    Another thread gave me the idea to set this one up which is kind of counter character because I am
    a-religious myself yet can get totally immersed in such music.
    Start with;


    But then secular;

    Many more from all faiths and cultures so please contribute your favourites for us to all enjoy :)

    That film was actually very much about religion, based on the life story of an Edinburgh lad. You just can't get away from it can you, haha? ;) xx

    Okay one more and I promise I'll shush (actually, that's not strictly true....)

    I don't know if this song was big in the USA, but for anyone who was clubbing here (the UK) in the 90s, this was as close to spirituality as we got. I don't know anyone that doesn't get a slightly dozed smile on their face when they hear this:

    Totally have to share Matisyahu here. His early stuff was quite filled with reference to Jewish thought/belief/spirituality.

    I'm a huge Jason Mraz fan, he writes well and his songs serve a reminder that we are all human.

    This one is best played with volume @ "11"



    a bit long intro, worth the wait to 10:17 to see the hippie chicks trance dancing :D



    Best version of all….
