    I like music and lyrics

    that mean something. Music that gives you a feeling. Sang and played with emotion. I think Black by Pearl Jam is a good example. Aerosmith-Dream On is another

    Any kind of song with meaning is fine,

    just as long as it makes sense and each line goes with what the song is saying. You can even sing a song about writing a song or sing a song about eating lettuce, just as long as it has a meaning. A song without meaning just doesn't work. People who get the rhythm and melody but...

    I Like Music With Meaning - The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald

    This song has so much meaning for me.  It is a true song and I remember this night so well.  I was seventeen and alone with my newborn baby girl.  She was sleeping peacefully on the couch beside me.   My heart was in my throat as I worried about the plight of these poor...

    This is a video I made for my brothers band.It didn't sync as well as I had hoped, but I still like it. I should do it again and try to get it right.

    I think it burns my since of truth to hear me

    shouting in my youth I need a way to sort it out. After I die I rewake redefine what was at stake from the hot side of a god. I see the people that I used, see the substance I abused, the ugly places that I lived. Did I make money was I proud? Did I play my songs to loud. Did I...

    I'm listening to Eminem recovery,

    this is what I like to listen to when I'm hurting inside, conflicted with the thought of using again. I love that today I'm clean and drug free. Hell yeah I'm the winner. Bless all you that have got and stayed clean.

    I love finding a song

    where the lyrics are so relevant to what I'm experiencing; it's a nice feeling to know that I'm not the only one feeling the way I do.

    Believe it or not I was a fan of pop music,

    I loved Lady gaga, Kesha, and Katy perry. But as I grew older I learned that some of the pop songs today have clearly no meaning, in my opinion. So I turned to metal and rock, I grew to love Evanescence more (I liked their songs even when I loved pop) and I started listening to...

    I love this heading, "I like Music With Meaning,

    " but doesn't all music have meaning?!? Someone has initiative for their tones to be heard over [x] broadcast(s). All initial thoughts have meaning (the brain's synapsis). For those who have 'meaningless music,' press forward until a resolution can find itself.

    More importantly, I like how music gives

    experiences meaning. Anyone who says that music is not important is... well, just flat-out lying. A perfect example: One day, a long time ago, I was leaving work to go to an interview, and I had a thought that I'm sure many of us have had.. I had a "freak out" moment and thought...

    Everyone is raving over Pharell William's song

    HAPPY. That includes me. I am sure that many people like it for different reasons. The beginning of it seems to say his happiness comes from a relationship. He says, "Sunshine she's here, you can take a break" Boy! If she can out shine the sun in his life, she truly brings a...

    How Could I Not?

    Music without meaning would be pointless to me.Lyrics are key for me. The way they are sung, accentuated by the instrumentals, can make me feel a number of emotions. I typically prefer music that I can relate to: lyrics that embody the exact way that I have been feeling, my views...

    Music Is My Cure

    I love music, it's my cure for loneliness and for my bad mood. I just lock myself in my room whenever I feel bad, whenever I need serenity and peace of mind. I love meaningful songs. I hate loud and non-sense music! They're just noise, very unpleasant to my ear. I hate dumb songs...

    I think we all like songs

    that remind us awesome times.Lyrics sure are meaningful but sometimes a simple melody can bring you to a state of trance.I am repeating myself when I say I like all kind of music...for all kind of moods.
