CHURCH ORGANIST SUSPENDED AFTER PLAYING STAYIN ALIVE AT EASTER SUNDAY SERVICE

http://christianfunnypictures.com/2016/11/church-organist-suspended-playing-stayin-alive-easter-sunday-service.html


From the Head Office of the Royal College of Organists, Bishop George Piper, said this at a press conference held on Tuesday:
“For the last 16 years organist Mr Ross Stanhope has provided spiritually uplifting music to worshippers at St Albans Cathedral, Chicago, Illinois. It is therefore with great sadness that I inform you that he has been suspended pending further investigation and advice. There is now clear evidence that tends to prove he has strayed from musical orthodoxy by playing a short organ flourish of ‘Stayin’ Alive’ in the middle of one of the Easter hymns at a recent service”

3. In these troubled times, "Stayin' Alive" is an expression of hope.

Something we all want to do as long as possible.

5. on a related note, if you ever have to give cpr, remember "stayin' alive"

it has a nearly perfect beat for the rate at which you're supposed to do chest compressions.

8. I do know of one organist who was playing Pachelbel's Canon

As a processional, and her mind started wandering, until she realized that she was playing Blues Traveler's "Hook", which has a very similar chord structure.

9. I would have excommunicated the organist.

I hate that song.
