Best Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 10

181 Awake and Alive - Skillet

Skillet the best Christian rock band

Come on guys, it's Skillet! For crying out loud, vote Vote VOTE!

Once of the first songs apart from Hero that Skillet got Jen Ledger signing in. Her and Jon Coopers voice work so well together. Also the song itself cannot be faulted.

Why THE **** is Skillet so LOW?

182 I Am the Walrus - The Beatles

Best song about everything that doesn't make sense

this is a fantastic song,

semilina custard.... dripping from a dead dogs eye - and it does make sense - we did lyrical analysis a few years ago at school on it

This may be my favorite beatles song. I used to hate it because it's so weird, but now that I'm more into music, I can appreciate it. It's a great song.

If you think this song stinks,you need a Head-Shirker

183 Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day

Such a beautiful song

One of the best songs I've heard definitely should be higher

Beautiful song

Great song

184 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.

185 As Tears Go By - The Rolling Stones
186 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

187 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

188 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!

189 Octavarium - Dream Theater

This must be higher. This song is a masterpiece! 24 minutes of pure musical genius, beauty, and harmony. (That was cheesy)

But seriously, Dream Theater might be a Metal band, which is why this song may not be well recognized, but it's a softer song, amazing singing, lyrics, and solos from literally every instrument. I get chills every time I hear this song. Must listen.

Seriously, everybody needs to listen to this song, it's indescribable - ryanrimmel

I wholeheartedly believe that this song at least deserves to be in the top 10. I understand why it isn't though, coming from a sub-genre (Progressive rock/metal) of a genre (Metal) that is already underrated and overlooked in the public eye. However, for those who truly wish to experience pure musical bliss/perfection, I heavily encourage to give this song a try so that hopefully you, like those who have already discovered it, might understand why this song is so great.

None of the songs above have anything on this. These are popular, but the true masterpieces are left in the dust. This is a perfect example. This song is the most amazing song in the history of life.

The best

190 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

Meaningful. About their late fren (rev) the music very rare..

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

191 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?

192 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

I am not a rock a roll guy, but I can say that this is one song that for every generation they seem to love it when it comes on. Any time a DJ puts this song on at a wedding dance, the dance floor fills and people go crazy. Very surprised this isn't a Top 10.

193 Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler

Bonnie Tyler cuts to the heart with a precise depiction of impossible love and an eerie feeling of hopelessness in her voice that shatters the soul.

it draws you in and then takes you on a roller coaster for the rest of the song. perfect song.

This song is a classic and deserves a much higher spot on the list.

So old, and yet so relevant.

194 Stockholm Syndrome - Muse

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

195 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!

196 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!

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

199 Set Fire to the Rain - Adele

Can I ask you all something? WHY THE HELL IS THIS NOT HIGHER? This is one of the greatest songs ever made and it's probably my favorite Adele song. I hate this stupid "only top 500 for remixes" BS because then songs like this can't get into my remix. It's not fair at all. - DCfnaf

Adele has the most amazing voice EVER! If you have not heard this song of don't like it, you got problems

Great song it needs to go higher - Cartoonfan202
