Gungor – I Am Mountain


Pentatonix – Aha! (Imogen Heap Cover)

Pentatonix has been going through my head constantly today…

I’ve been meaning to get back to writing normal posts to for the past couple of weeks, but I’m still working on two or three posts from before I even left school. Hopefully I can get on top of those this weekend. Coming soon (I hope): Reflections on Finals, My First Real Job, and My Take on Homosexuality.

Enya – The Celts

Music for driving on a rainy day? Then again, so is Imagine Dragons and David Guetta.

Bryan Pringle – Take a Dive

If it sounds like the Black-Eyed Peas to you, that’s because it does. Pringle apparently wrote and recorded the song in 1999, before the pop hit, and then sued (but lost the claim) for copyright infringement. I actually like this song better, and completely agree that the Black-Eyed Peas may have stolen the characteristic synthetic chord progression from it.

Jars of Clay – After the Fight

One of my favorite things about being home is being able to listen to CDs on our stereo system downstairs. The CD that I’ve been listening to a bit is Jars of Clay’s Inland.

Eric Whitacre – When David Heard (Performed by Eric Whitacre and the Eric Whitacre Singers)

I mentioned this in a Devotion post from a while ago, and listened to it in the car on the way to church Sunday morning. I really like the piece, and thought that mom might too, considering how she likes Fly to Paradise. She did not, saying that it wasn’t uplifting at all. To which we all responded “well, no, it’s not exactly supposed to be.”

Eric Whitacre & Glen Rhodes – Fly to Paradise (Glen Rhode’s Epic Symphonic Cinema Mix)

My siblings and I got mom hooked on the original Eric Whitacre piece, so we’ve been listening to it fairly regularly since we got it on our iPods. This is one of my favorite remixes of it.
