How do you positively affirm the lack of a thing Ours is the best no god ever?
It's going to be tough to find much-- as you say (eta- and monta just mentioned as well), most music that comes to mind is not an affirmation of atheism so much as a critique of religion particularly fundamentalists.These are all very good, but I've noticed that the majority of them (with "Imagine" and maybe one or two others an exception) take a stance of denial of theism rather than a positive affirmation of atheism/secularism.
If you're willing to take a freethought song rather than one that's explicitly atheist, the song that tops my list in this category is Pete Seeger's version of Die Gedanken sind frei ("Thoughts are Free"). Judging by the translation, I'd probably like the German as well, but I don't speak the language.What I was (badly) trying to say is that there seemed to be a general anger and frustration in most of the music listed. Imagine, however, is life-affirming, and I was wondering if there were any other examples of joyful atheistic music out there.
