The Top Ten

2 Teaching Angels How to Fly - Jackie Evancho

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

Composed by James Breedwell, a Country Song Writer, but wrote this song from his Heart, and the Heart is touched by Jackie Evancho...

From her first independent CD "Prelude To A Dream", released in 2009.

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.
