Inspired by my post Songs for the God of Song, I was just looking over my iPod playlists and I see that I’ve got a good collection of music that either reminds me of various gods, or was written for them. I believe in promoting good music, and I know that other people are interested in music for the gods, so I wanted to post a list of what I’ve got. It’s pretty long already for a post, and will no doubt grow in time so I’m giving it its own page to make it more manageable and readable. I’ve got two subsets here- songs that are obviously inspired by/written for a particular deity and songs that remind me of a particular deity, no matter why they were actually written. The division is pretty subjective- most of the music in the first category is actually named for the god in question. Most of the music in the second is not. I’ll try to keep it in alphabetical order by god name.

Note: this will be an ongoing work. For now, I have song titles and artists. I eventually hope to add album titles and links to artists sites wherever I can.
