The Top Ten

1
Strobe
Includes quite possibly the greatest beat drop in the history of electronic music. An absolute masterpiece, the Mona Lisa of electronic.
I created this list and I am happy that strobe is number one , I just love this song it is amazing and I hope it stays number one, for a long time
At first when I heard this, I was like "What's this? " then it slowly began to kick in and gradually t became Deadmau5 at his BEST. Without a doubt, deserved Number
1!
[Newest]That song made me a deadmau5 fan...

2Ghosts N Stuff
Definitely the most epic Deadmau5 song. It's pure genius. If you've never heard Deadmau5, play this song first!
I love this song... It makes me feel something different...
Love this song for its high energy. This can go on a playlist for the gym. I think this song is miles better than their other stuff.
[Newest]WAY better than Strobe. It's iconic of deadmau5 and is his quintessential song. Deserves to be #1.

3Aural Psynapse
This song is his later masterpieces and definitely his best. Being completely honest I think he may have outdone strobe with this one... The melody, the build up, the gradual progression throughout the song. This song is amazing.
The song really does put you into a trance. From the basslines, the saw lead melody, and the mixing of the song is truly a work of art. To be honest, I like this song better than Strobe, which is no. 1 on this list. It's that good.
So anthemic, and when it gets to halfway through at the quiet part you can just space out! Only for the awesome anthem to return! Up there with Strobe and Ghosts n Stuff.
[Newest]Just listened to this song for the first time having seen it on this list and I agree with many others... This is even better than Strobe or Faxing Berlin (my old fave! )

4Raise Your Weapon
Awesome song, eight minutes of pure awesomeness. The dubstep drop at about minute 6 makes the song
The beginning of the song really hits you deeply, you get hooked to the song immediately, and when the drop at around 4 minutes happens, you just simple can't believe how amazing this song is, mix of Dubstep and House= Amazing!
Perfection from A2Z... This track brings you mind in another world... It's so unreal! The mau5 is magic!
[Newest]Minute 6 is where the song start

5I Remember
No matter how young or old you are, some way, some how, in some shape or form, this song will connect and stay with you for the rest of your life. You may find yourself moving along to its catchy sound or even find yourself thinking of a memory that you will never forget. From its structure, chords, timeless lyrics and vocals, beat, everything about this song is just perfect. This is a 10 minute timeless masterpiece of the 21st century, that stay with ALL MUSIC until the end of time. This is definitely one of Deadmau5's best.
it has so so perfect music... and thanxs to dead mau 5 for extending it to a 10 min. track..
Slow, calm, and somehow energetic all at once. Incredible to listen to in quiet or in dances. Everything about I remember is fresh and incredibly fun to listen to
[Newest]With no doubt this is my second best track from Deadmau5, so simple and yet powerful sounds that will send you deep into your best state of mind.


6The Veldt
A warm and happy song, just paced so well. The vocals from Chris James just make it complete, and add a wondrous and astoundingly beautiful song.
Back his best here guys... Deadmau5 of yester year officially returned. I could listen to this on a continuous loop and drive and keep driving...
If you don't know the story behind this, try watching the clip after reading about 'The Veldt' on a website like Wikipedia. Knowing the story it's based onn makes it real nice. I love the melody too, very relaxing.
[Newest]I live right next to chris james laugh out loud

7Some Chords
Every segment of this song, from beginning to end, is gold. Easily the best song on the album along with Animal rights.
Sick Beat!
The Best Song I've ever heard in my life by the best dj in the world
Its a song with more heard as ghosts and stuff or strobe or animal rights or moar ghosts and stuf. I think its the second most popular song of deadmau5.
[newest]
I don't know why but I love this track

8Professional Griefers
Such a sick beat, definitely one of the best deadmau5 songs, especially for parties.
This isn't number one because it's new! But in a few months! It will be on top!
This song has amazing kick and beat to it! I highly recommend getting the non-vocal version though...
[Newest]One heck of a song it is, you can't control your body when this song comes up


