Every tobyMac fan has their own personal favorite songs and I'm no different. These are the best 10 tobyMac songs that will always have prominent spots in my MP3 player.
"In The Air" is a fun up-beat song about a serious subject ... the rapture and the fear of those that you love being left behind.
- We made beats and we even wrote rhymes
And played golf, I think, a million times
Now we never got around to spiritual matters
But we sure made time for our mindless chatter
tobyMac outdoes himself on this remix by adding a programmed Indian rhythm and soaring strings.
- This goes out to my little man t Mac
For all the junk you've been carrying on your back
My burden's easy and My yoke is a featherweight
And this you know yet you're still a man of little faith
Simply put, "Extreme Days" rocks!
- Got hip to Kiss and I tripped on Zeppelin
So Mr. Therapist, "Why did I go this direction?"
God had a plan to end all my schemes
I had a dream He said to be ... extreme
This tune is 110% worship (with a different beat than most "worship" songs) and one of my all-time tobyMac favorites.
- I was made to love you
I was made to find you
I was made just for you
Made to adore you
I was made to love
Guaranteed to get you on your feet with the blood rushing through your veins, "Me Without You" reminds us that us without Jesus is like peanut butter without jelly -- you can eat it (or live it), but it won't be nearly as good or fulfilling.
- That I'd be packin' my bags when I need to stay
I'd be chasin' every breeze that blows my way
I'd be building my kingdom just to watch it fade away
That's me without You
This tune mixes worship and rock. A perfect combination.
- I'm Yours
Take me as I am
So take this space between us and fill it up again
"What's Goin' Down" is, in a word, funky.
- Take a look around
Everything is comin' down
Do you hear the subtle sounds
Of our morality slippin'
People on the go
We'll be reapin' what we sow
Yeah we say we want to know
But I got my suspicions
Borrowing the chorus from the popular song by Rockwell, "Somebody's Watching" is a tobyMac fave. The song won the Dove Awards Rap/Hip Hop Recorded Song of the Year award in 2002.
- I always feel like somebody's watchin' me
Watch baby, watch baby, He got my back
See I'm down with the King
So I got it like that
"The Slam" was tobyMac's response to The Passion of The Christ and it rocks all the way to the theater. The song won the Dove Awards Rock Recorded Song of the Year award in 2006.
- So run like the wind from the sin of your past
Keep your eyes on the prize when they put you on blast
It's the Christ on the cross, it's humanity's shot
It's a worldwide call to everything that we're not
"City on our Knees"
A song about a world where we are all together - believing together, worshiping together without the things that separate us getting in the way is what Toby says "City on our Knees" is about. The song won the Dove Awards Pop/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year award in 2010.
- Tonight's the night
For the sinners and the saints
Two worlds collide in a beautiful display
It's all love tonight
When we step across the line
We can sail across the sea
To a city with one king
A city on our knees
