50 Best Songs of All Time – Greatest Songs from 60s – 2000s

The 50 Greatest Songs of All Time That You'll Love

We all love music, and we’re downright passionate about it.  Music is the soundtrack to our lives.  It’s not just entertainment—it’s a part of us.  But what happens when you try and narrow down the 50 best songs of all time?  

Well, my guess is that it leads to a little bit of controversy and spirited debated—but I suppose that’s to be expected.  So, without further ado, here are 50 songs that we believe are the greatest songs ever made.

The Best Songs of All Time

Let’s begin with #50, which is a well known track from from Bob Marley and the Wailers.

50) I Shot the Sheriff by Bob Marley & the Wailers (1973)

Bob Marley & the Wailers

This Bob Marley song is centered around themes of justice, and quickly became a well-known track by the artist. It created the memorable saying “I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy” that countless people still know and use to this day. 

Marley’s vocals blend well with the chosen guitar chords and the overall vibe of the song. It conveyed a message that needed to be said, but did so through rhythmic drum beats and funky keyboard notes. 

49) Chandelier by Sia (2014)

This song took the world by storm. It was the first song by the artist that landed on the Billboard Hot 100, and got her multiple different nominations at the Grammys. It’s an incredibly emotional message about alcohol abuse that comes from the singer’s own experiences, and it is clear in the powerful, raw inclinations of her voice that she has felt it. 

The powerful instrumentals aid to drive the story home. This song demands to be heard, demands to be felt, and has left a lasting impression on its audience and the world. 

48) Wake Me Up When September Ends by Green Day (2005)

This song is painful. It’s real. It’s raw. Singer Billie Joe Armstrong wrote the song as a dedication to his late father, and it took him twenty years to feel emotionally ready to record it in a studio. This ballad has helped so many others through their hard times, with its gentle, rhythmic guitar picking and Armstrong’s emotionally relentless vocals. 

It’s a startlingly somber track off of American Idiot. I cry every time I hear it, but I can’t get enough of it. 

47) In Color by Jamey Johnson (2008)

This is another brutally real song about looking into the past and appreciating the things that our grandparents have gone through, the numerous wars they had seen, and how something like a black-and-white picture wasn’t nearly enough to tell the whole story. 

This was one of the first emotional tracks the world had seen from Johnson upon its release. This song has hauntingly beautiful guitar picking, and Johnson’s melodic voice fits the lyrics absolutely perfectly. 

This is another song that makes a knot form in my chest whenever I hear it, and reminds me- as it does many others- of what our families have gone through to create the country we live in today. 

46) Springsteen by Eric Church (2011)

This is another song I vividly remember hearing all the time while I was growing up. It is almost undeniably Eric Church’s most famous song. The piano is absolutely perfect, and compliments Church’s Southern-twang vocals well. You can’t help but sing along. It brings so many people back to their teenage years, to a love long gone, to the street they grew up on and the friends they went to high school with. 

I hear this song and think about my brother’s best friend when he was in high school, who would always pull up to our house in his truck blasting it. That’s just the kind of effect this song has on people. 

45) Take Me Out by Franz Ferdinand (2004)

Released on the band’s debut album, this song was quickly certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. It’s so incredibly catchy, and has you nodding your head or tapping your foot the entire way through. 

It has an undeniably indie rock sound; its relentless electric guitar, grungy vocals, and intoxicating drum rhythm make it impossible not to jam along to. It’s a song I can never skip when it pops up on my playlist. 

44) I’ll Make Love to You by Boyz II Men (1994)

Switching up the genre a bit from my previous entries on this list, I have the legendary R&B track I’ll Make Love to You. This song is timeless. I could talk for hours about the incredible vocal range from the members of Boyz II Men here, as well as the fact that they harmonize with each other so perfectly.

The result is sensual,  timeless and a masterpiece. It’s everyone’s dream relationship put into a song.

43) Someone Like You by Adele (2011)

The perfect breakup song. A song that signifies that, even though an old relationship is over, that you can move on and find a better partner. Adele’s powerful voice and message continue to be a light in the darkness of failed relationships. 

The piano is gentle yet memorable, and Adele’s vocals are stunning and demand attention. I used this song as a coping strategy after a particularly rough breakup to help me realize that I deserved better—and my standards have been much higher ever since. 

42) Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton (2015)

Though Stapleton was not the originator of this song, his version is the one I love the most. It reminds me of hearing my mother singing it in the kitchen while cooking dinner. It’s a love ballad in which a man compares the woman he loves to all of the best things about the alcohol he drinks. 

It sounds a little strange and shallow on the surface, but once you hear the song, you fall in love with her too. Stapleton’s voice is just so perfect for the message, and this rendition deserves every ounce of praise it has received. 

41) DNA by Kendrick Lamar (2017)

This song is known for being a social commentary about the state of America and its views on African Americans and hip hop culture. This is yet another song on this list that conveys an undeniably important message. 

Lamar’s lyrics and blatant way of speaking holds the audience from the very first line. He unapologetically lays it all on the table without a care if he is offending anyone. This powerful work of art holds people accountable for why society is the way that it is, and I admire his fearlessness immensely. 

40) Could Have Been Me by The Struts (2014)

This song has always been inspirational to me. It screams of fearlessness and chasing your dreams and never settling for anything less than everything you want. It’s grungy and powerful, and calls to arms all the kids whose parents told them they would never achieve their dreams. 

I can’t emphasize enough how the lead singer’s strong, almost unrefined vocals fit the attitude of this song so perfectly. The guitar demands the song be heard. No other song can raise me up quite like it.

39) He Stopped Loving Her Today by George Jones (1980)

It’s hard to believe Jones hated this song the first time he heard it. But at its release, it became his first number one hit in six years, and is widely known as one of the best country songs of all time. 

It’s a song about the kind of love that we all want; a man who loves the same woman until he dies. It’s heartfelt, it’s endearing, it’s everything good about country music. It breaks your heart a little every time you hear it, and I would give anything to hear it for the first time all over again. 

38) Summer of ’69 by Bryan Adams (1984)

This song is a summertime masterpiece; it makes me nostalgic for a time I wasn’t even alive to see. Adams fought to make the song the way it is today, and to encompass a special kind of energy in it. 

This is a song his vocal style is absolutely perfect for. This song personifies the feeling of being young, enjoying life, not having a care in the world. It’s the way I want to feel all the time. 

37) Prayer of the Refugee by Rise Against (2006)

Another painfully real song. It focuses on the topic of feeling different, being emotionally alienated from both the people around you and yourself. It’s something a lot of us have felt. 

I have always been a fan of lead singer Tim McIlrath’s sound, but the emotion he puts into the lyrics in this song is phenomenal. The strong bass riff adds necessary depth to the message, and the overall grungy feel just makes it that much more real. I have always found the song to be absolutely incredible. 

36) Clocks by Coldplay (2002)

This song was built entirely around the infamous piano riff that it is now known for, and obviously for good reason. A collaboration by every member of the band, something about this song just feels so magical. 

The piano is, of course, legendary, and singer Chris Martin’s voice just brings a flare to the song no one else could. Even famous magazine Rolling Stone put this song on their list of the 500 greatest songs of all time

35) Ms. Jackson by Outkast (2000)

Having reached the number one spot in five different countries’ Billboard Hot 100 lists, this song has clearly received all the attention it deserves. It’s rap-but-pop feel, and almost unbearably catchy lyrics (dedicated to Erykah Badu’s mom, no less), make it such an earworm that it just randomly pops into my head sometimes. 

Something about “Ms Jackson” is just so fun, and it’s a common song that regularly appears on my Spotify playlist at the gym. 

34) Bad Moon Rising by Creedence Clearwater Revival (1969)

A song inspired by an old black-and-white movie but released in a time of turmoil for America, it has become representative of the decade. But despite its seemingly doom-related message, its also quite catchy, and has become a classic tune most people recognize. 

It was one of the first songs I learned how to play when I started playing guitar. It’s another song that gets stuck on an endless loop in my head whenever I hear it. 

33) Gangsta’s Paradise by Coolio and Kylian Mash (1995)

Arguably one of the best hip hop songs of all time, even people that don’t regularly listen to the genre know this song. 

This song has also received its fair share of attention (in park due to being attached to a movie—Dangerous Minds—soundtrack).  This is also a song that’a listed at number 98 on Billboard’s list of the greatest songs of all time

This is another staple in my gym playlist, but it’s also a song that even my mother and I often enjoy together. Because that’s just what this song does: it brings generations together. 

