Best Explosions In the Sky Songs

This is an interactive top ten list for the best songs from the Austin based post-rock band, Explosions in the Sky.

The Top TenXW

1Your Hand In Mine

The whole song is just beautiful. It's hopeful melancholy... Or maybe melancholic hope. Few songs make you feel wondrous joy and pitch black depression like this one does. - Hurricane1123

No words to describe this song's beauty. The melancholy is enough to make you cry. But those are tears of joy

I'm in love with this piece of art.

2The Only Moment We Were Alone

Beautiful song with a slow build up that climaxes in a wonderful 45 second chorus at around the 6:30 mark. - Hurricane1123

3The Birth and Death of the Day

The intense drums that surface at the chorus of the song and then the quiet tapping of the drumsticks after the chorus are definitely a treat to listen to. - Hurricane1123

4First Breath After Coma

How can you not vote this as the best one. You feel yourself slip away for just a minute as the song begins to fade away. As the melody fades, you fade or you dream of some moment in your life fade away. Simply beautiful. Just dream and you'll feel it. Guaranteed.

Great music with the highlight being the last minute of the song as the instruments begin to fade behind the mega guitar riff. - Hurricane1123

This song understands how my brain and heart work

6Postcard From 1952

Amazing song, at 3:41 to the end mind-blowing stuff happens. Giver a listen and bask in the wonders of life.

This song is just so wonderful. I fall asleep to it so often. It begins so gently, building subtly until it grows into a melodic dream. I'm not even being poetic when I say it makes my heart feel warm; it really makes me happy.
