"Wave of Sorrow (Birdland)"

"Where now the Emperor Menelik/and the Queen of Sheba's gold" -- the Queen of Sheba's visit to King Solomon is recorded in 1 Kings 10. Ethiopian tradition has it that the Ethiopian Emperor Menelik was the son of the Queen of Sheba and King Solomon.

"Oh son of the shepherd boy now king/What wisdom can you bring" -- the shepherd boy is King David, his son is King Solomon; the story of how Solomon attained his great wisdom is found in 1 Kings 3.

"Blessed are the meek who scratch in the dirt/For they shall inherit what's left of the earth" -- this section echoes the wording of the Beatitudes, Matthew 5:3-10 (a sample: "Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.")

"They are blessed in this valley of dry bones" – a reference to the vision of Ezekiel recorded in Ezekiel 37:1-3: "The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, "Son of man, can these bones live?" I said, "O Sovereign LORD, you alone know."

velvet underground( Lou Reed )

. In het nummer “Teach the gifted children” geeft hij een hele opsomming van dingen die we de begenadigde kinderen moeten leren. En welke dingen zijn dat: dat ze genadig moeten zijn, dat ze oog moeten hebben voor de schoonheid van bijvoorbeeld natuurverschijnselen en dat ze moeten leren omgaan met woede.

Geheel persoonlijk wordt hij als hij zingt: ‘En breng me bij de rivier, en doe me in het water’, en dan weer in de derde persoon: ‘zegen ze, en vergeef ze vader, want ze weten gewoon niet beter’, een citaat van Jezus aan het kruis.
Van Morrison (duet met Cliff Richard)


  1. “Whenever God shines His light” ,2) “When will I ever learn to live in God” (2 sterk overtuigende gospels kunnen zo in een kerk gezongen worden).

W.A.S.P ( hebben getoured met metallica etc. de naam in shockrock)

the big WASP hits: "L.O.V.E. Machine," "Animal," "Chainsaw Charlie," and our personal favorite, "Wild Child. ... ( frontman Blackie Lawless is christen geworden).

From ink music magazine “Blackie goes on to share more of his spiritual background, and it’s had some interesting turns. “I was ‘born again’ when I was eleven, and I went to church because I wanted to. No one was making me. But then at the end of my teens, I got disenchanted with it, with the institution of the church. I started studying the occult, and eventually I was a full-blown, practicing member of an occult church.  But after some time, I realized that I had just traded in one organized religion for another. Turned out, I wasn’t really mad at God. I was mad at the institutionalization of God. So, I started studying for myself started reading the Scriptures on my own. And that’s what I am now, nondenominational you could say. I was talking to Alice Cooper [also a converted and devout Christian] about this at a show we did, about getting back to the Scriptures themselves. He put it this way: that’s where the rubber hits the road, man! I like that.”

nr. Babylon’s burning : zeven zegels, het nummer 666, merktekens. Het hele lied is opgebouwd uit teksten uit Openbaringen.

Openbaringen 14:8-11 gaat over de val van Babylon en over merktekenen etc. Openbaringen 15:17-21 gaat over het uitgieten van de zevende schaal en de aardbeving die de stad in drieen splijt. Op het scherm komt Hitler voorbij en een aantal politieke leiders Ahmedjinidad (iran),arafart, Saddam Hussein, Putin(rusland).
White Stripes:

Get behind me satan: titel verwijst naar de terechtwijzing die Petrus krijgt als hij Jezus van zijn lijden en sterven probeert te weerhouden.
