20. Cry (All I Ever Wanted, 2009)

“This song killed me when Rachel sang it on Glee last week. Such a heartfelt song, and anyone who’s been through a breakup and really cried their heart out will completely relate to this. Listen to it if you absolutely need to “cry” it out!”

19. A Moment Like This (Thankful, 2003)

“This is literally her crowning moment and is the epitome of what a winning song and song should be. This needs to be higher on the list for its significance for American Idol emergence of future pop sensations.”

18. Heartbeat Song (Piece by Piece, 2015)

“I love Kelly Clarkson. I was so excited for this new song. The hook is catchy, and it is a GREAT song to have in your running playlist. I am hoping that Piece by Piece is as good as her All I Ever Wanted Album. This is truly a pop song if there ever was one. I find myself humming it for a while after hearing it.”

17. Miss Independent (Thankful, 2003)

“I like songs that have a strong emphasis on women’s independence. Kelly Clarkson has an amazing voice. It definitely keeps me motivated when I walk.”

16. Irvine (My December 2007)

“Every time I hear this song I cry. Not because it is sad, but because its meaning is so powerful. I listen to the lyrics and I am stunned. I listen to Kelly’s non-autotuned, non-edited voice and I am stunned. Everything about this song is amazing. It is her second best song (next to sober). Love Kelly.”

15. Never Again (My December 2007)

“I just love this song, the music video is amazing and it just really speaks to me. I is a good song to rock out and dance to but also to listen to the lyrics. I just really love the song and I want to spread the good word to everyone and anyone I can! so tell your friends and just listen to it.”

14. Piece by Piece (Piece by Piece, 2015)

“Kelly Clarkson’s Piece by Piece is an emotional song that speaks volumes of what it’s like to be abandoned, neglected or abused by a father and then picked back up by another person and rebuilt – piece by piece. To be shown what true love is. What a real father is. This song is powerful beyond words. It’s inspirational and incredible.”

13. Invincible (Piece by Piece, 2015)

“My New summer anthem. I have loved Kelly Clarkson ever since I first saw her on American Idol season1. But I haven’t always loved the genres that she has done. But thank God Kelly has returned to her pop/soul routes. And this song is a prime example of a call and answer type gospel song. It is really beautiful and uplifting. Kelly sings about overcoming obstacles and getting “beat down like a waterfall” and resurrected.”

12. People Like Us (Greatest Hits – Chapter One, 2012)

“I love this song! It makes me feel like I’m never left out. How do you not vote for this?!?! My favorite line is: “they can’t do nothing to u, they can’t do nothing to me, this is the life that we live, this is the life that we plead, so throw your fists in the air, come out if you dare, tonight we’re gonna change forever! “”

11. Sober (My December 2007)

“This is my ultimate favorite song. I have listened to this song over 100 times and still loving it every time. This song is just so beautiful and meaningful and it always puts me in a scene when I break down. This is just the most beautiful song ever.”

10. Dark Side (Stronger, 2011)

“This song made me feel like it has been written for me even though I don’t have any physical or mental disorder but gave me a way to feel the way physically or mentally challenged people do and made me realize there is no difference between me and them.”

9. Catch My Breath (Greatest Hits – Chapter One, 2012)

“Vocals are amazing. To have her range is practically superhuman. “Turning my cheek for the sake of the show” is my favorite line. The song can be interpreted in so many different ways, and is beautiful no matter which way you see it.”

8. Mr. Know It All (Stronger, 2011)

“This song was perfect until it become overplayed on the radio. I wouldn’t be surprised if you heard this track before while driving. I can easily say it has an amazing message and it can uplift your spirits. This song wasn’t particularly my cup of tea but it was calming and it uplifted me when I needed a self esteem boost. Now that I’m older I don’t really understand why it was so popular, but it was there for the hard times. If you’re into music like this, you should get it.”

7. Already Gone (All I Ever Wanted, 2009)

“It’s her best song by far. She always delivers her song well. But I think this song is the most excellent of all. I liked the all-over quality of the song and I appreciate the background. It does not have noisy drums in it like before.”

6. Behind These Hazel Eyes (Breakaway, 2004)

“The video is so perfect. My favorite part is during the bridge where she hits that high note on “anymore.” It took me forever to master. Also, I love Kelly’s style of being independent, but this was the first mournful song of hers I heard and I LOVE IT!”

5. Breakaway (Breakaway, 2004)

“There are quite a few of Kelly’s songs that I really like but I particularly love this one because of the uplifting lyrics. For me if the life you are born into isn’t the one you want, then its about breaking away, working hard and doing whatever it takes to make a better one for yourself. Very inspirational!”

4. My Life Would Suck Without You (My Life Would Suck Without You, 2009)

“Incredibly Infectious song. The lyrics and Melody are fantastic as are her harmonies. The way she blends her voice is pure pop perfection. Makes you want to dance and jump for joy every time you hear it. Ms. Clarkson simply has an amazing and incredibly powerful voice. It is like no other. She exudes such strength and confidence and this song is her at her very best”

3. Since U Been Gone (Breakaway, 2004)

“This song makes me so sad cause of when I broke up with my ex I drove an hour and half home listening to this song… So every time I hear this song I cry so hard. The intense, energetic, fast pace makes this song a one to listen to on repeat!”

2. Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) (Stronger, 2011)

“This is Definitely Kelly’s best song. No wonder that it got her so many awards. It touches everyone’s heart. It has a deep meaning which shows the true personality of the writer I. E Kelly Clarkson. It has something mysterious to it that I will never be able to realize. But through this song, we penetrate into the mind of Kelly which is in deep sorrow, still not giving up. I honestly love the vocals and the high notes and obviously, her beautiful voice.”

1. Because of You (Breakaway, 2004)

“It really makes you see how life is, that it isn’t a fantasy, and its not perfect. And this song really makes me see that. I never have thought about it this deeply, but this song really reflects what life can be all about. It may stink really bad sometimes, but we can always move on. Time can always heal.”
