244Hail Mary - 2Pac
245All These Things That I've Done - The Killers

248Man in the Mirror - Michael Jackson

This is one of his most heart felt songs. The words are so true. Of all of Michael's songs this one and "We are the World" are the most heart tugging songs. Michael Jackson will always be the greatest singer on the planet!

I am honestly shocked that this song is so low on the list. It's lyrics and melody are equally beautiful, and it has such a powerful message. One of Michael's many masterpieces.

The king of pop rules love you Michael jackson the song is so cool vote so it goes higher

I'm shocked too!

249Shine On You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd

An absolutely hectic song hailing Pink Floyd original head member, Syd Barrett, who mentally went sick and had to be taken away. The entire song, at 20-something minutes, is numbing, whimsical, an horrifying. As if Van Gogh was putting Starry Starry Night into words.

This comment is one of the best thing, I have came across on internet today.

Best song from Pink Floyd. Then whish you were here, dogs, etc. Best song of all time. Richard Wrights dreaming synth. Sound, David Gilmour fantastic guitar layers. Instrumental first 8 minutes is a highlight in modern music. The first 3 minutes is like awaking in the dessert. The last beautiful section...This song of almost half an hour has iT all. Must Be at number 1, then maybe stairway to heaven. This song is heaven on itself. Not just the stairway to iT. And for someone (syd barret) who already is in heaven. Hè listens to iT and is overwhelmed with pride, I'm sure.

A true masterpiece. Deserves a place in the top 20 at least. The entire band gave it their all. Especially David Gilmour.

This is the best musical achievement in centuries. - RalphSaad

250Smoke On the Water - Deep Purple

93rd? This is a joke, isn't it?! The whole genre of rock actually revolves around this song... And wats it doing at the 93rd spot?

This is the best song ever written!
Why is it so low on the list. This is bull. I hope more people can realize this!

Epic song just epic. Should definitely be number 1 or 2 no definitely 1. I listen to it like twenty times in a row before it us inspiring shizz dude.

One of the greatest intros of all time at number 275 this list is all wrong

252Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler

Bonnie Tyler cuts to the heart with a precise depiction of impossible love and an eerie feeling of hopelessness in her voice that shatters the soul.

it draws you in and then takes you on a roller coaster for the rest of the song. perfect song.

This song is a classic and deserves a much higher spot on the list.

So old, and yet so relevant.

253It's Sad to Belong - England Dan & John Ford Coley
254One - U2

Very emotional song, U2 will be my favourite band for a long, long time. Rock on!

One is a truly amazing song - especially in pre-Vertigo Tour live performances with the 'You Hear Us/Me Coming' verse.

Such a beautiful song... it talks about the pain and everything that can matter a person. It's simply touching, so touching that it makes me feel sad even hearing it everyday.

Best song of all time

255Everlong - The Foo Fighters

This Song is my favourite song ever made. It is just beautiful! I listen to a ton of bands ranging from punk to light rock to deathcore and I really have no favourite band but without a doubt this song is my favourite. It's just so good and so well put together. It really makes you stop to think about all the good things in your life and give you the courage to live through every day. This being below Party Rock Anthem makes me want to shoot myself with a gun by the way lol.

Fantastic, Powerful, Consuming. This song Is a milestone by the Foo Fighters by far, and is super addictive. Yet the meaning is still so simple (Love) and is summarized in the first line "Hello, I've waited here for you, Everlong"

Everlong is definitely the most beautiful song for me. So passionate, so perfect. Dave Grohl actually made a perfect song I think. If you ever checked out Everlong live at wembley, everyone will fall in love with that song.

Best Foo Fighters song...Should be way higher on the list.

256Creep - Radiohead

THIS IS UNREAL, HOW IT COULD BE? :O RADIOHEAD ON 148TH PLACE AND ENRIQUE IGLESIAS ON 146TH? OH MY GOD, THIS IS THE BEST SONG I'VE HEARD EVER, ARE YOU CRAZY?

This song will never bore you and when you sing it, you will fell release. The tune is rightly expression of the lyrics. It deserves to be on top of the list. It is a rare piece.

Love the emotion of the vocal and the lyric, it is really rare to find song like this. Sadly undervalued in this chart.

Best Radiohead Song.

259Firework - Katy Perry

Firework is the most successful song to give inspirations to people. This song is familiar with the song, Beautiful by Christina Aguilera. It tells about just perform and do your own way, no matter how. Don't care about what they say 'cause it doesn't matter.

An inspirational song from a worldwide famously known funny singer, A song encouraging the disabled to realize the importance of their life by putting themselves in the best glow of their life like a Firework.

It's beautiful and meaningful song inspiring people that everybody are special

Best song next to 'Roar! ' Hats off to Katy Perry!
