The Contenders: Page 5XW

81The Scientist - Coldplay

This song has gotten me through so much

This song is great because it talks about the struggle that some people went through

Okay really number 71? This song is amazing.

85Changes - Tupac

You don't have to have the same background as Tupac to appreciate the narrative he creates. His lyrics dropkick you to the scene of his frustration. Looking at both the internal and external causes of the issues he wars against, makes this song approachable regardless of your political affiliation. There's something in this song for everyone.

43 ONLY! Tupac is the father of Rap and this song conveys such a STRONG message. You don't have to like rap to like this song, it's absolutely AMAZING. KILLUMINATI

This is an incredible song describing the faults in the world and changes we need in order to correct these faults. I hope people listen to this song and begin to understand where he's coming from. Its also just a really nice song to listen to in general.

I'm surprised such a meaningful song is so low.

86Youth of the Nation - P.O.D.

This song is about the Columbine shooting and some other tragedies that have happened. This song is very emotional if you have experienced anything like it. I truly love this song and it carries so much meaning in the lyrics. You honestly don't have to know the song just at least read the lyrics and they mean everything

This song brings back old memories to me and is a joy to listen to.

87Desolation Row - Bob Dylan

"To her death is quite romantic,
She wears an iron west,
Her profession is her religion,
Her sin is her lifelessness. "

I dig MJ, but he is by far not as good poet and writer as Mr. Zimmerman.
