Clue #1 for Our New CD "Wordplay"
Sun., Aug. 20. 2006 3:31pm EDT
Due out on November 7, "Wordplay" will be the thirteenth CD from ApologetiX, featuring 20 Biblical parodies of classic and modern rock songs. Carrying on a time-honored ApologetiX tradition, we are giving clues as to the contents. We'll start you out with this one:
1. Back in the New Testament
We've been rushin' around so much lately with recording that we've only had time to add three "Wordplay" songs to our concert set list, and this was the first. It talks about something anybody who's ever read the Bible straight through has experienced -- the thrill you feel when you finish the Old Testament and finally get back to the New. Of course, as this song points out, the New Testament is where all of the prophecies of the Old Testament come together in Christ, who came not to abolish the law but to fulfill it. Paul adds some great points about that in Galatians 3:24-25. And Jesus himself says in John 5:46, "For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me." This tune has been covered by everyone from Elton John to Billy Joel, but unlike the Testaments, the old is more fulfilling than the new. Then, again, it's hard to beat a legendary rock song it its original form.
