This is more "Just for fun" but anyway, does anyone want to own up to having religious songs on their mp3 player/music collection.
Religion forms a big part in all cultures so I don't think I'm alone here....
Amazing Grace(i) - Elvis Presley // He's the King of Rock and Roll!!
Amazing Grace(ii) - Bagpipes // I like bagpipes
Athair Ar Neamh - Enya // I like Enya and I'm not ashamed to admit it
Lady of Knock - Frank Patterson // Being from Mayo involved the annual trip up (with the random theft from stalls
If I ever lose my Faith in you - Sting // It's quazi religious I suppose
Ave Maria - Andrea Bocelli // Beautiful
Hallelujah - Leonord Cohen // It's a classic
One Love - Bob Marley // Pretty Religious
The Prayer - Celine Dion feat. Andrea Bocelli
My Forever Friend - Charlie Landsborough // What????
What if God was one of us - Cheryl Crow
Delirium Tremens - Christy Moore // Blas-for-me
Jesus Christ & Jessie James - Christy Moore // Blas-for-you
A few Random songs from Boney M
As a Korn fan, I have the ex-guitarists solo album he made when he left and became a born again Christian, it's crazy.
Quick Question - how religious are Depeche Mode - there is a lot of references on some of their songs
Does anyone else want to own up??
As far as atheist/anti-religious music, I have music from an excellent Spanish (Galacian) band called Mägo de Oz
(Wizard of Oz) a band that could be replicated in Ireland, with such audible treats like Polla dura no cree en Dios
(Hard cock doesn't believe in God) or El Árbol de la Noche Tris
(the Árbol of the sad night) - the Árbol is the name given to a two thousand year old tree where the Conquestador Hernan Cortez cried after a humiliating defeat by the Aztecs. The theme of the song is anti-Spanish conquests and conversions of the Americas. By the way if you find yourself in the Mexican state of Oaxaca you can see the tree which is every Pareidolia enthusiasts wet dream, and nearby church has the sickest reposing Christ. Mexican Churches have battered and bloody Christ reposing, but this one in particular has a dead baby with three statuettes of the Magi from the east, quite disturbing.
Their album "Belfast" had the theme of sectarian violence in Northern Ireland.
But for a bit of Mägo de Oz watch this, cool song (Fiesta Pagana
(Pagan Party)) it captures their humour although it's a big tongue in cheek, but this has been a "floor-filler" in Spanish Nite Clubs (the kind frequented by Spanish People who avoid tourist areas). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amHsAm1TXFk
