Godley and Creme – Cry – Battered Version – with Karen Grassle – scripture version

“Cry” by Godley & Creme is based on:

Godley & Creme – A Little Piece of Heaven -1988 American homemade video

Godley & Creme – A Little Piece of Heaven- Scripture Version

Leviticus 13:2 

2 “When anyone has a swelling or a rash or a shiny spot on their skin that may be a defiling skin disease,[a] they must be brought to Aaron the priest or to one of his sons[b] who is a priest.

Isaiah 7:20

20 In that day the Lord will use a razor hired from beyond the Euphrates River—the king of Assyria—to shave your head and private parts, and to cut off your beard also.

Matthew 25:1 

The Parable of the Ten Virgins
25 “At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.

Godley & Creme – Snack Attack (Food Version)

Snack Attack is unfortunately just about a one-joke album — and the joke is over about halfway through the title cut, a rap about too much food and too little willpower. There are high points here and there, especially with the haunting “Under Your Thumb” and the jubilant Motown pastiche of “Wedding Bells” (which had a wonderful video to go with it), but far too much of the album is taken up with self-indulgent rubbish such as “The Party, ” “The Problem” and the amazingly awful “Ready for Ralph.” It’s no wonder that the duo went off to develop a career making rock videos.
