8 Baba O'Riley - The Who

This song makes me think HARD. But then as always, due to the excitement at the end, I smile. - MontyPython


9 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

I just remember sitting in my dorm room like it was yesterday, listening to this song and thinking about where I've been and where I'm going in life. There have been multiple times WYWH has provoked so much emotion it has brought me to tears. Beautiful song, perfectly orchestrated.

10 November Rain - Guns N Roses

The Contenders

11 The Unforgiven - Metallica
12 Imagine - John Lennon

I LOVE this song, It makes me think about how the world is made, and who we really are.
This song should definitely be here, It rocks. Also, John Lennon's voice just makes it even more magical, The Beatles is my favourite band of all time, And John Lennon was in it, Until he got shot by a little darn cabbage head.

If everyone could just take a moment to consider these powerful words, then imagine what the world could truly be.
The world could use a change.
You can become that change in this world by being one of those few people who take a moment to consider the words of this song.

Love this one. If only everyone took a second to imagine what John says

I adore the Beatles, but John Lennon, even alone, is one of the best in my book. This song just opens your eyes,and when you listen it puts you in a kid of trance. "Imagine" just opens your mind and imagination.

passing by
making me cry

I cannot stay
I am his slave
filling my grave
leaving me
letting me be
before anything's done
it's already gone

I thought of this while hearing time, by the way. - waldo
