Best Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 10

181 The Veldt - Deadmau5

One of the most beautiful EDM songs of all time.

The fact that this was based on a James Thurber makes this one a true piece of art. And that's saying a lot considering this is an EDM song.

182 When the Music's Over - The Doors

My favorite doors song of all tome. I want to hear the scream of a butterfly. I want it NOW

A classic song from the doors. Should be up a bit higher. - matty925

183 Ill Mind of Hopsin 5 - Hopsin

Absolute hidden gem in the hip hop community. I've listened to pretty much all that the rap genre has to offer and Hopsin's Ill Mind of Hopsin 5 is undoubtedly one of the greatest hip hop songs ever.He's rapping about REAL ISSUES in today's world including teen drug abuse/teen pregnancy and has some of the best delivery/flow/lyrics of any rapper I've ever heard.

Good good good song

184 Creep - Radiohead


This song will never bore you and when you sing it, you will fell release. The tune is rightly expression of the lyrics. It deserves to be on top of the list. It is a rare piece.

Love the emotion of the vocal and the lyric, it is really rare to find song like this. Sadly undervalued in this chart.

Best song ever!

185 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

Love this song. I have heard all of A7Xs songs, and as much as I love ALL of them, this one takes the top.

Amazing vocals from m shadows, fantastic lead guitar from synyster, brilliant rhythm to match from zacky, outrageous drumming from portnoy and the rev, plus great bass from johnny to complete it. Top song, best no doubt


Dragged ya down below
Down to the devil's show

Flesh is burning
Until the end of time here
Nothing stops the madness,
Turning, haunting, yearning
Pull the trigger

You should have known
The price of evil
And it hurts to know
That you belong here, yeah
Ooh, it's your nightmare! - htoutlaws2012

I love Avenged Sevenfold, and this is my favorite sevenfold song

186 Nights in White Satin - Moody Blues

"if your over 35"? I'm 14 and I know and love this song. - alucard

One of the best songs ever for soothing the pain of unrequited love

If you're over the age of 35, shame on you if you don't know the words to this one!

Now how in over 300 Best of the Best songs, No one posted this one? But every one here Knows it! Right?

187 Life on Mars? - David Bowie

Find this song, press play and then close your eyes. That is the only way you can possibly understand the greatness, depth and genius of this song.

This is the song that for me has the one of the best tunes with great use of the piano. But wait till you've listened to those epic vocals!

Seriously? Why isn't this on here? It's the best song ever! It makes me cry. It deserves to be on the top ten at least

I saw this as No. 1 on another list. Now I'm a Bowie fan, but I thought that a bit much. Can't argue with ith it's ingenuity, as I agree Bowie invented the whole Glam rock thing, and this song was a huge part of it. RIP David - Ned964

188 In My Life - The Beatles

Timeless piece of art. Always soothing at the end of the day. Must listen to Beatles especially this song and Day in the Life.

The Beatles would have to be my favorite bands of all time, and this would hav to be my favorite song. It is probably the best song ever recorded.

This has to be my favorite Beatles song, although there is so much to choose from. Rubber Soul is an amazing album that is kind of a bridge to the time when the Beatles' music went from yeah, yeah, yeah to being more serious. This is the first of what are generally accepted as their best albums, including Revolver, the white album, Sgt. Peppers, Magical Mystery Tour, and Abbey Road.



guys, this a great song, possibly the greatest Beatles song, but one of the most underrated. I love this song so much

189 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

190 Mr. Blue Sky - Electric Light Orchestra

I'd agree this innovative band has many better songs. "Showdown" would be a great place to start. Great harmony and obviously orchestral accompaniment with this band. - Ned964

This song is my absolute favorite. It's groovy, it's poetic, it's soulful and it's an instant mood-lifter. Should be much higher on this list.

It's a good song but the band has many other underrated hits

A very uplifting song great rhythm catchy lyrics and a brilliant end to a

191 Stockholm Syndrome - Muse

God how I love this song! Didn't vote for it, but had to comment something.

192 Roar - Katy Perry

Why is this on the list? It's the most annoying song of all time.

This is the dumbist katy perry song don't you think.

I am a 8 year-old boy and I had to sing it in front of everyone. This song made me want to kill katy perry. - lizard302

Wow. Never heard this song, and after reading those comments, I doubt I ever will. Just trashed the poor girl - Ned964

193 Careless Whisper - Wham!

If you never heard this song you need to go find and listen to it.This song has a smooth touch to it. - wideup

I always wondered, what's with ropes in the video? Anyway, great song

A day wont pass without hearing this song
Far better than most of the above songs


Definitely deserves a position in the top ten...
Love you GEORGE Michael and your sweet voice!

194 Firework - Katy Perry

Firework is the most successful song to give inspirations to people. This song is familiar with the song, Beautiful by Christina Aguilera. It tells about just perform and do your own way, no matter how. Don't care about what they say 'cause it doesn't matter.

An inspirational song from a worldwide famously known funny singer, A song encouraging the disabled to realize the importance of their life by putting themselves in the best glow of their life like a Firework.

It's beautiful and meaningful song inspiring people that everybody are special

Best song next to 'Roar! ' Hats off to Katy Perry!

195 The Times They Are A-Changin' - Bob Dylan

Bob dylan the times they are a changin

This song is great. It was played on watchmen at the beginning. Such a great song.

Shows that nothing has changed

196 Bad Blood - Taylor Swift

I've never even heard this song, and know very little about Taylor Swift. But I noticed the comments were deeply divided on this song. Either the people loved her or hated her. I've heard she writes her own music and lyrics, which is somewhat unusual for a pop artist, so clearly she has some talent anyway I think I will give this a listen when I'm off this site and see what all the hubbub is about. - Ned964

What the hell is crap like this even doing here?

Taylor swift doesn't deserve this list
