Reason Enough hits #1
Singing News posted their January 2009 Top 80 Chart earlier this week (subscriber-only link). [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link is broken and has been removed.] Sitting atop the chart was Signature Sound’s current single, “Reason Enough.”
Though the group tends to be associated with having the highest-energy live show in our genre, this mid-tempo song brings out a mellower, more comtemplative side of the group. The song itself is simple, very simple. But there’s a beauty in the simplicity of the message and its delivery that could make the song live on years beyond the group.
The song can be heard in its entirety on the group’s myspace page.
If I had my way, I’d love to see this month’s #2, “When God Ran,” move to the top spot next month, and perhaps #7 (currently Daywind’s highest-ranked single), “The Potter Knows the Clay,” the following month. But only time will tell!
What matters, though, is that the message of these songs is getting spread across the airwaves all over the nation, and people are hearing the Gospel presented through song. That’s what counts in the end.
