Creed performing Stand Here With Me.
This is my favorite Creed song. The video is how the song speaks to me personally at this time. It has taken me quite some time to source the images and choose the scripture to try to tell a story within a story and yet still compliment the lyrics. I hope you enjoy the fruits on many weeks of labour.
There is much debate over whether Creed are a Christian Rock Band or not. Personally I don't think it really matters. Many of it's members were from Christian family backgrounds as it happens but that doesn't make them a Christian Rock Band. I would personally not classify them as a Christian Rock Band - but rather a Band that writes songs whose lyrics are clearly influenced by Christian belief. And the fact that all three albums focus on questions of faith, Christianity, and eternity. The band was never signed to a contemporary Christian music label, nor did it perform in Christian music venues or get any widespread regular play on Christian radio. However, the band's namesake creed in itself denotes the Christian theological concept of absolute individual belief, monotheistic. Also, themes within their musical titles such as "Higher", "My Sacrifice", "My Own Prison", "With Arms Wide Open", "Stand Here With Me", and "One Last Breath" contain allusion to Christian theology, though it hasn't been confirmed that the songs were meant to be Christian songs per se. And what, you might ask, does all of this have to do with the price of a loaf of Bread? Well, absolutely nothing whatsoever. The bottom line! This is simply a great song by a great band :-)
