Abstract: Songs created by artists during Thailand's 2011 floods played a part in consoling the victims, creating hope and inspiring them. The objective of this paper is to analyze those songs in terms of their contents and literary language. The results of the study of these 30 songs show that they are aesthetic in both content and literary language. The contents are concerned with sending love, care and best wishes to all Thai people as well as giving them hope and encouragement so that they can survive during the crisis. Literary language found in these songs can be categorized into a careful selection of words and meanings, vowel and consonant rhymes, the use of figures of speech as well as word and meaning repetitions.
