Baptize Your Favorite Pop Song

Another guest post from BCC’s friend S.P. Bailey.

Good pop songs are bags ready to be packed with meaning by you the listener. Witness the recent list of “the 50 greatest conservative rock songs.” Many performers who made the list were presumably horrified to get a positive mention in The National Review. (Not to worry decadent rock and roll hippies! My conservative friends still consider you both a major cause of the decline of western civilization and harbingers of the apocalypse!) Even so, the list and the accompanying justifications are surprisingly compelling.

Might we, the bloggernacle, compile a list of the 50 greatest Mormon pop/rock songs? Please comment with song titles, lyrics, and/or supporting arguments. Willful misreading is permitted and encouraged. A perfect fit is nice, but taking a line or two out of context and twisting gently is entirely legitimate.

To start with few obvious examples (I apologize for my sad 1980s electronica fixation):

Eurythmics, Missionary Man
You can fool with your brother/ But don’t mess with a missionary man. Are you kidding me? That is almost a direct quote from the White Bible. And what full-time proselyting elder didn’t sing to himself these lines at least once: Well the missionary man/ He’s got God on his side/ He’s got the saints and apostles/ Backin’ up from behind/ Black eyed looks from those Bible books/ He’s a man with a mission/ Got a serious mind.

Howard Jones, Everlasting Love
Is this love worth waiting for?/ Something special, something pure? Then you better call the scheduling office at the temple. Also, get the building coordinator on the phone–got to reserve the gym at your local ward house. By the way, my cousin rents out frilly white lattice backdrops and a variety of plastic flower arrangements (email if interested). Clearly HoJo knows that you don’t have to be a Mormon to write songs about the doctrine of eternal marriage.

Pet Shop Boys, It’s a Sin
I dedicate this song to anyone who has read Spencer W. Kimball’s The Miracle of Forgiveness, which convinced me that Everything I’ve ever done/ Everything I ever do/ Every place I’ve ever been/ Everywhere I’m going to/ It’s a sin.

U2, Where the Streets Have No Name
I’ll show you a place/ High on a desert plain/ Where the streets have no name. From beginning to end, this one is all about the Salt Lake Valley as laid out by Brigham Young et al. Blocks and blocks of streets known only by coordinates. And brimming with people who want to run and hide and tear down the walls that hold them inside.

Tears for Fears, Everybody Wants to Rule the World
As in the world or worlds you will preside over when the Lorenzo Snow couplet (much to the dismay of tedious anti-Mormon boobs) is fully realized. Not that the Lorenzo Snow couplet is fully developed doctrine that we should feel obligated to explain or defend. It’s just something marvelous to look forward to.

Comments

  1. S.P.,

    When a priesthood quorum schedules a moving project for the third Saturday in a row, the Rolling Stones’ I’ll never be your beast of burden is appropriate. Or maybe When the Whip Comes Down, by the same artists.

    I know a missionary who often sang AC/DC’s Back in Black in the morning when he put his suit on.

    Our doctrine of multiple degrees of glory is a good fit for Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven.

    The definitive Mo’ song is Wierd Al’s White & Nerdy, a rip-off of Chamillionaire’s Ridin’ Dirrrty. Youtube is your friend.

  2. The Christmas with Johnny Cash album struck me as quite the Mormon album. Some of the stuff on there sounded like it came right out of a President Monson general conference talk. I should add that despite it’s sentimentality, it also comes across as sincere and real.

  3. “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” is by Tears For Fears. [I knew that. Changed! Thanks, SPB]

    Do songs written by actual Mormons count? Like Low’s “I Am the Lamb”?

    I’ll be back after I think about this.

  4. Rush had a song that was supposedly written after the band toured Temple Square. (After Googling for a minute…) I think it was “Mission.” Sample lyrics: “I watch their images flicker/ Bringing light to a lifeless screen/ I walk through their beautiful buildings /And I wish I had their dreams.”

  5. Queen: The Prophets Song
    Oh Oh people of Earth
    Listen to the warning
    The seer he said
    Beware the storm that gathers here
    listen to the wise man…

  6. S.P. Bailey says:

    Mark IV: five superb entries!

    Danithew: Can you hear the man in black intone in his deep bass “hearts were touched, spirits were lifted, and joyful time was had by all.”

