The Top TenXW

1Feel Good Inc.

This song has a lovely flow. Something about this just makes me feel like I'm on a roll, its got a brilliant flow and being a gorillaz fan, I just couldn't have asked for anything better. Plus the rap in between is so smooth.

For this classic smooth music lovers, this is like a 21st cent pimp to those songs, however possible, maintaining the peculiar flow of those songs!

Just brilliant...!
The song just hits a new level of music... You will get completely immersed in the song & can go on listening to it for ever & ever

Because this song has humor, a certain hard to find philosophy and a really great beat, lyrics and tone. If anything this song is the best for it's amazing windmill part, up until then, the song starts off with a slow flawless introduction. 10/10 all the way!

Thank you for this song... Because this can help to me

I now listen to gorillaz because of this song...

Gives off a euphoric feel. So nice and relaxing. Plus props for the originality about it and the overall catchy tune which will keep you replaying this song!

I listen to this song to make me fall asleep. Excellent melody - very catchy. The lyrics are also deep. No one can not like this song.

The main reason I listen to Gorillaz, such an awesome, catchy song.

I could listen to this song a hundred times over and never get tired of listening to this song! It's really catchy, jumpy, and has a lot of meaning, if you listen for long enough. 5 Stars!

This is the best gorillaz song EVER! Shaun Ryder does brilliant backing vocals in this song

Beautiful, electronic, sexy, and unique. It's nice that there's no rap in here, it just flows smoothly all the way through. The vocals are amazing, as are the instruments.

This song brings too many emotions out for me. First its just plain awesome sounding with the build up from Low guitars to Loud Keyboards and then a mix of both very angelic backing vocals. Second its very sad the way EMI did not fund the video and we were left with only a storyboard proposal of what might have been. The video represented Noodles Return and Murdocs redemption for being so mean to 2D. Third it all seems like the whole storyline was cut short for Plastic Beach and the continuing Gorillaz plot line.

Fav'song of plastic beach

7Tomorrow Comes Today

This is possibly one of the most underrated songs to ever be released by any artist. Though the meaning of the lyrics are a debatable mystery, with suggestions ranging from suicide to joy, this song is a slow, dub-influence piece of art with a strong sense of deprive, without having an empty sounding sound. The bass is heavy, the lyrics are good, the instrumental is brilliant and on top of that this is their first single.

Such a cool song! Good bass and I love the seriousness of the video.

This is one of the most mellow songs I've ever heard. Ever. It's so catchy and wonderful. One of the few songs I wanna listen to again and again.

Bets song with meaningful lyrics, good melancholy feel and a sick harmonica tune

Amazing! It's a very mental song and also very interesting. If you want to understand and feel this son, you just have to be quiet and listen carefully

these song totally rocks the mood its the awesome song I ever listen

You can definitely feel the influence of Feel Good Inc. on this track, what with it's melancholy tone and deep bass. By far the best of Plastic Beach!

That's all I have to say

One of the most creative songs in existence. "caught gorillaz in a happy mood" this song is part of why the first album is such a masterpiece that stands on it's own in terms of musical genre, song by song, but also has a cohesive sound as an album with it's hip hop beats and bass lines that never seem like they've been done before but still sound familier.

Its awesome, cool music, cool video, and the song is so fun to listen. Brilliant, awesome, n a song worthy to be no. one. I rate this song a full ten on ten. Great song.. !

BEST GORILLAZ song ever

This song is the best song in electric song ever

Who does not like this song it's good

BEST Song EVER YEAH. It's good, and awesome, why would someone not like this.

The soul child remix is amazing

10El Manana

This song almost made me cry. I learned it on the piano first chance I got. Noodle rocks as always, and I wanted to kill those helicopters for messing up the floating island. Haha

Its like a continuation of Feel Good Inc. In terms of meanings. There is so much prosaic meaning to these two songs. So sad and inspiring...

This song makes me cry and when I saw the video I knew how scared noodle was. I had pictured my self as her, when the windmill went down I had the urge to scream and yell :(.

By the way it's called El MaƱana

The Contenders

11Kids With Guns

The electronic progression in this song is amazing. It starts out simple and builds into a fantastic fusion of vocals and sound. I love most all of Gorillaz' songs, but I can't stop coming back to this one in particular. It's truly genius, not to mention the underlying meaning behind the lyrics that we're destroying the world for future generations. Albarn has created such an undeniably awesome track that it's easy to forget the ominous message.

Starts out rough and simple, but progressively becomes complicated, smooth and ominous. The darkness in this song is undeniable. I have listened to every single Gorillaz song, but I find myself coming back to it again and again. Definitely deserves a spot on the list.

