In honor of this here holiday, here are some of my favorite songs with references to Jesus or related events or persons.
- Going to Marrakesh by the Extra Glenns
"Our love is like Jesus, but worse: though you seal the cave up where you've lain its body, it rises."
- Citrus by the Holdy Steady
"Lost in fog and love and faithless fear, I've had kisses that make Judas seem sincere."
- Wooden Boy by the Huntsville Space and Rocket Center (this is a rather dark and incomplete video that I took of them performing the song in 2008)
"Can't stop now cuz it's Easter, and God brought me beer and rum."
- the Transfiguration by Sufjan Stevens
