A Song Posting

Obviously, anyone who has read this blog for some period of time knows that the music I'm usually most interested in, lyrically-speaking, is music that chronicles the human journey but often incorporates the spiritual (Christian) aspect. I don't listen to the radio that much, so I'm usually late coming across songs, and such is the case here - so you've probably heard the song. Nonetheless, I heard Carolina Liar's Show Me What I'm Looking For for the FIRST TIME last night, and I immediately thought I'd post it on the blog.

For me, the message is pretty simple. I'm all mixed up and messed up. I need the Lord. Don't know if that's the songwriter's (songwriters'?) message per se, but that's what I derived from it. And in general, that pretty much sums it up for me on my own human journey.

Hope you enjoy!

Nice song. Kind of reminds me of five for fighting.

I've never heard of this band.

God Bless

The lead singer is, I believe, originally from Charleston, SC, where he was brought up in a strict Pentecostal faith. The five other guys in the band are all from Sweden - and there's an interesting story behind that.

A little Googling can tell you a lot!
