Top 10 Most Meaningful Songs


The Contenders: Page 9

161 Ever After - Marianas Trench

My favourite band ever. Josh has been through so much and whenever I see them live, I can just see the pain in his eyes and can hear it when he sings certain songs. Lover Dearest and Skin and Bones should be here too.

162 Exit Wounds - The Script

Need I say more? Just listen to the song and you'll know.

It is what they feel, and it is not a song just to make money

163 Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance

Beautiful song, can be interpreted in so many different ways, one of the best My Chemical Romance songs in my opinion, although it may be argued

164 Hotel California - Eagles

This is just such a great song with a bigger concept then most people actually hear but people willing to understand the song will here it much differently... Most will hear the chorus "Hotel California" but they others hear first second and third verse where this guy is consumed in fame and as much as he wants to leave he can't so he's suck in "Hitel California"

165 All My Love - Led Zeppelin
166 When All Is Said and Done - ABBA

This is a musical rhapsody by ABBA filled with various emotions such as grief oozing out of it. It would be almost impossible for one not to sense the various emotions in this song that signifies the break-up of Benny Anderson and Anni-Frid. This was one of Abba's last masterpiece before its official break-up on December 1981 and at the same time, my favourite ABBA song.

167 All Kinds of Kinds - Miranda Lambert

This song's lyrics speak, they tell us how everyone is different, and that to keep the world going, they need to be that way.

I love this song so much. Most people just pass over the country artists but this is worth listening to. Love you Miranda

168 Beautiful - Eminem

I cannot believe that this isn't in the list yet, this song is so damn meaningful and helped me through so much.

This is one of the deepest, most emotional songs I came across with. It helped me in so many ways, I can�"'t describe its full beauty.

This should be in top ten!

I honey women love daught honey yeah good one

169 What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

Beautiful heartfelt positive song. even in the bad the world can be beautiful! Or should I say wonderful!

Sad that the Jackie evancho cover is higher, this one is just so beautiful

"It was released in 1968 and was intended as an antidote for the increasingly racially and politically charged climate of everyday life in the US. It uses a hopeful, optimistic tone with regards to the future in which Armstrong sings about babies being born into a better world and having a lot of look forward to. I really love the song for its lyrics and its simplicity and positive mood it conveys, and also for Armstrongs voice. It’s so laid back, chilled and has that raspy feel to it. It’s a song that I listen to on long summer days when I’m just chilling out. I think its funny how well it’s done, and how it features in a lot of films and programmers, despite the initial unsuccessful of it in America. I think the gradual success of the song has mirrored the gradual efforts of getting racial equality and this is why it’s a song that will always have its place in history and is a timeless classic." ---Saralee Simpson's Blog

170 Viva la Vida - Coldplay

It's about a a king who ruled

171 The A Team - Ed Sheeran

Seriously I know their is so many songs that mean deep things to people but this song can relate to so many people that have a drug addiction

One of the most meaningful songs I've ever heard

172 Short Change Hero - The Heavy
173 Autobiography - Nicki Minaj

Jeez. Nicki raps about her childhood, her dad ("a crack fiend"), her love for her mother, and most notably her abortion at age 15/16. Gets me choked up every single time.

174 Everybody's Fool - Evanescence

This songs goes deep in explaining in a great way the vanity of the modern societies.
Such a good song and video clip.

"Without the mask, where will you hide?
Can't find yourself, lost in your lies"

175 Both of Us - B.O.B.
176 On The Turning Away - Pink Floyd

This song is so soft and subtle. When I listen to it I feel like I'm being taking into a Irish fairytale. It lifts you up and tells you have to fight and be yourself. It fills me with a want to change for the better. I am someone who suffers from depression and this song somehow has the power to make me believe in myself.

A great song with amazing lyrics provided by Gilmour.

177 Holiday - Green Day

It's about how wars are caused by big corporations
