Bible Belt Blues - 'Unstoppable'
By Brandon Watts & Sylvie Marie
Bible Belt Blues is ready to uplift your spirits and get you moving with their new uptempo jam, “Unstoppable.” Kicking off the record, a rocking, syncopated drum beat acts as an introduction to the magnetic electric guitar that sets the groove with a bluesy chord progression. Harold then delivers the first chorus with radiant energy that will make you feel unstoppable as well. After the first chorus, the instrumental arrangement is bolstered with the addition of a fat bassline that makes sure to get your body moving.
Before the last vocal section of the song, the song offers up an instrumental break to showcase some twangy riffs on electric guitar keeping the high octane energy that Harold delivered through his vocals. “Unstoppable” is a call to action that will inspire you to do better and fulfill your purpose.
The lyrics were written by the "unstoppable" Paula Vega Vondenstein who wears many hats in this dynamic duo. The inspiration behind “Unstoppable” comes from Acts 1:8 and Matthew 28:16-20. It is a call to action for Christians who are filled with the Holy Spirit to fulfill The Great Commission (to share the Gospel to the ends of the earth). "Unstoppable" is exactly what listeners are looking for after a year of uncertainty and doubt. In "Unstoppable", Paula addresses a force that runs through her very being giving her life purpose and calling her to action. In the very first line of the song, the power within is identified as the Holy Spirit.
"I’ve got that Holy Spirit power Pouring through my veins Holy Spirit power Pouring through my veins I am unstoppable Pouring through my veins Yeah I am unstoppable" As the song moves forward, Paula invites us into the mindset of someone who is filled with the Holy Spirit. With the Holy Spirit running her life, she has focus, vision, purpose, and direction. She is happy, healthy, and blessed. "I’ve got purpose, direction I know what I must do Purpose, direction I know what I must do I am unstoppable"
The song ends with the catch-phrase, "I've gotta get busy." It's a significant moment in the song as the word "busy" speaks to activity as opposed to idleness.
What gives you boundless energy, excitement, and purpose? Are you happy, healthy and blessed? Is it exercise, power drinks, caffeine, a morning jog? In "Unstoppable", Bible Belt Blues have the Holy Spirit running through their veins and their music with a message and sound that is surely unstoppable.
