    *Lyrics*

    When I die and they lay me to rest
    Gonna go to the place that's the best
    When I lay me down to die
    Goin' up to the spirit in the sky

    Goin' up to the spirit in the sky
    That's where I'm gonna go when I die
    When I die and they lay me to rest
    Gonna go to the place that's the best

    Prepare yourself, you know it's a must
    Gotta have a friend in Jesus
    So you know that when you die
    He's gonna recommend you to the spirit in the sky

    Gonna recommend you to the spirit in the sky
    That's where you're gonna go when you die
    When you die and they lay you to rest
    You're gonna go to the place that's the best

    Never been a sinner, I never sinned
    I got a friend in Jesus
    So you know that when I die
    He's gonna set me up with the spirit in the sky

    Oh, set me up with the spirit in the sky
    That's where I'm gonna go when I die
    When I die and they lay me to rest
    I'm gonna go to the place that's the best

    Go to the place that's the best

    I don't mean to be disrepectful, but the quality of this video is as bad as the others. Just a different shade of awful, that's all. Hopefully someday someone will locate the master tape.

    Since it was made so long ago, i doubt the actual video quality will get much better but yeah i'm with you on that, but unfortunately i couldn't do much with the video except make it 16:4 and edit the colours so that it didn't look like it'd been stained with a tea bag (like the other videos do) .. but it now looks like it's been through a video laundry and is clean again. Only the sound was remastered, i hope you have plug-in speakers so you can hear the difference..

    What you'd need is not a tape, but a roll of film to finally get a decent telecine from it.

  • Spirit in the Sky Norman Greenbaum HD Lyrics on screen

    Spirit in the Sky - Norman Greenbaum with lyrics on screen

    Set to be a “religious-Rock” song, Jewish Norman Greenbaum used “Jesus” thinking (correctly) that it would be more marketable this way…he was right. In his own words – “I’m just some Jewish musician who really dug Gospel music. I decided there was a larger Jesus Gospel market out there than a Jehovah one.”

    The singers take on the song –

    “It appeals to one’s inner self and the need for redemption, plus, heck, who wants to go to hell?”

    Spirit in the Sky is a song written and originally recorded[4] by Norman Greenbaum and released in late 1969. The single sold two million copies from 1969 to 1970 and reached number three in the U.S. Billboard chart (April 18, 1970) where it listed for 15 weeks in the Top 100. Billboard ranked the record as the No. 22 song of 1970. It also climbed to number one on the UK, Australian and Canadian charts in 1970. Rolling Stone ranked Spirit in the Sky No. 333 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. The song was featured on the 1969 album of the same name.

    He was inspired to write the song after watching Porter Wagoner on TV singing a gospel song. Greenbaum later said: I thought, 'Yeah, I could do that,' knowing nothing about gospel music, so I sat down and wrote my own gospel song. It came easy. I wrote the words in 15 minutes.

    The sound is an innovative and compelling combination of gospel and psychedelic rock music, with loud drums, distorted electric guitar, clapping hands, and tambourines. The production team brought in the Stovall Sisters, an Oakland-based gospel trio, to sing backing vocals. Because of its unusual lyrics and style, the record company was initially reluctant to issue it, but was finally released as a single after two other singles from the album had poor sales. Spirit in the Sky became a worldwide hit, and was at the time the best-selling single ever for the Reprise label.

    Lyrics to Spirit in the Sky

    When I die and they lay me to rest
    Gonna go to the place that's the best
    When I lay me down to die
    Goin' up to the spirit in the sky
    Goin' up to the spirit in the sky
    That's where I'm gonna go when I die
    When I die and they lay me to rest
    Gonna go to the place that's the best.

    Prepare yourself you know it's a must
    Gotta have a friend in Jesus
    So you know that when you die
    He's gonna recommend you
    To the spirit in the sky
    Gonna recommend you
    To the spirit in the sky
    That's where you're gonna go when you die
    When you die and they lay you to rest
    You're gonna go to the place that's the best.

    Never been a sinner I never sinned
    I got a friend in Jesus
    So you know that when I die
    He's gonna set me up with
    The spirit in the sky
    Oh set me up with the spirit in the sky
    That's where I'm gonna go when I die
    When I die and they lay me to rest
    I'm gonna go to the place that's the best
    Go to the place that's the best.

    Jigsaw - a heavy psych masterpiece from this West-coast group that featured Norman Greenbaum. This appeared in 1968 on the B side of Bullets La Verne, but sank into obscurity. Nothing much else was heard from Norman until Spirit in the Sky went global at the turn of the decade, but these songs from earlier years are great listening.

    Gondoliers, Shakespeares, Overseers, Playboys & Bums - one of the mid-sixties recordings from this eclectic bunch that featured Norman Greenbaum. This song was reissued in 1970 following the success of Spirit in the Sky, but failed to dent the charts. Great sound - great decade.
