This is primarily for qmark and the believers, but, the song is great no matter who you are.

Qmark, I know this music isn't your style. There is a long 3 minute (no singing) "warm up period" to set the tone and have you meditating.

But please, play this... and sing these words to Jesus. This actually isn't meant to be a Christian song, but it's perfect for one.

This song will take you home. Give it an honest try and listen to these words. Do it with headphones... for Pete's sake don't kill it with laptop speakers on low volume!

Sandra, Inja, and at1with0 would like this too I think.

If I ran a church, THIS is the kind of music I would play during Communion. ❗

BTW qmark, the one verse I had so much trouble with in singing this to Jesus is when she says "You're so ugly and you're so beautiful" but it can still work, as we just discussed in the other thread about how ugly Jesus looked after being flogged, beaten, and then taking on all our sins.

Please provide feedback, I'll be totally embarassed and discouraged if this song flops and no one gives it a shot.

Well I didn't kill it with low volume. Turned it up loud as it could go.
Now why wouldn't that be meant as a Christian Song. You are a
Christian. And the song was lovely. I sang it also.
But the music was at a decent noise level which was good for that. hehe
Thanks for sharing it, I'm sure I'll listen to it again.

First, let me say that I absolutely loved the intro. If there were no singing at all in this song it would sound like something from Tangerine Dream that I once had. Let me also say I enjoyed the song as well. I would go to your church if that was the type of music you played. I don't know what kind of music your church does plays, but the music that my church plays (although I haven't been in awhile) sometimes seems like nothing more than a repeated mantra, which bothers me a little. I would much rather listen to this, or the old fashioned hymns, as opposed to some of the stuff that is out there today.

There was one verse that caught my attention which was not the one you mentioned.
"Take me home, in time you'll love me like one of your own"
In time? I'm not sure how that verse fits. But I love the song nonetheless.

Let's talk about the picture for a minute. Take a close look. What do you see?

I'm shocked to hear that you would enjoy that kind of music during communion. Most Christians would be terrified, I think. My dream is to run the music program at a church that is willing to go there, but, I don't think that dream is realistic.

Believe it or not, I haven't been to church since I moved to Texas. My wife is Mexican Catholic and doesn't speak the best of English so that throws some wrenches into the program as well. I had some of my best times back in Indiana during Bible study on Sunday nights. I miss that.

Anyway I am so pleasantly surprised that you liked the song, etc.

Oh yeah. There IS that verse as well. Not much I can do with that one, is there. 😕

I'm terrible at these kind of things. I could stare at that picture for 3 hours and not see something that is blatantly and instantly obvious to the casual observer. Anyway, all I can see is a cross imprint on the ground.

Well good for you, turning it up! It's not easy to keep up loud with that heavy bass, but it's worth it if you can!

I'm really glad you liked it. I am (obviously) quite obsessed about music, so I will probably add to this thread one day but y'all will just have to tell me to shut up when you get sick of it.

Well this seems like a lucky number of a thread.
Might get pretty jammin in here.
Now that qmark mentioned it, I can't remember what was
in the video that stood out more so. I'll
have to go back and look.

I just think the picture has a fair amount of symbolism. When I looked at the picture while listening to "take me home" I see a golden field which reminds me of a field of wheat, a symbol of Christians, with the SON rising, and because of the cross covering the wheat, we are ready for the harvest and to be taken home. Or, maybe I'm reading to much into it.

The song reminded me of those tv commercials for animal shleters.
You know like adopt a pet.
Not very religious..yet..sorta

yah know, d-o-g -> G-o-d

the field of wheat made me think of seperating the wheat from the chaff

I say , as far as Christian religious songs in praise of God...nothing beats the classic,
"Everywhere I go"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....6SMDrGlORc
this song always moved me and has actually sorta sent me into a state of religious extacy (or something close to it) before

this version actually edited out my favorite part..
"I have seen you in the evening
In the morining light you hold me
Closer than the air around me
You surround me always"

can't find the full version on you tube..a clear sounding one, at least

Willie Wonka quotes..
What is this Wonka, some kind of funhouse?
Why? Are you having fun?
A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.

Good song, bionic. I had never heard that one before. 🙂

If you like Johnny Cash, you want to listen to "Goin By The Book"

and that grumblin in the desert
like thunder getting closer
are the trumpets getting ready to blow
there's going to be a shout that will wake the dead
we better be ready to go

Song with updated pictures:

Original video:

One of my favorites.
