21 Save Me - Queen Save Me - Queen V 2 Comments
22 After The Gold Rush - Neil Young After The Gold Rush - Neil Young
23 California Girls - The Beach Boys California Girls - The Beach Boys
24 Yesterday - The Beatles Yesterday - The Beatles

This is my 3rd favorite song of all time. I was going to vote for You are not Alone by MJ but I just had to make sure Yesterday was here! This has to be number 1!

This absolutely deserves to be higher - was gonna vote for "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen for the same reason but this is historically significant as well.

One of the best songs ever written! Everything about this song is wonderful!

25 The Kill - 30 Seconds to Mars The 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.

Everyone should listen this song... Its lyric is awesome... And its guitar riffs and drum work is just awesome... Check this out man

37 Unchained Melody - The Righteous Brothers Unchained Melody - The Righteous Brothers

There is a reason why this song has been remade over and over again, and there is a reason why not a single remake has come close to surpassing this version. It is an amazing song paired with the perfect voice to give it wings.

I once heard someone sing it as beautifully as the Righteous Brothers. It was just an unknown black man who was singing it along with the piano in my dorm. He didn't know anyone was listening. I instantly fell in love with the guy.

38 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

The lyrics are so beautiful
