As we know, Mustang Sally is the over played and over requested song for cover bands. So what do you think is the equivalent of Worship Music? (Please be nice)

After playing Days of Elijah, a couple members of of the WT decided that it was the Mustang Sally of worship music for at least our church. We could probably play it every service with little complaint from the congregation.

The Mustang Sally of our Church is "Come, Now Is The Time To Worship" which is actually a great song to open any service with, but it would be ok with me if place it on hold for a while. LOL

Lord, I Lift Your Name On High

Our MD likes to do it in a "prayerful manner." I think it sucks the life out of it, myself.

Either way, over done. Good side - haven't seen it in three months.

I agree with you John. I would love to do "I Am Free". I have mentioned it to the worship leader a few times but nothing yet. I did give it to the youth band leader and they have a lot of fun doing it he told me.

We play it a lot but it is still fun to play and the version I have is one of Tim Hughes performing it. Very peppy song  Smiley

We played it during a Power Praise night and the congregation really loves it. And so do I.... Grin

Mustang Sally – It’s not about liking it but it is one of those core songs we all start playing in our first ever band. You know, three chords in any key that work for the equally new singer, and a coupla stops and pushes to make it interesting. It’s your amatur's musical history.

Given such a simple definition, I cannot think of a 3 chord, 12 bar worship song that fits the bill (with or without the “Mustang Sally” accents).

So my question is this.

Can anyone come up with a 3 chord, 12 bar in a worship song that is vaguely common to all of us HuhHuhHuh ,

Other than maybe, some Stadium style Hillsong compositions (which of course, none of us can play in our regular Church sized sanctuaries, and hence do not count) . . . . . I’m stuck!

Hmm..thinking of this as "tunes we've been doing forever and still not tired of" (partly because they're well-written, partly because we keep finding new ways to interpret them):

Open the Eyes...
Forever
How Great is Our God
Breathe
The Wonderful Cross


OTOH, some tunes that could use a rest:

God of Wonders
Trading My Sorrows
Hosanna
