Music Video Monday

Before I begin my usual edition of Music Video Monday I want to give a Night Beat Shout Out to some good friends of mine. I've known John and Maicie Cherry since college and my days at WENC. They are part of a band by the name of Slateface. You can hear their single In The Light on their homepage, check out their entire EP on Myspace or like them on Facebook. They are hard but melodic rockers. Check them out, you won't be disappointed.

Now, on to Music Video Monday. Making my way through the genres, we skip past Gospel, only because there doesn't seem to be much in the way of music videos, just maybe a live appearance at a church or something like that.

The King of Alternative right now is Switchfoot, and rightfully so, with Vice Verses such a hit. We'll start of our Video Journey with the video for Dark Horses.

We will continue with one of CCM's rising new stars, Hyland, out of Minneapolis. This is the official Video for Jumping the Gun.

Showbread is next. This is "You're Like a Taxi" from Who Can Know it.

We began with the Current Kings, we end with one of the progenitors of Christian Alternative. The Choir started way back in 1985 as Youth Choir with Voices and Shadows. Derri Daugherty and Steve Hindalong not only revolutionized rock, but also Modern Worship, as they also wrote God of Wonders (Hindalong along with Marc Byrd)This is an acoustic version of Black Cloud which was from Diamonds and Rain, which in 1986 was the Debut of The Choir, though the lineup was the same as Youth Choir..

That concludes this edition of Music Video Monday. We will return next Monday with more videos. Until next time I am Awaiting Your Reply.
