My Favorite Songs in English

I love music. I love many types of Music, Rock,Pop,Classical,Pure. I love songs sung in many different languages, English,Spanish,French,Russian,Chinese,Japanese and maybe Korean.

Here's the list of My Favorite English Songs Top 10. Enjoy.

P.S: I just find that I can't choose top 10 songs from so many of my favorite. Let's make it Top 20 then.

A Whole New World
A Whole New World

A Whole New World (Aladdin)

I learned this song when I was 13. Actually I am living in a non-English Speaking country, China, few people around listened to English songs. But I do.

I like this song. While when I was at that age, the lyrics seemed to contain too many new words to me. I looked up all the new words in the dictionary. Unfortunately, this song requires two people to sing together. I always do it all by myself. Interesting?

i can show you the world
shining, shimmering, splendid
tell me, princess, now when did
you last let your heart decide

i can open your eyes
take you wonder by wonder
over, sideways and under
on a magic carpet ride

a whole new world
a new fantastic point of view
no one to tell us no or where to go
or say we're only dreaming
a whole new world
a dazzling place i never knew
but when i'm way up there
it's crystal clear
that now i'm in a whole new world
with you
--
unbelievable sights
indescribable feeling
soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
through an endless diamond sky
a whole new world
don't you dare close your eyes
a hundred thousand things to see
hold your hreath - it gets better
i'm like a shooting star i've come so far
i can't go back to where i used to be
a whole new world
with new horizons to pursue
i'll chase them anywhere
there's time to spare
let me share this whole new world
with you
----
a whole new world
a new fantastic point of view
no one to tell us no or where to go
or say we're only dreaming
a whole new world
(every turn a surprise)
with new horizons to pursue
(every momment red-letter)
i'll chase them anywhere
there's time to spare
anywhere
there's time to spare
let me share this whole new world
with you

Can You Feel the Love Tonight? (Elton John)

there's a calm surrender
to the rush of day
when the heat of the rolling world
can be turned away
an enchanted moment
and it sees me through
it's enough for this restless warrior
just to be with you
and can you feel the love tonight?
it is where we are
it's enough for wide eyed wanderer
that we got this far
and can you feel the love tonight?
how it's laid to rest
it's enough to make kings and vagabonds
believe the very best
there's a time for ev'ryone
if they only learn
that the twisting kaleidoscope
moves us all in turn
there's a rhyme and reason
to the wild outdoors
when the heart of this starcrossed voyager
beats in time with yours
and can you feel the love tonight?
it is where we are
it's enough for this wide eyed wanderer
that we got this far
and can you feel the love tonight?
how it's laid to rest
it's enough to make kings and vagabonds
believe the very best

A Thousand Miles (Vanessa Carlton)

Have you ever seen the movie White Chicks (2004)? A Thousand Miles was in the movie and everyone likes it. I first met this song in a magzine, which has a CD containing all the songs listed in the mag. It's an amazing song. I love it. What do you think?

making my way downtown
walking fast
faces pass
and i'm home bound

staring blankly ahead
just making my way
making a way
through the crowd

and i need you
and i miss you
and now i wonder
if i could fall
into the sky
do you think time
would pass me by
cause you know i'd walk a thousand miles
if i could just see you... tonight

the Cranberries

Pretty (the Cranberries)

I have been in love with the Cranberries since I was 14 years old. I often bought MV Selected Collection stuff then. This song was in it. Whoops! That's fantastic. I kept buying all the newly coming CD Albums of the Cranberries. Hope you like it.

you're so pretty the way you are
you're so pretty the way you are
and you have no reason to be so insolent to me
you're so pretty the way you are

love, love
you say you want it
but you won't change me
love, love
you say you want it
but you won't change me

Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson

Will You Be There? (Michael Jackson)

I have been Michael Jackson's fan since I was 13. Actually I don't quite care about MJ's death days ago. He's in my heart. His song is in my heart. This song is one of my favorite. I have listed couple of MJ's songs I fancy in a separate hub. Check it out.

hold me
like the river jordan
and i will then say to thee
you are my friend

carry me
like you are my brother
love me like a mother
will you be there?
when weary
tell me will you hold me
when wrong will you scold me
when lost would you find me

but they told me
a man should be faithful
and walk when not able
and fight till the end
but i'm only human

everyone's taking control of me
seems that the world's got a role for me
i'm so confused will you show to me
you'll be there for me
and care enough to bear me

Vanessa Williams
Vanessa Williams

Color of the Wind (Vanessa Williams)

