African YouTuber Reacts to ApologetiX 

We received the following message this week from ApologetiX fan and friend Russell Cruzan in San Antonio TX:

"Here is a link to a YouTube channel done by a friend of mine in Nairobi, Kenya. Her name is Faith Obaga but she goes by Fay. She is a Christian and she does reactions to songs on YouTube. 

"Over the past year, I have sent her links to several songs by you guys for her to react to, and she is in love with ApologetiX. 

"A few weeks ago, I sent her a link to "Scarborough Fair" by Simon and Garfunkel…

GOT MY MINDSET FROM YOU

Remember when Mr. Spock used the "Vulcan mind meld" in Star Trek? Many times I've wished I could do that in order to help other people understand my point of view. However, God has a better way to get us to see things from His perspective, and that's what this parody is about.

DUMB DECISIONS

I got the title and theme for this parody on December 9, 2022, and was excited at the prospect of singing about King Rehoboam, although I'd venture a guess that many, if not most, Christians don't know who he was. 

As the successor to his father, Solomon, he played a pivotal role in the history of Israel. His brashness caused it to split into northern and southern…

The Stories Behind the Songs on This Single 

J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX here. 

Here are the stories behind the songs on our 10th single of 2024: 

ALL DEAD AND GONE

ApologetiX has a long history with the Eagles song "Already Gone." From 1992-97, we performed and recorded it as a parody about the Rapture under various titles ("Already Gone," "Already Goin'," "All Ready to Go") with gradually changing lyrics. I was never really satisfied with the results and believed we had taken it to the limit.

However, on July 26, 2019, an idea came to me for something totally different — "All Dead and Gone." I didn't get any other lyrics at the time, but I knew the premise: Throughout history, many notable people have made pronouncements about the meaning or meaningless of life and the afterlife, but only Jesus Christ has come back to prove what He said was true. The rest of them are all dead and gone. 

Or to repurpose a quote Keith and I love from the movie Night of the Living Dead, "Yeah, they're dead. They're ... all messed up.”
