Ben Rector’s music happens to be pretty popular here around Hope College, and who can blame us? His songs are chill, beautiful, meaningful, beautiful, interesting, beautiful, great, beautiful, fun, beautiful, relatable, and beautiful. Here are the top five times you should listen to them!
5. Health Dynamics class
Health dy is kind of like the college equivalent of P.E. class, and it’s a general education requirement here at Hope, so everybody takes it. Per doctor’s orders because of my back, I’m not allowed to do most of what my class does, so I usually end up walking around the track or riding a stationary bike for an hour. Perfect time to listen to some BR.
4. In the car
Ben Rector was a huge part of my playlist for the drive from Illinois to Holland in August. He’s also the #1 played music in my car as I travel throughout West Michigan. It’s great windows down, singing along music.
3. Homework time
Since Ben’s music is pretty chill, it’s not too distracting to listen to while I do homework! His songs are great background tunes for studying or paper writing.
2. When he comes to Hope College
Most perfect concert I could have ever dreamed up. I loved Ben’s show at Hope in September.
1. All the time.
There’s never, ever, ever a bad time to listen to Ben Rector. He’s great. If you aren’t familiar with his tunes, you should definitely change that. Your whole life will probably change.
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”
