New Jerusalem- Led Zeppelin
So I just got to actually thinking- is New Jerusalem a band or were you talking about newer Jerusalem as in the band Jerusalem with Dancing on the Head of The Serpent??

I'm talking about them as a seperate band that existed for an album of two a long time ago. I don't think they were very popular but they did sound somewhat like Zeppelin

Talking Heads-Burning Down The House & Daniel Amos'-Darn Floor Big Bite

Post by Diehardpetrafan:) » Thu Oct 31, 2019 3:27 pm

I think that one of the biggest resemblances between a Christian song & and a secular song is
Burning Down the House by Talking Heads
Darn Floor, Big Bite by Daniel Amos
https://youtu.be/bgJ-hyzl6jg - BDTH
https://youtu.be/9MkputBpaq0 - DF, BB
It's funny how they sound alike :) :!:

Lots of resemblances between DA and the Talking Heads for sure. To me, the biggest resemblance is:

Seen and Not Heard by Petra
Heaven's on Fire by Kiss

Yes! Ok I forgot about that one. That's what I immediately thought when I first heard it!
I am going to have to listen to I am on the Rock and Pour Some Sugar on Me together & I've never heard Real.

This isn't Christian + Secular but The verses for The Finish Line by Steve Taylor
Kind of sounds like the verses for
Shine by Newsboys
