81 Concrete Angel - Martina McBride

This is a beautiful song and anyone who has been through a form of abuse will cry listening to this song and watching the video, you MUST watch the video.

82 Sorry - Madonna
83 Blowin' In the Wind - Bob Dylan

Probably one if not the best anti-war movement songs ever written despite not being the first intention. I'm amazed by how All Along the Watchtower has not appeared yet. It should be number 1.

Yay

84 Holy Wars... the Punishment Due - Megadeth

lyrics go like this: "Brother will kill brother, spilling blood across the land, killing for relegion some thing I don't understand. fools like me who cross the sea and come to foreighn land, ask the sheep for their beliefs do you kill on gods command. "etc This list is the worstly arranged list in top tens. People like Jennifer Lopez and Britney Spears don't make good lyrics. Megadeth is really very underrated band. this song is amazing. -

85 Crucify Your Mind - Rodriguez

Just adore him. His music defines my youth.

If you've seen the movie "searching for sugarman" you'll know that rodriguez is like a forgotten dylan. - RecklessGreed

86 Please - Ludo
87 Even the Gods Cry - The Turtlenecks
88 A Little Bit of Everything - Dawes
89 Waterloo Sunset - The Kinks

One of the most beautiful rock songs ever,

One of the most beautiful rock songs ever.

90 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year.
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.
Writer: WATERS, ROGER/GILMOUR, David JON

It's just poetic. May be hard for someone to understand a so deep meaning... Should be in top 10 in my opinion!

This isn't a song. It's a poem. It's such a beautifully worded masterpiece of how much they miss Syd Barret.
"How I wish, h is I wish you were here. We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year"

91 Same Love - Macklemore

It is a beautiful song that describes the right to choice... And also of how low we think... A thoughtful song that makes you question your thinking!

This song should really be higher in the list! It makes me cry every time I listen to it.

Never listen to that song yet, but after reading those lyrics they are deep, well written and honest, I've got to say without even hearing the song..pretty moving.
