Sin songs challenge

Recommended Posts

OK guys, since it's Easter time, I thought about this:

What songs do you relate to the seven deadly sins? For example, Greed - "I Want It All" by Queen. It may be in the name of the song, in the lyrics or some suggestive path. I thought there should be a lot of rock, hard rock and metal songs to fit, but somehow I can't remember as many as I thought they shoud be :(

Besides, I was thinking more about songs from the last 3 decades - like '70s, '80s and '90s... It might be easyer to be songs from the last 5 or so years, but I thought more about classics - sins are classics, so I figured the songs might as well be

Anyway, here's mine:

1. Anger // Keep Me Hangin' On - Kim Wilde (lame, I know, but couldn't think better - which is stupid, hard rock and metal have greatexamples, I just can't remember any!)

2. Greed // Money - Pink Floyd

3. Gluttony // Red Red Wine - UB40

4. Envy // (OK, I'm doomed - couldn't think of single one for this!)

5. Lust // (Well, everything can go here, I know :) ) I Touch Myself - Divinyls, I Want Your Sex - George Michael, Sodomy - Hair Soundtrack, Dancing With Myself - Billy Idol

6. Pride // (OK, I admit I equaled pride to vanity at some point :blush: ) Don't Fear The Reaper - Blue Oyster Cult, Everybody Wants To Rule The World - Tears For Fears, Notorious - Duran Duran, One And Only - Chesney Hawks, Simply Irresistible - Robert Palmer, The great Pretender - The Platters

7. Sloth // Taste It - INXS, Fat Bottomed Girls - Queen, Relax - Frankie Goes To Holliwood (long shot, I know, but I couldn't think of anythin else)

Well, what are your suggestions?

P.S. I mean no disrespect to this great occasion - Easter is probably the greatest among holidays in all Orthodox Christian countries. I just love to laugh and definitely think sense of humor is amongst Gods greatest gifts. :)
