Spirit in the Sky ๐ŸŽถ

Jewish Atheist here, but yep I love this fun, upbeat song by Norman Greenbaum, also Jewish, who listened to some Gospel music in 1969 and thought hey I could write a song like that. And so he did and it became a monster hit. โญ๏ธ

Funny side note. I read Jennifer Crusie’s Welcome to Temptation around Y2K and thought hey I too could write a sexy fun contemporary romance novel in a similar irreverent snarky voice. And so I did and nothing happened. ๐Ÿ™„

Here’s the song.

These songs are for Bee’s month of music prompts. ๐ŸŒน

    For a Jewish boy, Norman Greenbaum’s
    career had several unusual reincarnations๐Ÿ˜Ž
