About Doctor and the Medics:

Doctor and the Medics are a London based psychedelic rock band, which enjoyed their greatest success in the 1980s, and are best known for their UK No. 1 song, “Spirit in the Sky“. The band currently perform, with a different line-up, as a tribute act to various artists. The Doctor (Clive Jackson, born 7 July 1961 in Knotty Ash, Liverpool), a former London-based DJ, formed the group with guitarist Steve McGuire, drummer Vom (aka Steve Ritchie), and bassist Richard Searle and female dancers and singers The Anadin Brothers in 1981. The group adopted a look inspired by both 1960s psychedelia and kabuki make-up similar to that of Kiss. “Spirit in the Sky” is a song written and originally recorded[5] by Norman Greenbaum and released in late 1969. Bauhaus covered “Spirit In the Sky” on their 1983 single “Sanity Assassin”. In 1986 the group Doctor and the Medics reached #1 in the UK singles chart with their version of the song, while the same year punk band Fuzzbox released their own less successful version.

lyrics:

When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that’s best
When they lay me down to die
Goin’ on up to the Spirit in the sky

Goin’ on up to the Spirit in the sky
That’s where I’m gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
I’m gonna go to the place that’s the best

Prepare yourself, you know it a must
Gotta have a friend named Jesus
So you know that when you die
It’s gonna recommend you to the Spirit in the sky

Goin’ on up to the Spirit in the sky
That’s where you’re gonna go when you die
When I die and they lay me to rest
I’m gonna go to the place that’s the best

Never been a sinner, I’ve never sinned
I’ve got a friend named Jesus
So you know that when I die
It’s gonna set me up with the Spirit in the sky

Goin’ on up to the Spirit in the sky
That’s where you’re gonna go when you die
When I die and they lay me to rest
I’m gonna go to the place that’s the best

Goin’ on up to the Spirit in the sky
That’s where you’re gonna go when you die
When I die and they lay me to rest
I’m gonna go to the place that’s the best
Gonna go to the place that’s the best
Gonna go to the place that’s the best
Gonna go to the place that’s the best
Gonna go to the place that’s the best
