Bed of Eyes

Under Appreciated




The less reverent tone of Jesus Christ Superstar heralded a more casual attitude toward the Bible and Christianity in popular music during the 1970’s that has accelerated somewhat since that time.  Although there are a handful of rock songs having a mocking tone – “Dear God by XTC and the Bed of Eyes song “Smart Religion” (“. . . is no religion”) from their album Crimp in the Facts are the only two that come to mind in my own collection – I see it mostly in band names.
