The number seven holds great importance in many of the world's religions. In the old testament God created the universe in 7 days, the feast of Passover lasted 7 days, the Menorah holds 7 candles, there are 7 things that are detestable to the Lord. In the new testament, Jesus multiplies 7 loaves to feed the masses, there are 7 gifts of the holy spirit, 7 heavenly virtues, 7 deadly sins, and 7 sacraments in the Catholic church.
In Hinduism, the Sapta Rishi are 7 stars named after 7 saints, there are 7 worlds in the universe, and 7 Chakras. In Islam, there are 7 layers of the Earth, 7 skies, 7 levels of heaven, and 7 doors to hell. In Buddhism, it is said that the Buddha walked 7 steps after being born.
So for some reason, 7 is a very important number. And as such you can find it used by artists a great deal.
For this playlist I have gathered together a 25 song list of "7 songs".
