I need some help with some Christian music recommendations.
First, a little history. I grew up in your typical youth group. It was taught that to be a good Christian, you had to listen to Christian music and not watch rated R movies. I grew up listening to the likes of Michael W. Smith and Phillips, Craig & Dean. I hated almost every minute of it. I really don’t listen to much of what you would call “proper” Christian music now.
Here’s what I enjoy now: (And I’m looking for recommendations, not for you to mock my musical choices, because I know that will be your first inclination.)
Snow Patrol, Coldplay, Damien Rice, Five for Fighting, James Blunt (I know, shut up), The Slip, Dave Matthews Band, The Goo Goo Dolls, Lifehouse, The Shins, Iron & Wine, Death Cab for Cutie, Jack Johnson, and Imogen Heap.
Now, can you recommend some Christian music similar in style to these?
And yes, I know my musical tastes are all over the board. You should see my movie tastes in my DVD collection. You’ve got Anchorman sitting near Lawrence of Arabia.
