Juxtaposition

Well, this is interesting.  Steven Curtis Chapman, Third Day, and Mercy Me are all slated to perform on the Tonight Show tonight!  Of course, they are preceeded by Ellen DeGeneres -- probably the world's most recognizable lesbian.  I guess they decided to offset the professing of (traditional) Christian ideals with a politically correct guest star who exemplifies a rejection of that particular tenet.  I'm just wondering why they are having these particular performers at all, and why they're all on at once.  Have they collaborated on something together?  It's rare that you see "Christian" artists on regular talk shows, and even less so when they haven't put out a recognizable secular hit.  Within the past couple years, Sixpence None the Richer had "Kiss Me", Stacie Orrico has "Stuck", and there have been a few others, but they weren't on TV before those hits.  Hmm, I'll have to watch and see what that's all about.

Current Mood: curious curious
Current Music: Stacie Orrico - "Stacie Orrico" album

Missed

Ack! What happened? I set my VCR to tape the second half of the show, and there must have been a delay in starting the show or something. I just got a few minutes of Ellen, when I really wanted to see Justin Gatlin and the performers. Did you tape it? I'm miffed that I missed that, maybe I can catch it when they do the super-late night repeats.

Secular Hits

For some reason, your post reminded me instantly of Jars of Clay, and the song "Flood" from their first album. I remember absolutely nothing about the movie "Hard Rain" -- I had to Google the band name with the word soundtrack to even find out what movie it had been -- except for that one moment of extreme surprise when the credits rolled in the theater and an actual Christian rock song that I actually owned was playing over them.

Just had to share. =)

Re: Secular Hits

Hey, thanks for commenting! Feel free to share anytime. :) It is quite amusing when you find "Christian" artists on movie soundtracks, isn't it? Jars of Clay also did music for "The Long Kiss Goodnight" with Geena Davis, which was interesting. The funniest example was seeing Take 6 on the "Dick Tracy" soundtrack!

Re: Secular Hits

You're kidding. Jars of Clay had a song in "The Long Kiss Goodnight"? I've seen that movie about three times; for some reason, it entertains me hugely. The song must be from an album I don't own. Do you know which?

Re: Secular Hits

I enjoy that movie, too! Yeah, I was shocked when I noticed "The Chair" was their tune. The song "Crazy Times" was released as a single, and this song was included on that disc. I double-checked the credits, and that's where it's from!