This song is amazing. I heard this song when I was 14 yr old. I love the lyrics and the music. Venessa just brought me to a completely new world, like what has been described in the lyrics. I saw this song has been highly considered in Youtube. It just deserved it.

think you own whatever land you land on
earth is just a dead thing you can claim
but i know every rock and tree and creature
has a life,has a spirit,has a name
think the only people who are people
are the people who look and think like you
but if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
you learn things you never knew
you never knew
have you ever heard the wolf cry
to the blue corn moon
or ask the grinning bobcat why he grinned
can you sing with all the voices
of the mountains
can you paint with all the colors of the wind

Sheryl Crow
Sheryl Crow

Tomorrow Never Dies (Sheryl Crow)

This one is also special. There's something in there that I can't describe. Feel it yourself.

darling i'm killed
i'm in puddle on the floor
waiting for you to return
oh what a thrill
vacillations good lord
how to tease
how you leave me to burn
it's so deadly my dear
the power of wanting you near

until the day
until the world falls away
until you say there will no more good-byes
i see it in your eyes
tomorrow never dies

Toni Braxton

Unbreak My Heart (Toni Braxton)

Years ago, when I first heard this song, I thought it was a male singer. I like her style of singing, very passionate.

don't leave me in all this pain
don't leave me out in the rain
come back and bring back the smile
come and take these tears away
i need your arms to hold me now
the nights are so unkind
bring back those nights when i held you beside me

un-break my heart
say you'll love me again
un-do this hurt you caused
when you walked out the door
and walked outta my life
un-cry these tears
i cried so many nights
un-break my heart, my heart

Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey

Hero (Mariah Carey)

Mariah Carey is another idol that I worship and adore besides Michael Jackson. This song, Hero, is probably my best song ever. This lyrics is great. And it's a hard song to sing. I think I can handle it despite that I am a man.

there's a hero
if you look inside your heart
you don't have to be afraid
of what you are
there's an answer
if you reach into your soul
and the sorrow that you know
will melt away
and then a hero comes along
with the strength to carry on
and you cast your fears aside
and you know you can survive
so when you feel like hope is gone
look inside you and be strong
and you'll finally see the truth
that a hero lies in you

Whitney Houston
Whitney Houston

I Have Nothing (Whitney Houston)

I think this song is better than I Will Always Love You. Well you might think the same way. I and my wife Angela often sing this song together. That feels good.

Share my life, take me for what I am
Cause I'll never change all my colours for you
Take my love, I'll never ask for too much
Just all that you are and everything that you do

I don't really need to look very much further
I don't want to have to go where you don't follow
I won't hold it back again, this passion inside
Can't run from myself
There's nowhere to hide

Well,don't make me close one more door
I don't wanna hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don't walk away from me.
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don't have you, you, you, you, you, you.

Carpenters

Yesterday Once More (Carpenters)

Forever the Carpenters, Forever the Yesterday Once More.

Everyone in this world should know this song, especially the Americans. It's too famous. It's also my wife's and my favorite.

when i was young i'd listen to the radio
waiting for my favorite songs
when they played i'd sing along
it made me smile
those were such happy times
and not so long ago
how i wonder where they'd gone
but they're back again just like a long lost friend
all the songs i love so well
every sha-la-la-la
every wo-wo still shine
every shinga-linga-ling
that they're started to sing so fine

Faye Wang

Eyes On Me (Faye Wang)

This song is not so famous. It's a song for a Japanese Video Game Final Fantasy VIII, sung by Faye Wang, a superstar in China. Everyone in China knows her and likes her. This song is beautiful. I can only use the word BEAUTIFUL to describe it.

whenever sang my songs
on the stage, on my own
whenever said my words
wishing they would be heard
i saw you smiling at me
was it real or just my fantasy
you'd always be there in the corner
of this tiny little bar
my last night here for you
same old songs, just once more
my last night here with you ?
maybe yes, maybe no
i kind of liked it you're your way
how you shyly placed your eyes on me
oh, did you ever know ?
that i had mine on you
darling, so there you are
with that look on your face
as if you're never hurt
as if you're never down
shall i be the one for you
who pinches you softly but sure
if frown is shown then
i will know that you are no dreamer

I Am Waiting For You (Monday Michiru Sipiaguine)

This song is written for a Japanese Animation Series the Legend of Galactic Heroes. I have read the novel and watched the animation. You probably can't easily see what the lyrics really means. I mean the real meaning. Unless you have seen the animation or read the novel. I once saw the English Version Novel and DVD on Amazon, while later it was gone. If you're interested in that, contact me, I'll give you more clues. This is a really beautiful song.

