pop music

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Phillippians 3: 19, ESV

This was the RCL Epistle reading today and the reading from which my priest preached. It was very timely. I don’t watch much TV since my schedule is crazy haywire, but I spend a LOT of time in my car, driving nearly an hour each way to class four days a week. and the ride there I get to listen to NPR’s Morning Edition, which I love. On the way home, though the NPR station plays classical music. So, I flip to top 40, which is my musical weakness.

I like pop music. Which might make me a complete loser. My problem is that since I’ve started covering my head, I tend to notice the lyrics a bit more. I mean, I’ve always been one to notice lyrics, but now they are starting to offend me. I have several songs that as soon as they come on, I yell “NOOOOOOO!” and turn the station as quickly as possible. Any song referencing “lollipops” automatically goes on this list. I Absolutely Refuse to listen to any song with “lolli/lollipop”

So, I think I’m going to cut out top 40, which means all non NPR radio. I’ve been thinking about this for a while now, but this is just too timely. While some songs are appropriate and good, I just can’t take the crap. And anyway, I have enough music on my computer to keep me occupied for uh… forever. As long as SXSW keeps putting out those torrents every year. That way I have complete control over what I listen to.

    I don’t know if this is the case where you live, but there are Christian radio stations and networks that have either talk radio or Christian themed music. You can either listen to this online or look up their local stations on their web sites.
