Secular Songs That Remind Me of Vatican II
Land of Confusion- Disturbed's version
Duran Duran:  Come Undone.  The video is an appropriately named sendup of Vatican II and it's aftermath, it's even full of images of feminine men, crossdressers, devastation, drowning imagery, flames, sensuality, materialism etc.  It could be video straight out of some of the more notorious seminaries.  (watch only if you won't find it tempting. )   Good song though for a pop tune.

The lyrics even fit the situation.

"Come Undone"

Mine, immaculate dream made breath and skin
I've been waiting for you
Signed, with a home tattoo,
Happy birthday to you was created for you

(can't ever keep from falling apart
At the seams
Can't I believe you're taking my heart
To pieces)

Oh, it'll take a little time,
Might take a little crime
To come undone now

We'll try to stay blind
To the hope and fear outside
Hey child, stay wilder than the wind
And blow me in to cry

Who do you need, who do you love
When you come undone

[Verse 2]
Words, playing me deja vu
Like a radio tune I swear I've heard before
Chill, is it something real
Or the magic I'm feeding off your fingers

(Can't ever keep from falling apart
At the seams
Can I believe you're taking my heart
To pieces)

Lost, in a snow filled sky, we'll make it alright
To come undone now

For those in their late 40's and early 50's,  Jigsaw's  "Sky High" 

Blown Round By The Wind
Thrown Down In a Spin

I Gave You Love
I Thought That We Had Made It To The Top
I Gave You All I Had To Give
Why Did It Have To Stop

You've Blown It All Sky High
By Telling Me a Lie
Without a Reason Why
You've Blown It All Sky High

You, You've Blown It All Sky High
Our Love Had Wings To Fly
We Could Have Touched The Sky
You've Blown It All Sky High

Up Round I've Flown
Then Down Down Like a Stone
"Sabotage" - The Beastie Boys

"This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius..........."  :o
Definitely a Brady Bunch song, but I'm not sure which one. 

Is it "Sunshine Day?"

Can't you dig the sunshine?
Love and sun are the same!
Can't you hear him callin' your name?

or is it  "Time to Change"?

Are you trying to make friends?  I'd say you're doing a good job.
I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news,
But she just smiled and turned away.
I went down to the sacred store
Where I'd heard the music years before,
But the man there said the music wouldnt play.

And in the streets: the children screamed,
The lovers cried, and the poets dreamed.
But not a word was spoken;
The church bells all were broken.
And the three men I admire most:
The Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost,
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died.

I Started Something I Couldn't Finish
Paint a Vulgar Picture
Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now
