Janeen Brady & The Brite Singers - I'm A Mormon
Every Sunday I'll be posting some good ol' time religion! Here we have "I'm A Mormon." I found this record while living in Reno, Nevada in 1993 and over the years from excessive play (mostly for alcohol-induced friends) my copy is worn out (literally), but thanks to <!a href="http://www.geocities.com/melbacalls/index.html" target="_blank">Brother Russell (of Melbaworld) I have a nice clean copy for you to download. I have a couple of friends (of the Mormon faith) who had this record while growing up (they also had the <!a href="http://www.nephi.org/bounceback/" target="_blank">"Bounce Back" cassette, but that's for another Sunday!). The wacky thing about this song is not only the lyrics ""I'm a Mormon, yes I am, so if you want to study a Mormon, I'm a living specimen" but it's set to a rousing marching beat. Don't be surprised if you end up walking down the street and slowly start to go insane humming it.

I'm quite familiar with that little ditty, but did you also know that playing it backwards reveals some hidden meanings?

Aw, Jesus. Hearing this again after 25 years is like being repeatedly tapped on the back of the head with a sledgehammer. Is this what bad flashbacks are like for Vietnam vets? Argh.
