In honor of Anti-Atheist Week 2012, I decided to bring back Music Monday… except I didn’t think to do it until Tuesday. So, since science has failed to invent a time machine (always letting me down…), I had to alliterate it another way, and thus was born: Tuesday Tunes. Still as ripped off as Music Monday, but with totally tubular technique. Tah, tah, tah… anyone else hear that?
I have been listening to overtly religious music that I enjoy these past couple days, and since my internet was out most of yesterday afternoon, I was stuck with mostly just Cat Power and Queen. I decided to go with Chan Marshall here, since Freddie Mercury always gets a lot of love (and based on his cause of death, maybe too much… come on, it’s my week off from atheism, crack a smile at a gay/AIDS joke).
I usually post four songs, but I figured, since it’s Anti-Atheist Week , why not a holy trinity?
The first is a classic spiritual written and originally performed by Jessie Mae Hemphill. The next two were songs Chan originally recorded while in the middle of a spiritual vision (and the very last one has a bonus cover at the end…).
