Top 10 Most Meaningful Songs


The Contenders: Page 7

121 Hey Jude - The Beatles Hey Jude - The Beatles V 1 Comment
122 Ordinary World - Duran Duran Ordinary World - Duran Duran
123 Hero of War - Rise Against 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

124 Zombie - The Cranberries 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

125 Goner - Twenty Øne Pilots 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 miss them so much there music is so amazing

131 Paranoid Android - Radiohead 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.

132 Tangled Up In Blue - Bob Dylan Tangled Up In Blue - Bob Dylan
133 Patterns - Simon & Garfunkel Patterns - Simon & Garfunkel

All the words are so perfectly true, and yet the the song is still relitively unknown. How ever hard ou try yo be you, life and time still beats you.

134 Secrets - Onerepublic Secrets - Onerepublic

Any song by this band could make the list, really, but this one is just such a meaningful song about telling all your secrets and it's my favorite song ever made!

Absolutely amazing! One Republic put emotions into words in the best of ways

Fantastic band meaningful song one of my favorites

135 Under Pressure - Queen Under Pressure - Queen

The best duet of two LEGENDS with lots of 'lalala' and 'bopboop' and EPICNESS.

136 The Catalyst - Linkin Park The Catalyst - Linkin Park

The lyrics are about a guy who's about to die and him praying there is a god. Pretty deep.

137 Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine

This song is just awesome! It has everything in one pack. lyrics, vocals & music are just great

138 Will You Be There - Michael Jackson Will You Be There - Michael Jackson

I absolutely love Michael Jackson his way he makes his songs, the rhythm, beat us just awesome in a way I haven't I heard before.

139 Something in the Way - Nirvana Something in the Way - Nirvana V 3 Comments
140 A Little Bit Longer - Nick Jonas

This song I'd about how Nick founf out that he had Diabetes and how he went through that, but the lyrics can stand in for many hardships that people may be going through their life and that speaks to me!
