The Top Ten

1 This is It - Michael Jackson

Song about the death of a young girl, performed astonishingly by another, real-life young girl. - BobG

3 Knights of Cydonia - Muse

A TRULY epic song. The riffs! The chorus! The lyrics! The vocals! Shouldn't really work, but Muse MAKES it WORK! Beautifully Amazing.

Truly a classic. I love muse, and this song, without a doubt, is the best song of the decade. Matt Bellamy's finest work.
