The Top Ten

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
[Newest]Strobe makes you feel as if you are the center of the earth as a human being. You will imagine seeing a sun rise and sunset as you listen to his ultimate masterpiece. The air of mystery in the song is always there. It is deadmau5's top 1 for a very good reason.

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]It definitely brings back the strength in me whenever I listen to this

3I 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..
There's always that ONE song from a given artist that acts as the hook that makes you a fan. Numb by Linkin Park, Blow Me Away by Breaking Benjamin, Voodoo Child by Jimi Hendrix, Cosmic Love by Florence + The Machine, just to name a few. Never has a song so firmly hooked my attention and turned me into an instantaneous fan of an artist like I Remember did of deadmau5. Never has any piece of music caused me to experience such a sense of dream like nostalgia in such a beautiful way and for seemingly no reason. I love this song to such a degree that I actually try to avoid playing it very often so as not to burn myself out on it. If you're feeling sad or depressed, this song can, if you allow it, put you into a state of emotional neutrality and clarity.
[Newest]... it is possibly the best Deadmau5 song to date! It makes me feel euphoric every time I listen to it. Everything about the song us so catchy and if you listen to it, you are likely to be tapping your foot along to the beat.

4Aural 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]This song doesn't need any explanation. It's just perfect, pure emotion. When I listen this masterpiece I feel something indescribable, heart beating, barely breathing. To me, this is perfection

5Raise 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

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]Drift away and float

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]It has such a good beat. I always dance to this when I get board. if you are on a road trip I suggest listening to this

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]GERARD WAY IS THE BEST VOCALIST EVER AND DEADMAU5 IS THE BEST TECHNO BAND EVER so this works out pretty well and sounds awesome. I loved My Chemical Romance and when they broke up is was excited to here this song. "Give me a sound to see another world outside that's full of all the broken things that I've made"

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]Pure trance... pure awesomeness

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]One of the best, musical and rhythmic from the beginning and doesn't stop at any point

The Contenders

11HR 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]This might just be better than Strobe. Deserves to be in the top 5 at least.

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?
This is probably the most emotional song ever written by deadmau5. "Bleed" will move you into tears, and might change you in ways you cannot imagine. deadmau5 wrote this song for a fan who has died in a car accident shortly after attending one of his concerts. He poured everything into this song. I have cried listening to this. This masterpiece is very dark, but there is just this one spark of hopefulness that makes this song beautiful and powerful enough to rival Strobe.
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.
[Newest]There is something about this music that made me sit back and embrace this feeling of numbness inside. It is as if the song welcomed me with its arms to comfort me with my daily problems.

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]This song is sick

14Faxing 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.
[Newest]The runner up that comes after strobe and no other track can take its place!

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!

16There Might Be Coffee
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.
There's something about the way this track begins that really sets me into such a great mood. I just love this track.
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]This song and faxing Berlin should be at the top of the list

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.

18Not 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!
This is the song that turned me onto Deadmau5. I then picked up a copy of Random Album Title in the Louvre...says it all really!
[Newest]This is dope! This song just gets me into trance and I forget everything

19Cthulhu 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!

20Channel 42
This is a great song and, even though the higher ones are good, I find this amazing.
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
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
[Newest]This track is the best track of deadmau5..

21Alone With You
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.
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.
[Newest]Come on! This should be in top 5

22Fn 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]One of my favorite mau5 tracks

23A City In Florida
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 this song is $&@! Amazing! I've listened to all the top ten and this one is by far my favorite. Most songs are to slow for M. This song has a faster beat and a great song. Can't believe this song is so far down!
[Newest]This should be number one!

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

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


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

Absolutely amazing! Seems like its always rising.

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?!

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

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.

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!

32My Pet Coelacanth
This song has a very good build up and break definitely deserves in top 10
Just like the best
Real mau5 fans know how good this track is, and that it was an instant classic the second he dropped in at UMF 2014.

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

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!

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

36Phantoms Can't Hang
I really like this song. Such a pure progressive house build up

37Bad Selection
Come on number 33 put it number 8


38The 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...

39The Oshawa Connection

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


42A 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.

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

44Finished Symphony
Why this song wasn't in this list?! It's so amazing, I like it a lot.. It makes me fly high..
Progressive Deadmau5 at his best. Should be much higher along with arguru. It's a remix of Hybrid's original check that out too
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

45Waking 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.

46One 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.
Should be in top 10! With the huge dirty wobble bass, deep kicking drum beat, and amazing vocals, this song is one of his best
Don't see how this isn't even up there! The bass is simply amazing and the vocals are spectacular!

47Move for Me
Perfect pacing, unique melody and great production make this a classic.

48You 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.


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.

51Infra Turbo Pigcart Racer
Best song off of deadmau5's last album

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)!

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

54Secondary Complications

55Suckfest 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!

56Dirty Sexy Club Music

I AM SHOCKED! This song is way better than strobe and it deserves to be in the top 10! Listen to it right now and let's make it shoot up!
Easily deserves top 5. If you haven't heard this song then go and do it right now. You won't regret it.
Awesome with the funky bass! LOVE IT!

58Where My Keys
Wait for 30 seconds and then go nuts! This song is insane!

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

60Where Is Here
Perfection. That is all.

61Brazil (1st Edition)

62Vanishing Point
Common this has got to be in top 25 at least... The tune is classy... Its awesome.. The intro and exit.. Perfect... The beats... Epic
This song is awesome, enough said

63Cocktail Queen
This one is very underrated. Sexy voice, powerful drop, and amazing sound.


64The Longest Road

Way too far down the list. This song has a great mysterious tense touch and the progression and the breakdowns sound legendary!
Very good song and must be higher than its rank right now.

66The 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

67I'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.

68Some Kind of Blue

69Everything Before

70Cyclic 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.

Definitely the masterpiece of chords progression.

72Can't Remember the Name

73I 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

74Play Us Out

75Hello Sugar


77Drop the Poptart
The vocals kinda ruin it, in my opinion it would be better without the vocals but great song otherwise.
Should appear on While (1<2). One of the best Mau5 songs I've heard. Just spectacular.

78Stereo Fidelity

79Cthulhu 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.


81So There I Was
Extremely underrated. Goes through a very natural and smooth melodic progression, one of my all time favorites

82Dr. Funkenstein

One of the hands down best trance song by

84Aural 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.

85We Fail
On a good sound system, WE FAIL is hard to beat!

86Full Bloom



89All I Had
The melody. Oh My. This song is so beautifully sad.


91Seeya Next Tuesday

92Long Walk Off a Short Pier
This is a really catchy song. It is an older one but one of his best.

9315 Minutes
Best song in project 56
