Hands are how we interact with the world, the tools that translate our will into action. This list sees hands doing every handy thing possible… In pockets, gloves, fists, feeding and coming second hand. But don’t take our word for it, take matters into your own hands and listen to this list of songs about hands.

Jewel’s “Hands” was a hit single off of her second album Spirit and saw massive radio play in the 90s. “Second Hand News” was the opening track off of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors, one of the best selling albums of all time.
