Best Blue October Songs


The Top Ten

1 Hate Me

Also from Foiled, this songs just makes you wanna cry. And I am guy whose favorite artist is Eminem and favorite new metal band is bullet for my valentine

Amazing song that should definitely be their #1. I love "Into the Ocean," but "Hate Me" breaks me down every time I listen to it. The meaning of the song is so deep and powerful that anyone that has had a hard time before can relate to it. The way the music flows with the lyrics is simply amazing, and the emotional way it is song is enough for anyone to cry.

You honestly have to of went through something to understand this song. My mom waiting up for me to come home when I sometimes wouldn't. This song hit my heart with so much impact. I've been sober for 10 years, so people now have no idea. Most people love the concept when explained to them. This song is just amazing.

"...and then I saw your blue eyes cry, and I held your face in my hands. Then I fell down yelling, 'Make it go away! ' Just take a smile, look back and shine, just like it used to be. And then she whispered, 'How can you do this to me..? '.."

This lyric alone is enough to make a grown man cry.

2 Into the Ocean

I can't really choose my "#1" song but I think it should be this one because it's their most well known songs (as far as radio plays go) - and from their best album, Foiled

I LOVE HIS SONG SO MUCH! Listened to it in the third grade and still addicted and I'm 16 now

This is my favorite song of all time. It's a song I can listen to constantly & never get sick of it. The lyrics really speak to me.

I love this song so much I listen to it everyday it should be number 1

3 Calling You

There is just something about this song, but every time I hear it, it just makes you feel good and think about that special someone in your life...

This is me and my boyfriends song

Love this song!

4 Overweight

This song has such a catchy, unique, raw sound, and it captures the intensity of youth so well. Some of the best lyrics too... "trade rules, switch side for your beautiful eyes/let him be you through your beautiful cries/let him hold you up so you can touch affordable skies"... "pull my hair back, look me in the eye/there's a self-destructive meaning in the bleeding of a guy/it's the guilt of what reality is giving me/making sense of all mistakes and my stupidity". SO GOOD.

Just a fabulous song, nice beat, better vocals.

5 Congratulations

This is the first song of Blue October I've heard - and I will listen to them more often now that they have captured my heart.
" I want to give you something
I've been wanting to give to you for years
My heart"
Simply amazing!

"My heart, my pain won't cover up,
You left me"
Everyone who experienced unrequited love will be able to relate to this song. This song is the anthem of unrequited love.

6 Sound of Pulling Heaven Down

The build-up is awesome. As the music slowly picks up you really feel the energy

7 She's My Ride Home

I honestly think that if you strip this song down, it doesn't get more romantic than this. It's our wedding song. We've been together for years, know eachother for almost a decade and I can't actually think of a better song than this for our wedding song.

8 Jump Rope

God I haven't listened to this song in years. Its still hard to at times. She loved this song, and her look on life was exactly this. Life is a Jump Rope people.

9 Say It

' So I give you my coldest shoulder! '

What? 19th place? People, you should listen this. This song is genius! And it helps so much when I'm angry. I scream and say 'I don't wanna hear you say, say, say, say, say, say it! "
Now, vote for it!

A great song Must Hear...

10 18th Floor Balcony

This song cemented my love for Blue October. My wife and I heard it live for the first time and we used it as our wedding song!

One of his most amazing songs ever. Heartbreaking If you can relate.

Very beautiful song! From abidjan

The Contenders

11 The Worry List

This song should be in top ten at the least. The song tells his story of losin his baby girl, Blue. But it's so easy to relate to. It got me through some tough times with my crush.

This song makes me cry almost every time I hear it. Really hits home for me. "I know that God exists, I held her in my arms."

One of the few songs that actually has the ability to make me cry. Such a beautiful song.

12 Fear

I absolutely love this song. Its about not letting fear, and how it might make your life hard, but you have to take control your life.

This song is for everyone, including u and me, who are struggling to face our own world. Sometimes a probably will be accepted as a rubbish by someone but will be seen as a giant monster by another one. This song comes to help a little bit or more. Love this song so much

This track is one of my favorite from sway...

