The Top Ten

1
Imagine - John Lennon
This is for sure the most meaningful song on the list. If you imagine the world that we live in like the world John Lennon is telling us to imagine it like, its perfect. The world that we live in is cruel, full of hate, racism, murder, and war. The world that John Lennon sings is tells us how we should want the world to be. In his song there is world peace, and everyone is living together as one people sharing the world. If you listen to the song and imagine the world how he says you would know that I'm right. R.I.P. John Lennon
It's realistic, overall something people need to realize. It covers violence issue and I don't understand while people judge, this will go into that also, it's more then just a songs it's a meaningful poem about realistic life things.
I cry when I listen to this. The world is filled with so much hate and anger. Even though we think it would be great to have a perfect world it wouldn't. We would never know what happy is and what sad is so we wouldn't truly be happy. I <3 John Lennon
[Newest]I got the name Lennon is because of the inspiring John Lennon.

2How to Save a Life - The Fray
I really love this song. I've suffered with depression for four years and nobody believes that I do so I can't get help. I've thought about committing suicide more times than I can count and this song, as well as music in general, made me want to live. I credit this song with saving my life.
This song has got me through some dark times over the years especially when I want to kill myself and when no one believed nor cared that I was suffering depression. I would put this song on repeat while I slept and in the morning I would feel happy. The lyrics are so powerful.
I absolutly love this song, the lyrics are just so meaningful, anyone can relate to them which ever side you might find your self in, you know exactly what this song is tring to through.
[Newest]Such an amazing song.. I love this song. Every time it comes on I just listen to the lyrics and enjoy every moment

3Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
I played this song on the guitar because it's a very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very good song.
Although I do agree with Imagine as being number 1 this should defiantly be second, this song is beautiful and full of meaning a master piece I would say.
This song needs to be higher on the list. There is so much meaning within the song that one can't interpret all of the thoughts within.
[Newest]It is catchy and meaningful

4Skyscraper - Demi Lovato
She has so much emotions thought all of her songs! She is so amazing. Try listening to her new song called warrior. That's song is so meaningful, it's amazing.
She is AMAZING! She shows so much thought and emotions by simply singing a song, and she pleases everyone with the meaning and true passion she shows. I just LOVE her! :)!
Absolutely incredible. Shes incredible.
[Newest]I like her voice and you can relate,

5Man In the Mirror - Michael Jackson
It just gives one of the greatest messages of life, "change yourself and the world will look a better place"
JB, what the heck!
Now, to be honest, I was never really a big fan of MJ, but this song is just so meaningful, his best!
Energy combined with love, honesty and good will. After the very beginning, striking with decency, he starts praying in remorse, shouting for justice and ends in intimacy. I love it!
[Newest]Great song, great message, its amazing. I love it

6Earth Song - Michael Jackson
We gotta stop killing things.. And thatz what the song is all about...

Level of awesomeness is at its apex!
The worst part is the fact that we DO know what we are doing, and have done, yet we don't stop.
This song explains how the world is falling apart as we know it, and it's all our fault. Worst part is that we are completely oblivious of what we are doing.
[Newest]It is too awesome LEGEND! WOW

7Hell Above - Pierce the Veil
Pierce the veil really put meaning into their lyrics and express their feelings through songs, I hate it when people put labels such as 'emo or goth or screamo' if they listened to what the music were about then they'd actually understand.

This band makes music that's relatable unlike other artists such a Justin beiber or Nikki minaj, no disrespect but what's so special about the words 'baby baby baby oh like baby baby baby oh' and Nikki's lyrics 'beez in the trap bee beez in the trap' like what do they even mean?

They've helped so many people through so much it's unbelievable and they don't follow society's idea of perfect or normal and that encourages people all over the world to speak up and not be afraid to be themselves and not be ashamed of who they are, in my eyes Pierce The Veil are true idols and heroes...
Pierce The Veil is a very inspiring band. They helped me through a lot in the past and they deserve to be voted. I will never stop listening to them. And for the people who judge rock/metal, it isn't "screamo" you don't even listen to the lyrics. Those lyrics speak out to people who are going through what the song is describing. Don't judge what you don't understand.
Not only is Pierce The Veil an amazing band, they're all really down to Earth. I met them at the World Tour, and they did great live. This song was the opener and it was amazing live. You could tell this song held a special place to Vic (The lead singer if some of you don't know) and that's honestly the best part about the band. It's wonderful knowing these words hold a meaning to them, and that we can all relate to them in one way or another. Never judge Pierce The Veil by their style, they're one of a kind.
[Newest]One of my favorite songs from them.. Lyrics are relatable and song is beautiful and amazing.

8Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day
Amazing song. Why isn't this in top 10? I'm disappointed with you guys.
Best. Song. Ever! My favorite song of all time!
Especially when you're watching the lead singer sing this song, you'll actually feel the lyrics get in to your veins
[Newest]This song is my life in lyrics

9Wings - Macklemore
This Song is more than beautiful and it shows off how cruel society became. Everybody cares about being popular and rich even though that's totally not important. Great lyrics.
This song is great Becuse what he's singing about is true I've been through things like that and I think it should be a bit higher on the list
I've loved this song for so long and every time I listen to the lyrics of the song it shows me so many point of this century and memories of me trying to fit in and now that I actually have good shoes I notice that they are not why I have friends
[Newest]He's not just talking about shoes duh

10Radioactive - Imagine Dragons
The lyrics to this song have so much depth, just by reading them anyone can see the message that is ment to get across. Its intense!
From a musical perspective, this band (Imagine Dragons) does a remarkable job of: incorporating the bass, changing dynamic (how loud a section is played) and emphasizing parts of this song. It gets your heart racing, and urges you to turn it up loud. This is exactly what a revolution should do. Kudos
My all time favourite song. Such a haunting and deep melody with dark but catchy lyrics. The lyrics make me feel like I can take over the universe. Excellent!
[Newest]Mega! Best beat ever!

The Contenders

11We Are the World - Michael Jackson
One of the most meaningful song I've ever listening to
I listen to all types of music and can't remember one song that brought more people together to sing as one voice for one reason the betterment of every man woman & child on earth
Everyone came together for a meaningful reasoning at that moment nothing mattered about what that celebrity did or what they represents its just that feeling of love that mattered
[Newest]Not surprising but out of the ten most inspiring songs..3 belong to Michael Jackson! Love him!

12Family Portrait - Pink
This is a very emotional song about families and arguments between parents
I'm sure it will relate to a lot of people
Why did I watch this immediately in YouTube... I cried for the first time in months :(
An amazing song with so much meaning and emotion put into it

13Second and Sebring - of Mice& Men
Of Mice and Men is so inspiring! Lyrically I can relate to so many songs.
"I hope you smile when you look down on me" If that's not meaningful then I don't know what is.
Very amazingly touching song and a band that I personally listen to every day. The songs about the death of his mother and is honestly something you'd never forget.
I've never actually listened to the song, that I know of, but it is a song that saves many many lives. So it must have meaning.

14Hero - Enrique Iglesias
Hero is one of my favorite song :"))
Yup I voted for this, totally a romantic way of pleasing your beloved one c':

15They Don't Care About Us - Michael Jackson
This song just shows that no matter what they say (the government) they care for no-one. Don't trust politicians, and don't trust easily.
Such an inspiring song. Just goes to show that the illuminati and the government shouldn't be trusted
This is an amazing song
[Newest]Tears and emotion. That's all I can say.

16Seize the Day - Avenged Sevenfold
Their songs are the best. I promise you that there are not like others, they're unique in their way. The first time I heard this song was a few years ago and I instantly fell in love with even though I don't like the genre. But as I listen to it more, I realised that bands like them write good lyrics. Some of them help people who are in suicidal.
Amazing song... Should be a lot higher...

17If Everyone Cared - Nickelback
Nickelback has some really inspiring songs, and this is definitely one of them. I think its a really relatable song. I hope that one day we really can see the day that nobody dies. Amazing song, truly. <3 Thank you for this Nickelback x
The lyrics to this song are just... I can't describe. This song gives me the chill. "If everyone cared and nobody cried, if everyone loved and nobody lied, if everyone shared and swallowed their pride. Then we'd see the day when nobody died. "
This song is amazing. The lyrics not only are deep, but have so much depth and emotion. It talks about how screwed up the world, if everyone cared, we really would see a peaceful land. I love this song.
[Newest]I find things song is really so inspiring. It shows me a way I would like to live.

18Kristy, Are You Doing Okay? - The Offspring
Wow... the story behind this song... extremely deep song, this should be higher up the list.

19Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen
Chillingly beautiful song with a hidden meaning if you listen carefully.
Really takes you to another world

20Fiction - Avenged Sevenfold
