Sounds like somebody's got a case of the Mondays.

They do "love the Lordy." Now I know the true reason my church has not been growing as fast as some others: We're not spinning anything, which we should be if Jesus spins us right round, baby, right round, like a record, baby. We need a "Holy Ghost Ho-Down" apparently to start a "love train." Incidentally, when did waving one's hands in the air become the international sign of apathy? (HT Vitamin Z)

Whoop! I don't think that was the intended effect, but I imagine you're not alone.

Hey Gunny and reepicheep,

You guys don't think this is what Isaiah heard in Chapter 6? I think this is heavens theme music! LOL!!!

Round, Round, Round, like a record, round, round! LOL!!!!

you know.. as theologically inept as this song is, it gets stuck in my head everytime I hear it..
No joke, I looked for the real version of the song & he actually sounds better than the real version.

& I really don't like the Holy Ghost ho-down part.

Lionel, regrettably, I couldn't make it to the concert. Bad bull for me.

Oh, not only do I not think this is what Isaiah heard, I also doubt Moses was spinning his sandals as he jumped up and down in front of the burning bush.

Samurai, you're quite welcome, brother. Who loves ya, baby?

Kyle, that is some catchy slooge, isn't it? I think I watched the video about 93 times for the comic relief, but then I couldn't get the tune out of my head either!

I had never seen the original until Rev posted it in response to this one. I'm even more disturbed this was picked for a cover sung to Jesus than I was beforehand.
