This song was also used as the theme for the 1960–68 British action/adventure/mystery TV series Danger Man, which was broadcast in the United States as Secret Agent. NA Rock

Classical music

Songs "Classical" Artist Comments- Billboard Rank Subgenre
Messiah George Frideric Handel The classic oratorio, especially popular around Christmastime, praises the Son who saved humanity by telling the stories of the Prophets who foretold his coming to earth, the annunciation to the shepherds of Christ's birth, the Passion of Christ, and finally the resurrection of the dead and Christ's glorification in heaven. 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.
  • 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.."
