Vatican City's St. Peter's Square was packed with tens of thousands of pilgrims and well-wishers as they attended Pope Benedict's final address on Feb. 27.

After Pope Benedict XVI officially said goodbye on Thursday, 115 cardinals have gathered in Vatican City and are getting ready to pick the next pope. While you wait — and it could be a while — the folks at Spotify put together this papal-appropriate playlist for your iPod, just in case you're looking for something to blast during your conclave parties.

While the songs on this list are beautiful, some of us were disappointed not to see some more pop music (we thought Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" or Elvis Costello's "The Angels Want to Wear My Red Shoes" might work).

Check out the playlist (scroll over it to get the full list), and tell us what you'd include on your conclave mix!
