The Top Third Day Songs
Third Day was one of the most popular CCM bands in the 2000’s. A lot of people grew up listening to them in middle school and at their youth group. They might have even had the best time at a concert when they saw them perform live. While Third Day isn’t as popular as it once was, they’re still making music. In my opinion, though, their new releases can’t compete with the nostalgic feeling of their older songs.
For a while, it seemed like Third Day wasn’t going to stop coming out with album after album of great music. It’s not necessarily my style anymore, but there was a time when they were one of my favorite bands. That’s why I want to take a stroll down memory lane and count down some of the greatest Third Day songs.
The Best Third Day Songs
I’ve Always Loved You
This one has an unforgettable little intro riff. It used to be one of my favorite songs to play on the guitar, and if I played it again, I’d probably find out that it still was. I’ve Always Loved You is a song about commitment and follow-through. It could be said that it’s written from the perspective of God towards humanity. Some of the lyrics are, “Though you turn away… I’ve always loved you, and I always will.” This is definitely one of the best Third Day songs.
Your Love, Oh Lord
There are two versions of this song. My personal favorite is the live one that was recorded on Offerings: A Worship Album. I wish I had been there for the recording, because it would have been the best time at a concert. This song starts off with a great drum beat, and the simple acoustic strumming accentuates the powerful, yet simple, lyrics throughout the entire song.
This one came out on Wire, an album where Third Day started to play with distortion and develop their southern rock influence. I Believe starts out a little distorted, then comes through as one of the band’s most upbeat songs. It’s not their best song, but it’s one of the most uplifting and most fun to sing along to.
My Hope Is You
The lead guitar intro on this song is my favorite part. This is a simple worship song that is inspiring in its simplicity and honesty.
The bassline on Give is what makes it so great. My favorite version is the one included in the medley featured on Offerings II: All I Have to Give.
Listening to music isn’t the same as it was ten years ago, when you cycled through the CDs in the console every time you wanted to listen to a new song. But of course, it never can top having the best time at a concert. Today, people usually listen to music on their smartphones via Spotify or Apple Music. Which one do you like? I prefer Apple Music myself, but I’d like to see what my readers use. Send me an email!
