121 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

122 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.

124 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!

125 Moment of Surrender - U2
126 Everybody Wants to Rule the World - Tears for Fears
127 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.

128 Estranged - Guns N' Roses

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

Hands down, one of the rarest masterpiece

130 Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen is the best Rock & Roll singer ever! Every time he makes a new song or album; he makes a masterpiece. Born to run is a one of his best songs along with the river, thunder road, Tougher than the rest, bobby jean, born in the USA = I could continue for hours. He deserves to be in top 10 at least with one of the mentioned songs. Instead of being number 108, that is ridiculous.. Just my opinion - Rock & Roll and the boss for Life!

It's true, BtR in the Top 10! But we know: Bruce doesn't use drugs, alcohol, he's not suicide and he hasn't long hair. But we know his live concerts!

"The highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
Everybody's out on the run tonight
but there's no place left to hide"

This song should be in the top 10.

Should be way higher on the list.

131 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.

What about this song?

Best rock song I've ever heard

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

132 Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles

Well, the Beatles at number 3. Some of you hardcore Beatles fans might be furious at me for not putting "A Day in the Life" or "Let It Be" at number 1. Again, it's my opinion. Anyways, amazing message that is sent out in this song. This was one of the greatest Beatles songs ever made undoubtedly. The violins bring anticipation when they gradually get louder, and the vocals from the band when they sing the chorus bring delight to my ears. Truly a masterpiece.

Wait a second... This song was once NUMBER 3 on this list? It's been voted down to below PARTY ROCK ANTHEM to 117? How can this be? Is this what the world is coming to? - VaticanCameos

I've always loved the Beatles, and I'm twelve. Almost thirteen. and Eleanor Rigby is one of my favorites. It's beat is so cool.

As people said the Beatles are just above any competition or silly list. Too many of their songs can be on this lst.

BEEDLES I love you
