Fun, but ultimately pointless, story: I had an awful project I had to do earlier in the week for a Religion class. Before I continue, this is not a fun, "question faith and God", kind of Religion class. This is a "let's analyze an out-of-date textbook and read a story from a Chicken Soup for the Soul book as a prayer" kind of class. The project was to use a prayer template and write a conversation-style prayer using the template. Songs were allowed in the project.
Naturally, I enjoyed the thought of blasting Jimmy Eat World or something into the halls of my Catholic school, but my partner thought, to accent the peaceful nature of prayer, to add flute and woodwind music. Considering this to possibly be the final time I could have music in a Religion project, I chucked his idea of meditation music out the window for two songs I thought could fit the deep-thinking mold, but would not include any instrument of or like the flute:
"Where I Want to Be" by The Dangerous Summer
"Bring Back Love (Year 2020)" by Ace Enders and A Million Different People
Both ended up being a huge successes, other than my teacher cutting the Ace song a little towards the end because the presentation was too long. The class wasn't quite as excited as I was with the songs, as it's a Religion class and nothing (I mean NOTHING) could make it very exciting, but I thought it was worth sharing.
Anyone recommend songs I should have played instead though? I added both songs last minute, but if anyone thinks they've got something better (if anyone can relate an AC-DC song into a religious lesson, you'll make my day), leave a comment.
