978. roll away the stone

“A 1973 single from Mott the Hoople concerning the alleged resurrection of Jesus Christ. I think. I mean, that’s what it means to roll away the stone, isn’t it? To rise from the dead, roll away the boulder that’s sealing the exit from your tomb, and get back out there, redeem all humanity forever and ever, amen, and party, rejoice, turn more water into wine, shake a leg, maybe dance some rockabilly.  Not bad for a three minute pop song.” (Philip Random)
