From my experience, all the comrades from college days are doing pretty well in today's market economy. It seems to me that they have some hidden skills to survive in the markets well. One plausible explanation I have is, communism at that time was like fundamentalism. Fundamentalists somehow has the ability to filter out or manage high amount of distractions inherent to market. If this is true, market is promoting fundamentalism indirectly.
Chrisitan songs definitely lack a personal human story - they typically tell story of Jesus or glorify the god and related subjects or talk about humanity in general terms. May be they think ultimate human story is that of Jesus and rest of them are irrelevant.
