A few weeks ago, I wrote that Christians like making music that is impossible to workout to. The response was great and loads of folks gave me suggestions of Christian bands and songs that are good for exercise sessions. (By the way, several people mentioned the band “Demon Hunter.” If I ever start a Christian band, I am going to name it “Satan Groin Kicker” and go on tour with these guys. )
But that’s only half the problem, the other half is that I don’t think there’ s a good Christian song to slow dance to. My wife swears there’s some sort of Steven Curtis Chapman song that is popular at weddings, but I’ve never heard it. What I did hear is a story about a DJ trying desperately to find appropriate slow songs to play at a church event. Know what song he played?
“I can only imagine.”
That’s a fine song. I don’t think it’s been played enough maybe, but honestly I do think it’s a good song. About meeting God. When you are dead. Can I have this dance?
So that’s the challenge for this Friday. Prove me wrong.
Tell me a good Christian song you can slow dance to.
