106Right Where It Belongs - Nine Inch Nails

Sad how underrated this is. A simple assessment of the lyrics brought me to question my entire outlook on life, which was and is one of the most painful experiences I've been put through. The song is essentially about how, as introverts we hide our true features from the world and indeed, from ourselves. Trent encourages you to look at your reflection and challenge your beliefs and outlooks, while calling them an illusion.

No matter how painful this is you have to face the animal in the cage that you built, and question whether you are locking away an important part of yourself.

Though the tune is simple and melancholy the lyrics have a depth and genius I think is unrivalled by any other song. The fact that this song is behind several Justin Beiber songs shows the intellectual bancruptcy within the audience of modern music. I advise anyone who reads this to listen to the song and read the lyrics, leave your comfort zone and question your tastes as the song suggests.

107Same Love - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

I really think this song is so good. when I clicked on this link, I honestly expected to see this song as one of the first listings to see. truly baffled its not ranked higher, because when I think of "songs with meaning" this is honestly one of the first songs to come to mind.

Changes a persons views, and to think a rapper put his career on the line to send this message out, so touching.

Such a touching, meaningful song

Yes! When I saw Macklemore's song Wings in the top 5, I was thinking that maybe this song was going to be here, too. It's so beautiful!

110Bandz a Make Her Dance - Juicy J
111Another Brick In the Wall Pt.2 - Pink Floyd

What is wrong with everyone? This cult song is one of the best and meaningful songs in the rock history. How did Pierce the veil even get here? What is wrong with you people?.

Such an Amazing Song, everyone should no this song.

112Broken Home - 5 Seconds of Summer

First of all, this band has released a new album recently and it's not like any other bands. They're album is about what people now a days usually go through. This is one of the song off of their new album " Sounds Good Feels Good." A part of the song says,
"Hey mum, hey dad
When did this end?
Where did you lose your happiness?
I'm here alone inside of this broken home
Who's right, who's wrong
Who really cares?
The fault, the blame, the pain's still there
I'm here alone inside of this broken home, this broken home"

First of all 5sos is my favorite band... I love how they can make song like they are laughing their asses off 24/7 but how they can also show that the world isn't all smiley and that there are real problems that a lot people have... this is one of my favorite because probably a lot of their fans are around a age where most family problems come across... so yeah I'm really proud of them and the whole album to be honest

It's just such a deep and meaningful song. So many people can relate to this song and it will make them feel better. I think it's a song that says the words and thoughts that many people is afraid to say

I love this song, because its such a meaningful and deep song and I think it's so many people that can relate to this song. I love this band so much! They are so amazing, and this song is too

113Down to Earth - Justin Bieber

Justin shouldn't be on this list.

"and you can see the look on my face, it just tears me apart."
I don't know about you but this line gets me every time.

114The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel

I can listen to this song while playing dota 2. Very meaningful song. I just want it to have some attention it deserves.

This song resonates with people even today, why it is so low on the list is beyond me.

If this is this far down the list that means that noonehas really stopped to disasemble the lyrics

" Hello darkness, my old friend..."

115Shelter from the Storm - Bob Dylan

As with all Dylan cuts you can interpret this one however you please. I feel that throughout life you can reflect on each verse as a season of your live and attach it to a very sentimental memory.

Such a touching song, I think it means a lot to me at least. It shows that people should always be kind to others. In times of need you should always reach out.

116In My Life - The BeatlesV1 Comment
117I'll Always Remember You - Miley Cyrus

This song is simply amazing, every time I hear it, I cry

118Dear Mr. President - Pink

Wow. Seems nice and slow already. Nice song.

Love pink and this song is one of my favorites

119Ordinary World - Duran Duran
120Hero of War - Rise Against

First song I ever heard of the group. At the time, I wanted to discover new music so I listened to like 5 bands before Rise Against, and I didn't really like none of them. But when I listened to this song, I instantly fell in love with the group. It is as well written as it is well sung.

This song has such a beautiful and strong but sad message. It breaks my heart. Hearing how strong and how into the song the lead singer gets just tears me apart. He connects with the song on a level you can't even imagine.

Are you kidding me?! Justin Bieber comes before this?!?!

One of their best songs. Love this song
