Best Songs: 221-240

The Contenders: Page 12

221 Manta Ray - J. Ralph and Antony
222 Irvine - Kelly Clarkson
223 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

So incredibly beautiful.
Rest in peace, my lovely musical hero. You are a genius, David, and your music will live on forever.

224 Closer - Nine Inch Nails

NIN are a force to be reckoned with what a band what a song

Without a doubt the sexiest song of all time.

I came so hard to this

Gotta agree. This song grabs you the first time you hear it and never let's go. Brilliant. The perfect mix of industrial and dark dance club samples. Definitely in my Top 20 all time. The remix at the beginning of the movie Se7en, is spooky. - Ned964

225 The Final Countdown - Europe

Just an amazing song, love it!

This song is awesome. Why is it so far from top 10?

I'm voting for it because my favorite song is already #1. How is this song down here? I ' love it - PeeledBanana

Come on, it should be at the top 10 people! - Yungstirjoey

226 Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne

Simply the best, ozzy has been going at it since the beginning of metal and is still rocking. Long live the prince of darkness!

This is Ozzy's signature song for a reason. It talks about the dangers of drugs and it has some kick ass guitar riffs. This is definitely one of his best hits! I love you, Ozzy!

I loves this song. Its hard rock with just a touch of insanity. My only real issue with this song though is it is not higher on this list. I mean seriously its hard core epicness. :D I say it should be number one.

That guitar riff is just so good - Disturbedpotato

227 Hysteria - Muse

Uprising at 126 and Hysteria at 129; to be honest Showbiz should be at number 1 and Micro Cuts at number 2 (both by Muse, the only band whose transcends transcends vocal description), but I'll vote for Hysteria because it's better than Uprising and *needs* to go up.

Best rock song I've ever heard

What about this song?

This is true mucic! Great riffs + Matts awesome vocals= u just gotta listen this all day. Muse is the best band on Earth. Other songs from Muse:

Knights of Cydodia
Unnatural Selection
Panic Station
Follow me
Supermassive black hole
Plug in baby
Time is runnig out

228 Dogs - Pink Floyd

You've gotta be crazy not to include this song.

Amazing song with stunning solos by Gilmour along with great lyrics and should be much higher on this list. Pink Floyd's best along with The Gunner's Dream and Echoes.

Dogs should be in the top 10, pink Floyd's best song

Waaay too far down on this album. This song is profound and absolutely insane

229 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

333, really? Seeing that Michael Jackson, Beatles and G&R (who are undoubtedly great artists, but honestly, there are not gods or something) all have around 10 songs in the top 100 while one of the greatest and most influential metal bands of all time has their first song at 333 is just sad. While BTROD is not their best song, it's just beautiful. It has both chilling and hard sections and a godly guitar solo. No hate against the other artists, but this should at least be 50.

This song should be near stairway to heaven it's just as epic

Not one of my favorite priest songs but it was the first I found on the list an its at 316 that's rediculousy low even for just this song it's got a good solo 2 good one in fact and great lyrics

Ahead of Judas Priest are Notorious BIG and even KPOP artists. SAD :(

Not just Judas Priest Beyond the Realms of Death, but there are way more Judas Priest, rock and metal songs, classical music, folk, and oldies music that should be filling the top spots instead of Pop (with the exception of Michael Jackson) and rap (though I think Gangster's paradise is a decent song)

230 Hero - Skillet

Really uplifting and awesome songs

This is my favorite skillet song

2nd top song in my rock list 1st is it's my life bon jovi

Skillet makes me so happy.Skillet has so much meaning in their songs.

231 Ashes to Ashes - David Bowie

Bowie is one of the absolute best. The whole Scary Monsters album was fantastic.

The highest song by David at 302. THERE'S NO JUSTICE!

Not the Best David Bowie song. But still great.

So good even a T.V. show was made after it. If you haven't seen this show then watch it.

232 Somewhere Over the Rainbow - Judy Garland

This song is one of the best if not the best classic songs. Judy Garland, Louis Armstrong, Israel Kamakawiwo'ole. Forever a classic!

Great Song sung by many people! I especially like Is version

Yes. Super classic and beautiful

This is a classic. Put it higher. - okcnaline

233 Wake Me Up - Avicii

This is absolutely unfair to AVICII!

This is the best of avicii

He doesn't sing any of his songs

Wake me up
Can't wake up inside
Wake me up
Save me

234 We Found Love - Rihanna

I Love this song it gives me a good feeling

It's just a repeating song the whole time

If you think this is the only thing of this song you have zero taste in music, the base is perfect, Rihanna's voice is stunning and it has so much meaning. - DaisyandRosalina

I love the video for this song!

235 The Trooper - Iron Maiden

You'll take my life but I'll take yours too
You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when you're waiting for the next attack
You'd better stand there's no turning back - htoutlaws2012

What how is this beauty below 700!?

237? Hopefully we can get it to top 100 - Disturbedpotato

The greatest song from the greates band.

236 Simple Man - Lynyrd Skynyrd

This song made me cry 4 times. It reminds me of my mom that passed. I would put this as number 1 for sure!

The best 3 chord song ever! Top 20.

237 When the Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin

This song is really good. Good from most of the songs in top 100. And quite underrated too. I suggest you to give it a try. You will like it for sure. I is among the best songs by Led Zeppelin.

Bonham's drumming, Plant's vocals, and the sheer thickness and heaviness of this song makes it the best.

The intro blows my mind even after the a millionth time. This song combines the four best musicians into a blues masterpiece.

Best led Zeppelin song this should be number one

238 Madness - Muse

I just can't believe that this song is not on this list. I think this song is just beyond awesome.

239 Photograph - Nickelback

I saw those "Look at this photograph" videos.

240 Suburban Train - Tiesto
