So I decided to bring back some songs from over a decade ago.
My Playlist is a compilation of all the “hit songs” while I was a fresher on campus.As per the sister-girl that I am, most of the songs are gospel.
Btw, does anyone remember that once upon a time, Infrared, was the thing for transferring media files from phone to phone?
Before the advent of Bluetooth, that is.
And Technology can only get better.
So here goes:
12. Ara ile (Simi)
This was before Sister Simi became Simi the Star 😅
I loved this song.
Though I was not much of a dancer back then, but I always found myself moving to the beats of the song.
It made sense since it was a song about dancing unto the Lord.
11. You’re Alpha & Omega (Israel Houghton)
This song was everywhere.
Almost everyone I knew had it on their phones.
If it was a book, it would definitely have been a best-seller.
God is truly the Alpha and Omega.
10. Only Praise (Infinity)
I miss this crew.
I used to be a big fan of Infinity. The singers of the popular song, “Olori Oko.”
99% of their songs still make me nostalgic till date.m
Infinity songs are a reflection of a part of my teenage years.
So let me confess, I choreographed to this particular song in church. 🙈
9. My redeemer lives (Nicole C. Mullen)
“Who told the sun where to hide in the morning?
And who told the ocean you can only come this far?”
That voice. Chai!
Sister Nicole didn’t come to play at all.
If I had a voice like hers ehn….
8. Heritage (Jahdiel)
This song that year was lit! 🙌
7. Bread of life (Fred Hammond)
This reminds me so much of campus fellowship days.
You’re leading Worship and you’ve not sung Bread of Life, is that one worship?
6. He lives in me (Lebo M.)
This song was a favorite before I even had a phone or knew the meaning of a playlist.
And until recently, I didn’t realize it was a soundtrack from The Lion King.
Let’s just say I had a Disney-deprived childhood. 😁
5. The Land is Green (TY Bello)
We miss your voice, Madam TY Bello.
Please come back.
4. Ijoba Orun (Lara George)
Who would have thought that this song was a remix of an older version?
The lyrics will always be relevant.
It’s a reminder to believers that heaven is the goal.
3. Our God is an Awesome God (Michael W. Smith)
Michael W. Smith is one of my favorite gospel artistes till date.
2. Power of your love (Hillsong)
I loved this song so much ehn…it even became one of my plate washing companions.
If you know, you know.
1. Mercy Said No (Cece Winans)
This is an evergreen song that always finds its way back to me.
My once-upon-a-time ringtone.
I even did my own cover of the song (Yoruba version)
The song just ministers to me on another level.
God bless Cece Winans.
So what songs were your favorites like 10 years ago? Please share.
