Spiritual Sounds, the Vatican Top Ten for surviving Sanremo

In another move towards embracing modern culture – such as talking about The Simpsons, Harry Potter or Avatar – the Vatican newspaper Osservatore Romano last Saturday published a Top Ten of its all-time favourite albums, including the Beatles‘ “Revolver” and Michael Jackson‘s “Thriller”. The list, compiled by journalists Giuseppe Fiorentino and Gaetano Vallini, is described as a “modest handbook that may act as a guide to the right road in music”, “to remind ourselves that there is an alternative”,  in a reference to  the imminent opening of this year’s Sanremo Festival.

Whatever the reason, the list is a solid collection of pop and rock from the last 40 years, although you may feel that David Crosby‘s time in prison, along with the alleged preferences of Michael Jackson and the infamously direct method of expression of Liam Gallagher of Oasis may not be values the Vatican is trying to promote…

That said, here’s the list of former Devil’s music:

1. Revolver by the Beatles

2. If I Could Only Remember My Name by David Crosby

3. The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd

4. Rumours by Fleetwood Mac

5. The Nightfly by Donald Fagen

6. Thriller by Michael Jackson

7. Graceland by Paul Simon

8. Achtung Baby by U2

9. (What’s the Story) Morning Glory by Oasis

10. Supernatural by Carlos Santana
