HELP

I need major music mojo.
I used to know what was what in the music world - and I still can hold my own in some areas BUT I couldn't tell you a thing about what is hot and what is not in the Christian Music arena. I need help.

If I were going to download three songs and you got to pick the three, what would they be??

Comment now. . .

Speaking of - A friend of mine once had a tape of Christian music and we never knew who sang the songs, but we loved them! One of the songs words were "he is the man, the maker, the miracle. And he came to walk the path that leads back home. And as I follow Him, The one that knew no sin, I will become like God above . . "
So, does this sound familiar to anyone? I have looked and looked for the lyrics online to find out who it is and I have only hit dead end after another.
Does anyone have any help?

It was hard to choose but these are currently on my playlist and what I am constantly listening to.

1. The Glory of the Cross, by Sovereign Grace Music http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLb-4kwpcDI

2. The Power of the Cross, by Keith and Kristyn Getty http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubGCISQQ7Zo

3. Untitled Hymn (AKA Come to Jesus), by Chris Rice http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_hV8L65Rqo&feature=related

4. I just had to add one more because anything this band, ACT OF CONGRESS, does makes me happy. Adam, the lead singer, is a friend of mine (PCA worship guy at our church in MOODY). The third verse of this song is the best. Click on song #3 on their playlist, Love Comes Free http://www.myspace.com/actofcongress

When I want to get movin' and motivated often the best answer for me is a little dance music. That's how I roll. Here's my recent faves:

Around the Bend by Asteriods Galaxy
Keeps Gettin' Better by Christina Aguilera
Mercy by Duffy (not really dance)

I love this song by Mary Mary - Shackles. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRayKxgePQI. I also love this song but it is sad! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doaHIOXIhH0

This is a good Mercy Me tune too - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbebKBRAIuY

I love Casting Crowns! Who Am I, Praise You In This Storm and others.

I also like Toby Mac - Hip Hop Christian! http://tobymac.zoecity.com/ He has a sampling of his songs on his website. I like Lose My Soul.

This link has a lot of the top Christian songs playing now on the airwaves - http://www.radioandrecords.com/formats/charts/christ_ac_chart.asp

Hope this helps! There are also a lot of mainstream group that have Christian-themed lyrics. U2 has a lot, The Fray, Switchfoot...

@Melissa - I *love* that CD! It's "The Man, The Maker, The Miracle" by Dustin Simpson. Hard to find nowadays, but worth it!
