#08 — "Awr Gawd Izz An Awrsum Gawd"
(a.k.a., "The Breath Control Song") (1:44)

Here's an interpretation of an uber-popular Contemporary Christian Music anthem called "Awesome God" by a young, energetic drummer who also sings.

I know I know I know I know I know.

Coping with drummers who sing can be difficult. The prosecution calls to the stand Phil Collins.

But if you know any churchy folk, you know how some of them automatically consider almost any music by xtians to be good. And if the music was written by a dead xtian, then whoa! Masterwork.

"Our God Is An Awesome God" was written by a subsequently fatally car wrecked xtian songwriter. Hence the uber-popularity.

Our Awrsum singing drummer's friends probably told him he was an AWRSUM! drummer. Which he could possibly be, were he to continue to develop the idea that drumming generally involves rhythm. But I'll bet his friends probably coughed and began toeing dirt clods when he asked them what they thought of his singing. The way he reeeeeeeached for majesty. With his voice & all, there.

This little drummer boy is presumably now grown up. Had he perished, especially young, his version of "Our God Is An Awesome God for Drum Kit and Wobbly-Ass Voice" would not be an unknown gem of Incredibly Blessed Sounds, but rather a xtian megahit.

If he does somehow arrive at the pearly gates ahead of schedule, I sure hope no part will have been played by the embarrassing inclusion of his youthful efforts in our collection here. No, drummer vocalist! Live on! Stop singing, by all means, but live on! Let another singing drummer annoy the musically discerning among the angels (prematurely, as if that were still possible at this point)!

(I'm looking at you, Phil Collins.)

Our God is an awesome God
Our God is an awesome God
With lightning in His fists
And thunder in his voice
Our God is an awesome God

Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from Heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God!

With lightning in His fists
[Somethin' somethin'] thunder
Our God is an awesome God!
[Somethin' somethin']

Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from Heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God!
