The Contenders: Page 2

21 Good Morning 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

22 Amazing 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

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

Cool lyrics, awesome best and piano, and Adam Levine at the top of his vocal game. Good song

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

Love This SO much. Most people only know the chorus but the rest is good to

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

The intro is amazing, but not nicki Minaj, well she is great, but the music in the background is what gets me haha

Why is this #31, this song is super catchy and has good vocals

The slight changes in the chorus makes this song genius

Best intro to album ever

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.

Great song, placed 31. ? Way too low.

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.

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.

32 Slow Jamz Slow Jamz

The song to good to be true put it at one

Classic song you play it anywhere and everybody will start singing

This is a classic.. The sample is beautiful

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

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

Song shows Kanye at his best. The arrogant and Egostical beat and flow makes this song so great

35 Love Lockdown 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

36 The New Workout Plan The New Workout Plan

This song is absolutely awful, should be in the top ten, worst part of an otherwise amazing album

This is one of Yeezys most fun songs. And the way it breaks down at the end with the guitar bass and drums is incredible, it's perfect to jam to.

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.

Why is this song not in the top tens?

By far the best song off TLOP, he closes his live show with this song and it's beautiful

Chance kills it, kanye kills it, production is incredible, brilliant opener to TLOP

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

39 Hell of a Life Hell of a Life

Wicked bass line. Lyrics are on point!
