I'm putting together a 2 hour presentation for teenagers, and college students (probably about 100+/- presentations on a book tour) at churches that's about allowing others to bear witness to the shared love of Christ, and the Church within their own relationship, so to keep them engaged I plan to incorporate some music into the presentation to keep them drawn in. What are some music ideas that come to mind that I could kick this section of the talk off with or finish the part of the presentation off with?

The reason why I don't want to use Christian music is because I feel it's not main stream enough, but I'm willing to use other music that I grew up around, and older.

  • Gotta finish it with the end of Mahler’s 8. One hell of an ascension.

  • @cmp What do you mean? I know 0 about music theory, but I do know how to knock socks of students off in writing, and speaking.

  • Not mainstream, but "Because of You" by Santana (from the Borboletta album) has a very Christian feel about it. "Alone I tried to change the world / Only to find I failed / You came along, and with a wave of your hand, you showed us the way / Because of you, life is new. /

  • @acoder i don’t quite know what you are going on about here but i have made my recommendation and said that the end of that symphony sounds like someone flying up to heaven.
