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 passion. It could be passion between two lovers, or maybe a song about being passionate with your goals and dreams. Do you have a favorite passion 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 passionate. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good passion 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 passion songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include Talk About the Passion by R.E.M., Power and the Passion by Midnight Oil, and Passion by Ja Rule. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has passion in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about passion, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
