Music has always been a medium where people communicated ideas, and said what was on their hearts, regardless of whether it was controversial, heartfelt, emotive, encouraging or even confronting. Music has always been a universal language of sorts- whatever emotion you were feeling (or still feeling), there is possibly a song out there that speaks directly to you and your needs. I can remember back when I was a teenager, purchasing albums and listening just for listening sake, enjoying music for what it is- music. Call me old fashioned, but I am not looking forward to the day when CD’s become out of print.
The series of WOW Hits, an annual compilation featuring the supposed best of songs in Christian music in a current year, have always been one of the most popular, criticised and publicised releases within Christian music.

During the 2000s, when online viewing of movies wasn’t much of a craze, purchasing DVD’s was the way to go if you wanted to watch your favourite movie that you saw in the cinemas a few months prior. While prices of DVD’s have relatively stayed the same throughout the years; what has drastically changed has been the amount of bonus features on the DVD, and how many discs in the DVD package.
