If Wittertainment can have a clergy corner, then so can Record Rewind Play.
The Smiths - Vicar in a Tutu
It’s not strange, he just wants to live his life this way…
Mansun - Stripper Vicar
I was worried so I went to see the vicar
But before I could confess
He first confessed to be a stripper
Black Grape - Reverend Black Grape
Let us worship in the church of Bez.
Reverend and the Makers - Silence is Talking
Hozier - Take Me To Church
You might know this one. You might, in fact, already hate this one by now. You may well feel you’ve had enough of it’s ubiquity. And yet here I come, charging into battle when the dead and cost are already being counted, full of fresh enthusiasm for an incredible vocal performance and glorious melody.
The Church - Tantalized
You might not know this one. In truth I’ve only recently been turned on to the jangly charms of The Church. Taken from their 1985 album Heyday, Tantalized is a kinetic whirl of guitars, that particularly antipodean vocal delivery and bold stabs of brass. This live rendition somehow offers up nine frenetic minutes of musical epiphany.
Here endeth the lesson.
