Is to hear Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up.”  If you couldn’t love Arcade Fire anymore, all proceeds of the band’s licensing of the song are going to Partners in Health’s Stand With Haiti relief efforts.


Down On My Knees

January 22, 2010

I was watching the “Hope For Haiti Now” telethon an TV.  Countless actors and musicians gave their time for this great cause.  Then, suddenly, something strange happened….Madonna sang “Like a Prayer” (with a full choir, might I add).  Does she forget what this song is about?!?!?!  Oh.My.God!

When you call my name, it’s like a little
Prayer. I’m down on my knees, I wanna take you
There. In the midnight hour, I can feel your
Power just like a prayer. You know I’ll take
You there.

Like a child, you whisper softly to me. You’re
In control just like a child, now I’m dancing.
It’s like a dream, no end and no beginning.
You’re here with me, it’s like a dream. Let
The choir sing.

Note: This song was condemned by Christian organizations upon its release in 1989
