Song of the Day - One of Us




Joan Osborne - One of Us
Album: Relish (1995)




So, I think 'One of Us' is pretty awesome. I never used to, but I was young(er) and thought it was just some Christian rock lameness that managed to make it onto the pop charts. How wrong I was. It's actually a damn good rock song, the lyrics are some of the most thought provoking you'll ever hear and Osborne's distinct delivery stays with you long after you've heard it. 'One of Us' made and killed her career, but it will go down as one of the better one hit wonders in music's history. Forgotten Gem #5. Enjoy!
