Don’t Turn a Deaf Ear: Top Songs About Being Ignored

Are you tired of being ignored? Do you feel like no one listens to what you have to say? Well, fear not my friends! Because here are some of the top songs about being ignored that will make you shake off those feelings of invisibility and embrace your inner superstar!


Being ignored can be one of the most frustrating things in life. Whether it’s in personal relationships or even social media, there’s nothing worse than feeling like your voice isn’t being heard. But hey, we’ve all been there! So why not channel those emotions into something positive? And what better way to do that than through music?

1. “Say Something” by A Great Big World ft Christina Aguilera

If there is an anthem for anyone who has ever felt unheard or invisible, it’s this song. With haunting vocals and a stunning piano accompaniment, “Say Something” makes us feel everything we hate about unrequited love.

2. “Blank Space” by Taylor Swift (She knows best)

Swift never shies away from her experiences with cutting her enemies down – without them realizing they’re drowning while she drinks their tears (OK – maybe more overdramatic than realistic). Nonetheless here she reminds us; It’s important not to take communication games seriously.

3.”All By Myself” by Celine Dion (Classic)

Ah yes! The classic power ballad that we all know and love! This timeless hit from Ms Dion is for anyone who is feeling lonely or neglected. Delivered with raw passion- if singing along doesn’t melt your heart then please check if yours is still beating.


Some may argue this isn’t entirely related but I dare say together these lyrics assist our silence coping mechanism.
“Living alone/I think of all the friends I’ve known/But when I dial the telephone/Nobody’s home”

4. “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” by Adele (Strong vocal, Stronger Message)

Do you sometimes feel invisible to people who should be prioritizing your feelings? Adele makes a bold declaration here that even though her ex has moved on; she is willing to let them know that their new partner is not exempt from being sent some manners and respect for replaying our pain.

5.”Ghost” by Ella Henderson (Effective Comparison)

You thought it’d last forever – but now you’re left with an empty seat at the table. Filing up their emptiness we become someone else’s ghost- haunting memories of what once was while reminding us that past emotions can linger longer than wanted.


“I keep going to the river to pray
And at most, I’m sleeping all these demons away…”

6. “Irreplaceable” by Beyonce (Queen B knows about everything)

There ain’t nobody quite like Queen B! In “Irreplaceable,” Beyoncé reminds everyone there comes a time where things don’t work out because simply put – they didn’t see how lucky they were in the present moments. Now move over before Captain Obvious pays y’all a visit!


We’ve taken lessons already but one more wouldn’t hurt.
“To the left, To the Left” if he won’t value then leave without hesitation… Make plans.”
Okay fine another!
“Everything you own in a box”…

7.”No Scrubs” by TLC (Direct message!)

Twenty years after its release, “No Scrubs” still remains relevant! The ladies of TLC remind listeners it’s unacceptable and disrespectful for potential partners scraping through life undeservingly demanding attention or chances just because they’re too proud or unmotivated to do better for themselves.

8.”It’s Too Late” by Carole King (Ironic approach…)

A heartwarming tune about realizing you were the problem than any other party. This piece is a gentle shift treating being ignored with irony and reminding us that sometimes it could be something we ourselves weren’t even conscious of; maybe try compromising next time?


“Still I see shadows all in my room
Can’t take back the love that I gave…”

9.”The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World (Patience pays)

This band knows indecisive friends can be rewarding – but similarly, their flakiness can have annoying consequences. The upbeat song encourages people to maintain patience while keeping an open door policy without undermining theirselves’ contribution- as eventually this waiting game will have reciprocated efforts soon.


“It just takes some time
Little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride…”

10.”Creep” Radiohead (Something Different)

Alternative rock legends Radiohead struck a chord with disenchanted listeners who identify with staking out outside someone’s house begging them to listen to our pleas when they’ve made it clear they’ve had enough. Take away remains – Just pick yourself up and find someone else worthy.

Verse One:

“When you were here before
Couldn’t look you in the eye
You’re just like an angel… Your skin makes me cry”


To wrap it up- whether filtered pictures on social media or real-life interactions; there are moments where everyone may feel invisible or overlooked. And one way we choose battling these emotions is through music therapy recommended by nobody! But hey-here it is (for laughs). So go ahead! Give one of these songs above a spin, (if there is an ‘old-fashioned’ term for it) and remember: it will be okay.
