Well this is odd...

Not been religious for about 20 years but today I have a real hunger for listening to Christian music.
Anybody got a theory about this?

Wesley apparently said that there was no reason why the devil should have the best tunes. So he encouraged Methodists to write and sing rousing hymns.

He and others were so successful that a lot of nominally Christian music is simply (in the best sense) good or even great music regardless of its religious intent.

What Englishman can be unmoved by Hubert Parry's setting of Blake's Jerusalem? I'm as atheist as it is possible to be but it moves me every time.

Similarly atheist and untroubled by my impending demise, but Bunyan's He Who Would Valiant Be has long been a favourite

Born again Christian.

@MrBrownstone that'd have to be born, again again(had to edit that bit to get it right) but I'm not feeling that just an urge to hear a few banging tunes about god.
