It's "A Joyful Noise"

Wow.  A lot done tonight.  And I was afraid that we wouldn't even get a chance to get together.  But John came over and we cut some horn parts on "Thank You".  They rock.  John rocks.  We all rock!  He is always able to take what I've given him and notch it up two or three in ideas and intensity.  What a friend!
Then, after he left, I stayed in the studio and cut 8 tracks of lead vocals.  I feel really good about them, too.  I'm pretty sure I can comp a keepable track out of it. 
This tune is funny.  It's not like "Toy Soldiers", where there's a linear story line.  The verses are all over the place in concept.  I'm basically just listing the things I'm thankful for.  So, sometimes, I forget which order they go in.  As many times as I've recorded it and sang it live, I still mess it up.
But then, after that, I got brave.  I cut some scratch vocals for "Turn it Up".  This is the tune where the Lord wants me to turn it up a notch, too, I think, and really press my ability.  But I heard in this quick cut tonight, the seeds of ability that I've been working on for four years.  I heard glimpses of things that I thought I'd never be able to do.  And that was VERY exciting.
And, of course, when I record that one for reals, you'll be the first to know!
