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

This will be played at my funeral visitation and at the funeral itself. Along with other songs of this type - spiritual is better than religion any day.

AWSOME SONG..NORMAN YOU ROCK

always thought the song was a tongue-in-ch e e k poke at christian contemporary music. prob. nobody more surprised than Norman Greenbaum when it became a hit.
Every time I hear it I think of the sandlot lol
While he may have been a 'one shot wonder' it is a pretty good shot.

Such a great song and has always made me feel so much better!!
i'm always fascinated with one hit wonders... you listen to some of their other material and it is - to be kind - just awful...but then they come up with something magical and almost perfect and you think how did this happen.
this was a big hit in NYC on WABC-AM radio circa '70-71. and since we live in a universe where a guy named norman greenbaum can write a Praise song that still brings joy to people of all colors and creeds four decades later I still believe we can all love one another----- p l u s , you have to dig the use of a Leslie amp :-)
They played this at my mother in laws funeral. Didn't get it. She didn't like rock and roll she eas a country fan all the way
Spirit in the Sky was one of the tracks on the radio ban-list on 9/11
along with every Rage track... funny how they were so prepared with that specific list huh?
So cool !!!

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.
