DA/TST song you ever heard? And did it win you over? I'll go first-


Angels Tuck You In


Was #1 song on the "hipper" of the 2 Christian radio stations in Tulsa, OK for 2 weeks in 1983 (the other station was the Imperials, Carmen, Sandi Patti station). Fell in love immediately and bought the cassette in the Oral Roberts University bookstore, where Doppelganger was #1. #2 was U2's WAR (It was, after all, a COLLEGE Christian bookstore). The irony--I always thought "I Didn't Build it for Me" had perhaps Oral Roberts in mind. There is a long hallway in the campus chapel with multiple portrait paintings of Oral and his family. These were the church icons. Anyway, I was hooked.

Meal

It did not win me over immediately. I wondered why my older brother brought the abomination into our house. I was young and stupid. Now I am very grateful to him for introducing me to the boys. A few months later, I heard them at Disneyland (just after hiking up to Half Dome with this girl who was raving about them), and the obsession began...

Hollow Man

And yes, I was hooked immediately. It helped that we had just studied the Eliot poem in English class. The album was new at the time.

Shotgun Angel off of Preachers From Outer Space is the first DA song I ever heard. And no, it did not win me over. It wasn't until a got to Hound of Heaven, which is five tracks deep on the PFOS album, did I get won over.

i honestly do not remember.....i do know that i saw them live many, many times back in the day (late 70's early 80's).

either way, my introduction to da was live and i was hooked right away.

Not sure, but I suspect it may have been "Mall All Over The World".

Something off of a Bibleland cassette... I don't even remember if I bought it or somebody gave it to me. I remember thinking a couple songs were ok at best, so I threw it away. Tongue

"Ain't Gonna Fight It" off of the Maranatha 5 album. I was hooked right away. "Ain't Gonna Fight It" is probably the 'tamest' DA song ever so I have been challenged musically and lyrically ever since.


A side story:

Shotgun Angel came out in 1977 when I was 11. In that same year, I developed a pre-teen crush on Debby Boone, who had released "You Light Up My Life" that year. The next year, Debby Boone and her sisters released an album that included a cover of "Father's Arms" on it. Talk about pre-teen heaven. My girlfriend (in my mind) had recorded a song by my favorite rock band. At the time, I didn't care that it sounded like a cheesy version of "Fathers's Arms".

I've always wondered if Terry's reference to Debby Boone in "Bibleland" was at least in part a result of her recording "Father's Arms".

Who has bragging rights for the earliest year?

ILU#19 I heard first in Fall, 1980.

I first heard the band at a concert in '78 or so. I was so taken with the band that I bought two albums that were for sale at the concert. Shotgun Angel and Horrendous Disc.

I first heard Soon! but had no idea who it was and it was only until 8 years after I found DA that I discovered it was the boys.

My first would be A Sigh For You when the cassette in the store caught my eye. That was in 1990 5 months after I got saved.
