Life with Jesus

So I went walking today at the park and I took my rio mp3 player and in all my self-contemplation, I put into words something that I had known about myself but never been able to express. I don’t have my own music style. I steal/borrow from other people. So I decided to give credit where it is due and list where my strong music influences come from. If I’ve ever listened to music with you, then your name is probably listed:


Steve Queen (junior high youth director): News Boys, Audio A, Jars of Clay, Sonic Flood, dc Talk, Five Iron


Madison Middle School: Backstreet Boys, Hanson, Ace of Bass


Korey: Brave Saint Saturn, John Reuben, Weezer


Rebekah Y: Regina Spekktor


Joe: Cake, Jimmy Eat World, Weird Al


Shane H: Derek Webb


Andy H: Moulin Rouge


Joe/Ryan: Kelly Clarkson


Ryan: Toby Mac


Chris B.: Dave Matthews


Steele: Copeland, Death Cab, Radiohead, The Decemberists, The Shins, Cool Hand Luke, Kings of Convenience, Pedro the Lion, Sufjan


K Sweat: Shawn McDonald, Mae


Josh: MuteMath


A Hog: Jack Johnson


Leah: Paul Wright, Five for Fighting


Elizabeth: The Afters


Aubrey: Dashboard


B-Rooke: Frou Frou, Michael Jackson, Sixpence


Rebekah W: Michael Buble


Thank you, my friends, for broadening my horizons and making me a cooler person in general.