    Susan: Sure! I see no reason to exclude songs by actual members (if the songs alone are somehow arguably Mormon…)

    BTD Greg: I love it. True or not, I hope more of these song inspired by real life encounters with the church stories come out.

    Lyndsey: nice!

  7. NOFX, the Cause
    “It isn’t for the money, It Isn’t for the fame…
    …It’s a Plan, a Scam, A Diagram, for the benefiet of everyone, The Cause! We’re Just Doing it for the Cause!”

    NOFX,”Happy Guy”

    The Lyrics speak for themselves.

    “He’s just a man getting through life the best he can
    He’s a not a scientist, he programs a computer
    Before that he sold cars to pay a student loan now he receives pity
    From his family – his friends say how could he
    Turn his back on reason worshipping
    A God finding truth through fear and mind control
    He’s just a man trying to explain how
    He found the word of God could make his life seem less insane
    So he shares what he’s read, what he understands, it makes
    sense to him, it makes perfect sense to him, in fact
    He’s never seen so clearly
    Turned his back on free will – has he lost his mind?
    He’d rather kneel down than take charge of his life
    And he knows what people think, but it doesn’t sway him
    He can read the writings on the wall
    ‘Cause he knows how people treat, how they treat each other
    A sacrifice to benefit the all
    Don’t try to judge him, his theological ideas
    His hopes may be false but his happiness is real
    Don’t try to judge him, he’s just a man”

  8. Free Will by Rush. I am not sure if we really support free will, but we do like to pretend that we do.

  9. Kevin Barney says:

    In Yes’ epic Roundabout, the first chorus begins:

    In and around the lake
    Mountains come out of the sky and they
    Stand there

    Even to this day it still sounds to my ear for all the world as if they are singing “Mormons come out of the sky….” I envision an eschatological reenactment of Alma at the Waters of Mormon or something like that.

    I think Standards Night or For the Strength of Youth pamphlet would benefit by using my favorite lyric from the Smiths:

    What she asked of me at the end of the day,
    Caligula would have blushed!

  10. Prince: 7

    …There will be a new city with streets of gold
    The young so educated they never grow old

    *Sounds like celestial glory to me…

  11. Pearl Jam, Faithful (Yield):

    We’re faithful, we all believe, we all believe…

  12. U2, Where the Streets Have No Name
    I’ll show you a place/ High on a desert plain/ Where the streets have no name. From beginning to end, this one is all about the Salt Lake Valley as laid out by Brigham Young et al. Blocks and blocks of streets known only by coordinates. And brimming with people who want to run and hide and tear down the walls that hold them inside.

    Is there poison rain in Salt Lake?

  13. Last Lemming says:

    Portrait (He Knew) by Kansas is about Einstein, but it seems to me that it could just as easily be about Joseph Smith.

  14. From Low’s “The Lamb”:

    You go west
    Where they won’t find you
    With your mother’s breast
    And the poison arrows
    ‘Cuz you see black
    And I see shadows
    I am the lamb
    And I’m a dead man

    The Waterboys have a lot:

    I’ll Meet You in Heaven Again

    Some say it’s over – as if there is no more
    but death is not an ending – death is but a door
    Some call it the end of the road – but they’ve got it all wrong
    the end is a beginning
    and the road is long

    My Beautiful Guide

    When the sound of the crowd gets too damn loud
    and the pain all around starts pulling me down
    and doubt and distress put my faith to the test
    I take a deep breath
    and I turn inside
    to my Beautiful Guide

    Spirit

    Man seems
    Spirit is
    Man dreams
    Spirit lives
    Man is tethered
    Spirit is free
    What Spirit is man can be

  15. S.P. Bailey says:

    Re: poison rain in SLC. That depends on how close you live to the Energy Solutions facility! (Not to mention precipitation during temperature inversions…)

  16. Okay, here are some more:

    “Jesus Walking on the Water” by the Violent Femmes

    – This would make a nice addition to the hymnbook, I think

    “Goody Goody Two Shoes” by Adam Ant

    – “Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?”

    “Photograph” by Flock of Seagulls

    – “If I had a photograph of you, or something to remind me” could be about genealogy and the hearts of the children turning to their fathers. But mostly, I just think a band named Flock of Seagulls should be adopted by Mormons.

