Psalms and Modern Songs?

Hey r/Reformed, hoping to draw on your (much more extensive than mine) knowledge of songs here.

I'm putting together a poetry unit to teach to grade 8 students in a Christian school. One activity they really like is comparing modern pop songs to classic poetry to see how people express emotions in very similar ways. I'd like to do this with the Psalms – connect a modern, popular song with one of the Psalms to demonstrate how similar emotions and situations are expressed, but then contrasting the hope found in the Psalms with the emptiness of modern pop music.

If you can think of any songs and Psalms that connect in this way it would be a huge help to me and I'd really appreciate your help!
