The Sunday School Catechism

You don't realize just how many annoying earworms you learned as a kid in Sunday School until you see a list like that.  And now "Rise and Shine" is stuck in my heady, heady.

So.  Use of catchy tunes to indoctrinate children.  Discuss.

I think the Angry Video Game Nerd reviewed a bunch of Bible games once. One had a "singalong" part to it, and one of the songs was called "Moses and Me." (The album art also featured the song title graffitied on a wall.)

I must not have gotten to the "singalong" part of the review.  All I remember is "You forgot Baby Moses!"

Also, I still know all the words to "Awesome God," including the hand movements.

While it is indoctrination, I see it as no more harmful than the political kind. "Rise and Shine" doesn't strike me as any worse than "My Country Tis of Thee". And sometimes they teach friendly messages. "Jesus loves the little children" told us that Jesus loved everyone. "Red and yellow, black or white, they are precious in his sight." and could be used as a means to teach against racism if you were so inclined.
Matthew 22:39 "And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." God's own "don't be a dick" rule.

Lithp and Vene really need to have some kind of confusing sexual encounter where Vene spends the entire session lovingly insulting Lithp's technique, then cums on his face, ruffles his hair, says, "You're all right, kid!", and then punches him in the nuts.

Fun activity. When singing hymms, whenever you're supposed to sing the word "heart", replace it with "arse". I discovered that little trick back when I went to a catholic primary school. The results can be positively hysterical.

At my school it was dog and God.

Eurgh. My mom used to sing "Rise and Shine" as loudly as she could to annoy us out of bed in the morning.

Well, good news. "Mistletoe" is finally out of my head, now it's just replaced with that damn song.

I actually do not remember a fucking thing about that song. The only one I really know is 'Jesus loves me'. As I told L in another thread I have forgotten a lot of things about my time, except for flashes of CCD classrooms and the Jesus song and my First Communion.

I remember "Rise and Shine". Now I'm trying to think of some better songs from Sunday school.

Ah. Now I have "Mi Chamocha" stuck in my head. Much better.

Good, then you've forgotten all about Father Abraham and his many sons.  RIGHT ARM!  LEFT ARM!  RIGHT FOOT!  LEFT FOOT!  NOD YOUR HEAD!

I would love to know how "Father Abraham" turned into "Day-O" in your mind.
