Clues for This Weekend's Single
Fri., Sep. 26. 2014 2:11pm EDT

We plan to release two new parodies on a single by the end of this weekend. If we told you our titles, that would be too easy, but here are some clues:

Both songs are by artists we've spoofed before -- but we've never spoofed either of these songs. Both artists had their first hits in the 70's, got bigger in the 80's, and were still charting into the early 1990's. One is by a rock band that also had a hit with a solo artist, and the other is a solo artist who also had hits with a rock band.

SONG #1
This song is about substitutionary atonement -- how God sent somebody else to die in our place. Our time on earth can be over in a flash, and there's no way to keep yourself alive. As Romans 5:7-8 shows, it would be difficult enough to find somebody to love us enough that they'd be willing to die in our place if we were actually righteous. But the miracle is that "God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." If you're a person who wants to live forever, and you want to break free from your sins, come humbly to Christ with a repentant heart, saying "Save me." You'll get more than forgiveness; you'll get the royal treatment from the King of Kings.

SONG #2
Cosmetic surgery is extremely popular these days. Some like it so much they get addicted, using it for every kind of facial and physical alteration you can imagine. But this song is about a man with more than a superficial desire to improve his appearance -- a leper. We discussed leprosy already in "Boulevard of Both Extremes" in 2006, but couldn't resist doing it again. That was a New Testament story, however, and God also displayed His mercy to lepers and foreigners in the Old Testament when Naaman the Aramean was healed through the ministry of the prophet Elisha in 2 Kings 5. This is his amazing story. We didn't mean to turn into a band that did multiple songs about such a horrible disease, but once we got the idea for this one, we knew we had to get it on a CD, and the first step is to release it as a download.

This two new studio recordings should be available by Sunday night. Once the new single is released, we'll announce it on our website on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Apologetix and Twitter at https://twitter.com/apologetixband.
