TobyMac – Me Without You
The other day, I was making dinner in the kitchen and I heard music start blaring from the family room. Curious about what was going on, I left my skillet unsupervised for a moment to peek around the corner to see just what exactly my 6 year old son, Alex, was up to.
Imagine my surprise when I saw him dancing and singing his little heart out on top of the pool table as he balanced my iPad on his shoulder listening to Toby Mac’s song, ‘Me Without You’.
“Alex,” I said, “what in the world are you doing?”
“Having fun singing about Jesus,” he replied nonchalantly.
I think he assumed he was in trouble.
Just so you know, no one ever gets in trouble at my house for having fun while singing about Jesus.
Then, it was Alex’s turn to be surprised as I climbed up on the pool table with him to sing and dance along to ‘Me Without You.’ We had a blast! Since no one plays pool at our house, I think we may end up turning the pool table into the official Stauffer family dance floor. All we need now is a wireless microphone, some stage lights and maybe a fog machine….
So, that is the story of how I came to select this week’s addition to the Tuesday Tunes playlist. I’ve added the official lyric video over to my board on Pinterest, and you can view it by clicking here.
While we are on the subject of Toby Mac and in a roundabout way, his most recent project ‘Eye On It’, I would like to encourage you to hop over to iTunes and get this album like, right now.
I feel sort of compelled to say this because the other day I read a review on a Christian music site that said, and I quote, “Eye on It is Toby Mac’s worst project ever.” Seriously? There are times when I wonder who writes some of this stuff, and no question about it, this was one of those times.
In my opinon, calling Eye On It Toby Mac’s worst project ever would be like going to Italy to look at the masterpieces of Michelangelo only to say that his paintings in the Sistine Chapel were his worst works ever because you like his sculptures better than his paintings. Even on his worst day, Toby Mac’s music is a far cry better than a lot of other artists on their best day.
I promise you will not be disappointed with this one, contrary to what some other reviewers may be saying. ‘Eye On It’ is fun, it’s upbeat, it’s enjoyable from the beginning to the end. Apparently, that’s not something that real critics like so it’s a good thing I’m not a real critic, just a Mom who enjoys dancing and singing on pool tables with her six year old.
