IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER. Good songwriting is the difference between a song you listen to as a phase and one that sticks with you your whole life.
2 Minutes to Midnight
2:45 to 4:10 really make this one stand out in terms of songwriting
Se A Cabo
Most Shpongle songs have superb songwriting, so this one was hard to choose.
Parabola and Lateralus at close seconds, but The Pot takes the cake here for being truly and thoroughly unique, even from other Tool songs.
If you've heard this song, no explanation is necessary
Flesh and the Power it Holds
Not huge into the Beatles but I figured I'd be crucified if I didn't include one song. Really, this song was excellently written.
Kush & Corinthians (His Pain)
Many would scratch their heads at this, but this song is all about buildup and the structure really accents the emotion Kendrick's trying to convey
Dazed and Confused
Because Stairway would've been a cop out. Actually, this song is just as well written IMO
|11||The Mars Volta|
Take The Veil Cerpin Taxt
Just about any Opeth song is at least as well written as any others on this list, but I had to choose one.
Lucky number 13
