Okay folks, we are all secure atheists, right? This question is just for fun! What religious themed songs have you caught yourself singing along with, or at least taping your foot to? Here are two songs that get me every time: Three Wooden Crosses sung by Randy Travis & Jesus Take the Wheel sung by Carrie Underwood.
Dear God.. Jonas Brothers =) great song except the last line =D
Wow, strikes me as sort of a crappy rip-off of the great atheistic song "Dear God" by XTC.
How about Burn In Hell by Dimmu Borgir?
or any of that Satanic death metal stuff.
huh. that's actually a Twisted Sister tune. hadn't heard this cover before.
Stairway to Heaven is loaded with religious symbology from the Order of the Golden Dawn, which Jimmy Page was heavily involved in when writing it. He was living in Aleister Crowley's house,for that matter.
July of 1973 in Seattle 3 hours of Zeppelin, Stair Way to Heaven was spectacular. Endorphins were flowing that night.
"Yes I'm going ta get me religion
I'm going a join the Baptist church
you know I wanna be a baptist preacher so I won't have to work."
Son House: Preachin Blues
Edwin Hawkins's Oh Happy Day rocks my socks.
This music makes me want to dance and sing with Jesus!
I'm not religious, but when Jennifer Warnes sings Joan of Arc, it gives me chills.
With Jesus as her groom and the flames consuming her as her wedding dress.
Great poetry. Bad theology.
(If you're getting deja vu all over again, it's because when I originally posted this for some reason I misidentified the song as Song Of Bernadette.)
Flyleaf has some christian-y lyrics, but I still like them.
