Most Popular Song Categories?

While looking at some lyrics on a song interpretation site, I noticed in the side bar a list of “popular song categories.” These are the kinds of songs people on the web come looking more most frequently on this site. This is what I saw:

Songs About Being Sorry/Apology songs

Songs about Not Being Good Enough

Songs about Bad Relationships

Songs about Suicide

Songs about Death

Songs about Being a Loser

Songs with Religious Themes

Songs about Sex

Songs about Mental Illness

Friends, this list tells me it’s a sad, sad world out there. But I find it interesting that “religious themes” is among these categories. To me all of the categories taken as a piece pretty much sum up the condition of man—suffering, sorrowing, sinning and dying, and through it all, searching for something beyond themselves.

Just some food for thought as you go about your day.
