Although not from a collection of artists, I purchased a CD off of iTunes music store called:

Olympus  by Kelly Andrew Kaveny

It is twelve classical/orchestral songs, one for each Olympian. My favorites are: Ares, Poseidon, Athena, Hermos.
Poseidon is a very fun song, the artist gave him the feel of a rock god.

Cheers

I have this, and I really like it. (In fact, I had posted here about it back when I first made the discovery)

I had the exact same thought about the Poseidon track, which I think may be my favorite of all of them (though I think they're all good.)

I had to go check that out - I didn't know anybody had covered Steppenwolf.

It's good enough,I guess, but colour me old - I like my Steppenwolf better.

...songs that remind you of deities from the Greek pantheon.

My first contribution is rather odd, in that it is a setting of Catholic liturgy.  From Bach's Magnificat, a portion of the Solemn Vespers of the Confessor.  When my chorus sang it, I was enthralled by the 4th movement "Omnes Generationes."  It is usually joined with the preceding 3rd movement because they are one sentance and overlap last and first notes.  Combined, I've begun to link them with Poseidon.

The first part I hear a calm seashore, with the oboe gull-like.  The second part reveals the pounding of the waves. (If you find a version that doesn't turn it into a race.)
From youtube.

My second song is for Dionysos.  La Vie Boheme from RENT.

My third connection is for Aphrodite.  Kim, by Eminem.  The heartache in that song makes it hard for me to listen to.  It shows the side of Her that can cause pain.

The purpose of Life is to experience. In order to experience new things, one has to change and grow. Therefore, to grow is integral to fulfilling the purpose of Life.
Conversly: Monotony is an experience.  Therefore, stagnation can be integral to fulfilling the purpose of Life.

It comes a moment when a girl decides to improve her ipod with a mystical playlist... I read similiar threads on tC, but I still wnred f you have additional suggestions for songs that remind you of deities from the Greek pantheon. Here I go with mines:

Hekate:

Lady Geneva- Inkubus Sukkubus
The Forgotten Goddess- Echoes Of Eternity
Dead In The Water-Hawthorne Heights
I'll Stand b You- Annie Lennox
Bad vibes, Good vibes -Liv Kristine


Dionysos:

Burn it to the ground- Nickelback
Bacchante- Theatre Of Tragedy

Aphrodite:
Venus -theatre of tragedy
Ava Adore-Smashing Pumpkins
Erotic Angel- Inkubus Sukkubus

Gaia
Sorella Terra -Laura Pausini


For some reason I always think of Aphrodite when I hear the song "Come On Get Higher" by Matt Nathanson.   Cheesy

I've got The Forgotten People by Thievery Corporation on my Dionysos playlist now. I originally heard it during the second season for True Blood during a scene involving Maryann (everyone's favourite HBO maenad! Cheesy), so I think it's doubly fitting. It's purely an instrumental, though.

I also have Hardest of Hearts by Florence + the Machine on His playlist as well. The lyrics to the song are just... and Florence Welch's voice is just... ugh love it. You can find the lyrics here. It reminds me of a poem by Dver that calls Him a "softly, brutal god".

Oh, you are right - Hardest of Hearts is truly a great song for him.

Also, you should listen 'Love Out Of Lust' by Lykke Li, especially if you love FATM - Lykke Li voice is similiarly soft and crystal clear but the lyrics... totally Dionysian...
