Favorite New Model Army Songs #9 - "Space"
September 28, 2017 7:31pm CST
That's right, there is no theme for this particular music series. Instead, I am focused upon one of my all-time bands: New Model Army, with "Space." From their 1990 album, Impurity, "Space" was that album's 3rd single, although it was a non album live version, which reached #39 in the UK. One of the band's most radio friendly tunes, "Space" is decidedly not a protest song (those are coming up soon.) It is a tune about the beauty of our planet. Best part? Moses is walking up the hill, mesmerized by the beautiful nature surrounding him, when God calls on Moses to "Bring the people to my will." Moses blows God off and keeps walking up the hill in order to get a better view. There is a spoken word section, by vocalist Justin Sullivan's life partner, Joolz Denby. I linked to the actual album version instead of a live version due to this. Enjoy! (Info verified by Wikipedia)
