AMAZING! Love the lyrics, would definitely watch Owls of Ga'hoole just to listen to the song again!

This song is awesome. Listening to this it fells like I am in heaven. It is the most beautiful song of owl city. Its so soothing and sweet feels like listening and listening

This is such an amazing song! It makes me want to fly and be free! It's alive and lovely! I think it should be first, although I love Firelight as well!

It is, without a doubt, my FAVORITE song from Owl city, it just makes me want to jump up and start flying! It's so beautiful and catchy and upbeat!

The tuning and vocals are just out of the park, Carly rae jepsen only adds to the unique charm of this wonderful song

6On the Wing

Best song ever from Owl city. Listen to this song in a quiet room with full volume and feel it. I bet you'll feel damn good. Long live Adam Young!

There is an excellence spotted beneath the song. (Which is great and incredible! )Good work Adam.

Better then salt water room and hot air balloon should be in top 3. Listen to it its a hell song to be listen at night.

Not just the best Owl City song ever made, but one of the best tunes of the past 10 years.

7Rainbow Veins

Absolutely amazing! This song is one of my favourite or all time and I have over 3000 songs! I find it absolutely stunning. The lyrics are very unique and it really makes the listener feel as though it is happening to them. After Fireflies, it is their best. (Hello Seattle is tying with Rainbow Veins! )

This is the best song of Adam young. I think it should be in top 4

Great song for everyone at any time. a must listen for all those who love music!

Very good song I don't know why but when I listen to this song I think it is best song of owl city

8Galaxies

Easily best of the owl city songs. It just makes you happy when ever you listen to it. Next best in order, Hot Air Balloon, Fireflies, Honey and the Bee, Rainbow Veins, Dreams don't turn to dust

Galaxies is really good and should be ranked way higher than no.22
It has a great foot tapping music and its tough for me to decide between galaxies and fireflies but I this galaxies get my vote.

Ugh! Why do I have to pick between this and To The Sky?
But seriously, this is awesome. Great tune, great feel, and I love the content! - jessicaclaytor

The strings get me SO PUMPED

9If My Heart Was a House

Such a wonderful song! You can tell Adam poured his haeart into every note! It reminds me of past relationships and all the good times I have shared with them! My heart always skips a beat whenever I here this song!

Lovely, sad song! I love it so much definitely the best of Owl City!

This song made me think of my bff. He does have a girlfriend and I'm not gonna mess with her and I don't want to hurt him. He loves her to death but I have him as a bff and he's always there when I need tot talk to someone and I love him to death ^_^

Just in love with this beautiful song!

10Alligator Sky

I really liked this! This is my favorite among all cause of the background music of the rap makes everything change to the best... WHY IS THIS THE 17TH!? THIS SHOULD BE BETTER THANK FIREFLIES... I liked how adam sings... The lyrics are so smart and GREAT I love it

It's absolutely a wonderful song, I really love it... And so blowing, I think that it should be between the top10

Adams incorporation of shawn chrystopher is flawless. It fits perfectly and makes this song one of the best Owl City has to offer. Its upbeat and just fun to listen to.

It's so unique that I prefer it should be in the top 5 list

The Contenders

11Hello Seattle

The music is really good. Not much words, just music. I love owl city (Adam). Well Done!

Wow What a beautiful song Adam I just liked your style in this. Awesome song one of my favorites, Best song I have heard in owl city. One of the best song of owl city. It is really sweet, I love it! Thumbs up

This song is AMAZING! But then again, all of Owl City's songs are amazing. I really love Hello Seattle though... It's my favorite.

It's sad the is so underrated, should be #1. The music is so electrifying.

13When Can I See You Again?

Thumbs up if you have seen Wreck-It Ralph and loved When Can I See You Again! - MaxAttaxSportz

Soundtrack ending of Film Wreck it Ralph! Awesome song! Feel like in the future!

This is a great song. I just have one question: Why on earth did the Wreck-It Ralph people decide to put the BEST track in the movie... IN THE CREDITS? At least put it at the very end. Amazing "feel-good" track with the sort of "otherworldly" start that made Owl City's previous tracks, like "Fireflies" such a hit.

I bored listen this song!

14Silhouette

A beautiful, emotion-filled song. I fell in love with it almost immediately. You can tell that Adam put love into every note in this song. Beautiful work as always, recommended to anyone who has yet to hear it.

