Seal Sings A Psalm!

What do you get when you mix Seal’s voice, a jazz band, a full orchestra, and a drum kit, coupled with lyrics like the one’s in this song? Well, when you place all that under the portrait of Our Lord in the banner above, you get a modern day love Psalm.

At least that’s how I hear it.

If I was putting together a contemporary musical à la Godspell, this song would work great for the St. John the Baptist part, no? Or in another scene, maybe the character of St. Paul after his encounter on the road to Damascus and Ananias heals his blindness.

Happy Friday!

    So true! Thanks for sharing that. I love the Sara McLachlan version of the prayer of St. Francis. Check it out.

      Will do. I’m thinking this tune works better with the St. Paul character rather that the Baptist, now that I’m listening to it closer. Great song, ain’t it?

  • Lisa Julia

    Very nice…reminds me of some of Steve Winwood’s work.

      Indeed. Like!

    I’m impressed. I never really paid attention to Seal. I’ll have to look up more of his work.

      One of these days, the archives will be aboard. Until then, I’ll keep dipping into YIMCatholic 1.0, where you’ll find this.
