The Top Ten

Better Together
When I hear the song, I feel much better. I enjoy just listening and don't thinking on. Love it.
I love this song so much! It makes me just so happy! Thanks Jack Johnson, for a song that can cheer me up no matter what
My all time favorite song. It's my family song. Each time it plays my entire family stops and listens and sing along. I have the Cuban version as well. Everything about this song makes us happy.
Gives one joy to be reminded of what is important, and the melody reflects that.

he needs another album
Amazing. Beautiful. There's no words to describe this song. This is definitely one of Jacky J's best songs.
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.
Love this song. Makes me want to lounge in a pool all day

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.
Brilliant song and brilliant voice

The Contenders

11Bubble Toes
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!
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
So many amazing jack Johnson songs out there the list never ends but this is my personal favorite

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

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.

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.
