Top Ten Greatest Kanye West Songs
The Contenders: Page 2XW
What this should be so much higher, this song deserves to be at least top 15. It's one of the best tracks in watch the throne. The smooth transitions between jay and Ye makes it easy to listen to. Not only that but the lyrics are ingenious, "sophisticated ignorance write my curses in cursive" oh my god. Not only that but the smooth integration of Otis Redding in the track is what I think makes the song deserve a higher rating
Otis at #27? What is wrong with you people? This song should easily be a lot higher. Ye and Jay switched flows so well, leading into their epic verses, both murdered this song! "Got 5 passports, I'm never going to jail" "I made Jesus Walks, I'm never going to hell" Plus Kanye flipped the sample so perfectly.
I don't know why does it have few votes, its one of my favorite songs. Jay and Kanye killed that and the video was cool.
Great song, placed 31. ? Way too low.V1 Comment
easily kanyes best song, this really was the pinacle of his career. The video is great the song has meaning. Anything Kanye does from releasing this single will be an attempt to improve on perfection
The Message In The Video For This Song Is The Whole Reason Why The Graduation Album Was Made - xXLennyKingXx
One of his best and the perfect opener to Graduation
This song hooked me when I heard it for the first time. The next one week was followed by repeat of this song.
The title of the song fits its description perfectly. A very nice song excellent lyrics.. It should be definitely in the top ten
THIS IS AMAZING! Literally. Very surprised that it is not in top ten. Kanye demonstrates his wide range and that he is not just one- demensional
This is one of best from kayneV10 Comments
I don't know why this is 28!?! This should at least be fifth. I can't believe the people who voted. They're defiantly bad voters acctually they're terrible voters. People these days don't know a thing about music. Seriously! What are people thinking?
Ya it's the best rap song I heard in my life, really it sound better than any other
How is it 20? Everyone kills this song! Play it all the time
Deserves to be #1V13 Comments
If you're a human being, you gotta listen to this song. This song is about as real as music gets. - javananthonydavis
My favorite. The most beautiful song that shows we people loved Kanye in the first place. Also I would like to point out the top 5 voted songs are all from different albums and I think that's pretty cool.
Great beat, rhythm, rap verses, and chorus.. the singer from Maroon 5 sings awesome vocals too. - Atliens
Cool lyrics, awesome best and piano, and Adam Levine at the top of his vocal game. Good songV3 Comments
This song just goes to say there's nothing stopping the power of kanye west! Yeezus! Check this song out
Probably the most profound track thematically and lyrically Kanye has ever created - Rockas
Not his best track but has the most ferocious flow
He goes hard on the trackV2 Comments
The intro is amazing, but not nicki Minaj, well she is great, but the music in the background is what gets me haha
Why is this #31, this song is super catchy and has good vocals
The slight changes in the chorus makes this song genius
Best intro to album everV4 Comments
You guys are stupid. This song should be in the top 5 at least
My goodness so low, one of the best songs from kanye west. Sick beat sick lyrics
Melody is nearly as insane a Ross' sick cameo! Heavily soul sampled beat that Yeezy laces with rhymes about " what else? " a relationship destroyed by a sexy gold-digging female's desire for, well, Kanye's gold: The way you look should be a sin / I'm preaching to the congregation / We love Jesus, but she done learned a lot from Satan. � Dope, often hilarious rhymes? A dope beat?
Guys come on, could you be more phony? Top 5 at leastV6 Comments
This is simply kanye at his realest its not your typical bob your head song but this is real music touches your soul can make you connect with kanye on a level, ths is music how it should be emotional and truth with great production simply beautiful music and MR WEST at his best they don't make it like this anymore real HIP HOP.
He has so many good songs but I'd say that this one is his best. The beat, the samples, the lyrics, everything is perfect.
This song is the most touching song ever produced by Kanye. Honestly there was the dramatic rises and different soul techniques to incorperate the emotions with the beauty side of it. I can honestly say, I related the most to this song than ANY other hip hop song.
Just the best.V10 Comments
Jay-Z and Kanye West just make a legendary duo. They work so well together, and Rihanna's hook on this is also great. It's the kind of song that gets you pumped up but still has a lot of emotion in it.
The song to good to be true put it at one
Classic song you play it anywhere and everybody will start singing
This is a classic.. The sample is beautifulV2 Comments
Amazing beat by Kanye and amazing collaboration with Nicki.
This is by far Kanye's best song. Honestly, I think this is the best rap song ever.
I like how everyone squeezed their verses in this song very good concept nicki and ross killed it
Why is it 28th it was better then some others before thisV9 Comments
Features Jay Z, Big Sean, it's THE BEST!
Main reasons this song goes in: the beat is incredibly unique and addicting and Kanye destroys his verse. - Mcgillacuddy
How isn't this #1? It's a great song because it features Jay Z and Big Sean.
This should be in the top ten so should mercyV4 Comments
Way too low! The best song on the years best album, all I need is the American Apparel girl in tights to.
Yezzy is lyrically incredible on the track. Greatest Alive He should be racking up tons of awards for this album
The amazing sample coupled with Cudi's hauntingly beautiful hook as well as the deep lyrics cement this in my mind as one of the greatest
Best lyrical song of Kanye. Throw Raekwon at the end, and you got a beast of a trackV5 Comments
This song is dope. It also has a damn good beat and meaning.
Now you asking why songs like through the Wire are before Love Lockdown which is one of his more mediocre songs in my opinion
How the hell is this 44. Kanye West goes hard in verse 1 and the beat is just golden.
The best song off of his best album
Wicked bass line. Lyrics are on point!V3 Comments
I can't be bothered to explain it all again, so just read Mushroom99s top ten list of kanye west, because that IS ME! - Mushroom99
IS IT SOME KIND OF JOKE..? Love lockdown at 17 below songs like through the wire, can't tell me nothing, all falls down man it should be in top 5 right away that what it deserves knye west didn't decide to put it as lead single for his album without thinking he put it because he thought it was one of his best songs SO PLEASE FANS OF HIS SHOW SOME JUST VOTE FOR THIS SONG!
! Are you serious, Love Lockdown is one of his best songs, the piano, the African drum beat, and that screaming animal sound or whistle I don't know, is just making of an amazing song, and the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2008 Remix Is even a little better than the original
This song is awesome kanye west is the best rapper ever - cheezo8
808s was not one of my more favoured albums from Kanye but I loved this song at first listen - McgillacuddyV14 Comments
This is a great song. I don't know who the chorus is but it's really good. This songs simple yet FANTASTIC. And I wonder...
I Wonder is an amazing sample of who he is and what he believes. It speaks of how his dreams have come true, while addressing aspects of himself and concepts we can relate to it as well, while having an amazing beat with a sick chorus and epic bass.
Really, this is a masterpiece of music
One big reason why Graduation has always been my favorite Kanye album. His sample usage for the beats was just excellent. - Mcgillacuddy
