Best Childish Gambino Songs

August 5, 2015 - 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. Don't agree with the list?

The Top Ten

1
Freaks and Geeks
I love this song it inspired me very much
Amazing song. Needs for recognition. Pumps you up
Uncountable quality puns and clever references. One of my favorites

2Bonfire
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

This song is amazing in how intense and sincere it feels. Not to mention the ending which is hilarious
Personally think this is his best

5Sweatpants
Some of his best lines are in this jam! One of my all-time favorites!
My favorite. Too addicting after listening to it a couple times.
Great song, Great Lyrics, definitely in the Top Ten
[Newest]Should be number 1

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.
First song I ever listened to by Gambino.. By far my favorite
Best pump up song!

9Outside
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. "
Seriously guys, the meaning of this song, the one-liners, the wit, just Oh my god, the whole thing is perfect. Donald

10Sober
A slow, smooth song that still fits gambino's style
How is this not on the list?
Love his singing voice

The Contenders

11Unnecessary
(featuring Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul)
My favorite, freaks and geeks after

12Oakland

13Telegraph Ave
One of his best songs that people don't know. great song to cruise to at night
Best song to drive to. Great song overall
By far his best song

14Shoulda Known
This and NOTGOING BACK are the best
Best. Hands down you shoulda known

15Bitch, Look at Me Now

16The Worst Guys
This song has a mad beat and childish also spits a few bars at quick pace, it also has some hilarious punch lines. It includes my other favourite rapper, chance the rapper.

17Retro

18Crawl
This is the hardest Childish Gambino song, has the greatest lyrics, and is an AWESOME pump up song
This song is a bit strange but 100% in a good way and worth listening too

19Not Going Back
Some of the lines in this song are just crazy good. This, freaks and geeks and outside are probably my 3 favourite of his songs, but then again, I change my favourites every few weeks. There's just way to many. Geez Donald.
The final verse is probably the best verse Gambino has ever done.

20Kids
Why isn't this more near the top ten? This is one of his best.
Hands down my favourite Gambino song.
