The Top Ten

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 was suggested to me by a very good friend of mine. Later, I remember thanking him for introducing me to this song. I mean, the feel of this song, and the vocals has some secret element embedded in it.

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... "


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

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.

4Here 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.

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.
"Put your arms around me, what you feel is what you are and what you are is beautiful" <3 awesomeness! I love it! My fave goo goo dolls song! Amorr!

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.

7All 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

13I'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

25Long Way Down
Classic goo goo dolls 90's alternative rock, much better than the new slow albums that are essentially alternative rock ballads.
Really good vocals for a rock song and altogether sounds very clean. It is by far my favorite song by them.
Best song they ever did!

This song is amazing, can't believe it's not on the list! Behind Name, this is my favorite Goo song. The guitar sounds so amazing, and the lyrics make so much sense, and have so much meaning behind them. This is on of those songs that people always forget when listing great Goo songs!
