Top 10 Most Meaningful Songs


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Leave Out All the Rest - Linkin Park

I love this song. It's just so amazing. I just forget about the world, and enter my own. Not that you might care, but for me this is one meaningful song, of which makes you just want to cry, well for me. It just digs so deep, and makes me remember everything in my past.

I'd like to say even 'hands held high' & 'in the end ' deserved to be in the top ten... 'waiting for the end' is also quite meaning full...

Its best not to describe how you feel about this particular song ;however music is out of the world and legendary lyrics makes us wanna feel it that we all have faced sometimes in our lives

So deep and full of metaphor and all sorts of interpretations.

84 Youth of the Nation - P.O.D.

This song is about the Columbine shooting and some other tragedies that have happened. This song is very emotional if you have experienced anything like it. I truly love this song and it carries so much meaning in the lyrics. You honestly don't have to know the song just at least read the lyrics and they mean everything

This song brings back old memories to me and is a joy to listen to.

85 Redemption Song - Bob Marley

This song is great because it talks about the struggle that some people went through

86 Changes - 2Pac

You don't have to have the same background as Tupac to appreciate the narrative he creates. His lyrics dropkick you to the scene of his frustration. Looking at both the internal and external causes of the issues he wars against, makes this song approachable regardless of your political affiliation. There's something in this song for everyone.

43 ONLY! Tupac is the father of Rap and this song conveys such a STRONG message. You don't have to like rap to like this song, it's absolutely AMAZING. KILLUMINATI

This is an incredible song describing the faults in the world and changes we need in order to correct these faults. I hope people listen to this song and begin to understand where he's coming from. Its also just a really nice song to listen to in general.

Such a meaningful song. Describes the pain that he went through, and how he dealt with it and became arguably the greatest rapper of all time.

88 It Can Wait - Illy
89 Crawling - Linkin Park
90 Mirrors - Justin Timberlake

This is my absolute favorite song by Justin Timberlake it makes me cry by listening to it.

91 Desolation Row - Bob Dylan

"To her death is quite romantic,
She wears an iron west,
Her profession is her religion,
Her sin is her lifelessness. "

I dig MJ, but he is by far not as good poet and writer as Mr. Zimmerman.
