The Top TenXW

1Elephant Gun

One of my favorite songs of all time and the second Beirut song I ever heard and arguably one of their best of all time

2Postcards from Italy

My favorite song that makes me nostalgic every time I hear it... Also the sole reason why I bought a ukelele... I hope one day to sing this to someone who I love

The most simple yet perfect song I can imagine...

4East Harlem

Best on the Riptide. One of the most melodically perfect composition I have ever heard blending ukelele, piano, and horns all into one masterpiece

5Santa Fe

2nd Best on the Riptide. Has a pop folk feel to it

6The Gulag Orkestar
7A Candle's Fire

Easily one of the best on the Riptide album next to Sante Fe and East Harlem.. A little short but sweet with horns and horns

8La Llorona

One that might not be on others lists but definitely a badass song that makes me think of a western standoff

This one grew on me after awhile... Definitely not Beiruts best but worth mentioning.

The Contenders

11My Night With the Prostitute from Marseille

Amazing melody that I listened to endlessly

12Rhineland (Heartland)
