Music and art pave the way for a cultural restoration


It’s been a long time since anything in the culture really represented something that you believe in. The most popular shows on television don’t reflect your values. Musicians don’t inspire with their art but appeal to the more base and repulsive elements of our culture (seriously, listen to the lyrics to some of the Top 40 songs). And, sadly, we haven’t done anything about it. The left now owns the culture, and conservative cultural icons can really only be seen in big numbers as part of the country music scene. Most conservatives in Hollywood and in music, with few exceptions, are left hiding in the shadows, keeping their viewpoints out of the spotlight.

Until now.

It’s time to get active, and while we are committed to changing our country and ourselves, we also MUST change our culture. But how do you do that? By creating and engaging with art, music, movies, and television that represent the things that you value.

There are artists out there with messages that need to be heard but have had doors slammed in their face. No more. We want to find those people who believe in America and make sure their message is seen and heard.

Over the next few months leading up to Restoring Love, we will be showing you new artists that we think should be stars but for one reason or another haven’t broken through to the mainstream. We think they’re great – and we are going to be giving them a platform to bring their art to you. Look for more details soon.

The other thing we want to do is make it easier for you to find art that you can enjoy. We’ve done some of that with GBTV and The B.S. of A., our first big step into comedy. But that’s not all.

Starting today, you’re going to see a lot more music integrated into all things “Glenn Beck”.

On GlennBeck.com, we are excited to start showcasing music using Spotify, a music streaming service that connects listeners with millions of songs. Using this tool, we will be showing you some of the music that we’re listening to and sharing music that we think inspires, uplifts, and celebrates goodness. And we’ve picked these songs not because they fall on the “right” or the “left” side of the aisle, but because they inspire us to create art and we hope they do the same for you.

Some of these artists may be ones you’ve heard of, but we hope that you’re discovering something new that you’ve never heard before as well. And, if you’re a musician, we hope to feature you on our list in the very near future.

So take a minute to listen to some of the music below that Glenn and his daughter personally selected for his debut list.

…and yes, of course music from Spider-Man is on there.

Enjoy!

*Thanks to Greg in the comments for the suggestion to change the headline from revolution to restoration!

    I probably would have used the term “cultural restoration” myself.  Anyone read Richard Weaver’s “Ideas Have Consequences”?  He discusses this very issue.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mmcdaris Matthew McDaris

     I checked them out on facebook someone mentioned to them that they wish that Beck would have mentioned them they wrote back “There’s a long story there. Very long and sad. Enough to lose faith in a lot of the leaders of the conservative movement.”Dont know what thats about but they sound awsome

    Not a one is worth the time.  Why not something such as “I’ll Be Loving You”  or “I’ll Get By” or “Soing, Sing, Sing” or “Pinetop’s Boogie Woogie”?

    Glenn, or someone at Mercury (and all you Beckheads), please check out Jeremy Dodge.  He is a youth minister from New Mexico who has put out a couple really inspiring cuts.  You can find Stand Up and I Am American on his website jeremydodge.com, itunes, youtube or facebook.  I think his contemperary style and straight forward message is a perfect fit.  I’m in no way affiliated with Mr Dodge or his music.  I’m just a fan who believes that he is an inspiring talent who deserves to be heard.

    For good and spiritual music you don’t have to look much farther than some very popular music.  These two bands might come as a surprise to those who haven’t listened to them, but trust me, they have a good message and it is VERY GOOD music (everyone has their own tastes): The Smashing Pumpkins (alt. rock) and Social Distortion (punk rock).  Both lead singers have lead hard lives and tell a story of finding Jesus and changing themselves for the better.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/LTHZ4W3RCENHSPWZDGF2JH4WT4 Aaron

    For proof, check out “For God and Country” by The Smashing Pumpkins and “I Was Wrong” by Social Distortion.  This is the kind of music that a younger crowd would be more interested in.  Enjoy!

