The Top Ten
1 A Change is Gonna Come - Sam Cooke A Change is Gonna Come - Sam Cooke Cover Art
2 Anthem - Deep Purple Anthem - Deep Purple Cover Art

Especially the chorus and the acoustic guitar riff and the backing vocals

While smoke on the water,child in time,soldiers of fortune,highway star is remembered but this song is one of the most underrated songs of them,this is a great song with mixture of classical elements and the vocals and keyboards riff(or whatever it calls) sounds very nice and beautiful

Just listen these lines

If the day would only come
Then you might just appear
Even though you'd soon be gone
When I reached out my hand

If I could see you
If only I could see you
To see if you are laughing or crying
When the night winds softly blow

3 Turn! Turn! Turn! - The Byrds Turn! Turn! Turn! - The Byrds Cover Art

And you can thank the Bible for the lyrics.

While a good beautiful song with beautiful vocals,beautiful guitar riff,lyrics everything's just so perfect to be called a beautiful song,that's why I added this on top of my list

5 The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel Cover Art
6 Suzanne - Leonard Cohen Suzanne - Leonard Cohen Cover Art

I added this one by mistake on 70's list, could you please not validate it? Too late... I reported it, and it was finally removed.

Oh, that opening, one of the most beutiful openings, after california girls and before in my life

I know his voice may not nice to some people but,this song's music is quite nice

10 Mr. Tambourine Man - The Byrds Mr. Tambourine Man - The Byrds Cover Art

They left out a number of verses in order to get radio airtime, making it a hit and earning Dylan millions of dollars.

I know it's a cover version,I haven't added Bob Dylan's version because it's nicer

The Contenders
11 Waterloo Sunset - The Kinks Waterloo Sunset - The Kinks Cover Art

Especially the riffs

12 The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down - The Band The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down - The Band Cover Art

Joan Baez's cover version was nicer but unfortunately that released in 1971

18 Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) - Nancy Sinatra Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) - Nancy Sinatra Cover Art

It was written by Sonny Bono for his then-wife Cher, but I prefer this version and it reminds me Kill Bill.

19 Hey Jude - Beatles Hey Jude - Beatles Cover Art

I think the whole song is beautiful. On the live performance when the crowd starts joining in on the nah nah nah's is absolutely beautiful.

The first half of this song is quite good,you know with piano riffs but the ending may not sound nice(beautiful) to some people

20 The Girl from Ipanema - Stan Getz The Girl from Ipanema - Stan Getz Cover Art

It's a classic of Brazilian bossa nova jazz, written in 1962 by Antonio Carlos Jobim with Portuguese lyrics by Vinicius de Moraes. This 1964 version by Stan Getz featuring Astrud Gilberto and Joao Gilberto, with english lyrics, is still the most known.
It is believed to be the second most recorded pop song in history, after "Yesterday" by The Beatles.
