The lyrics in Imagine Dragons' songs are meaningful and heartfelt, and can make you feel both extremely happy, or almost bring you to tears, depending on the song. Their lyrics are treasures in the music world in every single way.
Imagine dragons has some great lyrics. They have deep meanings. If you don't know what I'm talking about, try listening to some of their other songs like Nothing Left to Say, Hear Me, Round and Round, Tiptoe, and pretty much their whole Night Visions Album. Not just judging from what you hear in Radioactive, Demons, It's Time, and On Top if the World.
The lyrics are very powerful when you listen to them and when accompanied by the beat makes you feel hyper in a positive or negative way (depending on the song, of course). The positive are Radioactive and I Bet My Life and the negative Gold and Battle Cry.
Some of the most amazing lyrics I've heard.
Listen to Smoke + Mirrors (hands-down their best and most overlooked album) and you'll find 21 completely different pieces of music, woven together simply by the production and where their hearts and heads were at during their time on the road. It's a familiar and often unpleasant headspace presented in so many different, catchy, sombre and uplifting moments; moments of hopelessness and despair are bookended by joy and optimism and power. That 21 unique songs can reflect a confused mind and it be so ridiculously listenable - don't for a second tell me that they were a "formulaic pop band" on this one, it's artistry.
A few other musical standouts from other EPs and LPs: I Need A Minute, Drive, Uptight, Leave Me, Look How Far We've Come, Emma, Tiptoe, Cha-Ching, Round & Round, The River, Selene, Cover Up, I Don't Mind, America, Not Today, 30 Lives, Destination, I'll Make It Up To You.
Their songs are awesome. But only a few almost everyone knows. But, they have so many good songs! Emma, Drive, I Need A Minute, Smoke + Mirrors, It Comes Back to You, Dream, The Fall, Tiptoe, Amsterdam and every other song they have made.
Not any song sounds like another. Great musicianship.
Here are some examples:
Round And Round - Society today and how you should be yourself and live your own life.
Uptight - Live life to the fullest, even though you're nervous and not sure about taking risks.
Lost Cause - Going through depression.
The River - Cleansing your sins for a crime you didn't commit.
Cha-ching - Live life, because you won't be young forever.
Five pretty good examples. - Wolftail
Who we are- Don't ever give up, no matter who tells you to. They call you crazy, but it doesn't matter if you've gone too far. It's who you are and you should be proud of it.
Ready Aim Fire- You can't break us or change what we do.
Monster- If you saw me at my worst, would you leave me?
Warriors- Be strong.
There's so many more. These are just a few of them.
A good example for this:
On Top Of The World and Lost Cause. - Wolftail
Amazing use of drums! 🎶 - Wolftail
Unlike other modern singers, Dan sounds raw and natural. Sure he may use autotune, but not always - TheDarkOne_221b
No one wrote a comment about this I mean the vocals on the songs Demons and Radioactive and ready aim fire awesome.
Smoke and Mirrors goes so many different directions vocally like how do you go from that soft singing that's done in most of the song to yelling in the same song and it all fits together
Now dan can sing
Just listen to Uptight 2:50 through the song. Amazing! - Wolftail
If you ever laugh and say "no they aren't" then you've obviously never listened to Radioactive and Who We Are. They're so different it's almost hard to believe the same band created these songs.
Wow I love this list--its good to see other ID fanatics as myself
Every song is definitely unique and different! This is why I'm also such a HUGE fan of ID and their songs chnanged my world!
I had to put this here, sorry mainstream pop fans. - Wolftail
Who We Are, Battle Cry, Lost Cause, Ready Aim Fire are really good songs and fit the movie that they were made for perfectly. - Wolftail
YASS! to be honest its why I got into them in the first place then realized how amazing they were - Rathernotbenamed
