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!

20 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

21 Waiting for the Night - Armin Van Buuren UListen to Sample
22 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
