Good transitions, lively beat, quirky lyrics. Awesome song!

lovee, one of my faves! but that list is a pretty big one :)
he needs another album
I feel like saying this is my favorite is kinda wrong, because I like all jack johnson's lyrics. But this rhythm is special anyways.
Amazing. Beautiful. There's no words to describe this song. This is definitely one of Jacky J's best songs.
[Newest]Love this song. Makes me want to lounge in a pool all day

This song is awesome. One of Jack Johnson's greatest. It has a catchy rhythm that combines with some killer lyrics. Definitely 5 stars. I suggest it to any Jack Johnson Fans!
BEST jack johnson song. Fully recommend it
Nice to listen to, chill melody


[Newest]Awesome lyrics! One of my all time favorite song

This song never fails to calm me down, Jack Johnson makes some of the best music I have ever heard!
It would have to be this or 'Crying Shame'.


8Good People
I get very frustrated with the world a lot of the time, with people and get caught up way too much in a lot of the bull in the world.
Sometimes it's hard to explain these feelings eloquently and to do so without confusing others. I feel this song accomplishes that admirably.
So whenever I'm feeling pressured or stressed or even just feeling a bit down and out because evrything's getting a bit too much, I either listen to this or another of Jack's songs which, I feel is discussing a similar if not identical topic in a slightly different manner and tone, and that's "On and On"...
Not only does this realise, everyone in the world is insane, or nasty, greedy or just out to get ahead by any means possible, with no regards for anyone else, and no thought for the future, and how they might be affecting it.
It reminds me that the world is going to crash and burn, but it isn't going to stop me from enjoying my life as well as I can and enjoy what I have with the people I love and cherish :)

Cheers Jack, your a legend.
Fantastic song I would have to say it is understandable it is at this level, because he has so many fantastic songs, but in my humble opinion should be top 10!
One of my favourites for sure, Jack takes all my sorrows away and fills my soul with joy. So much respect for this man's talent.
[Newest]Brilliant song and brilliant voice

I did not even know this song existed until a few weeks ago but now it is almost constantly playing in my room.
I think that this song is amazing, I have always liked it, not only is it the song which you can see ben stiller and jack Johnson together in it, it is catchy and relaxing, I have learnt every single lyric of by heart! The best thing was that he played this song in his concert at Birmingham! Great song!

10Never Know
My favorite of his from the album In Between Dreams.
His most romantic song, just love it, so do the ladies
The melody is perfect, just perfect
This song is amazing! This song is so relaxing. I certainly enjoy this song the most out of all his songs.

The Contenders

11Bubble Toes
Just so much fun. Its said that he wrote this song just by taking up a guitar and singing first thing that came to his mind...
That's like Jack Johnson
It's just such an Original, Fun song! I get so tired of the "canned" songs--the same stuff over and over again. NOT with J Johnson! He's right up there with Dave Mathews on creativity and amazing talent. While Dave is passionate in an intense way, Jack is as passionate but in a mellow, relaxing way. Stirs the heart! Love his music...and his personal style...I am so sad I missed him when he came to SD this year. But I'm gearing up for his next Hawaii concert God willing!
So many amazing jack Johnson songs out there the list never ends but this is my personal favorite
[Newest]The best song in the world

[Newest]Really great song... This song makes me feel calm and cool. Should be at #1!

16If I Had Eyes
Best song off Sleep Through the Static. The song describes drifting apart from a loved one. Jack Johnson is an expert at expressing very real emotions with an almost antithetically pleasant sound.
Should be "same girl" off this album. But this is my favorite album.
This needs to be higher too

17Wasting Time
"I'm just a waste of her energy, and she's just a waste of my time. So why don't we get together? And we could waste everything tonight... "

19Go On
Brings a tear to my eye, every time I hear it, deserves to be way op this list but poeple don't hear much of the sleep through the static album, check it out!
It's great, very mellow and has a great sound to it.


21Losing Keys
This song inspires. They metaphor of losing keys, that everyone does from time to time, makes his ideas and thoughts easily accessible to every listener.

It's one of the best songs he has, If not the best. The lyrics in this song are beautiful and very romantic. Jack Johnson know exactly how to explain what to be in love means.
HOW IS THIS NOT FIRST!? Angel has beautiful lyrics and more soul in this song than in any other in Jack Johnson's list of beautyful songs! You gotta love this masterpiece of the master Johnson!

Truly his best, it is musically and lyrically dynamic with many subtle qualities.


Staple it together and cal it bad weather!


25To the Sea

26Inaudible Melodies
chillest beat ever. especially right after you just burned down some quality green.
Best JJ song ever in my humble opinion. It shows how he evolved as an artist over the years. Wish he could more of these type of songs.

27You and Your Heart
This song is really amazing it should have higher status concidering it was one of the major songs in the album to the sea this song is amazing and it needs more credit.
This is a good one needs to be much higher
One of my faves!

28Traffic in the Sky
#27?! Should at least be in the top 10 one of by favorites by far, just an overall awesome song. The soul that passes whit every word just amazing, and the simplicity of the guitar just make me want to sing this song every day.

You better hope you are not alone. We all will vote to get it top 10

30F-Stop Blues
This song is one of jack johnson's best songs that he he has written and performed. This is definitely in the top ten songs. This is one of the best songs of jack johnson's first album and all so his whole music life. Not only is he one of the best song writers of the erea his was also a surfer and a soccer player. All though better toghter can not be compeared f-stop blues is one of his best.
Beautiful guitar riffs, awesome lyrics.. best song ever but sadly underrated.

31Fortunate Fool
How can this song be so low?

32I Got You
This is a very cute song. Honestly I found it a bit challenging to get used to the pure calmness of Jack Johnson's songs at first as someone used to alternative rock, but this song led me to change my opinion about him. He is indeed a true artist.
So beautiful and simple. The lyrics express everything a relationship should be. The whistling exudes a certain carefree happiness that people feel when they are in love.
Awesome this should in top number

33Sleep Through the Static

34It's All Understood
This should be the #1 song! You fool's!

35Crying Shame
Much more profound and musically diverse when compared to the top ten contenders.


I think this song is very underrated!

So deeply relaxing and peaceful for me. The way his voice ranges!

48Ones and Zeros
It has such a good story and moral to it! Not the best, but should be higher up the list!
