I was driving in the car today. A rare occurance - since I work (all my jobs) from home, I just don't get out enough.
I hardly ever play the radio at home, but always do in the car.
And I heard a song I had forgotten all about.
One of the greatest songs ever written.
It was written by Eric Bazilian, of The Hooters. The Hooters are a Philly band, and I'm from Philly. I used to see them play at JC Dobbs (awesome bar/club on South Street) a l o n g time ago. Eric Bazilian wrote all kinds of great songs that were performed/recorded by artists like Bon Jovi, Ricky Martin, Cindi Lauper - to name a few. The guy is a genius.
Anyway, Joan Osborne (no relation to Ozzie Osbourne) was the first to record the song that grabbed me so much today.
It's titled, "One of Us", and it's all about - what if God was one of us?
I cranked it as loud as I could in the car, and am posting this link here for your listening enjoyment. I'll be interested to hear what you think!!
