I came across this music video a long time ago, back in 2013 or 2014 maybe. I remember getting teary eyed at reading the fan letters in the music video. Anyway, I was still an avid Facebook user then. I shared it on Facebook and that was it, I just forgot about it. Not even sure it garnered a Like on Facebook. It disappeared into the feed, never to be seen again.
And so imagine my delight when I rediscovered it a few weeks ago. I found it while going through my music log posts, trying to replace the Spotify embeds with YouTube music videos. I discovered that the music video has the same effect on me now, as it did then. It's a beautiful song, one where I feel like God is talking to me. And the music video shows how much comfort and peace it brought to other people.
I already shared this song in a previous music log, but I feel like it deserves to be shared again. Hopefully, this time around, it will reach a lot more people and not simply fade away into an algorithmic feed.
To anyone who needs to hear this message today, know that you are not alone. Look up and see, love has a face. ♪ ♫ ♪
It's been almost a month since my last music log. Some significant things have happened that prevented me from having enough free time to write down music logs on Fridays. Anyway, it is Friday, I have a bit of time after an exhausting session of running into one bug after another, none of which are caused by the code changes I'm trying to test.
Anyway the two songs I have lined up today are inspirational and uplifting songs. How much of a coincidence is it, that these are the songs that are next in my list to share in a music log entry, all while the world is going through a global pandemic?
First up is the song “Brave” by Skillet. I love, love, love the lyrics on this song. This song goes out to everyone on the front lines fighting to keep this virus from overwhelming the world.
Wherever I will go
Wherever you will lead
I'll never walk alone
Your spirit is with me
oh oh oh oh oh
You're with me as I go
So I will not be afraid
You call me to be brave
In you, in you
In you, you call me to be brave
It is a rainy Friday in Texas, time for another music log.
The first song for today is “What Would Love Do?” by Scott Stapp. If you don't know who Scott Stapp is, he was the vocalist for the rock band Creed, which was one of my favorite bands back in high school. I don't remember why they've disbanded, but the rest of the band members are still making music in another rock band, Alter Bridge.
Anyway back to the song, this is a beautiful song about the power of love. Not the cheesy corny kind, but the kind of love that stops you from giving in to your rage. I really love the lyrics on this song.
Go ahead and throw it in my face
Remind me of each of my mistakes
Turn on me tell me I'm wrong that it's all my fault
I feel I'm losing control
Putting my fists through the wall
This is the place that I break I can't take anymore
I see the fear in your eyes
I'm frozen standing still in time
What would love do?
If it were here in this room, standing between me and you.
What would love do?
It would look in my face and stop me from hurting you.
That's what love would do
