You reached to this point of my signature. The bottom actually. Bubba isn't doing his job very well *whispers* he's a slacker.

There are only 2 signs before our savior returns. First, the gospel will be translated in all languages and received to all world tribes to hear the word. The second sign is all of the nations will turn against Israel and plan to destroy the Jews once and for all. As the armies arrive, Jesus will emerge as pure and fight all the armies all against one. There begins the rapture to break down the old world, then form a new one.

Today the bible has been translated to 98% of all languages, and now Obama wishes to plan offences against Israel.

Jesus is coming back this century

Pretty but...Odd Logic

lol, sick of Christmas music? If you listen to a wide enough repetiore of Christmas music, I can't imagine being sick of them! My Christmas playlist is nearly 400 songs strong, with no repeats on songs! ^_^ But that's just me. Though radios always play the same stuff over and over despite this... *sigh* I can get why people get tired of those songs in particular.

 

This video is really cool! But I have to wonder about his logic. Some of these songs were pop songs, not hymns or folk songs. So...pop songs are Christmas carols? Okay, you can make an argument for that, I guess, though I usually think of folk music and hymns. Maybe he just meant Christmas songs in general. But he claims most Christmas carols are in major keys? I guess the majority of them are, but there are plenty of carols already in minor keys. Off the top of my head, I've got:

 

God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman

Carol of the Bells

Mary, Did You Know?

Holly and Ivy and Evergreen

We Three Kings

What Child is This?

The Coventry Carol

O Come, O Come Emmanuel

Pat-a-Pan

 

But I admit, when it comes to pop Christmas music, there isn't much. I can really only think of 5 off the top of my head, and one of those is New Age. (Heck, even the crass "Christmas in New York" is major.) And you don't really hear much minor key pop or carols on Christmas radio for some reason...don't really know why. Most of my favorites are in minor keys.

 

Regardless, this was beautiful music! This guy knows his choral arrangements. Thanks for sharing!

 

While we're at it, have you guys heard "All I Want For Christmas is You" in minor key? It's haunting! Link

-Insert cool subject here-

Oh, it's amazing! I actually find haunting music cool in my opinion. :P

 

I'm not sick of all Christmas Carols persay: The First Noel, O come O come Emmanuel, and Carol of the Bells are the only few that I would listen and sing along with. There are a few that drive me nuts like Let it Snow, White Christmas, Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, or along that line. Probably I hear those ones the most often on the radios (or anywhere I go) and hear it again and again every year for 2 months straight. Anyway, just saying. It is just my opinion. :P

 

Yes, he does have an amazing voice. I'm completely mind blown hearing it.

Oh, I love haunting music, too! Though I just love music in general. (Which is good; I did train in it for about 12 years.) XD

 

Oh, I love all of them! Though that's probably because I don't listen to the Christmas radio, specifically so I don't come to think negatively of such treasured songs. Instead I have my own playlist, and when you have 380 other Christmas songs to get to before you come back around to "Rudolph," it's a lot more fun when it finally comes on again. XD

 

But my favorites are generally some of the less conventional ones, and like I said, half the time they're in minor key. Usually they're my favorite because they're beautiful compositional arrangements music-wise or because their topic is ironic or bittersweet: "Carol of the Bells" (probably the most conventional song among my favorites), "The Holly and the Ivy," "God rest Merry Gentlemen," "Mary Did You Know?," "Christmas Unicorn" by Sufjan Stevens, "Jack Frost and the Hooded Crow" by Jethro Tull, "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" by Casting Crowns, and "Patapan." (That last one I like just mainly because it has my name in it.) XD

 

I do make a distinction between carols and Christmas pop music, I will say, though I like both. For the traditional carols that arose from choral arrangements, like "Carol of the Bells," I prefer the original choir arrangements because that's usually where I first heard them (or rather, sang them...while in choir myself) and they're just great compositions! Orchestral versions of them are good, too, even when they throw in some rock guitar to take a nice spin on it (thinking of you, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), but I really don't like pop versions of traditional Christmas choir. (I heard a Country version of "O Holy Night" on a mall loudspeaker the other day, and I felt like someone punched me. Even Pentatonix often falls too much on the poppish side with their traditional Christmas music for my taste. Why do they throw in a vocal beat-box in a song meant to sound like bells?) XD
