Top 10 Most Meaningful Songs


The Contenders: Page 7

121 In My Life - The Beatles

Beautiful song, nice meaning.

This song is all about life in general.
How things change
How things stay the same
How we can't stop some of these
So we might as well enjoy it and love others

If you haven't heard this song, go look it up now. It's beautiful

122 Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

Amazing meaning, even more amazing song. Speaks for itself.

123 Zombie - The Cranberries

Simply amazing. It's all about war and its effects and how it has affected humans, how it breaks children. The world, in short. One of the songs with meaningful lyrics and good instrumental.

Really sad song about the war in Ireland

124 I'll Always Remember You - Miley Cyrus

This song is simply amazing, every time I hear it, I cry

125 Hey Jude - The Beatles

Don't make it bad, take a sad song and make it better. It is just so simple, yet so optimstic. Great life lessons. You have to face your problems in life, learn to live without fear and sorrow


126 Shelter from the Storm - Bob Dylan

As with all Dylan cuts you can interpret this one however you please. I feel that throughout life you can reflect on each verse as a season of your live and attach it to a very sentimental memory.

Such a touching song, I think it means a lot to me at least. It shows that people should always be kind to others. In times of need you should always reach out.

127 Ordinary World - Duran Duran

Great, great song!

128 In the End - Linkin Park

For the one that try so hard in something, you will always get what you wanted. What comes around will come around

One of my childhood songs. I know every word of the song, and its great.

My favorite song. Reminds me of my life and how I have to move on.

Seriously this is most meaningful song

129 Dear Mr. President - Pink

Wow. Seems nice and slow already. Nice song.

Love pink and this song is one of my favorites

130 Hero of War - Rise Against

First song I ever heard of the group. At the time, I wanted to discover new music so I listened to like 5 bands before Rise Against, and I didn't really like none of them. But when I listened to this song, I instantly fell in love with the group. It is as well written as it is well sung.

This song has such a beautiful and strong but sad message. It breaks my heart. Hearing how strong and how into the song the lead singer gets just tears me apart. He connects with the song on a level you can't even imagine.

Are you kidding me?! Justin Bieber comes before this?!?!

One of their best songs. Love this song

132 Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
133 Paranoid Android - Radiohead

Where the hell is all the radiohead? They are known for the most meaningful and symbolistic lyrics ever made. Fake Plastic Trees, Creep, Karma Police, this song, the list goes on forever. This is insulting people. Get it together.

This song should be in the top ten. And all other songs of Radiohead should be in the top fifty. They have an immense talent and I have to admit that yes it is insulting that there is not a single of their songs in the top twenty.

134 Octavarium - Dream Theater
135 Cry Baby - Melanie Martinez

Wow this deserves more love honestly! I love Melanie, I relate to her so much. I feel as if music today is usually just songs about love and stuff like that, but Melanie is changing the music world as we know it with her unique style, and her actually beautifully sung and meaningful songs. Crybaby forever

This has a very important meaning. The talks about how this girl she wants more and so when she doesn't get more she gets sad but then she learned a big lesson and she starts to become this little girl who understands everything is now more intelligent because she is the best girl ever.

136 The Light Behind Your Eyes - My Chemical Romance

I miss them so much there music is so amazing

I love how nobody has commented and this was(still is) literally the best band ever!

137 F**kin' Perfect - Pink

This song is about that person who is always there for you and believes in you even when you feel like quitting or giving up.

Its about being you and your amazing

138 While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles

This song is definitely one I would consider very meaningful as a message to humanity from a fully consciousness perspective.

George reminds us that our love is sleeping and in the shadows of our ultimate being,and that the universe is awaiting for it again.

Through his memorizing lyrics he explains how us not living in our true potential has occurred and this is message to regain what has been lost in such a beautiful song; and that is consciousness. - jamesjoseph3599
