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
http://chillbump.bandcamp.com/

Uncle Sam Goddamn– Brother Ali: About America/capitalism
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDi9eHTvis0

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)

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.
