Four Seasons #BOTB showdown

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Far Away Series is the brain child behind today’s little meme I happily am apart of and with a little help from STMcCP  (details on site) together they put together a bi-monthly hop that we know as the…..

The change in seasons will soon be upon us. With the change from summer to fall, one song comes to mind above all others… Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.

I developed an appreciation for classical music when I was pregnant eons ago, but my heart really belongs to rock n’ roll. So, that being said, let’s have a little fun.

Classical music is beautifully relaxing, but I wanted a contemporary sound for this showdown, so I found two known artists to do just that!

The first contenders started in a piano shop in southern Utah to market pianos in an unconventional way. Do you care to guess the name of the shop? Why, its called The Piano Guys.

The Piano Guys music videos are incredibly captivating, so if you’re a person who’s easily swayed by what you see and not what you hear, then I first invite you to listen with your eyes closed. This will put things on even ground with their competitor. Listen to their meshed classical version mixed with the Bourne movie theme music.

 

The next contender video isn’t dramatic like the first. This is why I ask that you shut your eyes, but without the theatrics of The Piano Guys, this artist has set the standards in the classics and crossover scene, since 2007. Let’s give it for David Garrett!

 

 

Both bands totally blow my mind! I’m not sure how I’m going to go on this one. Who gets your vote? Name your band of choice in comments and tell us why you like your choice the best in comments. There is no wrong way to vote, except a no vote. Did you pick The Piano Guys or David Garrett? The decision is all yours!

Alrighty, the fun isn’t over. I invite you to check out more amazing battles taking place right now!

Saturday Song-suasion: #Building429

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Good-morn, kittens & dawgs! The weekend is here. What craziness do you have going on? Hopefully, you have your Christmas shopping completed and you’re able to unwind a bit before the big day. It’s fast approaching us, isn’t it?

However, if you’re like me, then you’re more than ready to do a little relaxing when Saturday arrives and there’s no better way to do that than with music. Please allow me the privilege to introduce to you a new Christian rock band I heard for the first time this week. Now…usually traditional Christmas songs done rock style doesn’t do much for me, but this season I find I’m digging it. That being said, allow me to share with you Building 429 in We Three Kings.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a Christmas album. I love having a long music video for you to select the “play all” feature so you can then go about your web surfing or house chores, but my search yielded only one other song and it happens to be one of my favorites, What Child Is This.

No sooner, did I say “only one other song”  by today’s featured artist when this brand new Christmas track popped up and it is the title song in Kirk Cameron’s newest movie, Saving Christmas. Yeah, I didn’t know about this movie either but now that I do, I’d like to see it.  Anywho, back to the song. Here’s Building 429 singing Saving Christmas.

Have you heard of this group before now? Aren’t they awesome? They really rock CHRISTmas! Did you know Jesus is a rock star? Yep, it’s true. He’s the rock of my salvation, the firm foundation my faith built upon and He can be your rock star, too.

As always it’s a joy to share new or old musical talent with you guys. Maybe, you’ll want to share Building 429 with your friends. Go ahead…hit the share button (at the bottom),  you know you wanna. 😉 lol Before I skip out of here today, I want to invite you to learn more about Building 429. They totally jam for the Lord! Thank you for making me a part of your weekend and have a songsational day! 😉
