The Tab’s Eggs-cellent Easter playlist
It’s nothing short of egg-ceptional (sorry)
With Easter just around the corner, this makes for an egg-stravaganza of poorly egg-secuted (too much?) puns and references. Here are mine in music form.
1- The Stone Roses / I Am The Resurrection
Well, biblically speaking, Jesus resurrected on Easter Sunday. Plus, it’s an incredible song. What a brilliant egg-cuse to have it on repeat all weekend.
2- Hallelujah (club mix) / Happy Mondays
If only they were named the Good Fridays.
3- Jesus Doesn’t Want Me For A Sunbeam / Nirvana
Originally recorded by Scottish alternative band the Vaselines, this song egg-sploded when Nirvana covered it on MTV Unplugged.
4- Egg Cream / Lou Reed
Although the beverage of egg cream contains neither eggs nor cream, it does contain chocolate, so I thought I’d whisk it (get it?).
5- Rabbit Hole / Jamie T
Rabbits. possibly the second most Easter-y animal after chicks. Egg-cellent.
6- Personal Jesus / Depeche Mode
It’s a cracking song and has Jesus in the title AND lyrics. Perf-egg-t.
7- Like a Rolling Stone / Bob Dylan
Attempting to be witty by delving further into the bible and making a reference to when the stone to Jesus’ tomb mysteriously rolled away.
8- The Boy With The Thorn In His Side / The Smiths
Almost there, just sing “The Man With The Thorns In His Crown’ and you’ll be fine. Anyway, Morrissey has a thing with daffodils, which practically screams Easter.
9- Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up) / Florence + The Machine
Rabbits again. But Florence even sings “who is the lamb and who is the knife” – two Easter animals in one. Win win.
10- Take Me To Church / Hozier
Pretty self egg-splanatory this one.
11- Sheep / Pink Floyd
All. Ten. Minutes. Of. Sheep. Lambs are probably more Easter-y, but I’m not prepared to put Mary Had a Little Lamb into this playlist.
12- Sheep / The Twang
Another track about sheep thrown in for good measure (or if you don’t have the time/effort to listen to Pink Floyd).
13- Chocolate / The 1975
You know it.
Hopefully you’ve enjoyed this (first of many) playlist. If not, maybe you’ve learnt how annoyingly common words beginning with ‘ex’ are with all the egg related puns.
