The Top Nine Most Awesome English Songs of All Time

Posted in: Musicouching by CHAN LEE PENG on June 23rd, 2008 | 80 Comments

Nowadays, songs have a role to play in almost every sphere of human activity. What better way to remember the best ones then to reminisce about what made them so wonderful?

The pace of life in town and city today, has been characterized as rush, rush, and more rush to do more and more things in as short a time as possible, undeniably this situation has caused us not being able to enjoy life fully. Here, songs play a vital role to comfort the vulnerable spirit, conflict and turmoil in everybody’s heart.

Good songs not only entertain to hear, but also a good therapy to relieve stress and agony of life. Nowadays, songs have a role to play in almost every sphere of human activity. What better thing than good songs do we have to sit down and reminisce on once in a while? Indeed, the songs are there every day for us to behold and all we have to do is to listen attentively.

Yesterday Once More – The Carpenters

Yesterday Once More: Memories of the Carpenters and Their Music is one of my top favorite songs. It was written by Richard Carpenter and John Bettis which turned out to be a hit song from an album of Now & Then. The lyrics left you a marvelous memory of being young. All ages from the young till the old like to listen to this song. I highly recommend this song for an English beginner learner as its English lyric is easily to understand. Additionally, it has a very beautiful rhythm which shows the beauty of art. You can listen to the song of Yesterday Once More here.

When I was young
Id listened to the radio
Waitin for my favorite songs
Waiting they played I’d sing along
It made me smile

Those were such happy times
And not so long ago
How I wondered where theyd gone
But theyre back again
Just like a long lost friend
All the songs I loved so well

(*) every sha-la-la-la
Every wo-wo-wo
Still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling
That theyre starting to sings
So fine

When they get to the part
Where hes breakin her heart
It can really make me cry
Just like before
Its yesterday once more

Lookin back on how it was
In years gone by
And the good times that I had
Makes today seem rather sad
So much has changed

    nice list of love songs plus a folksong, i know all these songs they were all big hits, i’m just wondering what that picture of album by the Eagles is all about, hotel california is one of my favorite though,it’s a lot of fun singing it while strumming the guitar…thanks Chan

    Great list. Thanks, Chan. These were very enjoyable. Music is such a nice diversion, therapeutic, as you stated.

  • lanne June 23rd, 2008 at 10:05 pm

    Nice list Chan. I Will Always Love You though, is a Dolly Parton song. And although the words themselves are beautiful, the reason behind Dolly writing it is a complete tear jerker.

  • KathySpring June 24th, 2008 at 3:27 am

    Great Job, I love Celion Dion as an artist. My first favorite song I ever had was my heart will gone on and also love will move mountians which just happens to be by her as well.

    Excellent selection … only 1 could have been added to make the list perfectly complete …. without John Lenon (Beatles) probably no list of all time best love song should have been completed!

  • Johanan Rakkav July 3rd, 2010 at 12:03 pm

    That’s indeed an awesome list, but like all such lists it’s highly subjective. Many (myself included) would argue that no such list would be complete without The Moody Blues’ “Nights In White Satin” and Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven”. Closer to the present, there’s Dan Fogelberg’s “Longer”. What about John Denver’s “Rocky Mountain High”? Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America”? Sting’s “Fields of Gold”? Weird Al Yankovic’s “White and Nerdy” or “Amish Paradise”? “All I Ask of You” from “Phantom of the Opera”? “Send in the Clowns”? The list could go on and on…and on… rather like Celine Dion’s lyrics. :)

  • rifhana ilham October 26th, 2010 at 10:59 am

    my top ten
    1. true- Spandau Ballet
    2. Careless Whisper – George Micheal
    3. Everybreath U take- Police
    4. Billie Jean- Micheal Jackson
    5.My Heart Will go on – Celine Dion
    6. Imagine – John Lennon
    7. Never Gonna Give u Up- Rick Astley
    8. Greatest Love of all – Whitney Houston
    9. Take My Breath Away- Berlin
    10.Fallin- Alicia Keys

    I based my list on the overall uniqueness of the song’s melody and words. U just hear the opening music and you will straight away know the song.

  • evviesands October 27th, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    Wow, lovely songs all of them. I think I’ve heard “Nothing’s gonna change my love for you in Spanish, though dunno who sang it.
    BTW, isn’t “Without You” originally by Air Supply? or so I thought. The versions by Air Supply and Mariah Carey are the ones that comes to my mind.
    And, why 9 and not 10? You really left me wanting more when I saw the “Hotel California” cover!
    Of course, everyone has the right to come up with their own list, whether we agree with this one or not, so, why don’t you write an article too? In fact, I think this article has inspired to writr my own.
