god songs

i've been tagged by bob carlton to list my top ten songs about God. here we go. in no particular order:

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For by U2
Shelter From the Storm by Bob Dylan (and i love the version by Jimmy Lafave)
Across the Universe by The Beatles
Higher Ground by Stevie Wonder
Beyond These Shores by Iona
Where the Streets Have No Name by U2
True by Sheila Chandra
Woodstock by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
I'm Not Worried At All by Moby
Agnus Dei by Rufus Wainwright

these songs speak to me. are they about god? are they about what my experience of god is like? whatever.

oh man, for 0.1 second i thought (and/or prayed and/or rejoiced) that you had listed for #4 "higher love" by steve winwood. which, all '80s cheese aside, could maybe also be a spiritually meaningful song to some.

i think it may have disturbed dave more than i realized that "higher love" was on the mix cd i was playing last week. i hope he'll make it through okay ... :-)
and, hey, that awesome cd has happy songs from all the decades since the 50s ... and 80s ...
ready? i was 26 when that song came out. so who knows what y'all in your mid 20s have to look forward to ...
