#36 Christian Rock

By the time this post jumps online, I should be in Bandung, Indonesia. In view of that fact, I have again dropped a lazy post this week: another YouTube clip.

I came across this one during the past week. It’s a bunch of American dudes; some of whom are musicians and some others who appear to be DJs on Christian radio stations.

It’s a ‘guess the song’ battle where the songs are all 1990s Christian hits. Two of the guys playing – Toby Mac and Michael W. Smith – were pretty big on the Christian music scene back then and still are now. (Is it just me or does Michael W. Smith look so much older than I remember him?)

Anyhow, for me it was entertaining viewing and a trip down memory lane. And for the record, I guessed a couple of the songs before they did (I think my childhood flashed before my eyes whilst viewing this clip).

If you’re not familiar with the songs, I guess it’ll be an educative viewing of the “who’s (been) who” of the Christian music industry over the past couple of decades (and sometimes longer). Enjoy!

Yours in Indonesia,

Alison
