Top Ten Greatest Non-Rock Songs of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Lovers - Jackie Evancho

Jackie at the age of 11 owned this song. Her haunting notes at the end still echo in my heart.

Jackie still sings this song at her concerts - and it gets better all the time. - BobG

A sample would be nice. Get it from "Dream With Me - In Concert". - Trancas

Jackie Evancho has an amazing singing voice!

2 Billie Jean - Michael Jackson

King of pop for a reason, beautiful song...

Amazing song from the 80s - Ajkloth

Enough with Jackie Overatancho! MJ is better,this song is better - McKing1003

3 I Remember - Deadmau5

It is an excellent song from start to finish. - PositronWildhawk

4 Thriller - Michael Jackson

This song is a masterpiece! Something this years music industry lacks - mysterious

The Music video is pretty cool too!

5 Lose Yourself - Eminem

The genre is rap rock so it counts at a rock song - Th3Zm0nst3r

Is it even possible to hate this song?

6 Ghosts N' Stuff - Deadmau5
7 Hurt - Johnny Cash
8 Stan - Eminem
9 Extreme Ways - Moby
10 Bangarang - Skrillex

The Contenders

11 DJ Got Us Fallin In Love - Usher
12 Mad World - Michael Andrews
13 California Love - 2pac
14 We Are All Made of Stars - Moby
15 Stand by Me - Ben E. King

So sad that we lost the amazing singer Ben E. King yesterday.

16 Rap God - Eminem
17 Unfinished Sympathy - Massive Attack
18 Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson
19 This Night - Filo & Peri
20 What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

This is one of those songs that lets you put aside the chaos and makes you realize how great it is to be alive

Great song to listen to when you're depressed

21 Blowin' In the Wind - Bob Dylan
22 Your Song - Elton John
23 I Had This Thing - Royksopp

Easily one of the most upbeat and lively, and yet most lugubrious and haunting songs of all time. Either way you look at it, it truly is a pièce de résistance which exhibit's Royksopp's talent for almost anything. - PositronWildhawk

24 Waiting for the Night - Armin Van Buuren
25 Strobe - Deadmau5
26 My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion
27 Haven't Met You Yet - Michael Buble
28 Softly As I Leave You - Frank Sinatra

Dancing talent has nothing to do with singing talent. For singing talent alone, Sinatra tops MJ by a mile.

29 Nessun Dorma - Luciano Pavarotti

Super super super. In every way possible! - higgsboson2142

Yes, its too bad that 99% of TTT users have no idea who Luciano was, or have ever heard Nessun Dorma.

30 Lie Down In Darkness - Moby
31 Fade to Grey - Visage
32 Puff the Magic Dragon - Peter, Paul, & Mary
33 The Winner Takes It All - Abba

Should be number 1, in my opinion. - MontyPython

34 Firework - Katy Perry

Easily qualifies as one of the worst songs of all time. - PositronWildhawk

It is so beautiful I can lessons to it all day. Your voice is amazing.

35 May It Be - Enya
36 Con Te Partiro - Sarah Brightman
37 White Christmas - Bing Crosby
38 You Raise Me Up - Josh Groban
39 The Impossible Dream - Robert Goulet

42 Sunday Mornin' Comin Down - Kris Kristofferson
43 If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot
44 The Mummer's Dance - Loreena McKennitt
