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.

153Thunder Road - Bruce Springsteen

How is this not number one, well maybe jungleland tells an amazing story as well, but Bruce is hands down the artist with the most soul. When you hear his music you know exactly where he's coming from. Rising up from the streets of New Jersey the all-time greatest songwriter ever!

What an amazing song but I think bruce has a lot of songs that should be on this list this is a example so is backstreets or born to run

This was our unofficial theme song in high school. Sheer poetry.

155Come In With The Rain - Taylor Swift

Yeah, right... best lyricist ever. Much greater than Layne Staley, Kurt Cobain or Zack dela Rocha...

Boring! No different heard it before, sorry

156The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel

Hello darkness, my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
'Neath the halo of a street lamp,
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence.

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking,
People hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence.

Fools, said I, You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you.
Take my arms that I might reach you.
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of ...more

Seriously. 162. Paul Simon is one of the best songwriters of all time. And this is one of his best works. The lyrics are so deep. Even the title makes you think. This is a song everyone should know and respect.

Below Taylor Swift and Madonna? That makes me sad. - PetSounds

It's really something completely different

157Come As You Are - Nirvana

This is below Taylor Swift?! what the hell is wrong with these people?

You will know this song is cool and awesome once you listen to this.

Shame on people for preferring LiLo to this. Music is dead.

158The End - The Doors

Very sad song about war and other things like that. Believe me, it's the last day of school today, and I sang this... I got home and cried.

The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots on
He took a face from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall
He went into the room where his sister lived, and... Then he
Paid a visit to his brother, and then he
He walked on down the hall, and
And he came to a door... And he looked inside
Father, yes son, I want to kill you
Mother... I want to... WAA

159Drops of Jupiter - Train

A not really straight to the point lyrics. up to you who to relate it to. Very well made.
