There are some songs that contain an important message. One such song is "Alyssa Lies" by Jason Michael Carroll. Shown below is a link to the video clip. It's a very sad song based on the true story of a little girl who died as a result of child abuse. The song's message is simple: if you see or know of a child who's being abused, do the right thing and tell someone. You might just save that child's life.

Virtually everyone has heard numerous songs that contain social or political messages. In fact, protest songs are a well-known song genre.

I think that while all songs have some kind of message, some scream out very specific ones. In fact, one that always seems to come back to me all the time is Martina McBride's Concrete Angel and the subject of child abuse as the initial post briefly mentioned. I think it would be pretty neat to create a list of songs that have important messages to us in this thread with a link. It could be social, environmental, political, etc... keeping things appropriate of course.
