I like Christian music. Do you see a problem with that?

Why do you worry about people's opinion you are free to enjoy what ever music you wish...

I wonder if anyone has rewritten lyrics of traditional Christmas music with secular themes. "Silent Night" is a beautiful song even with the Christian lyrics.

Something I picked up from The New Yorker, I think… (image attached)

Oh yes!!! I am listening to Winter Solstice music on YouTube right now that is in part just traditional American holiday music with Solstice, Humanist, Pagan and Wiccan lyrical themes! It's very nice to have!

If anyone has a problem with you listening to what you like, then they have problems.

Nope not a problem its totally your taste in music, if you like it thats fine

My opinion is if it makes you happy, gives you peace and you don't try to force me to participate I am swell with it!

Many of the early classical works by the likes of Betthoven, Mozart and Chopin are christian based and are inarguably exceptional. However, I find a large majority of todays christian rock to be a faded carbon copy of boring, predictable, corporately produced, lowest common denomenator cookie cutter music which isn't all that great in the first place.

I like Christmas music too. But I haven't heard grandma got run over by a reindeer in ages.

Yes... Christian music suck. Brainwashing Conformity music

seriously, most rock music is about a lot of nonsense, so is Christian music, so really there is no difference, if they be jammin' then more power to em'

1

Nope, not at all.

I saw Creed in Concert about 10 years ago. Thats the only kind of music he sings now.

You mean Scott Stapp or Scott Flippen, the name he was born with, the lead singer to the group Creed, right? He is a great singer...I got check some of it out...I mean there is a lot of rock music that all nonsense...

I will admit that I like some of the Mannheim Steamroller songs. I now try to not apply the wordage to their songs.

I like Blues, is that inconsistent with being agnostic?

I like Sixpence None The Richer and Plumb. Both are Christian musicians. But generally I stay away from Christian Rock as well as Country Music.

There was a song a few years ago, really hilarious. Walking around in ladies underwear. I don't remember if that was the title or just a line from the chorus. And I don't remember the tune it was sang to. --- I have a memory like a steel trap - that's been sitting out in the rain for 60 years.

Bob Rivers – Walking Around In Women's Underwear Lyrics
"Lacey things, the wife is missing.
Didn't ask, for her permission
I'm wearing her clothes,
Her silk panty hose.
Walking around in women's underwear.

In the store, there's a teddy.
With little straps, like spagetti.
It holds me so tight,
Like handcuffs at night.
Walking around in womens underwear

In the office there's a guy named Melvin.
He pretends that I am Murphy Brown.
He'll say "Are you ready?"
I'll say, "Woah man! Lets wait untill the wife is out of town."
Later on, if you wanna,
We can dress, like Madonna.
Put on some eye shade, and join the parade.
Walking around in women's underwear.

Lacey things, missing.
Didn't ask, permission.
Wearing her clothes, silk panty hose.
Walking around in women's underwear.
Walking around in women's underwear.
Walking around in women's underwear...... "

Thanks for that. I will have to dust off my guitar. Do you remember what the tune was borrowed from. I can dope it out myself, but I'm a little tone deaf. I used to collect funny songs when I was learning to play guitar.

Walking in a winter wonderland

That's it. Thanks.

Like what you like.

I like a lot of sacred music — Bach, Mozart, Dvorak, Mendelssohn, Fauré etc. I suspect that's very different from the sort of Christian music you're talking about, but if I like mine, why shouldn't you like yours?

Good music is good music and what determines if it is good music is your taste in music. Totally subjective, so sit back and enjoy whatever rocks your boat.

Sometimes it pissed me off. Depends on the tune.

Why would anyone care? That's your taste in music.

I don't care

Depends on the Christian music. I grew up on it, so there's a lot of it that I still like. But there's a lot of it that I never really cared for. Especially the old 'gospel' sounding stuff.

I was a huge fan of The Second Chapter of Acts as a teenager and into my twenties, but they're a little hard to listen to now. I used to love the Altar Boys, but when I tried listening to them again, the lyrics really turned me off... though the music is still pretty good.

Quickflight is still one of my favorite bands, and I still listen to Steve Taylor and Lost Dogs. From time to time I'll pull out Barnabas albums. That's right, I have them all on vinyl.
