Songs With Secret Meanings


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Darkness Within - Machine Head

Many people will think this song is about depression or dying, but it is actually about having a deep love for music.

22Them Bones - Alice In Chains

I think its about the fact that why live if your going to die? The music video shows insects killing each other, but its not that obvious at first

23Kim - Eminem
24Lithium - Nirvana

Lithium is an anti-depressant drug and the verses of the song represent the stages a person goes through while on the drug. "I'm so happy... Cause today I found my friends, they're in my head. I'm so ugly, that's okay cause so are you." And then the end of the song becomes angry, uncontrollable, and blazing with confusion and rage. "I like it I'm not gonna crack. I miss you I'm not gonna crack. I love you I'm not gonna crack! I'd KILL you I'm not gonna crack! "

25I Am the Walrus - The Beatles

This is the song that INVENTED secret meanings!

26Norwegian Wood - The Beatles

John Lennon's confession to having an affair.

Blasts the Maharishi for being really just a dirty old man.

28Take Me to Church - Hozier
29Murder Game - Kevin Gates
30Beauty School - Deftones
31Semi-Charmed Life - Third Eye Blind
32Mamma Mia - ABBA

I don't know what it is about, but did a video about happy sounding songs with secret lyrics and one of the honorable mentions was Mamma Mia.

33Leaving On a Jet Plane - John Denver

Seemingly a love song about young lovers, the singer of which has been a regretful fool. However, one unsung version laments in the last chorus, "Don't know if I'll be back again." The reason is that the jet plane is taking him to Vietnam and yes he doesn't come back.

34Hot Fun In the Summertime - Sly and the Family Stone

While on the outside it talks about a beautiful summer day, it has a more political meaning in reality

35Creep - Radiohead
