Top Ten Best Songs of 2005


The Top Ten

1 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day

I love Green Day

2 Fix You - Coldplay

It brings tears to my eyes every time - hardly any songs reach my heart quite as much as this one. Let's all get it to the top! - Entranced98

2005 > now
SIMPLE MATH - Merilille

3 Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold

It's real

4 I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor - Arctic Monkeys
5 Octavarium - Dream Theater

Now it's on 2nd place GOOD DONE guys, makes this won the spot in the first place and later make this song won the first place on the list "best songs of all time"

Excuse me? 22? This is the most epic song of the last 25 years

6 Stricken - Disturbed
7 Feel Good Inc. - Gorillaz

This song is awesome - PatrickStar3

YES! Gorillaz! Feel Good inc is one of their best songs, hands down. We need to get this to first!

What one of the best songs of all times is 31!

8 Do You Want To - Franz Ferdinand

One of the catchiest songs in this list by a huge margin. Franz Ferdinand might not be the biggest band around, but they have quality that many acts these days lack.

A very underrated British band from Scotland. Franz Ferdinand have more quality songs than all artists across the pond from here.

When it comes to party music, they don't come any more entertaining than Do You Want To from Franz Ferdinand. - Stewie0

A band that actually plays the instruments, Franz Ferdinand might be one of the most under-rated bands of the last decade.

9 Holiday - Green Day

The sample... feels weird. If that's the actual version, then forget this being the best thing ever, more like a 3/5 - ProPanda

I LOVE Green Day!

10 Because of You - Kelly Clarkson

The Newcomers

? Hey Mama - Kanye West

The Contenders

11 Polar 240 - Paragonx9
12 I Predict a Riot - Kaiser Chiefs
13 Sugar, We're Goin' Down - Fall Out Boy

This song should be #1

THE BEST SONG EVER! How is this not No1?
Actually, I'm a fan of the No1 song too but this edges it for me!

If U R reading this and U haven't heard sugar then please go and listen to it. I am sure you'll vote it

14 Ridin' - Chamillionaire
15 Gold Digger - Kanye West


16 Every Planet We Reach is Dead - Gorillaz

Why is this 40? Best song of 2005.

"Birds came flying from the underground, if you could see it then you'd understand! " What an amazing song, it should be so much higher!

One of the best songs of 2005! damn this should be #1
