Sing and Wail
I recently found this site (after searching a little bit). I attended boarding school at ICA (Internation Christian Academy-a boring name I always thought) in Bouake, Cote d'Ivoire, West Africa. We had to attend church twice every Sunday, once in the morning and once in the evening for "Singsperation". I always got a massive headache on Sundays due to the lack of liturgy, the amazingly long sermons and then the long Sunday lunch and siesta and letter home afterwards. I remember being appalled when someone told me that I would look with nostalgia on my boarding school days and miss them. Well, I don't miss them, but I do harbour a small amount of nostalgia, mostly for the friends I made and the amazing color of the sky when a storm would roll in. And I had one of these songs running through my head for several days and wanted to get all the words straight. The recordings are cheezy-80s synthesizer. And many of them don't have the music to go with. But they're all straight scripture and an excellent way to get some key passages stuck in your head. Enjoy.
