The Top Ten

Feel 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!
[Newest]I do adore Clint Eastwood, but dear god. This was the first ever Gorilla song I ever listened to and it's one of the greatest. Listening to it right now
More comments about Feel Good Inc.

2Clint Eastwood
This song is dope. Del the funkee homosapien killed it. Easily a classic
this should be number 1! The rap is so cool and the coming on in the chorus part is really awesome!
if it werent for this song, there wouldn't be feel good inc
[Newest]I'm not a big fan of rap but they did it right I love the lyrics nobody can sing lyrics like that that well

3On Melancholy Hill
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.
[Newest]My favorite song of all time. You can't help yourself to either cry, fall asleep or gently nod your head to Plastic Beach's highlight

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
chillout dancing song. Good for any mood. Fond memories
[Newest]I could not stop dancing to this song!

5Rhinestone Eyes
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
even of all gorillaz songs


[Newest]Cool and dark song

6Dirty Harry
Underrated song of the gorillaz, I love the mood and style of this song, it's very different and I'm always in a good mood whenever I hear it...
Holy crap! Why the hell is this number 9!? Its easily number one! It blows away every other song in their history! Its the bomb!
Love This one, has sofeel to it! I love mood it puts you in... so chill but so much groove and style!
[Newest]The best simple as

7Kids 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.
[Newest]The climax is just breathtaking. If someone told me I had to go deaf by blasting one song at painful volumes, I would choose this one.

8Tomorrow 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.
[Newest]Bets song with meaningful lyrics, good melancholy feel and a sick harmonica tune

9El 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 :(.
[Newest]Such a beautiful song

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.. !

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.
[Newest]FIFA Song! Great memories. It makes me happy.

The Contenders

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!
[Newest]That's all I have to say

12Empire Ants
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.
[Newest]A lovely low-key start, and then it explodes into a wall of sound so perfectly beautiful it makes my heart flip.

13Some 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!

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.
[Newest]54 has the Best guitar riff

15Every 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? "

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.

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.
[Newest]It's just so catchy!

Great song! It sounds better every time I listen to it. One of the best Gorillaz songs.

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.

20Sound Check (Gravity)
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

21Plastic Beach
This song was made perfectly. Should at least be within the top 10. It has a lovely tune and is enjoyable to sing a long to (as all of Gorillaz songs are) ^. ^ lt has a sound the makes you press the 'repeat' button on iTunes.
There is something about this song that makes me want to cry, laugh and jump at the same time.. It takes control of your body and your mind.
Awesome song the remembers me to Smoke weed every day

22Revolving Doors
Oh come on man... How could this become lost in the 20++? At least put this song in the top 10.
Just the best... I don't know why this song is not one of the most popular!
Laugh out loud number 28

23O Green World
I can listen to this when I'm mad or angry, happy, feel like dancing, cooking or when I'm walking down the street and need to feel cool. When the world ends, this is the song that need to be put on. I will prepare for this day and make sure this will happen. This song is also good for sex.Best gorillaz song ever.
The lyrics just blow me away on this. One of the Gorillaz more mellow but beautiful songs. I like to listen to it when I'm sad (or any mood, really). Plus groovy music.
Such catchy background singing and rhythms, can't get it out of my head!

24November Has Come
This is AT LEAST top 20 worthy.

25Hong Kong
I can't believe it didn't make it to Demon Days album, by far the BEST Gorillaz song! However, I see that most of the tops are all the hits they had, however, Hong Kong is a 7-minute masterpiece, it just takes you elsewhere. No explanations, this song should've been much more heard than most songs in this list. Is just Damon Albarn at his greatest as a musician and artist that he is.
Extraordinary song, very underrated in my opinion.. It should be at least top 5. Has an amazing intro and chorus.. Probably one of my favorites with "El Manana" and "Feel Good Inc."
Just Awesome, the shamisen in the song is great. Sounds like a song that came from a dream, just magic.

Many Gorillaz fans discount "The Fall, " Gorillaz most recent album, entirely. Maybe it's because the record was recorded on an iPad, or because it is composed of mostly experimental techno beats instead of whole, refined songs like other Gorillaz albums. But if you have not heard Amarillo, you are missing out. This track goes to deeper places in my "lonely soul" than I ever thought one song could. It's blips and pops roll as Albarn's vocals glide right through, delivering The Fall's best overall song. I honestly think that this track deserves a place among Gorillaz more recognized hits.
My GOD, why is this 36?! This is one of my favourite songs of all time! From the experimental album "The Fall". If you haven't heard it then please just go listen to it.
Easily the best Gorillaz song ever to hit us. How did this only place at 34?

