21 Hotel California - The Eagles

Wow this must be a joke! Not even in the top 100! This song is arguably the best song ever written along with stairway to heaven

One of the best songs of all time, also has one of the best guitar solos of all time. The rhythm goes insanely good with the lyrics

Wow... People voting here clearly don't know this song

Should be number one

22 America - Simon and Garfunkel

"counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike..."

23 Changes - David Bowie
24 My Immortal - Evanescence

"You used to captivate me by your resonating light
Now, I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away all the sanity in me"

Very well written song, not a fan of evanescence but I can't deny a well written song.

It helped me overcome the lost of a beloved one.

Great, evan evanescence is amazing

25 In My Life - The Beatles

God, this song is so good. Talks about real life.
"There are places I remember, all my life though some have changed"... Happens sometimes. The Beatles just rock!

26 Black - Pearl Jam

I know some day you'll have a beautiful life I know you'll be a star in somebody else's sky but why can't it be mine

Best rock love song of all time!

I can't believe I had to add it on my own.

Best song in the history of music!

27 Creep - Radiohead

A beautiful bit of ambiguity. Anyone, no matter who, where or why can listen to this song and make something of it that is deeply personal and relatable.

I believe this song is amazing and, shares great emotion definitely one of my favorites.

The music is awesome, an the lyrics does full justice to it if understood properly.

Best song haha. - Singer4Freedom

28 Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath

Sing me a song, you're a singer
Do me a wrong, you're a bringer of evil
The Devil is never a maker
The less that you give, you're a taker
So it's on and on and on, it's Heaven and Hell, oh well

The lover of life's not a sinner
The ending is just a beginner
The closer you get to the meaning
The sooner you'll know that you're dreaming
So it's on and on and on, oh it's on and on and on
It goes on and on and on, Heaven and Hell
I can tell, fool, fool!

Well if it seems to be real, it's illusion
For every moment of truth, there's confusion in life
Love can be seen as the answer, but nobody bleeds for the dancer
And it's on and on, on and on and on...

They say that life's a carousel
Spinning fast, you've got to ride it well
The world is full of Kings and Queens
Who blind your eyes and steal your dreams
It's Heaven and Hell, oh well
And they'll tell you black is really white
The moon is just the sun at night
And ...more - christangrant

62? This is one of Dio�'s best lyrics!

29 Clint Eastwood - Gorillaz V 1 Comment
30 Hush - Automatic Loveletter
31 Tears - Rush
32 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden

Iron Maiden is where it's at! I would have chosen many more of the songs from Iron Maiden over this one as far as lyrical content, but this was the only one on the list. Take my word for it, people. Iron Maiden, even if you don't like their music, has some of the greatest lyrics ever, especially in the album Brave New World.

I'm an Iranian fan of iron maiden. when I listen to this song, I'm not afraid of listening to a song that is from a different culture. I can feel the words with my heart. I can imagine all the things happening to the guy going to the gallows pole.

Epic lyric climax throughout the song with great sentiment and powerful images. You can feel the agony and energy of the lyrics till the end.

Perfection

33 November Rain - Guns N' Roses

Axl dedicated this song to his ex-wife, Erin Everly.

"But lovers always come
And lovers always go
And no one's really sure
Who's lettin' go today
Walking away
If we could take the time
To lay it on the line
I could rest my head
Just knowin' that you were mine
All mine
So if you want to love me
Then darlin' don't refrain
Or I'll just end up walkin'
In the cold November rain"

very beautiful lyrics - ronluna

This should be number 1 so damn good, love, honest touching the hearts, just can't express my opinion too much heart touching, once again it should be number 1

The mood is so hauntingly addicting! Its so sad but so beautiful to listen to! Axl's voice is so sweet and honest, and the lyrics are so true,
So heart warming!

I love it. - Singer4Freedom

"Do you know how to play hide and seek?
To find me it would take you a week.
But tied to that chair, you won't go anywhere.
There's a lot I can do with a freak..." - MontyPython

40 Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton

You have to be crazy not to pick this one. Clapton wrote some of the most meaningful lyrics as a memorial to the tragic death of his four year old son.

One of the best song ever

So emotional... Really amazing
Very nice song

SHOULD BE IN TOP 5. SUCH MEANINGFUL LYRICS.
