"JC's Mom" is First Single from The New CD
Thu., Dec. 2. 2004 9:33am EST

We've decided to release "JC's Mom" as the first single from our new CD, "New & Used Hits: The Best of ApologetiX Vol. 1 & 2," a two-CD set featuring 40 songs, including 18 new tracks. If you'd like to hear it played on your local Christian rock station, please contact them and request it.

A parody of the smash pop and alternative hit "Stacy's Mom" by Fountains of Wayne, "JC's Mom" tells two stories of Jesus' progression into manhood as seen through the eyes of his mother. ApologetiX lead singer and lyricist J. Jackson explains the stories behind the song:

"After Jesus is presented in the temple, the Bible only recounts one story from His childhood -- the extra time He spent in the temple at age 12 while His parents frantically searched for Him. His first miracle occurs at the Wedding Feast of Cana. Both of these events happen in chapter 2 of a Gospel, Luke and John, respectively, as is noted in the song.

"Both accounts also show Him saying rather surprising things to His mother. In Luke 2:49, He says, 'Why were you searching for me? Didn't you know I had to be in my Father's house?" In John 2:4, He says, 'Dear woman, why do you involve me? My time has not yet come.' They fit nicely into the theme of the song, Jesus growing up as His mother watches in amazement, hence the opening lines of each chorus, "JC's mom has got a growin' son."

Early feedback shows this song is fast becoming a fan favorite:

"'JC's Mom' is awesome ... and what a fabulous job on the lyrics (the writing and singing)."
Wanda

"I got the new CD Tuesday!! It's definitely your best yet. ;) I was sitting upstairs and my dad put on 'JC's Mom' and I heard the first line and ran downstairs. I was like, oh my gosh, where's the new CD?!? And my dad was just laughing at me. HE was like "Wow, six seconds. Now we know how to get your attention." lol But yeah, it's really awesome. I like all the new parodies, especially 'JC's Mom' ..."
Caity

"Just got the Hits CD...and once again, I'm in love. JC's mom is wonderfully done ..."
Matt

"'JC's Mom' was kind of an interesting song to me for some reason.  Maybe because it's the first time I've heard anyone talk about the story of Jesus at the temple on the basis that this shows that he was almost grown up and about to be the man that God had created Him to be.  Then it finally shows at the dinner party when he changes the water into wine.  I found that quite interesting."
Jake

The previous ApologetiX CD, "Adam Up," featured two Top 30 R & R hits, "Lifestyles of the Rich & Nameless" (also #1 on the ChristianBEATS modern/college rock chart and the 2004 American Christian Music Award winner for Alternative Song of the Year) and "Downer of a Sister." "Adam Up" also featured the #1 rap/hip hop single, "Look Yourself," (#1 ChristianBEATS).
