121 Drops of Jupiter - Train Drops 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

122 What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong What 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?

123 Estranged - Guns N' Roses Estranged - Guns N' Roses

One of the most underrated songs of all time. Should be in top 10 in my mind.

Love this song, any song that last more than 8 minutes and still get you is a master piece

Hands down, one of the rarest masterpiece

124 Hall of Fame - The Script Hall of Fame - The Script

This song makes me motivated, give out the energy deep in me unlike any other song. It should be at least top 30, this place is not suitable for a song that lifts you up the way it does.

"Standing in the hall of fame! And the world's gonna know your name... Cause you burn with the brightest flame! " this song is fantastic, it EMPOWERS you..

This is a song that tells you that anyone can make it to the top if they try. And it sends out a message that everyone is a champion. There is no first or last there is just you and your talent

This song's good its like a song you would listen to when you're running

125 California Dreamin' - The Mamas & The Papas California Dreamin' - The Mamas & The Papas

I can't believe this song isn't on here. The song is #89 in Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, and it's been covered by every artist imaginable.

It's my favorite song of all time because I love California, the timeless, soul-warming melody that is both sad and hopeful and makes me tear up every time I hear it.

I would've thought the beach boys version would be on here but this is a great song

Just Love the Mommas and the Poppas

Good Song by the Mamma and the Papas!

126 Moment of Surrender - U2 Moment of Surrender - U2
127 Blackbird - Alter Bridge Blackbird - Alter Bridge

Now, I've only listened to about 2 or 3 of these guy's songs but Blackbird... holy cow! The acoustic riff at the very start DEFINES the song's mellow background and Kennedy's voice is stunning and it's not what you would expect out of a rock (well... alt. Rock) band. The drumming is great and the guitar solo... It's pretty self-explanatory. First it start off with what I think is Kennedy's solo and then when you reach Tremonti's you will get mind-blown with his skills. They are AMAZING. Just listen to 30 seconds of anywhere in the song and you will see why I voted this song.

Alter Bridge is the best band of 2000's, Myles is the best songwriter I have ever seen, Mark is the only man to make a stand against Slash, Brian is a secret weapon and Scott is new Bonzo. Those guys are awesome. For me every song of them is great. I voted this song because it's an AB song. Needles to say... I'm proud of being a member and occasionally cyber soldier of AB Nation.

I can not explain that how the song is great.. You just need to listen it.. Its solo part after 4. Mins you can't imagine.. It's best I have ever heard before.. Just listen the song before you vote.. Thank you

If Metallica can make the top 10, so can this one

128 Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve

Just absolutely fantastic, incredible lyrics, uplifting mood, fits into so many situations, just fantastic

Oh My God. HOW is this song all the way down here?! It's one of my favourite songs, I just can't stop listening. I have no idea why this list is so crappy. WHERE is the Paramore?! Is it even possible not to like it?! Also, Smells Like Teen Spirit should totally be no.3, after Bittersweet Symphony and Misery Business. So a word of warning to the creator of this list: Change it or I will bite you. HARD.

One of best lyrics EVER! it's too emotional and realistic, really that song has to be in top ten =S!

Good song to listen anytime/anywhere.

129 Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO

I don't want to live on this planet anymore

This is not one of the best songs of all time, it's ok compared to other modern mainstream music. In other words it sucks. Anyone who voted this song does not appreciate good music. - Songsta41

The fact that this is above Carry On Wayward Son makes me panic for the future of humanity.

Do not listen to LMFAO, listen to better music like Led Zeppelin or Iron Maiden

131 House of the Rising Sun - The Animals House of the Rising Sun - The Animals

A great song that deserves to be on this list, and is better than half the other songs on it. One of my favorite songs that sends a shiver down my spine every time I listen to it.

hendrix did an awesome cover on this song. its great an instramental, but you can kind of feel the tone and feeling of this great song

Classic . . . epic . . . great guitar . . . I LOVE IT! Higher up, please.

Great storytelling lyrics, groovy organ, and intense vocals. If you think this sounds good now, imagine how it must have sounded back in 1964!

132 Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles

Well, the Beatles at number 3. Some of you hardcore Beatles fans might be furious at me for not putting "A Day in the Life" or "Let It Be" at number 1. Again, it's my opinion. Anyways, amazing message that is sent out in this song. This was one of the greatest Beatles songs ever made undoubtedly. The violins bring anticipation when they gradually get louder, and the vocals from the band when they sing the chorus bring delight to my ears. Truly a masterpiece.

Wait a second... This song was once NUMBER 3 on this list? It's been voted down to below PARTY ROCK ANTHEM to 117? How can this be? Is this what the world is coming to? - VaticanCameos

I've always loved the Beatles, and I'm twelve. Almost thirteen. and Eleanor Rigby is one of my favorites. It's beat is so cool.

As people said the Beatles are just above any competition or silly list. Too many of their songs can be on this lst.

Greatest song of the world. Simply.

135 1985 - Bowling for Soup 1985 - Bowling for Soup

This song was my favorite song when I was young. Brings back so many memories and I still know all the lyrics

Love this song! Lyrics are cool and the vocals are phenomenal. I love how it pretty much sums of music in 1985.

138 Piano Man - Billy Joel Piano Man - Billy Joel

My favorite song, cheerful and comforting!

It's impossible to get rid of this song once it has entered your mind, and it's impossible to get bored! Go Billy Joel! And go Piano Man! (Hey man what are you doing here? )
Lalala lalala ;)

This is the greatest song of all time it has been my favourite song ever since I could remember it captured the hearts of millions this is the best song of all time!

I heard it last weak on the radio, and I loved it from the first second till the last second, I'm listening it the whole day now!

What all of billy Joel's songs should be in top 50 he is a lyrical genius and has an amazing voice to this day, how could Eminem make it to the top 20 and not billy Joel? What the hell?

139 Analogue - A-ha

Analougue, unique, inspiring, perfect beats and guitar, a passionate rock, which you enter you know, makes you travel to another world! - Madeleine

A song which definitely wakes you up! Great song and proof that A-ha is still not a has-been... - Daisymorot

My preferred A-Ha album. Even if they decided afterwards to come back to more electronic, before splitting, they achieved a great performance in acoustic. Just listen to it!

U2 has with or without you, A-Ha has Analogue - amazing guitar riff

140 It's All Coming Back to Me Now - Celine Dion It's All Coming Back to Me Now - Celine Dion

This is my favorite song of all time. And no one can deny the fact that when this song was released, you actually thought or have said, this song is really great. - RLAAMJR

Spirit song, the words really mean. Everything was right back to ourselves... You who determines your path, your destiny, not fate determine our lives

This song is still one of the best love songs of all time and should be in the top ten best songs in history

That's a wonderful song. Nothing can disclaim that.
