307 The River - Bruce Springsteen The River - Bruce Springsteen

It's one of the most devastating songs I've ever heard. He builds the story beautifully until he completely breaks your heart with "now those memories come back to haunt me, they haunt me like a a dream a lie if it don't come true, or is it something worse? " The theme of the song, the lyrics, melody and the way Bruce feels it and sings it all make this song a masterpiece. This one deserves to be in top 30!

It is a really good song and should definitely be put on the list for people to vote for. It is a major part of his music career and should be shared throughout the world.

Less than David Guetta. No words. Just... sad.

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*

320 Lateralus - Tool

Lateralus. The album, the song, sheer genius. Allow me to explain. You see in music each line is comprised of measures and these measures affect how the timing in the song occurs such as the pulses and the drum beats etc. Most songs stay in either 4/4, 2/4, or 8/8 time signature, meaning four beats for every measure, etc. This songs chorus, comprised of three lines, descends by a beat each line. Thus you have 9/8 for the first line, 8/8 for the second line, 7/8 for the final line. If you thought THAT was crazy, that is only the beginning. You see, Lateralus is the title track for Tool's 2001 album "Lateralus. " Now Lateralus in and of itself was a complex song, and most fans thought it a bit awkward the way the syllables were laid out in the verses. This song actually acts as a gateway to a re-structuring of the albums tracks for a "Holy Gift" (as it is known by their fanbase). You see on The Holy Gift version, each track leads perfectly and coherently into the ...more

The most technical band that I have ever listened to. There should be more tool on this list

This is must hear song, the greatest song ever that created by tool. Maynard is very genius artist

Personally I like Pushit most, but this is definitely deserving to be higher on this list.
