What’s your favourite worship song right now? What was it five years ago? If you’ve been part of a worshipping community for any length of time, you’ve probably noticed that some songs are popular for a while, and then after a time don’t appear quite so often during church services.

Faith Today’s newest cover story in the Mar/Apr issue digs into the changing world of contemporary worship songs and examines their life span (getting shorter almost by the year!).

The writers on this story including Mike Tapper in South Carolina, Marc Jolicoeur in New Brunswick and others are members of the research team that conducted a scholarly study on the life spans of worship songs. In their article they take you behind the scenes of their research and explain the rollercoaster ups and downs of life as a worship song today.

Then, we did something fun. We created a Spotify playlist of the top 118 worship songs they studied, which they refer to as their “Diamond” list. (Check it out in the big black box below.) We had a lot of fun putting it together, listening to snippets of songs that took us back through time to a certain church or a worship event we attended in different eras of our lives.

We think you’ll really enjoy this. Many will find it a walk down memory lane. Let us know. We’d love to hear from you. You can contact us anytime.
