Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

"I'll Fly Away" Has To Always Be Upbeat

Posted 05-16-2021 at 08:15 PM by case44


I'm sure some of you out there have taken the time to listen to some Gospel music. Sometimes, the choices range from Southern gospel to contemporary Christian.

Well, my thought for this post centers around a song that has long been a favorite of Southern gospel aficionados and, also, gatherings at area churches. That piece of music is "I'll Fly Away". It's long been one of my faves, and through the years, I've heard many versions of this song. Many different speeds have been used, but this is generally an upbeat tune. However, some recorded versions have the song slowed down, and while the arrangements are not bad, "I'll Fly Away" is best done when it's upbeat, and faster-paced.

Hey, you just try singing these legendary lyrics at a slower speed. In the meantime, here are some YouTubes with different versions of the Gospel classic.
