Best Death Cab for Cutie Songs


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21A Movie Script Ending

This song captures some form of lost nostalgia... Maybe longing for something that isn't there? It's sad but really happy at the same time. Damn it

22Codes and Keys
23Expo '86

This song is awesome! It would definitely be in my top 10.

24No Joy In Mudville
25We Laugh Indoors
26Black Sun

So simple. So brilliant.

27The Ghosts of Beverly Drive

First Death Cab song I ever heard, so maybe I have a personal attachment to it. I think this song is very pretty and unique (though I do think most Death Cab songs are unique).

How is this song at no 30? I voted for this because this song deserves to be in at least top five. Listen to the song and you will know.

30Your New Twin Sized Bed

This song will always be my favorite, No matter how many times I listen to it, the same two thoughts race in my head. Oh my gosh I love this song, and When will this song end so I can listen to it again!

31Passenger Seat

Such a shame for this beautiful song to be so low on the list. Makes me teary every time

32Pictures In an Exhibition
33Bixby Canyon Bridge

Brilliant song! It really conveys the raw emotions of confusion, anger, and sorrow as it plays out. One of my favorite lyrics of all time is "When everyone you meet, they all seem to be asleep." The power with which that line is sung combined with the constant guitar beat gets me every time! Totally deserves Top 10 at THE LEAST.

I cannot believe this song didn't make it even to the extended list! A beautiful song, with typical DCFC highs-and-lows, with the lyrics painting a picture open to each one's interpretation. Beautiful!

34Long Division
35Monday Morning

One of the catchiest song I've ever heard from them! It was playing all the time in my mind the first time I listened to it. The lyrics are cute too, love to think it's about growing old with zooey deschanel

I'm surprised no one has added this song much higher up in the list! It's amazing!

36Meet Me On the Equinox
37The New Year
38The Ice Is Getting Thinner

The song is so sweet. Its so nice and soothing.

Heard it on gossip girl! Love this song

39All Is Full of Love
40Home Is a Fire

This song has wonderful lyrics, anyone can relate to it. And I find the whole idea that everything is constantly changing to be an incredible, unique, indescribable thought/feeling. It's strong. And this song does an excellent job of mixing a couple emotions to really perfectly express the feeling of being in constant change, never having a single home that'll last forever. Its upbeat temp/rhythm sets the tempo at which life hits you. The way song sounds kinda happy, and transitions into a more eerie chord progression. And the chorus goes through a series of feelings, the way any life would go. This song is powerful and it is one of the best I've ever heard.
