Three of a kind #16

Popes. We've all seen them. But how many of us have thought to write a song about the little guy in the funny hat?

Don't ask me anything about the song below. I have no idea who they are, where they come from or where I got this song from. All I know is that it's brilliant! It's definitely the best song about choosing a new pope that I've ever heard...

DJ Mitchison & Gargantuan Chums - Pope Versus Pope mp3 (available for 7 days)

The next band are Montreal-based The Lovely Feathers and the following song is from their 2006 album Hind Hind Legs, which you can buy from here. Pope John Paul - where's he from? All together now: Krakow, Poland!

The Lovely Feathers - Pope John Paul mp3 (available for 7 days)

And finally, after previously outing myself as a bit of a folkie, I'm now going to reveal that I have an occasional soft spot for comedy songs. The track below isn't my favourite of Fascinating Aïda's (that would have to be ode to love in the wake of an atomic blast Radiating Love, the suburban middle-class depression of Saturday Night, or the truth about love in Song For Tom), but it is about a pope and I always appreciate imaginative rhyming! Buy the album this comes from for a bargain £5.99.

(Narrowly missing out on appearing in this entry were Disco Pope by The Prats and Pope On a Rope by Adrenalin OD.)

Belatedly, I have stumbled upon this. As the writer of the first song in this blog entry, I would like to offer my sincere delight that you enjoyed it, not to mention my total confusion that you managed to come across it in the first place.
