The Top Ten

1
Terrible Things
Every time I listen to this song, I cry. I've never heard a more tear-jerking song in my life. This should be number one in my opinion, definitely. It's absolutely adorable.
Possibly the saddest and most emotional song they've sung or anyone has. So much raw emotion. Should be at least top 10.
First song that I've ever heard that made me cry the first time I heard it. This song is so sad and so amazingly beautiful at the same time.. Should be top 5
[Newest]When my friend first showed me this song in class I broke into tears... This song is beautiful

2Miserable at Best
This is the first song I heard from them and it made me cry. Its just so beautiful with the piano and the lyrics are very meaningful and heartbreaking I want this type of song to be hear by my ears! Please vote mayday parade, you're the best!
This song mad me more independent in myself, to look back at my mistakes and move forward. Thank you mayday parade. The lyrics are amazing and tell a beautiful/sad story.
One of the most powerful songs I've ever heard. Pure Magic. Deserves to be number one or two.
[Newest]Beautiful I tear up every time

3Oh Well, Oh Well
AMAZING song, come on. It doesn't seem to be on the list yet! That's just wrong. Definitely my favourite song by them. Brilliant song with an ever more brilliant music video. Definitely should be up the top of the list
Honestly this song should be at least on the top ten. It has great meaning and the music just draws you in. A lot of people can relate to it and it certainly helps you getting through break ups haha. This is by far one of Mayday Parade's best work.
Oh Well, Oh Well is by far one of the BEST Mayday Parade songs out there. I love it. The song isn't just a song it's my addiction. Well, the band itself is my addiction! This song should at least be in the top three though.
[Newest]One of their most catchiest songs, haha

4Jamie All Over
This song is one of their best and should be either in first place or at least in the top three with "Miserable at Best" and "Kids in Love! " Also check out the band Forever the Sickest Kids because you won't be disappointed.
I feel like I love Mayday Parade's slower songs such as Miserable at Best, but this upbeat song is brilliant and stands out from a lot of the slower ones (which can get a little monotonous after a while, as much as I love them). I love it and it definitely deserves to be higher up.
This is the first song of theirs I ever heard, and it's without a doubt their best. Super catchy, super meaningful, it really deserves better than number ten.
[Newest]This is the song that made me fall in love with mayday parade it deserves to be in the top three at least!

5You Be the Anchor That Keeps My Feet On the Ground, I'll Be the Wings That Keep Your Heart In the Clouds
I think that this song is their best, everything about it is perfect in my eyes. The lyrics are meaningful and relatable, the vocals of Derek and Jason just work so well together and create a masterwork of amazing vocals/ lyrics. Not to mention the instruments compliment the song so well, not showcasing the bands skill necessarily but their ability to make a song simply beautiful.
I think this song is one of the best, and should get higher, like, this song has strong emotion and you should hear this, I really recommend yo
Derek and Jason's voices are just pure beauty in this song. It's amazing and it's the song that made me fall in love with mayday!
[Newest]This song just gives me that feeling you know? Like that tingly one that makes your heart all fuzzy

6Stay
This is one of the best songs I have ever listened to. Being one of the earlier songs written by Mayday Parade, I believe that this one should definitely be in the top two. I love every song written by Mayday Parade, but this one has a powerful meaning, and its melody never ceases to catch my attention. Everything about this song is beautiful and inspirational.
This is my favorite song of this band.. This should really be number 1..
It's so amazing. I'm sorry but it should've been number one
[Newest]This is one of my favorites this song really gets his feelings across it's a beautiful song in my opinion

7Hold Onto Me
This quickly became my favourite mayday parade song. Lyrically, it is absolutely beautiful, every word that is sung portrays so much emotion. It just has me in floods of tears every time I hear it, definitely desrves to be higher in this list.
This is one of the saddest songs of all time, and one of their best. The vocals are prime, and the lyrics are beautiful. Hold on to me, hold on to me, should have you sobbing.
No no no no no. this song should be number 1! The lyrics and the tune are so simple, but that's what makes it beautiful.
[Newest]This song hits me so hard. definitely needs to be higher on this list!

