A new band I like!!
Well, they’re new to me.
They’re called the Robbie Seay Band, and no, I have no idea how to pronounce Robbie’s last name. I hate MySpace, but the band has, of course, a MySpace site, which does have the redemptive feature of free, full-length songs on it.
It’s funny: A couple of months ago, I heard a song that not only I liked, but I knew would work really well for worship at church. After 13 years of being married to a worship leader, my song-evaluating has shifted a bit. I used to just think, “I LOVE this song! We should do it at church!” And I couldn’t understand why Martin almost never did the songs I suggested. I’ve finally learned that it has to do with corporateness. Meaning, it has to be something that the whole congregation can grab onto, both lyrically and melodically. And hopefully, is speaking directly to God, a la classic Vineyard worship. When I heard the song, not only did I like it, but I knew it was “corporate.” But, I could barely remember even a snippet of lyric, and I never ended up Googling them or anything.
So… my hubby was out somewhere, and listening, apparently, to Christian radio (which, since The Effect went off the airwaves here in Phx, we almost never do), and he called me on his mobile, “Have you ever heard this song: ‘la-la-la-la God of heaven come down’?? It’s a GREAT song, and it would be so perfect as a worship song!!” Well, whaddya think? It was the song that I’d been sort of telling him about for the last couple of months.
So, I’ll bet, come January, the team will be learning it. 😀
We found the chord chart online. Even better!
Anyways. I like all the songs I’ve heard by them (which is just this evening, looking them up). Robbie sounds like a cross between Bryan Adams and David Crowder. The music is mostly guitar-driven, with a bit of electronica, not really poppy, but not really “alternative.”
