Best Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Strobe - deadmau5

Truly the greatest song ever composed. Deadmau5 gives every portion of this near 11 minute song an incredible amount of attention, giving this song a ton of emotion and giving you a strong sense of empowerment. This song brings me close to tears of joy at the beginning, than has me dancing by the beat drop. This is truly music, right here. - kinderfall1

I'm extremely surprised but very happy that this masterpiece made if onto this list. In my opinion, this is top 10 quality. Truly one of the most iconic and most emotionally moving songs I can remember. The full 10 minutes is 3000% worth listening to to get the full feeling. To the top 100 and beyond for deadmau5!

I looked through 5 pages on the slowest wifi ever to find and vote for this. I'm really disappointed with how low this Mona Lisa of edm is on the list. This song will take you on an unforgettable journey. It might be long, it might have no lyrics, but every second of this gem is worth it. You will never hear anything quite like it.

I don't know which song this is. I might know the tune.'does the tune sound like a ghostly remix?

102 I Miss You - Blink 182

just a classic, no other way to describe it. Blink 182 at their best - especially for double singing

Not the best blink 182 song, but it should have been added a lot sooner. This song is one of a kind.

Good song even if you don't like the band

103 Heart-Shaped Box - Nirvana
104 Demons - Imagine Dragons

This song is so beautiful and the lyrics are amazing. It's a song everyone can relate to; passionate and perfect

Imagine dragons is a great band, most of their songs are catchy like Demons, Radioactive, its time etc.

The clanking drum-clap, the burbling guitar, the sinister piano, and the burnt vocals come together so perfectly with the stone cold lyrics. - WonkeyDude98

It's the best

105 Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers

What a song... Soft and complex... Definitely the Chili Peppers Best song.

No, this is not true... The best song by one of the best bands in the world, placed this far! Every aspect of this song is just genius, including the guitar solo, the always amazing Flea bass, Kiedis' performance, and the overall message. I wish it was placed at least in the top 30--It deserves so!

I never get tired of this songs solo, if you focus you feel a slightly feeling of getting stoned.

83? Why 83? Top 20 minimum!

106 Black and Yellow - Wiz Khalifa

BLACK AN YELLOW BLACK AN YELLOW

This a good hip-hop song! "Yeah, uh huh! You know what it is!... Black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow! " :P

107 Highway to Hell - AC/DC

R you crazy ac/dc rules! I demand 4 you to rank it betta man.

The song that explains the life most of us live or want to live. The best song from the best band that ever walked across the stage. Bon Scott will live forever in his music!

Bon Scot is no doubt the most legendary singer of the 80's and the opening guitar riff makes you feel like your actually on a highway to hell

acdc sucks

108 How to Save a Life - The Fray

one of those songs that just everyone knows by word.

This is one of the best soft rock songs from 2000-present. it should be at least at number between number #10-#15

This is an amazing song that lots of people could realate to, it is very catchy so most people can sing along to it. The song has a great course especialy "where did I go wrong I lost a friend somewhere along in the bitterness" and I think lots of people can relate to losing a friend

Decent

109 Carry on Wayward Son - Kansas

A classic song, with nothing but perfection. A song of hope, a song of peace, a song of comfort. I would give this song a 10. Great job Kansas.

This is one of the greatest and one of my favorite songs of all time. Everybody knows it and loves it. Please, PLEASE vote for this to be higher on the list.

Are you serious. There is absolutely no way there are 214 better songs that this classic. I won't say the top, because of other genres and other classics, but at least top 20. So much better than anything done by Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Black Sabbath, etc. - esaoud

Man I surprised this song did not beat thriller
But that is just my opinion.

One of the Best Songs EVER!
Out of the best film too
- Shubbie999

Love the band, not sure why steven tyler had to judge in AI. Lots of their songs are great. Simple but it'll stay in you forever.

Good song

111 What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

With out doubt one of the greatest songs ever play this song aloud while sitting on your porch and you will see why this song is so awesome Louis Armstrong and this song deserve to be carried on from generation to generation. I was shocked when I saw this song wasn't even in the top 200 it deserves to be in at least the top 50

This is probably the most classic song there is. How is it not one of the best songs in the world? This song has so much meaning to it, it's beautiful, and it links us back to a long time ago, when it was written and performed. This shouldn't just not be on the list.

With it's dated sound and curious vocals I must say that this song gives the world hope. Every Child should hear this in their musical development as a lot of today's music is overproduced noise that is focused on image and not substance.

This song should be reccomended to the ones struggling with there questions. Is God real? Nobody knows but listening to it will make you think more open and wide

112 Drive - Incubus

An amazing song that people should really pay attention to! "Take the wheel and drive", take control of your life, you are an unlimited being and are capable of achieving anything u desire!

I love this song!!!just as much as i love brandon boyd!!!hes freakin' hot!too bad hes taken. But this song is beatiful and i love it!

A really good song, just listen to it and you'll fall in love with it

Great song by Incubus.

113 California Dreamin' - The Mamas & The Papas

I can't believe this song isn't on here. The song is #89 in Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, and it's been covered by every artist imaginable.

It's my favorite song of all time because I love California, the timeless, soul-warming melody that is both sad and hopeful and makes me tear up every time I hear it.

Just Love the Mommas and the Poppas

I would've thought the beach boys version would be on here but this is a great song

Good Song by the Mamma and the Papas!

114 Moment of Surrender - U2
115 Hall of Fame - The Script

This song makes me motivated, give out the energy deep in me unlike any other song. It should be at least top 30, this place is not suitable for a song that lifts you up the way it does.

"Standing in the hall of fame! And the world's gonna know your name... Cause you burn with the brightest flame! " this song is fantastic, it EMPOWERS you..

This is a song that tells you that anyone can make it to the top if they try. And it sends out a message that everyone is a champion. There is no first or last there is just you and your talent

Sing song is amazing! it really shows how any ordinary person can have brilliant talents.

119 Estranged - Guns N' Roses

One of the most underrated songs of all time. Should be in top 10 in my mind.

Love this song, any song that last more than 8 minutes and still get you is a master piece

Hands down, one of the rarest masterpiece

120 Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve

Just absolutely fantastic, incredible lyrics, uplifting mood, fits into so many situations, just fantastic

Oh My God. HOW is this song all the way down here?! It's one of my favourite songs, I just can't stop listening. I have no idea why this list is so crappy. WHERE is the Paramore?! Is it even possible not to like it?! Also, Smells Like Teen Spirit should totally be no.3, after Bittersweet Symphony and Misery Business. So a word of warning to the creator of this list: Change it or I will bite you. HARD.

One of best lyrics EVER! it's too emotional and realistic, really that song has to be in top ten =S!

Perhaps my most favourable tune in the world.
