This is the title track from Contemporary Christian music artist Bethany Dillon's fourth studio album.
On this track Dillon sings about trying to balance the business of our lives with times of solitude and prayer. She told Christian Music Today that the message behind this song is included on a number of tracks on the album. She explained: "I've always been challenged by the story of Mary and Martha in Luke 10. I so relate to Martha's personality! She got worked up to the point of asking Jesus, 'Don't you care that I'm working and my sister is just sitting there with you?' The way he responded to her is stunning: 'Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion and it will not be taken away from her.' I'm learning that being busy isn't a bad thing, it's just when it becomes the most necessary thing to me. I so easily forget that Jesus is my source, and he creates order and purpose out of chaos. Knowing him well is so much more precious than any to-do list. This story has weaved its way into so many different places of my life, so it's also found its way into my songs. This record is a call for me personally to stop and listen at his feet more often, and to hopefully encourage the listeners to do it too."
"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
Geffen Records made history on June 27, 1994 when Aerosmith's "Head First" became the first major label song made available for exclusive digital download. Download speeds at the time were so slow it took around 75 minutes to download the track.
