do any other jewish white guys sound funkier than norman greenbaum? no, and i'm a jewish white guy so i know about these things. i hope no one is offended by my confession. but, what the hell, i've already pushed the Post button so i'm stuck with it. and anyway, you don't know my address.

I don't consider anyone a one hit wonder. Just to get to the point to receive air play is a tremendous milestone. Artist that gets that far,would have many fans. Don't accept shallow thinking. Consider how much talent would be required for just getting airplay. If the person saying one hit wonder had such an accomplishme n t , they would consider statement an insult. Just saying

I've loved this song for 50 years. wow! that means i'm really, shall we say, getting on in years. or to be blunt, old. 50 years before i was born, they were just about to invent the automobile and the airplane. i believe that in your lifetime men and women will be going to mars. whether there will be an earth for them to return to is still very much up in the air (just like the airplanes being invented 50 years before i was born.)

Either you like it or you don't. Snide comments do nothing but show your hypocrisy. Tune elsewhere.

If all you get is one hit, then Spirit In The Sky by Norman Greenbaum is the way to go. Back in the day smoking weed, drinking wine and talking sh*t to a hot hippy girl. Sweet.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will be injured ( but you won't die) in two days. Now that you started this so don't stop. Post this on at least five songs in the next 143 minutes. When your done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works.

AWESOME SONG

Spirit in the Sky is a great song and a shame that Norman Greenbaum didn't have more success. Any time you we are here this it makes you want to light up, kick back and look for that hippie girl you always wanted to hook up with.
