Best Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 10

181 Hurricane - Bob Dylan Hurricane - Bob Dylan

This song was done for Rubin "Hurricane" Carter and it's so powerful. You can feel the injustice and the fight of afro descendents American's for civil rights and still one of the best song of Bob Dylan with Like a Rolling Stone and Blowing in the Wind.

The best song ever! It is the classic song of American justice.

Gotta be said, yeah. It's Bob Dylan.

184 1979 - Smashing Pumpkins 1979 - Smashing Pumpkins

Immortal song. Not like all of the crappy songs up there you listen 3 times and switch to something else.

I am in utter disbelief that this is not in the top 100. This song is haunting and amazing. Gangnam Style is ahead of this... By a lot... That should tell you a lot bout people these days.

Great song! Is every losing their minds? 223,not except-able!

185 Rap God - Eminem Rap God - Eminem

How is this not higher up? Its built on pure talent

Another Eminem Track Hit The Charts And this time its Rap God one of the most Downloaded songs Ever with Eminems HiGh Speed Rap

I love this song. It's lyrical genius. Put this up against Jay-Z or Kanye West, it's not only the speed (I memorized it, it's at aprox. 4:25) but how it isn't the same lyrics repeated in every line. *cough* Nikki Minaj stupid ho *cough* *cough*

186 The Memory Remains - Metallica The Memory Remains - Metallica V 1 Comment
187 The Sounds of Silence - Simon and Garfunkel The Sounds of Silence - Simon and Garfunkel

Beautiful song that stands the test of time - JooJoo

Hypnotic and relaxing. Their music takes mi to another world. Also love Scarborough Fair.

Classic in every sense of the word...
Total masterpiece of all-times!
Should be number 1!

I like the Disturbed version the best.

188 While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles

This song is the best, it rocks. Just like everything the Beatles did. To see it so far below in this list makes me sad, people vote for that is gonna be forgotten a week or so from now. The Beatles are eternal, there are other great things too, but specially them. Something, Hey Jude, Yesterday, Hard Day's Night, I could have voted for any of them. But to see this so far below, it pains me. - Coolfighter

It deserves to be much higher on this list.
It has a feel which other songs lack.
I have no idea what it is doing languishing at the bottom of this list.

This is so low but why everything about it is great unlike those stupid songs you have voted for like taylor swift! The Beatles are the best band ever and that will never change! - TheThomasThomas

Eric Clapton plays lead guitar on this song...Kick Ass!

I love this song

190 Crawling - Linkin Park Crawling - Linkin Park

The most emotive, hard hitting screamer! Deserves a place as a representative of it's genre!

This is one of the best songs from Linkin Park I also love Lying from you and Faint

Linkin Park is the best rock band of our generation, but come on there r many other songs for them better than this one and should be put onto the list, like : faint and papercut and new divide. Crawling is a good song, but not the best they made, but it's a cool song any way!

I love the whole album hybrid theory!

191 Nights in White Satin - Moody Blues Nights in White Satin - Moody Blues

"if your over 35"? I'm 14 and I know and love this song. - alucard

One of the best songs ever for soothing the pain of unrequited love

If you're over the age of 35, shame on you if you don't know the words to this one!

Now how in over 300 Best of the Best songs, No one posted this one? But every one here Knows it! Right?

194 When the Music's Over - The Doors When the Music's Over - The Doors

My favorite doors song of all tome. I want to hear the scream of a butterfly. I want it NOW

A classic song from the doors. Should be up a bit higher. - matty925

195 The Veldt - Deadmau5 The Veldt - Deadmau5

The fact that this was based on a James Thurber makes this one a true piece of art. And that's saying a lot considering this is an EDM song.
