    I have a podcast called "The Bible Outlaw". Mostly I deal with the Bible and theology related issues and Western/Action movies. It's been going for about a year and a half. Huge learning curve... mild success.

    I'm about to tackle Church music in the Bible and in modern reality (and possibly compare it to Dolly Parton's "Joyful Noise" flick and that ol' "Sister Act" movie - and of course "Crossroads").

    Any interesting thoughts, concerns or related topics from you Frontliner pickers? Volume, instruments, dress code, tunes, length, FIGHTS... feel free to get more specific.

    "Why all modern worship songs use the same 4 chords and the same 6 words"

    "Charlie Watts and Isaac Watts: great songs deserve great lyrics"

    Goldie, just listened to the first 20 minutes* of Contradictions #4. Good stuff. Keep it up.

    *why only half? Not really a podcast, drop-everything-for-45-min kind of guy
    Doesn't mean it wasn't good.

    Thanks Buddy. I totally understand --- I don't listen to podcasts at home. I'm a truckdriver so I do my 1,000 hours of listening while i'm driving. (at home - my guitars get priority!)

    Hmmm> That's fun stuff. I should mention Aretha Franklin's early Gospel career as well. And we all know how Awesome Mavis continued to be...


    I really should mention their contribution to church music history (and how they fought and disagreed theologically at times. Charles started leaning towards Calvinistic beliefs at time)

    Haven't heard your podcast yet,
    but are you interested in songs like:

    Taking it to The Streets

    Or, Bobby Hebb's song Sunny?
    Hebb's parents were both blind
    yet they were both ministers and
    toured as a musical ministry, if memory
    serves me correctly.

    Mavis Staples and Jeff Tweedy?

    Frank Marino

    Rick Derringer

    Mark Farner

    The soulful voice of Greg Walker
    who left Santana to go back and sing with
    the church.

    Need more?

    If not the artist how about Gospel songs like Curtis Mayfield's People Get Ready becoming secular hits.

    Although my main focus is musicians IN THE BIBLE. This stuff will be fun to add. (except I may SPIT when I mention U2 destroying modern worship for 2 decades). But Elvis making Gospel albums is similar to King David harping his way through some Psalms.

    Here's a band for ya:

    The Musicians:

    1.Moreover David and the captains of the army separated for the service some of the sons of Asaph, of Heman, and of Jeduthun, who should prophesy with harps, stringed instruments, and cymbals. And the number of the skilled men performing their service was:

    2.Of the sons of Asaph: Zaccur, Joseph, Nethaniah, and Asharelah; the sons of Asaph were under the direction of Asaph, who prophesied according to the order of the king.

    3.Of Jeduthun, the sons of Jeduthun: Gedaliah, Zeri, Jeshaiah, Shimei, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah, six, under the direction of their father Jeduthun, who prophesied with a harp to give thanks and to praise the Lord.

    4.Of Heman, the sons of Heman: Bukkiah, Mattaniah, Uzziel, Shebuel, Jerimoth, Hananiah, Hanani, Eliathah, Giddalti, Romamti-Ezer, Joshbekashah, Mallothi, Hothir, and Mahazioth.

    5.All these were the sons of Heman the king’s seer in the words of God, to exalt his horn. For God gave Heman fourteen sons and three daughters.

    6.All these were under the direction of their father for the music in the house of the Lord, with cymbals, stringed instruments, and harps, for the service of the house of God. Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman were under the authority of the king.

    7.So the number of them, with their brethren who were instructed in the songs of the Lord, all who were skillful, was two hundred and eighty-eight.

    8.And they cast lots for their duty, the small as well as the great, the teacher with the student.

    Agreed that U2 overly influenced church music. Here's what we missed: Bono, and Mavis, and Aretha and countless others have soul which can be inspirational but not duplicated. Trying to copy someone's soul is not right, find yer own.
    The Edge was the right man for his time and context, but that didn't mean we should paper the walls with him...but we did because with the right pedals, we could.

    Elvis only won Grammys for his gospel albums. Not sure why I find this so interesting but I do.

    In a Good Friday service, after reading that, "after supper they sang a hymn". I just commented that I imagined Jesus as a good singer. My wife and others found that throw away comment quite compelling.
