The Contenders: Page 12

221 Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits
222 Can't Stop the Feeling - Justin Timberlake
223 Northern Downpour - Panic! at the Disco

The lyrics to this song are pure perfection - Hai

224 Sherane a.k.a Master Splinter's Daughter - Kendrick Lamar
225 Dong Saya Dae - Bga

Greatest K-pop song ever? - naFrovivuS

226 Supernatural Superserious - R.E.M.
227 Angel - Sarah McLachlan

Wrong to keep one of the best lyricist, Sarah, so low on this list. I just lost hope here

228 Like a Prayer - Madonna

People may think it is a sexual song but Andre Crouch (who is part of the choir singing in the song) said it is a song about exploring the power of prayer. The choir wouldn't even be on the record if it was all about SEX as they were very picky!

Like A Prayer is sick! People used to hate this is song because the Queen Of Pop was telling the truth! <3
There's something wrong in this list because I don't see any songs of Prince while he's one of the best songwriter ever!
MJ didn't even write Thriller...! I have the album at home, I'm shocked!

229 The Kids from Yesterday - My Chemical Romance


230 The World I Know - Collective Soul
231 Cortez the Killer - Neil Young

"and his subjects gathered round him like the leaves around a tree in their clothes of many colors for the angry gods to see'

232 Re-Education (Through Labor) - Rise Against

"To the sound of a heartbeat pounding away
To the rhythm of the awful rusted machines
We toss and turn but don't sleep
Each breath we take makes us thieves
Like causes without rebels
Just talk but promise nothing else

We crawl on our knees for you
Under a sky no longer blue
We sweat all day long for you
But we sow seeds to see us through
'Cause sometimes dreams just don't come true
We wait to reap what we are due"

Rise Against should definitely be on this list, they have plenty of songs with strong, meaningful lyrics.

217 Really? There are so many Rise Against songs that should be at least top 50(for me even top 10) and this song is one of them.

What the hell...Rise against should be in the top 20 at least.

233 Hall of Fame - The Script
234 Where Is the Love? - Black Eyed Peas

This has to be number one, this is the most beautiful one about peace

Brillient commentary and criticism of... Well, the world, really. Mostly the lack of love and care within America. - Maplestrip

235 The Message from Dr. Light - The Megas
236 Blank Space - Taylor Swift

I'm disappointed by the ranking of Blank Space... It should be in the Top Ten! The lyrics are so awesome that I have no words to express how good it is... Where are the Swifties?!

Such an awesome song! It should be so much higher!

Blank Space cause it won in the category "Best Lyrics" at the iheart radio awards in 2015

237 The a Team - Ed Sheeran

This song is quite a beautiful song with a sketchy meaning. Ed Sheeran somehow brought these two elements together perfectly.

"It's too cold outside for angels to fly."
I don't know about anyone here but that's certainly beautiful.

238 The Monster - Eminem

I wrote a song called "Alter Ego" and it focused on the same subject of rethinking what I did in the past. - MusicMovieMinecraftMe

239 Two Suns In the Sunset - Pink Floyd

Makes me cry every time I hear it. "Looks like the human race is run."

The most powerful lyrics I've ever heard EVER. END OF STORY

240 Stitches - Shawn Mendes

I thought that I'd been hurt before
But no one's ever left me quite this sore
Your words cut deeper than a knife
Now I need someone to breathe me back to life

Got a feeling that I'm going under
But I know that I'll make it out alive
If I quit calling you my lover
Move on

You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
Shaking, falling onto my knees
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches
Tripping over myself
Aching, begging you to come help
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches

Best teen pop song ever with the best lyrics! Oh gee, I love Shawn. He is too handsome... - DynastiSugarPop
