Name That Hymn


Late in hour 3 of yesterday's Bob & Tom show, the gang was discussing religious music. Kristi had just read a story about some stone carvings in an Edinburgh church that may turn out to have been encoded music. As an aside - thanks to Fark, I will now forever think of her as one commenter referred to her: "the news reader who can't read," because now I notice that she trips over words A LOT. True to form here, she pronounces 'Edinburgh' to rhyme with 'Pittsburgh.' But I digress.

Anyway, Tom opines that a lot of religous music is a real downer, and Bob tries to cue up a song that doesn't quite work. I'm pretty sure it wasn't even the song he was trying to play. Listen to this clip and see if you can A) Name That Tune, and B) Name The Tune Bob Was Going For. I think I know both.



were you thinking "spirits in the night"-Manfred Mann?
He may have been looking for "Spirit in the Sky" by Norman Greenbaum. I think his name was Norman anyway....
BTW- there is no such thing as computer error..only operator error.

The song I thought he was going for was 'Deacon Blues' by Steely Dan, but I've lost the bubble on what I thought the song actually was. It may really have been 'Deacon Blues.'

And I agree that 99% of what's *called* computer error is really PEBCAK (Problem Exists Between Chair And Keyboard, either operator or programmer) - as a software engineer, I know this only too well - but hardware errors do occur.
