"Prayer in C" is a song by French-Israeli folk pop duo Lilly Wood and the Prick, originally released on their album Invincible Friends in 2010.

In 2014, German DJ and record producer Robin Schulz remixed the song, and the remix was re-released in June 2014. Schulz re-mixed the song, using a CD of Invincible Friends as the source. He initially made his remix available as a free download, to the consternation of the copyright owners, Wagram Music.[1]

The Schulz remix topped the charts in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Luxembourg, France, the Netherlands, Belgium (both Flanders and Wallonia regions), Greece, Italy, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Denmark, Finland, Mexico, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. This track also reached the top 10 in Australia and New Zealand and charted in the top 40 in Canada and United States. In September 2014, Kiesza covered the song on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge.[2][3]

Background[edit]

The song gets its title from the fact that its lyrics are in the form of a prayer and it is recorded in the key of C. Genius suggests that the "Yah" at the beginning of the song is an abbreviation of "Yahweh", which specifically sends the prayer towards the Judaeo-Christian God.[4]
