Elder Van De Graaff's Infinite Playlist

At the risk of turning this blog into some sort of music blog as opposed to a cartoon blog, I'm going to mention music for the second entry in a row.

The other day as I was driving to work, I heard Coldplay's Viva la Vida on the radio. And as I listened it dawned on me that the song would make a great addition to my missionary playlist. (what with the line: "My missionaries in a foreign field.")

So far that playlist looks like this:
  • Viva la Vida - Coldplay
  • Missionary Man - Eurythmics
  • Who Can It Be Now? - Men at Work (door to door tracting song)
  • Iron Lion Zion - Bob Marley
  • Pretty much anything from U2's The Joshua Tree album. Seeing as how they were investigating the Church at the time, right? (Right?)
While I realize acceptable music varies from mission to mission, I doubt there's a Mission President in the Church who wouldn't approve this playlist.


  1. Don't forget about The Proclaimers, I think you can count anything by that band too. Besides they talk about walking 500 miles, I think I did that on my mission walking door to door.

  2. How about Paul McCartney's Wings' song "Let 'em in"?
