229 Miles Away - Madonna Miles Away - Madonna
230 Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman? - Bryan Adams Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman? - Bryan Adams
231 Beautiful - Eminem Beautiful - Eminem

You don't need brains to get this song. Just have to listen. The lyrics give you goosebumps and no other lyricist can ever walk much as he can. No one can take his shoes. This is him... This is the truth and this is what you should look out for. This needs to be at the top. - quolquier

232 Fix You - Coldplay Fix You - Coldplay V 1 Comment
233 Re-Education (Through Labor) - Rise Against Re-Education (Through Labor) - Rise Against

"To the sound of a heartbeat pounding away
To the rhythm of the awful rusted machines
We toss and turn but don't sleep
Each breath we take makes us thieves
Like causes without rebels
Just talk but promise nothing else

We crawl on our knees for you
Under a sky no longer blue
We sweat all day long for you
But we sow seeds to see us through
'Cause sometimes dreams just don't come true
We wait to reap what we are due"

Rise Against should definitely be on this list, they have plenty of songs with strong, meaningful lyrics.

What the hell...Rise against should be in the top 20 at least.

234 The Bad Touch - Bloodhound Gang The Bad Touch - Bloodhound Gang

You and me, baby, ain't nothing but mammals, so let's do it like they do it on Discovery Channel.
Certainly of a different quality than the other songs on this list, but still sonewhat clever and allusion-laden.

This is one of my favorite Pink Floyd songs and it has really great lyrics! - TheThomasThomas

I never knew things ended up so badly for Pink...
I mean when she sang So What she seemed so carefree and happy... But then I listened to this album and
... Her dad died in a war then she had marriage issues then something about worms... RIP Pink
