I just wanted to throw that out there. *waits to be pelted with tomatoes and worship songbooks*
Christian rock tends to fall into the rut, maybe more than any other genre, of each song sounding the same. Ok, country sometimes has that problem, and probably pop too. Maybe I just notice this with Christian music because I've been listening to K-Love from the tender age of…actually I don't know what tender age. Let's just say I was really young.
Anyway, there are some genuinely good Christian songs, with good lyrics as well as a good, unique sound. At least unique to my relatively undeveloped music taste.
Here are my top 5 Christian rock/pop/whatever songs. There are a lot more good ones out there, but there's only so much room and I only have so much initiative.
(I won't number them, by the way. That would require being decisive. ;P )
"Free to Be Me"
|"I got a couple dents in my fender, got a couple rips in my jeans. Try to fit the pieces together but perfection is my enemy, and on my own I'm so clumsy but on your shoulders I can see I'm free to be me."|
|"Lift your head a little higher, spread the love like fire. Hope will fall like rain when you speak life with the words you say."|
"Love Song for a Savior"
|"Shine. Make 'em wonder what you've got. Make 'em wish that they were not on the outside, looking bored."|
|"Spirit, lead me where my trust is without borders. Let me walk upon the waters wherever You would call me. Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander and my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior."|
By the way, I've been experimenting with one of those poll thingys on the left side of the blog, if you'd like to give your opinion on a question that has polarized many people…
