One of the arguments that I have made for a long time regarding music and its effect on people and its place in worship is that all music has an effect on the human body regardless of the words that are put to it. Now, I’m not discounting the power of the words put to song– they can work together for a great good. What I am saying is that people know what they are doing with different types of sounds, and we would be foolish to think that professionals don’t know what they are talking about.

And what modes of music are most used to drive home a message of sex and immorality– those that carry a strong beat. I could probably go so far as to say that a strong back beat is incredibly linked to sexually explicit lyrics to the point that if you could even make the argument that this sound is neutral it is directly associated with sexual lyrics through the predominance of “songs” out there that carry that particular message.
