A very deep and strong song as well as the album SCOUNDREL DAYS.
Needless to mention the vocals, because Morten Harket is always perfect. - meganharket

This list is a joke. This song is considered the Best Heavy metal songs of all time and it is number 43 on this list. - IronMainiac666
I'm not even the biggest fan of Iron Maiden, but this song completely rules. How the hell is Poison higher than this masterpiece? - maarilynmaanson
What is this this is terrible
47..Definitely a joke.
One of the best songs ever from Irish magicians. Praise Bono, Adam Clayton, Larry Mullen, Jr. & The Edge for their gift to this life. Hope they live on & on & on & bless us all by their Music.
I love U2 I think they are incredible, their sound is beautiful as is the Edge's guitar. I have never heard a song that I don't love. I think that they are the greatest band ever... I know people would argue for Led Zeppelin (who I love) because of Page's guitar, Plant's vocals and not to mention John Bonzo Bonhams thunderous drums but u2 have a different style of music to Led Zep, They are easier to listen to and at their concerts you get a feeling of closeness, like its just you and the band, whereas Led Zep are giants... nobody can touch them. The final thing is that I have to praise the band, especially Bono, for all the humanitarian work they have done. Some quick song suggestions: SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY BY U2, WITH OR WITH OUT YOU BY U2 AND BAD BY U2', happy listening.
The reason U2 are good is because they are timeless. The songs may be old, but they sound like they could've been recorded today. That is the main draw of U2. Top ten material for sure.
This is still a great U2 song, but I love Bullet the Blue Sky by them even better as its unique tone and sounds make it one for the records, literally!V 4 Comments
Remember when I first heard this, thought what is Aerosmith doing with a rap group? But ya know what...it worked! Crazy, but it worked...V 1 Comment
This song should be in the top 50 at least! The beginning of the song starts out with a type of dark melody then it bursts out at you with such amazing guitar and drums blasting and with such an expert level of lyrics! This song is 6 minutes of awesomeness! You will never hear anything like it, the song is unique and it is everything you want in an original multi genre song they have their own sound and that is what makes them unique (plus they had a crazy style back then no matter what they really grabbed attention)! ~
The best songs of 80s! Thanks Yoshiki Hayashi for his awesome songs and lyrics!
No! Horrible uninspired song.
Undeserving of top 1,000,000 songs.
No Talent garbage, tossers
Most epic song ever! How is it not on the list? - gibsonrock53
1988 this was released... So 100% 80s
This song has always been underrated! ALWAYS!
Awesome songV 3 Comments
Great song, popular but always thought it has been underrated. It is a beautiful song with inspiring lyrics. Should be much higher on the list.
If you grew up in the eighties, this is, like a swan song to that time. The memories will always remain.
Such a good song. Can't believe it is at the bottom of the list
This song makes me feel good - YoshiAppleV 3 Comments
This is an awesome song... I'm so in love with his voice and you can really feel something behind the music because they made it with passion.
This original song is way better that gene stefani's version
I Like This Version Than No Doubt Version - masoncarr2244V 2 Comments
I dunno, but I really love this song. I hope it moves up the list. I vote for them all. And no, I am not the adder of the song. I am my own man. Thanks for adding it anyway, whoever you R. I love Queen. I love Freddie Mercury. Forever.
There should be more Queen on top 100
Needs to be at least top 50!
Love sing along to this song… Love Queen..
Maybe the best ABBA song (let's say there's a tie with one of us). I can't understand how people recall more dancing queen, although nice pop music, which does not have the tenth of the feeling force of those songs...
It's a really intense ballad about the hurt of a dissolving relationship. I've always liked ABBA but this is one of my favorites!
Such powerful lyrics should be top 30
Love this songV 2 Comments
