Queen Jesus

Queen Jesus September 26, 2013

One key question: How did I not know about this song by Queen until now – or did I know about it and somehow forget? Another key question: Can we do this song in church sometime? (The issue, as far as that is concerned, is less “Will this meet with approval?” and more “Do we have anyone who can play the guitar solo?”)

And then maybe eventually we can also do “The Prophet's Song“?

And “All God's People“?

Perhaps it is unsurprising that, as a religion professor, I knew that Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara) was from a Parsi (Zoroastrian) background, yet have serious gaps in my knowledge of Queen's repertoire. I'm ashamed to say that, despite their being such an important band, I've mostly known Queen's hits and little else. I clearly need to listen to more!
