This week’s Twisted Mixtape Tuesday theme: Spiritual Songs.
Jen could use some spirit, but I’m not sure if she needs some prayer or more of the cheerleading type due to the horrible blog issues she’s had to endure as of late. This week she’s in a temporary (blog) location, hopefully things will be resolved by next week. I changed the address in the button at the top so you should go to the right place when you click on it.
I wonder why she chose that theme? Could it be because she has her very own performer at home who is now famous on YouTube with his rendition of The Devil Went Down To Georgia? I think so…
(By the way Jen, I totally want his autograph.)
I felt really bad for not playing along last week. I wasn’t really feeling the them, and what it brought to mind. Do you REALLY want to hear how I feel about Handel’s Messiah? Maybe in a few weeks…
That’s neither here nor there, anyway.
After much thought I think I put together something that in a really, roundabout, bizarre way is kind of spiritual. So I used my very scientific method of adding whatever comes to mind. You’re off the hook from hearing songs such as “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life“, because I just used it. Annnnnnnyway…
Swing Low, Sweet Chariot-Johnny Cash
It IS a “spiritual”, after all.
I love love love love love this next song by Josh Turner and that voice of his! He’s not bad to look at either…
Long Black Train-Josh Turner
I’ve always liked this song, I’m particularly fond of this version. I’m not sure how religious it really is, but it has the word hallelujah in it… so it counts, right?
Another song I adore, sung by a friend that I adore. Rascal Flatts has nothing on this guy! I apologize for the fact that this link doesn’t work like the other ones.
God Bless the Broken Road-Marcus Collins (of The Texas Tenors)
And what would a music compilation about songs having to do with spirtiuality be without this song:
There you have it, that’s as spiritual as I’m going to get this week. Now next week, that’s the one I’m waiting for. SCARY SONGS! Woo-hoo! Don’t forget to follow the link at the top to listen to what other bloggers shared!
