Hola! Welcome to the first Sunday Setlist of 2009. In case this is your first time, my blog post is part of Fred McKinnon’s Sunday Setlist party that he throws every Sunday. You can find links to many other Sunday Setlists on Fred’s blog.
This morning at GracePoint, I was on the sound board once again. Here’s the view from the board (I apologize for the crappy quality.)
- Elevation by U2 (walk-in)
- One Way by Hillsong United
- Hold You High by By the Tree
- Mighty to Save by Hillsong
- Word of God Speak by Kutless
- Rise Above This by Seether (offering)
Elevation – This was the first time for Elevation. I was a little concerned about the complexity of this one, but it turned out phenomonal. I took some video of the second service, but discovered when I got home that my camera was set on “compact video” for some stupid reason. It’s not worth posting at postage stamp resolution… Awesome job guys!
One Way – I think this was the first time that Christina had ever sang One Way. She did a great job. Fun song. I love the bridge!
Hold You High – A great song. Mike does a great job singing this one.
Mighty to Save – We play it more like the original Hillsong version on the “Mighty to Save” album, rather than Hillsong United on ” The I Heart Revolution” album that came out last year. The guitar parts are cooler, although Rod usually covers the beginning guitar riff on keys. Good song. I really like the dynamics. Mike got everyone singing a capella at the end. Very nice.
Word of God Speak – The Kutless version is way cooler than the Mercy me version, so that’s what we have alway used. Deric is awesome on this song with all of the tom-tom work, and his patent-pending “trash can” cymbal sounds awesome at the begginning. Especially after I added a lot of delay and reverb to it. Another great song.
Rise Above This – This song is perfectly suited to Gil’s voice. Great dynamics as it goes from calm to screamo in the chorus. This song is becoming a bit of a staple. And that’s a good thing. (I got some very low resolution video during sound check on this one too…)
As an added bonus… here is the pre-service playlist from my ipod. I was going for sort of a sort of a 2002 rap-rock thing (well, mostly). I also had a mostly acoustic playlist ready to go, but scrapped the idea…

Higher Ground by 38th Parallel
Unbelievable by Thousand Foot Krutch
Old School by Inhabited
Wake Up by KJ-52 (featuring Toby Morrell of Emery)
Go by Forty Days Tempted
