The Top Ten

Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
Should be WAY higher. One of the greatest songs of the 20th and 21st Centuries. VERY beautiful too.
The fact that this masterpiece is FIFTEEN spots under Unholy ' Confessions makes me want to throw up.
Sould be on top. The most beautiful rock song. Is far above any other rock song and its sung by Freddie, here is his soul, his pain, his questions and his doubts. And above all. It's his unmatched voice.
[Newest]Man are you biased.

2Love of My Life - Queen
Brings tears to my eyes evertime I hear Freddie Mercury sing this... so heartfelt and beautiful.
Simply amazing, especially live versions.
So beautiful, I've never heard such an emotional love song in my life before, oh and by the way, why isn't king crimon's "Moonchild" #1 on this list? Its the symbol of beautiful!

3Alone - Heart
A perfect song, given life by a perfect voice.


This is the number song - LOL

4Somebody to Love - Queen

5Save Me - Queen
Does anyone here like Queen? 😖


6Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
Simply the best rock and roll song of all times! Most requested song in radio history. One of the most amazing guitar solos in history. Sexy vocals and a dynamite package.
Its live at new york is too unbelievable to be called a song. Period
Very, very beautiful. For most of the song, it's calm and actually kind of sad.


7We Will Rock You - Queen

8Another One Bites the Dust - Queen

9Teo Torriatte (Let Us All Cling Together) - Queen
most beautiful song Queen ever wrote period exclamation point the end.!


10Open Arms - Journey
Steve Perry captures the feeling of lonliness, and conveys the emotion well.

The Contenders

11You Are Not Alone - Michael Jackson
The most beautiful song ever... Micheal sings it with such emotion and love in his heart. He is so into it... love you MJ xo

12Voodoo Chile - Jimi Hendrix

13November Rain - Guns N' Roses
This GnR song is awesome! It has so much power, passion, and technique. Its such a beautiful song! Every time I listen to this song, I can't help but smile.. :) And Im only like 12 years old. :D Best GnR song. m/


not one of the best ever, THE best ever... from the piano solo to the guitar solo, we are blessed to have this song!!!
the song and the video is perfect. it suits each other


[Newest]It's hard to hold a candle in the cold November rain

14Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day
it has 2 meanings... both of them love and lost! billie joe is talking about his father being dying which was a heartbreaking thing for him, and the video which is about the army. I love it because of the 2 meanings of the song.. it is the most beautiful song ever... <3!
Man oh man what a song. Just wanna know where is time of your life and hare to concentrate by the peppers
I love this song. I cry everytime when I hear this music.

15Nothing Else Matters - Metallica
What the hell?! This song should easily be way higher on this list! I think this should be at the top 20.


Why isn't this in top ten?

16Time After Time - Cyndi Lauper
Though I think Heart's "Alone" should be close to the number one spot... "Time After Time"... Is honestly a breathtaking tune & probably one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. It envokes such strong emotion & it's one of those songs that future artist should never attempt to cover. Such a timeless classic. And this is coming from a 24 year old guy laugh out loud


Cindy Lauper is really good. "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" is a perfect song to dance to and "Time After Time" is a song to dream to.

17Little Wing - Jimi Hendrix
Great song writing from the most innovative guitarist ever.
Never really was much of a fan of jimi hendrix, but this song was great.


I love little wing

18The Kill - 30 Seconds to Mars
If you truly listen to this song and hear and understand the lyrics, then you can feel the desperation of the meanig and it brought tears to my eyes more than once.
It is an amazing song.

19Every Breath You Take - The Police
Beautiful song and extremely sinister


IMHO - should be # 1!!! Yeah! Delicious!


20No-One But You (Only the Good Die Young) - Queen
