Fireflies
What a song!
It's different from others... No romantic... Just natural and out from this world. It makes me feel happier whenever I listen
FULL VOLUME AND REPEAT BUTTON... And the song becomes best
Owl City n Adam rocked
Its slightly better than vanilla twilight because of its uniqueness
Thumbs UP to this song
fireflies is OBVIOUSLY the best!

2Vanilla Twilight
Most beautiful love song of all time. Best heart touching lyrics ever. I didn't hear such a beautiful song before in my whole life. It gives me goosebumps every time I hear.

Trust me get the song otherwise you will miss the most beautiful love song of all time on this planet.

5On 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.

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 ^_^

9Galaxies
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!

10Hello 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.

The Contenders

11Rainbow 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! )
I thing this should be right after firefilies cause it's just amaazing! :D
This is the best song of Adam young. I think it should be in top 4

12Silhouette
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! :))

13Deer 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. Its 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!

14Alligator 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.

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.
One of the Best Owl City Song. Really beautiful melody. Love it so much. Listen to this Song!
I LOVE this song! One of my favorites! It really gives you that great Owl City feel! Great lyrics, hypnotizing music, and all in all, a stuck-in-your-head-in-a-good-kind-of-way- song!

16Honey and the Bee
One of the best duet ever. Breanne Düren and Adam Young are great. More duet please =)
It's such a beautiful song. I don't how this isn't even in the top 20. That's just cray cray.
Great song, I really like the duet with Breanne. More duets please. This song should be at least in the top 20.

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.
Listen to sample

18Meteor Shower
Short and sweet... Enough said. It's definitely Owl City's best song, if only it was longer...
I think this must be in the top 3 great music, and lyrics I listen for about 1 hour every day its awesome
Can any body tell why this is below owlcity rules and is my best
I can't stop listening to this 2 min masterpiece.. Its amazing.. The lyrics are so sweet :)
Please don't let me go I desperately need you

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

23Angels
This is a really amazing song, definitely one of my favorites. Really disappointed that it wasn't ranked higher than it is here.
This is my one of my favorite songs ever! I love angels so much it reminds me so much of... Me, how I'm always believing anything can happen, and how every one thinks I hallucinate but I don't think I do! I think there really are angels up there!
This song is beautifull! It should be in the top three! :O

This song is so brilliant! You really have to listen to it. It's got a great core melody and beautiful music. Definitely one of my favorite songs of all times!
The beginning instrumental coming in and the ending harmony are so beautiful and majestic. So surreal beyond words. Adam, what would I do without you?

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. "

33Take It All Away
Awesome song of the owl city, yeah it's old school but there is the quality of the song. This should be places on the places of 30 and below.
"You tear me up when you say, you wanna take it all away, take it all away-ay-ay-ay-ay" 'enough ' said.
I realize there's so many good owl city songs, but this one definitely deserves some recognition!

35Peppermint Winter
This is the best song ever! Adam perfectly describes how amazing winter is, and how he has so much fun with it. The background music is amazing and he sings it with a lovely wistful voice. The chorus is the best part. "THIS PEPPERMINT WINTER IS SO SUGAR SWEET, I DON'T NEED TO TASTE TO BELIEVE, WHAT'S DECEMBER WITHOUT CHRISTMAS EVE. Best song ever.
It's a really good song to listen in winter time
When all of the world around you is white
It's very soothing

44Kamikaze
Four Words:

OH COMET COME DOWN!
I'm surprised no one added this song, it is amazing, listen to it on YouTube some time. It is in Adams album all things bright and beautiful.
Love it! Like oh my God, Adam Young is really talented! This is the most amazing romantic song in the world!
More comments about KamikazeListen to sample

45The Real World
Adam's signature upbeat, electronic music is in full force on this song. The lyrics only add to his usual charm by using descriptive words that give the audience the warm fuzzies. In my opinion, his music creates a form of escapism; it's like diving into a colorful poem. His words carefully craft nature, relationships, and random unrealities. This song is no exception and can almost be treated as a theme song to all of Owl City's music so far.
This song is beautiful, not just the vocals, but the lyrics. They depict a wonderful scene of nature and the reality of the world and our life. Listen to it and you'll feel peaceful too. Seriously, guys, just give it a try.
This is a song that makes you wake up to the world. When you're walking and you listen to it and you look around you, it just feels... It feels so beautiful and sad at the same time. Should be much higher on the list! Please listen to it, everyone!

46Lonely Lullaby
Personally My favorite, its usual Owl City, but different; way better than Vanilla Twilight. Also it's not overly popular (wasn't even on this list when I looked)
Beautiful song.. I just have one question: Anne Mary, why did you have to leave Adam? Long distance is not hard if you have a guy as great as Adam, who's so worth waiting for...
One of my favorite songs from owl city... This song has great emotions behind it

48Speed of Love
Speed of love is such an energetic song, it puts you in a totally different mood and looks at love in a completely different perspective. Can't believe this is number 45! It has amazing lyrics and the catchiest music combined which is a rarity!
Listen to sample

49Beautiful Times
One of Adam's best songs! The instrumental is creative and powerful, it fits the lyrics as they are very powerful as well. The melodies are catchy too. It begins as a sad, dark song, but ends up being his most optimistic song in my opinion. It's just a streak of light, a ray of hope which brightens your day and never fails to make you feel stronger!
Only takes one listen to love this song! Great new song that should definitely make its way to the top of the charts!
This song is awesome... I get goosebumps every time I listen to it.. deserves to be in the top 10...

It is a great song, and I mean come on, you've just got to feel for him; he sang this as a reply song to taylor swift's "enchanted" thinking about them getting together supposedly, and then she just goes and get's another boyfriend, probably breaking his heart. It surely has to be ranked a lot higher than this. Great song! P.S. aDAM ROCKS!
"I was enchanted to meet you"... Wow! I guess that pretty much sums it all up.
So damn beautiful... I was enchanted by hearing this song! One of my favorites...
