Awesome song! It makes me smile just when I listen to it:) I love Michael Jackson's music a lot and I listen to this song almost everyday! All of his songs should be the best and other Singers whose songs are on this list should be honored to be on the same list as MJ's songs

5Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses
this song is so fun and it makes you want to get up and dance


This song reminds me of my boyfriend of 9 months almost. This is the first song he played me on his electric guitar. He went away to Utah for like 3 months and I didn't have any contact with him. And every time I heard this song I thought of him. Then in November of last year he came back without warning. I love him so much can't even fathom being away from him anymore
catchy song, and if i hear my favorite song in the radio, tv or in other's mobile gadgets, it make me smile

22Ombra Mai Fu - Jackie Evancho
Not only does Jackie totally "kill" this song, but she sings so many others so well, that you cannot help but shed tears for the sheer beauty of her rendition. She has the most gloriously pure voice I have ever heard. Jackie is absolutely amazing - especially when you are sitting less than 4 feet away from her while she sings -! It is as if you just walked through Saint Peter's gates... And too, Jackie really is as beautiful as any angel you may imagine. Truly, she is well on her way to "drop-dead gorgeous." Gonna be many a young lad with a broken heart, crying for Jackie.
Some people just don't see what the fuss is about.
That's a matter of taste and expectation.
But an increasing number are discovering what a truly beautiful voice sounds like. Once you get it there is no turning back.
Listening to Jackie immerse herself into this opening aria from Handel's 1738 opera "Serse" (the character singing about his/her wonder over a magnificent tree) makes me take a breath and smile every time. Thank-you, Jackie.
