Cassie Dobbs is a member of the Awakened class and a pre-physical therapy major. She is on the World Gospel Mission cabinet and is also in charge of PR and greeting. Cassie is the SLA of First Glide, but home to her is also Woodstown, New Jersey. Cassie and I have known each other for a while, but I have never known what her musical style has been until now.

Cassie: “Most of the songs that I love are songs that I associate with a specific event or person in my life. I tried to give some other reasons.”

1. “Satisfy”—Tenth Avenue North

“I may be biased, (I know them!) but I love anything by Tenth Ave. This song is especially my favorite because it just begs God to reveal to me that he is everything I need. He satisfies my every desire.”

2. “Girl Named Tennessee”—NeedToBreathe

“NeedToBreathe is another band that I just love every one of their songs. ‘Girl Named Tennessee’ is just a fun song that reminds me of the spring of my freshman year at Asbury. It’s a good ‘sing along with your friends in the car’ song.”

3. “Right as Rain”—Adele

“I mostly just like the sound of this song. The lyrics aren’t really all that meaningful, but it’s upbeat and different.”

4. “Hurts like Heaven”—Coldplay

“A lot of my friends really like Coldplay, but it took me awhile to get into them. Their new album ‘Mylo Xyloto’ is awesome! I actually run to this album, which might be weird, but it gets me all excited when I listen to it.”

5. “Brightly Wound”—Eisley

“Eisley has a really different sound that I really like. ‘Brightly Wound’ is about being a kid and never wanting to grow up, which I think everyone can relate to, to some degree.”

6. “Your Love is Strong”—Jon Foreman

“I love the lyrics of this song and the direct influence of scripture. It almost reminds me of a hymn. It’s simple, yet it has so much meaning.”

7. “Awake My Soul”—Mumford and Sons

“I don’t know if Mumford and Sons are a Christian band, but this song definitely has a Christian theme. I love when the part that says, ‘Awake my soul…For you were made to meet your maker.’”

8. “Sadie Hawkins Dance”—Relient K

“This song just reminds me of Delanco Camp when I was in middle school. My roommate and I still listen to it and have a blast!”

9. “Trust”—Seabird

“This song is about living in the moment and leaving behind all our scars and worries: ‘The world is ours, ours for the moment.’ We are only here for a short time. We can’t let our past hold us back.”

10. “Never Let You Go”—Third Eye Blind

“I think this song is just another one that I love singing in the car with my friends. Third Eye Blind is great!”
