102 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin V 1 Comment
103 Run the World - Beyonce V 1 Comment
104 Bandz a Make Her Dance - Juicy J
105 Right Where It Belongs - Nine Inch Nails

Sad how underrated this is. A simple assessment of the lyrics brought me to question my entire outlook on life, which was and is one of the most painful experiences I've been put through. The song is essentially about how, as introverts we hide our true features from the world and indeed, from ourselves. Trent encourages you to look at your reflection and challenge your beliefs and outlooks, while calling them an illusion.

No matter how painful this is you have to face the animal in the cage that you built, and question whether you are locking away an important part of yourself.

Though the tune is simple and melancholy the lyrics have a depth and genius I think is unrivalled by any other song. The fact that this song is behind several Justin Beiber songs shows the intellectual bancruptcy within the audience of modern music. I advise anyone who reads this to listen to the song and read the lyrics, leave your comfort zone and question your tastes as the song suggests.

106 Whistle - Flo Rida
107 Turn On the Lights - Future
108 Drops of Jupiter - Train

This song is just altogether beautiful. I could listen to it all day.

109 The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel

I can listen to this song while playing dota 2. Very meaningful song. I just want it to have some attention it deserves.

This song resonates with people even today, why it is so low on the list is beyond me.

Amazing song

If this is this far down the list that means that noonehas really stopped to disasemble the lyrics

" Hello darkness, my old friend..."

110 Who You Are - Jessie J

Great song. Has really helped me with feelings and emotions and I listen to it every time I'm feeling down.

111 That Should Be Me - Justin Bieber

It's in no way meaningful, nor is it a good song. Sorry to the Bieber fans..

I love this song

Such a good song. Ok goodbye

112 Same Love - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

I really think this song is so good. when I clicked on this link, I honestly expected to see this song as one of the first listings to see. truly baffled its not ranked higher, because when I think of "songs with meaning" this is honestly one of the first songs to come to mind.

Changes a persons views, and to think a rapper put his career on the line to send this message out, so touching.

Such a touching, meaningful song

Yes! When I saw Macklemore's song Wings in the top 5, I was thinking that maybe this song was going to be here, too. It's so beautiful!

113 Goner - Twenty Øne Pilots

A lot of emotion has gone into this song, I dearly wish it was higher on the list, way higher than Icarly or Rudolph the red nosed reindeer. Every time I listen to this song, the lyrics and Tyler Joseph's gets me

This song has a lot of meaning to me and plenty others. It gives purpose to many people and without it I don't know where I and a few others would be today.


I understand why this song is so low on the list. After all, no one hears any TØP songs other than Ride and Stressed Out, but Goner is one of the few songs that almost makes me cry.

114 Another Brick In the Wall Pt.2 - Pink Floyd

What is wrong with everyone? This cult song is one of the best and meaningful songs in the rock history. How did Pierce the veil even get here? What is wrong with you people?.

Such an Amazing Song, everyone should no this song.

115 Little Me - Little Mix

Beautiful meaning that relates to all girls of all ages.

About being more confident in yourself.

"I'd tell her to speak up
tell her to shout out
and know that right here right now
you can be beautiful, wonderful
anything that you wanna be
Little me - animallover222

116 Down to Earth - Justin Bieber

Justin shouldn't be on this list.

People who have a similar story, this song/ the lyrics specifically will mean something to them.

"and you can see the look on my face, it just tears me apart."
I don't know about you but this line gets me every time.

It made me cry and I never cry - ariluvsjb

117 Another Day in Paradise - Phil Collins

Deep, meaningful song. Don't just listen but let it change your next interaction with someone that needs your help!

118 Broken Home - 5 Seconds of Summer

First of all, this band has released a new album recently and it's not like any other bands. They're album is about what people now a days usually go through. This is one of the song off of their new album " Sounds Good Feels Good." A part of the song says,
"Hey mum, hey dad
When did this end?
Where did you lose your happiness?
I'm here alone inside of this broken home
Who's right, who's wrong
Who really cares?
The fault, the blame, the pain's still there
I'm here alone inside of this broken home, this broken home"

First of all 5sos is my favorite band... I love how they can make song like they are laughing their asses off 24/7 but how they can also show that the world isn't all smiley and that there are real problems that a lot people have... this is one of my favorite because probably a lot of their fans are around a age where most family problems come across... so yeah I'm really proud of them and the whole album to be honest

It's just such a deep and meaningful song. So many people can relate to this song and it will make them feel better. I think it's a song that says the words and thoughts that many people is afraid to say

I love this song, because its such a meaningful and deep song and I think it's so many people that can relate to this song. I love this band so much! They are so amazing, and this song is too
