  • While I'm not sure you'd call it a Christian song, I can't listen to Carrie Underwood sing "Jesus, Take the Wheel" without tearing up. Believer or not, we've all felt that way.

  • I LOVE I'll Fly Away"- the newer version :) AND I just listen to Spirit 105.3 - a Christian station here in Seattle- it is great because I don't have to worry about my kiddo listening to the Dj's ya know? BUT I DO also listen to Amy Winehouse and others- I just love music- :)

    Totally! I use to listen to rock stations until I had kids. Now I stick to country and Chrisitan for that reason. We have satellite in the car that has kids stations. I LOVE that for when they are in the car with me. We're pretty big on music too.

  • I frequent a store that aways plays Christian music (contemporary radio station) and am often there for hours. Some songs I may like, based on the music/arrangement itself, but more often than not I find the songs very repetitive and simplistic, lyrically and technically. I also tend to analyze them from a psychological angle, as that interests me. For example, the "praise type songs" can be very repetitive and trance-like. I've also seen that intended effect at Christian concerts when I was younger. OK, maybe more than you wanted to know LOL I grew up in a house full of music with a musician/music teacher father ...

  • Actually no. Not a single one. I am soooo not into christian or country music (that generally has christian undertones)in the slightest.

    I can see that actually. For me, I think it's because by that point I'm in a real worshipful mode and it just sorta drives it home for me. It's more about meditation, kwim? It helps take you to a deeper meditative state, if that makes sense. :-)

  • No Chrisitan songs, except the Christmas ones. They are just beautiful and put me in a Christmas mood so I will listen to them even if Christian. :-)

  • Ohh back in the day Stryper had a few good songs. As did Bride and Holy Soldier. I can listen to anything that's not a hymn. Christmas songs are iffy.

  • I know this is for non-christians(forgive me!), but I just thought I'd throw out something from the opposite end...I'm a Christian and I don't like most Christian songs! I agree with what others have said, they just don't have a very good sound. What's up with that? Although I do enjoy the messages of some.
