Do You Hear What I Hear? (Elevator Musik and more)

So many songs out there, flying thru the air waves to the point where we find ourselves with some tune or lyrics caught in our heads…

Singing: “I’m stuck on ‘bandaide brand’ cause ‘bandaides’ stuck on me.”

We subconsciously hear things, picking up what has been put into a clever jingle.

I stopped to think abour what is going into our ears & sticking in our minds?

This took me back to some old songs that talk about this and offer a solution…here are a few…

Rez Band (Resurrection Band) with Elevator Musik:

“Just What I Need” by Prodical:

I remember Barry Manilow talking about how he got his break into music by writing commercial jingles. I wish I had a video clip of him doing those live. You’d be amazed by all that he wrote. Those short 8 to 16 measures (30 seconds or so) ditties that call out the name of some product that claims to make the world a better place. I’ve found my self smiling as I break out into a song, ‘I like to buy the world a ‘Coke’ and keep it company!’  When ever I hear the original tune to that I regress back to the clever Coke commercial…

Here is what I’m mean for those who don’t remember or missed out on growing up in the same generation: 



We have great musicians and music in this world and music is probably one of the most powerful tools for learning, selling & celebrating things.

Music. It’s up to us what to do with it.

Barry Manilow song “I Write The Songs”:

Music. Given as a gift. What do we do with it? What do we say in our songs?

I’ve been going back to Music that helped me through my teen years, to consider what I really need, what I want to focus on and what I want to join in saying.

“What you need” by Joe English (The English Band):

“Don’t Stop The Music” by DeGarmo & Key (The D&K Band):

What ever season you are in may music add to your life not take away.

What this world needs Is music that feeds, Not elevator musik” -Rez Band


We are not slaves to others advice. Daily seek the truth & fill your mind & heart with the good things God has for us. Read the book, don’t wait for the movie.

Tonight i’m publishing a post along the same lines’ “I Heard The Bells”.
