Sorry, Augustine the Aleut - I've just noticed you posted God moves in a mysterious way ages ago. [Hot and Hormonal]

If something in Russian is required, and the resident Orthodoxen could countenance this without a shout of "Outrage!!", a sotto voce "Gospodi pomilui" could be sung as a chant throughout.

This is the Russian (church Slavonic) equivalent of Kyrie Eleison.

That is perfect. Not one I know - it doesn't get played on "Happy Radio" much.

here's a fantastic setting of MLK's we have a dream speech to Woodlands (Tell out my soul) by Michael Foster.
First verse is:
We have a dream: this nation will arise,
and truly live according to its creed,
that all are equal in their makers eyes,
and none shall suffer through another’s greed.

Full hymn

I love how on the album, that song is immediately followed by the mock-Edwardian foppishness of Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon. Queen was pretty much at home in any musical genre you could name.

It's Hard to be Humble. (Mac Davis)

"Oh Lord it's hard to be humble
When you're perfect in every way.
I can't wait
To look in the mirror.
Cause I get better looking each day.
To know me is to love me.
I must be a hell of a man.
Oh Lord It's hard to be humble,
But I'm doing the best that I can. "

(It's even a country song, a genre I generally loathe)

I do remember the song, but I'd forgotten just how vitriolic (and, as it turns out, appropriate to the circumstances) the words were. [Big Grin]

I'd forgotten about 'Death on Two Legs'. Perfect.

In a spirit of unity, I would like to propose Weird Al Yankovic's parody of 'Happy': Tacky . It even references Kanye West, who I understand has visited Trumpington Towers (see, he's not racist: some of his best friends are black).

Also, if the Episcopalian choir really are going to sing they can get away with ANYTHING provided it's in Latin. I suggest Dies Irae.

Yeah, Dies Irae sounds so macho The Donald would love it and he'd vaguely recognize it from an SUV commercial.

And I love "Tacky"! [Big Grin]

[Somewhat niche post]

Given the poem that has been written for the inauguration, I think The Eagles Journey of the Sorcerer would be appropriate.