32) Fly Me to the Moon by Frank Sinatra (1964)

Though Sinatra was not the originator of this song, he was undeniably the best known cover artist for it. His version of the song is just so inherently romantic, his vocals are smooth and clean, and of course the instrumentals are perfect for what the song is about. 

This is another song that undoubtedly countless people know, and though it is not something I listen to every day, I still love it when it comes on. 

31) Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley (1961)

One of the best love songs of all time. Point blank. Elvis’ voice, the harmonization, the beautiful guitar. There’s nothing about this song not to like. 

It’s another one of those songs that any girl would swoon over if their romantic partner played it for them. It’s so gentle, but gets the point of love across so effortlessly. It’s absolutely timeless. 

30) Hysteria by Muse (2003)

This is another song I can’t praise highly enough. I am such a huge fan of Muse in general, but the powerful rock guitar, strong vocals, and thrumming drums make this song impossible not to head bang to. 

This is the song you listen to going down the highway in the middle of the night driving a little too fast. It makes your heart pound faster almost takes your breath away. I listen to it honestly at least every other day. 

29) At Last by Etta James (1960)

A classic—pure classic.

James’ extraordinary voice absolutely made this song what it is, not to mention the breathtaking violins in the background. It has received an immense amount of love from critics and regular music lovers alike. 

This is another song that brings generations together, because it’s a song everyone loves singing together—even if no one can quite get James’ vocal range right. This song is what I imagine walking on clouds feels like. 

28) Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley (1994)

Yes, another cover. Leonard Cohen’s original is undeniably just as good as this one, but this is the version I have been listening to for a couple decades. It’s haunting, heart breaking, and pulls you in from the very beginning and doesn’t let go. 

I say this about many of the other artists on this list, but Buckley’s voice is just absolutely perfect for this. When I listen to it, I never want it to end. This was another song I was quick to learn to play on guitar and it’s one I play every single time I pick up the instrument. 

27) I Love Rock N’ Roll by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts (1981)

Another classic. A female powerhouse. Though Jett didn’t write the song, she was the one that ultimately made it famous. 

It’s hard hitting, and another that you just can’t help but head bang to. You scream it at the top of your lungs and are left breathless by the time the song is over. It’s a classic karaoke song, or maybe that’s just the way I see it because of a distinct memory I have of a drunk friend singing it at a bar once. 

Regardless, it’s flawless edge and hardcore feel are undeniable.

26) Kiss by Prince (1986)

I used to think the song was ridiculous when I was a kid. It was only as I got older that I began to appreciate it for what it is. It’s perfectly Prince, and I would argue it’s one of his best songs. 

It’s been used in countless movies, and for good reason. It was a worldwide number one hit. It’s memorable, and it’s another example of a song that you hear once and will be humming the tunes to all day long.  It will forever be a classic in my eyes. 

25) Baba O’Riley by The Who (1971)

Surprisingly techno for its time, this song has a unique sound that only The Who could pull off so well. The song was written to be part of The Who’s “rock opera” era, and it fits that theme incredibly well. 

Its intro is iconic, another example of a beat you feel an overwhelming urge to nod along to. Even my mother, who is sitting here with me as I am writing this and listening to the song, is bobbing along to it. This is the perfect song to play at the end of a movie where the main character has just won a Nascar race. 

24) Wonderwall by Oasis (1995)

Undeniably Oasis’ signature song, though singer Liam Gallagher doesn’t quite understand why. The song is about the imaginary friend you can call on to save you from yourself, which is something I think we all need. 

It’s vulnerable, and deep, and melodic. I absolutely adore the guitar in the song. It is not a song meant to be screamed, but screw it, I scream it anyway. 

23) I Have Nothing by Whitney Houston (1992)

Here’s a hot take: I like this song more than Whitney Houston’s version of I Will Always Love You. 

Houston’s incredible vocals are on full display in the range she exhibits in this masterpiece. It was written for the movie “The Bodyguard,” which I love (which may have influenced my opinion of the song just a little bit), and it recites the story of that film so well. 

This song made it one of the best-selling soundtracks of all time, and for good reason. It takes my breath away. 

22) Africa by Toto (1982)

Whether you love this song or you hate it (it’s gotten pretty big in meme culture, but obviously still has its true fans), no one can deny how popular the song is. It’s instantly recognizable, and some scientists even argue it can be scientifically proven it’s the best song of all time. 

