Other than John Lennon's "Imagine," is there another atheist/agnostic song.
The only one I can think of is "Dear God" by XTC.

Wow! Great song! Never heard it before. Thank you. Adding it to my stream.

@EricTrommater All her songs are "atheist". I love her blues sound.

@witchymom Good music too! She's a great addition to my Pandora. Thanks!

Shelley performed at ReasonCon in Hickory last year when I was there. She's amazing!

Wow, thanks for sharing!

Groovy Cool!

I like her!

Love him. White Wine in the Sun is my favorite Christmas song right now. Sums up exactly how I feel about the holidays.

I have never heard this but I like it

Let's see, and then there's the Dead Kennedys' "Religious Vomit"....

That was the one I thought of!

You couldn't do much better than Marilyn Manson's "Fight Song": "But I'm not a slave to a god / that doesn't exist / But I'm not a slave to a world / that doesn't give a shit." Plus the song kicks ass.

Perfect. I'm a huge fan.

This song gives me a case of the feels. I think it's more about the human condition of searching for meaning but I think it fits here.

"Freewill" by Rush:

Freewill is an illusion created by our egos to make us think that we are more than we are. Pierre Laplace got it right. But that is a Very cool song!

Also, Roger Waters from Pink Floyd: "God wants escudos God wants pesetas Don't send lira God don't want small potatoes God wants small towns God wants pain God wants clean up rock campaigns God wants widows God wants solution God wants TV God wants contributions."

Love Pink Floyd; my favorite.

I belive Stevie Wonder had a thing to say on the subject. "If you believe in things that you don't understand, then you suffer."

Man in the box by Alice in Chains

There are a couple of Atheist albums out there. “An Atheist Album,” by Shelley Sengal and “Baby Eater,” by Monster on Sunday. Or you could listen to bands like Moterhead, Metallica and Bad Religion.

My favorite is "God Thinks" by Voltaire

Ok. Don't get me going here. I'll just pick the first 3 that come to mind.

In our number 3 spot , we have the original "Everybody Knows" by Leonard Cohen. It's an upbeat little ditty- great for parties. Leonard was a hoot and a holler.

On our number 2 spot, we have Trent Reznor raging on about how "God is Dead" again. Why anyone would think that Johnny Cash covered his songs better than the originals boggles the mind and staggers the imagination. Maybe God really is dead.

And the winner our existentialism angst meltdown contest goes to Robert Smith of the Cure. The man admitted to getting shit-faced and writing whole albums about raw nihilism. The Head on the Door possibly being his greatest tribute to the matter.

Shelli Segal needs our help:

There are lots of them by Roy Harper " If ". "The same old rock " " The Game " are just a few that spring to mind. Also check out the start of Randy Newman's " Faust " if you can get past James Taylor as god then you have Randy as the devil singing " We`re a figment of their imagination ". A rare treat

There There by Radiohead. Maybe not an "atheist song" but with the lyrics "just cause you feel it, doesn't mean it's there" I feel confident adding it. It's a great song anyway.

Jethro Tull had a couple, my God and hymn 43 are two that I can think of.
