You are weak, but He is strong.

Jesus shouted me out in his Easter post and now He gets His comeuppance via three of the most annoying covers of "Jesus Loves Me" I have on my hard drive right now. Thanks, Yo!

  • Baby Lu-Lu "Jesus Loves Me" (Traditional, sort of)
    The 365 Days Project/Ubuweb classic. Nothing creepier than a grown woman singing religious tunes as a 3-year-old.

  • Mike Freund "Jesus Loves Me" (Traditional, sort of)
    Just a hardcore-lovin' boy with the Son of God on his side.

  • Placebo "Jesus Loves Me" (Traditional, sort of)
    I've tried several times to sincerely like Placebo—even going so far as to meet Brian Molko a couple of times at lame record label-sponsored "meet and greets"—but his creepy nephew-of-Kermit-the-frog voice always gets in the way. My Spidey senses say Jesus merely tolerates him.

    I know what you mean about Placebo, but his voice has improved a lot since they started. Is this cover from an older show?

    Thanks for the Placebo giggle!

    Jesus invented Placebo as a practical joke on the rest of humanity.

    Thanks, I think.

    placebo were an excellent band pre-meds. They can fall off the face of the earth now after that album. Jesus can push them.

    I can't believe that song exists! I am Mike Freund, the criminal responsible for that rubbish cover. I just wanna know, how the heck did you even find that? I thought I destroyed all copies of that song years ago!!
