|[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJfJPxLntZU ''Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition'']
 +
|Written by Frank Loesser; made famous by Kay Kyser and His Orchestra
 +
|A patriotic song written and published as sheet music in 1942; Kay Kyser's recording came out in 1943. This rousing tune is about a chaplain (called a "sky pilot" in the song) who is with some men on a warship in the heat of a battle. One of the soldiers asks the chaplain to pray for the men shooting at the enemy aircraft. In response, the chaplain puts down his Bible, mans one of the gun turrets on the ship, and begins firing at the planes himself, and tells the soldiers, "Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition, and we'll all stay free!" Beyond the obvious pro-Christian and pro-American messages, it also tells us that sometimes, the Lord calls on us to put down the Bible and pick up our guns to defend the American way.  #1 hit on the Billboard charts.

|''22 Acacia Avenue''
|Written by Frank Loesser; made famous by Kay Kyser and His Orchestra
+
|Iron Maiden
|A patriotic song written and published as sheet music in 1942; Kay Kyser's recording came out in 1943. This rousing tune is about a chaplain (called a "sky pilot" in the song) who is with some men on a warship in the heat of a battle. One of the soldiers asks the chaplain to pray for the men shooting at the enemy aircraft. In response, the chaplain puts down his Bible, mans one of the gun turrets on the ship, and begins firing at the planes himself, and tells the soldiers, "Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition, and we'll all stay free!" Beyond the obvious pro-Christian and pro-American messages, it also tells us that sometimes, the Lord calls on us to put down the Bible and pick up our guns to defend the American way.

|A song that might very well be about the hope Christianity offers the world. The person the singer talks with can be construed as a cynical atheist who has a sad outlook on life due to his lack of belief in a higher power. The singer on the other hand still has hope, as she knows there is a God. In the final lines she sings about flying over horses. This might interpreted to mean that like all of mankind she too experienced physical death, but due her belief in Jesus found her way onto Heaven.

Goodbye Horses Q Lazzarus A song that might very well be about the hope Christianity offers the world. The person the singer talks with can be construed as a cynical atheist who has a sad outlook on life due to his lack of belief in a higher power. The singer on the other hand still has hope, as she knows there is a God. In the final lines she sings about flying over horses. This might interpreted to mean that like all of mankind she too experienced physical death, but due her belief in Jesus found her way onto Heaven. ? New Wave

Songs "Classical" Artist Comments- Billboard Rank Subgenre
Messiah Handel Named for the Son who saved us N/A Romantic Era

Debatable Whether Conservative

The top five in a poll of the greatest songs in the 20th century, according to the Recording Industry Association of America and the NEA:

  • Over the Rainbow (Judy Garland)
  • White Christmas (Bing Crosby)
  • Respect (Aretha Franklin)
  • American Pie (Don McLean)

Also questionable:

  • Hammer to Fall (Queen) - talks about being hopeful for the Soviet Union falling
  • Rocky Raccoon (Beatles) - has multiple references to Gideon's Bible
  • Been to Hell (Hollywood Undead)-Despite the large amount of swearing, it talks about the destructive nature of Hollywood, including how Hollywood and the quest for fame can cause someone to lose their faith. It also criticizes Hollywood values.
  • Only the Good Die Young (Billy Joel)-a boy tries to convince a Catholic girl to have sex with him rather than practice abstinence. Although it contains a lot of anti-religious dialogue (from the boy's perspective), in the end the girl holds true to her values, and nothing happens between them.
  • Still the One by Orleans - a very good song about marital fidelity. However, one of the singers, John Hall, later became a Democratic Congressman from New York and sued Republican presidential candidate John McCain over the use of the song
  • My Sweet Lord (George Harrison) - Love for religion and having a relationship with God even uses hallelujah, though many Hindu undertones.
  • Because I got high (Afroman) - Although a song about Marijuana, the singer mentions drug use leading to him loosing his kids and wife, messing up his life, failing a class, skipping work, and losing his car.
  • Where is the love (Black Eyed Peas) - Main message questioning why are people ignoring their Christian beliefs, and asking for Help from church and God. Condemns both racism, and terrorism, and also claims the idea of joining gangs and doing drugs is wrong. However it also dis promotes the idea of war, and promotes peace making.
  • Grow a Pear (Kesha) -Song's message is manning up, but the singer Kesha is a pro-LGBT homosexual agenda activist.
  • All My Friends (Snakehips) - the song's message is how terrible clubs actually are, instead of the hype that's falsely given to them. However, the song is explicit. Sample lyric: "All my friends are wasted, and I hate this club and I drink too much; another Friday night I've wasted.."
