The Contenders: Page 4

61 Fix You - Coldplay
62 I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That) - Meat Loaf
63 Over the Hills and Far Away - Led Zeppelin

This is a very touching song, indeed. This song is sadly underrated in my opinion. This song moves me in a way that Stairway to Heaven never does. I wish more people realized how good this song is. - serenajones

My favourite led zep song.. I like it better than stairway..
It is indeed underrated

64 From Yesterday - 30 Seconds to Mars
65 Kings and Queens - 30 Seconds to Mars
66 Jungleland - Bruce Springsteen
67 Echoes - Pink Floyd

And no one sings me lullabies
And no one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide
And call to you across skies

68 A Beautiful Lie - 30 Seconds to Mars
69 Sad Song - D'erlanger
70 The Fourth Avenue Cafe - L'Arc~en~Ciel
71 If I Fell - The Beatles
72 Space Oddity - David Bowie
73 Comin' Back to Me - Jefferson Airplane
74 I Need You - America
75 Nowhere Warm - Kate Havnevik

If you haven't heard this song, buy it. It's beautiful.

76 Tuesday Afternoon - Moody Blues

The Moody Blues have many songs like this or even better, The Actor, New Horizons, Nights in White Satin, Driftwood, Never Comes the day, Watching and Waiting. The Tide rushes in, I just think the Moody Blues get no respect sometimes, and I do love many of the bands on this list. Please check out some of these lesser known but great Moody Blues songs.

77 Dust in the Wind - Kansas
78 Hey Jude - The Beatles
79 I'll Attack - 30 Seconds to Mars
80 Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters - Elton John

Can anyone please tell me, where the hell all the Elton John Songs are? Think of Your Song - the most beautiful love song ever -, Sixty Years On - a composition of thoughts and worries about getting old lonely -, Candle In The Wind, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Sacrifice, Rocket Man, Someone Saved My Life Tonight and at leats 20 more beautiful pieces... At least one of them should be in the Top 15!

Elton's voice and piano playing paired with Davey Johnstones's mandolin create one of the most beautiful melodic combinations of all time.
