The Most Beautiful Songs of the Rock and Roll Era

The Contenders: Page 12

221 Mocking Bird - Barclay James Harvest

Should be near the top, but won't be since BJH are no doubt unknown to the kind of people who vote in this poll, despite being one of the best bands of all time and very successful all over Europe for the past 47 years.

222 Wind of Change - The Scorpions

Very beautiful song that kinda makes the world not seem so bad.

223 More Than Words - Extreme
224 3 Libras - A Perfect Circle
225 Orestes - A Perfect Circle
226 The Hollow - A Perfect Circle
227 Brena - A Perfect Circle
228 Fiddle and the Drum - A Perfect Circle
229 Coma White - Marilyn Manson
230 The Last Day On Earth - Marilyn Manson
231 And I Love Her - The Beatles
232 Eternity Road - Moody Blues
233 Dreamboat Annie - Heart
234 Goodbye Yellow Brick Road - Elton John
235 Hurt - Nine Inch Nails
236 The Day the World Went Away - Nine Inch Nails
237 The Wicked End - Avenged Sevenfold

Amazing song with so many great qualities: metal guitar and bass riffs, soaring orchestral bridge, and passionate vocals. Most importantly, band unity and cohesion due to the drummer "The Rev," RIP.

238 And You and I - Yes

Both beautiful and powerfully transcendent! Brilliant use by Steve Howe of the pedal steel guitar lift the melody. I think they've played this at almost every full concert.

A very long, progressive song and for that reason nearly never played on the radio, but is a beautiful, poetic classic of love

239 Everlong - Foo Fighters

This is by far the most touching and beautiful song I've ever heard. I'm less rock and more "emo" but this song is my fave by far. Sometimes I cry when I listen to it because it speaks to me so much.

This song has some chilling lyrics, and the beginning riff is one of the most beautiful things to go into my ear.

240 More Than This - Roxy Music
