Description
"Rivers of Babylon" is a spiritual song written in 1970 Brent Dowe and Trevor McNaughton of the Jamaican Melodians components.
The text is Psalm 137 of the Bible (the King James Version of the Bible), which deals of the exile of the Jewish people in Babylon after the conquest of Jerusalem in 586 BC. Describes the longing of the Jews that sat weeping on the banks of the rivers of Babylon (which are the Tigris and Euphrates), reminiscent of Jerusalem and refuse to sing a joyful song in a foreign land.
The most famous version of this song is the group Boney M., which was released as a single in 1978 and was No. 1 in the UK music charts for five weeks. In the UK version has sold over 1,985,000 copies and achieved three times platinum.
