What is the effect of a Bullying Song?

Bullying songs have not necessarily been the core topic of songwriting in previous years, but with the attention on bullying in recent years, a number of artists have taken on the topic. The songs they have produced have had very strong messages with positive words for those who have or will feel like victims, with directions on how to stop the bullying and related hurt as well. Some of the most recent, popular good bullying songs include the following:

  • Katy Perry, Firework –

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?

Do you ever feel already buried deep six feet under?
Screams but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there’s still a chance for you
‘Cause there’s a spark in you?

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

‘Cause, baby, you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go, “Aah, aah, aah”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colours burst
Make ’em go, “Aah, aah, aah”
You’re gonna leave ’em all in awe, awe, awe

You don’t have to feel like a wasted space
You’re original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe a reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow
And when it’s time you’ll know

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

‘Cause, baby, you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go, “Aah, aah, aah”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colours burst
Make ’em go, “Aah, aah, aah”
You’re gonna leave ’em all in awe, awe, awe

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It’s always been inside of you, you, you
And now it’s time to let it through-ough-ough

‘Cause, baby, you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go, “Aah, aah, aah”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colours burst
Make ’em go, “Aah, aah, aah”
You’re gonna leave ’em all in awe, awe, awe

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon

  • Christina Aguilera, Beautiful –

Don’t look at me

Every day is so wonderful

Then suddenly it’s hard to breathe.

Now and then I get insecure

From all the pain, I’m so ashamed.

I am beautiful no matter what they say.

Words can’t bring me down.

I am beautiful in every single way.

Yes, words can’t bring me down… Oh no.

So don’t you bring me down today.

To all your friends you’re delirious,

So consumed in all your doom.

Trying hard to fill the emptiness.

The pieces gone, left the puzzle undone.

is that the way it is?

You are beautiful no matter what they say

Words can’t bring you down….oh no

You are beautiful in every single way

Yes, words can’t bring you down, oh, no

So don’t you bring me down today…

No matter what we do

(no matter what we do)

No matter what we say

(no matter what we say)

We’re the song inside the tune

Full of beautiful mistakes

And everywhere we go

(and everywhere we go)

The sun will always shine

(the sun will always, always shine)

And tomorrow we might wake on the other side

We are beautiful no matter what they say

Yes, words won’t bring us down, no, no

We are beautiful in every single way

Yes, words can’t bring us down, oh, no

So don’t you bring me down today

Oh, yeah, don’t you bring me down today, yeah, ooh

Don’t you bring me down ooh… today

  • Green Day, Boulevard of Broken Dreams –

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don’t know where it goes
But it’s home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I’m the only one and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk a…

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart’s the only thing that’s beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
‘Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, aaah-ah,
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah

I’m walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line
Of the edge and where I walk alone

Read between the lines
What’s fucked up and everything’s alright
Check my vital signs
To know I’m still alive and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk a…

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart’s the only thing that’s beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
‘Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, aaah-ah
Ah-ah, ah-ah

I walk alone
I walk a…

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I’m the only one and I walk a…

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart’s the only thing that’s beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
‘Til then I walk alone…

  • Peter Yarrow, Don’t Laugh at Me –

I’m a little boy with glasses

The one they call a geek

A little girl who never smiles

‘Cause I have braces on my teeth

And I know how it feels to cry myself to sleep

I’m that kid on every playground

The one that’s chosen last

A single teenage mother

Tryin’ to overcome my past

You don’t have to be my friend

But is it too much to ask?

Don’t laugh at me

Don’t call me names

Don’t get your pleasure from my pain

In God’s eyes we’re all the same

Someday we’ll all have perfect wings

Don’t laugh at me

I’m the beggar on the corner

You’ve passed me on the street

And I wouldn’t be out here beggin’

If I had enough to eat

And don’t think I don’t notice

That our eyes never meet

Don’t laugh at me

Don’t call me names

Don’t get your pleasure from my pain

In God’s eyes we’re all the same

Someday we’ll all have perfect wings

Don’t laugh at me

I’m fat, I’m thin, I’m short, I’m tall

I’m deaf, I’m blind, hey, aren’t we all

Don’t laugh at me

Don’t call me names

Don’t get your pleasure from my pain

In God’s eyes we’re all the same

Someday we’ll all have perfect wings

Don’t laugh at me

  • Blink 182, Adam’s Song –

I never thought I’d die alone

I laughed the loudest who’d have known

I traced the cord back to the wall

No wonder it was never plugged in at all

I took my time, I hurried up

The choice was mine, I didn’t think enough

I’m too depressed, to go on

You’ll be sorry when I’m gone

I never conquered, rarely came

16 just held such better days

Days when I still felt alive

We couldn’t wait to get outside

The world was wide, too late to try

The tour was over we’d survived

I couldn’t wait till I got home

To pass the time in my room alone

I never thought I’d die alone

Another six months I’ll be unknown

Give all my things to all my friends

You’ll never step foot in my room again

You’ll close it off, board it up

Remember the time that I spilled the cup

Of apple juice in the hall

Please tell mom this is not her fault

I never conquered, rarely came

At 16 just held such better days

Days when I still felt alive

We couldn’t wait to get outside

The world was wide, too late to try

The tour was over but we’d survived

I couldn’t wait till I got home

To pass the time in my room alone

I never conquered, rarely came

Tomorrow held such better days

Days when I could still feel alive

When I can’t wait to get outside

The world is wide, the time goes by

The tour is over I survived

And I can’t wait till I get home

To pass the time in my room alone

There are plenty of other choices for a good bullying song, and they all share the same message – victims don’t have to tolerate their pain and hurt, and they definitely don’t have to give up and throw away life because of a bully’s actions. So enjoy good music and learn a thing or two about bullying in the process.
