"Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way"

Time is one of the most meaningful songs I've ever listen to. The song has a very deep message. That eventually you'll run out of time. This song deserves to be in the top 10.

This song has so much meaning behind it. The song shares a very deep message. That eventually we will all run out time.

This song inst just one of the best songs of the 70's, its one of the best songs EVER. This definitively deserves to be in the top 5!

And then one day you find.. ten years have got behind you.. no one told you when to run.. you missed the starting gun!
And you people missed that "Vote" little button on the right of the song's title.

46Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love - Van Halen
47Bat Out of Hell - Meat Loaf
48Vincent (Starry, Starry Night) - Don McLean

One of the greatest song writers who ever existed.
One of the most inspirational songs.
This song shows us that although vincent suffered with mental illness we must not remember this in his legacy but look at the beauty he created even though he suffered with an illness. He was a misunderstood soul who believed that living in this world was no longer worth it. He must respect and honor his beauty. We thank Don McLean for giving us clear insight into the life of this troubled soul.
