Wondering How to Find Good Dance Music?
Just look in places that you never thought to look before.Music is used by cultures all around the world to convey emotion. When those emotions take you away from the Spirit and from spiritual growth, then that's when things get sticky. I love all kinds of music. However, sometimes the songs I listen to don't make me feel like a Daughter of God, instead more like a slave to the whims of men. While I do enjoy busting a move to Lil' Wayne or Justin Timberlake, that kind of music is not what people with high standards should be listening to all the time.
My particular brand of music is music that most people wouldn't think of listening to but can be the funnest of them all, for example, the songs that were written for the Be Thou an Example youth conference. Those were so fun and I love to listen to them all the time. They are especially fun if you liked High School Musical. I thought that the Example conference was like a Mormon HSM. But that's just me. Other songs I have found by the wayside that most people don't really know are Scripture Mastery songs! Before you judge me and think I am just some seminary Mormon freak, hear me out. I really like music that I can sing to and make up dance moves for. I just find that the SM songs are so fun and even I was surprised at how much I like them. I have all four years of SM songs on my MP3 player and all kinds of other songs like that.
If Scripture Mastery or Mormon HSM is not your flavor, just look in places that you never thought to look before. That is the way to find stuff that you lost: looking in places you never thought to look in.
