Top 5 song on world peace and social issues..

Being a 90’s kid I grew up listening to songs which meant something. The era of music where lyrics meant something is slowly fading away. Music helps to face reality and fight our demons. As today the world is in turmoil with war, climate change, civil unrest, music can unite us. And by that, I meant songs with real meaning, not song these days where singers talk about money, drugs and glorify themselves. So here are the top 5 songs on social issues according to me…

5. Blame It On Me – Akon

Released in 2005, the song deals with modern problems related to society and how nobody wants to take the blame. It deals with our mistakes and how it affects the people in our life. “As life goes on I’m starting to learn more and more about responsibility” makes us realise that its time to grow up and act accordingly for us and our loved ones…

4. Lost in the echo – Linkin Park

Linkin Park always helps us to face the harsh reality. They have always provided hope through their music. We all must have lost someone near and dear to us and this song helps to ease the pain. And finally letting them go.

In these promises broken deep below
Each word gets lost in the echo
So one last lie I can see through
This time I finally let you

3. Stay Together For The Kids – Blink 182

The music video starts with “50% of American household are destroyed by divorce”. This song is about divorces and how it affects the kids and family. It bleeds for all the houses broken by divorce and gives the kids hope to survive. Fights occur in a household but always stay strong and have hope…

Their anger hurts my ears
Been running strong for seven years
Rather than fix the problems
They never solve them
It makes no sense at all
I see them every day
We get along, so why can’t they?
If this is what he wants
And this is what she wants
Then why is there so much pain?

2. We believe – Good Charlotte

In this world of war and unrest, this world forces us to believe in peace and love. This song is a messenger of peace and world love. The video displays peoples struggle all over the world and people who still believe in peace. It’s high time that we come together and believe…

We are all the same
Human in all our ways and all of the pain
There’s a love that could fall down like rain
Let forgiveness wash away the pain
And no one really knows what they are searching for
This world is crying for so much more

1. One – Metallica

One describes the horrors of war. It describes the consequences of war and how it affects people. The soldiers sacrifice their life and future for a war declared by the aristocrats. In the video, little kids ask “what is a democracy”. It gives a message to stop the war by showing the horror of it…

Now that the war is through with me
I’m waking up, I cannot see
That there is not much left of me
Nothing is real but pain now Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please, God, wake me
