How many times can you listen to the same song?

james_fortune_fiya_cdI’m sure most of us remember when “Why We Sing” by Kirk Franklin and The Family first came out. What were your thoughts after the first or second time you heard it? Great song? What were your thoughts after the 200th time you heard it? Were you tired of hearing it on the radio every 20 minutes?

Is there a such thing as too much of a good thing? How long can you hear the same song time and time again? How many times have you heard of Marvin Sapp’s “Never Would Have Made It”? I’m going to go out on a limb and guess about 10 dozen and you probably don’t even own the CD.

Now, “I Trust You” by James Fortune and FIYA is new “IT” song. That’s great for them and the people that song ministers to. There is no doubt that “I Trust You” is a song that can help people get through a variety of life’s circumstances.

How often do the rest of us really need to hear that song? Does your local radio station need to play it every 20 minutes? Couldn’t we all get by on every hour or hour and a half?

Does your church choir need to sing it every Sunday? How about just once per month. If your church choir isn’t singing it, then I’m sure your mime and/or dance teams have already made it a major part of their repertoire.

I am confident that someone reading this post is going to go a choir concert within the next 10 days or so. I guarantee you that someone’s choir will sing that song. They are going to get up there and sing it like it is completely original and everyone else in the audience has not been hearing that song for the last four months. The people who are really going to be upset are the other three choirs that were planning on singing that song. Now they will have to scramble to find something else to sing.

Don’t get me wrong, “I Trust You” is a great song. All I’m saying is that things are so much better when they are consumed in moderation.

    I completely agree. I don't understand how people can listen to the same songs repeatedly for years. There's liking something and then there's abusing it.
