Best Childish Gambino Songs

Donald Glover is a writer, actor, comedian, and rapper (just to name a few.) His popularity is increasing as word spreads about how insanely talented he is. I made this list because I feel there are a lot of people who care about his music like me, and his music deserves to be discussed. The order is definitely up for debate.

The Top TenXW

1Freaks and Geeks

I love this song it inspired me very much

Uncountable quality puns and clever references. One of my favorites

Amazing song. Needs for recognition. Pumps you up

The lyrics are just too real

This entire song has so much heart, and is both lyrically and stylistically miles ahead of Freaks and Geeks

Very catchy, easily one of his top 3 songs.

Great song, bass is amazing with some good headphones.

Probably his greatest song

3Bonfire

From Camp. Others would say that this should be higher; I don't think he really tells a good story in this one, just raps about his love for women with with jokes thrown in. Though there's no denying the effect that his Casey Anthony line can have on anyone and everyone who listens to it.

First one I heard and still the best in my opinion. High energy, great punch lines, gym mix perfection. Good music. #1

Just found this song somehow but great song

Beats go hard, but the bars go harder. Easily his best song so far.

Even people who don't listen to Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) know this song... - danyelle444

The first song I ever heard by Gambino and the only thing I will ever thank Vevo for! every time this comes up a party and people are like "what is this crap? " I just guard the stereo until this song finishes, singing along the whole time!

This song is amazing in how intense and sincere it feels. Not to mention the ending which is hilarious

Great everything best

6That Power

This song is a good example of why Childish Gambino is my favorite rapper, period. He can add musically amazing beats behind his rap, he can sing, and in this song, he can even just sort of tell a story and the song is great.

Just a beast song, best outro ever. Ties up the album perfectly! Good lyrically but that beat is next level!

The first part of the song is great all by itself, but the outro/story at the end ties the whole Camp album together.

7Break (AOTL)

Look up the remix with kendrick and hopsin! So dope!

8Sunrise

From Camp. Personally, I think this is his third best song but I know the support isn't there yet, so I put it at #5. This is my pump-up song before anything important, and it has some of his best one-liners.

Seriously guys, the meaning of this song, the one-liners, the wit, just Oh my god, the whole thing is perfect. Donald

From Camp. Tells the story of his childhood, growing up the only black kid in his school, or the whitest black kid in his other school. Amazing chorus that really sets the tone for his whole album.

"He's saving up so we can get our own place
In the projects, man that sounds fancy to me
They called me fat nose, my mom say you handsome to me. "

13Retro

The beat of this one is killer; reminds me of some 8-bit arcade games mixed with beautiful piano music. At the same time, this is one of the easiest to listen to as it's quite smooth and relaxing, with great lyrics.