9Right This Second
This song has some of the sickest drops in any deadmau5 song... the beginning of the song has a long intro that is completely mesmerizing then drops straight into a reoccurring loop, followed by another nasty drop... This song is the best song ever by deadmau5, it has my vote for number 1!
Midway through this song, when the buildup finally climaxes, it sends shivers along my skin every time. It really does sum up why I love deadmau5.
BEAUTIFUL! I rate this track second I heard it 5 min ago and can't even say how awesome it is Wow! 10 out of 10...
[Newest]This song's got sick tunes


10Moar Ghosts 'n' Stuff
Ok, it doesn't compare with Strobe but at least deserve top 5.
Seems like a remix of ghosts n' stuff and is more energetic, but I love strobe it just takes to long to get into it, again both amazing songs!
Excellent song to blast and rock out to while driving. I mean, it isn't the best song but it deserves to be higher up on the list
[Newest]Not so cool but yet it is cool

The Contenders

11Arguru
Amazing song to listen to, it deserves far more attention than it gets at the moment. While it doesn't match up to something such as Strobe its still a very good song!
A beautiful song... Then completely switches into a really cool bassy song love it If I made a list... Would be in my top 3
Insane :D Wish his newer stuff still sounded this good
[Newest]His best original piece! Its different than his other songs as it is has this trancy feel and it sets a great mood to the song, as if you falling into an inevitable black hole. It's underlooked but you'll not regret listening to this.

12Bleed
I honestly believe of all his songs this is the only one that could surpass strobe. The raw emotion this portrays just astounds me. And it is such a shame that it is in 23. I cry when listening to this song. It brings back the times in my life where I have been at my lowest or at my peak, it shows me my goals and my achievements. So you can vote some chords or chtulu sleeps, but is that really his best work?
One of the best songs! By Deadmau5! I always listen to this when I'm sad and It make feel better! I love Deadmau5... One of the best Dj's ever! He really knows how to make music.
Awesome composition and great build up... Deadmau5 is the best artist... No other artist can make this type of composition... Its unique...

13HR 8938 Cephei
This music trances me so good, one of the best from deadmau5 for sure! Deserves a better place
Not as good as strobe or aural psynapse, but definitely top 5 material
You need a good stereo to truly appreciate this and I guarantee that every time you listen to this masterpiece you will hear something new!

This is the absolute epitome of electronic music journey for me, the those chords!
[newest]
It feels very trancey with brilliant chords and such nice style. Definitely one of my favorite Deadmau5 songs.

14There Might Be Coffee
There's something about the way this track begins that really sets me into such a great mood. I just love this track.
This is a career landmark for Deadmau5. In terms of quality, expect something similar to "Aural Synapse" and dare I say it, "Strobe. " Yeah... I cannot stress this enough... It is THAT good.
I was just scrolling through deamau5's songs, saw his new album, saw this song and said "That's a peculiar name".
I listened to the song and it was love at first sight. I may be biased for my absolute love of violins. The beat is nice, very deadmau5esque. There is also the constant drumming of the bass line. The harmony makes me feel like I'm underwater.
[Newest]I wanted a fast way to get out of my bed and without coffee, this track gave me that!

15Animal Rights
Best use of musical instruments so far. Has an unprecedented amount of genius that makes this track one of Deadmau5's bests songs ever. Strobe was good, this was amazing.
Best song he has every made. PERIOD. Friend introduced me to this track a few months ago, can't stop listening to it!
Perfect amount of build up. There is more variation in the use of instruments.
[Newest]This is one of my favourite deadmau5 songs out there. And hey, ANIMAL RIGHTS ARE IMPORTANT! Ha ha!

16Faxing Berlin
The best song by far (the original mix of course). It has nearly everything you can ask for in a song! Way to go Deadmau5 I donĀ't get why I just started listening to him this year!
This song is amazing! Strobe is the best but this Rocks! I could listen to this for ages... It's a great listen. I recommend you look it up if you haven't heard it.
This may not be as well known as his other songs, but it is still a great song from his best album. This is one of his classics, and one of the first I heard by him.

