The song is about McCartney's dead mother. Most agree that it is one of the Beatles' best, me included.

25 Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton

One of the most underrated song I know. Don't really like the bad, but the song is great.

"Don't go out tonight,
'Cause it's bound to take you life,
There's a bad moon on the rise"
Just a little thought and you will realize that the "bad moon" is a nuclear detonation.

36 Death Row - Pentagram Death Row - Pentagram

"Waiting your turn, just to die
You wish that someone could be by your side
You're so afraid to be alone
You need my help so that you can be strong

And what will you miss
When death gives you a kiss" - Metal_Treasure

37 The Rains of Castamere - Jackie Evancho The Rains of Castamere - Jackie Evancho

From the "Red Wedding" episode of "Game of Thrones". A considerable amount of people die.

38 Riders On the Storm - The Doors Riders On the Storm - The Doors
39 Hey Man Nice Shot - Filter Hey Man Nice Shot - Filter
40 Like You - Evanescence Like You - Evanescence

Very emotional song about her sister. She dedicates a song on each album to her, like a tradition.
I'm an Evhead so don't think I won't add this on here. - The_Violist
