I really never understood why gospel music was the genre of choice in a movie about Greek Mythology...

In Greek theatre, (which, by the way, was the first society to incorporate music into theatre productions) a chorus of singing people would narrate everything, so I guess what would be a better way than have sassy black women being a part of that chorus?

Well yeah, it's not even close, but it's set in Ancient Greece. Gospel music is a black american music that stemmed from African tradition. I just can't figure out why it was the music style of choice, there's zero connection.

Maybe I'm just overanalyzing, but its seriously always bothered me.

I think it just fits the movie and the style they were going for. I know it doesn't make sense but I like it though that is just my opinion.

Well, can't argue with that. It's just always been that mental itch of mine every time I see it.
