This year’s hot new muse? GOD. (or maybe alien abductions.) To honor this often ignored influence, a hastily compiled myopic rundown of heavenly jams:
The Beach Boys - God Only Knows
Hawkins – Jesus Christ Walks (Kanye West vs. Brand New)
Genesis - Jesus he knows me
Aberdeen City - God is going to get sick of me
Bloc Party - Better than Heaven
Japandroids - The house that Heaven Built
Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus
Fire Theft - Heaven
Pixies - Monkey Gone to Heaven
The Smiths - Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now
Carl Anderson - Heaven on their minds.
“I think that’s a responsibility that I have, to push possibilities, to show people: ‘This is the level that things could be at.’ […]it’s supposed to be pushing the furthest possibilities. I will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars, because I got the answers. I understand culture. I am the nucleus.” – Kanye West
He is a god.

For all the iceberg huggers.
