Top Five Tuesday — Top Five Songs I Forgot I Liked

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]You’ve probably had this experience: you’re driving down the road and a song comes on either the radio or you iPod and you realize, “Oh, I haven’t heard that song in forever and I forgot how much I like it.”


It’s a song you forgot you liked.


With that in mind, I have assembled a list of five “forgotten” songs suddenly remembered.  Here goes:


1.  Can’t You Hear Me Knockin’? by the Rolling Stones.  With the recent death of Bobby Keys, the Stones’ sax player, I (along with a million other people) realized just how good this song is.

2.  Fool In The Rain by Led Zeppelin.  I never don’t love this song, from the first chord change on.  I once heard it played as the offertory at a Texas church, and if I didn’t already work at Good Shepherd, I would have transferred my membership on the spot.

3.  Believe, The Bravery.  So 2007.  But for me, that’s like yesterday.

4.  Passionate Kisses, Mary Chapin Carpenter.  Really?  Really.  I’m a little bit country.  And if I’m not mistaken, she grew up in Princeton, New Jersey.

5.  Love Sees, Pam Thum. Who is Pam Thum and why is this song on the list?  Well, when I first became aware of contemporary Christian music in the mid-90s, this song was popular on New Life 91.9 (then a new station; now K-Love!).  Anyway, I thought then and think today that this is a truly lovely song, free of irony and full of grace.  Am I the only one who hears echoes of Your Song in this one?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
