"Spiritual" Songs

Last but not least in my latest series of posts, there's this set of "Spiritual" Songs. Ironically, the overwhelming majority of them are by "secular" artists. But that doesn't diminish the songs' value (or enhance it) in any way. There's some really good stuff to be heard here! Enjoy!  ~  JH



1)  Jukebox The Ghost  ~  “The Spiritual”




2)  Eric Benet  ~  “Spiritual Thang”




3)  Moodswings ft. Chrissie Hynde  ~  “Spiritual High (State Of Independence)”




4)  Paul Wardingham  ~  “Spiritual Machines”




5)  John Coltrane  ~  “Spiritual”




6)  Anya Skidan  ~  “Spiritual”




7)  Blitzen Trapper  ~  “Miss Spiritual Tramp”




8)  Strawberry Girls  ~  “Negro Spiritual”  (I have no clue what the title of this song has to do with the actual song. It certainly doesn’t describe the style of music accurately. Also, these musicians are super-white and they’re NOT girls. Makes no sense, but whatevs.)




9)  Laura Nyro  ~  “Mother’s Spiritual”




10)  Gordon Lightfoot  ~  “Rich Man’s Spiritual”




11)  Speech  ~  “Spiritual People”




12)  Spain ft. The Haden Triplets  ~  “Spiritual”




13)  Toots & The Maytals  ~  “Spiritual Healing”




14)  Bon Jovi  ~  “Spiritual Warfare”  (This music video, while titled “Spiritual Warfare,” is actually a medley – of sorts – of two differently-titled songs: “Living With The Ghost” and “Reunion”.)




15)  Katy Perry  ~  “Spiritual”




16)  Toto  ~  “Spiritual Man”




17)  Dirty Sweet  ~  “American Spiritual”
