"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Helaman 5:12

Life(stops) Music

My favorite song is on the radio and nobody better say anything, do anything--except perhaps to sing along. Some of these songs are critical to breathing.

My taste in music is very eclectic. It spans three decades consisting of such genres as country, pop, classic rock, contemporary rock and Christian. It runs the gamut from Alabama, Amy Grant and Backstreet Boys to Roxette and Bon Jovi.

As with any music the words by themselves do not make the song. Often it is the music itself that draws me into a particular song. Bruce Hornsby, for instance, has an incredible piano sound. Bryan Adams improved upon a very good song, Heaven, by redoing it unplugged. Celine Dion and Peter Cetera have voices that are very distinct and could make just about any song at hit. And some songs just have a very good message in them and it does not matter who sings it. True Colors, which was originally done by Cyndi Lauper, sounds just as good done by Phil Collins. At the same time there are those songs that are Lifestops for no apparent reason other than they are just good songs.

I have not stopped adding to my favorite songs list. Just recently I have discovered Michael Buble...sigh! His new hits "Home" and "Save the Last Dance for Me" are definite residence of my list.

I have compiled this list with the lyrics on my website.

What do you think makes a great song? What are your favorites?

to me a great song is one that connects the emotions of the listener with the emotions of the singer. for example on of my favorite songs is "I don't want to be your friend" by Nina
I don't really feel that way about anybody but yet I can feel the emotion behind the song. Sometimes I will listen to a song that I've heard a million times when suddenly something clicks and I think that is a great song like "Jealousy" by Gin Blossoms.

hey, bro...connections are a good part of it. The emotion of the song is what draws you into it...if you identify with that emotion.

Wow, Kelly. That is quite a collection. I am and have been a musician for many years, and my tastes have gotten more and more eclectic over the years. I have a site for you, if you have the ability to stream music, you should try If you can stream music, let me know and I will "send" you one of the radio stations that I helped to design.

That gets you into pandora and how it works a lot faster.

Nice web-site, by the way!

I forgot that I had an account with pandora. Now I am adding to my station.

I would like to hear the station you put together.

Well, to do that I have to be forward, then, and ask you email address.

Or, rather than that, email me your address at or go over to sciolist and leave it there.

You said that you are a musician. What instrument do you play?

I have played electric Bass and accoustic guitar for many years. These last two years, though, I have been learning to play upright Bass more than anything else.

I can see the influence playing the accoustic guitar has on your choice of music.

My Dad plays the accustic guitar and his taste in music is very similar to some respects.
