Hula Hooping (and Playing Viola) to APX?
Mon., Jul. 6. 2015 8:39am EDT

Here's a very cool email from a very cool ApologetiX fan:

You might think I am joking, but the fact that you did an ABBA song was actually an answer to prayer. My daughter and I love to hula hoop to ApologetiX, and "Desperate Queen" has the perfect tempo for hooping.

Please, if the Lord leads and your creativity leans toward it, give us more ABBA. She and I were praying that you would parody "Dancing Queen." Really. I love "Source with No Name" too, because Hebrews is my favorite book of the Bible, and it also works well for hooping.

I also need to share a compliment with you. Both my husband and I have degrees in music, so we have spent a lot of time listening to and analyzing music of all kinds. My husband is very good at it, especially picking up nuances in one version of a song vs. another. Well, a while ago I was playing "Herman's Sermon," and I said, "Wow, ApologetiX can parody anything!" And then my husband asked about the band a little bit, and I realized that he thought you used all the original instrumental tracks of the original performers, but just added the vocals.

The fact that he was unable to tell that you redid everything in your parodies is quite a compliment to your band's abilities. Keep up the good work.

Suzanne

P.S. I am attaching, for your amusement, a photo of when I performed at our church's women's ministry talent show a few years ago. Yes, I can play viola and hula hoop at the same time ... maybe next time I will use ApologetiX, perhaps "Desperate Queen. :)
Editor's Note: We posted the photo on the ApologetiX Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Apologetix on July 6.
