He's alive

The perfect way to end the Easter posts. In the seventies, the American singer/song writer Don Francisco switched from regular folk rock to Christian folk with emphasis on ballads with Christian themes. He's alive from his album Forgiven is a very strong song, telling the events before and after the crucifixion of Jesus from the point of view of one of his disciples (probably Peter). You really get drawn into the story, thanks to vivid images he conjures up in the lyrics. Art Rock score: 9/10 (very strong song, one of 650 best songs of all time).
