One of the benefits of my eclectic musical taste is that every now and then I come across a CD in my collection that I had forgotten I had. Sometimes there's a reason I have forgotten said album or single - it's crap. Sometimes though it is good to revisit the stuff we used to be in to - for the memories and feelings they provoke.
The other day I came across an old Genesis album "We Can't Dance" and it provoked a lot of memories - but in particular were two songs off that album that I remember as being basically my first introduction to the idea that gods, religion and faith might all be utter bollocks, since up until then I had been raised as a Catholic and was still at Catholic school and very much a believer, albeit not devout.
Jesus He Knows Me
got to love mainstream ragging on televangelists and Phil Collins predicting the downfall of Ted Haggard 19 years ago!
Tell Me Why
Not a great recording unfortunately but not a bad song either - and raises the question if there is a God why all the suffering?
And just one more from my favourite band. Here's where I got the name of the blog from:
There Goes God
All three of these helped lead me to where I am today. Feel free to add your own in the comments.
