421 I Need a Doctor - Dr. Dre I Need a Doctor - Dr. Dre
422 I Miss You - Blink-182 I Miss You - Blink-182
423 Fly Like a Bird - Mariah Carey Fly Like a Bird - Mariah Carey V 1 Comment
424 When You're Gone - Avril Lavigne When You're Gone - Avril Lavigne
425 Jaws On the Floor - You Me at Six Jaws On the Floor - You Me at Six
426 Keep Awake - 100 Monkeys
427 The End - Paul McCartney (The Beatles)

ONLY ONE LINE in this song: "... And in the end the love you take is equal to THE LOVE YOU MAKE"! Simple... OR IS IT? - frank

428 Telephone Line - Electric Light Orchestra Telephone Line - Electric Light Orchestra
429 The A Team - Ed Sheeran The A Team - Ed Sheeran
430 The Catalyst - Linkin Park The Catalyst - Linkin Park

Sounds creepy.. But it always makes me think of another world that we have after we die.. The lyrics is so deep:
God save us everyone
Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns?
For the sins of our hand?
The sins of our tongue?
The sins of our father?
The sins of our young?

431 Sukiyaki - Kyu Sakamoto Sukiyaki - Kyu Sakamoto

Read the translation... Don't listen to the "English" version (not the same)

432 Empty Garden - Elton John Empty Garden - Elton John

Best tribute song ever. Since John Lennon was his friend, he can rarely perform this live.

433 French Waltz - Art Garfunkel French Waltz - Art Garfunkel V 1 Comment
434 End of the Line - Traveling Wilburys End of the Line - Traveling Wilburys

So much talent in one place together. The video handling of Roy Orbison's death between recording the audio and making the video was masterful. Jeff Lynne sings my favorite line ever from any song in this ("every day is just one day"). Great song for a bad day... Or, a good day!

435 Clayman - In Flames Clayman - In Flames
436 Famous Last Words - My Chemical Romance Famous Last Words - My Chemical Romance

"I am not afraid to keep on living, I am not afraid to walk this world alone."

437 Pendulous Fall - Kamelot

Well written song, usually so difficult to write songs on this topic, but it does it well and it sounds epic to boot.

438 Build God, Then We'll Talk - Panic! at the Disco Build God, Then We'll Talk - Panic! at the Disco

It's such a deep song (and video... ) by Panic! At the Disco! Although it can be interpreted a little differently, it's about being forced to make choices like abandoning your purity to obtain the things you want and stooping to new lows, hence the 'sleeping with roaches'. It's also telling a story about a sleazy lawyer at a motel with someone whoring themselves off for their job, then getting caught and having to pay the consequences (pregnancy). If you haven't hear it, you really should listen! Aside from lyrics, it is also brilliant. that cello solo makes my heart quiver every time! It's not an uplifting song, and it's not about things like politics, love, or friendship, but the story it tells is so moving! It also disproves the meaning behind the song 'my favorite things' for the Sound of Music.

I love this so much. Ryan Ross is an amazing lyricist. - Hai

439 Here, There, and Everywhere - The Beatles
440 You Can't Always Get What You Want - The Rolling Stones

I am shocked and appalled that there are numbers pop fabricated tunes sung by semi talented individuals who got lucky - needless to say are you going ever going to have a craving for 'Never gonna be Alone' by Nickleback? Yea I think not.
