Lyrics
DON’T YOU DENY
THE GUY
IN THE SKY
HE BROUGHT YOU IN THIS WORLD
HE’LL TAKE YOU OUT

HE SPLIT THE DARK
FROM LIGHT
TO MY DELIGHT
HE KNOWS THE DIFFERENCE
FROM WRONG AND RIGHT

HE SENT HIS SON
HIS ONLY ONE
HE WAS STARING AT A LOADED GUN
HE DIDN’T TRY TO RUN

HE CRIED!
HE DIED!
A SOLDIER PIERCED HIS SIDE
THEY BURIED HIM
BUT NOT FOR VERY LONG

(SYNTH LEAD)

HE ROSE AGAIN
THAT WAS NOT THE END
THE BAD GUY DOESN’T ALWAYS WIN

(ANOTHER SYNTH LEAD)

DON’T YOU DENY
THE GUY
IN THE SKY
HE BROUGHT YOU IN THIS WORLD
HE’LL TAKE YOU OUT (3 TIMES)

A new musical style...
Gospel... lol. I might have known. Once again you have invented a new musical style - electronic/punk/christian. A highly original look at one of the many gods looking down on us :-) Enjoyed, Peter.

Great illustration. Sure Bob has three styles of singing: full, full-on and full-on-plus! Totally whack and glitchy. A drum roll frenzy! Dug.

songs of praise
We have a rather boring and staid TV programme in the UK called ' Songs of praise' which is full of blue rinsed ladies singing dreary hymns.
I would LOVE to hear them get in on this song.
I might even join the flock if the hymns were more like this.
Delightful lunacy and killer synth solos
enjoyed
cheers

Whilst I would, of course, being a irksome sort of dude, take issue with the message, this is the coolest gospel song ever! I love your light lyrical take on the topic and great stomping electro. That's heavenly enough for me.

You never seemed irksome to me, Peter. I mean, how many people do you know that intentionally listen to a gospel song like you just did?

You made my day, bro!

Thanks for listening. I know.... I know....

Thanks for the listen KC.

I try to be original - not sure how many other electro/synth/gospel/rockers there are out there, but I figured I'd join their little party by throwing this piece of music out there.

Thanks again.

Screams
I wasn't sure what to think about the screams, if they'd be perceived as too out of character or just silly?

I just wanted three "denials" in the song, so I screamed "no!" thrice.

Thanks Tom. It's good to know that you liked this tune.

excellent
first off those drum fills are mind boggling. I love this. i could see this on a Christian version of Yo Gabba Gabba. Besides being a weird genre twisting gospel track, this is just a great song. love that chord at the end too.

five_extra_arms said 2173 days ago (April 11th, 2011)
Drum Fills Boggle Minds
I think those Tomboy fills were from the Jam Pack rhythm collection. At 180 bpm they sounded phenomenal to my ears and so intense compared to the lazy synth melody. Throw in a distorted bass line and you know the secret to my gospel songs.

And that last chord at the end - it was the final touch I added before posting. Wasn't sure if it worked or not. Thanks for the vote of confidence!

(Yo Gabba Gabba - I think me and Mark Mothersbaugh would write some fun gospel tunes together!)

When did you decide to have a funeral?

I just talked to you a few days ago and everything seemed fine?!

jesus goes electronic punk......and about time too.
really cool track...love the vibe, the lyrics are amusing and clever and the vocal delivery is spot-on. great synth break. i would have liked this to have gone on longer and maybe departed somewhere else then come back again for a flurry.
but a great track nonetheless...really catchy and unique.

Gospel according to Dorsey
Bob you never cease to bring a smile to my face with your excursions in synthpop psychedelia. Yet again you take a hokey idea and make something truly compelling out of it. Loving the chunky synth arrangement and your vocals just get better. That Tom Tom drum track rocks. I can't compare this to anything cos it's just you start to finish. Brilliant.
