Top 100 Greatest Songs Of All Time


List of Best Songs of all time

If you search over net for 'Greatest Songs' you'll find a lot of lists;Some with real good songs on it and others just being copied from the Rolling Stone's List of 500 greatest Songs. Even Many magazines and critics came out with their own lists of 'Best Songs'. But i never found them complete as most of them were influenced,oriented and focused to few artists.On a larger scale there are many 'One Hit wonders' and they are rarely included in such lists.

So i decided to make up a list of my own on Greatest songs. I tried to focus on selecting those songs which were not only best selling but also influenced pop culture.These songs range from 50s decade to 00s decade and cover almost all music genres.To bring up this list of Best Songs I Took Help Of Billboard Charts, Rolling Stones List,Grammy Award Records,Influence On Culture, Sale records Plus My Favorites.

While i tried to keep my 'Top 100' list with 'Best of the Bests' singles but it doesn't mean that everyone else will agree with this list.You may find 1,2 or may be 10 songs that you will not include in your list but I am sure you will agree with most of the list.

The list is user oriented.This means you can vote up your favorite songs and vote down the songs you don't like.From the list of Top 100 songs i also selected my personal favorite Top 10 songs.

If you find any of your favorite song missing from the list then do let me know in the comments.

The Beatles are my favorite band. U2, Green day, The Eagles, Nirvana, and The Rolling Stones are really awesome too! My favorite album by The Rolling Stones is Tattoo You from 1981!

MoonandMagic on December 04, 2010:

I was here and I enjoyed all the polls! I agree with flowski though there should be some Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin! great lens.

flowski lm on December 02, 2010:

Excellent lens. I would have added Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Rush and The Grateful Dead to the best bands poll. But the Beatles would still win.

rachsue lm on November 28, 2010:

A great way of classifying the songs and selecting the Best.

Well done.

Great lens! I submitted 2 more songs for the best songs of the 2000's list. Don't know why Hotel California was number one.....

Grumpy-Fett on November 18, 2010:

The ones I recognize the most are from the 80's. I guess I am still an 80's girl. Great lens.

JHFSEO on September 30, 2010:

Excellent collection of some of the greatest songs. I'd be tempted to put a duel module after each decade just to hear people duke it out over their choices. Great lens!

remanon on September 29, 2010:

Good fun lens!

RebeccaE on September 28, 2010:

oh the greatest of all these songs, the polls were difficult simply because you had so many great choices.

JoyfulPamela2 from Pennsylvania, USA on September 28, 2010:

So many awesome songs! I don't know how you were able to choose your favorites. Thanks for sharing all the cool videos. : )

Barbara Isbill from New Market Tn 37820 on September 27, 2010:

Great lens. Informative. New Fan here!

glenbrook on September 22, 2010:

I'm not much for pop music but I agree that Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love" you is one of the prettiest songs of all time. Now I gotta run and listen to some Judas Priest to clear my head...

PositiveChristi1 on September 22, 2010:

Great lens. I enjoyed the voting options.

Faye Rutledge from Concord VA on September 22, 2010:
