Songs that mean something...
These don't have to be good songs... just songs that you remind you of something or mean something...

Here is one an example... became a signature tune for me before I emigrated from the UK to Australia. Plus I loved the tune when it was released years earlier when I was a young squirt,

In college, we used to have roof top parties and this song had a lot of meaning.

I always liked the poetic and tranquil flow of Janis Ian's "At Seventeen", which a young lad who feels left out because of how they are can take to as well as a young lady.

Another song that has great meaning for me (and likely for many men of my generation) is Harry Chapin's "Cat's in the Cradle".

Another that will always transport me back to my magical days in Madrid is Mecano's "Cruz de Navajas".

Murat, the vid's not available any more. Is there any way to reupload it?

I find a lot of rock songs having meaningful text
for example BVB's 'In the End'





Cool You can win only if you play! Cool

RE: Songs that mean something...
I thought I would resurrect this thread as it got surprisingly few comments. At any rate, I just returned from a golfing trip with my father and brother (no girlfriends or wives) up in northern Georgia, USA and, naturally, we went back to old music that had meaning in our lives. My father was playing his old Roy Orbison tunes (I personally dig "Only in Dreams"--just fabulous); Just for fun and a laugh I put on a little Glen Campbell from his old Goodtime Hour television show from the early Seventies ("Gentle on my Mind" and "Wichita Lineman") and followed it up with early Rick James ("You and I"--which my Dad liked too), then my younger brother was spinning early Tears for Fears from his high school days ("Shout" and "Everybody Wants to Rule the World"). In short, we had a blast with the music, old videos of golfing up there a decade ago and loads of laughs. All that music was great and reminded us of old times.
