The Top Ten

1 Voice of the Soul - Death

Words can't describe this. You have to feel it. Also, words can't describe the Voice of the Soul. That's why this is an instrumental. - Metal_Treasure

2 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

It's a suicide song. - Metal_Treasure

3 Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton
4 In This River - Black Label Society

Tribute to Dime - christangrant

5 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
6 Floods - Pantera
7 Black Star - Yngwie Malmsteen
8 Fiddler on the Green - Demons & Wizards

This ballad is about 2 kids dying in 2 car accidents that happened in one week at the same intersection. It's based on a real life story - the singer/lyricist (Hansi Kursch) saw both accidents while walking his dog.
In the song these 2 kids (a boy and a girl) are soul mates. The album cover depicts this story. - Metal_Treasure

9 Soldier of Fortune - Deep Purple
10 My Immortal - Evanescence

The Contenders

11 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day
12 Anybody There - Rainbow
13 Cemetary Gates - Pantera
14 Down Where I Am - Demons & Wizards

The song is about a father whose newborn child was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. It describes how difficult it is to accept this fact.
"Please tell me why I don't wanna see you 'Cause even your smile hurts, Oh it hurts like hell". - Metal_Treasure
