Elijah listens to Grunge
Alright, so I’ve been sick all week, and the last thing you wanna do when you’re sick is to post something serious or intellectual on your blog. Quite frankly, the brain feels like mush and when I’m sick I’m way too self-absorbed to be helpful.
So a bit of fun instead…
I’ve been reading the Elijah and Elisha narratives in the OT and it reminded me just how cool these two guys were. I mean, Mount Carmel showdown, cursing youths who then get mauled by bears… These prophets got attitude.
And so I thought… mmm… I wonder what music Elijah and Elisha would listen to, were they alive today? The first thing that came to mind was ‘grunge’. Dunno why, but maybe it was the attitude thing.
So then I thought, why not compile a fun list (with your help) of Bible people and their ‘music of choice’ (can be songs, or bands even)… Leave your thoughts in the comments below. The more the merrier.
To get us started:
Ezekiel – psychadelic rock (with the emphasis on psychadelic)
Jonah – Emo all the way (actually, probably a lot of OT prophet types would suit emo)
King Eglon – Meatloaf (remember them?)
Samson – “Eye of the Tiger” and any other Rocky type songs. Or perhaps “Beach Boys” (I wish they all could be Philistin-ia girls)… mmm…
Over to you!
