The Top Ten

1
The Middle
There was a time in the early part of the 2000s (2001) where so many good rock songs came out. And this song is one of them.

First song I heard by them and had it memorized before I even knew the name of the band. Awesome
I bet most people picked this just because they know it there are better jimmy eat world songs I know because I am a huge fan and even they said it in a interview that they thought that this song was not as good as other (most) jimmy eat world songs

This song is for reals one of the most emotional, deep, and moving thing I've ever heard. You don't listen to this song, you experience this work of art.
In my opinion the best song ever! The amazing layer-upon-layer intro, the superbly heartfelt, beautiful lyrics, I cannot really describe how much I love this song! I remember listening to it just before my 23rd birthday and was a special moment for me!
No other song on this list can match the indescribable beauty of this song. Give it a listen and it might change your life...
[Newest]This song immediately grips you from the first listen. Seeing it performed live was awe-inspiring. Not just my favorite Jimmy song, but my favorite song period.

3Pain
This beats The middle! Pain always gets me in a good mood, just because it is so upbeat. Not to mention the cool 2nd verse. It takes my pain away!
I'm baffled this is not at least top three this song flows so well
This song hooks just anyone up aka this song rocks! It does take my pain away!
[Newest]It's simply amazing, very catchy tune alongside great lyrics have made this song really worth listening to

4Kill
Great melody and awesome lyrics. For me "You kill me, you build me up but just to watch me break" is one of the best song lines I've ever heard. In my opinion their best song!
How is this not in the top ten, let alone top 5.

It is such a moving song.
One of their first songs I ever heard and I have to admit: I fell in love with their music...
[Newest]Best song on the album followed by 23 & Work

5Sweetness
Awesome song, very different from their usual songs and just great drums guitar and lush vocals!
I don't listen to Jimmy Eat World much anymore but this song still plays in my head every now and then. One of the most memorable songs of my childhood too
How is this not in the top 5? Very underrated on here, I'm surprised by it's current position!

6Bleed American
Brilliant song and even better album one of the only albums I can listen to all the way through without skipping a track.
This is what the top five on the list should look like:

1. The Middle
2. Pain
3. A Praise Chorus
4. Bleed American
5. Sweetness

Get it sorted please, this list is really messed up at the moment!
Their most badass song.
[Newest]This song is what got me into Jimmy Eat World. If only all of their songs were like this.

7Hear You Me
A beautiful beautiful song. Really touches my heart every time I hear it. Jimmy Eat World has sung such a emotional and breathtaking song. I am very young but I am very fortunate I got to hear it.
Amazing song... I first heard it in the movie "The Butterfly Effect" and was instantly addicted to it... If you haven't heard of it yet then go and listen!
This song is so emotional! I know it's not for everybody but if you ever feel sad type it into youtube!
[Newest]Love this song so much. The vocals are so rad.

8A Praise Chorus
The first song I ever listened to by them. Absolutely amazing, and the best song I've heard by them. Sweetness comes in a close second, but this song really is just absolutely fantastic. 10 out of 10 recommend.
It's sad to see how little recognition this song gets, this is an excellent song. Give it a try. Top 3 for me.

9Work
This is a very, very nice song..
I really love it!
This guys really rock... They are one of the best emo band in the world...
And for me, this song proves it..

10For Me This Is Heaven
"For Me This is Heaven" sets Jimmy Eat World's most common tone through their entire existence since 99's Clarity album. Lyrically, the band is immaculate, with this song serving as a prime and pioneering example with lines like "The first star I see may not be a star" (see Konstantine by Something Corporate), and "Do you still feel the butterflies? Can you still hear the last goodbyes? ".

The Contenders

11Polaris
This song should definitely be at least under the top 10! It's such a amazing song. "I feel that when I'm old, I'll look at you and know: The world was beautiful." Please listen to this song, you won't regret it, I swear!
Amazing song but even more amazing in how the hell it isn't in the countdown
'man.. Why this song ain't in top 10.. ?

12Get It Faster
Should definitely be higher!

13Just Tonight
Easily their best song along with bleed American, the lyrics of this song are about sex

14My Best Theory
Great song.. Their first song that I heard and fell in love as soon as I heard it.. And its one of their best to.. I think it deserves to be in top 3..

15Closer

16Invented
I think Invented is better than 23. But that's my opinion at least

17Disintegration
Unfortunately, this song never got the attention or recognition it deserved. Dark, deeply melodic, haunting and epic, this song should easily be in the top ten.
How is this not in the top 5, the music is great the chorus is great and of course the lyrics is the best part

18Lucky Denver Mint
The only option from clarity on this list! That's truly shameful, Jimmy Eat Worlds best album and easily one of the most inspirational albums of all time!

19If You Don't, Don't
Always makes me happy

20Nothing Wrong
This is such an underrated song. It's got so much energy and emotion.
