I was singing Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun in the shower this morning and I realized something momentous.You can sing the words to Amazing Grace to the tune of the Black Hole Sun verses.

I have a list of different tunes for Amazing Grace that is ongoing in my notebook.  It is a very versatile song.  Here are the ones I have so far:

  • Gilligan’s Island
  • Humble Yourself (In The Sight of the Lord)
  • House of the Rising Sun
  • Peaceful, Easy Feeling

I can’t stand the Peaceful, Easy Feeling version.  Mostly because the only worthwhile song the Eagles have released is Hotel California but also because the way I’ve heard it sung, there is this ‘bah dah buh bah’ thing in the chorus that sounds pretty much like the McDonald’s theme, now that I come to think of it.
