Bosom of Abraham

The feeling is hard to describe, but you know it when it comes. It’s physical. An orgasmic ripple coming through every cell of your body. As a recent newspaper article suggested, some people have it during “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out” and some people don’t ever have it (sorry bastards). 

I guess it would have to be “Lonely Stretch” by The Triffids. Every last God-fearing moment of it. When Dave McComb gets to the climax, the line ‘rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham’ becomes literal.
