    Bohemian Rhapsody, no doubt. The lyrics illustrate the story super well

    Not all good songs need to tell an actual story through their lyrics, some can never happen, yet they're good songs, Stairway to Heaven is an amazing song, and it tells a fantasy story through its lyrics

    ah yes,  i shpould have elaborated.  i was looking for great well written songs that had an actuall real life meaning.  a story behind the words.  the beatles did a good job on the song, however you should watch on you tube, as the kelly family sang it; live version  @excon

    Spring Day by BTS:


    Not only is it inspired by friendship, and Ursula K. Le Guin's novel 'The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas', the images in the music video were inspired by the Sewol Ferry disaster.

    Here are the lyrics, translated into English:

    Same applies to American Pie, A once struggling Don McLean was asked what the lyrics mean....."They mean that I get to pay my debts"

    I get the feeling you don't actually know what that atrocious song by Don McLean is actually about, as most people don't. If you would like some of the interpretations of the messages in the song, I will be happy to do so for you. But take my word for it, his message is of no real impactful importance. It's only a personal observation of popular culture at the time the song was made.

    Not all good songs need to tell an actual story through their lyrics, some can never happen, yet they're good songs, Stairway to Heaven is an amazing song, and it tells a fantasy story through its lyrics
    Led Zeppelin used lyrical imagery and thematic elements in their songs, but many of them have no apparent meaning including stairway to heaven. A common theme in Zeppelin songs is justice and things that corrupt it, or inhibit it from being fulfilled. The story talks about a woman trying to buy a stairway to heaven. Obviously the imagery of this implies she's trying to circumvent the proper fulfillment of getting to heaven and buy her way to heaven instead of doing all the things one is expected to do to get to heaven. In other words, she's trying to circumvent the proper fulfillment of justice.

    Gallows pole also uses the same theme. It's a song about a condemned man who pleads with his hangman to let him go if he gives him riches and his sister who does not resist her brothers request to offer herself to the hangman. In the end, the hangman ends up hanging the condemned man's sister. There is no real conclusive interpretation of these lyrics, but instead a message purposely made to be open for interpretation.           

    In stairway to heaven, one of the most stand out lines is "yes there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run there's still time to change the road your on. It's hard to not interpret this as some kind of message of hope, but still without any specific meaning.

    Actually, the song is about how the new popular culture icons were communist drug addict homosexuals who rejected the old values of America which the good ole boys use to have as values. It's a song about the fall of the US into decadence.

    matter of opinion, however, when it was produced , clean stated it was about the loss of the singers.  i think it was in rolling stone magazine.  @piloteer

    I reckon that God save the queen is the best the one done by the sex pustules. Johnny rotten really did a good job of singing that and I bet the queen really hated it since he implied that she had a fachist regime. @maxx

    I'm not the hugest Zeppelin fan now that I'm getting old, but yes, many Led Zeppelin songs were very good despite my feelings on them.

    That is true, the song was actually banned in Britain for a time, BUT, John Lydon (Rotten) has publicly distanced himself from any messages of resentment the song may have conveyed and denied that he does, or ever has had any feelings of resentment towards the Queen or the people of Britain. When there was a campaign to get the song to reach the number 1 spot in the UK charts after it was re-released in 2001, John Lydon publicly said he did not support that campaign because the reason for the campaign undermined everything the sex pistols stood for, and the song was never meant to be a hateful song, just a protest song. Mr Lydon says he appreciates that the music of the sex pistols has been reissued for a new generation of fans, but he does not want his message to be construed as anti-British or resentful towards the Queen.
