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. Some of the songs included below may have the words "change" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about change as a subject or theme.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the change songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more.