  17. Several years ago when my teenaged daughters would listen to the radio as we drove in the car, a song came on which I started singing to, loudly. I only knew the chorus, an inspirational one, I thought. I’m sure it would fit in with the 50 greatest Mormon pop rock songs:

    “I get knocked down but I get up again,
    You’re never going to keep me down;
    I get knocked down but I get up again,
    You’re never going to keep me down…”
    (Tubthumping by Chumbawamba)
    I felt it was the story of my life.
    My children stared at me in horror. Turned out I didn’t know the lyrics to the rest of the song:

    “Pissing the night away…
    He drinks a whisky drink
    He drinks a vodka drink
    He drinks a lager drink
    He drinks a cider drink.
    Pissing the night away…”

  18. S.P. Bailey, due to sheer laziness, I’ve left the Christmas songs on my radioblog (songs appear in alphabetical order by artist). I will get around to changing them.

    If you listen to Johnny Cash’s “Christmas As I Knew It” or “The Christmas Guest”, you’ll know what I’m talking about.

  19. Prefab Sprout on eternal marraige:

    There is a door we all walk through
    And on the other side I’ll meet you
    Reunion in the air – A cappella meets pure prayer
    Somewhere : I can’t wait to meet you there
    If there ain’t a heaven that holds you tonight
    They never sang doo-wop in Harlem

    There is a door it may seem locked
    But in a little while – Don’t be shocked
    Above the noise, behind the glare
    I know you’re listening out there – Somewhere
    Somewhere : I can’t wait to meet you there
    If there ain’t a heaven that holds you tonight
    They never sang doo-wop in Harlem

    –“Doo-wop in Harlem”

    Should have replaced that one crappy Depeche Mode song as the official last-slow-dance anthem at proms in Utah in the early 90s…

  20. Also, David Byrne’s “Cowboy Mambo” has a nice lesson on adversity. He meant it sardonically, but I like to take it straight. I’ve edited the naughty bits…

    Green grass grows around the backyard [out]house,
    And that is where the sweetest flowers bloom…
    Now we are flowers growing in God’s garden,
    And that is why he spreads the [ahem, adversity] around…

  21. I am just crazy glad that RUSH is making this list a few times, both in the article and in the comments here. Perhaps I am not alone after all.

    The have a new album about to come out….

  22. The Ultimate Law of Chastity Song

    Good Riddance, “Holding on”
    I’ve thought it through & I think you’re right
    And you’re not missing much
    There’s something pure
    That you can’t hold against a simple touch
    So many choices and the pressure
    We all bring to bear
    Your strength works miracles
    And touches those who try to care
    I believe in you
    And I hope you see it through
    Your resolve is inspiration in my life
    It takes alot now
    So few who feel the same
    When it means enough
    Not to give it away now
    Finding it hard
    Not to think in terms of yesterday
    Finding it strange
    That somebody else could feel that way
    It must be hard sometimes
    To stand behind your chastity
    And I wish that I could be the one
    But it’s not me I’ll never set you free
    Hold on because you’ve got alot to believe in

  23. Steve Evans says:

    Well, there is the entire Sufjan Stevens oeuvre…

  24. Some other good Low ones:
    “Weight of Water”:

    ake a cupful from your hand
    wait for forty days
    make a river through the sand
    til you’re called by a secret name
    and the weight of the water has brought me back to this
    just leave me to the river
    let it cleanse my face
    i have no power to ward it
    like the baptism of the earth
    and the weight of the water has brought me back to this
    and the step where you stood
    as i bleed from the wound
    how i cower to that weight
    still i’ll make this water home

    “Missouri”:

    oh, speak to me adam and eve
    oh, missouri
    oh, missouri

    “Walk Into the Sea”:

    You’ve come to me in dreams
    With all the other pretty things
    You tell me about a savior
    And how his soul goes on forever

    And time is just a hunger
    It leads itself to nothing
    When it finally takes us over
    I hope we float away together

    Yeah, time’s the great destroyer
    Leaves every child a bastard
    But when it finally takes us over
    I hope we float away together

  25. Just A tidbit on the Chubawumba (a song may of us would like to forget). The wife of my bishop in my singles ward loved that song. She thought the lyric was “kissing the night away”, we couldn’t bear to break it to her.

