Songs With The Best Lyrics


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Stan - Eminem

There is no word I would change in this song. Touching, and never gets old

Real lyrics, that touches everyone

Powerful and depressing, em is great at telling stories with his somgs

It's a story.
Every single word will make you think, every single rhyme does match,
every verse a masterpiece.
definitely derserves a better place.

82 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!

83 Concrete Angel - Martina McBride

This is a beautiful song and anyone who has been through a form of abuse will cry listening to this song and watching the video, you MUST watch the video.

84 Sorry - Madonna
85 Holy Wars... the Punishment Due - Megadeth

lyrics go like this: "Brother will kill brother, spilling blood across the land, killing for relegion some thing I don't understand. fools like me who cross the sea and come to foreighn land, ask the sheep for their beliefs do you kill on gods command. "etc This list is the worstly arranged list in top tens. People like Jennifer Lopez and Britney Spears don't make good lyrics. Megadeth is really very underrated band. this song is amazing. -

86 Blowin' In the Wind - Bob Dylan

Probably one if not the best anti-war movement songs ever written despite not being the first intention. I'm amazed by how All Along the Watchtower has not appeared yet. It should be number 1.


87 Stargazer - Rainbow
88 Please - Ludo
89 Even the Gods Cry - The Turtlenecks
90 A Little Bit of Everything - Dawes
91 Waterloo Sunset - The Kinks

One of the most beautiful rock songs ever,

One of the most beautiful rock songs ever.

92 Hurt - Nine Inch Nails

Totally love this song - an Johnny Cash' version is just gold

The Johnny Cash Version of this song is awesome!

This song is amazing hands down, and even when another artist like Johnny Cash did it, its hauntingly good. One of my favorites

This is an amazing straight forward lyrics.

93 Numb - Linkin Park

Can't you see that you're smothering me?
'holding to tightly,
Afraid to loose control,
Cause everything that you thought I would be
Is falling apart,
Right in front of you'
Brilliant, for anyone being compared to something bigger

There was a time when I used to hear this song dedicating it to my father...
Don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes...
Just love the lyrics

This song is immaculate very very good song

I guess some technical error but this song is to be at 1st position

I hear this and think of my dad.

I really really love this song. Kelly is my idol and I love her voice
