By Michael J. Gilmour

notwithstanding American attitudes towards faith replaced dramatically throughout the Nineteen Sixties, curiosity in spirituality itself by no means reduced.

Probing the lyrical canons of seminal artists together with Cat Stevens, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Joni Mitchell, Neil younger, U2, Ozzy Osbourne, Pearl Jam, Madonna, and Kanye West, Gilmour considers the ways—and purposes why--pop music’s secular poets and prophets followed spiritual words, motifs, and sacred texts.
