Judee Sill - Lopin' Along Thru the Cosmos



Type of Spiritual Experience


Sunday 12 December 2004
The Observer - Barney Hoskyns

Sill has touched a lot of souls over the years since her virtually unnoticed death. Recently, disciples have been coming out of the woodwork in ever greater numbers, from XTC's Andy Partridge to American singer-songwriter Shawn Colvin, …..'She didn't sound like anybody else,' says Colvin, …. It was streetwise and yet it was religious.'

A description of the experience

Lopin' Along Thru the Cosmos

Lopin' along thru the Cosmos,
And sideways I slide thro the square,
I'm hopin' so hard for a kiss from God,
I missed the sweet love of the Air

A silver chariot soars
Thru mercury ripples of sky,
I'm lookin' so hard for a place to land,
I almost forgot how to fly

So keep on movin',
Or stay by my side, either way,
I'll tell you a secret
I've never revealed
However we are is O.K.
