God bless you as you seek Him. The greatest song ever is the Song of Songs by Solomon. Also the Psalms are wonderful and bring much healing to anyone who reads them. Do you know any good praise music. There is a couple on the CD.

Joel
(From Joel, Chapter 2)

I'll pour my spirit
On all flesh
Your sons and daughters
Will prophesy
Your old men
Shall dream dreams
And your young men
Shall see visions

I'll pour my spirit
On all flesh
Your sons and daughters
Will prophesy
Your old men
Shall dream dreams
And your young men
Shall see visions

Repeat

Chorus:
Across the ruined fields
Across the mourning land
They will return to me
They will return to me

Repeat verse

Chorus

Music by Daniel Amos, Words by TS Taylor

The other is A Beautiful Martyr.

Do I know of any good Praise music? I do, but first let me define what I think Praise music is. I guess I’m a little picky, but I think Praise music should be just that, PRAISE! When you “praise” your dog for doing something good, you say “yes, you’re a good boy, aren’t you. Yeah, good puppy” you don’t say “I’m a great master, yes I am, yes I am!” When you see teenage girls "worship" Vin Diesel, do they say “I’m so sexy, I’m so good, I have such good taste” No, they “worship” him, and say thing like “He is so sexy. Oh, he is cute.” I guess I’m being  to critical, but many Praise and worship song are songs talking about us, or Satan. This is Gods time, not ours, and not Satan’s. I guess it is the heart that counts, but life and death is in the power of the tongue! Ok, sorry for the rant, it is just that some of the these songs are so self-centered. Maybe you will recall this little ditty from a few years back:

Hey look at me, living life for You
When it's good, when it's hard
You know me, You know my heart
Yea, Yea, Yea, I give up
Anything at all, when You call
All I know it's worth it all

No names, but you know how they are. Come on, he is said to be one of the foremost praise and worship artists! Over 20 first person nouns in this song, not including the repeated lines.  Now, these are some great lyrics “Look at me, I’m so great, I choose God, I’m so good how I stick with God throw it all. God is SO lucky to have me.” It makes me sick to know this song was played on Christian Radio for such a long time, and no one stood up and said, “Woe, time out, that song is find of selfish, don’t you think?”  

Ok, I’d better get off this soap box before I fall off  Grin

I’ll check out that band of you’re ASAP. What kind of Rock are they? lol, so many Genre's now a days!

I like what you said about praise music. I guess A Beautiful Martyr, by that definition, would be the closest thing to praise. I find myself praising God even when i am listening to entertainment music. We really do praise Him in many ways. When I read His word my heart praises Him. When I am on the job I praise Him. I think it is an attitude of the heart. But I do like singing songs that speak to Him. Not to say that our hearts can't praise Him when we sing about Him. I get tired of songs that tell us to praise Him but do not bring us to really praise. Kind of like the old song: "Let's just praise the Lord."

 My Beautiful Martyr

I believe your tears
Are stored away
And like a gentle rain
They will fall some day
On a dusty heart
On some arid soul
All the tears you've cried
Will make them whole

Chorus:
My beautiful martyr (in your crown of thorns)
My beautiful martyr (in your robe of fire)
My beautiful martyr (in your gown of scorn)
So beautiful
My beautiful martyr

I believe your blood
Runs wide and deep
And it stains the sky
And floods the broken street
That your prayers are saved
That your cry is heard
And that the world will hang
On every word

Chorus

I believe we'll meet
Where there are no farewells
Between the spikes that pierced
And the sword that fell

Chorus

What kind of rock? Classic, mainly. They do mix different styles. It's hard to pin down one style on them. I like their sound.

From "Where is the Love" by the Black-Eyed Peas:

CHORUS:

People killin', people dying'
You were hurtin', you were cryin'
Father, Father, Father, help us
With some guidance from above
(forgot lyrics)...
The question is
Where is the love?

Oops!  I'm missing a line of the chorus:

CHORUS:

People killin', people dying'
You were hurtin', you were cryin'
You should practice what you preach
And learn to turn the other cheek
Father, Father, Father, help us
With some guidance from above
(forgot lyrics)...
The question is
Where is the love?

That is a good song. And if it wasn’t for the fact it Features Justin Timberlake, it would be an even better song!
