A recent Facebook post by a friend: “What if, when you get to heaven, you don’t like the music?”
My answer: “I think Jesus might like a little Journey and ‘Don’t Stop Believing’.”
Or perhaps “Spirit in the Sky” by Norman Greenbaum would be more to his liking.
Here’s hoping I get to heaven because I fear hell plays heavy-metal, head-banging music, 24/7.
Readers, have a wonderful Wednesday and let me know in the comments what song you’d like to hear in the afterlife and/or which song needs to stay off the playlist.
This post has been brought to you by the music on Jesus’ iPod and Linda Hill’s One-Liner Wednesday. If you are wondering what One-Liner Wednesday is all about, CLICK HERE.

I’m pretty open to music options except for rap and all its variations. But, if I have a choice, I’ll go for a cloud with light country please. 🙂
Sounds good to me, Judy. I would visit that cloud if it included Keith Urban. 🙂
Heaven help us all.💜
Something I never thought of! I could not stand an eternity of heavy-metal. That truly would be Hell. I think a little light jazz, a little country, a little old rock ‘n’ roll. Heaven will be nice.
That’s a good mix, Pam. Lots of choices in those genres to soothe the soul.
ANYTHING played at high volume would be hell for me.
I get it, although I’d ask whoever was in charge to turn up the volume on a few of my favorite songs…as long as the rest of my cloud mates didn’t mind.
For me, that would be anything by Queen – or Bob Seger. Yes, I’m old 😁
Ha! I’m old too and yes to Bob Seger!
I’d like to hear Bach’s Sleepers Awake or Amazing Grace. I’m a traditionalist, I guess. Good question.
It’s whatever you want, Ally. I love Amazing Grace!
Well, I like your radio playlist. However, the idea of going from cloud to cloud for different genres of music is what I like best…more than the music offered! HA!
A heavenly music fest would be awesome, being able to listen to anything at any time, on any cloud.
I’d love some classical string quartet pieces or even orchestral music of almost anything. What would be awful would be any Rap or Country…
I agree with no rap. I can handle some country, a few artists and select songs, but not all the time. I’ll probably be hanging out on the classic rock cloud.
Watching Scotty Grow is the worst song, or maybe Patches.
Okay, I’ll let the powers that be they have no place in heaven!
If I make it to Heaven, I’ll take whatever Jesus has on the list. After all, I sat in the bar for over an hour while every other song was a disco hit. I’m reasonably sure that’s what they’re playing in hell.
Soooo…you don’t like the disco version of Bridge over Troubled Water? I don’t understand… ;-p
I somehow imagine “Oh Happy Day” as my entry chorus. 😉
With lots of clapping, Cheryl!
As long as it’s not sentimental stuff that makes me cry all the time, I’d be happy with classical, smooth jazz, and rock n roll. Just leave the heavy metal over behind that rock.
I agree…no sad dirges up in heaven and leave the metal down below.
I like all kinds of music, so I can wear earbuds and have hell music piped directly to me when I’m in the mood. If hell music is off the table, I’ll go with classical and jazz both cool and hot.
There’s no harm in enjoying an assortment of musical genres, Marian, even if it’s loud. That’s why God helped someone invent earbuds.😏
I’d like birds and whales as the vocalists. Maybe a wolf howling late at night.. Babbling brooks, wind in the trees, rain on the roof of my cabin where dogs sleep by the fireplace and cats curled up on the bed. Of course there are concerts in the village down the road. It doesn’t hurt to ask, right?
