Something lighthearted....
Okay, it's mid '80's, and Mr. Mister came out with Kyrie.

Hi Leo, wave

I believe it's talking about the Lord having mercy on us when we travel down that road that is less traveled. Also, I believe the "laser" reference would be Christ as the light when traveling down that road.

I could be to old though and completely missed the mark! laughing laughing

Oh my, that brought me through the "way back" machine. Funny, I wasn't Catholic then, I didn't even really understand what "Kyrie" meant. That brought a smile to my face. Thanks Leo!

I saw an interview with the lead vocalist. He was perplexed how so many people misunderstood the lyrics. Those folks thought the lyrics were "Carrying a raisin" and not: Kyrie Eleison laughing

I have always liked that song. And when it came out I thought...yay for us Catholics to have that phrase in mainstream music. I think that Mister Mister album is somewhere in my stack!

I've read your replies, producing a broad smile reading each.
Thank you!
I remember joining a Gregorian Chant choir and encountering the Kyrie in chant... many more notes than I thought possible.
It was difficult for me to keep up at first.
My mind reached for a comic moment and I pictured doing what the band does in the video, clapping both hands high over the head with arms fully extended singing: whoah- who, whooooaaaaah- wo-o-oh!
Thank God I can override those comic moments during something as soulful as Gregorian chant during mass.
If there were any indication from someone else about the same thought during that moment, then I would have immediately lost my composure and begun an uncontrollable body laugh while being escorted out the door.
It delights me to know of the lead singer's reaction.
I'm pleased to know how others recognize this (then) pop song.
Thank you,

When that song came out, many of my classmates had an argument with our religion teacher about the song. She didn't believe it meant what it said.

Whatever merits the lyrics may have (I couldn't listen past the first 10 seconds), the "music" is atrocious.

Gee, I always kinda liked that one. Then again, I also like the Chumba Wumba song I Get Knocked Down But I Get Up Again or at least I did till I listened closely to the rest of the lyrics.

Of all "pop" attempts to make something Catholic popular throughout the years, I can only think of the Our Father sung by that nun in the early 70's and "Dominique" - the song made popular by French nuns about St. Dominic. "Kyrie" was very contemporary for the 80's.
If there are other Catholic pop songs out there, let me know.
By "pop", I mean top 40 music.
I am not a music aficionado by any means - I'm just trying to liven things up here.
Cor ad cor loquitur,
Leo
