Songs With Secret Meanings

When we listen to songs, our brain remembers the tune and lyrics so that soon-if you liked it, you'll become obsessed. We can sing many songs but not actually know the proper meaning, we may assume its about something like love, but it can be about so many other things, when we sing Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, do we think "is this song about AIDS?", or "am I singing a song about murder?". The meanings for songs like Bohemian Rhapsody and Stairway to Heaven may never be known, but this list is here to prove many meanings for songs. Feel free to leave comments and even add a new song on the add item list. Make sure you give a full answer though. Enjoy the list.

21 The Flight of Apollo - Angels & Airwaves
22 In This River - Black Label Society

This song means more than any other on the list its about zakk wyldes best mate dimebag darrel dyind its a awesome tribute that means a loot to pantera and dimebag darrel fans

23 Rock You Like a Hurricane - Scorpions
24 Take Me to Church - Hozier
25 Murder Game - Kevin Gates
26 Creep - Radiohead

Even the band itself have stated that this is more of a happy song and as of why. The follow up for this song is My Iron Lung and like other than that: other songs with them, like Fake Plastic Trees and Bangers & Mash sounds in certain ways but the lyrics quite differs. I have no personal favourite with the band but I adore songs with them like Backdrifts and The National Anthem as well as of Tell Me Bitch and Jerusalem from Thom Yorke's On A Friday era. P.S Ever heard of Atoms For Peace?

27 Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds - The Beatles

Its about LSD. Because if you look at the song name its Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. And the song lyrics really explain themselves

28 Darkness Within - Machine Head

Many people will think this song is about depression or dying, but it is actually about having a deep love for music.

29 Them Bones - Alice In Chains

I think its about the fact that why live if your going to die? The music video shows insects killing each other, but its not that obvious at first

30 Kim - Eminem
31 Lithium - Nirvana

Lithium is an anti-depressant drug and the verses of the song represent the stages a person goes through while on the drug. "I'm so happy... Cause today I found my friends, they're in my head. I'm so ugly, that's okay cause so are you." And then the end of the song becomes angry, uncontrollable, and blazing with confusion and rage. "I like it I'm not gonna crack. I miss you I'm not gonna crack. I love you I'm not gonna crack! I'd KILL you I'm not gonna crack! "

32 I Am the Walrus - The Beatles

This is the song that INVENTED secret meanings!

33 Norwegian Wood - The Beatles

John Lennon's confession to having an affair.

34 Sexy Sadie - The Beatles

Blasts the Maharishi for being really just a dirty old man.

35 Beauty School - Deftones
36 Semi-Charmed Life - Third Eye Blind
37 Mamma Mia - ABBA

I don't know what it is about, but did a video about happy sounding songs with secret lyrics and one of the honorable mentions was Mamma Mia.

38 Leaving On a Jet Plane - John Denver

Seemingly a love song about young lovers, the singer of which has been a regretful fool. However, one unsung version laments in the last chorus, "Don't know if I'll be back again." The reason is that the jet plane is taking him to Vietnam and yes he doesn't come back.

39 Hot Fun In the Summertime - Sly and the Family Stone

While on the outside it talks about a beautiful summer day, it has a more political meaning in reality

40 The End - The Doors
