Church signs this week on Listening Lyrics

This week Listening Lyrics does a little tongue in cheek. The glue of the show, however, is the music. Songs from The Black Crows, David Simon, The Chamber Brothers, Rosemary Clooney, Jimi Hendrex St. Vincent, Mdou Moctar and many more. A nice set of music will please your ears and settle your stomach.

The Wonder of Stevie: Listening Lyrics, April 23, 2021

Stevland Hardaway Morris (born Judkins; born May 13, 1950), known as Stevie Wonder, is an American singer, songwriter, musician and record producer. A prominent figure in popular music during the second half of the 20th century, Wonder is among the top ranks of successful songwriters and musicians. A virtual one-man band, his use of synthesizers and electronic musical instruments during the 1970s reshaped the conventions of R&B. He also helped drive the genre into the album era, crafting his LPs as cohesive, consistent, socially conscious statements with complex compositions. Wonder, often hailed as a genius, has been credited as a pioneer and influence to musicians of various genres, including rhythm and blues, pop, soul, gospel, funk and jazz.

The music around us in everyday items, on Listening Lyrics

This week Listening Lyrics plays tunes that include everyday nonmusical instruments, like the anvil. We open the show with a song (that you probably know) using an anvil.

Other songs use such items as a lighter, typewriter, chainsaw, elevator shaft, Coke cans, factory sounds, saws and wine glasses.

Listen and enjoy!

What can I say; I LOVED THIS SHOW!

Additionally, I'll let you in on a secret, this was the first time that I listened to, not one, but two complete Rap songs -- and enjoyed them. :)

 

Loved the show and thoroughly enjoyed Cory. Tell him what Michael J Fox once said; "I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business."  He was excellent.

the October 3rd show was way too short. What a mellow and superbly classy hour that just blew by. Thanks!
