Norman_Greenbaum_-_Spirit_in_the_Sky_(album)#6 – Norman Greenbaum – “Spirit In The Sky” – (1969)

This song (which hit #1 in the UK, but only #3 in the U.S.) has to be one of the most famous songs of 1969. It’s one that everyone just knows – maybe because it still receives radio airplay and has been featured in movies and TV many times. Boston-born Greenbaum was a one-hit wonder, but it was a good one.
