Scripture, Religion, and Mainstream Music

Interesting list over at Dappled Things: songs that reference the Bible, Catholic liturgy or other Judeo-Christian sources.

I sent him two I could think of off the top of my head:

Pavement / Baptiss Blacktick : "I'm just waiting waiting for the baptist / that sad suck-off left me in Damascus". John the Baptist, of course.

Cassandra Wilson / Solomon Sang : "Vanity and precious stones / Weigh you down just the same / But when he lay down with Mekeda / Solomon sang". All about King Solomon, of course.

Via Charles Murtaugh.