While I wouldn’t go quite that far (hence why it isn’t number one on my list) I do enjoy the song immensely. It has a chorus that you have to scream; otherwise, you wouldn’t be doing it justice. 

My college friends and I have a fair share of memories playing this song in the living room of our apartment and screaming our lungs out to it. Looking back, I don’t know how we never got a noise complaint. 

21) Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes (2003)

The instrumentals in this song are an absolute masterpiece. The legendary bass riff and the pounding drum rhythm make this another song that’s impossible not to tap your foot along to. 

This song is even used as the unofficial theme for Italy’s national football team, though it can be heard at plenty of different sports venues. It’s hard to believe the song didn’t have much success when it was first released, as now it feels like an unforgettable piece of American art. 

Anyone that can play a bass guitar knows how to play this song. 

20) American Pie by Don McLean (1971)

This song was quick to hit number one on the Billboard charts after its release. According to McLean, this song is about the nostalgia that comes with closing one chapter in your life and moving to another. 

His reference to “the day the music died” is in regards to when his favorite musicians (Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.P. Richardson) died in a plane crash. Though the instrumentals in this song seem more light-hearted, the lyrics behind it tell the story of a very real, very important time in America’s history and in American lives. 

19) Space Oddity by David Bowie (1969)

Perhaps the best known character of Bowie’s, aside from Ziggy Stardust, is Major Tom, and this song tells his story. It’s was one of Bowie’s most complex songs at the time of its release, and was the first instance of his signature psychedelic rock sound. 

It starts off slow and mellow and builds up over the course of the song, with an awe-inspiring tale of an astronaut’s trip into space. It’s honestly kind of inspirational, though I don’t think that was Bowie’s intent while writing it. Regardless, it’s one of his better works and has plenty of recognizable lines in it. 

18) Hotel California by The Eagles (1976)

This song is an unapologetic commentary on the self-indulgence and dark side of the American dream, and won the band a Grammy in 1977. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame even named the song as one of the ones that shaped rock and roll

Another song with an arguably psychedelic feel, as it features guitar picking and smooth bass notes.  With that said, this track also offers soft but defined vocals that pull it all together. 

This has always been one of my mother’s favorite songs, so it’s one that I’ve been exposed to all of my life. As a child, I had wanted to be famous one day. This song shook me out of that. 

17) Kashmir by Led Zeppelin (1975)

Some would argue Stairway to Heaven should beat this one out for one of the best songs of all time, but I think it’s time this song gets the recognition it deserves on a list like this. 

I cannot emphasize enough my borderline unhealthy obsession with the guitar riff in this song. It’s just incredible, and it’s something that, again, everybody knows, even if they don’t realize it comes from this song. 

The lyrics are powerful on Kashmir. Every second of this song holds your attention relentlessly; once it starts, you have to listen all the way through. There’s just absolutely just no skipping it. 

16) I Will Always Love You by Dolly Parton (1974)

Everyone loves Whitney Houston’s version of this song, but we need to pay our respects to the Queen of Country

Though admittedly I also was not a huge fan of this song when I was younger, it has grown on me as I have grown.

It’s gentle but heartfelt, and amazes me every time I hear it. Houston’s cover of the song has that intense crescendo in the last chorus, but honestly I like that Dolly’s doesn’t. It keeps the song soft and serene, the way I believe it should be. This version of the song is the song at its finest. 

15) What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong (1967)

This song has an inherent sense of hope about it that inspires one to believe that, even though things can be hard and life can be rough sometimes, it’s always worth living. Armstrong’s iconic sound made the song what it is. This is another song that didn’t do very well upon release (at least, not in the U.S.), and it’s impossible to understand why. 

But the film “Good Morning, Vietnam” finally got the song the recognition it deserved, almost twenty years after its initial release. It’s now a staple in the traditional pop genre, and many artists over the years have paid the song the respect it deserved. 

14) Dream On by Aerosmith (1973)

This song was released as part of Aerosmith’s debut album, and it was the band’s first major hit, becoming, arguably, a classic rock staple. 

Singer Steven Tyler’s vocals are fully on display in all of their magnificent glory throughout the track. This song is one of fearlessness and the relentless desire to be somebody; it’s dreaming until you’ve finally achieved everything you want. 

