Best Songs Ever

Updated on December 9, 2013

Best Songs Ever

The task of compiling a list of the best songs to ever grace the music world is very subjective especially when you have to consider songs from different genres and the absence of uniform criteria. However this article lists the best songs based off a survey conducted by some agencies and opinions of experts.

As you read through Im pretty sure you will find more songs on the list you agree should be there and fewer songs you would rather not see on the list.


"We Are the Champions" - Queen

This song is widely regarded as the best song to ever grace the music industry. The song which was written by Freddie Mercury and performed by Queen has topped several polls for the world's Best Song. It was the official theme song for the FIFA 1994 World Cup and was named as the catchiest song ever by a group of researchers in 2011.

There are three famous versions of the top ten songs in this category. There are lists compiled by Q magazine, Rolling stone and New Musical Express.
