As it's easily one of the most common themes in music, we decided to rank this list of the best songs about beauty. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or the songwriter in this case. Several of the greatest songs about being beautiful promote inner beauty and loving who you are on the inside. Some of these songs reference beauty in terms of nature, while others allude to the beauty of life. Many songs on this list are about beautiful women or girls, written from the perspective of a smitten man who is admiring his crush.

Louis Armstrong's “What A Wonderful World” perfectly illustrates that beauty can be found all around us. This popular tune appears high up on our list of the top beauty songs. Other fantastic songs about beauty are “Beautiful” by Christina Aguilera and “Unpretty” by TLC. Both of these tunes empower young women against the pressure to be perfect.

Maybe you prefer something a bit heavier when it comes to tracks about beauty. Marilyn Manson's “The Beautiful People” is a sarcastic look at the privileged few. For a modern pop song about beauty, check out One Direction's infectious hit “What makes You Beautiful.”
