The Top Ten

Let Her Go
In early 2013, the song broke through in Europe and Oceania, reaching number-one in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland, making Passenger's first international success


The first time I heard Mike Rosenberg's voice, I was like, "Hey, is this a joke? ".
That would be the most, THE most, regretful statement I've made with respect to music. When I heard the full song, oh... it was beautiful.
I HAD to vote "Let Her Go" It's so beautiful. And his voice is so honest and innocent. This is on my list of 'Songs You Would Play On A Loop'. Just such a lovely song. You're right to crown this gem.


[Newest]Just love it... Only need the light when it's burning low. Only miss the sun when it starts to snow... To b honest.. Legendary song

4Staring at the Stars
It sounds kind of silly but then you listen to the acoustic version and you want to cRY it's so beautiful. "who needs love when you've got silicone and strap-ons? "
Full with meaning, it's a powerful satire, with a feeling of mockery and irony. Beautiful song with great lyrics, best of the album

19Riding to New York
Wow, Mike has made some pretty emotional songs over the years but none top this, got me right in the feels from the first verse and is THE highlight of Whispers. The songs tells the story of an old man who is slowly dieing from smoking and is going to ride across the US to see his family one last time in New York. Definitely listen to this, while it isn't as catchy or relatable as songs like Staring at the Stars, Holes and Whispers it is one of his best. Great job as always Mike!
