Top Ten Song Questions to Ask TopTenners

I am making this list giving to 2 choices of songs you will have to answer me which one yes some are going to be a bit weird but answer this than ask me more question about songs than I will answer you

The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen) or Lose Yourself (Eminem)

Without disregarding the nice work by Eminem, Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody is such a well-done and fairly unique creation there really aren't many songs that would top it in a one to one comparison and certainly not in this choice. - Billyv

No doubt that Eminem is very talented, but I choose Bohemian Rhapsody because it is a wonderful and beautiful song. - CartoonsGirl

I've got Lose Yourself on this one. Bohemian Rhapsody is actually, in my opinion, the most overrated song of all time. There are many songs that deserve more respect than what it gets, Lose Yourself being one of them. - Shake_n_Bake13

Bo Rhap. - bzsuzsi0128

2 Echoes (Pink Floyd) or American Pie (Don McLean)

Agree here that American Pie is the choice despite how solid Echoes and Pink Floyd are. American Pie is/was just Too important of a song to take a back seat here. - Billyv

This is difficult. Since I have to be in the right mood for Echoes, but American Pie is enjoyable at any time, the latter gets my vote. - PetSounds

American Pie is a better song - BigBrotherSucks

I haven't listened to Echoes, but American Pie is one off my favorite songs - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

3 Thiller - (Michael Jackson) or A Day in The Life (The Beatles)

A Day In The Life - no contest. Much better, more important subject matter addressed very creatively, fairly straightforward and understandable, as well as very entertaining, musically solid and performed superbly. - Billyv

I love both of those songs very much, it's hard to chose really. Thriller is my favorite Michael Jackson song while A Day in the Life is my favorite Beatles song. But I'm going to pick A Day in the Life. - MontyPython

I would choose A Day In The Life. I find Thriller a little overrated. But, hell, even MY PARENTS found it overrated when it was released! - kaitlynrad11

thriller - casuit20

4 Earth Song (Micheal Jackson) or Amazing (Alex Loyyd)

No contest but Earth Song, beside it is all about the world. - ArigatoKawaii

Earth Song gets my vote. - MontyPython

I think earth song is better - casuit20

Amazing is amazing - TealBoyxx

5 Unfinished Sympathy (Massive Attack) or I Had This Thing (Royksopp)

Massive attack - TealBoyxx

Both are firm favourites of mine. Very similar heartbreaking poetry, very similar mind-soothing vibes, but still radically contrasted. - PositronWildhawk

6 Just The Way You Are (Bruno Mars) or Never Say Never (Justin Bieber)

Yes, well I don't really think there's any sort of fair comparison between Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber, and I think the list creator likely intended a severe mismatch here. - Billyv

I pick Just the Way You Are. Even though I hate that song as well, there's at least some originality put in to it. Anything is better than Justin Bieber.

Never Justin bieber his parents must be desperate to rase a man child - TealBoyxx

Just The Way You Are because I like that song. - lovefrombadlands

7 Space Oddity (David Bowie) or Rocket Man (Elton John)

This is a tough call - great songs, great artists, great performances, same unique subject matter... Space Oddity. - no Wait... I think it's going to be a long, long time before I can decide... - Billyv

Space Oddity. Bowie rules. - JCHOW

Rocket man - TealBoyxx

Space Oddity - ProPanda

8 Ghosts N' Stuff (Deadmau5) or We Are Here to Make Some Noise (Armin Van Buuren)

Ghosts n Stuff. I'm a big fan of Deadmau5. - AlphaQ

Deadmau5 is amazing - TealBoyxx

9 Call Me Maybe (Carly Ray Jespen) or Down (Jay Sean)

I despise both songs, but I pick Call Me Maybe. - MontyPython

Call me Maybe, confessing that I was a big fan of this and still do. - ArigatoKawaii

Down wins but I also like Call Me Maybe - BigBrotherSucks

Call me maybe - casuit20

10 Retrograde (James Blake) or a Case for Shame (Moby)

The Newcomers

? Uptown Funk (Bruno Mars) or 24k Magic (Bruno Mars)
? Bad Blood (Taylor Swift) or Swish Swish (Katy Perry)

The Contenders

11 Let It Be (The Beatles) or Bridge Over Troubled Water (Simon and Garfunkel)

Same as Monty said - absolutely love Let It Be which comforts me here on Earth, but Bridge Over Troubled Water takes me closer to Heaven - Billyv

Hmm... Tough one. I'm a really big Beatles fan, but I'm leaning more towards Bridge Over Troubled Water. - MontyPython

Let it Be - anything and everything is so good about this song even though it can have flaws. - ArigatoKawaii

Let It Be, I am more of a Beatles fan. - Lucretia

V 2 Comments
12 Baby (Justin Bieber) or Love Me Like That (R5)

I don't even know what Love Me Like That is, but I'm picking it. - MontyPython

Love Me Like That wins even know it is not that great it is still better than Baby - BigBrotherSucks

