Sonseed: Jesus Is A Friend Of Mine

This amazingly catchly little 80’s ska ditty is making its way through YouTube like wildfire, and it’s easy to see why.  There are lots of people who claim it’s false- saying it was created as a joke in the first place, and isn’t actually from the 1980s at all.  There are also claims that no religious program in their right mind would have allowed a band to sing such lyrics as:

Once I tried to run,
I tried to run and hide.
But Jesus came and found me,
and He touched me deep inside.
He is like a mountie,
He always gets his man.
And He’ll zap you any way he can.

Zap!

Yow!

But who cares?  It’s hysterically funny in a campy sorta way… and you have to love it just for that.

TheBadMonkey, a friend on Plurk, shared this video with everyone, and in a matter of seconds I was 10 years old again. I swear it’s groovier and more wonderful than I even remembered it:

And my favorite segment from “Great Space Coaster,” Gary Gnu. No Gnews is Good Gnews!
