Positive or Christian songs that are family friendly

We're finding it harder and harder to listen to mainstream media without cringing. So we've cherry picked a song list. These songs are either explicitly Christian or secular with a positive message (from 1930 - 2020).

We let each song stand on its own merit rather than on evaluating the sanctity of the artist

We didn't consider the faithfulness or lack thereof of the artists or song writers because once you start scrutinizing artists or their beliefs you'll become very disillusioned. After 10 years in the secular music industry and 10 years in the Christian industry, I (Hugh) have come to believe that artists should't try to be politicians or preachers, because they are often too emotional to be consistent. Almost every artist has gone off the rails at some point or said something dumb or heretical. Some artists have lived their lives in the dark, but still the light gets through. So please understand that these songs are to be considered on their own merit, regardless of the state of the soul, or political leanings of the artist or author. We read the writings of Solomon in the Bible even though he went off the rails at the end of his reign. For Catholics, perhaps is a little like when we receive communion. It is valid regardless of the state of the soul of the priest or the fidelity of his homilies. God gives gifts to humanity through people, regardless of their holiness or lack thereof.

This is a work in progress and I'll be adding more in the coming months. If you have a favourite song you want to add, please contact us.
