The Top TenXW

1Imagine - 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

Overrated yet meaningful.

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 felt something deep about this song just by listening to it. Then I looked up the lyric meanings and boy was I moved. The writing is just heart wrenching and makes you question your existence as a friend or relative. Although I've never had any substance-abused friends, I feel ashamed for having looked down on and isolating people who I've met and have been addicts. Also, this song doesn't just apply to drug addiction, it can be for almost anything that someone can't help doing and others don't approve of. Ah! Made my day. Plays on repeat.

This song has got me through some dark times

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.

This absolutely fabulous song at least should be second on this list not fourth

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.

Love the meaning behind this song. This song was in my motivational music playlist and I loved when it came on before soccer games.

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.

Good song aye

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"

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!

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!

This song creates a realization of our reality today. We can't keep complaining, or painfully watching people suffer. If others are just going to let this happen, then you got to look in the mirror and make the change yourself. And, we always talk about our society and all the bad things that happen that have no reasoning. Well that reasoning somebody didn't prevent that from happening... And that someone could be right in the mirror. There is a quote that perfectly represents this song, "Our world suffers a lot, not because of the bad people and, the violence. But, because of the good people that are silent." That's why I vote this song to be one of the most meaningful songs created by the one and only Michael Jackson that no one will ever forget and may his legacy be passed down to future generations to come.

6Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day

Yes please. This song is so true. If you just don't know what to do and you're walking down the path of destiny with no one to guide you, no one beside you and you're lost, then this song is for you. When you lose hope and everything seems to be going wrong, listen to this song and you'll relate. You'll know you're not alone, that there are people who understand out there. Who knows, maybe someday you'll find someone who understand you and accept you for who you are. That is what this song stands for, what it preaches. And it doesn't hurt that the beat and tune of this song are addicting. I love this song so much. It deserves a much higher ranking.

Amazing song. Why isn't this in top 10? I'm disappointed with you guys.

Best. Song. Ever! My favorite song of all time!

You don't listen to this song. You feel it.

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.

I enjoy listening to this band

8Angel - Jackie Evancho

Pretty heavy stuff for the young lady but she melts your heart when she sings it. - BobG

This song comes into my head regularly,
Jackie's version is outstanding!

Great song sung by the most beautiful voice in the world. Jackie is now only 15 what great thing will she do in the next 5 to 10 years? Wait and see.

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 Because 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

The very first time I listened to this song, I was also watching the video. I cried. This song is so emotional and it shows just how screwed up society has become. I think this song should've been more up on the list.

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

This song is really good! When I first listened to it I was amazed! I love this song so much! Really good!

10Radioactive - Imagine Dragons

Radioactive is a great song. Very relatable. Imagine Dragons is an underrated band. They incorporate so much meaning into their songs. In this song, the meaning is loud and clear. And the way they've presented it and the dark yet somewhat upbeat rhythm compliments the song well. One of the songs I like best by them is Monster. Now that should be in the Top 10 of this list. Like the line 'If I told you what I was, would you turn your back on me? ' and the paragraph

'Can I clear my conscience, if I'm different from the rest/Do I have to run and hide? /I never said that I want this/ This burden came to me/ And it's made its home inside.

And their beats and rhythm and overall vibe is just so great. I like how much meaning is put into the lyrics, that's what I like best about this band.

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

Very meaningful, I can definitely relate this song to my life

The Newcomers

?My Love, My Life - Abba
?Hotel California - Eagles

This is just such a great song with a bigger concept then most people actually hear but people willing to understand the song will here it much differently... Most will hear the chorus "Hotel California" but they others hear first second and third verse where this guy is consumed in fame and as much as he wants to leave he can't so he's suck in "Hitel California"

The Contenders

11Family 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 :(

As I said before I love this song. I am so thankful for my mom and her wife

I think this song is great and very meaningful

12We 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

How is this not at least Number 2? Other than Imagine and other songs by John Lennon, this is the greatest song ever in terms of message and power.

15Second and Sebring - of Mice& Men

This song is so relatable due to my grandma dying and my first tattoo will the '&' with the lyrics 'this is not what it is only baby scars, I need your love like a boy needs his mothers side' on my leg over my scars. My grandma was like my mother.

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.

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.

One of the best songs of a great band, this song help me through a lot like many others from this same band.

17Seize 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... - sam117

Song that you want to play on your funeral.

Meant to say amazing

18Earth Song - Michael Jackson

We gotta stop killing things.. And thatz what the song is all about...

Level of awesomeness is at its apex!

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.

The worst part is the fact that we DO know what we are doing, and have done, yet we don't stop.

We have to start protecting our Earth. We need nature. Nature brings us fresh air, nature gives us water to drink. Nature helps us thrive. But if we destroy it... What will happen to the Earth?
