’cause I’d really like to meet her

Standard

So, Husband got me an MP3 player for Christmas.  It’s wonderful, but only [only!] holds around 100 songs.  This has forced me to be very particular as to what makes it onto my hit list.

I’ve noticed a trend, people.

Dear God – Sarah McLachlan
One of Us – Joan Osbourn
Counting Blue Cars – Dishwalla
Hallelujah – Leonard Cohen
Hallelujah – Martin Sexton
God: John Lennon
God: Part II – U2
In the Sun – Joseph Arthur
Spirit in the Sky – Norman Greenbaum

Not necessarily religious songs per se, or even songs that represent my own faith, but songs where the artist mentions their personal opinions/thoughts/beliefs in The Almighty.

Huh.

So what’s your favourite God Song?

About Angela

My name is Angela. I am a 28 year old psych and criminology graduate, but I'd rather not diagnose you. I am a cuddle-slut. I can recite the entire script of The Princess Bride, (including accents) and believe that the meaning of life is contained within. Polyanna, Snap.com commercials, and Oprah 'reunion shows' make me cry. I can whistle and hum at the same time, but I cannot touch my toes. I am an expert in both listening and talking. I look good in orange. I am a writer. I kick ass in Gin, Hearts, and Cribbage but I don't understand Canasta or Bridge. I can be heard singing Broadway numbers from my shower, and have dressed up as a viking princess, (complete with aluminum foil breast plate) The Phantom of the Opera, and a Ghostbuster for Hallowe'en. I have a bird named Bean. I have a brother named Adam. They are not related. I like vanilla body lotion, peanut butter, saunas, Jim Carrey, broccoli, pets, TheOnion.com, Muppets, Kevin Smith, Corelle dishes, dry erase white-boards, Barenaked Ladies, Philosophy, the letter J, Harry Potter, picture frames, swimming, quilting, Michael Moore, genealogy, Raggedy Anne, tacky 50's tchotchke, 'Idiot's Complete Guide To' books, tweezers, feather pillows, polar dips, aquariums, Martin Luther King Jr., and Dr. Pepper. I don't like meat, gossips, cooked carrots, American Idol, mosquitoes, sweating, politics, public washrooms, tardiness, tuition, hunting, pat answers, pick up lines, brown bananas, cliches, pine scented air freshener, Kevin Costner, bacon, candied apples, pro-wrestling, humidity, and hypocrisy. Books I've read recently The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Dark Tower, When Nietzsche Wept, What's So Amazing About Grace?, Catcher in the Rye, Not Wanted On the Voyage, The Red Tent, The Little Prince, The Way the Crow Flies, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Poisonwood Bible, The Fall, The Knot of Vipers, Calculating God, The Chrysalids, Sick Puppy, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Franny and Zooey, The Brothers Karamazov, and jPod. I am slightly neurotic. No I'm not. Yes I am.

  1. The Call by Ralph Vaughan Williams (I’ll sing it for you some time.) and … too many others.

    Pie Jesu:

    Pie Jesu Domine = sweet lord jesus
    Dona eis requiem = give/grant them peace/rest
    Dona eis requiem sempiternam = give/grant them eternal/everlasting peace/rest

    • Thanks for the recommendation and the translation.

      It’s one of those songs I’ve sung without knowing what the heck I was saying.

      Good thing is wasn’t something blasphemous.
