My top 10 favorite songs of all the time

Here are my top 10 songs of all the time:

10) Elissa - Ayshalak

Arabic music is not really my thing. But Ayshalak is different, it has Western Influence. Ayshalak, the main song of Elissa's third album "Ayshalak" was a huge commercial success. Elissa, the famous pop-diva in the Middle East, turned song upside down with her beautiful voice. Unforgettable song.

9) Kodaline - All I Want

This song was featured by Google; that's how got I to know the song. It had me at the beginning: "All I want is nothing more. To hear you knocking at my door. Cause if I could see your face once more. I could die a happy man I'm sure. When you said your last goodbye."

8) Coldplay - Viva La Vida

Viva La Vida is possibly Coldplay's most successful song ever. Coldplay's wikipedia page is twice larger than Kanye West's entire wikipedia page. The lyrics to the song contain historical and Christian references, and the track is built around a repeating string section in unison with a digital processed piano with a timpani background. This song alone sold 7.1 million copies worldwide and has a grammy award. The song is dope, it has been played everywhere and covered by hundreds of artists.

7) Evanescence - Bring me back to life

Along with Immortal, this song is Goddess, bring me back to life is one the hottest rock songs ever written in history.  It also features guest vocals from Paul McCoy of the band 12 Stones. Wind-up released "Bring Me to Life" in 2003 as the lead single from Evanescence's debut studio album, Fallen. The song delivers genres from alternative metal to rap rock and gothic metal, and is considered a nu metal classic. The band won in the category for Best Hard Rock Performance at the 46th Grammy Awards where the song was also nominated for Best Rock Song.

6) Loreen - My Heart Is Refusing Me

Phenomenal and original song. Amazing underrated song. Did not get the justice it deserves. Well, at least 50 million views were expected in the song. The song peaked to number 9 on the Swedish Singles Chart. She co-wrote the song with Moh Denebi and Björn Djupström.

5) Foxes - Let go for tonight

Let Go for Tonight is a song by English singer and songwriter Foxes from her debut studio album Glorious (2014). The song was released as a digital download in the United Kingdom on 23 February 2014 as the album's second single. It entered the UK Singles Chart at number 7. This is the most underrated song of all the time. It deserved at least 100 million views. The talented singer who dropped out of college for good, was attacked and criticized for not being beautiful. 

4) Hurricane - 30 Seconds to Mars

The song was written by lead vocalist and songwriter Jared Leto and produced by Leto, Flood and Steve Lilywhite. The sexual and controversial music video got banned by MTV.

3) Skillet - Comatose

Skillet had it made the song for Jesus, but I people have interpretations for it. Comatose is the seventh full-length album released by the Christian rock band Skillet. Released on October 3, 2006, this album continues their previous album's trend of downplaying the keyboard elements that were prominent in previous releases in favor of more orchestral elements and distorted guitars. Comatose has sold over 500,000 units and has been certified Gold as of November 3, 2009, their first record to do so. On December 6, 2007, the album also received a Grammy Award nomination forBest Rock or Rap Gospel Album. A deluxe edition of Comatose was then released in stores on December 26, 2007 and a live DVD of their headlining tour in support of the record was released in the fall 2008.

2)  Another Love - Tom Odell

British talent. This song is legendary; once I listened to it, my life was never the same. Two years after it has been released, I have listened to the song and once I did, the rest is history. The song peaked at number 10 on the UK Singles Chart; the song also charted in Belgium, Ireland and the Netherlands. It became Odell's first top 10 hit in the UK after it was placed at number 10 in the single chart on 29 June 2013.The song was used in the episode "Do You Remember the First Time?" of season 6 of The CW series The Vampire Diaries.

1) Chandelier - Sia

That was obviously predictable. I already have a blog post for the song chandelier.  It was written by Sia Furler and Jesse Shatkin. For me, Chandelier is the best song ever written in history, better than John Lennon's imagine, better than any Metallica song, better than any Micheal Jackson song, better than any Madonna's song, it is the best song ever in the history of music. The song was supposed to go to Rihanna but it was so personal Sia couldn't give it away because the song appeared to be personal for Sia. In the United States, the single peaked at number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Sia's first single to appear on the Hot 100, as well as her first top ten single as a lead artist on the chart, and has sold over 2 million copies in the country. The song received four Grammy nominations for Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance, with its video receiving a nomination for Best Music Video at the 57th Grammy Awards. A music video for the song was directed by Sia and Daniel Askill, while it was choreographed by Ryan Heffington. It features Maddie Ziegler performing the choreography. In support of the single and 1000 Forms of Fear, Sia performed "Chandelier" on a number of shows including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Late Night with Seth Meyers and Jimmy Kimmel Live!
