marty D Can you sing 'Gospel' without Belief? (108* d) Can you sing 'Gospel' without Belief? 05 Jun 01

This is something that I've wondered for years now and figured Mudcatters would have some interesting opinions on. When my musical friends and I get together we often sing Gospel songs, and not only are some Jewish, but I suspect a few are pretty much aetheists. It doesn't seem to matter much though. The one person in our group who is actually (I think) a fundamentalist rarely sings the well known folk or blues Gospel songs but usually has new songs that the rest of us have never heard. Can't say I like them much. They seem slick and 'new countryish'.

So I'm curious. Can you really get into Gospel songs if you think that 'resurrection-stuff' is a bunch of hooey? If so, how?
