The Most Beautiful Songs of the Rock and Roll Era
The Top Ten
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
Was listening to the song and wanted to see it's rightful place on a list of beautiful rock songs. This list serves this truly beautiful poetic song justice. Rock on!
Easily the greatest song of all time.V 5 Comments
Good song. No Orbison on this list makes it silly.
A perfect song, given life by a perfect voice. - jerryw08V 3 Comments
What the hell?! This song should easily be way higher on this list! I think this should be at the top 20. - johnpaularguellesV 2 Comments
The last verse of this song is the most heart breaking and emotional beautiful piece of song I have experienced
Other songs in the list are better, no doubt. What I love most about this piece of music is that Keyboard part towards the end of the song.
One of the most beautiful songs ever written.
Brings tears to my eyes evertime I hear Freddie Mercury sing this... so heartfelt and beautiful.
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!V 2 Comments
Steve Perry captures the feeling of lonliness, and conveys the emotion well.
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
Should be near the top, but won't be since BJH are no doubt unknown to the kind of people who vote in this poll, despite being one of the best bands of all time and very successful all over Europe for the past 47 years.
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/ - rockerchic18
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 - ronluna

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.
Beautiful and very touching song. - Green_DayV 1 Comment
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.
Easily among the best songs of all time, second only to Stairway to Heaven.
Over-praised, over-played, and over-rated.V 3 Comments
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 - ModernMusicIsAcancer
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.
Beautiful lyrics written by Leonard Cohen. The only song I love that I don't sing along with. I'm in awe every time I hear it.
The Buckley version is just another one of over 400 covers of this great song. By far the best is the original by Leonard Cohen.
I'm, always moved emotionally by this song!
The most beautiful song I know, besides Unchained Melody and Wish You Were Here. It is a rock song with so much emotion and so much beauty, it gets me every time. Especially if you listen to the Rattle and Hum live version, it is breathtaking. Deserves to be way higher.
Discussion begins here with Hotel California and also Hey Jude. These are rock songs. - klander4
Love U2 and this song is amazing, inspiring and uplifting. I love how it starts off soft and gets louder. Another great song by U2 is One. Bonos voice is unique and beautiful. This song leaves me in amazement. Just listen, don't sing with it.
This is a great song, by Brian Wilson for his own Mother. Sir Paul McCartney agrees with me on this, having said it is the most beautiful song ever written. And dear Paul know what he is talking about.
So so SO heart-warming and beautiful. This makes me smile and cry. Just gorgeous. I'm off to listen to it... - Britgirl
The way Mercury drags his voice on some of the lyrics is really showing how extremely talented he was in his way of entertaining.
Never really was much of a fan of jimi hendrix, but this song was great. - PotBellyPupV 2 Comments
