Top English Song Lyrics

When I"m Sixty Four - The Beatles 

This song is one of the top English love songs of the Beatles, which stands out because it captures a type of love that isn't often expressed musically. "Put the kettle on, love ", instead of "I'd take a bullet for you." It has the perfect amount of silliness, is endearing, and is full of whimsy.

Digital Witness - St Vincent

The internet-fostered illusory intimacy is the subject of one of the best songs ever composed. St Vincent, a.k.a. Texas singer-songwriter Annie Clark, sang about how social media-fueled our narcissism and gave us a delusion of our status in the world.
