The Vatican on Rock Music

by Steve Ray on February 17, 2010

L’Osservatore Romano ranks the top hits of rock music
The Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano has offered its list of the top 10 albums in this history of rock music. The list begins with the Beatles’ Revolver, followed by David Crosby’s If I Could Only Remember My Name and Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. Other artists included on the Vatican newspaper’s list are Fleetwood Mac, Steely Dan, Michael Jackson, Paul Simon, U2, Carlos Santana, and Oasis.

I might agree with some, but definitely disagree with others. Good thing neither I nor the L’Osservatore Romano are considered infallible :-)

Another good article on this here.
