  • I have the privilege of writing a 20-year retrospective piece on the anniversary of Rich’s death for the daily that publishes a lot of my freelancing work. I plan to share a great story from a close buddy of mine who wrote Rich a fan letter in high school… and got a handwritten reply that’s never been shared with the world (until now). Meanwhile, I’ve just been soaking up all this music, some of it for the first time as I unearth new to me deep album cuts. I was planning to do a separate post where I enumerate my top 10, but that’s quickly looking like a quaint idea as I keep striking gold over and over again.

    I’ve polled other friends but wanted to poll some Rabbit Roomers and get your personal top [fill in the blank with whatever number you feel you can limit yourself to without feeling like you’re cutting out a favorite kid] songs of Rich Mullins. I might be exaggerating when I say no two people have the same favorite Rich song, but he was so prolific that I think you’d get a lot of variety if you asked a large group to provide a shortlist. So… go!

    How did no one respond to this?! Better late than never I suppose. Here are mine:

    1. Calling out Your Name

    2. Awesome God

    3. Creed

    4. While the Nations Rage

    5. Sometimes by Step

     

    Calling out Your Name is by far my favorite. What a brilliant writer and musician! What’s your ranking, @esther?

    Okay, it’s been a while. Had to say something here.

    #1 Hold me Jesus

    #2 Bound to come some trouble

    #3 Peace

    #4 We are not as strong as we think we are

    #5 Creed

    #6 The Color Green

    #7 The love of God

    #8 Elijah

    #9 Eatonwood Green

    #10 Sing your praise to the Lord

    This is my personal list of what I think are the best songs. There’s tons of good music by the band. Every song seems to have a lot of thought and feeling and just great overall sound.

    Thanks
