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]Damn good song. Definitely deserves to be on the top

Great song, great band, love it!
The most beautiful and meaningful. So touching should be on top.
Phenomenal work on the guitar by Mike in this one!

This for me is amazing mike's superb lyrics and beat made me fall in love with this song try it out I'm sure you'll love it

4Things That Stop You Dreaming
Hilarious... meaningful... Great and inspiring...

5Staring 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
My favorite Passenger song!

6Life's for the Living
This song has the lyrics any band might dream of creating... One of the absolute best lyrics and smooth classy tune, very good for soft late night music...
This made me fall in love with passenger music. It blew my mind. Helped me with my career choice. It put me in another place
Nice song with a beautiful meaning. I thought it was so nice I had to share it with my teenage daughter.

7Shape of Love

8All the Little Lights

9What You're Thinking


The Contenders

11Feather On the Clyde


13Fairytales & Firesides
This song is so beautiful! It is sad and hopeful in the same moment. "We long for fairytales and firesides" summarized everything I have ever longed for in one sentence.

14Keep On Walking
Has everyone lost it... ? This is a really great song... I mean, after "let her go" & "holes", this one has to be on top...
For those who haven't heard it...
PLEASE GIVE IT A SHOT... I sure y'all will definitely vote... !

15Golden Leaves

Full of emotions, good lyrics and inspirational beats; should be high up on list, one of my personal faves!
Has to be in the top ten!

17The Last Unicorn
I really love this song

18Patient Love
I've got a pinch of tobacco in my pocket, I'm not going to smoke, I'm not going to smoke it
This is should be in the top 5... So beautiful song

19Heart's On Fire
By far this is his best song could listen to it on repeat all day long
My new favorite song his duet with ed sheeran is amazing best I've ever heard
Just listened to it. It's really nice.
[Newest]Perfect song couldn't be better

20Riding 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!

21Scare Away the Dark
I live the idea of "if we all light up, we can scare away the dark" - beautiful A poet to be sure.
This is what music all about... Classy

22Wicked Man's Rest
Beautiful, but not heard all to often. Listen and be amazed
I love this song

23You're On My Mind

24Walk In the Rain

Absolutely amazing song. Cannot wait for his new album. Builds up slowly and the finish is beautiful
"You see all I need is a whisper in a world that only shouts"
Fine words and thought provoking

26Walk You Home
I have all Passenger's albums and this is the song I keep coming back to
This is such a unique and unbeatable song, it's one of his oldest but it's one of the best.

27Things You've Never Done
Mind blowing. Heart rending stuff!
"... The only failure is never to try..."
So if you are a true passenger fan you would definitely try it out.

28Darkest Days
Most emotional song I ever heard, this should be in the top 3

29Blind Love
An amazing and touching song. It's a really good one though x

30A Thousand Matches

31Rolling Stone
Love all of Mike's songs, but this is a personal favorite from 'Whispers'.

32Romeo & Juliet
Cover From Dire Straits, but I prefer Passengers Cover of the song, new song but should move up the list


34I Hate