This song is simply amazing! It touches your hear and you can always relate to it. "i'm tired of waking up in tears because I can't put back these phobeas and fears"

Beautiful songs, relax and good music. It must be on top 10! :))

Inch perfect in every way.

15Cave In

This song isn't just isn't one of Owl City's best, it's their best. Heck, it is the best, out of music itself. Listening to the lyrics makes you know what to do when your stressed, a quality that makes it unique, and with the cave-mining comparison, many words like "octane", "turnpike", "bedroll, " and "undermining" just add to the inteense beat and radio-like music at both the beggining and end of the song.

Best song ever in my opinion! Should definitely be in the Top 10 for sure. The beat is just incredible and the way that it tugs at your heart and mind as well makes it awesome. Riding a dirtbike down a turnpike always takes its toll on me. Simply Amazing

This song is Owl City's best. In my opinion, it's this, then Hello Seattle / Fireflies / Hello Seattle (Remix), followed by "When Can I See You Again? " from Wreck-It Ralph.
I would say Fireflies is the best, but Cave In isn't only well written, but the melody is very powerful. The lyrics and overall vocals match the song's melodies and harmonies to create what I believe is Owl City's masterpiece.

First owl city song I heard

16Honey and the Bee

It's such a beautiful song. I don't how this isn't even in the top 20. That's just cray cray.

This is like the most underrated song produced by owl city! I think it still deserves a higher spot on the list...

One of the best duet ever. Breanne Düren and Adam Young are great. More duet please =)

This song is the sweetest song I ever heard.

17How I Became the Sea

Simply enchanting. One of Owl city's greatest. I also love Rainbow Veins, but clearly this one needed the vote more. This one also shows us the rare time Adam uses a huge tempo change in his music, this one and cave in are the only examples I can think of. Not to mention the opening and closing are perfectly trancing. Love to go to sleep/wake up to this one.

How I Became the Sea tells the story of Adam's sleepy overnight rise to stardom, in unique a way as possible. He compares himself to the sea, Of June is a lobster shell, Ocean Eyes to the soft oceanside and his hit Fireflies, is a hurricane crashing in, tossing him into the sea of fame. He predicts his the rest of his career, saying he'll bring the oceanside to it's knees and feel the even tide deepen his shallow dreams, giving somewhat of a happy finality to his career. What a song by the young genius from Minnesota.

This song is so wonderful, and I just love how he sounds. This song can calm you down, and make you feel so happy. This song clearly belongs in the top 10!

18Gold

Seriously, 38?! Goodness, people need to actually listen to this song! Gold is the perfect graduation song. It's a really good song to listen to when you feel down and depressed... Just listen to the melody and you'll feel renewed. This song is way underrated!

This song should be played in every single graduation ceremony. The lyrics are so inspirational... It encourages everyone to step into a brighter future because they're gold. This song will have you wanting to be a champion.

This song is just so overwhelming, good tunes and sweet lyrics this should be qualified in top 10!, so amazing and magnificent and so inspiring and touching one of my favorite songs too

18!? I mean yeah the other songs are great but this one deserves at least 10! This is one of the best songs Owl City's ever made!

19Deer In the Headlights

Deer in the Headlights is upbeat and funny, unlike Owl City's other stuff. I don't understand how this could be ranked so low. Love this song! Fireflies is okay but I kind of get tired of it after awhile...

My favorite Owl City Song in "All things bright and beautiful", and maybe of all time. It's a really good song, very up beat, and sticks in your head like duct tape. Great song

I love this song it's probably the top best in all things bright and beautiful! Definitely upbeat and something everyone can listen too!

Such an upbeat and crazy song! It's great for that feeling when you have a new crush...just pure awesomeness like flying. But seriously, anything Owl City qualifies.

20I'll Meet You There

This song is absolutely beautiful! How is it not at least in the top 10? This has been my favorite song by Owl City for 2 years now and I have heard over 40 of their songs and I'm also a HUGE overall Owl City fan! Beautiful lyrics and soothing: "We'll fill the metro skies with country air, and when you close your tired eyes I'll meet you there. "

Get voting. This is an amazing song, if you actually bother to listen to it. So get listening, realize the power of the song and get voting
