apparently the #1 song in great britain is cliff richards’s “millenium prayer”. this song consists of a 59-year-old cliff richard singing the lord’s prayer to the music of “auld lang sayne” <sp>?
i downloaded the mp3, and this song is just horrid. apparently george michael has launched a bit of an anti-millenium prayer campaign, claiming that christians are being pressured into buying this piece of shit in order to make it the #1 song through the millenium.
i don’t know what to make of all this, but if indeed churches are indeed presuring their members to buy this piece of shit (download it yourself, it is truly awful), then i would tend to side with him on this.
on the other hand, maybe george michaelis bitter that he hasn’t had a hit in a decade… i don’t know. any brits out there who can tell me what the hell is up with “millenium prayer”? i didn’t really think this crap was for real until i got the mp3. is this REALLy the number 1 song over there?