It’s about pushing through the hard times until you can say you made it to the other side. There’s raw emotion in this track that makes the message that much stronger. It has always been a favorite of mine. 

13) Thunderstruck by AC/DC (1990)

Another classic you can’t escape from at sports games. With a hard hitting intro and yet another incredible example of a legendary guitar riff, everyone loves chanting “thunder” repeatedly as it builds up to the song’s kickoff lyrics. 

It’s energizing, gives you goosebumps, and will have you screaming in the stands rooting for a team you’ve never supported before in your life. You’ll throw your fist up in the air until your shoulders are sore, but you won’t stop. You just can’t stop. 

Once the song is over, it leaves you feeling like you got smacked in the face and are utterly unable to comprehend what just happened to you. It makes you feel a way not many other songs can.

12) Billie Jean by Michael Jackson (1982)

Michael Jackson released so many incredible hits that it was hard to choose one to put on this list. Thriller would have been too expected, and Smooth Criminal just wasn’t quite right. 

Billie Jean, however, tells a unique and memorable story. Jackson wrote it about groupies that followed him and his brothers around for years, claiming to be carrying their children. It’s almost impossible to believe people like that really exist, but unfortunately, it was a reality of life for the King of Pop. 

The lyrics portray an intense emotion that almost makes the listener feel as though they’re going through the same thing. As much as it makes you wish he wouldn’t have had to deal with something like that, at least Jackson got a catchy, memorable song out of it. 

11) Wild Horses by The Rolling Stones (1971)

The songs (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction and Sympathy for the Devil were, of course, highly considered for this slot. But something about Wild Horses is so different from anything else the well-known rock band ever made, it easily beat out the other two for this slot. 

The Rolling Stones went through a ton of obstacles, including losing their piano player and having legal issues with their manager, to create and release this song, but knowing all of that almost makes the message of the song that much more relevant. 

The use of a twelve-string guitar adds so much depth to the already melancholy feel of the song. It leaves behind a heaviness once it is over, but it’s got so much emotion and drive that you can’t help but listen to it on loop.

10) Losing My Religion by R.E.M (1991)

I, once again, was a kid when I found this song, and obviously way too young to understand what it really meant. I just thought it was catchy, and really liked the guitar. Though that is still true, I am now able to appreciate the song for what it really is. 

The phrase “losing my religion,” contrary to common belief, is an old Southern saying about losing your temper. It has nothing to do with religion at all. 

The song’s impressive use of mandolin was unusual for the genre, and I believe makes it that much more memorable. The band never had another hit quite like it, and it is commonly referred to as one of the best songs of all time. 

9) Mr. Brightside by The Killers (2003)

My inner emo kid is screaming

This song was the band’s debut, and when they first released it, it flopped in the U.S. Their sound just wasn’t what the American ear wanted. But now, this song is absolutely an indie alternative legend. It spent five years in the UK’s Top 100, and even now, is streamed 1.2 million times a week on average. 

It’s a song of heartbreak, inspired by singer Brandon Flowers finding his girlfriend cheating. Knowing that makes the lyrics so much more real. This song is Flowers spilling his emotion onto a page, and with guitarist Dave Keuning’s backing track, it quickly became a modern sensation. I don’t think a single generation for the years to come that won’t know this work of art. 

8) Respect by Aretha Franklin (1967)

Another female powerhouse. Though originally written by Otis Redding, this track quickly became Franklin’s defining song. It’s a feminist anthem still used to this day to portray a powerful message. 

Aside from helping people learn how to spell the word “respect,” it defined what exactly that meant, challenging traditional gender roles. It’s another song found on Rolling Stone’s list of the greatest songs of all time, and that seems to be a common sentiment. Franklin’s jazzy but demanding vocals made the song that much more influential. 

On top of that, Aretha Franklin is sort of the “Russian doll” of musical inspiration (for example, she inspired Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, two singers that went on to inspire the likes of Brandy and Ariana Grande).  

Now that’s worthy of some serious respect.

7) Hurt by Johnny Cash (2002)

The emotional attachment I have to this song is unreal. My personal belief is that Johnny Cash is one of the best country singers of all time, and this heavy, hard to swallow track (though an original from Nine Inch Nails, and one Cash didn’t even like at first) becomes that much more painful knowing it was released shortly before his death. 

