61 Eye of the Tiger - Survivor

Love it, just love it!

62 Halo - Beyonce

This song is so amazing! My favorite Beyonce' song ever. It has so much power and the words are beautiful! I just love it! Should be further up!

Beautiful song... If you ever have built walls to protect yourself and later have it broken down by someone... Well this is your anthem!

Very touching, reaches some kind of divine stratosphere in my soul. Powerful enigmatic!

Too good both to hear n watch...

63 Maggots Ate Her Brain - The Lurking Corpses
64 Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen

Listen to the lyrics and the way that there is no set meaning to this song. Each time you listen you hear something else. It talks of love, loss, god, man, failure and transcendence. The lyrics to this song are truly divine with biblical references. This song is a one of a kind. It will never be replicated or replaced. Leonard Cohen is a master of songwriting and this is his greatest hit.

Love this song, better by jeff buckley

A song that gets deeper when you listen again.

A stunning work of art. My all time favourite song

65 A Day in the Life - The Beatles

Next to imagine this is my favorite song. I was the one who put "This song is so good that person who killed john even sang this song except for one new lyric"
"Imagine John Lennon is Dead." I mean who would say this!
Third is here there and everywhere than let it be and last but not least Give peace a chance. - SBT

This song is the best ever written by Lennon & McCartney together. Every part of this song was perfectly arranged. Just brilliant... Maybe the best ever.

The other 99 of you obviously haven't even heard it otherwise this would be at the top, way above crap like Eminem and Michael jackson

Arguably the best song by (hardly arguably) the best band in the world. Also some of the best lyrics lennon has written, far superior to the obvious preacherism of "imagine", which doesn't state anything we all didn't know already.

66 The Unforgiven - Metallica

Not the best lyrics I've ever heard but it should be at least in the top 14. Go Metallica!

The lyrics, in my opinion are the best, touchy, feely and not to mention heartly, its definitely one of the best lyrics

67 Waiting for My Real Life to Begin - Colin Hay
68 Evil Angel - Breaking Benjamin
69 Never Gonna Give You Up - Rick Astley

I know there are plenty of other songs that have way better lyrics, but, come on! It's the Rick-roll! - RiverClanRocks

What a bag of unimaginative, bland and talentless vomit.

Star of brition in the 80s trust me

70 God Only Knows - The Beach Boys

One of the most meaningful songs ever written

Best ever love song

71 Both Sides Now - Joni Mitchell
72 Shelter From the Storm - Bob Dylan
73 Headstrong - Trapt

I don't know why this is on the list...I mean the lyrics are not bad but I've seen and heaed much better...just weird..

74 Summer, Highland Falls - Billy Joel
75 Be Yourself - Audioslave
76 Dear God - XTC
77 Anthem - Iced Earth
78 So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold

This song is for their best friend the Rev. Such an emotional and beautifully put together song with real meaning and purpose behind it. FoREVer

Amazing song, so meaningful... Top 10 at least... - ImagineACoolUsernameHere

Amazing lyrics, top ten at least...

This is a very beautiful song. - The01Bro

79 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

The best song I love it

A song that devines al about its generation

These were satirical lyrics. they make no sense. kurt just wanted to use the phrase ''smells like teen spirit" in a song because he liked it so much. not much lyrical content to be honest.

It's not very meaningful or anything but it's lyrics are too damn awesome
"And I forget just why I taste
Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile
I found it hard, it's hard to find
Oh well whatever, never mind"

80 Give Me a Sign - Breaking Benjamin

"I can see you starting to break, I'll keep you alive if you show ke the way... Day light dies, black out the sky, does anyone care, is anybody there. take this life, empty inside, I'm already dead, I'll rise to fall again..." Awesome lyrics!
