Did you know on average, we take 25,000 breathes a day without even realizing it? The following list ranks the best songs about breathing, voted by living, breathing ranker users like you. Almost all of these songs have breathing or breath in the title, but someone, like Bush's "Machinehead" only have it in the lyrics.

One of the most misinterpreted songs with breath in the title, The Police's "Every Breath You Take," is actually a song about a stalker, not true love.  This hit debuted and remained at #1 on the charts for eight consecutive weeks in 1983.  

On this list you'll find a wide array of artists including punk, classic, alternative rock and R & B, like Toni Braxton's "Breathe Again."  There will definitely be something you can add to your playlist.