    Here’s some more songs to consider:
    Westlife – Us Against the World
    Bjork – All is Full of Love (Bjork’s Greatest Hits album version), It’s Oh So Quiet (funny), Human Behaviour, Come to Me, Joga
    Big Mama Thorton – Ball n Chain
    Buckcherry – Sorry
    Ellie Goulding – Lights (good song out right now)
    Sigur Rós – Svefn-G-Englar (beautiful song and video; watch the video)

    This movement will get feet. America will rise to the occasion. We are truly better than what the media portrays…which got me thinking about Restoring Love, and I remembered a song that my 17 year old and his soccer coach (of all things) put together a few months ago. While it is not professionally produced, and my son has not spent much time honing his art in rap, I hope it blesses your fans anyway.

    No offense to Glenn and his playlist, but are a host of extremely good, innovative artists out there that might be a little more in the neighborhood of young folk and their tastes.  Not to mention the fact that some of Glenn’s picks are actually pretty hardcore leftists.  Here are just a few good, wholesome, and frickin awesome artists that I would recommend:

    Rap – Lecrae, Trip Lee, and the 116 Crew
    Hard Rock – Sent By Ravens, Family Force 5, Ivoryline, Anberlin, Blindside
    Folk/Country – John Mark McMillan
    Christian Worship – Hillsong United, C3 Oxford Falls, Jesus Culture
    Alternative Rock – Mae, Phil Wickham, Leeland

    There you have it.  Check some of these guys out.  I guarantee you will love it.

    1st thing I noticed – Beck wearing that big huge belt buckle. Officially, the man is no longer a New Yorker and has now gone Texas. Just wondering – Do they hand those things out at the border and give them away at the airports like Hawaiians do leis?

    I love that song Love Will Hold Us Together.  I sing that with the band at my church.  It always gives me chills when I sing it too.  I love the messages in songs, especially the songs I sing with my band at church.  Tell your singer I can add some alto harmony for him.  Love it and caught myself singing outloud around my coworkers while I was singing along with it.  Powerful Song.  Check Out Revival by Robin Mark.  Another powerful song related to our current culture.

    I echo the sentiment of another poster:  couldn’t just one of an unimportant and meaningless subject as this been eliminated to make room to mention/ include the anniversary of the D-Day invasion of WWII?  It was only the largest sacrifice in american lives of WWII and instramental in winning the war which indirectly gives Glenn the freedom to even have a web site.  Makes one wonder just where Glenn’s priorities, heart and mind was that day

    Check out “As the World Bleeds” by Theocracy ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRqVm0eLt68 ). I have no connection to the band. I grew up with speed metal because I liked the aggressive precision of the genre, but it’s mostly depressing, angry music. This band just formed out of Georgia and recently has been bringing light to music festivals headlined by very big name and dark bands. Speed metal finally has a positive message with a high level of musicianship, including a dynamite singer.

     If you were talking about the young man who played the blues style dobro or slide guitar song his web site is http://www.musicofkalai.com/fr_home.cfm .  His name is Kalai and I too really enjoyed his music.  I found his website but it only uses ITunes and I don’t.  I would download via another vendor OR puchase a CD.  Unfortunately no CDs show up.  I could not find any additional contact info on his web page or through the Vintage Urban Productions site as the phone number didn’t work.  I hope some one can get the word to him about making his music more available too.  I really enjoy dobro or slide folk or Christian.

