Vatican: We will rock you

    The official newspaper of the Vatican released its list of the 10 best albums of all-time.

    Be prepared — It doesn’t suck.

    The newspaper, no really, the official newspaper of the Vatican said, “the albums are perfect listening material for anyone who finds himself marooned on a desert island.”

    The list
    The Beatles’ “Revolver”
    Pink Floyd’s “The Dark Side of The Moon”
    Oasis’ “(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?”
    Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”
    U2’s “Achtung Baby”
    Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours”
    Donald Fagen’s “The Nightfly”
    Carlos Santana’s “Supernatural”
    Paul Simon’s “Graceland”
    David Crosby’s “If I Could Only Remember My Name”

    It also offers some commentary. This on Thriller, “Some songs seem to have been written yesterday…. while others still send shivers down the spine for their illuminating simplicity and musical thrust.”
    And this 100 percent correct observation on Oasis: “The album was never equaled because of the in-fighting by the Gallagher brothers.”
    They also dropped the papal body slam on Bob Dylan.
    “Because he paved the way for generations of unprofessional singer-songwriters who have ‘harshly tested the ears and patience of listeners’ with their tormented stories.”

    Sounds like Papal bull to me.

    I've got admit, if we hadn't been talking about 'Confederacy of Dunces' recently, there's no way Boethius comes to mind.

    Resisting any comments about the Vatican liking a Michael Jackson album.

    I have severe issues picturing Pope Benedict listening to Floyd.

    Now JPII, he was cool. He probably was a Beatles fan.
