There are relatively few songs that will make you think about life; most songs that we listen to err more on the side of love, romance, or heartbreak. However, there are a few songs that will make you think about life that are also amazing to listen to! Here is a compilation of a few of the songs that I love to listen to and that often make me think.
Of all the songs that will make you think about life, I am pretty sure the Harry Chapin song, Cats in the Cradle, tops the list. This song is about a young boy whose father never has time to play with him as a child. As the father grows old, he realizes he missed out on his son’s life and wants to see him; but, now the boy is busy with his own family and doesn’t have time to see his father. This song is heartbreaking but makes you remember to make time for the important people in your life no matter how crazy your life may get!
