Top Ten Greatest Kanye West Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 No Church in the Wild

This song is so amazing! The tune is wicked and the rapping is awesome! It should be in the top ten at least. Love this song!

Tears on the mausoleum floor
Blood stains the Colosseum doors

It really motivated me to start a riot or somthing after I watched the music video

Kanye's verse was, lit, wow the most meaningful you know. Jayz and frank ocean were good but kanye made the song perfect.

22 Amazing

This song hooked me when I heard it for the first time. The next one week was followed by repeat of this song.

The title of the song fits its description perfectly. A very nice song excellent lyrics.. It should be definitely in the top ten

THIS IS AMAZING! Literally. Very surprised that it is not in top ten. Kanye demonstrates his wide range and that he is not just one- demensional

This is one of best from kayne

23 Good Morning

easily kanyes best song, this really was the pinacle of his career. The video is great the song has meaning. Anything Kanye does from releasing this single will be an attempt to improve on perfection

The Message In The Video For This Song Is The Whole Reason Why The Graduation Album Was Made - xXLennyKingXx

One of his best and the perfect opener to Graduation


24 Heard 'em Say

If you're a human being, you gotta listen to this song. This song is about as real as music gets. - javananthonydavis

My favorite. The most beautiful song that shows we people loved Kanye in the first place. Also I would like to point out the top 5 voted songs are all from different albums and I think that's pretty cool.

Great beat, rhythm, rap verses, and chorus.. the singer from Maroon 5 sings awesome vocals too. - Atliens

This song touches the heartstrings, the video almost makes me cry. Crazy good song.

What this should be so much higher, this song deserves to be at least top 15. It's one of the best tracks in watch the throne. The smooth transitions between jay and Ye makes it easy to listen to. Not only that but the lyrics are ingenious, "sophisticated ignorance write my curses in cursive" oh my god. Not only that but the smooth integration of Otis Redding in the track is what I think makes the song deserve a higher rating

Otis at #27? What is wrong with you people? This song should easily be a lot higher. Ye and Jay switched flows so well, leading into their epic verses, both murdered this song! "Got 5 passports, I'm never going to jail" "I made Jesus Walks, I'm never going to hell" Plus Kanye flipped the sample so perfectly.

I don't know why does it have few votes, its one of my favorite songs. Jay and Kanye killed that and the video was cool.

Kanye and Jay-Z murdered the hell out of this track and it features probably one of the best sample uses I've ever heard in a rap song. - Mcgillacuddy

This song just goes to say there's nothing stopping the power of kanye west! Yeezus! Check this song out

Probably the most profound track thematically and lyrically Kanye has ever created - Rockas

Not his best track but has the most ferocious flow

He goes hard on the track

27 Ultralight Beam

How is this 34? This song is amazing! The production is great. Kanye singing is really good. The choir is amazing. And Chance kills it. This should be in the top 10 at least. This is Kanye's second best work the first being Runaway

Helped me get through tough times. First time I listened to it, made me fall into tears. Amazing song and amazing lyrics, explosive ending. Really deserves to be on a higher rank.

This song really deserves to be higher on the list, if you don't agree, than you probably haven't FELT the song.

28 Devil In a New Dress

How this is 99 is beyond me... Did actual kanye fans vote for this? - Papacdub1

This is the best song kanye has ever created

No real kanye fans did vote. if we all did graduation yeezus and 808's and heartbreak with few exceptions in the late thirties wouldn't be on this list.

29 Family Business

This is simply kanye at his realest its not your typical bob your head song but this is real music touches your soul can make you connect with kanye on a level, ths is music how it should be emotional and truth with great production simply beautiful music and MR WEST at his best they don't make it like this anymore real HIP HOP.

This song is the most touching song ever produced by Kanye. Honestly there was the dramatic rises and different soul techniques to incorperate the emotions with the beauty side of it. I can honestly say, I related the most to this song than ANY other hip hop song.

He has so many good songs but I'd say that this one is his best. The beat, the samples, the lyrics, everything is perfect.

Just the best.

I don't know why this is 28!?! This should at least be fifth. I can't believe the people who voted. They're defiantly bad voters acctually they're terrible voters. People these days don't know a thing about music. Seriously! What are people thinking?

Ya it's the best rap song I heard in my life, really it sound better than any other

That "weeping and moaning and gnashing of teeth" part always gets me. - Mcgillacuddy

best song

33 Run This Town

Jay-Z and Kanye West just make a legendary duo. They work so well together, and Rihanna's hook on this is also great. It's the kind of song that gets you pumped up but still has a lot of emotion in it.

34 Clique

Features Jay Z, Big Sean, it's THE BEST!

Main reasons this song goes in: the beat is incredibly unique and addicting and Kanye destroys his verse. - Mcgillacuddy

How isn't this #1? It's a great song because it features Jay Z and Big Sean.

This should be in the top ten so should mercy

35 Gorgeous

Way too low! The best song on the years best album, all I need is the American Apparel girl in tights to.

Yezzy is lyrically incredible on the track. Greatest Alive He should be racking up tons of awards for this album
- jamalmartin

The amazing sample coupled with Cudi's hauntingly beautiful hook as well as the deep lyrics cement this in my mind as one of the greatest

Kid Cudi&Kanye+Raekwon at the end = Priceless.

36 Real Friends

I love this song, especially that chorus line and Dolla $ign's quick verse. I gotta say that, next to Ultralight Beam, this is one of Kanye's greatest new era tracks. - Mcgillacuddy

One of Kanye's most underrated songs. Definitely one of the greatest tracks of the past decade in hip hop.

Beat is so amazing, Kanye truly did a wonderful job on this song

"Oh you've nothing but a friend to me..." that part gets me every time.. Defintely his most underrated song. The beat, the lyrics, the outro, everything.

This song is dope. It also has a damn good beat and meaning.

Now you asking why songs like through the Wire are before Love Lockdown which is one of his more mediocre songs in my opinion

How the hell is this 44. Kanye West goes hard in verse 1 and the beat is just golden.

The best song off of his best album

38 Hell of a Life

Wicked bass line. Lyrics are on point!

Guitar was dope after the hook

What a great song and its not even in the top 10?!?!

That metallica sample, damm!

I can't be bothered to explain it all again, so just read Mushroom99s top ten list of kanye west, because that IS ME! - Mushroom99

40 Love Lockdown

IS IT SOME KIND OF JOKE..? Love lockdown at 17 below songs like through the wire, can't tell me nothing, all falls down man it should be in top 5 right away that what it deserves knye west didn't decide to put it as lead single for his album without thinking he put it because he thought it was one of his best songs SO PLEASE FANS OF HIS SHOW SOME JUST VOTE FOR THIS SONG!

! Are you serious, Love Lockdown is one of his best songs, the piano, the African drum beat, and that screaming animal sound or whistle I don't know, is just making of an amazing song, and the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2008 Remix Is even a little better than the original

This song is awesome kanye west is the best rapper ever - cheezo8

808s was not one of my more favoured albums from Kanye but I loved this song at first listen - Mcgillacuddy
