One of the Worst Mistakes We Ever Made

One of the worst mistakes we ever made occurred when we chose the title for ApologetiX Classics: Lite. At the time, we thought it made for a good counterpart for ApologetiX Classics: Heavy, but in retrospect it appears the name (and the photo of the Air Supply-esque balloon on the cover) have scared some folks away.
The Classics: Lite CD could (and maybe should) have been named ApologetiX Classics: Pop and been just as accurate.
It features parodies of some of the biggest hits from the 1960's through the 2000's, including parodies of The Calling, Simon & Garfunkel, The Fray, Daniel Powter, Three Dog Night, Maroon 5, Hoobastank, Don McLean, Uncle Kracker, Five for Fighting, Train, Extreme, Elton John, Shaggy, Matchbox 20, Dobie Gray, Rod Stewart, and The Beatles.
Don't be fooled by the title; Classics: Lite contains some of our most powerful songs, including "Wherever You Will Sow," "Bad Dad," "Yes Today," "Put You Down in My Will," "Ephesians," "Follow Me" and "Spread the Way."
This is not just some CD for senior citizens; over half of the songs are from the 2000's. And yet the music is such that it appeals to all ages. And that's why we're giving it away free this week with every CD you buy.
