Songs With The Best Lyrics


The Contenders: Page 10

181 La Isla Bonita - Madonna

So beautiful so deep so charming - Irina2932

182 I Am the Walrus - The Beatles

The line sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the bus to come, makes me get the goosebumbs

"elementary penguins singing hare krishna"

This is just nonsesne. if you want good songwriting, see strawberry flieds forever - RecklessGreed

183 We've Had Enough - Michael Jackson
184 Putham Puthu - K.S. Chithra
185 Fighter - Christina Aguilera

Love the lyrics. Don't hate, have no want for revenge. Be grafeful for everything that made you who you are today.

186 It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding) - Bob Dylan

Definitely belongs here. The lyrics are very poetical and contains some very famous quotes like "he who is not busy being born is busy dying. " and "Sometime even the president of the United States has to stand naked. ". This is more than just a song. It is a piece of history.

Draws with Desolation Row as the two best lyrical songs I have ever heard. The cynical nature of this work is stunning, and in my opinion it is Dylan's best song. Not just the lyrics, but the way they are sung, make this song truly amazing.

I agree when I think of a song all about lyrics this is the one dylan him self said he could never write a song like this again. it came from thin air and wrote it self.

Endless amounts of timeless quotes, arguably, the best song ever written.

A song which has life in it! Once you listen to this one of course this will be your favourite for some time. Let she be another music legend. The best of the time.

192 Clean - Taylor Swift

No don't want to listen and not going to. I've got better things to listen to. You won't find me listening that's for sure so don't tell me to listen. Stop shoving!

Listen and comprehend...

She lost him but she found herself

193 Alive - Pearl Jam

Eddie Vedder has the knack of choosing songs with wonderful lyrics, which are not only beautiful in themselves but have such a heartfelt and moving truth within them. Everybody wants to be loved, that is so true; for those who have low self-esteem these lyrics are a huge encouragement to carry on, no matter how difficult life is

The story of this song is really deep

194 Take Me to Church - Hozier

Most gorgeous lyrics anywhere.

195 Fade to Black - Metallica

How is this so low?

196 Between the Bars - Elliott Smith

Elliott Smith was a genius. Listen to his songs, listen to his story. He was ridden with suicidal thoughts, attempted suicide, alcohol and drug abuse. If you know, he would have multiple songs in Top 25

The lyrics are just so amazing as well as everything else about this song

The lyrics to this song are pure perfection - Hai