I have no clue what R5 is but baby is my least favourite song, so love me like that. - DapperPickle

Love me like that - casuit20

13 Good Vibrations (The Beach Boys) or Light My Fire (The Doors)

Evan though I like The Doors better, I think I have to go with Good Vibrations. I never really cared for Light My Fire. - JCHOW

Ah dammit! It's so hard to choose! They both rock! But I'm gonna have to pick... Light My Fire. - MontyPython

Writing the answer to this question, I'm pickin' up good vibrations. - BeatlesFan1964

Good vibrations are appreciated but I prefer she'd Light My Fire - Billyv

14 This Night (Filo & Peri) or Hold On to Me (Armin Van Buuren)
15 Nothin Bout You (Bob) or Love The Way You Lie (Eniem)

Hard Question but I will go Love The Way You Lie - BigBrotherSucks

Who's Eniem? I thought I knew that song...but... - lovefrombadlands

Love the way you lie - casuit20

16 Superhuman (Au5 Remix) or Promises (Skrillex Remix)

This is an important question for electronic music fans. Do you take the time to see the art and beauty of dubstep, or just go for some mainstream noise to take the soul from the genre? I go for the former. - PositronWildhawk

17 Your Song (Elton John) or She's Always a Woman (Billy Joel)

She's Always a Woman is gorgeous and underrated, Your Song is bloated with cornball lyrics and overplayed to death.

V 2 Comments
18 Wterloo Sunset (The Kinks) or Behind Blue Eyes (The Who)

Good choices! Waterloo Sunset and The Kinks can often be underappreciated but Behind Blue Eyes, probably my favorite of The Who, gets my vote - Billyv

I love love love love love love love love love love love LOVE The Who! So that's why I pick Behind Blue Eyes. - MontyPython

Waterloo Sunset. - BeatlesFan1964

19 Breathe (Fred) or Rise Above (Electus)
20 Incense and Peppermints (The Strawberry Alarm Clock) or White Rabbit (Jefferson Airplane)

Go ask Alice, would ya?! White Rabbit catches much more to me - the magnitude and impact of the delivery. - Billyv

21 Anaconda (Nicki Minaj) or Baby (Justin Bieber)

I'll go with Baby. At least it was listenable and didn't try too hard to be sexy unlike Anaconda. - AlphaQ

A bad song or another bad song? - RiverClanRocks

I really hope neither is an option for this one, because... Both of them are terrible - ladybug375

Honestly anaconda - ProPanda

Anaconda. - ArigatoKawaii

22 Crank That (Soulja Boy) (Soulja Boy Tell 'Em) or Drug Ballad (Eminem)

I say Dug Ballard but I hate to say this but I also like Crank That - BigBrotherSucks

Drug Ballad. I Kinda like Drug ballad but Crank That is boring. - AlphaQ

I Like Drug Ballad, But I Despise Crank That - BeatlesFan1964

Both songs are trash, but Drag Ballad - simpsondude

23 Roar (Katy Perry) or Applause (Lady Gaga)

Applause, even though a flop Applause was one of Gaga's greatest songs behind Bad Romance, Perfect Illusion, Telephone, Video Phone. - ArigatoKawaii

Roar, by far. Though both are good songs - Icegirl119

Out of the two, roar. - 906389

roar - casuit20

24 Anaconda (Nicki Minaj) or Fancy (Iggy Azalea)

NickI Minaj is much better than Iggy Azalea. Anaconda however is really unlistedable and boring while in Fancy, Iggy had a decent flow and it was partly saved by Charlie XXX. - AlphaQ

25 2 Phones (Kevin Gates) or Bad and Boujee (Migos)

Bad and Boujee because it's boring, and the other is annoying. I would rather be annoyed than bored. - lovefrombadlands

Bad and Boujee. It had a decent flow nut was ruined by its boring Ness and Uzi's obnoxious presence. 1.5/5
2 Phones is too whiny and autotuned to be considered rap. 1/5 - AlphaQ

26 Uptown Funk (Bruno Mars) Or Happy (Pharrell)

Uptown Funk, I hate the song Happy. And Uptown Funk is by Mark Ronson, not Bruno Mars. - MontyPython

Uptown Funk. I like Happy too but Uptown Funk has a dope ass Grove. - AlphaQ

I LOVE Uptown Funk and I hate Happy. So, Uptown Funk, obviously.

happy - casuit20

27 Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin) or Dust in the Wind (Kansas)

Stairway to Heaven wins my vote. - MontyPython

Stairway to Heaven, no contest - Shake_n_Bake13

Dust in the Wind easily. Stairway to Heaven SUCKS! - AlphaQ

Neither. - lovefrombadlands

28 I'm Home (Gym Class Heroes) or Booty (Jennifer Lopez)

I'm Home cause Booty is nipple cancer. - AlphaQ

29 Coma White (Marilyn Manson) or Coma Black (Marilyn Manson)

Coma White! Coma Black is also great but Coma White is the original and better one - ComaWhite21

Coma White, by far. It's one of Manson's best songs - Shake_n_Bake13

Racist Song. Lol. - AlphaQ

30 Shine on You Crazy Diamond (Pink Floyd) Starless (King Crimson)

Both aren't too bad, but I'm going to have to go with Starless by King Crimson. It's less boring, and has better instrumental parts, especially during the last 2-3 minutes of the song.