    Talking about Rush – I always liked “Freewill”
    “You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice.
    If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.”

  26. Steve, every time I listen to “Illinois” all the way through, I think that there may be obscure references to Joseph Smith and/or Nauvoo, but I can’t really pin them down.

  27. Also, Joan Osbourne’s “One of Us”: “What if God was one of us?”

    And Dishwalla’s “Counting Blue Cars”: “Tell me all your thoughts on God, ‘cuz I’d really like to meet her.”

  28. Steve Evans says:

    Greg, I keep looking for them too, but I can’t find them. I’m too busy trying to figure out what the Chickenmobile is.

  29. I once heard a girl mistakenly sing that Chubawumba song: “I get knocked up …”

    I kid you not. She was surprised when I started laughing … I had to explain to her what the problem was.

  30. I used to DJ youth dances after my mission and everytime I played Dead Eye Dick’s “New Age Girl”, the advisors requested that I turn down the part where they say, “She don’t eat meat, but she sure likes the bone.” Funny thing, though, was that the kids would shout out the lyrics when I turned down the sound.

  31. So much Nick Cave. For example, “Are You the One that I’ve Been Waiting For?” Consider these lyrics:

    As you’ve been moving surely toward me/My soul has comforted and assured me/That in time my heart it will reward me/And that all will be revealed

    It’s almost like the guy’s read Moroni, right? At least, ripped horribly out of context, it is…

    Or “Into My Arms,” which often sounds so much like a dialogue between a traditional believing Mormon and his/her newly liberal/questioning/doubting/whatever spouse:

    I don’t believe in an interventionist God/But I know, darling, that you do/But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him/Not to intervene when it came to you/Not to touch a hair on your head/To leave you as you are/And if He felt He had to direct you/Then direct you into my arms

    One last example, snippets from “Get Ready for Love.”

    Well, most of all nothing much/Ever really happens/And God rides high up in the ordinary sky/Until we find ourselves at our most distracted/And the miracle that was promised/Creeps quietly by…

    The mighty wave their hankies from their/High-windowed palace…

    I searched the seven seas and I’ve looked/Under the carpet/And browsed through the brochures/That govern the skies…

    The first segment seems just about to capture modern Mormon notions of revelation, doesn’t it? The second, with the hankie-waving, needs no comment, I hope. For the third, well, what other religion besides Mormonism makes it quite so plausible that there might be brochures that govern the heavens? A Celestial CHI?

  32. Thinking Over by Dana Glover (who is Southern Baptist- I checked). It was never very well known, but was used in an ad for a movie. Lyrics include:

    “Am I ready for forever?
    Oh, God, show me a sign
    ‘Cause if we’re to be together
    Then it’s got to be divine

    Father, which way should I go?
    I cannot clearly see
    Oh, I love him so
    But only you know if he’s the one for me”

  33. kristine N says:

    a friend of mine introduced me to Pixie’s Palace of the Brine:

    In a place they say is dead
    In the lake that’s like an ocean
    I count about a billion head
    All the time
    There’s a motion
    Palace of the brine
    I saw the cloning
    Of the famous family
    I heard the droning
    In the shrine
    Of the sea-monkey
    Palace of the brine
    Beneath reflections in the fountain
    The starry sky and utah mountains
    They are swimming happily
    Can’t you see
    A life that’s so sublime
    Palace of the brine.

    I may just be partial to it ’cause hey, I grow sea monkies for my research, but it is a song that always reminds me of home.

  34. The Cure “Primary”

    The innocence of sleeping children/dressed in white

  35. I’ve always thought Supertramp’s Fool’s Overture had some LDS (or at least Christian) themes:

    Called the man a fool, striped him of his pride
    Everyone was laughing up until the day he died
    And though the wound went deep
    Still he’s calling us out of our sleep
    My friends, we’re not alone
    He waits in silence to lead us all home

  36. kristine N says:

    Rob Wells? you didn’t by chance graduate in 1996, did you?

  37. Great thread.

    Being a begrudgingly aging boomer, I’ve always liked the Who’s “Bargain” about sacrificing just about anything for love: “I’d do anything to win you, sacrifice my good life for bad…I’d stand naked, stoned, and stabbed; and call it a bargain, the best I ever had.” Could be about a woman, could be about the Savior.

