In music, to call a song secular means that it’s not religious, or at least it comes without a Christian name tag. While there are a variety of great worship songs in the Christian genre of music, I often find songs that aren’t intended to be songs of faith can be more inspirational.
In this post, I have highlighted a few (secular) songs in which I draw inspiration for my faith, even if the artist didn’t intend it in that way. Hopefully, you will enjoy them as well. (If anyone could connect me with Brandon Flowers or Brett Dennen, I’d love to interview them sometime.)
Brett Dennen – “There Is So Much More”
I wonder how so many can be in so much pain,
while others don’t seem to feel a thing.
Then I curse my whiteness
and I get so damn depressed.
In a world of suffering,
why should I be so blessed?
Brandon Flowers – “Playing With Fire”
Ten thousand Demons hammer down with every footstep,
Ten thousand Angels rush the wind against my back.
The church of mine may not be recognised by steeple,
That doesn’t mean that I will walk without a God.
The Wallflowers – “How Good It Can Get”
Take a deep breath
And hold it in tight
And put your face up
Right into the light
Can’t you feel that full moon
Shining down on you
Help is coming
From the great unknown
