81Don't Stop Me Now - Queen

This one is one of my favorite songs (my favorite songs are written only by Queen). It is so beautiful and whenever I hear it, I'm full of joy and ECSTASY! I'm sure that most people know it and the first time I've heard it, it was in the radio but I didn't know who played it and then I was like 4 or 5 but I started to like it 7 years after I heard it in the radio that is 8 months ago. I love this osng, I is beautiful!

Should be in the top 100. This song makes someone feel really good and happy. Just feeling free. Not to mention that Freddie's vocals make this song seem driving and happy and easy.

Wow damn good song man you should hear it!

Foxes did an amazing cover of this for Doctor Who. - CatnissNevergreen

82Don't Look Back In Anger - Oasis

One of the greatest for sure without a doubt. Can't believe that songs from MJ are topping songs from this band, such as this one.

Very few artists could pull off sampling Imagine, but Oasis does it as well as anyone ever could.

Beats wonderwall for me. Great song

The best song ever written
This is the song of my life

83Mr. Brightside - Killers

i don't know why i love this song so much but everytime it comes on i can't help but sing along and dance around!

Finally, a Killers song! I love this band and this song; I just can't help but sing along! (I just voted and it went from 150 something to 38, wow! )

This is simply the best song I've ever heard. - megafillan

Probably one of the best modern songs no doubt. I personally prefer When You Were Young.

84Viva la Vida - Coldplay

Fantastic song from a fantastic album from a fantastic band! I can't understand why so many horrible songs are so high, especially several that I've never heard of. Viva La Vida is the most incredible thing I've ever heard, I liked it before I'd even heard of Coldplay. - MatrixGuy

Awesome song! Makes you feel like your king. Deserves to be at least in the top 50!

Coldplay's greatest song, everybody knows it and Coldplay is a great amazing band that deserves to have its best song on the best songs of all times list!

Should be lower

85Drops of Jupiter - Train

I'm actually listening to this right now, it never gets old, && the lyrics are awesome!

This song a modern classic. Undoubtedly the best song of the 00s. This song kind of defined slow rock. - superjason

The way train may have written the lyrics may be different to the way people think about them today and many people think different things about what the lyrics mean and can connect with them.

Doesn't deserve here. 5/10

87When I'm Gone - Eminem

One of the BEST Eminems songs and one Of the best songs EVER! Should be at top 20 at least! Anyone disagrees?

Great song. tells a great story. Eminem is phenomenal

I guess this is the MOST inspirational, emotional and touching song by Eminem!
Deserves to be at least top 50...

This is one of the most touching Eminem songs ever

88We Will Rock You - Queen

Should be in top 20 at least! Recreates the spirit of humanity and is the perfect example of a SONG that unites HUMANITY...!

The Chorus part Is Very Good... Many Of Them Know This Song Without Knowing About The Legendary Band Queen... - saihemanth

This song brings out your inner tiger. Very uplifting in the soul and I know all the lyrics to this song, maybe all the lyrics. Here we go. " you got mud on your face, A big disgrace, spread it on the ground all over the place, saying we will, we will rock you, we will, we will rock you down pick you up, like a volcano about to irupt, rock'in all day an night, ride'in the alto ride, " and on and on. GO QUEEN. You ROCK!

Its all right but it's the same as we are the champions moans the same thing over and over

89Fireflies - Owl City

One of the few songs not about violence, drugs, and sex. It instead, focuses on the artists struggle, Adam Young, with insomnia.

This song has better lyrics then most songs on this list and has one of the better beat

This should be #1, and the rest of the list should all be Owl City songs

Owl city is so positive.

90What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

With out doubt one of the greatest songs ever play this song aloud while sitting on your porch and you will see why this song is so awesome Louis Armstrong and this song deserve to be carried on from generation to generation. I was shocked when I saw this song wasn't even in the top 200 it deserves to be in at least the top 50

This is probably the most classic song there is. How is it not one of the best songs in the world? This song has so much meaning to it, it's beautiful, and it links us back to a long time ago, when it was written and performed. This shouldn't just not be on the list.

With it's dated sound and curious vocals I must say that this song gives the world hope. Every Child should hear this in their musical development as a lot of today's music is overproduced noise that is focused on image and not substance.

Top ten - twenty. What is going on here?

