    Default Fast, Upbeat, Energetic Worship Songs?

    I lead worship for a youth group and they really like to worship with fast music. However, there aren't many to choose from. It seems most "modern" songs are mid-tempo, 2 verses, a chorus, and a bridge, in the key of B, and very mellow. I like these songs and so do they, but they don't get into them much. Any requests for fast, upbeat, energetic worship songs?
    I have:
    Every Move I Make
    Trading My Sorrows
    Counting on God
    Happy Day
    Be Glorified
    and probably a few more that I can't think of off the top of my head.

    Fast songs are always the hardest to find!

    Here are some I love:
    My Future Decided - Hillsong United
    Awesome Is the Lord Most High - Chris Tomlin
    Beautiful One - Tim Hughes
    There is No One Like You - David Crowder Band
    Here Is Our King - David Crowder Band
    O Praise Him - David Crowder Band
    Holding Nothing Back - Jesus Culture
    All Because of Jesus - Fee

    A simple key change will make them more suited to your voice.

    I really like Kristian Stanfill's upbeat material. Try Alive & Running and Say, Say.

    I have to change the key most of the time because I'm an alto and most worship artists it seems are high tenors. G and E are the main keys I sing in. And yeah the fast ones are hard to find! Well, the ones that don't sound cheesy that is. We do All Because of Jesus in big church on Sunday mornings. I should do that one. And David Crowder is awesome.

    I tried Solid Rock one week and it didn't go over very well. And it wasn't just because it was a new song... I'm not sure what happened. They just didn't like it I guess. Everlasting God is a good one. We do My Savior Lives on Sunday mornings as well. I should get that one going too.

    Thanks guys!

    Fast isn't always as fast as we think it is. Dynamics play a huge part, so you can probably get away with slower stuff if you've got a real driving rhythm.

    Just a tidbit, plenty of songs listed here.

    I completely agree with that. And most of the time that's what ends up happening. I like to play with dynamics and contrast, but sometimes speed just can't be changed. I've tried and failed horribly haha but there are ways to make it work.
