A new year. 2016. With a load of music to be appreciated. Yet in this post we’re looking back at the years that were (the 2000s) and are highlighting 10 worship songs that the site have found to be uplifting and heartfelt. What are they, you may ask? Read on to find out.

I know it’s been a while since the last Throwback Tuesdays, yet with new albums from Kutless, Natalie Grant and Casting Crowns all releasing this coming week (Surrender, Be One and A Live Worship Experience respectively), I thought it would be fitting as a tribute to these bands to look back over the years, especially to 2005, and to see how these artists have evolved in their singing and songwriting skills. Because after all, isn’t this topical post about how songs, music, movies, TV series and the like have been influential over the times, and how they have actually stood the test of time, regardless of time itself?

What was your favourite song growing up? The track you couldn’t live without? The one that you would play and listen to 20 times in a row just because you could? The song that still has a place and has meaning in your heart now as much, or maybe even more so, than you had then? Even if you think you didn’t have a favourite song, I’m sure you did. The one you’d catch yourself singing to because you just can’t get it out of your head. The one that has had so much impact on you when you were younger that once it starts to play now, it brings back many fond memories about your youth.

It’s been 5 years since Newsboys reinvented themselves with Michael Tait at the helm and their comeback album Born Again. 10 years since Third Day’s Wherever You Are. 20 years since DC Talk’s Jesus Freak. 30 years since Carman’s ground-breaking album Comin’ on Strong. Makes you think that music, especially Christian music, has come a long way between then and now in 2015. In fact, dare I say that music that evokes nostalgia of the times that were can have just as much poignancy and meaning as something current and new? Why is it that sometimes we as a humanity are craving more for the new singles and songs when it is sometimes equally as necessary to immerse ourselves in the old and familiar? Can a song as timeless as “Jesus Freak” still carry a similar emotion and meaning to a current radio hit song like Hawk Nelson’s “Drops in the Ocean”? In light of the new member change in Audio Adrenaline (with Stellar Kart frontman Adam Agee deciding to take on lead vocal duties) and the stepping down of Matt Hammitt as lead singer of pop/rock band Sanctus Real, this Throwback Tuesdays post, albeit a short one, delves into popular songs by Stellar Kart and Sanctus Real, perhaps some of the most underrated and equally enjoyable artists of today’s generation.

In posts gone past, we have delved into a song or artist from the past, expounding upon a song’s meaning or delved into the artist and provided reason for why this artist has stood the test of time- because frankly, considering that this is first and foremost a site about music, most of the post relate to it, right? Yet this throwback post is different on many levels. In honour of the reboot/sequel Terminator: Genysis that released early July and the Star Wars 7 sequel Star Wars: The Force Awakens that releases later in December 2015, we have decided to discuss a topic that’s certain create discussion amongst all or most of us- 80s movies.

It’s been a while since I have posted blogs on this site (you can view them all here!), and the reason will probably be explained more in depth later (let’s just say that work has been very busy of late!) but I thought that since Good Friday and Easter Sunday is coming up in a few days, that I dig deep into the music library that it my iTunes, to see if I can find a song or two that brings us hope, and reassurance as we praise Jesus for His death and resurrection.

It’s time for another Throwback Tuesdays post, this time, in light of the new Audio Adrenaline 3.0 band (with Adam Agee as lead singer), I will be exploring some Stellar Kart songs and Audio Adrenaline songs).