17Brazil (2nd Edit)
I can't begin to comprehend how this isn't higher up in the list. This has the sickest, Spaced out vibe to it that is amazing. This song is the kind that gives you butterflies in your stomach from listening to it.
Come on guys!. This song is amazing. It has an amazing atmosphere and a perfect melody. It was because of this song that I make myself a Deadmau5 fan!
How is this song not on the list yet? Great song I really only like about 10 of his songs and this is definitely one of them. Strobe is still the best though
[Newest]Better sounds and Detailing samples.

18Cthulhu Sleeps
Literally one of his bests songs, its no strobe but this song definitely deserves top 10
Awesome song. My favorite by far because of its unique beat drop. The chill section starting at 30 is simply amazing. It hypnotized you.
How is it not even in the top ten?! It's by far better than Strobe and Raise Your Weapon!
[newest]
Defenetly a top 10 track. It's one of his best and it has the best build up in history.

Headphonex12345


19Not Exactly
I could say something like "Sick Beat! " or "Come on guys, vote it up! " But honestly, this is one of the best deadmau5 tracks ever produced. It is perfectly paced and is thoroughly enjoyable. At least in the Top 10 for me.
Yeah um what's with the mix up, kick some chords down a few pegs and put this up in the top 10 it deserves to be in. If you don't believe me check out the 2010 mix, I think it's better than strobe!
Really cool song. My favorite. Can't believe it's so underrated! This should be in the top 5 at least, together with Strobe, Raise your Weapon, The Veldt and Profesional Griefers. I love Faxing Berlin and Brazil too.
[newest]
Thanks to this song, Deadmau5 is my favourite D-Jay!

20Channel 42
This is a great song and, even though the higher ones are good, I find this amazing.
This sould be a lot higher this is some of his best work since it is catchy so keep on voting so this will be higher enough Said
I Find This Song Better Than Strobe And any other of his songs I know I will get a lot of hate because I don't like Strobe
[Newest]Needs more attention, the song rules

21Fn Pig
One of the best intros I've ever heard in a song in a long time. The song is paced so well, and the drop is awesome. Brilliant
This song has a really cool beat! The first part tells you "get ready". Once it finally comes you are listening to a really sick beat! Listen and wait!
Amazing build up, which at first is ambient but after 2 minutes of the tempo going up and down, sometimes gradually, sometimes suddenly, the song becomes something different entirely. A chiptune melody plays for some time, which builds up into one of the coolest deadmau5 drops to date. All I can say is that you must listen to this.
[Newest]This is a perfect mix of beauty and hard beats. I personally think that this song deserves better.

22A City In Florida
WHAT?!?! WHY IS IT DOWN HERE?!?! THIS SONG IS SICK I LOVE IT AND I HEAR IT EVERYDAY! IT DESERVES TO BE NUMBER ONE PEOPLE!
How is this not number 1? I've listened to 3 of Deadmau5's albums, and I have to say, this is my absolute favorite song. Listening to it on a great speaker system also enhances the quality, too.
This song is great! I love how the base makes the whole room vibrate! This song is the reason deadmau5 is one if ohe greatest producers of all time! And it deffinently deserves the number one spot.

23Alone With You
Takes you on a magical journey from high to high. No matter how bad things are, this tune brings back hope.
Oh my god, words cannot describe the feeling I from the song. The quintessence of euphoria rushes into every molecule of my being as I crest the 16, 000 total plays mark. I haven't purchased a song in years, and even after having every version of the song in it's highest quality, I felt for the first time it was duty to give an artist my money.

Thank you you glorious angel Joel Thomas Zimmerman.
I once listened to Brazil-Alone with You, back-to-back, while running. I think by the time that I was halfway sick of the songs, I had already put in well over 10 miles.

24Jaded
Simplicity is the name of the game here, and Deadmau5 delivers with a beautiful track. If you haven't heard this track, do yourself a favor and listen! It builds on the same progression throughout, adding subtle elements to the timbre of the synths and to the beat. Add in a perfect breakdown and you've got a top 10 track!
The intro is a pure masterclass of electronic music composing

25Hi Friend
What is this song doing this down?
Just awesome... I like Mc Flip's contrubution, but the song would still be perfect as an instrumental

26Clockwork
Absolutely amazing! Seems like its always rising.

27Arcadia
This song will be in the top ten soon! I hope that.
ONE of the best song by deadmau5 it should be in the first 5 according to me.

28Orca
This is top 10 quality. It is one of my staple deadmau5 songs just like strobe, faxing Berlin, brazil, and arguru. If you haven't heard it and like the songs I mentioned, I highly suggest it!
Awesome song! Unbelieavably heavy drop!

29Avaritia
One of the best deadmau5 tracks out their. Not quite #1 but its still up there.
This song gives me the chills. The best synth in trance music ever.
Definitely the best song from While 1 <2

308bit
8bit was one of deadmau5's first songs released, and definitely deserves a spot in the top 3

amoepixl

This thing is called love on first sight! Its amazing! This is definitely one of the mau5's best songs and one of tjhe best songs I have ever seen

31My Pet Coelacanth
This song has a very good build up and break definitely deserves in top 10
This song marks the beginning of his newest masterpieces that will be released in due time. Wait and watch. But first, listen to this song!
It's so... 'Get off your couch and start dancing' type!
Love it!
Just like the best
[newest]
From his new album and I gotta say is one of his all time best! Great for ragers

32October
This song reminds me of strobe. I guess you could call it strobe 2. I love it, both the melody and the build up. My favorite song from the new deadmau5 album.
Masterpiece! For sure one of his best songs! The breakdowns are unbelieveable good!

33FML
True progressive House indeed! One of the best...
How is FML not even in part 1?! It belongs in the top five!
How is FML not in the top ten?!

34Porcelain
A deadmau5 classic. The chords in this song are well placed and it sounds beautiful.

35The 16th Hour
Great floor stomper, dark and mysterious. Takes me right back to the underground techno scene of the 90's, with an even deeper edge.
This song has such a mysterious and pumpong up beat! How can this not be in at least top 20? People are really weird...

36Bad Selection
Come on number 33 put it number 8

me3p0


37Maths
Complex and hard hitting, beats Ghosts N Stuff anytime. Lovely glitchy sound to it, with great build up, breaks and drops!
Great song named after something I hate
M very high on dis 1

38A Moment to Myself
Amazing album rework. Sounds so beautiful! The album screwed up songs like Creep and Bleed, But this Album edit was better than the soundcloud version. With the album edit, it may have surpassed legends like Aural Psynapse ( My past favorite) and Strobe ( Second behind AU PS). Just so amazing... makes you think of the future for some reason, but it is gorgeous.

39Phantoms Can't Hang
I really like this song. Such a pure progressive house build up

40Closer
If you've ever watched Close Encounters of the third kind, you can relate to this song. The beats and synth are awesome.
Is a close encounters of the music

41Gula

42Creep
This song deserves a listen. So melancholy and powerful, it has to be one of his deepest songs.

43Waking Up From the American Dream
Amazing song, love the piano beat drop! This song always gets me in a really good mood, definitely a contender for Strobe's crown.

44Finished Symphony
Why this song wasn't in this list?! It's so amazing, I like it a lot.. It makes me fly high..
Oh wow this sould be at least 5th cause it has a good beat to it so you sould listen to it cause its awesome

45Move for Me
Perfect pacing, unique melody and great production make this a classic.

46Soma
The piano part in this song is the most melancholy depressing thing you will ever hear. and its awesome
True to the name it really does make you feel like you're on a drug.

