In the Christian faith, Good Friday is acknowledged as the day Jesus was crucified. It is the Friday before Easter/Ressurection Sunday and in theory should be the most somber day of Holy Week. That is unless you live in Carribean Brooklyn where even the most somber, morose, holy, and pious moments commence a turn up. And how do you proceed to celebrate life, without music? So for those who want to add to- or skip- the typical homilies, here are the recorded 7 last words of Jesus translated into the secular. No one does it better than Lauryn Hill using the biblical phrase "Forgive them father for they know not what they do." The sentiments expressed in the 7 phrases appear and reappear in popular music. Below are the songs with selected videos and links to the lyrics on Genius.com where you can listen to the song as well. What other tunes would you have added?
Word 1: Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.
