Five For Friday

An "Ocassional Series" here at Salguod.net. Inspired by Daniel at Alien Soil, I fire up Media Player on random and post the first 5 songs here.

  1. Adiemus - Adiemus from Songs of Sanctuary
    Even on random, this song is always the first song played when I click 'All Music' in Media Player here at work (at home it's different). I usually skip it, but thought I'd let it play today. I first heard this on WCBE and loved it. Airy vocals and full orchestration, it has an Enya feel about it but also some African vibes, although the composer is British. According to Wikipedia, there is no language, it's just sounds and random syllables. Instead of an album art, enjoy the surreal music video above.
  2. Casting Crowns - Voice of Truth from Casting Crowns
    I love Casting Crowns, even though they've been played and over played. Their lyrics have a Kieth Green quality to them in that they speak to the church, often times in rebuke.
  3. The Fairfield Four - Lonesome Valley from the O Brother Where Art Thou Soundtrack
    Four guys doing a free flowing negro spiritual. If you like A Capella or Negro spirituals, you may enjoy this. If not, it's hard to listen to. I like this it, but other folks usually say "What the heck is that?!?".
  4. File - One Foot in the Bayou from WCBE Mixx on the Fly, Volume 6
    I'm not sure about the artist, but it seems right based on a web search. Great live blues tune recorded here in Columbus at WCBE.
  5. Bob Dylan - Rainy Day Women #12 And #35 from the Forest Gump soundtrack, disc 1
    Two from soundtracks, interesting since I think I only own three soundtracks. I never knew this was the song's title. You may think of it as "Everybody Must Get Stoned". The two disc Gump soundtrack is full of great old 60s adn 70s songs.

Your turn, fire up your MP3 player, put it on random and give me yours in the comments.

Certainly a diverse group of tunes. I actually had a couple of podcasts pop up but I skipped those.

Nice list. I've heard of, but not familiar with Todd Agnew, but I've never heard of RED. Bela Fleck is awesome.

Casting Crowns is my son's favorite group. Good stuff.

I first heard Adiemus at a local live community choral event in Ithaca NY, I loved it, and played it my wedding. Great song!
