BONUS: What Originals I Remember From The Karl Years
There are some songs I feel nostalgia of because I was familiar with them. Please note, I don't listen to secular music, but here are a few that I bumped into.
You Gotta Go (Ticked): I once was over at a friend’s house and they were, sadly, watching, if I’m correct, The Voice. And there was something there related to the original of “You Gotta Go.” Something about the “whoa, whoa, whoa,” before the chorus. So I was trying to remember the APX version that I heard only a few times.
Temple Physician (Jesus Christ Morning Star): I have no idea if I even heard the original somewhere, but it does sound familiar.
Droppin’ On The Sun (Biblical Graffiti): I think I heard a sample from VeggieTales. I am personally sad that they released those 70s and 80s albums.
Pray Now (Spoofernatural): My grandma sent my dad one of those heavy, singing cards. I liked the song (because I didn’t know really the difference between Christian and secular), but my dad didn’t. One day, I was looking at my dad’s collection of APX albums and found the song! I was excited!
Love The Jews (Grace Period): This is my favorite story. I was really young, like four or something like that. So, my family went to Ruby Tuesdays. And I heard a song starting to play as we were waiting for our food. I “recognized” it instantly and exclaimed “‘Love The Jews’!” Of course, it was the original, but I was excited that, I thought, they were playing ApologetiX.
Superficial (Wordplay): I love this story too. I heard the original sung with only the guitar line. So, I was listening to Wordplay and wasn’t enjoying the “Humpty Dumpty Country Club,” and left to use the bathroom. To my surprise, I came in hearing that distinctive guitar line and exclaimed, “That’s [the original song title]!” And this is one of the few songs I keep saying the original title and not the parodied name.
Hello again! I’m so happy you finished reading my post, and, boy, do I hope you liked it!
