Best Slow But Powerful Songs of Music History
The Top Ten
It was originally by Nine Inch Nails. The Nine Inch Nails version is much better. - PhoenixAura81
This song is so powerful and the video always brings me to tears.
Come on, the story is sad.
I love this song! This is my jam! 😁 - DynastiNoble
Best lay off the java.
When you need it sung slowly and powerfully, call on Jackie. - BobG
Music used at the conclusion of the "Red Wedding" scene in "Game Of Thrones".
Dark, ominous, and extremely powerful.
The more I listen to this song, the more it astonishes me. Very ethereal. - BobG
There is nothing more epic than this song. It starts out slow, and builds up the mood so perfectly that when it's over it doesn't feel long at all.
It seems to build up for ages and rock out so shortly. This is how you create a masterpiece, people! - Donut
Thanks Led Zeppelin for making our lives better with such an awesome masterpiece!
Great song touching.
Why right now.
I can't even find song like this?
Love this song every school dance at my old school we would play this song
My daughter song to me xx

This song isn't slow... - MontyPython
Why is this not number one... (O O)
If only Vice City had this, shame that it wasn't in both Vice City games. :( - Gehenna
Lovely, and just a song that Jackie Loves to sing, and we Love to hear... Nobody does it better..
Theme from the movie "House of Flying Daggers"; the final acapella line will make your heart explode.
See "Dream With Me - In Concert", her first PBS special with David Foster.
Last 25 seconds of this song is the best sound ever recorded.
Not slow, but still an amazing song. - Stalin
I have never listened to it before. - DynastiNoble
I think "Effigy" is a much better, slower song by CCR. - BobG
Just what do you think "fast" is?
Really, really exquisite. Like "Echoes" and "Shine On You Crazy Diamond". Pink Floyd are the best rock band ever. End of. - PositronWildhawk
Everybody loves this song
And I would have stayed up
With you all night
Had I known
How to save a life!
Pretty good - Cheeseant910
It's about the power of love. - Metal_Treasure
Amazing song. - PhoenixAura81
I love this song. It's perfect for this list. Slow but the words sink in and truly have an effect on you. All 12 minutes of this song could be classified into 1 phrase "Simply Perfect". I seriously think this is the best song ever made. - dudesterravensfan
"This is the end, beautiful friend. " These words always give me chills. The End is the definitive slow but powerful song. Seriously go listen to all 12 minutes. Especially the last 2 minutes.
One of the best songs ever
Tells the story from inside an emotional rock and roller's head, one of the biggest ones at that. Shows you, we're all human. The final chorus which the backing vocals and rhythm guitars (via Malcolm on BV, Angus and Mal on RG) get bolder brings out an emotional closure to the song.
