Dear Friend,

I know that time is precious for everyone these days, so I’ll try to keep this update short. The approximate reading time for this message is about 5 minutes. Feel free to reduce your reading time even more by skipping over topics that don’t interest you.

Personal Update. My Personal Update for May is now available.

Heart Songs. The Heart Songs selections for May 2011 are now available on iTunes. Using iTunes you can listen to 1 minute and 30 second samples of these songs. Many of this month’s songs I discovered using Sound Hound app on my iPhone to learn more about the songs I’m hearing on the radio or in stores. Here’s a brief overview about this month’s selections.

  • There are two old songs from Peter Frampton, who at 61 years young is recently on tour performing with his 22-year-old son.
  • Some pop songs I recently discovered are: DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love by Usher, On the Floor by Jennifer Lopez (an amazing song that blends dance rhythms with techno trance), Stereo Love by Edward Maya & Vika Jigulina (an amazing techno dance song with trance-like vocals), and Qui Est Cette Fille by Yelle.
  • The song Fireflies, was popularized by Mike Tompkins in a YouTube video using sound effects entirely produced with vocals and water glasses.
  • Irish Settlers by Craig Austin is an amazing acoustic guitar composition that is uplifting and inspiring.
  • Kissing by Bliss is a world music fusion song that lifts you up and floats you in the clouds.
  • Also this month are some excellent contemporary praise and worship songs that have very good instrumental and vocal elements, including Healing Begins and Hold My Heart by Tenth Avenue North, I Am by Mark Schultz, I Need You by LeAnn Rimes, I Will Rise by Chris Tomlin, There Will Be a Day by Jeremy Camp, and You Are More by Tenth Avenue North.
