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

The environment has always been one of the greatest inspirations for any musician or songwriter. Artists like Dave Matthews and Sting know that music about the outdoors and enjoying mother nature can really make you feel like you're one with the earth, especially when you listen to it outside. This is a ranked list of all songs about nature, as voted on by music fans like you. Some of the songs included below may have the words "nature"  in the lyrics or title, while others are only about nature as a subject or theme. These songs are about mountains, trees, rivers and the various other beautiful parts of the planet.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid wilderness songs that are thematically similar. Vote for the nature 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. Items featured on this poll include everything from “Kern River” to “One Sweet World.”
