"Faith" by George Michael is my favorite for personal reasons. I remember the time period when the song was a hit as being one of the happiest times
of my life. I also love the iconoclastic aspect of the song because I generally despise the concept of faith.*
* "Faith is a device of self-delusion, a sleight of hand done with words and emotions founded on any irrational notion that can be dreamed up. Faith
is the attempt to coerce truth to surrender to whim. In simple terms, it is trying to breathe life into a lie by trying to out shine reality with the
beauty of wishes. Faith is the refuge of fools, the ignorant, and the deluded,not of thinking, rational men." - Terry Goodkind
I don't know if "Jesus, I / Mary Star Of The Sea" by Zwan was intended to be an indictment of Christianity (and probably faith in general), but that's
how I interpret the song. That's one reason I love it.

Herbert von Karajan's take lack balls.

On account that I played it over and over again for a couple of days as a favor editing the songs for an event.
