CC Music Factory


Capital Cities

Carl Orff

Carly Rae Jepsen


Carman – If you read the titles of the songs, then you can obviously tell this was one of the Christian artists that I listened to.  He does a lot of stories within songs.  One of my favorites of the story songs is the Champion.  This is very religious, but a great story within a song.  It’s about Jesus vs the Devil in a boxing match.

Obviously, I had a crap load of his albums.  He was one of the artists that puts out at least an album a year, or at least he did when I listened to him.  I’ve probably seen him in concert 3 or 4 times as well.


Carrie Underwood



Cee Cee Peniston

Celion Dion

Chantal Kreviazuk

Chantal Kreviazuk – Yeah, I’ve never heard of her either.  Cheri had, because this was track 3 on the CD she made me.

Charlie Daniels Band

Cheap Trick




Choir, the – Most of those songs are off one album because I loved that album.  Technically, it is a Christian group but they aren’t overly religious.  I wouldn’t know how to classify their music as far as their sound, maybe alternative.  You’ll just have to go listen to them here.  The album I really liked was Circle Slide, I don’t know any of their newer stuff.  To be honest, I didn’t know they had newer stuff.


Chris De Burgh

Chris Isaak

Chubby Checker


Colbie Caillet

Colbie Cailat – I had never heard of her until Cheri, now, as you can see, I know 5 of her songs.  The song that started it all though is “Bubbly” when she made it track 4 on our CD.

Collective Soul

Collin Raye

Color Me Badd




Counting Crows





Creedence Clearwater Revival


Crystal Gayle

Culture Club

Cyndi Lauper

  1. Chantal Kreviazuk also does a nice version of the Beatles' "In My Life" that I think was used for a TV theme song at one point. Also, I'm a fan of Colbie Cailat myself. You might have heard her duet with Jason Mraz on "Lucky."

    1. Lucky is on my playlist as well, but I think it's listed with Jason first so it's in the J's. Had I thought of it, I would posted it with her stuff.

  2. Chubby Checker! Nice. I'd have chaka kahn and a bunch whose last names begin with C, but not first. :)

    1. Chaka Kahn! Another artist I forgot to browse. Keep it up, you're adding more and more to my playlist. Thanks!

  3. I don't share as many C's with you as I have the A's and B's. My playlist does include Carrie Underwood and all of the Credence Clearwater Rival songs that you listed. I graduated high school in 1969....they were very popular at that time. I love "Bad Moon Rising" and "Looking Out my Back Door"...Can't wait for the D's

    1. My dad was a huge CCR fan which is where I heard it all growing up.

  4. Some really awesome music here! The only ones I really don't like are Chicago and Counting Crows. Counting Crows aren't all that bad, but I can only stand about one song from them in about a month. Chicago I really really don't like at all. I just don't like that style of singing.
