Best Childish Gambino Songs

Donald Glover is a writer, actor, comedian, and rapper (just to name a few.) His popularity is increasing as word spreads about how insanely talented he is. I made this list because I feel there are a lot of people who care about his music like me, and his music deserves to be discussed. The order is definitely up for debate.

The Top Ten

1 3005 3005 Cover Art

This entire song has so much heart, and is both lyrically and stylistically miles ahead of Freaks and Geeks

Very catchy, easily one of his top 3 songs.

Great song, bass is amazing with some good headphones.

Awesome song favorite by far!

2 Freaks and Geeks Freaks and Geeks Cover Art

I love this song it inspired me very much

Uncountable quality puns and clever references. One of my favorites

This song gives you a boost of energy the size of a car. His lyrics are so amazing and this song introduced the most clever lyricist of the past decade.

Amazing song. Needs for recognition. Pumps you up

3 Sweatpants Sweatpants Cover Art

My favorite. Too addicting after listening to it a couple times.

Some of his best lines are in this jam! One of my all-time favorites!

Great song, Great Lyrics, definitely in the Top Ten

I LOVE this song, it becomes addicting

4 Bonfire Bonfire Cover Art

From Camp. Others would say that this should be higher; I don't think he really tells a good story in this one, just raps about his love for women with with jokes thrown in. Though there's no denying the effect that his Casey Anthony line can have on anyone and everyone who listens to it.

First one I heard and still the best in my opinion. High energy, great punch lines, gym mix perfection. Good music. #1

Just found this song somehow but great song

This hits really hard. It's spooky and gives nice spooky vibes which suit this song so well. Childish Gambino is awesome and this song rocks. 6/5

5 Redbone Redbone Cover Art

This is one of my favorite songs of all time, the vibe it gives is one of those special feelings you can't describe. His voice is amazing, especially when you realise no voice pitching is used. It's a perfect mix between rock, rnb and soul. This is what proves to me just how multi-talented Gambino is. You can listen to This is America for the lyrics, sweatpants for the hard beat and flow, sober for the simplistic summery piano ballad and to this for literally a soultrip

Very experimental track with nice Funk elements and bouncy production. It's definitely an earworm on first listen. Awaken My Love is a fantastic record and this, California, Boogieman, Riot, Terrified and The Night I Met Your Mama are the highlights for me.

This one is the best or am I completely wrong?

The funk gets me every time

6 Sober Sober Cover Art

Gambino dazzles me every time with this song. Watch the video... He kills the dancing! He also nails it singing-wise and I really think this shows how good of a singer he is.

A slow, smooth song that still fits gambino's style

Been a Gambino fan forever, but this song is #1

Everything about this song makes it his best.

7 Me and Your Mama Me and Your Mama Cover Art

Just as good as redbone if not better. Childish Gambino really shows how vocally talented he is in this song

This rocks unlike most of his other songs. His screaming chorus is just chilling.

Awaken my love is one of the best if not the best album of the decade and this was maybe the the best song

The screaming is tense and emotional

8 Telegraph Ave

This song is just a whole other feeling. My favorite of all time.

One of his best songs that people don't know. great song to cruise to at night

Best late night drive song

By fair the best song on Because The Internet.

9 Heartbeat Heartbeat Cover Art

Even people who don't listen to Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) know this song...

The first song I ever heard by Gambino and the only thing I will ever thank Vevo for! every time this comes up a party and people are like "what is this crap? " I just guard the stereo until this song finishes, singing along the whole time!

This song is amazing in how intense and sincere it feels. Not to mention the ending which is hilarious

Personally think this is his best

10 The Worst Guys

This song has a mad beat and childish also spits a few bars at quick pace, it also has some hilarious punch lines. It includes my other favourite rapper, chance the rapper.

Favorite song of all time

All she needed was some...

All she needed was some...

More Chance and Gambino collabs, or an entire album.

The Contenders

11 Break (AOTL)

Look up the remix with kendrick and hopsin! So dope!

bop and nice music

12 That Power That Power Cover Art

This song is a good example of why Childish Gambino is my favorite rapper, period. He can add musically amazing beats behind his rap, he can sing, and in this song, he can even just sort of tell a story and the song is great.

Just a beast song, best outro ever. Ties up the album perfectly! Good lyrically but that beat is next level!

The first part of the song is great all by itself, but the outro/story at the end ties the whole Camp album together.

How many gold plaques you want inside your dining room?
I said, “I want a full house”
They said, "You got it dude! "

13 This Is America This Is America Cover Art

My favorite video of 2018

Extremely good rap and it has a great hidden message if you look closely

Contraband contraband contraband

14 Outside Outside Cover Art

Seriously guys, the meaning of this song, the one-liners, the wit, just Oh my god, the whole thing is perfect. Donald

From Camp. Tells the story of his childhood, growing up the only black kid in his school, or the whitest black kid in his other school. Amazing chorus that really sets the tone for his whole album.

"He's saving up so we can get our own place
In the projects, man that sounds fancy to me
They called me fat nose, my mom say you handsome to me. "

15 U Don't Have to Call

Very different song, but that can be said about every song on this mixtape. Really shows off Gambino's vocals.

16 Flight of the Navigator Flight of the Navigator Cover Art

This song is just amazing. Should be top 10

Literally one of my favorite songs, it should be way way higher

Probably his most underrated song ever. It is so beautiful

Really shows Gambino's versatility as an artist

17 All Yall
18 Oakland Oakland Cover Art

This song was already posted as it's real title "Telegraph ave." dumbass

19 Retro Retro Cover Art

The beat of this one is killer; reminds me of some 8-bit arcade games mixed with beautiful piano music. At the same time, this is one of the easiest to listen to as it's quite smooth and relaxing, with great lyrics.

Chill af

20 Lights Turned On

Gambino's most under-appreciated song, if you ask me. Fantastic lyrics, incredible production. He absolutely killed it. I wish I could listen to it for the first time again.

Awesome beat, raichu reference.

Dope beat, sick flow

Great song, nice beat, awesome lyrics

21 Black Faces
22 You See Me You See Me Cover Art

Best song by far. The word play is on another level.

Good beat
Good wordplay
Good song

Its great

23 Assassins

Off sick boi, this song has a great beat, and gambino delivers a great verse. His fellow Derrick comedy member nick Packard has the best verse on the entire album

24 Crawl

This is the hardest Childish Gambino song, has the greatest lyrics, and is an AWESOME pump up song

This song is a bit strange but 100% in a good way and worth listening too

25 Eat Your Vegetables

Has one of the best beats and the best Lyrics Gambino has ever made

He has this amazing interlude where he make a joke about chris from family guy, and you think he is just rambling, but then he ties it back in to the beat and goes HAM. song is genius with a sick dk beat
