The Killers


(nr 2 positie in de top 40 2008 met nummer “human”)
































































Bijbels nr. Tranguilize – citaat lied “and we’re looking for a page/in that lifeless book of hope” ..’”acid rain, when abel looked up at cain”.






























































The Lou gramm band ( zanger van Foreigner).

  1. Baptized by fire – “I saw a light from heaven it shone brighter than the sun” doet denken aan het bekeringsverhaal van Paulus in bijbelboek Handelingen en Openbaringen 1:14 14 Zijn hoofd en zijn haren waren wit als witte wol of als sneeuw, en zijn ogen waren als een vlammend vuur. 15 Zijn voeten gloeiden als brons in een oven. Zijn stem klonk als het geluid van geweldige watermassa’s. 16 In zijn rechterhand had hij zeven sterren en uit zijn mond kwam een scherp, tweesnijdend zwaard. Zijn gezicht schitterde als de felle zon. 17 Toen ik hem zag viel ik als dood voor zijn voeten neer. Maar hij legde zijn rechterhand op me en zei: ‘Wees niet bang. Ik ben de eerste en de laatste. 18 Ik ben degene die leeft; ik was dood, maar ik leef, nu en tot in eeuwigheid. Ik heb de sleutels van de dood en van het dodenrijk.

  2. Made to be broken – Lied gaat over de schat die wij hebben in aarden vaten- als olijfolie geperst – kracht door kruis etc.

  3. Willing to forgive – “Learn the secrets of my soul, uncertain of my First steps” de onderwerpen doen denken aan baby van God – melk van het geloof(vergeving als hoofdpunt).

  4. That’s the way God planned it – Alles onder Zijn zegen (Cover van Billy Preston)

  5. I wanna testify – Iedereen ziet hoe hij is veranderd door Gods liefde. In de bijbel staat dat de mensen zagen hoe lief de eerste christenen elkaar hadden en velen sloten zich daardoor aan.

  6. So Great – zingt over de grootheid van God in het lied komt ook een kindergebed voor dat door kinderen gezongen wordt.(lijkt op een psalm).

  7. Redeemer – Hij zingt “Kom op verlosser”. Hij wil Jezus als het ware de ring in gooien !! Jezus voorop in de geestelijke strijd.

  8. Single vision –“one nation under God” ik moest denken aan het moment dat koning Joas de tien geboden terugvindt en Gods wil weer leidend word in Israel.

  9. Rattle yer bones – eerste associatie met de liedtitel is met het bijbel verhaal van de dorre doodsbeenderen in Ezechiel deze beenderen(botten) komen tot leven. Rattle heeft natuurlijk met een ratelslang te maken(in de bijbel wordt gezegd dat gelovigen soms listig als een slang en wijs als een duif moeten zijn). In het lied zingt hij “seven times a day” (ik moest denken aan het zeven maal wandelen en op de hoorn blazen bij de stad Jericho).

  10. You saved me – Hij leeft niet meer van zijn reputatie maar van God.

  11. It’s not too late – “Take up my cross and follow beyond anything I dream, I found my Jericho it seems” spreekt voor zich.

The Neville Brothers:



Fire and Brimstone nummer vol met beelden uit openbaringen (maan die rood word,vurige hagel, licht dat op hem schijnt(bijbelboek handelingenPaulus bekering) etc.

The The
In 1983 brak The The wereldwijd door met hun tweede album, Soul Mining. De groep verkocht sindsdien miljoenen albums, en maakte nog 10 albums.

De bekendste hit van de groep is Uncertain Smile uit 1983, afkomstig van Soul Mining.



  • Armageddon days: Over het laatste der dagen , de strijd tussen christendom en islam. Bijbelboek Openbaringen. Aantal citaten:

  • “ But if you think that Jesus Christ is coming
    Honey, you've got another thing coming
    If he ever finds out who's hijacked his name
    He'll cut out his heart and turn in his grave”

  • If the real Jesus Christ were to stand up today
    He'd be gunned down cold by the C.I.A.

  • But God didn't build himself that throne
    God doesn't live in Israel or Rome
    God doesn't belong to the Yankee dollar
    God doesn't plant the bombs for Hezbollah
    God doesn't even go to church
    And God won't send us down to Allah to burn
    God will remind us what we already know
    That the human race is about to reap what it's sown

Thrice: 1 gouden plaat en een nr 24 en 39 notering in de u.s. in 2003 en 2005.

