TV commercials are using a lot of music from the 70s and 80s these days. I find it oddly humorous that some of these once "great" songs and bands are now having their music used to sell some of the oddest stuff.

 

Yeah, I have noticed that John.  As much as I try to ignore the T.V., with my brother living with us, I can't avoid hearing the T.V. when he comes home from work and parks himself in his Lazy Boy for the afternoon and evening.  They are also advertising 1970's and 1980's music on T.V.  You know, those huge collections of big hits during those years?  I think I'll pass...

When I'm at my sisters house the TV is on constantly. With baby boomers getting older now and wanting to relive their youth companies are cashing in on selling them the 70s and 80s music the younger boomers grew up with. There is also a market among some of the youth who this music is new to.

 

At least back then I was mostly OBlivious as to what the songs were actually about. These days if I hear a song from back then I actually catch the lyrics and think "Wow! That's what they were singing about?!"

I don't know how people can listen to the T.V. all the time.  I boggles my mind, and reminds me of noise pollution.  I love the Hallmark station and AMC.  My hubby and I also watch, "This Old House" and the carpenter/contractor Ron Hazelton.  These two shows are informative and give us ideas with projects on how to build our house when we move to south eastern, OH.  That is if we decide to build instead of going with a pre-fab/modular home.

I enjoyed the 70's music before I got saved.  However, I have no interest in listening to it anymore.  The 80's music seemed shallow to me.  I grew up on listening to Folk Music and other older artists, as my parents were born in 1928 and 1930.  From time to time, I hear a folk song while in public and it reminds me of my childhood.

It's amazing how certain songs from our youth can trigger memories and feelings after all these years.

 It certainly is.  Our pastor friend, in southeastern, OH, and his wife don't like the music of Johnny Cash.  I grew up on Cash, as my dad loved his music and his distinctive voice.  I have the gospel songs of Johnny and June Carter Cash.  I also believe Johnny was saved as a young boy.  And, June Carter was also born again.  His prOBlem with drugs and alcohol give testimony that the Lord can take away any sin out of a person's life.  I asked my friends if they ever watched the movie, "Walk the Line."  They haven't.  Anyway, on Cash's gravestone is one of my favorite scriptures.

"Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength and my redeemer." ~ Psalm 19:14

Yep, I grew up listening to Johnny Cash as well. When I was a young child my Mom gave me several country albums, including Johnny Cash. I always liked the song Walk The Line. His singing of Gospel songs is great, and I also still like Loretta Lynn's Gospel singing too.

 

Oh, I forgot about Loretta Lynn's gospel singing.  My family listened to those, as well.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
