Great songs about church aren't hard to find, even from unlikely church-goers, like Kanye West,  Green Day, or The Stone Temple Pilots. If you're struggling to get out the door in order to make it to Sunday worship, we've put together a list of the best church songs to help you get into the (holy) spirit. Some of these songs are about going to church, and not all of them are worship songs if that's what you're looking for.

Patsy Cline, who began her career in a Baptist church choir, landed two of the best church songs on the list: "I Go to Church on a Sunday," and "A Church, a Courtroom, and Then Goodbye." Lady Gaga, always pushing boundaries, fuses sex and church in her hit, "Electric Church." And recent Australian stand-out Hozier, tops the list with his gripping, down-tempo "Take Me to Church." 

Vote up the best songs about church below, and be sure to add any that we may have forgotten!
