Remembering the Bizarre 70s Ska Music That Grew to become a Viral Tremendous-Hit, Jesus Is My Good friend | RELEVANT Journal

Irrespective of what number of occasions youve watched this video of the Catholic band Sonseed performing their poppy ska jam Jesus Is My Good friend on a 1970s non secular TV present, it by no means will get much less bizarre.

Theres the lyrics (Jesus is sort of a mounty; He at all times will get his man); theres the matching, open-collar outfits; theres the repetitive, and surprisingly infectious refrain; and just about all the pieces about it exists like an odd popular culture artifact from a wonderful, but forgotten period.

After being uploaded to YouTube in 2008, the video has racked up greater than 11 million views, and has grow to be a form of cult hit: Its been lined by quite a few bands, sparked an precise Sonseed reunion and was even featured on an episode of Glee.

Watch it right now, and relive the magic yet one more time.
