Thrilling New Feature: Monday Audioblogging!



I'm so excited (and I just can't hide it) about this new feature, in which I share some of the more esoteric things from my audio collection. I think it's nice to have a weekly feature which breaks from a blog's usual topics, and Friday ugly tour bus photoblogging just wasn't cutting it. Monday audioblogging will feature selections from demented children's albums, wrong-headed spoken word dissertations, bizarre medical recordings, rare experimental records, etc. Thanks to this handy gadget, it's easy!

And what better way to start than with Little Marcy? Disturbing Christian music for children is one of my favorite genres, and I've got more than a dozen LPs by the fabulously nightmarish Marcy, whose power to clear a room exceeds even Throbbing Gristle. Go here to find out more about the mutant Jesus doll with the mostest, and lots more mp3 files. How much can you take?

These two songs are from the famous "Marcy Sings to $1.98 Children". You may either click on the link and let your browser decide what to do, or save the link to your hard drive and add some insanity to your iPod. Enjoy!

I'll Be a Sunbeam for Jesus (2:40, 1.9mb)
When Mr. Satan Knocks on My Heart's Door (:44, 878kb)

EDIT: A coworker of mine commented, "She later went on to be The Bride of Chucky."

Disclaimer: mp3 files are presented for educational use only. If anyone with a legal claim to these recordings wishes to squash me like a bug, please contact my battery of attorneys.

UPDATE: I'm thrilled at the response to this new feature, especially during such a dead week! Next week: Moog madness. Get ready to rock.

Wow, SP, you have given me a whole new groove. I prefer "When Mr. Satan Knocks on My Front Door," because it reminds me of Shirley Temple's spunk in confronting e-ville.

Sooo... how old is Little Marcy? I'd say 46.

Curse you, PSP! Curse you, I say!!

I am profoundly disturbed by the Mr. Satan song, which clearly is the product of some repressed childhood memory that Big Marcy projects on Little Marcy. Equally disturbing is her performance of "I Love Little Pussy" at the Little Marcy site that you deviously linked to.

I was bitterly disappointed by "I love Pussy".

It turns out it's only a cat! Who knew?

I knew my readers would glom on to "I Love Little Pussy". But, yes, the title writes a check the song can't really cash.

O your High-ness, I hate to be off topic, but I would so enjoy a Condi heairdo alert tee shirt. I saw a conservative alert tee shirt on another site, but it just can't compare to Condi alert...

Do consider being corrupted by money for a good cause!

Used to sing the "Sunbeam" song in Sunday School - now it's stuck in my head again - arg.

All I have to say is: if Jesus were alive today (::cough:: ever ::cough::) she would NOT listen to this or any form of contemporary Christian Rock. I imagine she'd listen to DC 101 and rock out with the other sinners.

That is the scariest thing I've ever heard and no I'm not kidding.

I have to go to my closet and pray...

Supreme camp. Thanks for sharing this.

Her voice is like sugar lumps with honey, rolled in confectioner's sugar with sprinkles.
Someone needs to re-do "I love little pussy" ...perhaps Melissa Etheridge? Tom Cruise?

DRFS said...

All I have to say is...this rocks. Poor Mr. Satan. First he falls in love with Sadeem and now this....

I . . . somehow landed here, back in time. I'm not sure how, but as luck would have it, I landed on Marcy's back door. Or something.

This was still scary the second time around.

When Mr Satan knocks on my heart's door, he's usually saying, "Avon calling!"
