The Top 1000 Songs of All Time

This is the granddaddy of song lists. It has been created by compiling hundreds of best-of song lists into this one definitive list. Other song lists have built-in biases, depending on the publication or institution behind the list. Even these lists that solicit public vote will be subjective as they are gathering votes from their own audience!

The focus in crafting this list was to weed out the individual idiosyncrasies of those individual lists. Average enough lists together and the subjectivity is slowly erased. To this end, every attempt was made to gather lists representative of every possible genre and era. Chart figures, airplay, and sales data were also figured into the equation. The end result is that everyone should find something they like on this list. Of course, there will also be plenty to feed the haters. That’s fine. The goal is to represent as much different music as possible and truly capture those songs that best symbolize the history of recorded music.

Songs are listed in chronological order; dates in parentheses are for the song’s first chart appearance unless noted otherwise. Click on a song title to see its DMDB page with more details, including a video, lyrics, a link to buy the song, chart stats, sales figures, and general info about the song. Also, some songs are followed by one of the se graphics:

Links to videos on other sites – almost always on YouTube. These are not always the best quality and Dave’s Music Database assumes no responsibility for others who may have posted copyrighted material.

Direct links, generally to Amazon.com, to purchase the song. These are typically digital downloads and not physical singles or albums.