I cried the first time I watched the music video, and cried again rewatching it while writing this article. To this day, it serves as Cash’s legacy next to songs like Ring of Fire. It caused the world’s heart to break. It will forever be an emotional tribute to the country legend. 

6) Come Together by The Beatles (1969)

I won’t lie, I had this song stuck in my head the entire time I was writing this article. The bass riff in this track is instantly recognizable, and has inspired many of the songs that have come out in the years since its release. It pairs so nicely with the crisp top hat taps that it plays alongside, making the song practically flawless. 

It’s been used in countless commercials and movies, and adds a necessary strength to help emphasize the point of those productions. Though the Beatles is one of the greatest bands of all time, I often find myself easily bored of many of their songs. But that has never happened to me with this track, and I don’t think it ever will. 

5) Enter Sandman by Metallica (1984)

This is another example of instrumentals I’m absolutely obsessed with. Despite being one of the best metal songs ever, it’s got a bluesy main riff—and that riff inspired the entire song

It took the band awhile to write the lyrics, as it was originally supposed to be about crib death until the rest of the band found the lyrics a little too heavy for what they expected to be a hit song. It’s probably a good thing they changed it. It helped the Black Album debut at number one on the Billboard charts, and to this day, the album has sold somewhere around a gazillion units in the U.S. and nine other countries. 

This song was defining for the band’s sound, and quickly became one of the tracks they were well-known for. 

4) Imagine by John Lennon (1971)

I clearly have a tendency to lean toward more emotional, hearty songs, and this one is no exception. 

This was the best selling song of Lennon’s solo career. It tells a message of world peace and encouraging countries to all get along. It’s a powerful anti-war track, even if that was not necessarily the intended original theme. 

Its beloved by many, having been covered by over 200 other musical artists. Though no one can do it quite like Lennon, with his serene and harmonic vocals, it’s beautiful to see the song continuing to live on so many years after its release. 

3) Sweet Child O’ Mine by Guns N’ Roses (1987)

My father has always been a huge fan of 80s rock, and this song reminds me of sitting on our back porch on a summer night, fairy lights laced around the ceiling and fans blowing to ward off the heat—all the while hearing this song playing on the radio. 

Arguably one of the best ballads in rock and roll, it was the band’s only number one U.S. single. Singer Axl Rose wrote the song about his then girlfriend, and Lynyrd Skynyrd served as inspiration to ensure the song was as emotional as it needed to be. 

To me, this song is the definition of 80s rock. Everyone knows it, everyone loves it, and if you don’t, you just have some weird vendetta against the band or something.

2) Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen (1975)

No list of the best songs ever made would be complete without this one. Honestly, it was hard to pick between this and my number one choice. 

Many people do regard this as the best song of all time. It is easily the song the band is most known for. Generations of people have enjoyed its timelessness in the years since its release. Everything about it is so nearly perfect, from the electricity of the guitar to the relentless drum beats to, of course, the talent of Freddie Mercury. 

Everybody knows the words, though we all struggle to hit the crescendo that only Mercury could master. Nothing else quite like it has been released since. Whether you know it because you’re a fan of the band or because of the iconic scene in “Wayne’s World,” the song Bohemian Rhapsody belongs on this top five. 

1) Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey (1981)

Though it can be argued Bohemian Rhapsody should have this spot, Don’t Stop Believin’ is a ballad of positivity and hope, arguing against the monotonous nature of human life.  On top of that, the songs touches on how, even though we don’t know what the future will hold, we must always hold the belief that things will get better. 

This is the perfect song to scream in the car, in your house, at a party, or at karaoke—it always brings the entire room together. Enemies set aside their differences to sing along, and babies say their first words to this song. 

It’s timeless, it’s perfect, and it’s the legacy of a band that has been loved and will continue to be for ages. 


A lot of you will probably disagree with this list. And that’s okay. It’s impossible to make a list like this that every single person will agree with. There are some songs on here that objectively belong on a list of the best songs of all time, and some that have never been seen on a list like this before. 

I get it.

Every song is on here for its own reason. Whether you think they should be or not, this list still serves as a journey (ha, get it?) through time, paying respects to failures that turned into successes, and songs that defined careers and generations of kids. 

They’re all classics in their own right.  And, as music fans, we’re the ultimate winners.
