List Rules Songs with change in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about change as a subject.

This is a ranked list of all songs about change, as voted on by music fans like you. Songs like "And The Beat Goes On" by The Whispers put a positive spin on the idea of making changes and embracing new things, while others depict the idea of change and transformation being inevitable and frightening.
