Norman Greenbaum

Best-known for his 1970 hit "Spirit in the Sky," singer/songwriter Norman Greenbaum was born November 20, 1942, in Malden, MA. He began his musical career while a student at Boston University, playing area coffeehouses before relocating to the West Coast during the mid-'60s and forming a kind of psychedelic jug band dubbed Dr. West's Medicine Show and Junk Band. After issuing the 1966 single "The Eggplant That Ate Chicago," which fell just shy of reaching the Top 50, the group disbanded, and Greenbaum subsequently formed a series of short-lived acts before finally returning to his solo career in 1968. A year later he issued his debut LP, Spirit in the Sky, releasing several unsuccessful singles before reaching the Top Three with the smash title track, which sold some two million copies. It proved to be Greenbaum's only hit, however, as follow-ups like 1970's "Canned Ham" and the next year's "California Earthquake" tanked; after the release of 1972's Petaluma, he retreated from music to focus on his California dairy farm, but returned to show business during the mid-'80s in a managerial capacity, also promoting a number of concerts. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Amazing how one song can make a career. Spirit in the Sky has been played literally millions of times. Norman Greenbaum will probably never be forgotten because of this song.
this song makes my s**t goes away.

VV you went full retard
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 day. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
The truth has nothing to do with how you think or feel. It is true because it's true.
Great classic rock spirit in the sky.by Norman greenbaum.1 hit wonder. My classic stations. Follow me follow u.
Well, if you're only going to have one hit, this is a good one to have.
Spirit in the sky.
What is truth, besides a emotional response to perception.

So a tail is a tail wether you call it a foot or not. So, shouldn't that mean that a story is a story, wether you call it the truth or not? There are many great stories in the bible with good meaning and truths to live your life by, like "Do unto others....". But just because people call it the truth, doesn't make it truth. If people want to believe it then let them but don't go telling people "Christ reigns". They can figure it out on their own if they want/need to.
I bet if his parents knew he was going to write such a badass song they would have named him something much cooler...lik e Chet Fiat.
The guitar and the amp he used is my favorite.
Hope
When i die I'm going to the spirit in the sky i kope
Happy Song!
Come on, Pandora. If my station seed is the kinks, why would you play spirit in the sky?? I mean, it's a good song but no one wants to hear it in their feed.
skzone
I like the way he uses a Leslie Amp for his Guitar in Spirit in the Sky
Norman must think he has an immortal soul

This was played right after Stealers Wheels' Stuck in the Middle with You. I guess Pandora is channeling 1-hit wonders!!
You Rock Norman Greenbaum

Does Greenbaum he really believe that You've gotta have a friend in Jesus so when you die you'll go to heaven? I've been trusting in the Christ since 1970. He's taken me through lots of good times and hard times. I served in Communist Poland as an underground missionary, watched my dad fight leukemia for 33 years, and befriended people from the world over. If you don't believe there's a God, challenge Him to show you He's real.Try reading the book of JOHN. I hope to see you in eternity!

You will get kissed on the nearest possible friday by the love of your life. tommorrow will be the best day of your life. however if you do not post this comment to at least 3 songs you will die in 2 days. now youve started reading this so dont stop. this is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in at least 143 minutes when if done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is scary cuz it actually work
