Introductions All Around!!

Hi. I'd like you to meet my latest plot bunny. His name is Musical Monday. His one goal in life is to talk about a song or artist that I particularly like once a week, on Monday. Everyone friendly? Good. Let the party begin.

I love Pandora.  It's a free internet radio station that you can customize. For instance, if I put the song "Nemo" into it, it will create a radio station that only plays songs similar to Nemo. You can then add more songs and groom the station to your preference. Imagine my delight when my symphonic metal radio station gave my "Stand Up" by Fireflight.

Fireflight is a Christian band that often edges into the metal side of rock. I must admit, recently I've been rather disappointed with Christian music because of its stereotypical lyrics and (even worse) its low musical artistry. I was surprised by "Stand Up" as soon as I heard it. It states that it's alright to have darker emotions as a non/Christian, a sentiment which is not usually found in CCM.

 Stand Up, by Fireflight.
"Look at all the lonely hearts
Shivering out in the dark
Hiding from the truth
Cover up the proof
Demons that I've tried to hide
Imprison me in my own lies
And all that I can do is cover up the proof
Don't be afraid to...

Stand up!
Stand up if you're broken
Stand up!
Stand up if you feel ashamed
You are not alone when you hurt this way
Stand up!
Stand up if you need love
Stand up!
This is not judgment day
You don't have to hide
There's no need to run
Everything will be okay

Secrets got me torn apart
Trying to destroy my heart
But I can see the light
It's cutting through the night
Don't run away
(Don't run away)
Don't be afraid to...

You say You love me
That's all I'll ever need
If You say I'm good enough
That's good enough for me."