31 The Model (Kraftwerk) or Miss It So Much (Royksopp)
32 All Gold Everything (Trinidad James) or Bounce (Dynamite MC)

Bounce Back by Big Sean. - AlphaQ

33 Bandz a Make Her Dance (Juicy J) or Customer (Aasim)
34 Bang Bang (Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj) or Bang Bang (Rammstein)

Ariana Grande and Jessica J are much better than Bummstein. The songs is much funner and Ariana is pretty good here. - AlphaQ

35 Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin) or Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen)

I hate Bohemian Rhapsody but it's better than that train wreck Stairway to Heaven. - AlphaQ

Both are amazing but bohemian rhapsody better - casuit20

Bohemian Rhapsody works better for me. - Metal_Treasure

Bo Rhap.

36 Baby (Justin Bieber) or Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin)

Stairway to heaven awesome - casuit20

Baby obviously. It wasn't that good. Stairway to Heaven is absolutely horrendous.
Baby: 1.5/5
S2H: -1/5 - AlphaQ

I like Baby by Justin Bieber, and how he says "Baby Baby Baby Oh! ", and it's the best song ever, right? WRONG! Stairway to Heaven is the better song, Obviously.

37 Fack (Eminem) or the View (Lou Reed and Metallica)

I guess The View is funnier to listen to. "I AM THE TABLE! I AM THE TABLE! "

The View. Everything is better than FACK. - AlphaQ

38 Drinkin' Too Much (Sam Hunt) or I Fink U Freeky?

Drinkin Too Much is a lazy, disgusting piece.of litter.
I Fink U Freeky is an incomprehensible mess and doesn't Cound as a song. I still prefer IFUF. - AlphaQ

39 Panda (Desiigner) or 7 Years (Lukas Graham)

Panda by a landslide. 7 Years is literally whiny nonsense. It's basically a grown u trying to sing while he's drunk (he is) and is literally lazy. Panda on the other hand good rhymes and a flow by Desiigner. It's got an excellent beat too. - AlphaQ

40 Rap God (Eminem) or Look at Me Now (Chris Brown)

Rap god obviously - casuit20

Rap God by a mile. It's a 6 minute monster full of gargantuan rhymes and a speedy ass flow. 7/5
Look At Me Now is a 4 minute jerk off with Chris Brown's farts, Busta Rhymes lit rhymes and Lil Wayne's decent flow. Chris Clown ruins the song and loses 1.5 points for it. 2.5/5 - AlphaQ

41 Art of Life (X Japan) or Billie Jean (Michael Jackson)

This is more of a personal choice than a somewhat objective, critical one, but I love Billie Jean. - Billyv

Billie Jean definitely wins my vote, one of my all time favorite songs - Ajkloth

42 The Beautiful People (Marilyn Manson) or Dragula (Rob Zombie)

Definitely Dragula. I do take Manson over Zombie, but with these two songs definitely Dragula. It is Rob Zombie's epic masterpiece, a force to be reckoned with - Shake_n_Bake13

The Beautiful People. - MontyPython

Dragula. - JCHOW

Drugula cause Beautiful People by that talentless hack Marilyn Manston stinks. - AlphaQ

43 Stupid Hoe (Nicki Minaj) or Anaconda (Nicki Minaj)

Both of these songs are garbage, but I think the latter is worse. - Turkeyasylum

Stupid Hoe gets the edge here. At least Nicki had a decent flow and was horribly funny in Stupid Hoe. Anaconda has none of those. - AlphaQ

44 Racks (Young Chris) or Good Feeling (Flo Rida)
45 Stoner (Young Thug) or Try Me (Dej Loaf)

Try Me cause Young Thug is nipple baby corn powder onion. - AlphaQ

46 Master of Puppets (Metallica) or Peace Sells (Megadeth)

Master of Puppets easy. Megadeth is good, but their songs just can't compete with Metallica's. - Shake_n_Bake13

Both are awesome, but I choose Master of Puppets. - IronSabbathPriest

Both are great, but I chose MOP. - Alpha101

Master of Puppets - BeatlesFan1964

47 Day N' Nite (Kid Cudi) or Kid Ink (Show Me)
48 Round and Round (Ratt) or Kickstart My Heart (Mötley Crüe)

Kickstart my heart is an amazing rock song - Ajkloth

Mötley Crüe is too good for words, so Kickstart My Heart it is! - MontyPython

49 Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin) or Into the West (Annie Lennox)

Stairway to Heaven. - MontyPython

50 God Gave Me You (Blake Shelton) or I See You (Luke Bryan)

God Gave Me You has no contest. - ArigatoKawaii