I can see through the stars
into your heart
So no matter
where you are its never far
I hold you in my soul,
you'll always be
Here With me forever,you must believe
I am waiting for you
I am waiting for you in my heart

There are these fewtimes
I feel I only for you
But I know
this shade of blue will'soon pass throngh
I must be strong without you by my side
I can see forever you are my light
I am waiting for you
I am waiting for you
I am waiting for you
I am waiting for you in my heart

Hikaru Utada
Hikaru Utada

Fly Me To the Moon (Hikaru Utada)

Hikaru Utada is a super star in Japan. I mean she is a real singer, not the common pop singer. She is a star. Any song by her is outstanding. While she has only a few English songs. This I believe is the best. If you like her voice, contact me, I can show you some of her best songs in Japanese.

Poets often use many words
To say a simple thing
It takes thought and time and rhyme
To make a poem sing
With music and words I've been playing
For you I have written a song
To be sure that you'll know what I'm saying
I'll translate as I go along
Fly me to the moon
And let me play among the stars
won't you let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars
In other words: Hold my hand!
In other words: Darling kiss me!
Fill my heart with song,
And let me sing forever more
Cause you are all long for all I worship and adore
In other words: Please be true!
In other words: I love you!

Number One (Hazel Fernandes)

Hanzel Fernandes is just a rock star. Her song is very powerful, energetic and passionate. I really love this song. It's written for a world faous Japanese Animation series the Bleach. I keep this song in my MP4 all the time. You'll surely love it.

If you wanna see some action
Gotta be the center of attraction
Make sure that they got their eyes on you
Like a face that you see on every magazine

Be the focus of attention
Be the name that everyone must mention
Come out from the shadows it's your time
'cause tonight is the night for everyone to see

It's natural
You know that this is what you got to be
It must the your destiny
Sensational
And you believe that
This is what you've waited for and
It's you back way on the door

Baby now you feel like number one
Shining bright for everyone
Living out your fantasy
The brightest star for all to see
Now you feel like number one
Shining bright for everyone
Living out your fantasy
The brightest star that's ever been

Cardigans

Love Fool (the Cardigans)

I love her voice, tho I haven't heard many songs by them.

dear, i fear we're faing a problem
you love me no longer, i know
and maybe there is nothing that i can do
to make you do
mama tells me i shouldn't bother
that i ought to stik to another man
a man that surely deserves me
but i think you do!
so i cry, i pray and i beg
love me love me
say that you love me
fool me fool me
go on and fool me
love me love me
pretend that you love me
leave me leave me
just say that you need me
so i cry, i pray and i beg
love me love me
say that you love me
leave me leave me
just say that you need me
i can't care about anything but you...

Reflection (Christina Aguielra)

Christina Aguielra is very talented. She is the apprentice of Ricky Martin, a world famous Latin Singer for his Cup of Life. This song is written for the Disney Cartoon Movie Mulan, about an old Chinese story. Beautiful song!

look at me
you may think you see who i really am
but you'll never know me
ev'ry day
it's as if i play a part
now i see
if i wear a mask i can fool the world
but i can not fool my heart

who is that girl i see
staring straight back at me
when will my reflection show
who i am inside

When You Believe
When You Believe

When You Believe (Whitney Houston & Mariah Carey)

It's the first time that Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston worked together. I am so pleased to see that. But are they really that good to each other? I heard that their fans were fighting and arguing all the time. This is really a tremendous song.

many nights we pray
with no proof anyone could hear
and our hearts a hopeful song
we barely understood
now we are not afraid
although we know there's much to fear
we were moving mountains long
before we know we could

there can be miracles
when you believe
though hope is frail
it's hard to kill
who knows what miracles
you can achieve
when you believe
somehow you will
you will when you believe

in this time of fear
when prayer so often proves in vain
hope seems like the summer birds
too swiftly flown away
and now i am standing here
my heart's so full i can't explain
seeking faith and speaking words
i never thought i'd say
there can be miracles
when you believe (when you believe)
though hope is frail
it's hard to kill
who knows what miracles
you can achieve (you can achieve)
when you believe
somehow you will
you will when you believe
they don't always happen when you ask
and it's easy to give in to your fear
but when you're blinded by your pain
can't see your way safe through the rain
thought of a still resilient voice
says love is very near
there can be miracles (miracles)
when you believe (when you believe)
though hope is frail
it's hard to kill
who knows what miracles
you can achieve (you can achieve)
when you believe
somehow you will
you will when you believe
you will when you believe
you will when you believe
just believe
you will when you believe

