Recently I shared a list of some of the best poets and poetry performances available on youtube.Music and poetry are not very separate from each other so it would be apt to follow it with some of the best lyrical and beautiful songs (My ratings). These songs have a meaning and a mesmerizing quality that makes them linger in your head for a very long time
So here is a list of some of my favorite songs, yes there are many more which I will share later.
PS:All english songs in this edition
TOP SONGS on Youtube
5: Goodbye my lover:
Agreed it is a heart breaking song but man, is it beautiful? .The best way to enjoy is to listen to the live version.Live versions tend to me more soulful and heart touching. James blunt sings accompanied only with a piano and that leads it a sense of simplicity. Beautiful lyrics and beautiful music
And I still hold your hand in mine.
In mine when I’m asleep.
And I will bare my soul in time,
When I’m kneeling at your feet.
Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.
4: Fix You:Coldplay
I should not be saying much about this song, it just grows on you.Just listen to not just the music but the lyrics,
first para:I suggest you give it a full listen
When you try your best, but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
3:Say what you need to say
I think the title of this song by John Mayers explains everything.
2:Nightingale by Norah Jones
Norah jones possibly has one of the most soothing voices present..
1:Fireflies by Owl City
If I were given an option to wish “I wish that this song was composed by me”, I would select this song without a thought.It is so amazing, its talks about the natural inquisitiveness of a child mixed with a little nerdiness ,a perfect combination. I cannot tell you how much I Love this song, it has been my number 1 for ages
