Top 10 Pop Songs With Children's Choruses

On the way home from ACL this past Sunday night, Craig's Hlist had his Rdio account humming over the speakers playing one of his playlists (phlayhlist?), but not the sad-bastard mix we rocks whenever we are at work alone. It was the life-spanning one we have been making since we got on the music site.

Now don't ask us how, but B.J. Thomas' "Using Things And Loving People" showed up before our New Order section on the list. The Hal David-penned cut comes from Thomas' album You Gave Me Love (When Nobody Gave Me A Prayer), one of his more popular gospel albums. Overall it's pretty sappy going, but buoyed by his mellow foggy voice. It's no Slow Train Coming or Saved by any means.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
