All who come to this blog: Please comment on whether the youth ministry that you were in as a high school student was ever accused of being cliquey. And... how do you interpret that accusation in retrospect?

I have some thoughts on this but I want to hold off so as not to spoil the soup. (Spoil the soup... did I just type that!?)

Ok. Try this lyric game.

Since you guys loved my dumbest 80's lyric post (and by loved I mean hated), I have decided to give it another shot. Let's hit closer to home.

What is the worst Christian lyric you have heard?

ie. Would you believe me if I said life could be all that you want it to be today? Yeah, Yeah (frankly, no. I wouldn't believe you if you said that)

'Cause if I had wings I would fly (of course you would... that's like saying if I had eyes I would see... or if I had feet I would walk)

So... what are your lyrical worsts?

Dumbest lyrics from the 80's

I was just sitting here thinking of some of the big hits when I was in high school. I really can't believe we sang along with these songs and kept a straight face. Here is an example:

Here I am... rock you like a hurricane
This, of course, was in the pre-Katrina days when hurricanes were seen as passionate lovers and not destroyers of life and property.

So, what are some of the dumbest lyrics that you rocked out to?

I'm just saying

It seems odd to me that you can say anything you want to someone and then nullify the power (and/or sting) of it by explaining, "I'm just saying." I mean, I know you were just saying. I realize that no action accompanied your words. Still, the words do have meaning, right? Even if you were "just saying."

No, I haven't recently been stung by someone using this verbal tool.

I'm just saying.
