Glooorious

So Martha Munizzi was a guest worship leader at the church I visited in Brooklyn (Christian Cultural Center) last weekend, and she performed this song that I heard for the first time, and I haven’t been able to stop listening to it since! Just can’t help but want to dance & groove along with this piece that I think is amazing both musically and lyrically (Lyrics below the video) – The music essentially makes you want to do what the lyrics are saying! ๐Ÿ™‚ That background harmony that comes in around 2:52 is especially killer to me…Enjoy!!

Glorious Lyrics

[Verse:]
When you come into His presence,
lifting up the name of Jesus
and you hear the music playin’
and you see the people praising;
just forget about your worries,
let your troubles fall behind you,
don’t you wait another minute,
just get up and on your feet and…

[Chorus 1:]
Get to dancing, singing, jumping, leaping,
get to shouting, make it loud, and make it glorious.
Start rejoicing, praising, lifting, raising,
get to shouting, make it loud,
and make His praise glorious, glorious.

[Verse]

[Chorus 2:]
Get to dancing, singing, jumping, leaping,
get to shouting, make it loud, and make it glorious.
Start rejoicing, praising, lifting, raising,
get to shouting, make it loud,
and make His praise…

Get to dancing, singing, jumping, leaping,
get to shouting, make it loud, and make it glorious.
Start rejoicing, praising, lifting, raising,
get to shouting, make it loud,
and make His praise glorious, glorious.

[Vamp:]
I was created to make Your praise glorious.
I was created to make Your praise glorious,ย glorious,
Yes, I was, yes, I was.

[Ending:]
I was created to make Your praise glorious.

New Discoveries: September 2012

Hola my peeps,

Here are my favorite songs that I’ve first heard this month (admittedly late on some of them). Full Spotify playlist below & YouTube links for those who don’t have Spotify ๐Ÿ™‚

Simply Smooth (R&B)

  • Enough of No Love” – Keyshia Cole & Weezy (this sounds like it belongs back in 2006 – 2007 for some reason…maybe I like it b/c it sounds so familiar to me…)
  • Black Gold” – Esperanza Spalding & Algebra Blessett (great video!)

Dance Dance!

  • Pantera” – Kartell (probably my favorite on this list because of what happens at 0:30-0:31…keep listening if you don’t catch it ๐Ÿ™‚ )
  • In & Out” – Marcus Canty f/Wale (took a while for this one to grow on me but I really like the hook & I love my X Factor favorite!)

PRAISE

It’s Countray

  • Storm Warning” – Hunter Hayes (I’m hoping to do a full post on this guy…love his music!)

MJ Bad 25:

Ok, so I thought this deserved a section on it’s own. Epic, Legacy & MJJ Productions re-released Michael Jackson’s “Bad” album this month on its 25th anniversary. It includes remastered versions of his old well-known hits, but also quite a few songs that I had never heard before (which I thiink is saying a lot because I like to think I’m a pretty huge & knowledgeable MJ fan!) Anyway, my favorites from that 25th Anniversary album are below:

  • Price of Fame” (previously unreleased)
  • Streetwalker” (ok, so there’s basically NO excuse for me not to have heard this before. Without a doubt my favorite!! And so good to finally know where the beginning of “The Way You Make Me Feel” live comes from! at least I think so…lol)
  • Fly Away” (also not really sure why I hadn’t heard this before…but really pretty I think!)
  • Bad” – Remix by Afrojack f/Pitbull (surprised I actually like this version but I think I could dance to it in the club!)

Annd lastly as an extra side bonus (completely unrelated to this post) while we’re on the subject of MJ 25th Anniversary albums, this is probably my FAVORITE MJ remix of all time, off his Thriller 25 Album. Enjoy & until next time! ๐Ÿ™‚

So Wonderfully Inspiring

I really just can’t get over this song right now. I’ve basically been playing it on repeat since this weekend when it was posted on Facebook in response to the Stanford Class of 2012’s graduation (CONGRATULATIONS to my little freshmen from my Senior Year in ’09!!). It’s so beautifully inspiring! I am clearly VERY late to the Kurt Carr train & need to jump on!!

Jeremy Passion

This is the kind of music that I feel like I have to share with the world as soon as I hear it. I was hooked by the first few seconds of his first song that I heard (Greater is He) & I have to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this guy. I’m totally enjoying his unique blend of pop, R&B, gospel, & jazzy instrumentals, & I’m very impressed by the AMAZING production quality that accompanies the such positive messaging that comes through his music. For example, “Well Done” is an important reminder to cherish & make time to spend with those we love in life.

His talent shines through his music so brightly that it’s clear he has a gift for music – but most of all I can tell that he’s a really talented musician, as evidenced by all of the piano & guitar that he features in his songs. I see influences of a lot of different artists in his music, including John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Robin Thicke, BBMack, & perhaps a hint of Michael Buble? And more Bay Area pride because he’s based in SF! Take a listen to his 2 albums, “For More Than a Feeling” & “Pixelated – EP” below (fav songs: Greater Is He, Trace, This Ain’t The Way, Undefined, Lemonade, Pixelated, Paper Airplane)…