There are many literary themes and references littered throughout Thrice's lyrics and song titles. Many of these themes can be attributed to the fact that Dustin, the main lyricist, reads heavily. Themes relevant to the Christian faith appear frequently in the subject matter of their songs. Particularly prominent are references to the twentieth-century Christian apologist and philosopher C.S. Lewis, with the songs "As the Ruin Falls," "The Abolition of Man," "That Hideous Strength," and "The Weight of Glory" being named after works by Lewis. The song "The Earth Will Shake" borrows heavily from Lewis's poem "The Prudent Jailor."[23] and the song "Come All You Weary" contains the line "the light's growing bright further up, further in," which is a reference to Lewis' The Last Battle.


Thrice's lyrics make frequent reference to Biblical scripture, with many lines being direct quotations of Jesus from Matthew 11:28-30. Noticeable examples are the songs "Moving Mountains," which largely derives from 1 Corinthians 13:1-3, "Of Dust and Nations," which references Matthew 6:19-20, "In Exile", whose concept is from Hebrews 11:13-16, "Image of the Invisible," which comes from Colossians 1:15, and "Child of Dust" which references Genesis 3:19. "Hold Fast Hope" comes from Jonah 1:4-16. The song "Like Moths To Flame" is about Peter's denial of Christ told in Matthew 26:26-35, 69-75. "The Messenger" comes from Isaiah 6:4-10. "Wood and Wire" somewhat derives from the verse 2 Corinthians 4:17

Ook is er het nummer “For Miles”met een citaat van Jezus and there’s no greater love, than that one shed his blood for his friends”. On that dat day the scales…. gaat over het laatste oordeel.

En “Come all you weary” – lied over het rust vinden bij het juk van Jezus. Bijbeltekst “komt allen die vermoeid en belast zijt en Ik geef u rust”

However, Thrice have been quoted as saying they are not a Christian band, and not all members are Christians [52] which leaves the exact meaning behind their lyrics unknown and under heavy debate by fans.



Tom Jones

Gospel cd Praise and Blame

Tom Jones in een interview: “Als je zulke teksten zingt, moet het iets betekenen”. En op de vraag of hij bid ? “O ja, ja zeker,zeker. Ik bid elke avond. Ik ga op mijn knieen en dank God in de eerste plaats voor mijn stem, dat Hij mij dit instrument gegeven heeft, waarmee ik mezelf kan zijn en kan doen wat ik al zo lang met liefde doe.”
Tom Waits (and gavin Briar)
Jesus Blood never failed me yet (stond in de Nederlandse top 40 in 1994)

Jesus Gonna Be here

Little trip to heaven

Sins of my father
Tommy James and the Shondells
Nr Crystal Blue persuasion: Top 10 hit in 1969 ( staan in hitparade hall of fame –alle platen goud 6 miljoen verkocht)

The title of the song came to James while he was reading The Bible's Book of Revelation, according to James in a 1985 interview in Hitch magazine:

I took the title from the Book of Revelations[sic] in the Bible, reading about the New Jerusalem. The words jumped out at me, and they're not together; they're spread out over three or four verses. But it seemed to go together, it's my favorite of all my songs and one of our most requested.[1]

However, according to James's manager, James was actually inspired by his reading of the Book of Ezekiel where it speaks of the Blue Shekinah Light which represented the presence of the Almighty God and the Books of Isaiah and Revelation where it speaks of a bright future of a brotherhood of mankind living in peace and harmony.[2]

Tupac and Outlawz:

Black Jesuz Tupac zoekt naar een ‘zwarte jezus’ die zijn leven in de Getto begrijpt. Een Jezus die niet te perfect is. Een drinkende en rokende Jezus.

Only God can Judge me now:

Lied kan misschien gebruikt worden in relatie met Jezus uitspraak “wie zonder zonde is werpe de eerste steen” en “haal eerst de balk uit je eigen oog voor je de splinter aanwijst bij een ander”.


Two by two: Musical over de Ark van Noach
The Stanley Brothers(1 van de belangrijkste groepen in traditionele Amerikaanse muziek): Old Daniel prayed Daniel’s voorbeeld in de leeuwenkuil wordt herverteld + lijst van geloofshelden net als in Hebreeën 11.
The Pixies: Nimrod’s son – zoon uit een incestueuze verhouding. Nimrod was de koning van Babel ten tijde van de toren van Babel. Een geweldige jager(mensenjager ?) en koning van de opstand tegen God.