  • http://twitter.com/tarnished2005 tarnished

    Dear Glenn, I am the Co-Songwriter and Drummer for the band Tarnished. Our music is not only “music to conservative’s ears” but being a ‘CONSERVATIVE’ Rock Band has payed a HEAVY toll on our ability to book shows at major venues where there is an OBVIOUS liberal bias. We played The Atlanta Tea Party a few years ago and from that point on doors were slammed in our face (one after another). Shortly after that we signed a small Publishing Deal (which has since expired) with TMG Music out of Oklahoma, but being a Rock Band that is family oriented with a positive message has made it almost impossible to break the liberal barriers that exist with major venues (ie: Hard Rock Cafe, House of Blues etc). We get regular radio rotation in Johnson City, TN, and Bristol, VA (our home market) and we have a couple of venues in our home city that continue to book us based on the fact that locally, we pack the house! However, breaking nationally with our CD Before I Shine has been terribly difficult because once Promoters discover that we have a Conservative, positive message in our music, they simply ignore us. I am attaching a few of our links in hopes that it will inspire other Rock Bands to NOT GIVE UP! We are currently writing the music for our second CD and so far the music is BREATHTAKINGLY conservative, positive and spiritual. We (of course) own all the rights to our music and encourage (and hope) that you will at least give us a listen. We will never give up on the fact that even “rockers” can create spiritual and uplifting music. Our Lead Singer (and Co-Songwriter) is of Arab descent, and appreciates the Freedom he has in America. After attending the Restoring Honor event in DC, we made a spiritual pact that we would take what we saw that day and inject that kind of Love and Hope in our music. Here is the link to our site, you will be able to hear some of our music as well as see a few videos. Thank you for what you are doing for Conservative Artists, and we Pray this helps CHANGE THE WORLD!

    A lot of positive bands with positive message and some that have penetrated into the mainstream.

Believe me, they are there, but don’t dominate the Billboard 100 as it is for the most part rigged.

    My church had a wonderful two man Christian band, called “Loose Stone”, play following our Sunday service today.  They are from Barnwell SC, and are so good that I believe Glenn Beck should listen to their music.  They write most of their songs. The one that the rest of Glenn’s viewers, and America, simpy must hear is “Come Home America”.  It is so much in line with Glenn’s position on what’s wrong with America, and what we need to do to turn it around!  These guys are just the kind of musicians and song writers that Glenn is looking for to help restore America.  My problem is I can not find any way (on the GBTV site) to communicate directly with Glenn and/or his staff to turn them on to the group.  If I could just get a mailing address for GBTV, I would send Glenn one of their two CDs I bought, along with some additional information about the them.  They do have a web site at, http://www.loosestonemusic.com/index.html),  and it has samples of their music , including “Come Home America” at http://www.loosestonemusic.com/preview_america.html.

    Any advise on how I can get one of their CDs to GBTV would be greatly appreciated.  I have no stake in this myself, I just met these gentlemen today and simply believe that Loose Stone’s musical messages are something Glenn Beck should get an opportunity to hear for himself.

    After listening to their music, I just knew that I needed to communicate with GBTV about them. It certainly seems to fit nicely into the “Create” part of Glenn’s ”Restoring Love” initiative.

    Dear Mr. Beck….despite no money we have opened The Art Village in Manteo , North Carolina, it is a non-profit educational cooperative that supports the artists that have been ignored or told they are not up to other organizations standards.  We have worked hard to revitalize a site in a town that has been vacant for almost 5 years  and was a dark hole.  Our team is working hard to try and keep the project moving forward , but getting artists that have already been hurt to believe someone really cares , to trust again…We are trying to support children who are artists with my 24 year old daughter’s project “Art of the Child” gallery that sells local children (age 2 yrs to 17 yrs) artwork half going to them and half going to a fund for school art projects.

    Hey,  I have a band, and though I” have a long way to go to being a better person, I’m trying to make a difference.  I’d like to reach the youth with my experimental style, but I sometimes feel I’m not worthy because I’m not a good enough person.  I’ve taken the pledges of MLK, but find struggles from every direction.  Please pray for me.

    Love Spotify, and I have huge playlists, music is on 75% of the time I am awake… I do turn it off to listen to Glenn and Co. :) Many of my Favs are on your list. Many of mine are “Christian” many aren’t … If it is a powerful song that speaks to me, I grab onto it. Madison Rising is awesome. So is JOnny Diaz… Especially STAND FOR YOU. great song. Mikeschair and Nevertheless a great too.

