What are some good songs that use imagery of Adam and Eve/the fall of Eden in their lyrics?

I belong to a small music-trading group; every other month, members can submit 15 minutes of music, give or take a few minutes, for everyone else to listen to and comment on.
For the upcoming month's trade, I want to put together a set of songs that reference or play with the story of Adam and Eve in the garden. The impetus for this set is my current obsession with Nina Simone's Forbidden Fruit
; I also want to include Dan Bern's Eva
which isn't a direct retelling but does use some of the fall of man/tempting Eve imagery.
Forbidden Fruit and Eva together are about seven minutes. I figure I can squeeze in one to three additional songs, depending on times. Got any good takers?
