Song 21: Norman Greenbaum, “Spirit In the Sky” (1969)Posted: January 21, 2013
My dad would have been 67 today.
He died eight-and-a-half years ago, of multiple myeloma. I think of him every day, especially now that I have a daughter. He would have loved Lilly, who is funny and kind, just like her grandfather.
Whenever this song came on the radio, he would roll down the windows and crank the volume.
Happy birthday, dad.
