I remember hearing Tom Jones belt out the hedonistic song "What's New, Pussycat" back in the 1960s. Now, it seems, the old rocker has come out with a gospel album. WORLD magazine (subscription required) reports on this rather surprising turn of events, along with an even stranger turn: a gospel album from punk rocker-turned-Christian Nina Hagen (I'm too old to know who she is, but some of our readers may recognize her name). If the reviewer, Arsenio Orteza, is correct, both albums are worth the time and money.
Have any of our Pointificators heard any of the gospel songs by either Mr. Jones or Ms. Hagen? If so, what do you think?
