About this song

"One of Us" is a song written by Eric Bazilian (of The Hooters) and originally released by Joan Osborne. Released in March 1995 on the album Relish and produced by Rick Chertoff, it became a top 40 hit in November of that year. Lyrics The song deals with various aspects of belief in God by asking questions inviting the listener to consider how they might relate to God, such as "Would you call (God's name) to his face?" or "Would you want to see (God's face) if seeing meant that you would have to believe (in theological concepts)?" The title of the song comes from the refrain...