Love it. The beat, the message, just simply love it.

13 You Make Me Smile
14 Bleed Out

This song has been my anthem for a couple years now and helped me get the courage to leave an abusive relationship. I get goosebumps every time I hear it, no matter how many times I hear it. It's definitely in my top 5 fave Blue October songs and I think the instrumentals and lyrics are some of their very best.

Such a beautiful song - the acoustic is fantastic. I just got dumped after a two year relationship where I gave the girl absolutely everything, and this song is getting me through it. Thank you, BO, for writing such heartfelt lyrics.

An amazing depiction of inner pain and learning to grow from tragedy. Almost tearful.
It's hard to have a 'top 10' for a band so amazing.

This is an amazing song, it's beautiful

15 Dirt Room

This song is fantastic! Definitely should be up there

My new favourite Blue October song

19 Light You Up

This is a Stunning song. I really do appreciate Justin's (lead vocalist) voice in all of his songs. His passion is different in each individual song.

Most amazing song, in my opinion, especially the live version(s).

This song makes my top 5

20 My Never

I am sure it will be in top 3

21 Come in Closer
22 Weight of the World

Every one should listen to this song! The live version is so Amazing! , "don't bother trusting, don't bother waiting, don't bother changing things that wont get into changing... Just let me ho away.."

All of their songs are the BEST. Hands down.

I can't NOT include this song. Especially the live version from Argue with a Tree, the studio version from approaching normal is.. Meh too quiet; not as powerful as they are live

23 X Amount of Words

Love the drum work in this one

Its like poetic dance music

Best song live. Period

24 The End

So gritty and hardcore. This is as deep and emotional as it gets.

My favorite song ever, so powerful, so amazing. 100% love.

26 Everlasting Friend

This song deserve to be in the top ten

27 Black Orchid

This song is full of feelings, I really love it. I love Justins voice!

28 Any Man In America

This song and his explanation are just too powerful to pass up. You can understand a lot about him just by listening to this track.

29 For My Brother

I've been listening to Blue October lately and yesterday I stumbled upon this song. The violin is amazing and the lyrics are just.. Breathtaking! Seriously everyone should listen to this. I honestly cried when I listened to it.. Thank you blue october :)
'and I sing for my brother who keeps me sane and tells me everything will be ok.'

30 The Follow Through

This song is brilliant, the vocals are powerful!

31 Sway
32 Picking Up the Pieces

This song is amazing. It's touching, and a little bit different from what you'd expect. It's beautifully written and addicting.

33 Breakfast After Ten

Best song hands down. I have everyone from my dad to my stepson loving it. "Your not the one with all the problems you're the one with all the pride"

Has been my favorite song since 2011. No bullcrap, right to the point.

34 Independently Happy
35 For the Love

This song is from their 2011 album, Any Man in America. While a lot of Blue's songs are sad/depressing (masterpieces but sad), this one is a song of getting back up, similar to been down (but without the relationship angle) This song reminds me daily why I do those daily things I don't want to do, but are good for me. Its inspirational. When everything else is gone this song reminds you why to go on.

36 The Answer

Again another tear-jerker, but from their 2nd album, Consent To Treatment (2000)

37 Drop
38 Schizophrenia

This song maybe better than drop, I'm not sure.

39 Drilled a Wire Through My Cheek

This song borders on metal. Very powerful, but emotionally, it pales in comparison to any of the top 4

40 What If We Could
41 Razorblade
42 The Flight

Song about a man whos girlfriend took his kid and married someone else Blue octobers best song

43 Drama Everything
44 Debris
45 A Quiet Mind

This song is special, you can feel his pain along the lines

46 Sexual Powertrip (One Big Lie) Bla Bla
47 Amnesia

Their best song! Period!

48 Voice of a Friend

Man it just touches the soul. Words and music. Amazing!

49 Things We Do at Night

This song is stunning. Starts slow, then tempo goes a little faster. The song commands my full attention whenever it plays.
