July Soundtrack

Is it seriously the end of July already? How does each month always pass me by like this? Seriously.

It's been a crazy month, but a good one. Don't worry - I'll have posts about the two amazing weeks I've had recently!

But for now - here are the top 10 songs that I've been playing this month. Again, summer is my busiest time at work so it is spent with teenagers pretty much 24/7. Which means they control the music in my car.

100 Years by Five for Fighting
It's pretty funny hearing the guys sing this on the mission trip.

Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol

Circus by Britney Spears

Eyes Open by Taylor Swift
Yup... still listening to the Hunger Games soundtrack. This song was another request from the youth, however.

Party in the USA by Miley Cyrus
You would be surprised how often teenage boys listen to this song...

Never Let Go- Jeremy Camp
This is always a favorite of kids at VBS and Camp Noah. Seriously, there is nothing like hearing a bunch of kids who are tornado survivors in Joplin singing this song at the top of their lungs. So amazing.

Barbie Girl- Aqua
I love that this song is still popular. It's pretty hilarious. It's even funnier when I tell the teens how this song came out when I was like 10.

Does Anybody Hear Her? - Casting Crowns

Baby- Justin Bieber
There were several girl dance parties to this song (one where a pastor joined us by the way) while on the mission trip.

Rawk Fist- Thousand Foot Crutch
For one of the youth who will be a junior this school year, I had made him a mix CD of Christian songs for a confirmation gift when he was in 7th grade. All of the songs were still on his iPod and he said he listened to that playlist whenever he was in a bad mood and it made him feel better. This song was on that playlist. Any idea what that does to a youth ministers heart? I love that he still listens to these songs even after 4 years.

There were other songs that I've been listening to a lot as well... but the youth and I made a pact. What happens in Emily's car, stays in Emily's car. ;) 

What songs have you been jamming out to this month?


Which means I need a new blog sponsor swap partner! Check out my sponsor swap page or email me for more info!

Tomorrow also launches a new THEME OF THE MONTH which is: Sharing the Love.



  1. oh, I'm *still* obsessed with the Hunger Games soundtrack. <3 <3 <3
    I had to giggle when I saw Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber....oh goodness. My little siblings sing their music a lot. Too catchy sometimes...

    1. What makes me laugh is that it was the GUYS in the group who played most of this music. Justin Bieber and Barbie Girl was mainly the girls... but the others it was the guys. And I'm pretty sure I heard them singing "Baby, baby, baby, OOOOO"


Share with me your thoughts! They make me smile.
