Memo to Christian artists

If people have been singing a song for a few hundred years, chances are your edit isn’t going to make it better.

  1. Jake,

    I have heard some great “edits” on classic old songs. Can you explain what you mean…maybe I don’t understand due to my lack of musical knowledge.

  2. The one that sparked this was a version of “What Child Is This” that changed “ass” to “lamb” (only on Christian radio!) and “Good Christian, fear” to “Come, have no fear.” You know, exactly the opposite of what the author said.

  3. I understand. Edits are different than arrangements! Thanks for the clarity.