91Blank Space - Taylor Swift

Children should not be posting on this list. Now go to bed! And children you will know of "All Time" when you are much, much older. The list is for all time and what would you know of that in the first place to be honest. It's the truth! Don't disrespect artists that have truly earned this list. Have you ever listened to some long time artists that deserve to be on this list? Artists that have at least been around for several decades. Be respectful!

I put this song at #2 on my remix. I'm a 16 year old boy and I have heard many old songs. I have actually heard evert song in the list's top 20 but I still find this song superior. That's my opinion and if you have a problem with me expressing it and helping vote it up the list then that is your problem, not mine and I don't have to silence myself because you don't like the song. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

Boo! I hate this song with burning passion. All it talks about is Taylor's rich life bragging how she can hypnotize boys and how rich she is. This song has no meaning, one of the worst songs ever. This does not deserve to be on the list. Listen to good music like the beattles, Michael Jackson, or many more classics.

Taylor swift is painful to listen to

Okay, maybe this doesn't deserve being in the top 100, but it's good! It's sufficient, self-aware, a quality song. It's about her embracing how everyone calls her psychotic because of 6 SONGS. - WonkeyDude98

92Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day

THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! A TOP TEN SONG IS SITTING AT #103! BOULEVARD OF BROKEN DREAMS, IN THE END (by Linkin Park), and Enter Sandman (by Metallica) deserve higher spots!

Probably not better than wonderwall... But I don't think it deserves to be below in the end.

Why is this 76? This song gives me chills every time I listen to it. We can all relate to the lyrics at one point or another in out lives and the tune gets stuck in my head to a daily basis. This song means a lot and I think it deserves a higher spot on the list

This song belong to top 20, just listen this song and you'll understand

93Carry On Wayward Son - Kansas

A classic song, with nothing but perfection. A song of hope, a song of peace, a song of comfort. I would give this song a 10. Great job Kansas.

Are you serious. There is absolutely no way there are 214 better songs that this classic. I won't say the top, because of other genres and other classics, but at least top 20. So much better than anything done by Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Black Sabbath, etc. - esaoud

This is one of the greatest and one of my favorite songs of all time. Everybody knows it and loves it. Please, PLEASE vote for this to be higher on the list.

This song is iconic in many different ways. How can you not sing when it comes on?

95Breaking the Habit - Linkin Park

Not even in the top 100, whats the matter with you people, this is the best song ever made by anyone, let alone Linkin Park. - lukestheman4

How can any song be better than this one? It's the greatest song ever.

You should see the Egocity Chap version of this

96Kashmir - Led Zeppelin

Plant's vocals are spectacular and the riff is perfect. If any Led Zep epic deserves to kill the other songs on this list, it is not Stairway to Heaven. It's this. Listen to the lyrics; they're brilliant in this 8 1/2 minute orgasm to the ear.

I agree this song is by far their best. Songs come and go but Kashmir stays with you forever and continues to move you in new ways. This is my number one song of all time.

Awesome, emotional, once it is under your skin it will stay with you for the rest of your life. That is the yardstick here!

The perfect song from the perfect rock band of all time, I listen to this song everyday because Kashmir is very energetic and badass. - malamJONES

98Heart Shaped Box - Nirvana

this one in 528? haven't you heard the intro, the Kurt's voice or the choir? - rock2metal

This song makes me wanna jump out of the bed and start working.

This song should be at least in top 15 not in 102 place. people are so dumb, this song is way better than all the guns n roses songs

99Sing for the Moment - Eminem

I'm not exactly a big fan of Eminem, but he's got a knack for sampling great songs very effectively.

Well I don't mean this should be in top 3, but why is this only 261th? Get this at least top 50 or top 100, please. - Fan_of_Good_Music

Perfect lyrics, love this song so much

Favourite Eminem song ever

100The Show Must Go On - Queen

The last hit of Queen is the best of them

An absolute legend and probably the most powerful and naturally talented singer and performer to ever live, excellent song and so much meaning... Indeed the show must go on

The most powerful vocal performances I ever heard, and the fact that Freddie was dying and struggling whilst recording this beautiful song is outstanding. He still managed to pull off a brilliant performance. The opening rhythm is great, the voice is superb, the lyrics are fantastic and the guitar solos are spot on. How this song is not at the very least in the top 20 baffles me.

Freddie Mercury vocals at his finest, the last song in Queen 1991 Album Innuendo. But why March of the Black Queen not even included in this list? - malamJONES