This song is really catchy, gloomy but catchy. The way Damon singing the song sounded like something out a popular horror film. The part when the gargoyle sang "Rockit" reminds of Daft Punk. This song is pure genius.

28Stop the Dams
Easily worthy of top 20 if not top 10, one of the greatest gorillaz songs
Progressive, melancholic, underrated for sure, continuation of Hong Kong!

29To Binge
I can listen to this song all day long. It reminds me of a sweet time in my life and this song never lets me forget it.
This song is just the most sweet and melancholic song in the whole album, along with Melancholy Hill. Both Damon Albarn and Little Dragon's singer, Yukimi Nagano, sing with so much feeling... Just love this song.
Absolutely perfect.
One of the best songs I have heard in my entire life! I didn't like it at first, but when I really gave it a chance, I fell in love!

30Ghost Train
The first song the band ever recorded... It's on the g-sides album... Check it out!
Dude, it's ghost train... It is awesome.

31Slow Country
This song has so much feeling to it. It is by far the greatest gorillaz song.
Makes me forget the cares of this world and lets me slip into myself


This is a very beautiful song and is one of the more somber moments from Plastic Beach and Gorillaz in general.

34All Alone
Seriously? Some of these songs, I get why they aren't #1, and I am not saying All Alone is the best song, but 32? 32! Definitely part of the top 10, if not top 5!
I love the beat in this, and the rap is amazing. It always managess to get stuck inside of my head all of the time. Listening to it rite now.

35Latin Simone (Que Pasa Contigo)
The English version is very, very underrated.


37Glitter Freeze
I don't think this is their best song (Feel Good, Inc. And Dirty HArry for me, probably) But I think it should be much higher up than 48! It has such an awesome background-thing with the synthesizer. Every time I listen, my feet are tapping and my head is nodding. This song makes me move! :P
Why is this song now being mentioned? Plastic Beach was a marvelous album with a very versatile sound comparing to their early work. I enjoy driving to this as well

38Don't Get Lost In Heaven
Why this is not number one I have no idea

39Fire Coming Out of the Monkey's Head
Why is this not in the top 10?! A fantastic song with the amazing voice of Dennis Hopper.R.I.P.
Wow, it's the story of humanity and its not on this list?!?!
One of my favourite Gorillaz songs.


41New Genious (Brother)
Fantastic bass to this song - one of my personal favourites, although there are just so many to choose from!


Surprised I had to add this list, this song is the best gorillaz song out there.


Totally underrated song. It has an excellent beat to it and 2D's voice sounds awesome. Not my favorite Gorillaz song, (That would be either DARE, Stylo, Or Tomorrow Comes Today) but it's definitely up there.

Best chill song ever... Its pretty good... so I don't have enough letters err characters or something... so I'm gonna fill this space with other stuff... McNuggets are good. Unicorns are cool. And Domestic Violence is bad. Good Day to you.

46Last Living Souls

47Pirate Jet
Why the Hell ain't this on here? That creepy(but cool) sound in the background is actually saying the song's title! Hats off to Albarn! You too Hewlett!
Such a great song

48Hillbilly Man

This should at least be on the top 20

50Double Bass
This song is gritty and awesome. "all of which makes me anxious. at times, unbearably so." my personal favorite Gorillaz song.

51Spitting Out the Demons
The bass makes this song wonderful. The unfortunate part about the song is that it is pretty unknown since it's on D-Sides, but give it a listen because it's really good. Yeah, it's no Feel Good Inc. Or Clint Eastwood, but it's still amazing.
Variational, at least to me

52Lil' Dub Chefin'
Great partnership with Space Monkeyz!

53The Sounder

54Highway (Under Construction)

55Cloud of Unknowing
Should at least be here maybe not in the top 10 but its a pretty good song! And its not even on the list until I just added it...

56White Flag


58Man Research (Clapper)
I'm really surprised this song didn't even make it on the list... It's not worth top 10 or top 20 but it's definitely a great track with great atmosphere, great vocals and, dare I say it, it's just one of my favourite off the first Gorillaz album. Such an underrated song...

59White Light
This is the song this is cooler than it appears to be at first look.

60Little Pink Plastic Bags
This song is the gorillaz to me

61The Joplin Spider
This is a little strange but really bold song. It definitely deserves your attention.

62Left Hand Suzuki Method
This is one of my favourites!


64We Are Happy Landfill

6568 State

66Phoner to Arizona

67The Swagga

68Rock the House
In my opinion, it's very catchy and I find myself singing it sometimes during school, and people ask me what song it is and I just say "Well, don't just check out the song, check out Gorillaz! "
Del the homosapien astonishes me again with his incredible lyricism in this catchy song and even better video.
I just can't believe. This song has so low rating
[Newest]Why is this song so low

69Bill Murray
Off of d sides but one of the best
