Just discovered these videos on YouTube. Robbase1969 has created eight videos that include clips of songs for each year from 1979 to 1986, much longer than those I put on my decade-long Timesweep. They are fantastic surveys of the music being played on CCM stations in the early 1980s, and well worth a listen. I have created a playlist of all of them:

Here is the Medley for 1984:

Check them out, and if you like them, leave Robbase1969 a “like” and a positive comment.

Some years ago, a friend of the web site sent me recordings of the KYMS 1984 top 50 countdown show (actually the top 28 were all that were included in his recordings). These were great, and I’ve finally put them into a “scoped” version (the start and end of the songs are the only part of the music included), and uploaded them to YouTube to share. Host Jim Hodson’s comments are a fascinating look into the world of CCM in late 1984. Enjoy!

I recently found this song from 2005 in my music collection, and on playing it was absolutely caught up in how amazing it is. It brought me back to one of the large Easter services that my church held years ago when I got to be in the worship choir. It was meaningful to me then, and still is today!

When I discovered this song again and started playing it, I could not stop. I had to put it on repeat and play it again and again and again. There are many Easter songs in the history of the Church, and all are important, but this particular one is to me one of the very best!

On this Easter Sunday 2017, rejoice in the certainty that Jesus rose from the dead, and that His life opened the way for us to have life also, both now and eternally!

(Celebrate! He’s alive!)

Let the children sing
A song of liberation
The God of our salvation
Set us free
Death, where is thy sting?
The curse of sin is broken
The empty tomb stands open,
Come and see!

He’s alive, alive, alive, Hallelujah!
Alive! Praise and glory to the Lamb.
Alive, alive, alive, Hallelujah!
Alive! Forever, Amen!

Let my heart sing out,
For Christ, the One and only
So powerful and holy
Rescued me
Death won’t hurt me now
Because He has redeemed me
No grave will ever keep me
From my King

I’m alive, alive, alive, allelujah!
Alive! Praise and glory to the Lamb!
I’m alive, alive, alive, hallelujah!
Alive! Forever, Amen

I’m alive, alive, alive, allelujah!
Alive! Praise and glory to the Lamb!
I’m alive, alive, alive, hallelujah!
Alive! Forever, Amen

Worthy is the Lamb, worthy of our praise
Worthy is the One who has overcome the grave
Let the people dance, let the people sing
Worthy is the mighty King!

Worthy is the Lamb, worthy of our praise
Worthy is the One who has overcome the grave

(Come on, celebrate!)
