Playlist: Jesus Rocks!

By March 30, 2013

Follow me on:

Pop songs about Jesus have made brief but important forays into the Top 40 on occasion... but the early Seventies were perhaps the golden period for Christian pop. Gospel musical influences, loss of hope and a need for spiritual grounding led many to create testaments to the Christian faith -- or at the very least, hit songs that mined a general religious vibe. In celebration of Easter, my playlist called "Jesus Rocks!" features 19 songs from that era, most of which you can download legally right here.

In 1971, Mary Hopkin recorded THIS cover of THIS 1970 McGuinness Flint tune which is essentially an extended conversation with Jesus.
