Many of my friends will be familiar with my “Baby Test” for Christian worship music. It was inspired by the Southpark episode “Faith + 1” where Catman puts together a Christian worship band to milk the Christian music market on the premise that all you really had to do was replace the word “Baby” with “Jesus” in any pop love song.
So my test is this: if we can reverse engineer Cartman, if a worship song can be collapsed into a secular love song simply by removing the names and titles of Jesus and inserting “Baby”, if the Christian content is otherwise negligable, YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG!
So with that in mind, just take a look a what this church does with “You Spin Me Right Round” and compare it to the Dead or Alive version. Head slap. I’m wondering if they do Justin Bieber as an encore. Like Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Oh!
