Judee Sill: Jesus was a Cross Maker

My wake up song this week is a song I first heard a couple of years ago and found so original that I played it obsessively. The song ‘Jesus was a Cross Maker’ by the brilliant but troubled songwriter Judee Sill still fascinates me - it’s meaning is so elusive. Incidentally, her 1971 eponymous album, on which this song first appeared, is also lovely; I don’t fully understand the songs on that either, but what a gorgeous acoustic guitar sound! Hope you enjoy, lots of love tt.
