Spiritual expression in secular songs
Secular lyrics often speak of a search for meaning and explore emotions such love, hope and fear. It is not surprising then that we sometimes hear religious or spiritual themes in the lyrics of popular songs. Crossroads by Don McLean seems to me to touch on the idea faith is a journey and that ,although we may find ourselves walking unexpected paths, it is the journeying itself and the closeness to God that the journey brings that matters.
