The best songs from one of the greatest musicians of all time, Elliott Smith.

The Top Ten

1 Between the Bars Between the Bars

Not only does this song stuck itself inside your head for hours, the meaning and symbolism present is unbelievable. The way he sings, the feel of the words, the flow of his voice, the whole song is perfection.

The most beautiful song in the world. I cried the first time I heard this masterpiece. His voice is just... perfect in this song.

Hauntingly beautiful. Words just fail to express when it comes to his masterpieces. I love you, Elliott...