This song is amazing it makes me feel god mode.

The drums in the last 40-50 seconds of this song is perfect

This song is like all of life condensed into one seething ocean of light.

Easily their best song and their most interesting. 4 minutes of pure beauty
The change half way through the song just makes it incredibly good

Hard to choose a best song but this is the one that does it for me. It's beautiful, gorgeous and lush, a simple melody that bursts into dreamy, uplifting, sonic heaven.

A lovely low-key start, and then it explodes into a wall of sound so perfectly beautiful it makes my heart flip.

Such a sick song. Definitely my favorite Gorillaz song out there and I've been listening to them since they first were. Original song with a groovy and catchy guitar part. This song really shows who the Gorillaz really are.

Awesome bass...Old school Gorillaz.

This should be #1, not #21... It is the top of my "Most Played" list. The guitar and timing of the bass drum for emphasis is beautiful. Vocals are very mystical.

54 has the Best guitar riff

Couldn't pick a better 3 collaborators in one song, blew me away first time I heard it and has to be the best Gorillaz song and by far my favorite song of 2012. (I mean the 13 minute version! ).

Do ya thing is a combination of, good rap, great vocals and amazing beat.5 on 5.

If we count this as a Gorillaz Song then it's one of the best.

Gorillaz are awesome and Andre 3000 killed it

15Some Kind of Nature

lou reed is just an amazing singer and in combination with gorillaz it's just perfect. the song is groovy, has a great beat and is just my favorite song. I'm just wondering why they sing "some kind of plastic to wrap around you"?

Probably my favourite song ever. Don't know why, just is. It one of the few songs that actually gets better as you listen to it again and again.

Soft vocals of Damn Albarn and Lou Reed just work magically! One of the most splendid listens!

This is my personal favorite

What?! Why is it here? It should be higher in the ranking. One of my favourite Gorillaz songs!

One of the best songs by Gorillaz

17Superfast Jellyfish

I know, I'm biased. But here's my story:
The year was 2010 and I had never heard of Gorillaz, living under a rock and all. This comes on the radio while I'm playing GameCube with a few friends. It must have left an impression on me, because years later, someone mentions Super Bass by Nicki Minaj. This rings some bell in the decrepit void which I call a memory, and I hear in my head the echoing "superfast" just before 2D's vocals. This excavates the song and later that year, I Google what little lyrics I knew: "All hail King Neptune and his water breathers". This opens me up to the wonderful world of Gorillaz. Prior to the search, all I had seen of Gorillaz was the name as the second suggested result of multiple image searches for "gorilla" and some fanart seen a day or two before my discovery; which just so happened to also be the day of one of the gorilla searches. I had heard someone sing the line "sunshine in a bag" but made no connection.
So there you have it. The seeds were sown at the song's release and harvested years later after conditioning to know of the existence of a musical group known as Gorillaz. I feel that if not for this song, I would have been deprived of, in my opinion, one of the best musical groups, fictional or otherwise, ever.

The beat and the hidden meaning in the song are amazing. I love that they use breakfast as a metaphor for the music industry.

I love this song! My Third Favorite. It's Catchy and Cool. This song is really fun and great to listen to to cheer you up. I could listen to it 10 times in a row and not get tired of it.

It's just so catchy! - NoodleRidley

18November Has Come

This is AT LEAST top 20 worthy.

19Demon Days

There is no contest. Perfect ending to Damon Albarns masterpiece in a Gorilla costume. He manages to combine all the conceptual elements of the album into this one last epic song leaving the audience in euphoria of hope that despite all the ugliness the world has to offer for future generations there is still hope...

When in need of inspirational bliss hit play on "Don't get lost in heaven" and let you lead you into "Demon Days".

P. S the live version from Manchester is something that sticks.

20Every Planet We Reach Is Dead

Every Planet We Reach Is Dead showcases Damon Albarn's pure musical genius. The song is delightfully slick and smooth and combines Albarn's flawless arrangement with percussion and electro. It sounds like it should be used during a striptease on a satellite and is the high point of their finest album.

This song is so complex, this strictly as an instrumental flows perfect. The vocals give it more meaning though, "When you go back,
All the second selfless days, You're in love with him, I want to see you again, I love you, what are we going to do? " Talking about losing someone or something to someone else, there are many other aspects to this song's lyrics as well, all relating to losing and finding your soul along the way of life.

Easily my favorite track off demon days, I love the subtle string section and the melancholic lyric "I love that girl, but god only knows, it's getting hard, to see the sun, shining through, I love you, but what're we going to do? "

Hypnotic melodies and icy harmonies. - JWilner