    Also, a gospel/county rock song by Jim Messina from Poco’s 1989 album “Legacy”, called “Look Within”.

    Some of the lyrics:

    “When you’re down, felling low,
    and your faith don’t cut it, you’ve got no place to go.
    Don’t feel sad, you’ve got a friend, look within, look within.”

    Chorus:

    “Within every soul, was born the seeds of need,
    as in the soil of the earth they are concealed.
    Prayer is the rain, that makes them all grow.
    Water them well, and they shall yield.”

  38. Pretty sure Pete Townsend has said “Bargain” is about God. I always figured he meant his own desire for God (ie, Pete is the narrator, not Christ).

  39. I like your commentary on everlasting love. Oh and make sure the building coordinator doesn’t double book the building or in my case leaves the building locked and no one had a key.

  40. How about “Instant Karma,” by John Lennon? “We all shine on, like the moon and the stars and the sun….” D&C 76 anyone?

  41. Gilgamesh says:

    I cannot believe nobody has mentioned Love and Rockets – God and Mr. Smith. The title speaks for itself. It is an intrumental that, with lyrics is called “If There’s a Heaven Above”

    Throw the world off your shoulders tonight mr. smith
    Throw the world off your shoulders tonight mr. smith

    He’s been looking now
    For a long time
    It seems the more he looks
    The less he wants to see
    He turned to the west
    For a long time
    He turned to the east
    Then he turned to the west again

    If there’s a heaven above
    In the meantime
    If there’s a heaven above
    Let it be near
    If there’s a heaven above
    In the meantime
    Then let it be near
    Let it be near to me

    We’ve been talking now
    For a long time
    It seems the more we speak
    The less we seem to say
    If there’s a hell below
    In the meantime
    Then let us shut up
    Unless we want to pray

    He saw everything real too clearly
    So close that the bones would show
    And to see everything so clearly
    Isn’t always the best thing you know

    If there’s a heaven above
    In the meantime
    If there’s a heaven above
    Then let it be near
    If there’s a heaven above
    In the meantime
    Let it be near, let it be near to me

    Ahhhh
    Ahhhh

    Throw the world off your shoulders tonight mr. smith
    Throw the world off your shoulders tonight mr. smith

  42. Then there’s the obvious ones:

    Jesus is Just Alright With Me

    by the Doobie Brothers (which was always a little hard for me to accept when I was a kid, becuase pot and Jesus never went very well together in my mind) and

    Spirit in the Sky

    by Norman Greenbaum (I think of these lyrics every time I read Lamoni’s questions to Ammon about the Great Spirit).

  43. It’s tempting to start thinking of all the church dance songs (Forever Young by Alphaville, Come On Eileen by Dexy’s Midnight Runners).

    I remember wishing that someone would complain about the music I listened to so I could point them at the Truth’s “Spread A Little Sunshine” The song’s all about it’s title.

    Does Depeche Mode’s Blasphemous Rumours count since I thought some of the key lyrics were “I think that God’s got a sixth sense of humor and when I die I expect to find him loving”?

    I find myself going through my music collection trying to find a way to make Oingo Boingo count (Wild Sex in the Working Class just resisted all twisting to a gospel theme ;)

    How about Talking Heads (Nothing but) Flowers as a metaphor for the progress of the earth to its paradisaical glory

    “Here we stand
    Like an Adam and an Eve
    Waterfalls
    The Garden of Eden
    Two fools in love
    So beautiful and strong
    The birds in the trees
    Are smiling upon them
    From the age of the dinosaurs
    Cars have run on gasoline
    Where, where have they gone?
    Now, it’s nothing but flowers”

  44. Brad Kramer says:

    Admittedly far from the expected suggestion, but nonetheless:

    Tool, “Lateralus”:

    “To feel inspired
    To fathom the power
    To witness the beauty
    To bathe in the fountain
    To swing on the spiral of
    Our divinity and
    Still be Human”

    Tool, “Right in Two”:
    “Angels on the sideline
    Puzzled and amused
    Why did Father give these humans free will
    Now they’re all confused

    Don’t these talking monkeys know that
    Eden has enough to go around?
    Plenty in this holy garden
    Silly monkeys, where there’s one they’re
    Bound to divide it
    Right in two…

