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.

This is a must

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!

This is literally the best song ever! The synth is just brilliant! :D

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

Simply the most astonishing and breathtaking song I have ever heard from him

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 ^_^

Best song in my opinion

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

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! :))

14Honey 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.

This one should be 2 and!

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!

Rank this higher or I'll cave in

Awesome song. Mind refreshing. It should be up on the list.

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!

18Deer 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!

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.

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

My good how come this song on 19.This should at least be 4 or 5.

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
