Norman Greenbaum: About

Norman Greenbaum is a singer-songwriter who was born on 20 November 1942 in Malden, Massachusetts. He studied music at Boston University. Greenbaum is best known for his "Spirit In The Sky", which sold two million copies in 1969 and 1970. The song, with its combination of 'heavy' guitar, hand-clapping, and spiritual lyrics was a memorable one-hit wonder.

The song has been used in many advertisements and television shows, as well as films including Remember The Titans, Contact, Apollo 13, Ocean's Eleven, Wayne's World 2 and the 2005 remake of The Longest Yard. A cover version by the British band Doctor and the Medics reached number one in many countries, in 1986, and also made them another one-hit wonder. In 2000, the song was again covered by the Christian Rock group dc Talk for the CBS mini-series Jesus: The Epic Miniseries. Read more about ...