    Angels on the sideline
    Baffled and confused
    Father blessed them all with reason
    And this is what they choose…

    How they survive so misguided is a mystery
    Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability to
    Lift an eye to heaven conscious of his fleeting time here”

    Tool, “Reflection”:
    “And in my darkest moment
    Feeble and weeping,
    The moon tells me her secret
    My confidant:

    As full and bright as I am
    This light is not my own
    A million light reflections
    Pass over me
    The Source is bright and endless
    She resuscitates the hopless
    Without Her we are lifeless satellites
    Drifting

    And as I pull my head out
    I am without one doubt
    Don’t want to stay down here
    Serving my narcissism
    I must crucify the ego
    Before it’s far too late
    I pray the light lifts me out

    So crucify the ego
    Before its far too late
    To leave behind this place so
    Negative and blind and cynical

    And you will come to find
    That we are all one mind
    Capable of all that’s
    Imagined and all conceivable”

  45. Eric N. : I can’t wait for the new Rush! There are many of us! ;) I quoted “mission” at my missionary farewell. I’m not sure I buy the temple square story, I’d like to see a source for that tidbit, but the song sure fits…

    Low also have a new album coming out called Drums and Guns that I’m excited about. Very excited.

    My contribution here will be “Randy Described Eternity” by Built to Spill, one of my favorite songs of all time:

    “every thousand years
    this metal sphere
    ten times the size of Jupiter
    floats just a few yards past the earth
    you climb on your roof
    and take a swipe at it
    with a single feather
    hit it once every thousand years
    `til you’ve worn it down
    to the size of a pea
    yeah I’d say that’s a long time
    but it’s only half a blink
    in the place you’re gonna be

    where you gonna be
    where will you spend eternity
    I’m gonna be perfect from now on
    I’m gonna be perfect starting now
    stop making that sound
    stop making that sound
    I will say I forgot it
    but it was only yesterday
    and it’s all you had to say”

  46. U2, One Tree Hill: “You run like river, on like a sea / You run like a river runs to the sea”

    1 Ne. 2:9: “And when my father saw that the waters of the river emptied into the fountain of the Red Sea, he spake unto Laman, saying: O that thou mightest be like unto this river, continually running into the fountain of all righteousness!”

  47. Kristine, I certainly did. Is the N for Nielsen?

  48. Space Chick says:

    “Immigrant Song” by Led Zeppelin to describe how the lost tribes will descend from the north at the final battle:

    Ah, ah,
    We come from the land of the ice and snow,
    From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
    The hammer of the gods
    Will drive their ships to new lands,
    To fight the horde, singing and crying:
    Valhalla, I am coming!
    On we sweep with threshing oar,
    Our only goal will be the western shore.

    Ah, ah,
    We come from the land of the ice and snow,
    From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
    How soft your fields so green,
    Can whisper tales of gore,
    Of how we calmed the tides of war.
    We are your overlords.
    On we sweep with threshing oar,
    Our only goal will be the western shore.

    So now you’d better stop and rebuild your ruins,
    For peace and trust can win the day
    Despite all your losing.

    And “Gold Rush Brides” from 10,000 Maniacs for the pioneer women:

    Follow the typical signs, the hand-painted lines, down prairie roads. Pass the lone church spire. Pass the talking wire from where to who knows? There’s no way to divide the beauty of the sky from the wild western plains. Where a man could drift, in legendary myth, by roaming over spaces. The land was free and the price was right.
    Dakota on the wall is a white-robed woman, broad yet maidenly. Such power in her hand as she hails the wagon man’s family. I see Indians that crawl through this mural that recalls our history.
    Who were the homestead wives? Who were the gold rush brides? Does anybody know? Do their works survive their yellow fever lives in the pages they wrote? The land was free, yet it cost their lives.
    In miner’s lust for gold. a family’s house was bought and sold, piece by piece. A widow staked her claim on a dollar and his name, so painfully. In letters mailed back home her Eastern sisters they would moan as they would read accounts of madness, childbirth, loneliness and grief.
    Who were the homestead wives? Who were the gold rush brides? Does anybody know? Do their works survive their yellow fever lives in the pages they wrote? The land was free, yet it cost their lives.
