Plains Pops: Sunday Morning Playlist Edition

Perhaps it was the Madville Times post about the one-page atheists hymnal or these tweets discussing a #teacherplaylist, but I thought I'd toss out a Sunday morning playlist.

U2's classic "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" reminds me that seeking is ok.


Bob Dylan's "Gotta Serve Somebody," provides a useful reminder about existential choices.



I've also thought "Desperado" was a secular hymn.


The under-appreciated Sam Phillips has useful reminders in "I Need Love."



Since a lot of services end with "Go forth and serve the Lord," I thought it appropropiate to end with a call to immediate action as well:  "The Revolution Starts Now."


Suggestions welcome.
