The 10 Plagues In Song: Part II

Based on the enormous success that last year’s 10 Plagues In Song post was, I figured I’d do it all again. This is not an easy task. Finding one song about the death of livestock was hard enough. Searching for a second took some serious digging. But here you have it – the 10 Plauges in Song, Part II.

Update: My blogging protege Aaron has come up with his own indie version of the 10 plagues over at the Sound Co-OpCheck it out. And then check mine below.

  1. Blood: The Black Angels – River Of Blood
  2. Frogs: Flaming Lips – I Can Be A Frog
  3. Lice: Mogwai – Killing All The Flies
  4. Wild Animals: James Vincent McMorrow – The Sparrow And The Wolf
  5. Livestock Death: Slim Cessna’s Auto Club – That Fierce Cow Is Common Sense In A Country Dress
  6. Boils: Frightened Rabbit – The Modern Leper
  7. Hail: Mastodon – Hail To Fire
  8. Locusts: The Avett Brothers – Pretty Girl From Locust
  9. Darkness: Johnny Cash – I See A Darkness
  10. Death of Firstborn: J. Tillman – Firstborn
Enjoy the music, and have a happy Passover.
