It's Night Time In the Big City

Easter Playlist

Some spiritual, and not so spiritual, music for this time of year.


  1. As you may know, St Paul wrote to the Phillipians "If there be therefore any consolation, any comfort any fellowship, and mercies, fulfil ye my joy by not arguing about the relative merits of Spotify as against other on-line music sharing software."

    For people who can't get it, the songs in the above list are:

    Stand Up For Judas - Leon Rosselson
    By and By - Chumbawamba
    Let the Mystery Be - Iris DeMent
    A Pilgrims Way - Peter Bellamy
    Passing Through - Pete Seegaer
    Jesus Christ - Woody Guthrie
    Friday Morning - Timothy, Revelator
    The Country Boy - Jake Thackray
    Were You There When They Crucified My Lord - Johnny Cash
    Christ For President - Billy Bragg/Wilco
    When The Ship Comes In - Bob Dylan
    The Trimdon Grange Disaster - Martin Carthy
    John Ball - Grace Notes
    The Good Friday Magic - Richard Wagner

  2. What a great list. The Country Boy may be the greatest religious song ever written, despite having its melody nicked from Heroes & Villains by the Beach Boys. "Living her life between the scandalised fist and the beckoning finger" and "Clinging to life with hands that had always been empty" always get me...