The Who(pete townsend):



  1. Man in a purple dress: kritiek op geestelijk leiders die zich verschuilen achter hun kleding en hoogmoedig zijn met een slechte ziel. (Jezus geeft in de bijbel ook kritiek op farizeeërs die zichzelf uiterlijk zo goed vinden (met bidden i.t.t. tollenaar) Jezus noemt sommige geestelijke leiders gewitte graven. Wit van buiten zwart van binnen.

  2. Let my love open the door (gospel)

  3. God speaks

  4. Two thousand years (gaat over wie Jezus is, vanaf het jaar 0 heeft pete gewacht)

And so I have a chance to love
As you intended
You really lived and die for me
Is the waiting really ended?

Two thousand years


Two thousand long, long years
Two thousand years
Two thousand long, long years
Have I waited

Then find I can't be perfect


Not even a perfect snake
To know that we are hated
You suffer for my sake
Tom Waits:

  1. God’s away on business – In de clip loopt hij in een soort ark met dieren. Hij zingt er ook over dat het schip zinkt. Lammen en blinden zijn de lekken in het schip en de kerk(ark) is meer bezig met geld dan de zieken etc. Het lied doet denken aan het wijngaard verhaal van Jezus. De Vader gaat weg/ op zakenreis laat de beheerders(geestelijk leiders) achter. De Vader stuurt profeten om polshoogte te nemen, zij worden gedood. Als laatste stuurt Hij zijn zoon ook hij wordt gedood. Tom zingt over verlatenheid en dat de misdadigers aan de macht zijn. Ook bij een psalm of Job bruikbaar.

  2. temptation

Tori Amos(zij pleit voor een vrouwelijker godsbeeld in veel popnummers, leest het liefst de gnostische evangeliën, dochter van een dominee):

  1. God – allemaal geloven door elkaar. Naald door een kaars (uitleg is naald door een fallus symbool. Gebedsriemen worden vergeleken met drugspuiten in de clip

  2. Strong black vine – nummer gaat over geloofssystemen en hun intolerantie. In de clip bloed ze zelf ook aan alle kanten.

(in een interview geeft ze aan vroeger ook hele goede christelijke vrouwen te hebben gekend en ze zou willen dat dat ook bekend was, nu komt ze alleen maar negatief over). Jezus zegt “ik ben de wijnrank en jullie zijn de vruchten, zonder Mij kunnen jullie niets doen” dit verklaard de titel denk ik.
U2


Album: Boy

"I Will Follow"

"If you walk away walk away I will follow" -- Ruth 1:16: "But Ruth said, "Entreat me not to leave you or to return from following you; for where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God."



Album: October

"Gloria"

"In te domine...exultate...miserere" -- The first words in Latin of three Psalms--30 (31): "In Thee O Lord do I put my trust...", 32 (33): "Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous..." and 50 (51): "Have mercy on me, O God." "O Lord, loosen my lips"--Psalm 50 (51): "O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise."

"Only in you I'm complete" -- Colossians 2:10 "For in {Christ} dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And in him you are complete." (submitted by Rev. Beth)

"Fire"

"The sun is burning black ... the moon is running red ... the stars are falling down" -- from Revelation 6, 12-13: "Then I watched while he broke open the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; the sun turned as black as dark sackcloth and the whole moon became like blood. The stars in the sky fell to the earth like unripe figs shaken loose from the tree in a strong wind."



"Tomorrow"

"Who tore the curtain? Who was it for?" -- Matthew 27:51: [The Crucifixion] "At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split."

The door imagery and "open up to the Lamb of God" is from Rev 3:20 when Jesus says: "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will eat with him, and he with me." (submitted by Rev. Beth)

"October"

"And kingdoms rise and kingdoms fall" -- this one may be a bit of a stretch, but Psalm 46:6: "Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts."



