What makes Christian music "Christian"?

Some interesting thoughts from Brent Thomas on Christian music and why so much junk is peddled under that banner.

So...are you suggesting we just stop listening to music altogether because 90% of the secular music does not have content that I want in my head, and the rest I hate. Soemtimes I just want a good song with a hard beat. Does that have to be steeped in theology? I used to go to secular concerts where the songs glorified everything lustful, and now I go to "christian" concerts and can enjoy the same kind of music, yet it's clean. Is that wrong? I don't go to hear a sermon on predestination, I went to have fun; fun that wouldn't compromise my morals or pollute my mind. I'm not advocating these songs be in church;a place of worship. But for me personally...why not?
