Songs With The Best Lyrics


The Contenders: Page 7XW

121Always - Bon Jovi

I cried when I heard it the first time. I cried when I saw a video of them preforming it live - original and acoustic. Jon is singing it with so much emotion and David's keyboards have a special tone in this one... The rest of the band is also doing a great job on this one but the lyrics, the lyrics are so powerful... and I will love you - always.

I'll be there till the star no shine, till the heaven burst and the words no rhyme, I know when I die you will live on my mind and I love you always

122You Found Me - The Fray

I love the fray, I would describe them as an American coldplay which raises the question, where is "fix you" (by coldplay)? I do disgree with "you found me" being up here this high when their best song by far "howto save a life" is nowhere to be seen!

123Arrab Kaman - Tamer Hosny
124Life on Mars? - David BowieV1 Comment
125Mr. Tambourine Man - Bob Dylan

MJ is overrated, he was entertaining but come on really you think those are the best lyrics. Bob Dylan's Blowin in the wind is the most amazing song but if I would have voted for that you would never see the comment because your taste in music is so bad you think MJ's lyrics are number one

Their is no way in hell why Bob Dylan should be fourth in this list, bob dylan might have sucked at singing but he is one of the greatest song writers of all time, wait let me rephrase that, he is the greatest song writer of all time, and for all you Jimi Hendrix fans that like him just because he's overrated and number one guitarist on every web site, he used a couple of bob dylans songs because compared to bob dylan Jimi Hendrix sucked - tssumner

Though I know that evening's empire has returned into sand
Vanished from my hand
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping

My weariness amazes me, I am branded on my feet
I have no one to meet
And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming

This should be number 1!

Bob dylan should not only have one song on this list

126Rumors - Lindsay Lohan
127Kashmir - Led Zeppelin
128Subterranean Homesick Alien - Radiohead

Thom Yorke is the best lyricist since John Lennon, no question.

129I Just Wasn't Made For These Times - The Beach Boys
130Enjoy the Silence - Depeche Mode
131Irreplaceable - Beyonce
132Dust In the Wind - Kansas

Best lyrics. Really deep about life. This should be at least at the top 5
"All we are is dust in the wind"

133Into You - Dead By Sunrise

I love this great one

134In the Darkest Place - Elvis Costello
135Muffin Man - Frank Zappa
136Heroin - The Velvet Underground
137Killing In the Name - Rage Against the Machine

Woah, wait a second. Are people actually putting Rick Astley, Taylor Swift and Lindsay Lohan before RATM? Go ahead, please remind me of the lyrical brilliance and true meaning behind these other songs, I'm listening.

138Nemo - Nightwish

Amazing song in both music and lyrics. Beautiful. Couldn't live without Nemo. Or Nightwish for that matter.

139The Thunder Rolls - Garth Brooks
140Sleeping Sun - Nightwish

I love Sleeping Sun. Not the best Nightwish song music-wise but lyric-wise this is amazing.
