Best Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 10

181 Stayin' Alive - Bee Gees

I'm a huge fan of the bee gees & This is undoubtedly their best, one of the most popular songs of all time
Vocals of all three gibbs' is just mind blowing in this song not to mention the ecstatic beats that were looped from their other single "Night Fever"

Have you people never seen Saturday Night Fever?

Yes, this is the BEST song ever. Why in the world is it not #1?

This should be in the top ten why is it 248!

183 Buddy Holly - Weezer Buddy Holly - Weezer

229 eh? What's not to love about this song?

184 Numb / Encore - Jay Z & Linkin Park Numb / Encore - Jay Z & Linkin Park

An amazing song deserves to be higher

The overrated duo have combined. - swagmaster97

Wow I love this song so much and I never thought it would be here this needs to be higher!

This is the best song by Linkin Park with jay z must be under top 30

185 Aerials - System of a Down Aerials - System of a Down

Best System of a Down song for sure.

186 On Top of the World - Imagine Dragons On Top of the World - Imagine Dragons

WHAAAT?!?!?! 202?!?!? This song is too good to be in the 200's! "i'm on top of the world and I know, it's a long way up cause it's a long way down! Get up now! Get up! Get up now! " Dove Cameron sang this song too!

Nah, we need to put Elton John, Celine Dion, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, and many more on the top 100 before we deal with Imagine Dragons. But to be honest, Coldplay should be higher than Imagine Dragons. - okcnaline

I don't know if any others people like this but I like it

This song encourage me in the hardest times. It makes me wnat to climb every mountain. Another perfect song from Imagine Dragons

Favourite U2 song ever. Should be in top ten

188 Thnks Fr Th Mmrs - Fall Out Boy Thnks Fr Th Mmrs - Fall Out Boy V 1 Comment
189 Knights of Cydonia - Muse Knights of Cydonia - Muse

The singing and guitar riffs go perfectly together, and the drumming fits in just as well

This song is an amazing rock song that deserves a higher spot on the list. It has a great guitar, bass, drums, and outstanding vocals!

Kick ass riffs, amazing vocals, awesome drumming, great bass and one of the best songs live, EVER! This should definitely be first place.

190 You Shook Me All Night Long - AC/DC

bloody amazing song, AC/DC kick ass. don't know a band and bounced back from such a tragedy as the death of their singer.
THEY ROCK! - twosup

Here is the question... How many times can a song get you laid and not be at the top of (at least) your personal list? Bottom line, this song has served me well. This song goes to the inner neanderthal in all of us.

simple, the best song AND video of all the time, I love AC/DC since Colombia - JuandaColombia

191 Tom Sawyer - Rush Tom Sawyer - Rush

540?! Are you serious? I mean, there are plenty of other good songs on this list, but Rush is the best band ever formed (hands down), and this is their best song! If this doesn't go higher, I think I'll mean mean cry!

I love RUSH. They are indeed great. They are not the greatest band of all time. That would be the Beatles. This is however possibly one of the (if not the) greatest rock songs of all time.

Today's Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the space he invades
He gets by on you

No his mind is not for rent
To any god or government
Always hopeful, yet discontent
He knows changes aren't permanent
But change is

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the witness, catch the wit
Catch the spirit, catch the spit - htoutlaws2012

This is the best rush song made. Still not that good though

192 Jeremy - Pearl Jam Jeremy - Pearl Jam

Somehow my favorite song is ranked lower than my least favorite song: Fancy by Iggy Azalea. How did that even make the list? - Songsta41

I love this song. It's the absolute best. Just THE best. - Songsta41

Great song with such a sad story

194 1979 - Smashing Pumpkins 1979 - Smashing Pumpkins

Immortal song. Not like all of the crappy songs up there you listen 3 times and switch to something else.

I am in utter disbelief that this is not in the top 100. This song is haunting and amazing. Gangnam Style is ahead of this... By a lot... That should tell you a lot bout people these days.

Great song! Is every losing their minds? 223,not except-able!

195 Car Radio - Twenty One Pilots

If Eminem can get in the top ten, so can TØP. Their lyrics deal with the meaning of existence, free will, the power of religion, the need to stay alive and what thought really means. That's laid over an immense, almost cinematic marriage that's brutally simple: synth, drums and hope, combining in endless swirls and flourishes that reward every listen. Car Radio isn't a song, it's a landscape of hope and fear and dreams. It's existentialism voiced. It's the dreams of today. Car Radio is a musical masterpiece.

This song right here is truly amazing the way it relates to everyone. The use of symbolism is brilliant.

This song deserves a spot in at least the top 50 - YOUnique253

196 Rap God - Eminem Rap God - Eminem

How is this not higher up? Its built on pure talent

Another Eminem Track Hit The Charts And this time its Rap God one of the most Downloaded songs Ever with Eminems HiGh Speed Rap

I love this song. It's lyrical genius. Put this up against Jay-Z or Kanye West, it's not only the speed (I memorized it, it's at aprox. 4:25) but how it isn't the same lyrics repeated in every line. *cough* Nikki Minaj stupid ho *cough* *cough*

197 Because of You - Kelly Clarkson Because of You - Kelly Clarkson

Thanks for reminding me to get this on the old ipod! Happy ears! A song everyone can relate.

Such a beautiful and meaningful song!

198 The Battle of Evermore - Led Zeppelin The Battle of Evermore - Led Zeppelin

This is such a great song, one of their best. It's mellow and has some great tunes and I love the whole theme of the song. One of my favorites.

I've never heard a song better then this one...Period!
