Top 10 Songs You Discovered Thanks to TheTopTens

Metal_Treasure
People share tons of music on The Top Tens and probably everybody found new songs that liked.
Let's hear these songs.

The Top Ten

1 Pictures of Home - Deep Purple

I probably heard this song before but didn't pay attention to its uniqueness - it has 5 solos on 4 instruments.
I gave it a listen thanks to comments on the list "Top Ten Deep Purple Songs". Now it's one of my favorite Deep Purple songs. - Metal_Treasure

2 Planet Hell - Nightwish

Actually, I found it on YouTube, and is now my second favorite Nightwish song next to Stargazers.

I suddenly liked this song when somebody added it to one of my lists.
By the way, there aren't many metal songs on my current list because I knew lots of metal songs before the Top Tens. I wouldn't say I discovered here a metal song that blew my mind. - Metal_Treasure

Nightwish for the win! - DynastiSugarPop

3 Burn It to the Ground - Nickelback

Never paid attention to Nickelback before the Top Tens but Nickelback were so much criticized and hated that I checked them out. They are not my cup of tea but I fell in love with this song - I love hard rock and this is pure hard rock (not post-grunge). - Metal_Treasure

Lol... Nickelback - ryanrimmel

@ryanrimmel: haha - yes, I liked this song. I should write a post "My life before and after The Top Tens", LOL - Metal_Treasure

4 Pluto - Sleeping at Last

@IronSabbathPriest - I like astronomy, too. I found these planet songs while I was making the list "Top 10 Songs That Mention Names of Planets, Moons, Constellations and Stars In the Title".

I didn't remember the exact title of a Hendrix song with Neptune in the title so I YouTubed "Jimi Hendrix - Neptune" and the correct title was "Valleys of Neptune". But I also noticed the suggested songs by a band that did the whole Solar System! I liked these planet songs and made the list "Best Songs by Sleeping at Last Named After Planets, Stars and Moons".

So astronomy and music, 2 in 1. I love it. - Metal_Treasure

This band and their planet songs are very interesting - considering my passion for astronomy, which may not be as obvious on this site however I've made a few lists related to the subject of astronomy. - IronSabbathPriest

I found it accidentally on YouTube while making a Top 10 list. I also liked their song Saturn and eventually made a Top 10 list about this band (Sleeping at Last). - Metal_Treasure

5 Anya - Deep Purple

Again, I probably heard it before but IronSabbathPriest helped me pay more attention. - Metal_Treasure

6 My Baby's in Love with Eddie Vedder - Weird Al Yankovic

I knew many other songs but not this one - a very funny song, too. - Metal_Treasure

7 Extreme Ways - Moby

I've heard of this song thanks to this list and even though it's not my typical music genre I really liked it. - Metal_Treasure

Speaking of Moby, We Are All Made of Stars was another-ahem-stellar song that I discovered through this site as well (thanks)! - keycha1n

Glad you lot are enjoying this. Have you heard Lie Down In Darkness? - PositronWildhawk

Voting for this simply because it's the only song on this list I discovered through TTT. It's also pretty great. - PetSounds

8 Blackbird - Alter Bridge

Recently found this one, but it wasn't because of this site. I think it's not nearly as good as people make it out to be, but it's still a pretty great song. - Alpha101

9 Runnin' Down a Dream - Tom Petty

I think I heard it on the radio but never knew the artist. Somebody added it to one of my lists and I heard the sample. It's not my type of music but there is something I like in this song - maybe the riff and the rhythm. - Metal_Treasure

10 Evil - Mercyful Fate

The Newcomers

? Right Now - Samantha James

Actually many of her amazing songs!

The Contenders

11 Thank God It's Monday - Nofx

Nothing special but sometimes I like it. - Metal_Treasure

12 A Change of Seasons - Dream Theater
13 Blood and Thunder - Mastodon
14 Holiday - Green Day

Green Day is a very cool band. - DynastiSugarPop

15 Heavy Metal Lover - Lady Gaga

I don't like the song but I like the fact that Lady Gaga mentioned Heavy Metal, haha. Before the Top Tens, I didn't know this song existed. - Metal_Treasure

16 The Poet and the Pendulum - Nightwish
17 Sound of Madness - Shinedown
18 Burn Fast - Bryce Fox
19 Iris - The Goo Goo Dolls

Actually I didn't discover this thanks to TheTopTens. - lolingdog9000

20 Bohemian Rhaspody - Queen
21 Feels Like We Only Go Backwards - Tame Impala

I take sole credit for this. You're all welcome. - PetSounds

22 Shot In the Dark - Within Temptation
23 Thoughts - Michael Schulte
24 Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day

EDIT: I'm changing my mind - somebody added a song I didn't know but liked better than Good Riddance (Extreme Ways - Moby). So Extreme Ways by Moby goes to my Top 10 new songs. Not my type of music in general but a quite pleasant song. I needed some dance songs because you can't dance to metal... - Metal_Treasure

I am running out of ideas - the singer's voice is too nasal to my taste but I can tolerate this song. - Metal_Treasure

25 Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance
26 Art of Life - X Japan
27 Faceless - Red
28 One - Metallca
29 We Are All Made of Stars - Moby

I am adding this on behalf of keycha1n. - Metal_Treasure

30 April - Deep Purple
31 Angels (Love Thy Brother Remix) - The XX

DubstepLover, one thing I am ever thankful for is you introducing me to this track. - PositronWildhawk

32 Limit to Your Love - James Blake

I had heard Retrograde before this, and I really liked it, but back then, I wasn't really into James Blake. This track is one I discovered through TheTopTens, and it made me realise what a fool I was for not being a fan. - PositronWildhawk

33 Come Undone - Robbie Williams
34 Here - Alessia Cara

I took a listen because of the trolls criticizing this, and I actually liked it. For an underrated non-metal/rock song it's really good. - Swellow

35 Basket Case - Green Day
36 Hands to Myself - Selena Gomez
37 Sacred Worlds - Blind Guardian
38 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
39 Morning After - Dead by Sunrise

Mislabeled as a Linkin Park song because the singer of Linkin Park sung for Dead By Sunrise.