"With a Shout"

"With a shout" -- Psalm 47:5 "God has gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet." Also I think there is an overall reference to the Psalms of Ascent, which were chanted by pilgrims on the way up the hill to Jerusalem, e.g. Psalm 122 "I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD. Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem." (submitted by Rev. Beth)



"I Threw a Brick Through a Window"

"No one is blinder than he who will not see" -- John 9:40-41 "And some of the Pharisees who were with Jesus heard these words, and said to him, Are we blind also? Jesus said to them, If you were blind, you would have no sin: but now that you claim to see, your sin remains." (submitted by Rev. Beth)



"Stranger In a Strange Land"

The entire song makes allusion to the Emmaus story from Luke 24, where the risen Jesus appears as a stranger, but miraculously cannot be recognized until he offers bread to the two disciples who have invited him in. The song paraphrases their exclamation when they realize who they have been with -- "They asked each other, "Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?" ("I watched as he watched us. The way it was when he was with us") Though it is late night, they don't go to sleep but instead walk 9 miles back to Jerusalem to tell the others what they saw. ("They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together and saying, 'It is true! The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon.' Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread.") This parallels: "But I couldn't sleep after what I saw: I wrote this letter to tell you the way I feel. I wish you were here to see what I could see." (submitted by Rev. Beth)



Album: War

"Sunday Bloody Sunday"

"Trenches dug within our hearts, And mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart" -- Matthew 10:35: "For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law."

"Wipe the tears from your eyes" -- Revelation 21:4: "He will wipe every tear from their eyes..."

"We eat and drink while tomorrow they die" A brilliant ironic take on I Cor 15:32 "If the dead are not raised, let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die." The "how long" cry is too frequent in the Bible to cover in full, but here are some prominent examples:

Ps 6:3 "My soul is in anguish. How long, O LORD, how long?" (This is the same line Bono says he used in "40," too.)

Ps 94:3 "How long will the wicked, O LORD, how long will the wicked be jubilant?"

Habakkuk 1:2 "How long, O LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen? Or cry out to you, "Violence!" but you do not save?" (submitted by Rev. Beth)

"Seconds"

"Like a thief in the night" -- 1 Thessalonians 5:2: "for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night."



"Like a Song"

"A new heart is what I need/Oh God, make it bleed" -- Ezekiel 36:26: "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh."



"Drowning Man"

"Rise up, rise up/With wings like eagles/You'll run, you'll run/You'll run and not grow weary" -- Isaiah 40:31: "but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."



"Two Hearts Beat As One"

"Say I'm a fool; You say I'm nothing; But if I'm a fool for you, Oh, that's something" I Cor 3:18 If any one among you seems to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. I Cor 4:10 We are fools for Christ's sake. (submitted by Rev. Beth)



"Surrender"

"If I wanna live I gotta die to myself someday" -- Luke 9:24-25: "For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. What profit is there for one to gain the whole world yet lose or forfeit himself?"



"40"

Psalm 40, though Bono has mentioned in his intro to the book of Psalms that "How long (to sing this song)" was copped from Psalm 6.



Album: The Unforgettable Fire

"Pride"

"One man betrayed with a kiss" -- "Jesus said to him, 'Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?'"

"One man washed on an empty beach" -- Possibly a reference to Jonah 2:10: "Then the LORD ordered the fish to spit up Jonah on the beach, and it did." (Thanks to Brian)

"One man come he to justify" is from Isaiah 53:11, probably the best- known Old Testament prophecy describing the purpose of Jesus' coming: "my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities." "Justify" is a key verb in Christian theology referring to how the grace of Jesus makes believers right with God. (submitted by Rev. Beth)



"The Unforgettable Fire"

"And if the mountains should crumble or disappear into the sea..." Psalm 46:2: "Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea."

"A dry and waterless place" -- Deut 8:15 "He led you through the vast and dreadful desert, that dry and waterless land." (submitted by Rev. Beth)

Album: The Joshua Tree

"Where the Streets Have No Name"

"We're beaten and blown by the wind" -- James 1:6: "But he should ask in faith, not doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed about by the wind."

Although I'm sure there are several layers of meaning to this image, I cannot imagine someone who knows the Bible as well as Bono describing an ideal place in terms of "streets" without thinking of the description of the great street in the kingdom of Heaven -- Revelation 22:1 "Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city." And 22:21 "The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass." (submitted by Rev. Beth)

"I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"

"I have spoken with the tongue of angels" -- 1 Corinthians 13:1: "If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal."



"With or Without You"

"See the thorn twist in your side" -- 2 Corinthians 12:7: "To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me."



"Bullet the Blue Sky"

"Jacob wrestled the angel/And the angel was overcome" -- Genesis 32:25: "Jacob was left there alone. Then some man wrestled with him until the break of dawn."



"Running To Stand Still"

"Sweet the sin, Bitter the taste in my mouth" -- Rev 10:10 "And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter." (submitted by Rev. Beth)
