Songs With The Best Lyrics

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Dust In the Wind - Kansas Dust 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"

122 Into You - Dead By Sunrise Into You - Dead By Sunrise

I love this great one

123 In the Darkest Place - Elvis Costello In the Darkest Place - Elvis Costello
124 Muffin Man - Frank Zappa Muffin Man - Frank Zappa
125 Subterranean Homesick Alien - Radiohead Subterranean Homesick Alien - Radiohead

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

126 Sleeping Sun - Nightwish Sleeping Sun - Nightwish

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

127 I Just Wasn't Made For These Times - The Beach Boys I Just Wasn't Made For These Times - The Beach Boys
128 Enjoy the Silence - Depeche Mode
129 Blank Space - Taylor Swift Blank Space - Taylor Swift

I'm disappointed by the ranking of Blank Space... It should be in the Top Ten! The lyrics are so awesome that I have no words to express how good it is... Where are the Swifties?!

Blank Space cause it won in the category "Best Lyrics" at the iheart radio awards in 2015

130 Heroin - The Velvet Underground Heroin - The Velvet Underground
131 Mr. Tambourine Man - Bob Dylan Mr. 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

132 Rumors - Lindsay Lohan Rumors - Lindsay Lohan
133 Nemo - Nightwish Nemo - Nightwish

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

134 Better Man - Pearl Jam Better Man - Pearl Jam V 1 Comment
135 Small Bump - Ed Sheeran Small Bump - Ed Sheeran
136 The Thunder Rolls - Garth Brooks The Thunder Rolls - Garth Brooks
137 Bless the Child - Nightwish Bless the Child - Nightwish

Bless the Child is like a cure for sickness. You become happy and sad at the same time, but it makes you feel better all the same.

138 Unforgivable Youth - Lupe Fiasco Unforgivable Youth - Lupe Fiasco
139 Keep Ya Head Up - 2Pac Keep Ya Head Up - 2Pac
