I have lots that I kind think of right now blush except

Everything - Michael Buble
Power of love - Frankie goes to Hollywood
Thank you for the Music- Abba
Not while I'm around- From Sweeney Todd
Love changes everything

Anyone else?

Definitely You'll Never Walk Alone. I wanted it at our wedding, but my husband (Liverpool season ticket holder) vetoed it. I REALLY want it at my funeral, but Liverpool supporting kids say it will spoil matches for them in future. So it looks as though I won't ever get it, but to me it tells me that there's someone out there looking out for me.

Simple Kind of Man blush because my grandfather loved it and it was how he lived his life. We played it at his funeral.

White Shadows - Coldplay

Oh, lots!

Anything by Mumford and Son, but especially Sigh No More, The Cave, and Awake My Soul. Oh, and After the Storm.

Keane - Hamburg Song
Kate Bush - The Man with a Child in his Eyes.
David Bowie - Word on a Wing (which actually is a prayer / 'religious' song, but from a non-religious singer / person. It's very anguished and expressive and speaks volumes).

And many more I can't think of right now!

Something inside so strong
and yes, Power of Love but the video is a nativity scene

Kate bush - running up that hill

You raise me up by Westlife blush
Angels - Robbie Williams
Fix you - Coldplay
Let it be by Paul McCartney, I guess that has religious undertones in any case

Actually any music I think is decent is spiritual to me as I see God in everything good smile

Oh and Stand by Me and Footprints in the Sand spring to mind too. And Lovely Day smile
