Best Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 24

461 Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits

The best song from the much underrated bend, the song was written by Mark Knopfler whilst in a bar in South London, the inspiration came from a jazz band playing in the corner of an otherwise deserted pub. The song has a great guitar solo and the lyrics are amazing.

I admit this isn't the best of all time, but come one
This has to be in top 10, maybe in the top 20, but not at all existent?
I mean this song defines what classic rock is
One of the best ever guitar solos
And has anyone ever listened to the live versionS (alchemy and wembley)

totally awesome song, can't believe its not higher - doig3r

Top 20 song..Why so low on the list?

462 All Apologies - Nirvana All Apologies - Nirvana

I could listen to Nirvana forever and not get sick of any of their songs... This one definitely a fave

Absolutely amazing. I have and will never get tired of listening to this masterpiece

One of the many songs that shows you why nobody did it better than Kurt and the boys

All of the Nirvana songs I've heard are great and this is no exception - Ajkloth

463 One - U2 One - U2

Very emotional song, U2 will be my favourite band for a long, long time. Rock on!

One is a truly amazing song - especially in pre-Vertigo Tour live performances with the 'You Hear Us/Me Coming' verse.

Such a beautiful song... it talks about the pain and everything that can matter a person. It's simply touching, so touching that it makes me feel sad even hearing it everyday.

Evergreen with no doubt... great song.

464 Live Forever - Oasis Live Forever - Oasis

Better than hey Jude and any nirvana song

Q magazine called it the 9th greatest song of all time!

465 Time to Say Goodbye - Andrea Bocelli & Sarah Brightman Time to Say Goodbye - Andrea Bocelli & Sarah Brightman

This song brings you to a unbelievably glorious, joyful, as well as far, deep, and away neverland experience... So relaxing yet meaningful...

This song makes me feel hopeful and optimistic, it gives me the push to continue my life delightfully, great voices and great singers.

A time which we all experience, must go through. This song causes me to be aware of where I am at in whatever moment is present. I am inspired to appreciate, enjoy and cherish this, because the 'Time to Say Goodbye' is always there, opening the door to new possibilities while a memory is forever rememebered.

Amazing uplifting song

Great lyrics and singing. It came around the same time as Kurt Cobain's death, so it meant something to a lot of people.

One of the best grunge songs! It used many metaphors for the social decay and dependencies.

Very interesting and good tune

The best song of it's time,Best vocals,Best guitar,Best Bass,Best Drums..From One of the best bands ever!

467 We Belong Together - Mariah Carey We Belong Together - Mariah Carey

Mariah carey we belong together best song of the 00's that high note she hit at the end of the song had to at least be about 4 or 5 octaves I've heard, when I heard that last high note at the end of the song that blew my mind away I was Wowed by the ending of the song more than anything Mariah Carey can hit high notes that only Cats and Dogs can hear from a far away I love her she is a great singer.

An amazing comeback song from one of the best female singers of all time.. a simply classic love song. With the chat success, sales, and popularity to back it up. If this song is at #71 then ten oh her other songs should be higher!

The title is not good for me. Actually, it sounds unappealing. But try to listen to the song itself and the lyrics. It will make you run through the computer and memorize the lyrics and the song. It's simply addictive.!

One of Mariah´┐Ż's best songs ever!

469 Yellow - Coldplay Yellow - Coldplay

I cannot even believe Coldplay isn't even on the list. Chris Martin is a lyrical genius, the stuff he writes is so powerful. This songs is only the beginning to so many.

How come there are hardly any Coldplay songs in the list... Should be easily in top 50. One of the best songs of Coldplay... Beautifully sung, beautiful lyrics, awesomely sung...
What is with you guys...?

Brilliant, Coldplay is the greatest band of these times!

Amazing song!

472 Savior - Rise Against Savior - Rise Against

This may not be the best Rise Against song, but they deserve to have a song in the list, I really love the chorus, gets me really pumped up! - TommyGonzalez

This is a beautiful song. Tim's vocals are perfect, and the entire song flows so well. Maybe not the best song of all time, but it belongs on the list.

Truly amazing song. Amazing lyrics, amazing guitar, amazing everything!

473 The Scientist - Coldplay The Scientist - Coldplay

This is such a great song. Sometimes I cry at the end.

474 Chief Rocka - Lords of the Underground Chief Rocka - Lords of the Underground
475 Smokestack Lightning - Howlin' Wolf Smokestack Lightning - Howlin' Wolf

Lists like this prove that people don't know what constitutes quality or talent. This is raw, powerful, route one genius. Utter genius. To think that the pretentious Queen are rated above this is moronic.

477 Traces - Classics IV Traces - Classics IV
478 Transatlanticism - Death Cab for Cutie Transatlanticism - Death Cab for Cutie
