paulo Do you need to *believe* what you sing? (150* d) RE: Do you need to *believe* what you sing? 11 Mar 03


My god this is starting to be a long thread.

Adding to what I said earlier - I sing a variety of songs, These include gospel type songs, must of which come from the "shakers".

I sing them with gusto, (now there's a word,) and I also have attended religious services and happily joined in the hymns, because a good song is a good song.   But I'm an agnostic, not an athiest.
So I can accept the basic sentiments of the song - that there is a higher authority - whilst I don't believe, I accept the belief of others.

I still claim that if you believe in the sentiments of the song you can put it over better.

Paulo
