Top 10 Most Meaningful Songs


The Contenders: Page 12

221 Sailin' On - Bad Brains
222 Brave - Sara Bareilles

ITs a really good song and has a meaningful message to shy people

I feel this relates to the cowards that could do so much more if they wanted to

223 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden

Why is it so that songs where the people don't know to sing are rated at the top. Iron Maiden makes awesome music with the best lyrics out there. They sing about many things, but they talk about real things and not everyone you see *cough *cough (you know what I mean).

Ok this one and unforgiven should have been top 3 easily... Just from when is lil Wayne Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus more meaningful than iron maiden and Metallica? And where is holy wars symphony of destruction heaven and hell and for whom the bell tolls?

This is the best most meaningful song ever

How is this song on 207? Every verse in this song has deep meaning.

"When you know that your time is close at hand
Maybe then you'll begin to understand
Life down here is just a strange illusion"

"Can it be that there's some sort of error
Hard to stop the surmounting terror
Is it really the end, not some crazy dream? "

"Mark my words, believe my soul lives on
Don't worry now that I have gone
I've gone beyond to seek the truth". - zxm

224 In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida - Iron Butterfly
225 Nature's Way - Spirit
226 Pain - Three Days Grace

It's kind of sad how this is below a break-up song, because Adam wrote this in rehab after being addicted to OxyContin. It made him feel numb to everything that was going on around him. I also wanted to add: Why isn't Animal I Have Become on here?

I want to feel something, anything to make me part of this world.

227 Hero - Mariah Carey V 1 Comment
228 A Toute Le Monde - Megadeth
229 Mayonaise - The Smashing Pumpkins

It's touching on the sorrows of where the band came from and how long it took them to get there

230 Lullaby - Nickelback

I think that this song should be made up to the top ten because it is simply just reaching out to those who have thought about committing suicide or harming themselves. It has helped me a lot through my stages of depression. I love the lyrics...
"Well I know the feeling of finding yourself stuck out on the ledge, and there ain't no healing from cutting yourself with the jagged edge. I'm telling you that, its never that bad, take it from someone whos been where your at. Laid out on the floor and your not sure, you can take this anymore... So just give it one more try to a lullaby and turn this up on the radio, if you can hear me now, I'm reaching out to let you know that your not alone. and if you can't tell I'm scared as hell cause I can't get you on the telephone. So just close your eyes. Oh honey here comes a lullaby."

231 One Day Too Late - Skillet
232 Looking for Angels - Skillet
233 Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day
234 Take Me to Church - Hozier

It is religious and very meaningful.

"Why is take me to church not here? "

"Take me to church NEEDS to be in this, like that song is so deep, yet catchy"

"u notice how none of these songs are about accepting homosexuality and seeing it in their perspective.. Take me to church is such a great example, it's meaningful, and those 'amens' made me melt"

235 If I Ain't Got You - Alicia Keys

Although disguised as a love song, it talks about how everyone chases after fame, fortune, power, and how it doesn't mean anything without love.

Wow. This song is amazing. Lots of meaning.

236 To Believe - Jackie Evancho
237 Safe & Sound - Taylor Swift

This song has helped me through so much and sometimes listening to it is the only way I get to sleep at night.
Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No-one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be
Safe and Sound

238 Boston - Augustana
239 The Boxer - Simon and Garfunkel
240 My Immortal - Evanescence

Definatelly a meaningful song of Evanescence

What the heck, My Immortal is #469?

When I was going through a tragic time of my life after my break up, I felt so isolated, so alone. But after listening to this song, it felt like someone understood me. Ever since then, I was Amy Lee's #1 fan. I still cry every time I listen to this song... and it was released 7 years ago. This song is immortal. It will never die.

*Definitely* a top song of Evanescence
