Kenny G Church. I'm SO There.

"The new Kenny G church is really causing a ruckus in the Christian Subculture. Apparently the worship band dresses up like Kenny G and his band and only do popular Kenny G songs to lift their their praises in a spree of tender soft rock glossolalia. 'The song "Sade" has never sounded so spirit-filled.' One new member remarked. Another notes, 'If it weren't for the Kenny G church, I wouldn't even be in church at all. The Gospel just makes so much sense when I can see and hear it in curls.' The lead player has a curly hair wig and the rest of the band are wearing Aviators and Berets. This new KG church is projecting 200% growth in the first quarter alone. Get in while you can!!!! The WWKGD bracelets are going fast people."

In all honesty, I really wish there would be an Elton Church or a Beatles Church. Hey, Levon talks about Jesus right?

Yeah, an Elton Church would kick some serious booty. "Goodbye Beelzebub, though I never knew you at all..."

Forget Kenny G. Surely you've heard of Saint Coltrane?

Seth Ward said...

Yeah I heard about that. I read it in his bio back in undergrad. He was pretty intensly religious/christian. It was started by his wife I think. Right?

kinda weird.

Levon wears his war wound like a crown
He calls his child jesus
`cause he likes the name
And he sends him to the finest school in town

Levon, levon likes his money
He makes a lot they say
Spend his days counting
In a garage by the motorway

He was born a pauper to a pawn on a christmas day
When the new york times said God is dead
And the wars begun
Alvin tostig has a son today

Levon sells cartoon balloons in town
His family business thrives
Jesus blows up balloons all day
Sits on the porch swing watching them fly

And jesus, he wants to go to venus
Leaving levon far behind
Take a balloon and go sailing
While levon, levon slowly dies

i couldn't help myself.

I think that is my favorite Elton Song. No lie. Tiny Dancer a close second.

If there WERE an Elton Church, this man here Joey, would be the High Priest.

No bigger Elton fan. I beg someone to challenge him with Elton Trivia.

I should admit to being a big Elton John fan as well.

Not so much in later years, but definitely love his early stuff. I was just listening to Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy the other day. Always loved it, I rarely hear it mentioned, even when people talk about older Elton John stuff. Not sure why -- maybe because it really didn't have any major singles or hits (the only one most people might know is "Someone Saved My Life Tonight").
