fun and enjoy the fun. Family Force 5 (feat. Tedashii) Chainsaw Lyrics Yeah, they like the way I do this When I crank it like a chainsaw Yeah, they like the way I do this When I crank it like a chainsaw Full throttle heavy metal Set the bar next level Wasteland gettin’ all janky Soul Glow, chainsaw Lay in...

Music Monday: Car Radio

“Car Radio” is one of my personal favorites by a band named Twenty One Pilots. When I first listened to it, I not sure I knew what to think about it. But the more times I heard it, the more I fell in love with the idea of losing my car radio. Ok, maybe not really losing my radio, but don’t miss the point. Sometimes we are so distracted by the noise filling the void in our ears, that we forget to listen to the things around us. For instance, I deliver and pick up my kids from school every morning. Most...

Music Monday: Everything’s Gonna Be Alright

This is one of my family’s favorite songs. It is “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” by Mike Mains & The Branches. It’s a blast to listen to and you can’t help but smile and sing along. This is an appropriate song for someone having a bad day. It’s also a great song for someone rebounding from a bad day. Mike Mains & The Branches Everything’s Gonna Be Alright Lyrics Everything Everything is gonna be alright Be alright Everything Everything is gonna be alright Be alright Hush now, baby Don’t you cry Imma sing you to sleep tonight I know it’s strange and hard...

Music Monday: I Will Fail You

This particular song really grabbed my attention and the lyrics really speak for themselves. Because I am human, I am a failure to someone. That someone could be my wife, kids, boss, parent, friend, or most of all myself. But even in the midst of my failure, there is one who will never fail and that is my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8 (emphasis added) The followup video is an explanation of what the song means to writer...
