The free bed we’ve been saving in the closet for several months:

New song by Ben Folds, lyrics by writer Nick Hornby. Recorded by YouTube music sensation, Pomplamoose.

If you just need pure silliness today, watch to the end.

Okay, I know, many of you want to string me up after merely reading the title of this post. Let me explain: I’m a jerk. I’m cynical and somewhat of a music snob. In no way have I or would I ever pretend to be able to write a worship song, or any song for that matter, but I have been subjected to numerous worship sets which made me feel like laughing or puking. (Neither option is preferable when singing to the Big Guy.) Additionally, I am the director of our church’s Worship Planning Team, so every week I consciously choose to let these and other songs which annoy me to be played, for the good of everyone else. So I am capable of group thinking. I just reserve the right to my opinion. And so do you. (So please tell me your own worst worship song).

This post is old (2004), but I just found it and it is so great. It is fun to read the comments, too, all 755 of ’em. I just wish “personman” would update his list for 2010.
