This is a very interesting point and as an areligious person it definitely appeals but for me, even in 1990 or 1991 when I first heard the song, I equated Kiss Me, Son of God with Donald Trump. If like me you’re a child of not only the 80s but of the NY/NJ area, you’d have been constantly exposed to Trump’s brand of narcissistic self-promotion. the song has only gotten more spot on as the years have passed imo. Give it a listen with that in mind and ( I hope) enjoy the nuances. Love your blog it’s a lot of fun 🥰

Oh my gosh I can totally enjoy this on that level for sure! It’s funny you mention it because when I listen their song “When Will You Die?” I would hear it and think of Trump as well. And also of a particular person in my life that was making existence unbearable.
