The Top Ten

1
Pumped Up Kicks
Great, catchy but also a very scary song! I mean have you heard the lyrics of it!? Its about a kid that goes on a killing spree in his school! But its still catchy.
The most popular song ever if it say anything else then that is because people are getting tried of hearing it all the time but it still the most popular song ever.
Possibly the song of 2011 in my opinion. It should be number 1 on this list, I think this song is much better than Houdini that is when they don't play it 100 times in a row on the radio.

2Houdini
This is the best song I've ever heard in Foster The People album! The climax part is "sometimes I wanna disappear" when the music gets kind of electro indie it's so great! This should be on top.. I think Pumped Up Kicks gets overrated even though the song is really catchy but it's better when Mark Foster sings it live
This song is far better than Pumped up Kicks. Pumped Up Kicks has a nice tune, but it's pretty much the same thing repeated over and over. This song has a completely different tune that somehow sounds good. And the best part is that you can't tell whatever the hell they're saying.
Amazing song! Absolutly love it

3Helena Beat
Beautiful song and lyrics and badass intro, should be on first, and just behind, Houdini on second and on third Call it what you want! :D
Only video made in the past 10 years that I know of (which isn't saying much) that's worth watching.

Also far darker and textured than PuK.
Music video and song itself is amazing

4Coming of Age
Love the video... I don't know why but the song lifts up my spirits
This song truly proves that after the success of "Torches" they can still make fantastic fresh stuff. Also this is a wonderful song with great melodies and lyrics.
What a wonderful way to introduce their new album. Can't get it out of my head... in a good way. :D
[newest]
No, just no. I really like this song, but it should be at the bottom.

5Call It What You Want
Should be third behind Pumped UP Kicks and Houdini!
It should be higher... This song is catchy.. Ya'll better check this song out...
This should be higher. It's such a great song. I don't even know how waste made the list

6Broken Jaw
Great intro, just love how in the middle of the song it becomes a completely different one, the building up to the chorus is just pure ecstasy and the last third of the song is absolutely "orgasmic" till the end of it, feels to me underrated.
This is the best song in "Torches" and I guess that is why is so mysterious. Fantastic catchy lyrics. Perfect continuation and includes the best metamorphosis that I have ever heard in a song.
The verses are the best part, especially when it builds up to the chorus.

7Best Friend
This song is fantastic. I mean, how many songs are there about helping your best friend with a drug addiction. Also, there aren't nearly enough songs off of Supermodel here.
I'd put it at number six, but I guess I can't really diss this list for that, can I?
This song is so different but it can still relate to every other song.

8Don't Stop (Color On the Walls)
Sorry but in my opinion, this song is id say three times better than pumped up kicks.

queen11

Should definitely be in the top three.
Great chorus! The way the verse builds up into the song's climax is just amazing

9The Truth
This is the best song of all new disc, this have the essential of the two albums. This is now my favorite song of foster the people, the second one is Helena Beat.
This song is the continue of Waste of the new album, the chorus and final make this a powerful song.
This should be in the top 5. Just saying.

10Ruby
Without a doubt the best song in the entire album and possibly their best work ever
Its one of their best works. the song has a lot of soul.

The Contenders

11Pseudologia Fantastica
Has that great feeling to it. It's just something I can listen to over and over again.
How is this not number one one the list?! I love most of Foster the People's songs, but Pseudolgia Fantastica is by far my favourite. It doesn't necessarily blow the others out of the water, but I think it's still the best one.
We should try and get this one to the top. Love it.

12I Would Do Anything for You
It is absolutely amazing. It has a really fun beat, pretty catchy, and makes you want to dance to it. One of the best.
This is the best song of foster the people, should definitely be in the top 1.
My all time favorite song

13Waste
Really great song. It's got a great beat, but so does all their other songs. The beat never fails. What really distinguishes this song is the amazing chorus. Really the best word to describe it is: epic. The churches bells, everyone singing, the sweet ambience. It all makes me ecstatic
It's such a touching song, the beat is amazing and fits the song's subject perfectly. The church bells make the song sound almost melancholy, though, seriously the best thing about the song. Better than everything on Supermodel except maybe Pseudologica Fantastica, and second only to Helena Beat on Torches.
Best song in colombia

14A Beginner's Guide to Destroying the Moon
Oh god, where do I start... The message, the beautiful sound that you can simply drown in, the seranade of his voice in the bridge... You will never be whole until you lose control. I personally feel it means just let yourself go and experience the sorrows and joy of the world and let it take you down and bring you up all the same. I love it.
This is one of the best songs in Supermodel. This song has such a gloomy but yet dynamic atmosphere. The Song has to be in the top 10's. Foster the people really know how to do a great song.
Such a cool song. even though I've only heard a live version, I know it will be one of the best songs on supermodel

15Fire Escape
Although it may not seem like Foster the People's style, this song tells a story. It's somewhat emotional, but every band needs to write a song like this, anyways. The synthesizer is mixed in with the guitar in an interesting way, which adds to the atmosphere of the song. However, it's beautiful and deserves applause.
This is a great song, but fifteenth is around the right place for it

16Ask Yourself
Should be 11 at least!

17Miss You
I don't really get this song. This is the only Foster the People song (excluding The Angelic Welcome of Mr. Jones, but that's 33 seconds long, so it's obviouslly not going to be anyone's favourite) that I don't really like
Looks like a fusion of a new soul with a megaman x stage theme :P

18Chin Music for the Unsuspecting Hero
Perfect! You feel this song... Awesome lyrics and music
I love it it's on every playlist of mine!

19Love
Even though it isn't a single, this is the song I most liked. Pumped Up Kicks was the first I heard, but this attracted more than it.

20Life On the Nickel
Totally underrated, I mean come on! Does no one like this song?
Should be at least seventh.
Are you kidding me? This song should be in the top 5!
What a song. Well done.

23Tabloid Super Junkie

24The Angelic Welcome of Mr. Jones
Seriously? This should be at the bottom!

25Are You What You Want to Be?
Seriously the heck? This should be number 2... This is like the best song ever!? Come on people!
Has the best song intro and backed up by brilliant lyrics
Why so low? What

26Warrant
Long intro, but totally worth it, best best beat by far

Packerjack97

I would put it in the top ten, but I can see why other people wouldn't agree. I mean, it's not quite their best song, but still top 10 worthy
The intro will give you goosebumps. Trust me.

27Nevermind
How can this song not be in the top 5?!?!?!
Such a beautiful, slighty gloomy song. <3 Its truly one of their best
