Honest, Raw, Humble Songs About Jesus / 5
"In Another Land" is honest, raw and humble. Larry Norman, with this album, showed he was a force to be reckoned with in Christian music.

1972's "Only Visiting the Planet" had already taken root and shook the hallowed doors of CCM. "In Another Land" took it farther, producing the seminal inspiration of musicians who happened to be Christian for over 30 years.

The difference was that these were not songs meant to be played at evangelical colleges, but to be heard outside the church. Many Christians in the early 1970s found Norman to be a welcome voice to syrupy lyrics, while others dismissed Norman as a rebel chasing fame, but doing so in the name of God.

He responds here with "Shot Down."

"They say I'm sinful, backslidden,
That I have left to follow fame.
But here I am, talkin' 'bout Jesus just the same."

Songs like "I Am A Servant" belie the commercialism of today's CCM music scene. Norman himself was not glossy, and, in fact, often appeared as if he lived closer to a homeless shelter than Hollywood or Nashville.

A signature song of Norman's, "U.F.O." talks about Jesus Christ coming soon, surprising people who were spending more time looking for men from Mars.

As rock music replaced the easier sounds of Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby on the airwaves, Norman sang "The Rock That Doesn't Roll," a blues-inspired song about focusing on a more spiritual rock.

I fully recommend Larry Norman's masterpiece, "In Another Land."

Song "Let It Go"
Yeah
Cool woman, cool eyes,
Got me hypnotized
So head down, get a rhythm
Stop your stalling and your bitching

Rock steady, we're still shaking
I'm ready for the taking
So make your move, you might be
Get ready for the big scene

Let it rock, yeah, let it roll
Let it, let it go
You gotta, let it rock, let it roll
Yeah just let it go

Slow down, hold on
You're too fast, you're too strong
Take it easy, take it slow
Make it last, don't let go

A warm body is one way
You're not leaving, c'mon stay
So get down on your knees
And let me know you're here to please

Let it rock, yeah, let it roll
Let it, let it go
You gotta, let it rock, let it roll
Yeah just let it go

Let it go, let it go
Whoah
Cool woman, cool eyes, got me hypnotized
Slow down, hold on
You're too fast, you're too strong
I need a woman, I want her to love
A wound up woman
And you do what I want, what I want

Oh yeah
Slow down, hold on
You're too fast, you're too strong
Take it slow, make it last
Take it easy, not too fast
And don't let go

No! Rock steady, we're still shaking
I'm ready for the taking
So make your move, you might be
And get a-ready for the big scene

Yeah
Let it rock, yeah, let it roll
Let it, let it go
You gotta, let it rock, let it roll
Yeah just let it go

Let it rock, yeah, let it roll
Let it, let it go
You gotta, let it rock, let it roll
Yeah just let it go

C'mon - let it roll, let it go
Oh yeah Oh!
