For real! We need to get together for a P&WF jam and make a goal to have the LONGEST worship song EVER!!!
You know in another thread someone mentioned changing typical song types, and asked about Allman Bros.
We could put the Psalms or maybe the Passion to Allman Brothers LAFE as one song.
If you haven;t listened to LAFE recently, or critically, do so some day.
There are at least 5 or so licks from children songs.

what about a re-write of Free Bird that segways into Blackbird by Alter Bridge, finally into I Saw the Light as played by David Crowder Band

That should be about 30 minutes, then we would have to send it to Hillsong and Jesus Culture and tell them that we have tiger blood and are winning!

I think they try to outdo each other sometimes.

Haha well that won't be good for the Awakening Conference in August where they'll both be doing it. No wonder it's going to be 3 days long! Just one huge song battle.

One of the best lessons I have learned in my songwriting in the last year is:

(1) less is more;

and

(2) go with what works.

These songs are being played on the radio, with similar styles and chord progressions, because - frankly - people like to listen to them.

So, if we want to write corporate worship that affects congregations, then this is the pattern.

If we want to write crazy original songs without familiar structures, then I say great... but if you're the only one who seems to be responding to your latest, greatest masterpiece and the congregation appears flat, then that song is probably best served at home, with God, you, and your guitar.

I dont mean to stir the pot... But which Hillsong song is 15 minutes....

I play about 30-40 of them regularly and they are usually pretty short.  4 minutes on average.

Are we talking about them playing live?  Cause I have most of their live shows and they are all similar to the recording.

Also I think that if the moment is right and people are worshiping I dont have a problem extending a song or bridge or chorus or just getting quiet and letting the song go where it goes.  We have begun doing that more often.  If the congregation is not into it we end the song and move on. 

Worship should not be 4 songs done perfect and then the band rush's off the stage.  We are supposed to be creating an atmosphere... And that isnt easily defined as to how that is supposed to happen.

Mike Campbell said once Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers has a motto for song writing.  "dont bore us... get to the chorus"

I have all their cd's and for the most part they don't go over 7. But Fire Fall Down and Savior King both go over 10 minutes. I don't know about 15 but once you hit 10 you've already entered the same territory.

Also I think that if the moment is right and people are worshiping I dont have a problem extending a song or bridge or chorus or just getting quiet and letting the song go where it goes.  We have begun doing that more often.  If the congregation is not into it we end the song and move on.
I totally agree. I think it can get out of hand and sometimes ends but feeling just awkward, but most of the time there is space to be had to let the Spirit continue what's going on.

I think that letting the music go on can be a beautiful thing or an awful thing.  Its hard to describe how to do it consistantly... and we all know when its wrong... but when its done right its really cool.

I've never played savior king or fire fall down. But I will be listening to them today.
