Seven Songs Meme

I've been tagged again by Elf Girl at A Reflection on the Water.
List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they're listening to.
Again, in no particular order, I will try to list just seven...but I'll probably end up taking EG's example and listing some runners up. :)

A very interesting song that makes me think of Rome...even though the song title is Spanish. LOL!
I heard an interesting version of this song at a hockey game I went to last year. It was instrumental...played on the organ. :P
"I used to rule the world. Seas would rise when I gave the word..."
~*~
Now, I don't recommend that you go and buy the album...most of my readers probably won't favor some of the stuff on there. I don't. But if you can get the edited version of this song like I did, it's a good one. :)
'Cause nobody wants to be the last one there
'Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares
Someone to love with my life in their hands
There's gotta be somebody for me like that
'Cause nobody wants to do it on their own
And everyone wants to know they're not alone
There's somebody else that feels the same somewhere
There's gotta be somebody for me out there
~*~
An emotional song, at least for me. The first time I heard it was on the radio in tribute to a little boy who had died due to a disease (I don't remember what it was).
Don't tell me if I'm dying, 'cause I don't wanna know
If I can't see the sun, maybe I should go
Don't wake me 'cause I'm dreaming of angels on the moon
Where everyone you know never leaves too soon

Hawk Nelson is very good at writing fun songs that make you want to get up and dance!
What else could you expect from a band that titles their album Hawk Nelson Is My Friend? :P
Hey, let me hear you say
Make some noise if you feel this way
Hey, if you've got a friend like that
Hey, let's scream and shout
If you know what I'm talkin' about
Anybody got a friend like that?
~*~
A great song! The band's lead singer says this about it:
"In Lord of the Rings, Gandalf said, ‘At dawn, look to the East’, and that’s the message we’re offering here: even in the most desperate times, each new day provides a glimmer of hope."
Has everything you’ve counted on
Left you right here with no warning?
Have your dreams become invisible?
Wait with me, dear, till the morning
Light will make your night burn out
Hold on, daylight is coming to break the dawn
Daylight is coming
Is hope lost in the black skies?
The darkness must precede the dawn
Hold on till the sunrise
Light will make your night fade out
~*~
For the longest time, I thought that the title of this song was "Extraordinary"...and for the life of me, I couldn't remember who the artist was. Anyway, I finally figured it out and got the album. The whole thing is good!
You know my heart, I want to be where You are
I'm hopeless without You
How'd you teach this heart to love?
Extraordinary, You're bringing me out
You filled my heart with Your love and turned my world around
~*~
At first, this song appears to be sad and gloomy, but if you look at it, it really is uplifting.
I'm falling apart, I'm barely breathing
With a broken heart that's still beating
In the pain there is healing
In your name I find meaning
So I'm holdin' on, I'm barely holdin' on to you
~*~
Now for my runners up :)
Disarray - Lifehouse
Broken Road - 12 Stones
Lie To Me - 12 Stones
After The World - Disciple

Viva La Vida could almost have made my list. I'll have to go look up some of your other ones...

Yay for runners up! :P

LOL, I love that song. :) And I've got about 100 songs that 'could almost have made my list' :P

LOL, if I felt that it wouldn't overwhelm my poor followers, I thought of posting links to lyrics and Amazon MP3...I love posting links to make it easy for people. But there is a point where it can be too much...:P
