Episcopal Café has just received this urgent request:
As you may recall, GC2009 say the introduction of an unofficial theme song for the gathering: “I Will Survive (General Convention).”
I have now been tasked with writing an appropriate theme song for GC2012. The possibilities are, of course, nearly endless in terms of matters to spoof and tunes to employ. You can imagine how greatly this great responsibility weighs on me.
I therefore wish to have a Churchwide Consultation on the Theme Song of the 2012 General Convention of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society of The Episcopal Church. I have posted on Grace Notes about it:
I would be most grateful for the assistance of eCafé and other TEC/GC bloggers in spreading news of this urgent decision facing the church. Just think how awful this GC could be if we don’t instill some serious levity amidst the gathering.
Thank you for your prayers and support as I answer God’s call (well, actually it was Jackie Lynn who called me, but whatever) and undertake this solemn task.

Café newsblogger Torey Lightcap notes that it’s unthinkable that such a request should come without a Twitter hashtag, so he’s given it one, and tweeted a few suggestions under #GC77ThemeSongs.
Kurt Wiesner suggests David Bowie’s “Changes.” What other musical inspiration springs to mind?
