Songs With The Best Lyrics


The Contenders: Page 7

121 Wonderwall - Oasis

When you listen to it with its music, its just heavenly...

122 Cambodia - Kim Wilde V 1 Comment
123 Where the Wild Roses Grow - Nick Cave
124 Oh! Darling - The Beatles
125 Across the Universe - The Beatles

They're so good, I put the lyrics on a white t-shirt with a black sharpie lol. -

126 Me & My B**** - The Notorious B.I.G.
127 Hello - Evanescence
128 Hey Jude - Paul McCartney (The Beatles)

How come this song is not in the top ten..

129 The Long and Winding Road - The Beatles
130 Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead

Radiohead have the best lyrics ever, they may be depressing but they're good. I'm surprised idolisers isn't on here, they're like the most famous lyrics of all time

Fantastic lyrics best enjoyed through headphones and with eyes closed - emerged in the moment

She lives with a broken man,
A cracked polystyrene man,
Who just crumbles and burns

131 You Raise Me Up - Josh Groban

This is almost Josh's signature tune. This song has very spiritual and emotive lyrics. One of the all-time classics.

Beautiful lyrics and sung in an awesome way... He is not my favourite but this is one of my favourite songs... So inspirational and filled with emotions

I wish I have written this song.! It's one of the best songs ever.

The best song ever written. ;_; Well, in my opinion.

132 Always - Bon Jovi

I cried when I heard it the first time. I cried when I saw a video of them preforming it live - original and acoustic. Jon is singing it with so much emotion and David's keyboards have a special tone in this one... The rest of the band is also doing a great job on this one but the lyrics, the lyrics are so powerful... and I will love you - always.

I'll be there till the star no shine, till the heaven burst and the words no rhyme, I know when I die you will live on my mind and I love you always

133 State of Grace - Taylor Swift

Perfect! She knows how to write a song and State Of Grace it's a good prove of that, you should also look at the lyrics of "All Too Well" (Another Taylor Swift song which I think the lyrics are perfectly well written). People should look a little more far than her commercial songs ("We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together", "I Knew You Were Trouble", "22"), she's truly talented and only an ignorant/hater might disagree with me.

This girls lyrics are an abomination. She needs to do a little more introspection before passing on the slander that she does.

She is the best lyricist I've ever seen! I don't have any words to say how awesome she is... Love You Taylor!

Huh? Don't think so!

134 You Found Me - The Fray

I love the fray, I would describe them as an American coldplay which raises the question, where is "fix you" (by coldplay)? I do disgree with "you found me" being up here this high when their best song by far "howto save a life" is nowhere to be seen!

135 Life on Mars? - David Bowie V 1 Comment
136 Arrab Kaman - Tamer Hosny
137 I Can - Nas

this songs has great lyrics, Nas has won numerous awards of best story teller, and I learnt some new things form a few of the verses - Shazzy_B

138 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin
139 Mr. Tambourine Man - Bob Dylan

MJ is overrated, he was entertaining but come on really you think those are the best lyrics. Bob Dylan's Blowin in the wind is the most amazing song but if I would have voted for that you would never see the comment because your taste in music is so bad you think MJ's lyrics are number one

Their is no way in hell why Bob Dylan should be fourth in this list, bob dylan might have sucked at singing but he is one of the greatest song writers of all time, wait let me rephrase that, he is the greatest song writer of all time, and for all you Jimi Hendrix fans that like him just because he's overrated and number one guitarist on every web site, he used a couple of bob dylans songs because compared to bob dylan Jimi Hendrix sucked - tssumner

Though I know that evening's empire has returned into sand
Vanished from my hand
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping

My weariness amazes me, I am branded on my feet
I have no one to meet
And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming

This should be number 1!

'Bob Dylan might ave sucked a t singing'?!
He was a brilliant singer with an exceptional voice! That mixed with such beautiful lyrics and you know we've got a winner
