The Top TenXW

1Some Nights

This song is do cool... You guys must listen to this song and vote for it Fun. For the win

We Are Young is only first, because it's popular, but Some Nights is probably one of the best songs of 2011

I heard this song in Hollister in late 2011 and immediately loved it. The beginning sent chills up my spine the first time I heard it. It is truly song a unique song and has really incredible lyrics the whole way through, especially when he talks about his nephew. This has been my favorite song for 7 months straight. Nits amazing!

Great inspirational song.

2We Are Young


I love the first two lines:
"Wait a second there, I need to get my story straight...
My friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the Empire State. "
And the singer isn't THAT ugly...

Amazing song. I'll never get tired of screaming the chorus out of tune at the top of my voice every chance I get. My friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the empire state. :')

Best Chorus from Nate Ruess!

5Why Am I the One

I love this song. Was about to change the station on the radio and was arrested by the song with my hand hovering in the air. One word, wow! I love the group and this song best.

If people actually listened to all of fun. 's music and not just the songs that come up on the radio they'd realize this is easily their best son

I don't think that it's the best fun. Song, but it definitely deserves the top ten! Love the acoustics

1 of my best song

6Walking the Dog

Love this song. It's so catchy! The music video is amazing as well. It inspired me to try some of my own music video-covering.

I wish "I Wanna Be The One" could have made it on this list. - tanakaseiron

7Be Calm

Be calm.
I know you feel like you are breaking down.
I know that it gets so hard sometimes,
Be calm.
Take it from me, I've been there a thousand times.
You hate your pulse because it thinks you're still alive
And everything's wrong
It just gets so hard sometimes
Be calm.

These lyrics are powerful and speak volumes. Amazing Song with Great LYrics

This song is amazing! It should be ranked second and Carry On should be ranked first. I love Fun., they are really good and I made my shoes to look almost like the ones he wore in the music video for Carry On they look so cool. And to all those people whom change the words when they sing any of his songs that isn't right you have no reason to change what he wrote even if he says a bad word it is still his song you shouldn't change it.

Fun's best song. The melody, the lyrics, his voice. Everything is perfect. Everyone says that they are like the Queen but I think they are only the Fun, an original and amazing pop band. We love you.

One Word for this song: "Fun"

8The Gambler

Maybe not the most catchy, but certainly one of the most well written of all their songs.

Honestly their best song. It is beautiful and has a deeper meaning that it appears. Some Nights was my favourite until I heard this

I agree that this song should get more attention that it does. Beautiful song- well written and really heartfelt. This song came on without me really paying attention to the lyrics, but when I did... Wow

Such a beautiful, touching, and personal song. Quite frankly, a masterpiece. I've never heard anything else like it.

COME ON ONLY 9%!? This is one of the best songs ever made in the history of Fueled by Ramen maybe even in the world!

PANIC! AT THE DISCO! Need I say more? Two of the best bands ever, working together? This song is like Chirstmas came early, and Chirstmas comes every time I listen to this song!

This song is very catchy, how come it is not in the first place?

I'm listening to this now! I'm getting chills

10At Least I'm Not as Sad (As I Used to Be)

This song has every thing people like in a song catchy good meaningful lyrics good vocals amazing RHYTHM (don't hear much of that these days) and a big finally to see it at ten not were I would put it unless I saw take your time (coming home)

I really love fun.'s songs... They're crazy, wild, and FUN! :)) But, I love this song the best.

The Contenders

11All Alone

Why isn't this higher up? It is so good and has so much meaning. The only reason that it didn't higher is because the radio stations overplay the top songs!

Definitely doesn't have the attention it needs. Catchy and beautiful.

Most amazing song I have heard in a long time! Why wasn't it a hit?

Very underrated fun. Song. Definitely one of my favorites

12Take Your Time

If you look at the lyrics, this song is clearly one that the singer cares about. Great song too!

This song seriously grows on you, one of my favorites off of "Aim and Ignite"

This song is long, but the feel of a garage jam song makes me love it

This is a the best song ever

13Out On the Town

BEST SONG EVER! I bet I broke the replay button on my laptop

What is this doing at #23?! This is by far one of the best songs on Some Nights, if not the best. The production is amazing, and the fact it was only a bonus track is an appaling thing.

My friend said she didn't like fun. I played her this song.

My favorite track from Some Nights.

14Just Give Me a Reason

Wonderful song, honestly in should be in the top 5. Just go and listen to it and it will definitely entrance you.

This song is a collaboration with the artists fun. And P! Nk. It is an extremely catchy song, and I think if anyone reads this, you should just listen to it. Once. It won't hurt, and if you don't like it just click away!

This is like the top five for me its number 3 after we are young and be calm this should really be up in the top five so if you haven't heard the song you should youll really like it! I Guarantee it!

Good song, I love this

15All Alright

Why is this song not number 1? Amazing melody and lyrics. My all time favourite fun. Song!

Song I can relate to one of my favorite songs by fun. Fun. Is my favorite band they r very talented.

16I Wanna Be the One

This is the best song ever made, this song ispired me a lot to create music of this style: Art Rock, Symphonic Rock. Simply the best of Fun. the 1st album is the best, hope Nate made more music like this, hope someday I can make music like this and have a song as wonderful as "I Wanna Be the One" and "at Least I'm Not As Sad (As I Used to Be)" this is real art, what what the art is made of, I can't expresss my feelings very well about this, but this passionates me so much

17Sight of the Sun

This song is awesome, just the greatest. I listen to it always, my ipod is always on repeat so I can always listen to this... Basically.. This is one of the best songs ever...

Very refreshing to hear some new content from them. I love this because it's really serious and dramatic but at the same time I can't help but dance to it

Definitely deserves a higher position in the list! The tone of this song gives me the chills and the lyrics is simply mesmerizing!

Defiantly one of their best! Why is it not at the top?

19Some Nights (Intro)

This is one of the deepest narrations to ever be the intro of an album. Some artists, like Eminem, do a skit to introduce their album. Fun takes it to a new level and tells the behind-the-scenes of the tales told in all the Some Nights songs.

In my opinion the top five goes like THIS:
Some Nights (Intro)
Some Nights
Carry On
Why Am I The One
We Are Young
