Crazy Blessed Assurance Train

Is it just me, or can you totally fit the words to the hymn “Blessed Assurance” to the music of “Crazy Train”?

On a not unrelated note, last weekend we got to hear a wonderful performance by Rachel Barton Pine, who, in addition to being a phenomenal classical violinist, also plays crossover renditions of heavy metal songs on the violin. Here’s a medley that is available on YouTube which includes “Crazy Train” and “Paranoid”:

    Ah, following in the footsteps of Apocalyptica. I also remember Nigel Kennedy doing a medley of Jimi Hendrix stuff on his violin on a BBC children’s programme, many years ago.
