I Got The Answer
I'm currently 2/3 the way through the book Body Piercing Saved My Life: Inside The Phenomenon Of Christian Rock, by Andrew Beaujon, and I am LOVING IT! If you have yet to hear about this book, it is a look at the past 30 years of the genre of music entitled "Christian Rock". Sound awful? Here's the catch, the author isn't a Christian. He's a Spin Magazine editor that finds this subject intriguing and he writes about it in a way that one would write a travelogue about a distant and bizzare native society. He's not too smartalic, and he's not too "above" the music. This book has been so impressive thus far and I'm currently taking a break from reading it just so I could post about it. If you think I'm the Son of God or not, if you ever have been slightly somewhat interested in music that claims to be in My name, this is a must read.
That being said, this book has also reminded Me of the glory that is Larry Norman. Larry will forever be known as the Bob Dylan of Christian Folk Music. Since a lot of the blogs have been all ablazing with the new Dylan album, I thought some Larry Norman songs should be thrown into the mp3 blog pot as well. Larry is just about the best Christian folk rock musician to come around since King David, and with the exception of a Dylan album or two, nothing really compares to him in regards to singing folk rock songs about Me. Here's a few of My favorites.
