I’m writing a music review on Rustic Christian Signs, of a CCM album that I may have unknowingly listened to when I was little. The 2000 release, “Genuine“, by Stacie Orrico. And while I’m working on this post, there is seriously so much nostalgia going through my head right now, I thought I’d share it here.
I’m not really a huge fan of a lot of the newer Christian music that’s out there. It seems very commercial and not at all genuine. Although there are a few current artists I like (mostly independent artists), I still find myself returning to the music from the late 90’s- early 2000’s.
Oh my goodness, the memories. I remember starting school, making friends, spending time with the family… and then there are the media-related memories. Memories of when I listened to Kelly Clarkson’s “Breakaway” for the first time, and loved it! (Fun fact: I actually had a copy of the “Breakaway” CD when I was little; then my parents must have sold it at a garage sale or something. Then last summer, I bought the CD again! 🙂 )
Memories of when I was allowed to watch the Disney Channel at a young age. Even though I was just starting school– and barely understood the implicit messages of the shows– I still remember watching TV shows such as Lizzie McGuire, That’s So Raven… and practically every single Disney Channel Original Movie and music video from that time.
And the random PSA’s from the Concerned Children’s Advertisers that still seem to be ingrained into my memory almost 12 years later. Very random. 😛