47Infra Turbo Pigcart Racer
Best song off of deadmau5's last album

48Secondary Complications

49Complications
As a person who loves dark music, this song is just right. About halfway into the song, things start to get very dark and aggressive. I love it!
The simple drumbeat in he 2nd half makes me headbang just as hard as any upbeat deadmau5 song... Boring if you don't like simplistic, killer if you do.
This deserves to be higher, in my opinion
Classic Deadmau5

50Pets
This is beautiful! I was listening to this when I was chatting with my girlfriend on New Years celebration... ! (ik you don't care but anyway)
Easily Deadmau5's best track on While (1<2)!

51Suckfest 9001
UNREAL new track. Love the duality of hard hitting and super chill. But where is MY PET COELACANTH?! That is his best new song by far. Suckfest comes second.
SICK new track! Great admixture of beats and moods. There's a weird resilience in the moody part and it totally works for me.
Amazing song, its definitely one of his finest pieces. Give it a listen, won't regret it!

52One Trick Pony
This song is so raw and gets your blood flowing with the bass drops. The way the song just all comes together is hands down one of my favorite Deadmau5 songs. I understand it's probably not as popular due to the vocals but damn with that beat it's tough to do any better.
Don't see how this isn't even up there! The bass is simply amazing and the vocals are spectacular!

53777
This is a "Mau5terpiece", This track is one of the best song of deadmau5 with Strobe, This will be the Second best song of deadmau5.
Simply put, It needs to be longer, Top 5 at least.
A journey in Joels minds, puts different emotions in a song. At the level of strobe

54Where My Keys
Wait for 30 seconds and then go nuts! This song is insane!

55Where Is Here
Perfection. That is all.

56Brazil (1st Edition)

57You and I
Definitely one of my favorites, it should be up in the top 10.
My favourite deadmau5 track, definitely his best remix
Deadmau5's remix of the song by Medina, so good. YouTube IT. NAO.

58Cocktail Queen
This one is very underrated. Sexy voice, powerful drop, and amazing sound.

PositronWildhawk


59The Reward Is Cheese
This song is in my opinion, one of deadmau5's finest. I think the buildup is amazing.
Such a deep and dirty track. Sounds awesome in nightclubs

60Slip
Way too far down the list. This song has a great mysterious tense touch and the progression and the breakdowns sound legendary!

61Everything Before

62Seeya
Awesome with the funky bass! LOVE IT!
When the new album goes out this'll be first place

63Can't Remember the Name

64I'm Not Alone
One of my favorite songs overall (not just Deadmau5). The way the "instrumentality" (new word? ) fits with the vocals is stunning when you think about it closely.

65Cyclic Redundancy
I love this track. Especially the synths. It's so atmospheric.
Awesome track by the Mau5.
I love the downtempo feeling of this song.

66I Said
How is this so low down? Just shows how much good stuff Deadmau5 has produced. Makes me feel like I'm on another planet.
One of the most monotonal and complete soud that I've hear! I love Deadmau5

67Play Us Out

68The Oshawa Connection

69Stereo Fidelity

70Hello Sugar

71Cthulhu Dreams
Wow, I'm surprised this song isn't higher on the list because it starts out with a beautiful intro and then scares the living carp out of you with an extremely dreadful beat drop. Definitely deserves top 50.
Epic unreleased song with a touch of dubstep. Personally I think that this version of Cthulhu sleeps should have been on 4X4=12. Cthulhu Sleeps was far too long but this is just right.

72Mercedes

7371c

74Subliminal

75So There I Was

76Dr. Funkenstein

77The Longest Road

78Contact
One of the hands down best trance song by
Deadmau5

79Aural Psynapse (Second Edit)
I think a lot of people are voting for Aural Psynapse when they mean to vote for Aural Psynapse second edit, since on the top ten electronic songs (artists varied), this one is placed at #3.
I just listened to it, and I don't see a difference between it and the original.

80We Fail
On a good sound system, WE FAIL is hard to beat!

81Full Bloom

82Lai

83All I Had
The melody. Oh My. This song is so beautifully sad.

84Drop the Poptart
Should appear on While (1<2). One of the best Mau5 songs I've heard. Just spectacular.

85Afterhours

86Seeya Next Tuesday

87Long Walk Off a Short Pier
