31 October 2013 - Doctor and the Medics - Spirit In The Sky

Despite not being religious hippies like Norman Greenbaum, Doctor and the Medics did a really faithful cover of this song, a Christian classic.  Their goth look now makes this song more appropriate for Halloween than church. 

Their earnest performance makes the song - which I just told you a faithful cover of the faithful original - more associated with them than Norman Greenbaum - it's a better known song now because of Doctor and the Medics.  Of course, it also gave them their only real U.S. exposure and their only U.K. chart hit, where it was a #1 smash.
