90 Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters - Elton John 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.

91 I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend - The Ramones I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend - The Ramones

This is the most beautiful thing I have ever heard.

92 Franco Un-American - NOFX Franco Un-American - NOFX
93 Tangerine - Led Zeppelin Tangerine - Led Zeppelin
94 Old Man - Neil Young Old Man - Neil Young
95 Dear God - Avenged Sevenfold Dear God - Avenged Sevenfold
96 Crime of the Century - Supertramp Crime of the Century - Supertramp
97 Thirty-Three - The Smashing Pumpkins Thirty-Three - The Smashing Pumpkins

This song is a bit obscure I guess, but you should give it a listen. It's one of those songs that every one can relate to because every one has been there. Everybody has put on a happy face during crushing depression, everybody has faced the world all alone. No one has told that story better than Billy Corgan.

This is a fan favorite, but thought it deserves at least a mention in ANY beautiful song list. Seriously, if you have never heard the song and you just studied the words you would tear up... Not for sadness, but from beauty.

I don't think anyone has written about putting on a brave face for the world better than Billy Corgan... This song is beautiful.

Hauntingly beautiful
