Thank you Jesus!
Merry Christmas everyone! Many moons ago I promised a collection of some of my favorite Jesus secular songs. He's inspired tons of great music over the years and these four songs are an example of them. Jesus might not endorse them, but, collectively, all four songs comment on faith in the post-9/11 era, personal faith, and even the darker side of organized religion. In the least, these are well crafted songs with thoughtful lyrics accompanied with great instrumentation!
Even this guy wants to be a deity -- check out Joy of Sect on Season 9!
The Drive-By Truckers: Too Much Sex, Too Little Jesus
Wilco: Jesus, Etc.
Slobberbone: Trust Jesus
The Hollies: Jesus Was a Crossmaker
That's all for tonight. My two month old computer decided to crash, thus delaying the premier of our webcast. Look for it soon -- it will highlight some of my favorites from 2006, a great year for music! Peace, I'm outta here!
