Pop songs you hate to admit you once liked a little even though they mention God
Gentle reader don't judge me to harshly, but when I was just a tyke (and a fervent xtian still) I remember liking the sound of this. It does not make me proud.

“Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly;
Man got to sit and wonder 'why, why, why?'
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand.”

― Kurt Vonnegut, Cat's Cradle

Doesn't mention God but does talk about praying hard (and the songwriter is a Christian), and I'm sure it's cheesy, but I like this song. More than a little.

The whole pop/rock musicians mentioning God doesn't really bother me if I'm honest. If it did, it would just get in the way of some great tunes.

I draw the line at Preachy though ... and love a good anti-god song! Smile

Okay then. Here's one I still like too. I like that it co-opts the terminology and points out how un-xtian the standard interpretation really is. Oh I think his voice is easy to listen too.

I thought I had the perfect one, but it turns out it was nothing but a Freudian slip.

I always remembered dave dee dozy beaky mick & tich singing God bless the loos of England, but it's only Long Live ...

Guess even the 60ies weren't redy for what I remembered. Here's one that definetely fits the bill.

This wasn't really a pop song but I always liked the "Amen" song in the movie, Lilies of the Field with Sidney Poitier. He isn't singing this, someone else did the singing.




Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

The arrangement is by Jester Hairston, who was later a featured actor on a sitcom called "Amen."

When this song came out my CCD teachers went nuts playing it. Still a fun song.
