Today’s five is all about Non-Religious, or Secular Jesus Songs.
Personal Jesus – Depeche Mode
800 Pound Jesus – Sawyer Brown
Jesus Doesn’t want me for a Sunbeam – the Vaselines
Jesus Just Left Chicago – ZZ Top
Jesus Etc. – Wilco
BONUS: Quite possibly my favorite song in this category. It’s been recorded by The Goldcoast Singers, Ernie Marrs, The Flaming Lips, Billy Idol, Jack Johnson, The Levellers, The Blackeyed Susans, and several others, but the version most people remember is Paul Newman from the movie Cool Hand Luke.
