There are songs, and then there are lyrical masterpieces. We all have at least one favorite song that we simply cannot help but sing out loud. That one song, without which our life would be incomplete. You may be alone in your car or at a party, but when it plays, you know you just cannot hold back!
Here’s a list of such songs that make you scream, “Hey! This is my jam!”
1. Snow (Hey Oh) – Red Hot Chili Peppers
It all starts with that sweet guitar intro and explodes into a bass track that you can never forget. Add to that Anthony Kiedis’ awesome voice, and you get the perfect sing-along track. Just breathe in and let it take over.
2. Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now – Starship
While the ’80s will always be remembered for awesome disco anthems, this is one gem that topped the charts all over. It is an ode to the musical legacy of the generation and an inspiration to lovers all over.
3. D’yer Mak’er – Led Zeppelin
Now here’s a melody so good that people try to replicate it to this very day. But the original will always rule. You know you can never have enough Zeppelin in your life.
4. Don’t Stop Believin’ – Journey
It is a journey down memory lane with this one. Lyrics so simple, meaning so profound, you just can’t hold those emotions back. In you heart and mind, “It goes on and on and on and on…”
5. Eye of the Tiger – Survivor
You can’t listen to this song without picturing Sylvester Stallone running up a flight of stairs. The perfect morale booster, Eye of the Tiger has to be on your playlist, and you have to sing it out without any inhibitions. It is especially useful during workout sessions at the gym.
6. You Give Love a Bad Name – Bon Jovi
Every one of Bon Jovi’s songs leaves you mesmerized when it plays on the stereo. But this song has a way about itself, that makes it enter the deepest corners of your brains and stay there for ages.
7. Let It Be – The Beatles
When you find yourself in times of trouble, listen to this song. Let it Be shows why The Beatles and their music will always be eternal.
8. Pichle Saat Dinon Mein – Rock On
Another simple yet rocking anthem, featuring Farhan Akhtar’s rustic voice. The singer recounts his disastrous week, and while doing so inspires us to chime in and go Na Na Na Na Na!
9. Tiny Dancer – Elton John
When Tiny Dancer plays, you know you have to stand up and join in. A lot like that scene in Almost Famous, where everyone in the bus starts singing out of nowhere.
10. Piano Man – Billy Joel
Though this may not be Billy Joel’s best track of all time, it definitely has more heart and memorable lyrics. Sing us a song, you’re the Piano Man. Sing us a song tonight.
These songs are sure to send shivers of pure joy down your spine. Which song gets you into the groove?
