Hackskeptic’s 500 Greatest Songs: The Stone Roses – I Am The Resurrection

stone

371 – The Stone Roses – I Am The Resurrection (1989/1992)
Written by Ian Brown and John Squire
Produced by John Leckie
Label – Silvertone

“I Am The Resurrection” could have made it into the top 500 as a superb 60s styled 4 minute pop single, but the inspired instrumental outro makes it easy to pass on even more superlatives. One often forgets what good musicians The Stone Roses were and the final four minutes is a testament to John Squire’s nimble lead guitar, Mani’s lean bass line and Reni’s rhythmical versatility. It’s a fitting climax to one of the great debut albums of all time.

  1. God I love this song. This and The Beatles’ “The End” are some of the only songs where I can actually sing along to every guitar part because they are so well-written.

    • You’re right, it is an outstanding song and it’s such a tragedy that The Stone Roses never reached the potential they were capable of.
