Index Of Forbidden Songs (Music Issue, Pt. I).

Well, here is the first installment. This is not an in depth analysis, but rather my own personal and cursory take on them. See below for the key-code for the reason for their banishment. If you want a clarification, feel free to ask for it in the combox.

Numbers 301-350:

302-Gather Us In: HH, DTD, DO ("Not in the dark of buildings confining, not in some heaven, light years away"? A little SF is a dangerous thing.)
303-What Is This Place: H ("What is this place, where we are meeting?" An icon of heaven, doofus.)
304-Gather The People: DS
306-Let Us Go To The Altar: DS
310-Table of Plenty: DS, DO (It is an ALTAR.)
315-We Gather Here To Worship: NAU (We, we, we....)
322-Song Of The Body Of Christ: HH, NAU (We come to tell HIS story.)
324-To Be Your Bread: HH, DO
325-Gift Of Finest Wheat: DTD (Nice song, but give it a rest. Also, can I have an article please?)
329-Bread of Life: H, NAU (No, Jesus is the Bread of Life.)
333-God's Holy Gifts: DS (Not bad for a DS song actually.)
340-Look Beyond: DTD
341-I Am The Bread Of Life: C, SIGV
345-I Am The Living Bread: HH, SIGV
349-Eat This Bread: SIGV

Sigh, this is going to take longer than I thought.


C=Castrated, DO= Dubious Orthodoxy, DS=Dan Schutte, DTD=Done To Death, H=Heretical, HH=Haugen&Haas, NAU=Not About Us, SIGV=Singing In God's Voice(i. e. we are not God)
Here is Part two:


Numbers 351-400.

351-One In Body, Heart and Mind: DO ("Christ be love within this sign, shared for all as bread and wine." Not exactly a ringing endorsement of the Real Presence.)
354-Come To Me And Drink: SIGV
367-Bread Of Life: DO, NAU ("We come as gift to you." No, He comes as A gift to us.)
371-Lord, You Give The Great Commission: G (87 87 D, but not using Austria. Come on folks, it ain't the "Horst Wessel Leid".)
374-City Of God: C, DS, H, HL (Pellagian hymn, 'nuff said. Catchie tune though.)
376-Here I Am, Lord: DS, SIGV
381-The Summons: DO, SIGV (The Iona Community is all New Agey.)
398-Jesus, Come To Us: HH


C=Castrated, DO= Dubious Orthodoxy, DS=Dan Schutte, DTD=Done To Death,G=Germanophobic, H=Heretical, HH=Haugen&Haas, HL=Hella Lame, NAU=Not About Us, SIGV=Singing In God's Voice(i. e. we are not God)
And here is part three:

452-Blest Be The Lord: DS, HL, DTD. (What about the God who spends?)
453-Here I Am: SIGV, DO.
454-You Are Near: DS, DTD. (At least they removed the four letter word.)
464-The Spirit Is A -Movin': EP, DO, DTD, HL (My gorge is a movin'....)
465-Send Us Your Spirit: C, DS
468-Send Us Your Spirit: HH, C.
469-Spirit Of God Within Me: H (God does not possess people. That is the other guy.)
472-Holy Darkness: DS, HL (St. John of the Cross deserves better.)
476-You Are Mine: HH, SIGV, DTD. (No I am not.)

499-Renew Us: C, DO ("Creator God", Oh, you mean FATHER.)


C=Castrated, DO= Dubious Orthodoxy, DMWP=Don't Mess With Perfection, DS=Dan Schutte, DTD=Done To Death, EP=Ex-Priest, G=Germanophobic, H=Heretical, HH=Haugen&Haas, HL=Hella Lame, NAU=Not About Us, SIGV=Singing In God's Voice(i. e. we are not God, WIG=Where is God?


Sing to the Mountains!!!

Sing A New Song:  I remember the female cantors getting into this one with their acoustic guitar back in the 1980's!

Pretty good song, but NOT for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, ONLY for a nice outdoor Concert or to listen to in your car.
What are "Glad Tambourines"Huh? lol
Sing a New Church says, "Sing a new church into being."

Lol.  Pretty subtle, eh?
I LOVE "I Am The Bread of Life" (NOT to be confused with I Myself Am the Bread of Life). The words come from John's Gospel, chapter 6, and affirm the connection between eating the flesh of the Son of Man and our bodily resurrection. What is confusing is that they are Our Lord's words spoken in the first person singular -- whether we the faithful should be singing that way is another issue, but there's no denying it's a bold and authentically Catholic theme. No watered-down doctrine there. And I love the melody too.

LET THERE BE PEACE ON EARTH- I think its from a flop broadway show.
WE ARE Church - Heard it once and ran out of church.
Excuse me, I think I'm going to puke. I can't even stand to think about that crap.  :o We've had to endure these songs for 40+ years, and now you want to talk about them?  Sticking tongue out at you
