Worship Energy

I’m looking through you… you’re not the same!

One of my favourite parts of Beatles music (or “of The Beatles music”—whichever is correct, or incorrect, just to be rebellious) is the high-energy, driving portion of the song that starts during the word “same”. One of my favourite parts of Marianas Trench music is a similar part in Masterpiece Theatre III, about 2:30 into the song… after a gruelling 15 minutes or so of unique, but not exactly awesome music in Masterpieces I and II and the beginning of III. One of my favourite parts (perhaps very favourite) of Muse music is a similar part which begins the second section of Knights of Cydonia. One of my favourite parts of Kings of Leon music is a similar part in Black Thumbnail when the chorus blasts in after a relatively simple verse (not that the chorus is complex). And the list goes on and on.

I suddenly came to realize that pattern of some of my favourite moments in music just a short while ago. Numerous bands that I’m not very fond of in general get shot much higher on my internal categorization of best to worse when moments like those. I like the energy in those moments. It makes me think of being at a concert when the band starts getting crazy and everyone starts jumping and dancing.

Worship at church used to be like that… at least where I grew up.

I don’t know what happened,

but I hope it comes back.

Alrighty then, until we meet again, have a better than average day.
