Music: May 2005 Archives

Congratulations to Lawton, Oklahoma, pastor and blogger John Owen Butler for getting a mention in a Business Week article on religious podcasting. John's podcast can be found at, and it features recordings of the singing of the Psalms by choirs from around the world.

His latest entry is Psalm 98, set to the tune "Desert," a joyous tune I've also heard used for the hymn "O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing." (The tune is Common Meter, so it could be used for a vast number of hymns.)

We're all winning!

Joel Veitch, creator of the side-splitting Viking Kittens flash animation, has a band called 7 Seconds of Love, and the most recent two animations at his feature two of the band's songs -- "Winners" and "First Drink of the Day." It's great upbeat stuff, and it reminds me a lot of the '80s ska revival band Madness. He's got MP3s for download, too.

Just be aware that not everything on the site is exactly wholesome. Some of the animations are Tourette's Syndrome set to music. But the two I linked above are just fine.

If it makes you feel better, you can pretend that "First Drink of the Day" is about coffee.
