Some of the songs below include It's Oh So Quiet by Björk, Quiet by Demi Lovato, and Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away) by Deftones. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has quiet in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about being quiet, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
