MP3otW – Deus by the Sugarcubes

Filed under: MP3 of the Week by Nathan @ 2:44 pm

In 2005 (maybe moreso in 1995) everyone and her dog knows who Bjork is, but back in 1988 not too many people knew about the Sugarcubes. I have very clear memories of listening to their first album, because it was so much different than choking down the latest Rick Astley turd on FM Radio. Deus wasn’t as popular a song as Motorcrash, but it struck a chord with me.

Deus does not exist
But if he does, he lives in the sky above me
In the fattest largest cloud up there.
He’s whiter than white and cleaner than clean.
He wants to reach me.

I think it kinda meshed with my own fucked up ideas about religion and god and how I couldn’t figure out why I didn’t think it sucked, but still wanted nothing to do with it.

In truth, I haven’t evolved too much on that front.
