TOP TENs – Anticipated New Shows of forthcoming 2017/18 TV Season

Let’s face it, we all love a good TV show. And herein lies the problem. There’s only so many TV shows that last. And I mean really last, go the whole hog, like more than 5 seasons. Whether it’s because of low ratings, or just because, most TV shows never really move past 3-4 seasons, and quite often, it’s a shame, because a show would come along (a la Awake, Selfie, Smash, The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Trophy Wife, to name a few), that is great quality-wise, yet somewhere along the line, the powers that be decided that enough was enough. Nevertheless, as each TV season rolls around, avid TV show fans, like myself, tend to speculate and rank new TV shows, based on trailers, log-lines, the actors in them, however you may rank your new TV shows, I’m pretty sure you rank them too.

TOP 10 ___ (And Worship Wednesdays): Worship Songs That Will Impact A New Generation in 2017

Don’t you feel tired of singing the same songs every Sunday morning at church services? Not that there’s anything wrong with singing “How Great is Our God” for the billionth time, except when you realise that you are indeed singing it for the billionth time. Songs are great, but sometimes, all you want is to just sing a new song. And don’t fret, because God wants you to sing a new song as well. Not that I’m great with quoting from the bible, but I do remember this- that we were supposed to sing a new song to the Lord, according to the start of Psalm 96:1. We were restless for a reason, and while I know there’s nothing wrong with singing songs to death, sometimes to sing a new song (with obviously a new easy-to-learn melody) means to bring forth a spirit of re-awakening and renewal, as we revisit some truths that may have been lost over the years in favour of monotony and the mundane.

TOP 10 ___: Top Thirty Inspirational ‘Mainstream’ Songs Over The Past 5 Years!

Welcome to the latest instalment of our most recent blog series Top Tens. Last time, we unveiled our favourite animated Disney movies of the 90’s and 2000’s!

This upcoming week is probably one of the most anticipated weeks of the year thus far- the movie The Shack releases, starring Sam Worthington, Octavia Spencer and Tim McGraw, based on the critically acclaimed novel, where the main character has a spiritual awakening after a tragic event forces him to basically revaluate his life (yeah, I still need to read the book, but it’s on my to do list!). Just this past week, the companion movie soundtrack released- while we are reviewing the album in the near future, within a few days; let me say that I have listened to the project, and the mix of songs from Christian, country and mainstream pop artists is quite unique and thought-provoking.

TOP 10 ___: Top Ten Animated Disney Movies of YesterYear (1990s and 2000s)

With all the live action Disney remakes that have been in the pipeline for the last few years, you wonder if Disney has any original idea left. Sad to say, when I heard this week that Disney was planning for The Lion King remake, this time with live action (sort of how I reckon the Jungle Book was created, using a lot of CGI) instead of it being animated, I scratched my head. Why? The cartoon version was good, in fact, revolutionary for its time period. Is it because they always want to update the stories so that the kids of today can relate? Regardless of their motivations, live action reboots of original cartoon classics like Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Pete’s Dragon and The Jungle Book have already been completed and others like Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, Mary Poppins Returns, Christopher Robin and The Lion King in the pipeline for a live action movie sometime in the future.

TOP 10 ___: (30 Songs to Have an Impact in 2017)

Another year, and you know what that means- another batch of songs that are going to be going to radio, songs that are going to be heard by millions of listeners on the radio, that impact into people’s homes throughout the course of the next 12 months. Now to predict which songs to release to radio, and songs that could be poised to have an impact in people’s lives can be a difficult, yet I’m willing to give it a good stab. Mind you, these songs that I list are in no way an indication of what could be on WOW Hits 2018. We all know that WOW Hits has their own formula and they’re not always right. And so, there are 12 months ahead of us, which songs do I reckon will be sung on a regular basis in homes around the world during that time? Read on to find out.

TOP 10 ___: (10 2016 CHRISTMAS ALBUMS WE NEVER REVIEWED)

Welcome to the latest instalment of our most recent blog series Top Tens. Last time, we unveiled 30 songs that should have been placed on previous WOW Hits compilations in my opinion.

On this particular Top Tens post however, before the year officially ends, I will delve into 10 Christmas albums from this year that we never reviewed, yet we planned to. While we reviewed Christmas albums from JJ Heller, Newsong, Amy Grant, Matthew West, Anthem Lights, Yancy, Audrey Assad, We Are Messengers, Jason Bare, Lauren Daigle, there were several other reviews that never eventuated, due to time constraints and simply because both Jon and I became busy with work. Which albums did we want to review, has we had ample time? Check out these 10 albums below! Which album were you sad that we didn’t review?
