What songs do you feel have the deepest or most meaningful lyrics? I usually don't pay much attention to lyrics, but some songs have lyrics powerful enough that the music doesn't really matter. ohmy.gif

Anything goes, sad songs, inspirational, religious, just about anything... cool.gif

I don't know very many lyrics, but let's see what I can think of...

Dream On - Aerosmith
Dust In the Wind - Kansas
- Both songs about time passing by.

In This Diary - The Ataris
- About your youth being the best time of your life, don't let it pass by.

Be Yourself - Audioslave
- Um... Be yourself... mellow.gif

In the Name of God - Dream Theatre
- About atrocities committed supposedly "in the name of God."

Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits
- Well, what I get out of it is making music for yourself, not to conform to whatever others expect. "It ain;t what they call, rock n' roll..."

Good Charlotte huh.gif Several songs, actually... I like their lyrics.
- The World is Black; the world looks bleak sometimes.
- The Anthem; Be yourself, "Don't want to ever be you, don't want to be just like you"
- We Believe; Having faith even during hard times.

Drive - Incubus
- Take control of your life.

Do You Remember - Jack Johnson
- Just another cheesy reminiscing song... rolleyes.gif

Castles Made of Sand - Jimi Hendrix
- Dreams coming to an end.

John Mayer, too many to name, he has great lyrics! biggrin.gif

Hurt - Nine Inch Nails (But I like the Johnny Cash version better! biggrin.gif )
- Realizing you've become something that you hate.

Don't Stop Believing - Journey
-About never giving up on your dreams.

Kutless, got 2 here.
-Million Dollar Man - Money doesn't really matter, "he's got everything he wanted, but now all he wants is what he had"
-Sea of Faces - About not getting caught up in what you're "supposed" to be, just be yourself.

Going to California - Led Zeppelin
- About finding a new beginning.

Muse, got a couple here, too.
-Starlight - About love staying true in any circumstances.
-Bliss - This gives me the idea of how seemingly "perfect" people (celebrities and the like) cause everyday people to feel worthless.

Lullaby - Pedro the Lion
- Never give up hope.

Red Hot Chili Peppers, got a few from them, too.
-Californication - The effect Hollywood has in making the world such a material place.
-The Zephyr Song - Freaking awesome, because it's about me! laugh.gif biggrin.gif dry.gif Maybe not...
-Under the Bridge - How your hometown is a part of you.

U2, quite possibly the most inspirational band ever!
-Beautiful Day - Seize the day!
-Where the Streets Have No Name - Fighting injustice around the world.

Every Song Ever Written By - Steve Vai/Joe Satriani
- It doesn't need words, freaking awesome!

*Whew* mellow.gif That was quite a list, I just went through my play list and added any that I remembered had meaningful lyrics... Let's see what you guys come up with! wink.gif I'm sure there's a heck of a lot that I forgot, but oh, well.

Eric Johnson - Lonely In The Night

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"
