Tunes for Tuesday – Dan Auerbach (Goin’ Home)

dan

I found out about this song through a friend awhile ago and I must say that it has been a song that has quickly risen to “fave” status. Everything about it just speaks to me on such a real and deep level. The concept of “home” has been something I have thought about throughout the years as I have moved to another country, moved to another city, but periodically coming back home. What is home? That is the perennial question that I think most of us ask ourselves.

As Christians, we know that this world is not our home…. Our home is somewhere else. Maybe it’s because of all of these ideas swirling in my head as I contemplate the lyrics of this song that has made this song really resonate with me on a personal level. Take a listen and let me know what you think.

Hi everyone,

Welcome to today’s Tunes for Tuesday. My friend Rose (@GraceDefined) introduced me to this video awhile ago and let’s just stay that it is one of those videos that stay stuck in your head for a very long time. I usually don’t like a lot of “Christian” videos and music in general because they tend to, ummm, how do I say this nicely… alienate my soul! Imagine my surprise when I saw a video that was phenomenal! It’s called “Bombs Away” by Jonathan Thulin ft. Rachael Lampa). Click on the video below to watch!

Are there any other Christian music videos that you would recommend? Let me know in the comments section! =)

Hi everyone,

It was really nice to get all the nice comments I received after I posted my original song this January. I guess it has made me bolder in sharing more about my musical journey. So to inaugurate this new section of my blog, here’s a link to a remix of a song I recorded with my fabulous friend, producer, singer and all around diva Renee Robinson. Hope you like it.

Day 4 – The Lenten Journey of Sid

After work today, I went to a family friend’s 50th birthday party. It was a great time of celebration and eating. This was my first Filipino party since my meat fast and I must admit that I was worried. I wasn’t sure if I was able to eat any of the food that they had prepared. Filipino parties usually include lots and lots of meat dishes which I usually enjoy. Usually. Today, I was really worried I was going to go hungry at a party. Thankfully, there were dishes that did not involve meat. Yay!!! Salmon is my best friend! Yummy!

After eating, there were lots and lots of singing. That’s what I love so much about the Filipino culture. Music plays such a huge part of our culture. And everyone can sing along to all the famous tunes. Well almost everyone. I guess it depends on which decade the song belongs to 😉 It was a great evening of fun, food, and fellowship.

Join me on this journey.

 

Wednesday Writings – Jan. 16, 2013

Today’s Wednesday Writings is going to be a little bit different from the past posts. What’s so different about it, you ask? The words that I will be posting is accompanied by music. That’s right. I’m sharing a song that I wrote to you guys. I’ll be posting the lyrics and if you want to listen to it, just scroll down to the bottom. Hope you like it!

I never would have done this if it wasn’t for a special friend of mine who encouraged me to record it. She definitely made me sound way better than I truly am. Thanks Renee! If you would like to listen to her work, click here and listen! You will not be disappointed!

Whisper

Verse 1

Sitting here alone and upset, thinking about the mess of a past that still haunts me

Wondering what I can do, my status is so confused, happy I’ll never be

Why am I so unchanging? It seems I never learn anything that You teach me

Lord I deserve to burn

Chorus:

With a whisper You say You love me

You’ll never let me go

With Your blood You came to free me

My sins are made no more

Verse 2:

The waves are crashing down, my world’s falling apart

I hurt Your heart again

The guilt I feel condemns, it leaves me feeling dead

Wishing my life to end

Why am I so unfaithful? I fall for every trick

Apologies for my actions, I ask You please forgive

Bridge

I’m standing here, eyes full of tears, can’t eat, drink, think, nor sleep

If I’m not with You

I’m utterly destroyed and grieved, in this life find no relief

If ever I lost You

But You know me, feeble and weak, give me the strength that I need

Help me to follow you
