#jesuschrist I like a Christian rock song and didn't even know it.

Amazon.com has free songs to download and I like to check them out because every once in a while there's a good one. I listened to the preview for this song called Alive by Avalon. Never heard of them but I kind of liked it so I downloaded that free shit yo. Now I'm walking down the street singing to myself "watch me as I come alllllliiiiiiivvvvvvvvveeeeeee!" and then on about the 10th listen I started to realize. Wait a second....I think this song is about Jesus. They're talking about souls and breathing again and Jesus is all about that. And what's the name of this album? Reborn. Enough said.

I googled the band and yep, turns out they are Christian Rock. I don't have a problem with Christian Rock. I mean I love Switchfoot and MXPX, I just don't like not knowing it's Christian Rock. I think the song means one thing and then just kidding this song is really about Jesus. Save your self and praise the lord! I just like to know from the get go what the song is really about.

I'm going to continue listening to Alive and maybe God will give me bonus points for liking this song. I'm going to share the song with you here and I'm sorry if you really like it like I do but at least you know it's about Jesus.

  2. Well it's good you'll still listen to it. I remember what it felt like listening to a song and then realising "Holy crap, this is holy goodness."

  3. This has never happened to me before, but I think I'm going to start listening to songs and imagining they're ALL about Jesus!

    Maybe I'll even change some of the words!

    When I walk on by, girls be looking like "damn he fly!"
    I pimp to the beat, walking on the street with my dusty feet, yeah
    This is how I roll, my facial hair is outta control,
    It's Redfoo with the big afro
    And like Bruce Leroy I got the glow

    Girl look at that body,
    Girl look at that body,
    Girl look at that body...
    I work out!

    When I walk in the spot, this is what I see
    Everybody stops and they staring at me
    I got miracle powers and I ain't afraid to show it, show it, show it, show it....

    I'm Jesus and I know it!

    Yeah
    When I'm at the temple, the Pharisees just go totally mental
    And when I'm on the sea, peeps be walkin on water and it's super sweet
    (Whaaaat!)
    This is how I roll, come on ladies it's time to go
    We headed to the bar, baby don't be nervous
    Change water to wine and I still get serviced
    (Watch!)

  4. One day Pandora made me a station that had Fireflight on it and I really got into them and decided to google them. Boy was I surprised that they were christian rock, but they are one of my favorites now.

  5. A kindly Pastor once said that all music was from God and therefore every song was Christian... then I played him a little Slayer

  7. Ginny, you got spam!

    I didn't know mxpx was christian. I think it's funny because my sister loved them in high school and she's atheist.
