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…

The Stories Behind the Songs: Got My Mindset From You / Media Circus 

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


Here are the stories behind the songs on our 12th single of 2024: 

 


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.

Influential Albums 1493–1499 

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

Here are the latest entries in the "albums that influenced me" series I started writing in May 2020.

Note: Just because an album appears on this list doesn't mean I give it a blanket endorsement. Many of the secular albums on this list are mainly there because they wound up being spoofed by ApologetiX.

1493. Billboard Top Hits: 1992 - Various Artists
Remember General Halftrack from the Beetle Bailey comic strip? Well, half of the tracks on Billboard Top Hits: 1992 made it all the way to #1, although obviously none were by The Beatles: "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-A-Lot, "How Do You Talk To An Angel" by The Heights, "Jump" by Kris Kross, "I'm Too Sexy" by Right Said Fred, and "To Be With You" by Mr. Big. Although this compilation contained no #2 hits, the remaining five tracks each peaked at a different chart position between #3 and #7: "Masterpiece" by Atlantic Starr (#3), "Live and Learn" by Joe Public (#4), "Just Another Day" by Jon Secada (#5), "Tell Me What You Want Me To Do" by Tevin Campbell (#6), and "I Can't Dance" by Genesis (#7). We launched ApologetiX in '92, so I was a little preoccupied and didn't listen to mainstream radio much that year, but we did eventually spoof "To Be With You" in 2015 and "I'm Too Sexy" in 2022.