    Hi my name is David and I am a Muslim. I am wondering how my culture can fit into Glenn’s ideas for America. Can I practice Sharia and still follow Glenn’s ways?

    Awesome selection of music Glenn. Really enjoyed it. Here’s another great song called “Reign Down” by Pure Evidence. They have a free download of it at Noisetrade. http://noisetrade.com/pureevidence

    the song brought tears to my eyes. It really made me feel free and brave

    How does a national award-winning musician with conservative principles, who appreciates everything Glenn Beck does, get their music included on your Spotify list?  (Music is already available on Spotify, iTunes, etc.)

    How does a person go about submitting their music for Glenn to consider.  I recorded a CD of uplifting, inspirational original songs in jazz style.  I think he, and others may enjoy them.

    SO MANY VOICES SING AMERICA’S SONG

     

    Thanks Glenn
    Beck!  I have a song for you with a
    spectacular resume’.  My deceased
    husband, former staff composer for Disney, arranger, and song writer, composed
    this patriotic anthem.  In his own words
    he promoted this song:

    “Introducing
    a new patriotic anthem to America requires, of necessity, several “first”
    performances.  In slightly over six
    months since its creation, SO MANY VOICES SING AMERICA’S SONG was performed in
    over thirty major concerts in nearly as many cities.” 

     

    YOU WILL
    LOVE THIS PIECE OF MUSIC – EVERYONE DOES!!!!

    We have been trying to get this young artists (15 yr. old) songs to Glenn Beck for awhile. It seems right up his alley. Please listen and see what you think. If you like it, let Glenn know. Thanks.

    I painted a series of 6 door size paintings called The Dialogue.  It was inspired by all of us who drink coffee at coffee shops and talk about our country.  The central panel shows a group of people having coffee involved in dialogue, another panel shows an empty chair with a person considering whether to sit in on the conversation.  On the other side of the group it shows a man sleeping under a sign  with a man in officer in a brown coat approaching the group looking authoritative. I had a month long community event with this exhibited and a soap box for people to talk.  There was a message box for comments to send to officials of our state.  I believe this could be easily duplicated at a low price to get voter involvement. All of us fit in this painting series somewhere and I think it could be used to stimulate educated voting and letting our voice be heard.  Any suggestions on how to use this?

    I don’t use face book or twitter so how can I listen to the music?

    glad to see Billy Joel made the list but I’m still waiting on some GB (Garth Brooks). I prefer his version of To Make You Feel My Love but anyhow a few MUST ADDs Love Will Always Win: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDG_dS_NwxM
    and The Change: “I do this so this world will know, That it will not change me”

    Other great songs from Garth: Do What You Gotta Do, Against the Grain, How You Ever Gonna Know, Thicker than Blood, Belleau Wood, and American Dream

    Just re-listened to Love Will Always Win and I think that pretty much describes Restoring Love with every lyric!

    I know almost all these songs on your playlist! Guess we have some genres in common! Anyway, I know that you’re looking for musicians, and I happen to be one! I’m going to Duquesne University in the Fall, my first year!, to study piano performance with possibly a business minor. I also play violin and have had some singing experience. So due to all this I started to write my own music on the side and now I have aspirations to go into composition at the graduate level. I just received some high tech recording software so maybe you can take a listen to me once I have a few demos recorded for you! My whole family, especially my mom, are huge fans! And she was the one who bought up to me that you were looking for musicians! I’ve gotta find my way into stardom some how, but done the proper way. To get noticed for lyrics of good morals and passing a message that really means something to the world. That’s what music should be. A message for all to relate to that either bring awareness or makes you feel better, whatever the reason is. And that’s why I want to share my music with the world, because I have a message to share! Hope you get to read this!!!

    These songs are great and heartfelt, but i am into Heavier music. Does
    anybody have an opinion on whether or not Conservative Heavy Metal would
    ever fly on the Blaze?