I Still Believe
I Still Believe

I Still Believe (Mariah Carey)

Mariah Carey again. No! I have tens of songs of Mariah's that I fancy. Probably I'll make a separate hub exclusively for her. This is a song that you really need to listen to. Highly recommended.

u look in my eyes.
and i get emotional.
inside.
i know it's crazy.
but u still can touch my heart.
and after all this time.
u'd think that i.
i wouldn't feel the same.
but time melts into nothing.
and nothing's changed.
i still believe.
someday u me.
will find ourselves.
in love again.
i had a dream.
each day of my life.
i'm filled with all the joy.
i could find.
u know that
i am not the desparate type.
if there's one spark of hope.
left in my grasp.
i hold it with both hands.
it's worth the risk of burning.
to have a second chance.
no,no no no no no.
i need u baby.
i still believe that we can be together.
(haaoo)
if we believe that true love.
never has 2 end.
then we must know that we will love again.

oh baby yeah.
u me.
(oh baby i do)some day u me.
(just give me one more try).
i had a dream(i miss ur love).
i-i still believe(yeah i still believe).

the Color of the Night (Lauren Christy)

I don't wanna talk much about this song. Just listen and feel.

You and I moving in the dark
Bodies close but souls apart
Shadowed smiles and secrets unrevealed
I need to know the way you feel
I'll give you everything I am
And everything I want to be
I'll put it in your hands
If you could open up to me oh
Can't we ever get beyond this wall

'Cause all I want is just once
To see you in the light
But you hide behind
The color of the night

Faith Hill
Faith Hill

There You Will Be (Faith Hill)

when i think back on these times,
and the dreams we left behind
i'll be glad cause i was blessed to get
to have you in my life
when i look back on these days
i'll look and see your face
you were right there for me
in my dreams i'll always see you soar
above the sky
in my heart there'll always be a place for you
for all my life
i'll keep a part of you with me
and everywhere i am there you'll be
and everywhere i am there you'll be

Dido

Thank you (Dido)

Nice song, very peaceful. While you can hear this song in Eminem's Stan. Very interesting.

my tea`s gone cold
i`m wondering why i got out of bed at all
the morning rain clouds up my window
and i can`t see at all
and even if i could it`d all be grey
but ur pic on my wall
it reminds me
that it`s not so bad,it`s not so bad
drank too much last night,got bills to pay
my head just feels in pain
i missed the bus and there `ll be hell today
i`m late for work again
and even if i`m there. they`ll all imply
that i might not last the day
and then u call me
it`s not so bad ,it`s not so bad
and i want to thank u
for giving me the best day of my life
oh just to be with u
is having the best day of my life
push the door,i`m home at last
and i`m soaking through and through
then u handed me a towel and all i see is u
and even if my house falls down now
i wouldn`t have a clue because u`re near me
and i want to thank u
for giving me the best day of my life
oh just to be with u
is having the best day of my life

Eminem

My Dad's Gone Crazy (Eminem)

Have you ever heard of Eminem? If not, it'll be your loss. The most famous rapper of white skin. I like him. This song is not the best, while it's the funniest. I'll probably have to make a separate hub to list all the Eminem's rap songs that I fancy.Here're other good songs on Youtube.

(Partial Lyrics of My Dad's Gone Crazy)

Hello boys and girls
Today we're gonna talk about father and daughter relationships
Do you have a daddy?
I'll bet you do
[Door opens]
who's your daddy?
[Hailie:]
Daddy, what're you doing?
Beat starts
[Eminem:]
Haha
[Eminem & Hailie:]
Ok then! everybody, listen up!
[Eminem:]
I'm goin to hell, who's comin' with me?
[Hailie:]
Somebody, please help him!
i think my dad gone crazy!

Thank you, Mighty Mom! I just post this hub yesterday mid-night. I planed to add more words about the songs and the artists today. Just like what you have mentioned. Of course, I will. I'd like more people to know great songs they probably have not yet heard. I really appreciate your words.

Mighty Mom 7 years ago from Where Left is Right, CA

Hello wARtist. When I saw the title of this hub I was expecting "English" as in from England, not English as in sung in English! That's how ego-centric I am:-).

Interesting choices. I love Elton John and loved the Aladdin movie (among other Disney films of the time). You have good taste in music!

If I might offer a suggestion for future hubs: Write a little about the artist, song and why you like it. And a video clip from YouTube in addition to/or instead of photos would be helpful also for those who might not be familiar with the songs you've selected. Just a suggestion -- your hub is quite nice just the way it is. MM
