Wicked song their best so far

So catchy and so fun to listen to!

3Step

I've always thought that VW were a good band, but never really connected with what they were doing. It all sounded tight and poppy, but nothing hit me emotionally. I didn't feel it. This song, "Step, " changes that instantly. It blows me away every time.

At first it seemed like an odd song. But the more I listened to it, the song felt more emotional and beautiful. The lyrics also make sense and are very relatable.

Best lyrics they have ever wrote. "Girl" can be related to so many references... Songs, ideas, goals, and yes, girls

Best single of 2014

4Oxford Comma

Who gives a F-- about an oxford comma? :D

I heard first in how I met your mother and now this is my ring tone. kinda different song from others but different mean good

Such an oddly lyrical song. Richard Nixon and UN references randomly thrown in.

Why would you lie about how much coal you have?

Awesome song! So catchy, from the distorted chorus to the very last second, this song is definitely one of the bests of Vampire Weekend

6Giving Up the Gun

The beat of this song is so catchy! And the lyrics are a good match. They don't necessarily go crazy with the pitch or anything, but they do a damn good job with this one.

Seems a bit different than all their other songs, and it works really well! Fantastic lyrics and a very catchy beat to match!

Far and away their best song. It has a cool funky beat and bassline and stays true to Vampire Weekend while also appealing to those who don't like their other stuff.

This song is so col... For my is the best song of Vampire Weekend

This was their opening song when I saw them live and the energy the crowd had was amazing. Everyone was singing along to the extremely catchy lyrics and dancing to the beat and it was an outstanding start to the night! Definitely one of my favorites.

How did you forget this one? This one has a good tune, and should be in here!

It's so powerful and motivates you to dance a crazy dance, I love it.

9Horchata

When I saw this songs name, I freaked out! I love horchata! And I love thi song!

This is an amazing song of theirs! :D I was introduced to them by step and so I started exploring and this song won me over! :D

Dope dope song. Definitely was one of the first of theirs I ever heard and have loved them since

10Hannah Hunt

One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. It's so simple and just amazing. The bridge thing with the drums and piano is the best part

Absolutely wonderful lyrics! I feel this is their best song!

I love the lines in the last verse, "If I can't trust you then damn it Hannah, there's no future, there's no answer.", and "You and me, we've got our own sense of time...", it's just a beautiful song. The end is my favorite part.

Gorgeous song.

Come on! This so is just so invigorating! Definitely should be at least in the top 5!

Hands down. No competition. The best song they have made to date.

Where is this in the top ten!? This song is musical perfection!

"The Holy Roman Empire roots for you." Gives me chills.

Catchy, rhythmic, and Ezra has amazing control over his voice. When I hear this song, and the whole Contra Album I imagine being on an tropical island surrounded by beautiful scenery and blue skies all around. Beautiful. My favourite Vampire Weekend Song (and off my favourite album)

Very underrated. I love it though and it's my favorite. Not A-punk, but still very good.

I LOVE THIS SONG I CAN'T EVEN
It was hard to decide between my favorites though... This one, Diplomat's Son, I Think your a Contra, Diane Young, The Kids Don't Stand a Chance, and Holiday. But this one is awesome so I chose it haha

This song is just amazing! I love it so much. I love the lines- "I'm not excited, but should I be? Is this the future that half the world plans for me? " awesome lines. I also love Hannah Hunt, Oxford Comma, A-Punk, and Giving Up the Gun.

This song is literally amazing! I expected it to be number one on the list. It's so catchy and meaningful, you can't not like Unbelievers. It's one of my favorites.

"Want a little light, but who's going to save a little light for me? ". This song should be at least a top 10! - eugepotra

Unbelievable song. It's really good.

16Ya Hey

God, wow, this song. Such depth, darkness and passion. Captures the essence of pure fervour of religion, nationalism, music, love, whatever and mixes it with the respectful quirkiness of VW. The beauty of this song is that it not only makes immense sense but that it can make different kinds of sense to different kinds of people. Truly one of the music highlights of 2013.

One of the best Vampire Weekend songs ever, ridiculously catchy yet very meaningful. I think it should at the very least be in the top 10. Same with "Step", which is amazing, too.

Means so much to me. BEST and so different than other stuff they do. Catchy and fun
