Clues for This Weekend's Single
Thu., Apr. 30. 2015 11:51am EDT
Our next single features parodies of two groups we've never spoofed before — one from the 70's and one from the 80's:
This song recounts the Ten Plagues in order from Pharaoh's perspective, as he shrugs off each warning God sends his way. Unfortunately, that's a universal symptom among mankind — a problem we've yet to iron out in this wicked world. Filled with megalomania, Pharaoh thought he was the lord of this world and master of the Israelites, but in reality, he was a pawn. God said, "But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth" (Exodus 9:16). Even Pharaoh's wizards couldn't find a way to ward off the plagues, and eventually the hand of doom had struck down all of the firstborn of Egypt.
Welcome to the Christian parody biz. It's time to get illuminated on this new style, so check it out. Say hello to all your nasty critics. It's a sure shot you'll face triple trouble -- from anti-rock preachers, anti-Christian secularists, and anti-parody snobs who think rhyming with the original is just stealing somebody's song. Something's got to give. Will it be you?
These 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, and on Twitter.
