JUDAS!

I don’t believe you…

You’re a liar…

Play fucking loud

Lady Gaga made some noise with her new song, Judas.  This time of year is supposed to be about the resurrection of Christ, at least for Christians.  On this day, the Bible says he died.  He was betrayed by Judas, a disciple.  But was Judas following god’s plan?  Judas and Jesus is a classic story of friendship and betrayal.  This relation has been the topic of many good songs, everyone feels a little inflated about themselves, everyone feels like we’ve got our own personal Judas, someone who betrayed us but how often is it the other way around?  How often are we the ones in need of redemption?

I’ll tell you something
Things you never had you’ll never miss
Tell you something else, a brave man will kill you with a sword
A coward with a kiss

Sunday Morning Spirituals

I don’t think of myself as a religious person, nor am I much of an atheist.  I don’t often find inspiration from long drawn out sermons or readings of particularly holy books.  I do however find great inspiration when a person creates a spiritual masterpiece of music.

For a long time, Christian music has produced some beautiful works.  Olden hymns, embodied best by “Amazing Grace” have long served as guidance for people seeking a great discovery.  The earliest recordings were often spiritual in nature and many musicians have had to balance faith and career, at various times facing popular pressure.

I do have an Ipod filled with a good amount of Stanley Brothers material.
