Best Songs: 241-260

The Contenders: Page 13

241 President Carter - Lil Wayne

This song is dreadful - Ajkloth

242 Photograph - Nickelback

I saw those "Look at this photograph" videos.

243 Like a Prayer - Madonna

I just love it. The gospel choir the music style everything perfect best song ever

Definitely my favorite song of all-time. The song was brilliant for its time and a huge risk for a pop star like Madonna. Going back to when it came out, this song sounded like nothing else that was happening back then and nobody ever thought its sound was "mainstream" enough to relate to the public. It has stood the test of time.

Amazing! Should be ranked higher! Song is yearning and passionate in only a way Madonna can deliver!
Madonna and a few other artists I love has unique voice. Her voice and the words of this song fit perfectly.

I've been a Madonna fan for over 30 years and am amazed this song isn't in the Top Ten! The woman is an icon. I've seen her perform this song live twice and she is amazing. Love this song.

244 Piano Man - Billy Joel

My favorite song, cheerful and comforting!

It's impossible to get rid of this song once it has entered your mind, and it's impossible to get bored! Go Billy Joel! And go Piano Man! (Hey man what are you doing here? )
Lalala lalala ;)

This is the greatest song of all time it has been my favourite song ever since I could remember it captured the hearts of millions this is the best song of all time!

I heard it last weak on the radio, and I loved it from the first second till the last second, I'm listening it the whole day now!

Legit nostalgia...

245 Supper's Ready - Genesis

This song took me about half an hour to find, and by the end my index finger hurt from scrolling too much, but I new from the beginning this was my choice. To see it in 1072nd place is quite shocking. Being a teenager I feel I can truly evaluate modern music against its slightly older counterparts, but even Genesis as a whole didn't show up until the 953rd position. Them, as a group, being this low on the list, is, to me, a disgrace to the human race.

Best song ever, no doubt, even if very few really know Peter Gabriel's Genesis, they're the best band ever in term of pure quality, and this is the best song they made.

One of the few 20+ minute songs that doesn't bore, annoy, or wear on me. I could listen to this song all day - musicman4

*sighs* why don't people understand what good music is anymore... it is so sad that this song has almost entirely passed out of knowledge, and for one very simple reason: it is too long. Which is ironic since that is one of things which makes it so good
(Note: I actually rank this 2nd on my all time list, behind "Here Comes the Flood" - Peter Gabriel (Greatest Hits version) however obviously virtually no one shares my view on that) - JonnyMoo

246 The End - The Doors

This is simply the greatest piece of music ever created, period. Anyone who votes for anything else has not listened to this song. Nothing else has ever come close to The End in terms of pure brilliance.

Amazing lyrics. Jim rocks!

247 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.

248 March of the Black Queen - Queen

Two Words: BEST SONG ever!

It's not letting me add it to my remix. Please vote this up, it's one of the best songs ever made. - DCfnaf

Best song of all time!

So low 0_0 - _Jack_

249 Gangnam Style - Psy

In response to one of the commenters wondering why this wasn't in the list: The only list where this song belongs is the list of the worst songs of all time, and it is indeed in the top 10 of that list. It is almost a caricature to how decadent our society has become. The worst part, is that some people like it. Most viex on YouTube though are from people who wanted to have a good laugh.

Really good to dance 2

This thud is popular because it's stupid - malamJONES

192 songs better than Gangman Style?!? I don't think so!

250 F***** Perfect - P!nk
251 Hot N Cold - Katy Perry

It is not my favorite song but I like it and it is really catchy.

252 All the Shine - Childish Gambino
253 Working Man - Rush
254 Don't Stay - Linkin Park

Damn I'm so pissed at humanity. While this of course isn't the best song ever this is still an amazing song and it is definitely better than most popular songs today.

255 Call Me When You're Sober - Evanescence
256 Song of the Century - Green Day
257 Everlong - The Foo Fighters

This Song is my favourite song ever made. It is just beautiful! I listen to a ton of bands ranging from punk to light rock to deathcore and I really have no favourite band but without a doubt this song is my favourite. It's just so good and so well put together. It really makes you stop to think about all the good things in your life and give you the courage to live through every day. This being below Party Rock Anthem makes me want to shoot myself with a gun by the way lol.

Fantastic, Powerful, Consuming. This song Is a milestone by the Foo Fighters by far, and is super addictive. Yet the meaning is still so simple (Love) and is summarized in the first line "Hello, I've waited here for you, Everlong"

Everlong is definitely the most beautiful song for me. So passionate, so perfect. Dave Grohl actually made a perfect song I think. If you ever checked out Everlong live at wembley, everyone will fall in love with that song.

They are the best band I've ever heard but this is not my favorite song by them my favorite is "one of these days" but out of the choices they have I picked everlong.

258 She Will Be Loved - Maroon 5

There is just so much emotion and realism in this poem, its is awesome!


Maroon Five sucks now, but I thought they were really good at first. I have no problem with early Maroon 5 stuff being on this list.

(I don't think I have heard this one before)

259 Runaway - Kanye West

Just too good. The song speaks for itself should be in top 100 or 50

This song is pure perfection, it's so beautiful and yet brutally honest

This should be in top 20

260 We are the World - U.S.A. for Africa

It is difficult to choose the best song in Michael Jackson's legacy. All his songs are unique and breathtaking. The hymn "We Are the World" definitely deserves our recognition.

This should be also in the list because of the lyrics that can touch any heart of all mankind. And it got a revival version where many of the popular artist this time has do it for the people who needs help.

288! am I see right?

• Lionel Richie
• Stevie Wonder
• Paul Simon
• Kenny Rogers
