    Just reposting this thread, because the old one broke. I'm told threads here sometimes do that after so many pages. I guess I'll be locking the old one so no one posts there only to not be able to see their posts, then.

    So, yeah.

    I think it sometimes happens when a video clip is copied over and over again, that the system eventually finds the sheer amount of repeated info. hard to keep reproducing.

    So sounds like a good idea to start a fresh thread!

    Blessings.

    Possibly.


    Currently listening to the song Open Your Heart by Crush40, from the game Sonic Adventure. (Anyone here remember that game? xD) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEzXFuYN89k

    Most of the songs and bands I listen to are at least Christian based, but this is one of the secular artists I enjoy. Plus, I'm a Sonic fan, so I like a lot of the themes from the games.

    Okay! :)

    I figured it was a Christian song about 2/3 of the way through!

    Blessings.

    The Hallelujah from Andrea Bocelli's DVD Sacred Arias.

    [video=youtube;M5AScLyy3IM]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5AScLyy3IM[/video]

    This is the most magnificient soul stirring rendition of Handel's Hallelujah
    I have ever heard, it will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck /smile.

    The conductor, the choir, and the orchestra all come together to create something quite beautiful here.

    Here is the link, just in case the video does not embed for some reason.

    The conductor is Myung-Whun Chung.

    Cheers.

    Other sites get around this issue by limiting the number of posts within a specific thread. Some will limit it to 1000 comments, then a new thread is generated to keep the conversation going.

    Maybe we could consider doing that here, hey [MENTION=8274]Nick[/MENTION] or [MENTION=24785]Mike[/MENTION]?

    I think it's a good idea to limit threads to a certain post count, then a second part is created. We've had a few threads in the mod forum break because they've had a few thousand replies in them, but again we've got the mod actions thread, with 8,000 replies and it hasn't broke, yet. Touch wood :lol

    I'll look into seeing if we can get the system to do this automatically.

    Outlaws, by Disciple

    Wasn't quite sure of the meaning behind this song at first, but then I looked up the verse reference given. Ad then it made perfect sense.
    "12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. 13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."~Matthew 9:12-13

    Great track, with good quality hard rock. The lyrics are intriguing; I kind of associated them in my mind with the idea that the world tries to mold the individual into its image; does this make sense to you?

    Kind of that the world is trying constantly to manipulate people into doing things for the world's convenience, and not for the individual's spirtual benefit, and can be deceptive about its plans and in its promises; the lines about sitting in a chair and expecting a particular tattoo design but landing up with another kind of expresses it aptly.

    I like Disciple; it's so Biblical in its content, and also is really good hard rock.

    Blessings.

    Very good; yes. I can see how the supplied Scripture references tie in; do you happen to know if the Scripture references have been supplied by Disciple or by whoever edited the video?

    You know, this one would almost be soft rock, apart from the percussion, maybe.

    Blessings.

    Don't know. The comments on the video make it sound like they were provided by Disciple. But I'd have to own a physical copy of one of their CDs complete with a list of the lyrics to know for sure.

    Okay, ty.

    Anyway, the style of this track does seem kind of more soft rock compared with, say. Disciple's Battle Lines, doesn't it?

    Blessings.
