Best John Mayer Songs


The Top TenXW

1Slow Dancing In a Burning Room

It is so beautiful and true, it almost makes me cry.

You can feel the emotion and the pain in his voice, and I think that everyone can feel it in his or her heart.

This song isn't only the best song of John Mayer, it's the best song in my life!

This song reminds me of my old self so I believe that it's the best song from John Mayer I've never heard a better song from all new artists.

With sincere lyrics and a beautiful melody, this blue oriented master piece is easily the best Mayer song. It conveys love, soul and pain in a melodic heartbreaking, yet romantic, ballad.

Best song in my book! Truly Amazing

2Your Body Is a Wonderland

One of the best songs I've heard lately. Great stuff by Mayer

It's so relaxing and yeah, chicks do dig this song. The lyrics are just amazing!

It makes girls feel appreciated.. Aside from the good vibe of the beat of the song.. The lyrics are sincere and not too shaggy...

The guitar solo though 😍

This song is amazing. Not only does John do good, but the whole band too. - Bman23

This is the track that made me fall in love with Mayer. The beginning of it is absolutely gorgeous along with the rest of the song. The guitar solo toward the end is pure talent. Love Mayer.

This is my most favourite song. Out of all the artists I listen to, this one track makes me feel the most. The guitar and the entire intro is absolutely phenomenal and the lyrics, and Mayer's ability to tell a story in so little time is incredible. The very last bit "Keep me where the light is" speaks absolute volumes.

The Best song of Mayer.. Definitely should be on 2nd

Beautiful song. Deserves a better rank definitely. ^_^

This song got me hooked. Beautiful lyrics that a lot of you would find very meaningful if you give it a listen. Still to this day, sometimes I tear up when I listen to it!

This song made me give John a second listen. Now, I'm hooked. He has Stevie Ray going on with a great voice and inspired lyrics. Who could not love this and be moved by it?

This is Mayer's best song. Once I heard it, I couldn't stop listening! Such a great song. The lyrics and the beat are amazing!

this song is incredible and should be what we all live by. I even taught it to my friends so we all sing it whenever were about to fall asleep.

Say what you need to say!
John has a voice so drowsy and at the same time light and happy that its, its, words can't explain the feeling

Amazing vocals, even more amazing guitar, it's just the perfect song
It's all true, anyone should say what they need to say

Wonderful song, always enjoy listening to it!

Beautiful melody and such a soothing song. Just can't keep this song outta my head. Love it! Let it be in top 5.

My favorite John Mayer song. I listen to this when I'm trying to fall asleep. It always makes me feel better when I'm feeling down.

I love it because it's so relatable. Also because musically it's ingenious. I love the acoustics and the rhythm of it.

The lyrics are amazing.. it's something that we all worry about at some point in our lives, and I feel the music has the feel of a running train to it.. LOVELY!

Easily his best song. Each verse has a slightly different tune, and the music complements his voice perfectly. Huge variety of tunes.

This has got to be his best song! Got a GREAT beat. Really glad I found it as I looked through his songs.

This song is absolutely beautiful. John's voice sounds amazing.

Such a chill song very unique and captures the essence of john Mayer's music/genre

This needs to be at least at the top 10 Continuum is his best album and this is one of the best it gets stuck in my head and and John's falsetto is amazing


Such an amazing song, has a great vibe and he really shows his range and how it so easy for him tossing both high and low, love the music too!

There's no excuse for this song to have not made the top 10. This is crazy.

14Free Fallin'

John Mayer is at least a damn good musician and songwriter. One Direction are just bricks in a puzzle with no other talent than singing, like Bieber and Rihanna

It isn't often that the cover is better than the original.. But John Mayer completely gives Tom Petty a run for his money!

Mayer's Best song Of All Time!

Literally, one of the best songs I've heard...

15Edge of Desire

That top ten list is not complete without this song, in fact, it deserves to be right there at the top, any spot less than that is injustice. Period!

How can this song not be number 1?! Listening to it just makes me feel like nothing else. What he says is true love. You just feel how sexy he is.

Its a real heartwarming song.
This is the best song I have come across.
This one deserves a place in the top 5
Top 10 would be undermining the quality of this song.

Such a shame it's not in the top 3. This song definitely deserves better.

16No Such Thing

This song is easily top 3

"I wanna run through the halls of my high school
I wanna scream at the top of my lungs."
How could this not be on the top 3? This was the soundtrack of my childhood!

17Bigger Than My Body

It's so inspiring to me... It should definitely go up in the list... Maybe even top it... Because it so deserves that

This song deserves a better rank, you guys must listen it!

Inspiring and a surprisingly good upbeat


Bloody people all of you,
Its a shame for this site while kept this great song under 22

Totally its worst voting by you your fans

Awesome riff, kinda bluesy, can't wait for the Born and Raised Tour

One of the greatest political songs of the past 10 years.

19The Heart of Life

Amazing song, the Lyrics are great. Favorite John Mayer Song, highly inspirational

Such beautiful lyrics. This song has a really great meaning behind it, definitely my favorite Mayer song.

This song takes me to the stars...

20In Your Atmosphere

Best Mayer song ever! Amazing lyrics and vocals. My favourite from live in LA. My top 5 would be: 1- In Your Atmosphere, 2- Neon (live in la), 3- Gravity, 4- Split Screen Sadness, 5- Stop This Train. So make this higher! Way better than the new country stuff he's into at the moment.

His best song by far. Shouldn't be at 37! Come on people! Amazing guitar and vocals once again. "I'm gonna steer clear, burn up in your atmosphere"

Absolutely amazed that this song isn't ranked higher. The guitar in this song is fantastic, and I don't think I have ever heard John sing better than on this song.

What adds to the charm of this song (for me), is the fact that it hasn't been released on a studio album. He wrote it in the tourbus. Well, if In Your Atmosphere is a leftover song, I can't even imagine what kind of other masterpieces he has written in his tourbus.

This song. It will never get old. John Mayer is a genius.
