Top Ten Most Bipolar SongsA lot of songs use metaphors and my list is of some of the best songs that can be taken as a song about Bipolar or songs that change in mood and lyrics from happy to sad like people who suffer from the disorder.
The Top Ten
This song is the poster child for BIPOLAR in music. Rollins goes back and forth from being nice and evil ultimately lying through his teeth but not really knowing why. At the end his mood changes and he says over and over that he will never lie to this person again only to say he was lying the whole time. This is BIPOLAR at its greatest.
The title explains it all. Lithium is one of the drugs prescribed to BIPOLAR patients. Plus it is well documented all the struggles Cobain went through and some of those struggles are related to bipolar disorder.
This song is the perfect bipolar song because the singer just goes back and forth from I hate you but I still love you. With bipolar, one minute you are happy and can change in a matter of seconds to very disgruntled.
This is one of my most played songs on my spotify playlist. I absolutely love it, and I think it is very relatable
This song describes how I feel about my bipolar 1 as well as how it makes me feel. Particularly my mania.
In this song the person is going insane but is happy about it. Insanity can sometimes be confused with bipolar disorder especially if untreated.
At the beginning of the song she says she has bipolar disorder and the rest of the song she is saying she don't care if everyone knows her secrets.
Everyone knows the love/hate relationship between Eminem and Kim, but Eminem's feelings for her are always up and down like bipolar. In this song he kills her but still wants her.
The singer is struggling to stay sober and wishes he could quit but can't and the addiction is screwing up his life. Substance abuse can be linked to bipolar disorder.
This is a great Bipolar Disorder song and one of my favorites with Black Clouds being a metaphor for mental illness. Here's a sample of the lyrics-
“My emotions are storming
And tears fall just like rain
Pain strikes like lightning
Despair is becoming my friend”
The person in the song is in a relationship with a girl who has a lot of highs and lows and she is experiencing another Bad Day and leaves a note explaining the situation. Bipolar patients have lots of highs and lows.
This is a very emotional song from Cash which is a cover of nine inch nails. Cash's version is very raw and explains a person who has went through life hurting themselves and others not because he wants to, but because he suffers from something he's not sure about.
I think a lot of people (other than bipolar sufferers) can relate to this song.
I've always loved this song because I relate to it so much
A song about the process of entering into maniac state.
The song seems like that of a manic episode and it hits you with the use of “sometimes I wish that I was dead”.
"I'm high, then I'm low, low
Stop, then I go, go
Bipolar, oh, oh
Yes, then I'm no, no
My time will come, I promise that
Pull the trigger back, back"
I am two people
One you know but don't like
The other one you don't know, but you don't want to
I have two faces
One of which you know
The other one for your sake I never will show
It's just because I love you
I cannot bear to be around you
And if only one or the other
of us would
Pretty Self explanatory really, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde quite honestly.
