1. QueenBohemian Rhapsody

“This incorporates like 5 or so different styles of music in one song. And it’s still amazing. Plus it’s Queen, so boom. Already amazing.”

2. ColdplayViva la Vida

“It [the song] incorporates a lot of different classical instruments into a pop song. You can still differentiate the two styles.”

3. Cee Lo GreenForget You

“Because Cee Lo Green. You can finally find a sassy song sung by a guy, which never happens.”

4. Zach SobiechClouds

“It’s really easy to play on guitar, and it has a really nice backstory. The guy got cancer and wrote a bunch of music. Then he got famous and died.”

5. Christina PerriA Thousand Years

“Not because it’s in Twilight. But because it’s a really powerful song, music-wise.”

6. Eagles – Hotel California

“It’s a really catchy song”

7. Fun.Some Nights

“It starts out a capella and it’s really cool.”

8. Macklemore & Ryan LewisSame Love
