WHY SHOULD THE DEVIL HAVEALL THE GOOD MUSIC? (2) — 8 Comments

  1. I’m glad you reposted this since I finally came up with some ideas.

    Have a little faith in me: John Hiatt
    I used to worry: Delbert McClinton & Francine Reed
    Hold On: Sarah McLachlan
    Love Me Like a Rock: Paul Simon
    The Afterlife: also Paul Simon
    Orphan Girl: Gillian Welch
    The Road I Took to You: which is by Barbara Keith, but I love Lorraine Ellison’s performance

    If I think of any more, I’ll post ’em.

  2. The Devil has all the bad music – haven’t you heard any of these fundy “Christian” rockers? Justin Bieber is a little fundy, himself.

    God gets the good music.

    wv: prometal – I was in my youth, but my tastes have mellowed. Death metal is interesting sometimes, though.

  3. Pete Townshend Parvardigar (I put this on your FB page). I vote also for Mister Mister’s Kyrie. There’s also Karl Jenkin’s The Protector and who can forget Bobby McFerrin’s The 23rd Psalm. Anything by the Miserable Offenders is good.

  4. Here’s my nomination:
    From Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim, two songs from the last part of the show- “No One is Alone” and “Children Will Listen”. Some lyrics:

    “Sometimes people leave you
    halfway through the wood.
    Others may deceive you.
    You decide what’s good.
    You decide alone.
    But no one is alone.” (No One is Alone)

    “Careful the things you say
    Children will listen
    Careful the things you do
    Children will see and learn
    Children may not obey, but children will listen” (Children Will Listen)

    In the context of the show, they’re oddly consoling, even though the words are more about questions and uncertainty; or one could say, expectations low, but hope is high.

    cheers from Boston – Joan

  5. No, it wasn’t on Mark’s blog – I have two computers side by side. I play the music on one, and go to the other to read blogs. Actually, the OCICBW…music is the soundtrack to my life. : )
