I can not remember why on earth I bought Spirit In The Sky by Doctor And The Medics on a 7” vinyl. To this day my only suggestion is that I saw the single cover and went: “Hey, they look like originals. Let me buy this just to show everyone how big a young rebel I am”. Not being a rebel at all this is stupid but at some point I was trying to be – but never was…
Listening to Spirit In The Sky today always make me in a good mood. I will see before me the single cover with extremely high hair and extravagant clothes while singing out:
Never been a sinner, I’ve never sinned.
I’ve got a friend named Jesus.
So you know that when I die.
It’s gonna set me up with the Spirit In The Sky.
Spirit In The Sky is a one hit wonder and can be found on the Doctor And The Medics album Laughing At The Pieces.
Highest chart position: UK Singles Chart #1 and Billboard Hot 100 #69.
