    I beg to differ, every song that does not have God or gods in it belong to
    them, unless they don't want it, since they seem to like having things both
    ways. So name the topic ...death, broken lives, and so all belong to them
    like every happy song that doesn't have gods or God in them.

    Here are the lyrics


    A little tune called "Atheists Don't Have No Songs"

    [Lyrics]

    (Christians have)
    Christians have their hymns and pages.
    (Hymns and pages)
    Hava Nagila's for the Jews.
    (For the Jews)
    Baptists have the rock of ages.
    (Rock of ages)
    Atheists just sing the blues.

    (Romantics play)
    Romantics play Claire de Lune.
    (Claire de Lune)
    Born agains sing He is risen.
    But no one ever wrote a tune.
    (Wrote a tune)
    For godless existentialism.
    (For godless existentialism)

    For Atheists,
    There's no good news.
    They'll never sing,
    A song of faith.

    In their songs,
    They have a rule.
    The "he" is always lowercase.
    The "he" is always lowercase.

    (Some folks sing)
    Some folks sing a Bach cantata.
    (Bach cantata)
    Lutherans get Christmas trees.
    Atheist songs add up to nada.
    (Up to nada)
    But they do have Sundays free.
    (Have Sundays free)

    (Pentecostals sing)
    Pentecostals sing, sing to heaven,
    (Sing to heaven)
    Gothics had the books of scrolls,
    (Numerologists count)
    Numerologists count, count to seven,
    (Count to seven)
    Atheists have rock and roll.

    For Atheists,
    There's no good news.
    They'll never sing,
    A song of faith.

    In their songs,
    They have a rule.
    The "he" is always lowercase.
    The "he" is always lowercase.

    Catholics,
    Dress up for Mass.
    And listen to,

    Atheists,
    Just take a pass.
    Watch football in their underpants.

    I enjoyed it.

    Its interesting how there was a whole thread on this forum with theists trying desperately to tell us atheists that our atheism defines us, with us denying it and basically saying that our atheism is merely a lack of belief in God, not a religion of our own.
    I think the fact that atheists do not have specifically atheist songs proves our side of that discussion.

    On a side note, I heard my son playing a song earlier in which there is the phrase 'Thats me in the corner, that's me in the spotlight, loosing my religion'.

    Thanks JS. Good lyrics. I can never find these youtube links when I key them in.

    (It's possible I'm having the same problem finding god.)

    I posted that song about a year ago, Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, good musician, that's how he got his start.

    How bout this one, Eileen McGann "Wisdom Guide me'

    YouTube

    She has a better recorded version but this one is live from a house concert, Canadian singer songwriter.

    Notice it isn't GOD be my guide but a human attribute.

    Here is her myspace version, when I went there there was a stupid Paul McCartney song going, hope you can get around that:

    https://myspace.com/eileenmcgann/music/song/wisdom-guide-me-17948757-17749942

    In the first version of the song, she is more or less in drop d tuning but in the second, it's a bit higher, maybe just the way she tuned the guitar or maybe with a capo on the first fret doing a drop d tuning. It makes a nice guitar fingerpicking tune BTW. I really love this song.

    I guess she didn't have a snark...

    People find that song ("losing my religion" ) quite 'spiritual' and liberating.

    I've been playing it here and there for twenty years, so I should have some idea.

    And I got a song called "God is such a stupid word", which often gets a smile, which sounds like the title to an atheist song if I've ever heard one.
