Which songs do you think have real meaning?

The kind of song that really resonates with you, whether it has a clear meaning that is quite, i dunno, profound maybe? Or the kind of song that’s open to so many different interpretations….

Patience– Nas & Damian Marley ~One of the best and deepest songs I know. All damian marley songs actually (road to zion, stand a chance, it was written, leaders, etc)

Simple man– Lynyrd Skynyrd: All around great songs and great lyrics

Ok these guys Chill Bump have some of the best rap I’ve ever heard, with amazing lyrics, and it’s all FREE! I implore to download all their albums but definitely listen to these songs: Five Minute Breather, Melancholy, Raise Up, It’s Alive, Lost in the Sound, Snip Snip, all of The Loop album

Uncle Sam Goddamn– Brother Ali: About America/capitalism

Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta–Geto Boys: Just a feel good song to keep it real

Any Bob Dylan really ~(Blowin in the wind, the times they are a-changin, like a rolling stone, mr tambourine man, etc.)

Bob Marley as well (redemption song, exodus, one love, one drop, get up stand up, work, etc.)

Lose Yourself and Till I Collapse by Eminem: Great motivational songs…never give up

Immortal Technique is great if you’re interested in politically active songs/songs about real world problems and revolution, etc. Good rapper.

We’ll Never Know–Logic: Real song, real talk, no bullshit. Criticizes world problems. Worth the listen man. Makes you really think

Keep’n It Real–Shaggy: Sometimes you just need a reality check

Changes–2Pac: Real nigga. More also (ghetto gospel, keep ya head up, my block, etc)

@paralyticdreams, @transcendentalwanderer, @jakefloria, @drazzilblazin, @fleshbeck,

There are some amazing songs there guys, and stuff that’s also led me to other awesome stuff via youtube.

One of my favourites is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNy8llTLvuA
Mumford and sons ‘The Cave’,

Most songs by Nirvana have a strong meaning, such as “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, which is about forming a revolution against powerful authority figures.

This is a much more hardcore approach but the entire Parallax II: Future Sequence album by Between the Buried and Me. Its a conceptual album with a huge arching story spanning their last 3 or 4 albums. The story and music itself is stellar and the story can be seen as representative as how we humans are destroying ourselves but that is left up to interpretation.

If you all haven’t heard of Nahko and Medicine for the People check them out. Fairly new band up and rising. Powerful message to spread.

Also, Xavier Rudd and Trevor Hall :)
