41Do You Hear Me - AdemaV1 Comment
42Duncan Hills Coffee Jingle - Dethklok

One of my favourite songs, really deep meaningfull lyrics. Everyone should give it a listen.

43Tears In Heaven - Eric Clapton

You have to be crazy not to pick this one. Clapton wrote some of the most meaningful lyrics as a memorial to the tragic death of his four year old son.

44Cousin Kevin - The Who

"Do you know how to play hide and seek?
To find me it would take you a week.
But tied to that chair, you won't go anywhere.
There's a lot I can do with a freak..." - MontyPython

45Shelter From the Storm - Bob Dylan
46Cast No Shadow - OasisV1 Comment
47Tomorrow Never Knows - The Beatles

Beatles at their creative best.

48Speculum - Adema

I haven't heard this song from Adema yet I've heard many from them, but the lyrics are phenomenally written, I can feel the pain in every word the sadness in every line it quite honestly should be much farther up on this list.

49Iris - Goo Goo Dolls

And I'd give up forever to touch you. Cause I know that you feel me somehow. You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be and I don't wanna go home right now.

All I can taste is this moment. And all I can breathe is your life. Sooner or later it's over. I just don't wanna miss you tonight.

And I don't want the world to see me, cause I don't think that they'd understand. When everything's made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am.

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming, or the moment of truth in your life. When everything feels like the movies, yeah you bleed just to know you're alive.

And I don't want the world to see me, cause I don't think that they'd understand. When everything's made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am.

I just want you to know who I am...

Love this song, such an underrated song! One of the best songs I have ever heard. Brilliant vocals and lyrics. Also very catchy. Should be in the top 10 definitely. Amazing.

Truly one of the most underrated songs ever. As much appreciation as this song gets, it's not nearly enough. The lyrics are brilliant!

Why is this song at 39, such wonderful lyrics.

51A Little Bit of Everything - Dawes
52There Is A Light That Never Goes Out - The Smiths

Amazing song. Never get sick of listening to it. So many good memories of this song!

53When I'm Gone - Eminem

I don't listen to much rap or hip hop but I will say this : Eminem is a phenomenal song writer as well as lyricist, he can make or break careers just by mentioning names in a song, he speaks his mind and actually writes his tunes unlike a lot of so called artist, he raps with the best, performs with the best and quite honestly writes with the best unlike most he can perform every one of his songs live, like it or not you cannot deny that Eminem is a great artist all around.

Anyone who thinks otherwise obviously has no place in music let alone posting about it online. If you can write a song half as good as this guy can id love to hear it.

Oh man what a song who writes such lyrics just amazing song written and song by the best rapper ever Eminem just give it a try and bet you'll forget the lyrics of it wonderful emotion shown in the lyrics by Eminem

I don't listen to many songs that's not rock or metal but I will say this : Eminem is a very very talented lyricist and song writer, you can tell he poured his heart and soul into this song, if this man mentions you negitivatily in one of his songs your careers over, or if he praises you you have an entire fan base army at your disposal, his songs can make or break you, he can rap with the best, perform with the best and quite honestly write with the best he speaks what's on his mind like it or love it you can't deny what's on the paper here all around great artist.

Anyone who thinks otherwise has no place in music let alone posting about it period. I am a metal head through and through but unlike most I will NOT deny a good artist respect when I see one...or in this case hear one.

Best song ever

56Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley

Well actually the song is from Leonard Cohen, not Jeff Buckley.

It describes a ton of different stories in a single short song. Beautiful lyrics

Cough I think you mean Leonard Cohen.

Way more beautiful than Leonard Cohen's version!

This song is so amazing! My favorite Beyonce' song ever. It has so much power and the words are beautiful! I just love it! Should be further up!

Beautiful song... If you ever have built walls to protect yourself and later have it broken down by someone... Well this is your anthem!

Very touching, reaches some kind of divine stratosphere in my soul. Powerful enigmatic!
