Top 10 Most Meaningful Songs


The Contenders: Page 7XW

121In the End - Linkin Park

For the one that try so hard in something, you will always get what you wanted. What comes around will come around

One of my childhood songs. I know every word of the song, and its great.

My favorite song. Reminds me of my life and how I have to move on.

122Zombie - The Cranberries

Simply amazing. It's all about war and its effects and how it has affected humans, how it breaks children. The world, in short. One of the songs with meaningful lyrics and good instrumental.

Really sad song about the war in Ireland

123Goner - Twenty Øne Pilots

A lot of emotion has gone into this song, I dearly wish it was higher on the list, way higher than Icarly or Rudolph the red nosed reindeer. Every time I listen to this song, the lyrics and Tyler Joseph's gets me

This song has a lot of meaning to me and plenty others. It gives purpose to many people and without it I don't know where I and a few others would be today.

125Another Day in Paradise - Phil Collins

Deep, meaningful song. Don't just listen but let it change your next interaction with someone that needs your help!

126Waterloo Sunset - The Kinks
127Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
128Figure 09 - Linkin Park
129Paranoid Android - Radiohead

Where the hell is all the radiohead? They are known for the most meaningful and symbolistic lyrics ever made. Fake Plastic Trees, Creep, Karma Police, this song, the list goes on forever. This is insulting people. Get it together.

130Tangled Up In Blue - Bob Dylan
131Patterns - Simon & Garfunkel

All the words are so perfectly true, and yet the the song is still relitively unknown. How ever hard ou try yo be you, life and time still beats you.

132The Light Behind Your Eyes - My Chemical Romance

I miss them so much there music is so amazing

I love how nobody has commented and this was(still is) literally the best band ever!

133Secrets - OneRepublic

Any song by this band could make the list, really, but this one is just such a meaningful song about telling all your secrets and it's my favorite song ever made!

Absolutely amazing! One Republic put emotions into words in the best of ways

134The Catalyst - Linkin Park

The lyrics are about a guy who's about to die and him praying there is a god. Pretty deep.

135Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine

This song is just awesome! It has everything in one pack. lyrics, vocals & music are just great

136Will You Be There - Michael Jackson

I absolutely love Michael Jackson his way he makes his songs, the rhythm, beat us just awesome in a way I haven't I heard before.

137Something In the Way - NirvanaV3 Comments
138A Little Bit Longer - Nick Jonas

This song I'd about how Nick founf out that he had Diabetes and how he went through that, but the lyrics can stand in for many hardships that people may be going through their life and that speaks to me!

139The World Is Ugly - My Chemical Romance

It was a difficult decision to choose between this and The Light Behind Your Eyes. They both make me cry and think as there is so much truth in the words. My favourite lines are:
"Stop your crying, helpless feeling,
Dry your eyes and start believing."

140We've Had Enough - Michael Jackson
