The Most Beautiful Songs of the Rock and Roll Era

The Contenders: Page 2

21 California Girls - The Beach Boys California Girls - The Beach Boys
22 Yesterday - The Beatles Yesterday - The Beatles

This is my 3rd favorite song of all time. I was going to vote for You are not Alone by MJ but I just had to make sure Yesterday was here! This has to be number 1!

This absolutely deserves to be higher - was gonna vote for "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen for the same reason but this is historically significant as well.

One of the best songs ever written! Everything about this song is wonderful!

23 The Kill - 30 Seconds to Mars The Kill - 30 Seconds to Mars

It is an amazing song.

If you truly listen to this song and hear and understand the lyrics, then you can feel the desperation of the meanig and it brought tears to my eyes more than once.

24 Every Breath You Take - The Police Every Breath You Take - The Police

Beautiful song and extremely sinister - MinistryMonster

IMHO - should be # 1!!! Yeah! Delicious! - ColdNordicGirl

25 Both Sides Now - Joni Mitchell Both Sides Now - Joni Mitchell
26 We Will Rock You - Queen We Will Rock You - Queen
27 Layla - Derek and the Dominos Layla - Derek and the Dominos

The light-heavy blend of guitars and piano take you away on a cloud.

Everyone should listen this song... Its lyric is awesome... And its guitar riffs and drum work is just awesome... Check this out man

35 Unchained Melody - The Righteous Brothers Unchained Melody - The Righteous Brothers

There is a reason why this song has been remade over and over again, and there is a reason why not a single remake has come close to surpassing this version. It is an amazing song paired with the perfect voice to give it wings.

I once heard someone sing it as beautifully as the Righteous Brothers. It was just an unknown black man who was singing it along with the piano in my dorm. He didn't know anyone was listening. I instantly fell in love with the guy.

36 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

The lyrics are so beautiful
