Don't read this. You will be kissed by the love of your life on the nearest Friday. Don't stop this is freaky. But if you read this and ignore it you will have bad luck. Put this on 10 songs in the next 143 minutes and when you are done press the space bar and your crush's name will appear on the screen. This is freaky actually works

Such a classic, I remember hearing this from when I was a boy. Spirit in the Sky is totally awesome, an amazing jam, and so... true! Gotta have a friend in Jesus. And people of America, this is who we all today still do need. I know I do! So get right with the man upstairs! What about it my friends on Pandora? This song rocks! And so is Jesus, he is The Rock! And the way and the truth, and the light! Amen!! Rock on my sisters and brothers! Rock on!
