The Top TenXW

1Dare You to Move

This song is so great, that it was the only one I wanted to make a piano cover for. It's very catchy, and always puts you in a good mood when you listen to it. It's definitely on my top ten playlist.

Most beautiful and inspiring of their songs. Made me want to look up every single switchfoot song and see if they all made me feel the way this one does!

Dare you to move was the first song I heard from SF and now I have all their albums and I've been to 31 concerts! Long live SF! - caleb

This is my best song

2Meant to Live

Better than Dare You to Move, EPIC riffs, EPIC drumming, EPIC vocals, beats everything that's being played on Radio today

Switchfoot =

Amazing use of the instrumentals in the beginning, then let's the vocals in the first verse stand alone without much music, allowing for the lyrics to ring unopposed. Immediately after the instruments regain their position. The mesh that the instruments have in the chorus with the vocals is further augmented by the fact that it is the first time in the song that they meet, and they sound amazing. The riffs are great, as well as the drums. All in all a great song.

Switchfoot come alive! Great track with awesome riffs and equally good drumming! Classic switchfoot...

Words are something everyone on the planet can say about themselves.

A great song about not waiting to die to come alive. Don't let society drag you down and desensitize you! Switchfoot's the best!

This song is inspiring and one of the best Switchfoot songs of all time! It deserves at least 2nd place but really should be in 1st!

8! What? Should be first or second, right up in the top two with dark horses. Both amazing songs. Vote for them

Afterlife is my second favorite song. But.. have you heard 'The War Inside'? God. This song I swear.

I was a bit astonished when I saw this song wasn't on the Best Yet. Such a great, catchy song with deeper meaning in the lyrics.
They play this song even better live!

This should be number 1, then Afterlife.

I was truly gone when I heard this song. Awesome, Jon Foreman!

This song have teaching me more of life

8Your Love Is a Song

How you doing? This song is the best ever. If anyone who has logged into this page and hadn't heard this song, it's my earnest request that you do. Dare you to move and the others which are up there, you won't feel to listen to them ever after hearing this landmark of a song.

Are you all kidding me? This is their best song, no second thought on that. This song is not just a good Switchfoot song, but this is a great song by any standard. This song got me hooked to Switchfoot to a point that even if they make Justin Bieber type of songs, I will still love them like hell!. Switchfoot rocks.

I wonder how even 'Stars' overleaped this song. This song should be at #2 after 'Dare You To Move'. And if it were not for the fact that I've over-listened to this song, I think it would still be #1 on my Top 10 list. This song is deep, people.. visit an otolaryngologist for an ear examination and then listen to this song again.

You are kidding me right now! This should be at the top with "Dare you to move".

When you already know what you who you want to be in your life, but just can't muster the courage to jump off the familiar and safe cliff, listen to this song.
