The great part about music is that you can write a song about anything, but for this list we're ranking the best songs about being blind. Some of the songs on this poll are about being blinded by a light, and many are metaphorically about being blinded by love or something else. Do you have a favorite blindness song? Whether it's rock, rap, country, or anything in between, we want you to vote up your favorites on this list of songs about being blind. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good being blind songs are missing, so feel free to contribute to the list. We've included YouTube videos to accompany the songs when available, so think of this page as a blind songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include "I Go Blind" by Hootie and the Blowfish, "Eyesight to the Blind" by The Who, and "Loving Blind" by Clint Black. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has being blind in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about being not able to see, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
