The Most Beautiful Songs of the Rock and Roll Era

The Contenders: Page 2

21 After the Gold Rush - Neil Young
22 California Girls - The Beach Boys
23 Little Wing - Jimi Hendrix

Great song writing from the most innovative guitarist ever.

Never really was much of a fan of jimi hendrix, but this song was great. - PotBellyPup

I love little wing

24 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!

25 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.

26 Every Breath You Take - The Police

Beautiful song and extremely sinister - MinistryMonster

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

27 Nutshell - Alice In Chains
28 Both Sides Now - Joni Mitchell
29 We Will Rock You - Queen
30 Teo Torriatte (Let Us All Cling Together) - Queen

most beautiful song Queen ever wrote period exclamation point the end.! - Queen-aholic

31 Another One Bites the Dust - Queen
32 Voodoo Chile - Jimi Hendrix
33 Behind Blue Eyes - The Who
34 Every Grain of Sand - Bob Dylan
35 Layla - Derek and the Dominos

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

This is my daddy's favourite song.

I love this song

36 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

Wish you were here. Better than the Dark Side of the Moon

The lyrics are so beautiful

Wish You Were Here in 27th? Are you OK? - PositronWildhawk

37 Unholy Confessions - Avenged Sevenfold

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

38 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.

39 Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton

Well it should be Top 10 it was my cousins Wedding song - Greenday

40 Finale - L'arc~en~ciel

one of the darkest song and saddest song, very beautiful intro, chorus, very deep lyrics - it is not just very simple japanese song, a very perfect song for the movie The Ring 00 - ronluna