8Jersey
I absolutely love this song! Like how the lead singer says 'I am just gone beyond repair' like it is not a big deal that he is like that way. A very touching song indeed. My mom even yells at me because I play to loud! I believe this should be #1.
This song is just amazing and, the vocals, the lyrics everything! Deserves to be in the top 5! Its so relevant to me and many others! I can't even its so good! If your reading this stop what your doing and listen to it!
It's just an overall great song, with the best vocals ever heard (or at least by me) in a Mayday Parade song. Plus the feelings behind the song make it so much better.
[Newest]This is the song that started my obsession. I now have all the albums and I probably know every lyric to every song... This song is still my favourite though

9When I Get Home, You're So Dead
I love the overall attitude of this song, and it's so catchy, everything Mayday Parade is about. Terrible things isn't bad but Miserable at Best to me is just so whiny and a stereotypical overly emotional ballad. This song much better represents Mayday Parade and I personally think it's the best song they've made to date. Come on guys let's get this one to the top!
This song is absolutely AMAZING! It's my favorite song by Mayday. Every single part of it is just like pure poetry. The lyrics of this song hit me every single time I listen to it because they're so relatable. Basically, in my opinion, it's the best song to listen to when you're mad at a guy because you feel like you've been played.
My favorite Mayday Parade song in the whole entire world. Never fails to put me in an fantastic mood! I love them so much! Never less the song!
[Newest]This is defiantly my favourite song by mayday parade. Mayday parade do a lot of ballads with heartfelt lyrics and amazing tunes but this still keeps the great lyrics and makes it into a fierce, upbeat song. Personally this is their greatest song!

10If You Wanted a Song Written About You, All You Had to Do Was Ask
This song is just simply amazing. If you're going through a break and now you're finally free, this should be the song you listen too. Its motivating, Not sad like most. I live because of this song
This is one of my favorite songs! When you listen to the lyrics and acually under stand there meaning it is a very strong and emotional song. One of the best with my opinion.
What this should be in the top 10. The bass is just so powerful and the lyrics makes you sing with it

The Contenders

11Three Cheers for Five Years
Lord, where do I start. From beginning to end, this song is amazing. But the acoustic version instead of the album one. Simply amazing.
I love this song so much; it's so beautiful a amazing! The first time I heard it-the acoustic version, that is, I was floored by how great it way. Personally, this is my number one.
This song has been my favorite song undoubtedly for the past 5 years, and probably many to come. I don't even understand why or what it does but it is simply amazing after so long.
[Newest]It's an amazing song.

Absolutely amazing. The melody is very moving and powerful, should be at the top. This song was at the top of the top on my ipod for most of it's life.

13Anywhere But Here
The first song I've heard of Mayday Parade, and now um researching on their songs. I absolutely LOVE this song so much, the chorus makes me feel so emotional though I don't know what kind of, it reminds me of my love and how much I miss him.
Not only the first that I heard from mayday, but its just catchy and has that real smooth feeling but at the same time that punk rock feel that makes you get up at the same time and sing along to it!
This song is perfect, that's all I have to say.
[Newest]This isn't the first Mayday Parade song I heard, but it's the one that got me hooked. I love the lyrics and the catchy guitar melody!

This song is defiantly one of my favourite mayday parade songs very catchy and upbeat.

15The Last Something That Meant Anything
<3 love this song

16I Swear This Time I Mean It
Everything about the song is simple, they are not trying to prove a point about how talented they are like you see other artists do. This song is elegant and comes straight from the heart.
I love how this song starts off it really pulls u in and makes you want to never stop listening I love music and this song really helps me remember what music is really about
This song has to be in the top 5 at least! The lyrics really get to you and the music is simply and totally in sync with the mood of the song.

17Get Up
I love this song; it is so upbeat and really great. I love how it is so fast and actually sounds happy, if you get my meaning. I absolutely love this song! !

18The Silence
What?! 23?! How could this so far down here when it deserves to be up there?! Come on, people! This song really deserves it!

It has a different sound, and the lyrics are so sad. A bit dark for them, but good nonetheless.

Vote, people!
What?! 27?! What is wrong with the Mayday Parade fans?! This song really deserves to be in the top ten. On my iPod, it is the most played Mayday Parade song. It has such beautiful lyrics and the chorus is amazing. It's my phone ringtone. The intro is just epic
This is one of the most amazing songs by mayday parade, I personally think it should at least be number 5

No way this can be so down... Such an ear worthy song... Pure epic kind of music... One of the most well composed song by mayday... Absolutely in love with its melody... Better listen it first and then vote... You will come to know what I m talking about...
This is the first song I heard from Mayday Parade, and instantly I fell in love. This is one of the best songs to listen to if you have just been through a breakup, and the music is just amazing.
The whole song is a masterpiece. The vocals are great (as usual), the music is incredible, and the intro is kind of epic.

I think this deserves to be higher.
[Newest]This one deserves to be on the top ten list. It's one of the greatest songs ever written. Bruised and Scarred will forever be my favorite song.

20Angels
One of my absolute favorites. When my boyfriend and I broke up, I had this song on repeat for three days straight because they lyrics are just so powerful.
This song is just, wow. It gives me chills and feels every time I listen to it. Wow. Do yourselves a favor, and give it a try. One of Mayday's bests!
Why isn't Angels on the top ten? This song is so emotional and catchy, absolutely my favorite one!
