Best Goo Goo Dolls Songs


The Top TenXW


the best ever! and can anyone else in this world reach the top quality of the song?! I doubt it! the best part is "when every things' meant to be broken... I just want you to know who I am"!

Such a beautiful song, I have it on my blog! :) "I don't want the world to see me, 'cause I don't think that they'd understand, when everything's mean to be broken, I just want you to know who I am" Beautiful.

Brilliant! Without a doubt one of the best songs ever made, so much feeling crammed in!

This song is brilliant in every way - Ajkloth

A great composition where the 'feel' of the song matches the delivery of insightful lyrics - taking the listener to a reflective place where they can just think about anything and appreciate what is important to them

Amazing guitar riff and some of the best lyrics I have ever heard in a song! Truly an underrated masterpeice. "scars are souveneers you never loose, the past is never far... " - dragon13304

Even though Iris was what brought me to The Goo Goo Dolls, I think this song took over as my #1! - cmrnpref

Love this song. I agree that the lyrics make a lot of sense in relation to the tone of the song.

3Black Balloon

The Most Amazing song I have have heard! I lay in the backyard and star at the stars while listening to this. Such a mezmerizing voice that just makes you happy. I'm glad they changed from their roots.

This song has been with me always and iris is definitely #uno but black balloons must be 2nd or I don't know. I really love this song


Every time I hear this song, I don't know how but I just feel good.I mean, how could you not like a song that starts with "could you whisper in my ear, the things you wanna feel...I'll give you anything".Goo Goo Dolls is one the best underrated bands of all time. A "slide" is one of their masterpieces.

Not as well known as Iris but its still a great song. Far more bright and upbeat with a fairly catchy chorus.

This is such a good song. It came out a couple months after I was born. The chorus is upbeat. The line I wanna wake up where you are is one of the best lines.

I wanna wake up where you are, I won't say anything at all... Makes me cry every time

5Here Is Gone

this song is way better than slide in my opinion... simply great!
Great chorus and lyrics, not as good as Iris but it should be at number 2 at least.

This song liberates me every time I hear it. Some how I feel invisible, I feel free. This song is my inspiration for life. For this song I live to plan every adventure I set my self to do. For no one can ever hold me back. This song has to be the best.

Hands down my favourite song. Beautiful lyrics and it just feels right.

Big machine should be in the top 10

6Better Days

Almost all of us have lived through that horrible year. The year we look back at and wonder how we even survived. I know I wonder the same about 2011 almost everyday.
"And you asked me what I want this year,
And I try to make this kind and clear.
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days,
'cause I don't need boxes wrapped in strings.
And designer love and empty things,
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days. "
It makes you hopeful, because there's always going to be a tomorrow that's better than today. It may not be today's tomorrow, but there will be tomorrow. And it's a message for all of us. Beautiful song.

7Long Way Down

Really good vocals for a rock song and altogether sounds very clean. It is by far my favorite song by them.

Classic goo goo dolls 90's alternative rock, much better than the new slow albums that are essentially alternative rock ballads.

Best song they ever did!

8We Are the Normal

Very underrated song by goo goo dolls! It has a amazing vocals lyrics and the violin added in just makes it better! "We are the normal, we live and we die with no reason why" - dragon13304

Such a classic goo goo dolls sound.

9All That You Are

Heard it in Transformers 3. Loving it since then. Amazing lyrics. Deserves to be higher on the list.

The feel of this song is amazing... Just can't get enough of it
Yeah, all the things that you are,
Beautifully broken, alive in my heart,
And know that you are everything,
Let your heart sing and tonight, we light up the stars,

Should be higher on the list, I personally think. Transformers 3 may have been a misstep, but it had a good soundtrack.
1. Iris
2. All That You Are
3. I'm Awake Now - BKAllmighty


One of the best songs ever! Why soy low in the list, before I came to this site I think that sympathy would be 2#

It deserves to be much higher in the list. A really beautiful song!

One of their best songs, love it!

15I'm Still Here

"I'M STIILL HERE" is Better Than "IRIS", this should be number 1... It is also used in the movie "Treasure Planet".. Really Awesome Song With Awesome Lyrics and Guitar Playing.. And I searched the top ten best song list of GOO GOO DOLLS just because of this song... I'm not saying put this on top.. But if you really like Goo goo Dolls Just Listen this song.. Iris disappointed me

Thank you guys, really I listened I'm Still Here after seeing your comment, and yeah truly masterpiece song, I'm lovin it, and "IRIS" is also one of the best song of goo goo dolls but I'm still here is really great, goo goo dolls written such a meaningful lyrics with great music.. I'm listening it right now while commenting, ♫ it is now top of my playlist and I keeps on listening it. Ten time continuously :)

The Goo Goo dolls are true writers of music. They know to "connect" with the emotions of people including me. The lyrics are amazing, "Wanna touch things I don't feel,
Wanna hold on and feel I belong.
And how can the world want me to change,
They’re the ones that stay the same.
The don’t know me,
'Cause I’m not here.

These lyrics blow my mind! Love the goo goo dolls

Should be number 1. So much feels in this.

16Before It's Too Late

Before its too late. Its not a song you can't get out of your head But this sure is a song one should not miss! For me this is the second best after Iris! Don't miss this if you love Goo goo Dolls.

Oh my god...! This song is what I've searching for. The lyrics is so deep. Bring me back to the past..!

A song of true compassion!

17Somethin' Bad

This song deserves much more. Very nice ballad

19Acoustic #3

Best song EVER! Even though it's short it has a good story and for some reason I relate to it.
