"the noticeable increase of religious or spiritual lyrics in mainstream music"

In an article awkwardly titled "Pop Music Revives its Embrace of Spirituality and Religion," the Newhouse News Service reflects on lots of examples of that embrace, including the Chris Milk version (stream it) of Kanye West's video for "Jesus Walks," the song "Heaven" by Los Lonely Boys (listen), and Switchfoot's "Meant to Live." Along with several others, Scott Stapp, whose solo single "Relearn Love" is featured on "The Passion of the Christ: Songs" CD, is interviewed. Also showing up is, of course, U2, but side by side with a mysterious second band who seem to be called "Bono and The Edge." I'm not kidding; scroll way down to the comment about Stapp and his parents.
