I really like this track, good beat, cool organ, Joan's freaking awesome, and a song about us 99%; insta 8 from me.

You get a better resonance when you play percussion instruments under a table.  As a bonus, if someone else "drinks you under the table", there's always a set of castanets or bongos down there for you to noodle around with.

Clearly, silly is in the mind of the listener. In much the same way that the blindly religious will see the influence of some sort of diety in everything, one way or another, anti-religious nonbelievers may read religious statements into innocuous statements, works of art, offhand statements, etc. These comment sections are often revealing in ways not intended by the poster.

 
Clearly, you've made assumptions you shouldn't have, at least about my comment. She has several songs with religious connotations, such as One Of Us, Shake The Devil, Holy Waters, Man In The Long Black Coat, and so on. I didn't read religious statements into them.

I don't go about trying to convince religious believers on atheism or agnosticism or a religion different from theirs. I don't appreciate when they try to convince me of their religion or to tell me how wonderful they think it is.

Love the backing vocals and the discrete offbeat organ chord.

gets a bit repetitive, eh?
But I heard that guitar and knew immediately it was Nels Cline, so that was sweet.

It would be more apt if this were The Mongrels singing their smash hit "Joan Osborne"

It's not. Then again Daft Punk isn't any "better" than this song or any other. I happen to enjoy both D'Punk and Joan.

Ha!  And all that's good, that arises out of the human species, comes from us mongrels.  Unfortunately so, too, all that's bad.   WOOF!

So it goes.
