The ten most timeless songs

Ellen Fitzpatrick

The hardest thing anyone ever has to do is decide what the greatest song of all time is. There are so many amazing ones but below are a list of the top 10.

No matter what your music taste is, these songs are some you could listen to on repeat and never get bored. These are musical gems that you’ll always remember.

At number 10 ‘Wonderwall’ by Oasis.

You definitely predicted this one but it just seemed wrong to leave it out. The song is listed a classic in every Spotify and iTunes breakdown and no matter where you are and it comes on, it doesn’t take two seconds before you’re belting it out for the world to hear.

In at 9 is ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’ by Guns N’ Roses.

It may be at the very end of the Spotify classics but there is no denying the impact this number one single has on people when they hear it. No one ever said busting out your air guitar was a crime.

Number 8 goes to David Bowie’s ‘Changes’.

Bowie is an icon and icons create timeless music any age group can enjoy. Upon its release in 1972, Bowie created something everyone could relate to and as the song grew older it only became more relevant. It even made it onto the Shrek 2 soundtrack; talk about a classic.

The number 7 spot goes to ‘Hey Ya’ by Outcast.

There is no song in history that gets a room full of people more hyped than this 2003 anthem. It became a sensation after it kept the number one spot in the US for nine weeks straight.

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ makes it to our number 6 slot.

The song was number one in the UK with its original release in 1975 and made it back there in the US with its 1992 re-release. Queen delivered an absolute masterpiece with this track.

At number 5 we have ‘Let It Be’ by The Beatles.

It may have been their final song before splitting up but is easily their most iconic and most memorable. This song has been covered over and over showing the lasting impact it has on us all.

In at 4 is ‘Lose Yourself’ by Eminem.

This is the most streamed single in Spotify’s most timeless songs and it never fails to bring out everyone’s inner hip-hop artist.

Heading into the top 3 and the spot goes to ‘Mr. Brightside’ by The Killers.

It has made a name for itself as one of the most iconic songs in existence.

At number 2 we have ‘Billie Jean’ by Michael Jackson.

Like Bowie, Jackson is considered a legend and ‘Billie Jean’ is just one of his many great songs that will live on in his memory for years. He is not called the King of Pop for nothing.

The number 1 spot goes to Nirvana with ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’.

This is one song that brings everyone together, no matter what your music taste is. It never quite made it to the top of the charts but the classic will forever live on.
