Here’s the Most Amazing, Most Awesome and My Favourite Best 20 English songs ever list. Music can win hearts, it has the magical quality of healing whether it is a bad mood or differences between you and your loved ones. There is a song for every occasion, for every mood so here in this Post I’m presenting to you Guys my All-time Favourite my Best English Songs ever, these are 20 of them. As I’m romantic at heart ;) So most of these songs are of the same genre. It was a very tough job segregating and selecting these 20 songs amongst all, so I haven’t or let’s say I couldn’t further number all these songs.

Along with the songs, I’m providing links for the “Free Mp3 Download” for songs, the “Official Music Video” of the songs, the original “Lyrics” of each song and even the “Free Guitar Chords/Tabs” for each song. So hope you’ll like the Post.

Here’s the List:

 
 
 
 

Eric Clapton – Tears In Heaven

Eric Clapton – Tears In Heaven

“Tears in Heaven” is a beautiful ballad written by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings about the pain and loss Clapton felt following the death of his four-year-old son, Conor. Conor fell from a window of the 53rd-floor New York apartment of his mother’s friend on March 20, 1991. Clapton, who arrived at the apartment shortly after the accident, was visibly distraught ever since. This is one of Clapton’s most successful songs, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the U.S., featuring a classical guitar as the lead instrument. You can feel the sorrow in his voice, it’s too good. Also do listen to Wonderful Tonight by Clapton.

Metallica – Nothing Else Matters

Metallica – Nothing Else Matters

I simply love this song, and I can listen to it day and night without a halt. Also my Favourite Metallica song. Singer and rhythm guitarist James Hetfield wrote the song (credited to Hetfield/Ulrich) while he was on the phone with his then girlfriend. Since he held the phone with one hand, he plucked the four open strings of a standard E-minor chord with the other, which eventually made up the first two bars of the song. The lyrics, which talk about being “so close, no matter how far”, were also dedicated to his girlfriend, indicating the bond they shared even when Hetfield was on tour. Other great songs by Metallica that I like are Unforgiven I, II, III, Turn the page.

Led Zeppelin – Stairway To Heaven

Led Zeppelin – Stairway to Heaven

It wouldn’t be wrong to say, that this time-less classic is my Favourite song. I’ve been in awe of the song since the very first time I saw it on VH1, Jimmy Page playing his Double-Deck guitar left me mesmerized. “Stairway to Heaven” is often rated among the greatest rock songs of all time. It continues to top radio lists of the greatest rock songs, as well as topping a 2006 Guitar World readers’ poll of greatest guitar solos. Also please give a listen to Kashmir by Led Zeppelin.

Bryan Adams – Please Forgive Me

Bryan Adams – Please forgive me

Among my Favourite solo Artists, this one is a soothing master-piece by this Canadian legend, Bryan Adams. It is one of his greatest and amongst his most popular songs. The single reached number two in the UK, number seven in the US and number one in Australia. The song was praised by critics upon its release, and has given Adams one of his best chart performances to date. The song was co-written and produced by Mutt Lange. It was a massive radio hit all over the world, and became an instant hit amongst Adams fans. The single has sold over 3 million copies worldwide.

Bryan Adams – Summer Of ‘69

Bryan Adams – Summer of ‘69

This song needs no introduction, another Classic by Bryan Adams. I personally have many fond memories with the song. It was written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallace in their basement studio. The song went through a number of changes because neither Adams nor Vallace was convinced it was a strong enough song to be featured on the album. In their first draft, the lyric “summer of ’69” appeared only once. At that time the two were planning to title it “Best Days of My Life” instead. While the lyric; “best days of my life” appeared seven times in the first draft, on the final draft it had been replaced by “summer of ’69” and only appeared two times throughout the song.

Eagles – Hotel California

Eagles – Hotel California

One of the Most famous songs of all times, the song has got a really amazing and catchy tune and rhythm to it that makes you fall for it from the very first listen. The song is rated highly in many rock music lists and polls, though it was not met with critical acclaim right away. Rolling Stone magazine, for example, originally spoke poorly of Hotel California in the very same issue in which it featured The Eagles on the cover. As one of the group’s most popular and well-known songs, “Hotel California” has been a concert staple for the band since its release. “Hotel California” topped the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for one week.

George Michael- Careless Whispers

George Michael- Careless Whispers

The magical sound of the saxophone riff, that takes you to another level is what makes this song Spectacular other than the fine singing. The song was George Michael’s first solo single although he was still performing in Wham! at the time. It was released as a single and became a huge commercial success on both sides of the Atlantic. It reached number one in nearly 25 countries, selling about six million copies worldwide. Michael said that he wrote it “in his head” during work and that he recalls coming up with the saxophone riff whilst boarding a number 32 bus on the way home. Also listen to “Last Christmas” by the singer.

Michael Jackson – Beat It

Michael Jackson – Beat It

How can a list of great songs be complete without the presence of The King of Pop, MJ aka Michael Jackson, ‘Beat It’ is a huge commercial success, it was awarded two Grammy Awards and two American Music Awards and was inducted into the Music Video Producers Hall of Fame. “Beat It” (along with the song’s music video) propelled Thriller into becoming the best-selling album of all time. The single was certified platinum in 1989. The music video for “Beat It” helped establish Jackson as an international pop icon. The video was Jackson’s first treatment of black youth and the streets. Both “Beat It” and “Thriller” are notable for their “mass choreography” of synchronized dancers, a Jackson trademark. Other great songs by MJ include Billie Jean, Bad, They don’t really care for us.

Turtles – So Happy Together

Turtles – So happy together

“So Happy Together” is a lesser known song in my list, great music amazing meaningful lyrics about finding true love and be satiated with it. It is a 1967 song by the The Turtles’ album of the same name. Released in February 1967, the song knocked The Beatles’ “Penny Lane” out of the #1 slot for three weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. It was the group’s only chart-topper. “Happy Together” reached #12 on the UK Singles Chart in April 1967. The song was written by Garry Bonner and Alan Gordon, former members of a band known as The Magicians.

Goo Goo Dolls – Iris

Goo Goo Dolls – Iris

Again one of my Most favourite songs ever, this one was even my Caller-tune song for a long time ;) “Iris” is a song by American alternative rock band the Goo Goo Dolls. Originally written for the soundtrack of 1998 film City of Angels, the song was later included on the band’s sixth album Dizzy Up the Girl. “Iris” has contributed greatly to the band’s success. It is the longest charting number one single in Billboard Hot 100 Airplay history with 18 weeks in the number one spot. The instrumentals in the song are heavily driven by guitar riffs, mandolin, violins, and cellos, with a steady drum beat beneath. The acoustic guitar in the song gives a distinctive sound as it is in an odd tuning, with 5 of the 6 strings tuned to D. This gives a ringing effect similar to a 12-string guitar. Also listen to Name, Better Days, Black Balloon by Goo Goo Dolls.

Scorpions – Wind Of Change

Scorpions – Winds of change

Another classic song, which as a matter of fact is not that famous. I simply love its tune. “Wind of Change” is a 1990 power ballad written by Klaus Meine, vocalist of the German heavy metal band Scorpions. It appeared on their 1990 album Crazy World, but did not become a worldwide hit single until 1991, when it topped the charts in Germany and across Europe. The song is currently the 10th best-selling single of all time in Germany. Worldwide, this single sold over 19 million copies, making it one of the top fifty best-selling singles of all time. It is the highest ever selling song in Germany, reputedly selling over 6 million copies in that country alone, and is frequently played on television shows presenting video footage of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
