I’d like to share a pet peeve with you, if you don’t mind. Then again, I’m the one writing this blog so it doesn’t matter if you mind or not. But I digress.
I hate it when I hear a country song that sounds familiar … and then I realize that it’s a song that I once knew and loved by some vaguely known band at some point. Case in point: Whilst flipping through channels this evening, I heard a country artist singing one of the lesser known songs by Vertical Horizon. Why? Why the absurdity?
It makes me sad.
I also hate it when I hear a Christian artist redo a secular song and it all of a sudden becomes a Christian song because said artist is now singing it. Case in point: I heard a crappy version of the Rascal Flatts song “God Blessed the Broken Road” on K-LOVE the other day (yes, I listen to K-LOVE sometimes … but that’s a whole nother post). I’ve also heard someone redo a U2 song for Christian radio. Oy. When will the lambs stop screaming?
It makes me sad. And annoyed.
So that, dear readers, is my pet peeve for today. Thanks for not minding.
