A friend told me about a group called Apologetix, and suggested that I sometimes use some of their music in Sunday School lessons.

It turned out to be a massive hit!  And nowadays with Spotify, Youtube etc. it is really easy to find these songs and print of the lyrics.  We had a lot of fun learning "Do what David did but Saul didn't do" which is a parody to the tune of "Do Wah Diddy Diddy".

As we are doing David, I focussed mainly on sourcing David songs (see a list below), but they have hundreds of amazing and fun songs, so all in all a great resource to occasionally dip into.

David songs:

Do what David did (Parody of "Do Wah Diddy Diddy").

That's Saul (Parody of "That's All").

Crazy Little Kind God Loves (Parody of "Crazy little thing called Love"0

Bethlehemian Rhapsody (song about David and Goliath to the tune of "Bohemian Rhapsody").

Be like David Was (Parody of "Feel Like makin' love").

Thanks Nicolette, fun find.    I particularly likes the "Good News" parody of "Footloose."

Here's a link to ApologetiX's entire playlist on YouTube:   There's close to 400 Bible parodies! (how did I not know of these?)

Most of the songs they parody are from a few decades ago and brought a smile to my face. (Wierd Al Yankovic fan here.)

Questions for you:

What was the age of the kids you used these with?  Did you add motions? Make video recordings?

Was familiarity with the original song a problem with the kids you used these with?

Would love to learn more about how you incorporated these in your teaching.

P.S. I think these would be great for youth ...and quite a few older rock 'n rollers too.
