Follow Up: Mick Meets Jesus

If you were at Anchor this past week when we talked about the Rolling Stones, you'll remember we talked about Mick Jagger's spiritual quest beginning with "(Can't Get No) Satisfaction" and moving to "Saint of Me." We ended with no resolution. Ultimately, it seemed, Jagger was unable to come to terms with Christianity. But my friend Dave Zahl turned me on to Jagger's 2001 song, "Joy." It's about as clear a depiction of conversion as I've ever seen. It's an amazing song.

You can listen here:

PS--Listen for Bono on backing vocals. Also, the Who's Pete Townsend is on guitar.
