ha!

There is a song we do here at IHOP - an older song, really, although we've just started singing it here in the last six months. I have noticed that IHOP worship leaders feel strangely compelled to tweak it to make it their own - meaning that while six bands may play the song, each band adds a riff, a line, a syncopated handclap or line dance, I'm no sure why they feel strangely compelled to do so...but it's fun.

Derek's doing it this morning, backed up by a synthesized version of the Tower of Power. Ha! IHOP to the soundtrack of Back to the Future. 1.2 million gigawatts, Derek, what were you thinking?!?

As for the song, I'm just waiting for someone to bust out the country version. :)

Being as you failed to actually mention the song name, let's see if we can guess...

Is it "Our God is an Awesome God"?

What do I win, by the way... :)

You should let Clay Edwards know what the song is--I bet he could countrify it.

Stairway to Heaven?

i watch ihop-kc on the web and i seriously love when derek busts out the horn section on his keyboard. there is such a difference lately in ihop with the music actually not being so homogenized. to experience it live is so awesome, but even just watching on a screen, it can really be amazing.

i have no guess on the song either.

I have it now: "I Exalt Thee"...done just this morning by Bro Rizzo!

What do I win??
