6 Yesterday - The Beatles

I love the Beatles I've seen then in real life well my dad has

Very simple yet meaningful. A song doesn't have to be long to be nice. - Userguy44

One of the best songs of all times. Some people need years to make history, Paul McCarney did it in only 2 minutes and 32 seconds.

a song that was consider to be called scrambled eggs turns out to be one of the most played songs ever behind Stairway to Heaven -

7 Teenagers - My Chemical Romance

Because the drugs never work
"They're gonna give you a smirk
Cause they got methods of keeping you clean
They gonna rip up your head
Youre aspirations to shreds"
- Andii

Yes yes yes. Teenage violence. Did you know Gerard Way wrote this on the train? Yep. He was afraid of the teenagers he saw there. This song rocks. I didnt know it was that short.

Pure My Chemical Romance. It's got everything to make you look up and like it. The best song in a long long time guys. And it's so short too! And by the way, Queen sucks. And so does 'We will, we will rock you'. Duds.

This song is so pumping.. It gives me a rush in where I can do anything and everything!
