Five On Friday with Travis #1 ~ Even When The Rain Falls



I'm in a Gospel funk today. NeedToBreathe's "Washed By The Water" is just what I need to hear.

From Seneca, South Carolina, the Rinehart brothers never fail to stir my soul with their southern gospel rock. Here are the lyrics along with a stripped down acoustics version that I LOVE which really shows the heart and soul in Bear Rinehart's edgy voice. Turn it up. It is based on a true story of their father's very personal trial and how he dealt with injustice, gossip, and unfair public scrutiny. My favorite lyric is...."Those people have long since gone - my father never fell."

The band's song "More Time" was featured in the soundtrack of the 2007 film P.S. I Love You, and numerous Needtobreathe songs have been used on television coverage and for movies. ESPN used the song "Streets of Gold" from The Heat during the network's coverage of the 2007 Ford 400. The show The Hills used "We Could Run Away". Fox TV promoted its Monday night lineup for the shows Prison Break and K-Ville with the song "Nothing Left to Lose". Fox Sports used "Don't Wait for Daylight" during their coverage of the 2006 World Series. The song "Shine On" has seen the most uses, having been played on the MTV show Newport Harbor; Oprah's Big Give; the movie Employee of the Month; the movie To Save a Life; and in 2008, the song featured in the WWE Tribute to the Troops special. In August 2009, the song "These Hard Times" from the band's album The Outsiders was featured in promos for a new NBC show, Mercy. Their song "Nothing Left to Lose" was featured in trailers for the movie Extraordinary Measures released January 2010. In addition, their song "Something Beautiful" is featured in the soundtrack of the film When In Rome and on the 21st episode of the first season of Cougar Town.

Correct me if I'm wrong but this is your first foray into Five on Friday - is it not? Or did I miss a post alng the way? It's quite possible that I did!

At any rate, this is my first viewing of a Five on Friday so welcome and very well done but then again, one would expect nothing less from the Queen on Memes!

I truly enjoyed this song, I also like the edge of the lead singer's voice. I hear you on the "mood" for certain music thing...I have days like that. :)

Travis Cody said...

I like it.

And yes, you may play 5 on Friday by posting only one song. You are, after all, the Queen of Memes and exempt from most rules.

Well, my rules are really just guidelines.

Happy weekend!

Linda - No, Duchess, you are not wrong. It is my virgin flight into Five on Friday.
Let's break a bottle on a ship or something....
It was fun!
Travis does an excellent job with this meme. A fine idea.
