Songs With The Best Lyrics


The Contenders: Page 9XW

161I Am the Walrus - The Beatles

The line sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the bus to come, makes me get the goosebumbs

"elementary penguins singing hare krishna"

This is just nonsesne. if you want good songwriting, see strawberry flieds forever - RecklessGreed

162We've Had Enough - Michael Jackson
163Putham Puthu - K.S. Chithra
164Dream On - Aerosmith
165Fighter - Christina Aguilera

Love the lyrics. Don't hate, have no want for revenge. Be grafeful for everything that made you who you are today.

166I Can - Nas

this songs has great lyrics, Nas has won numerous awards of best story teller, and I learnt some new things form a few of the verses - Shazzy_B

167Hoodoo - Muse
168When All Is Said and Done - ABBA
169Alive - Pearl Jam

Eddie Vedder has the knack of choosing songs with wonderful lyrics, which are not only beautiful in themselves but have such a heartfelt and moving truth within them. Everybody wants to be loved, that is so true; for those who have low self-esteem these lyrics are a huge encouragement to carry on, no matter how difficult life is

The story of this song is really deep

170Forever and Always - Bullet for My Valentine

reminds me of my last relationship.. - cahum

171It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding) - Bob Dylan

Definitely belongs here. The lyrics are very poetical and contains some very famous quotes like "he who is not busy being born is busy dying. " and "Sometime even the president of the United States has to stand naked. ". This is more than just a song. It is a piece of history.

Draws with Desolation Row as the two best lyrical songs I have ever heard. The cynical nature of this work is stunning, and in my opinion it is Dylan's best song. Not just the lyrics, but the way they are sung, make this song truly amazing.

I agree when I think of a song all about lyrics this is the one dylan him self said he could never write a song like this again. it came from thin air and wrote it self.

Endless amounts of timeless quotes, arguably, the best song ever written.

175Clean - Taylor Swift

No don't want to listen and not going to. I've got better things to listen to. You won't find me listening that's for sure so don't tell me to listen. Stop shoving!

176Embryo - Dir en Grey

"so, a summer morning in 1983 my beloved mother always by my side
Hey, smile at me just like you always do in the sunlit morning your expression distorted

Mother's neck is choked as she hangs down from the heavens bye bye, mother
With silent tears and deep pain the flower, unable to bear it, is dying I am alone" - Taloper

Very good lyrics although Disturbing and twisted. To find the best translation I would look up Perix's Channel. I know this may seem like spam but well they are the most accurate.

177Welcome to My Life - Simple Plan

Simple plan's lyrics deserve to be higher on this list, songs like Save You, Perfect, and Astronaut have the best lyrics in my opinion

178Fade to Black - Metallica
179Angel - Sarah McLachlan

Wrong to keep one of the best lyricist, Sarah, so low on this list. I just lost hope here

180Bullet With Butterfly Wings - Smashing Pumpkins

Great lyrics, and great guitar line. It was one of the greatest songs of the nineties played by one of the most influential bands of the past decade.
"Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage! "

Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
