Exactly. Which is mainly why he's the closest I get to Gospel. My stepmom is a devout Christian and has the Christian station on constantly. I'm damn near certain the same songs have been playing on there for at least a year.

I figured Gospel was the musical style, not the meaning.
Am I wrong in thinking that?

I suppose that in Heaven it's always Gospel Week, which is reason enough to bump this thread, imo. Better get used to it here so that you're ready to sing along when you're on the other side of the pearly gates.

Also, gospel is always right on the edge of being great music but somehow never quite takes that final step into excellence, though I'd be happy to be proven wrong on that point. Anyway, here are two versions of a pretty good song - which do you prefer?

I prefer the Johnny Cash/Roy Orbison version.
*hisses at Mumford & Sons*

Creepy gospel is the best gospel:


And as always, all the old Alan Lomax field recordings are excellent and haunting:


And I see Son House's 'John the Revelator' has already been mentioned of course. I love Blind Willie Johnson's version, too.

Another perpetual favorite:


And!!

It's close enough. Being an Emmylou Harris fangirl, I couldn't not post it.

Understandable. She's pretty easy to fawn over.

^ HaHa!, Thanks Chiomara, I agree. The Cash/Orbison one does more justice to the lyrics, which by gospel standards are pretty good.

^ Absolutely agree with the bolded too, which is perhaps why the Emmylou Harris didn't strike me particularly. Your other selections, though, are much better than anything that I've been finding. Thanks.
This one is a little creepy, but is more blues than gospel I suspect:-
