Best Childish Gambino SongsDonald 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
I love this song it inspired me very much
Uncountable quality puns and clever references. One of my favorites
Amazing song. Needs for recognition. Pumps you up
The lyrics are just too realV 5 Comments
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.
I'll be right by your side, till 3005.V 10 Comments
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
Rhymes are so cleverV 7 Comments
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
Simply his best song. Raw lyrics and impeccable storytelling, especially when coupled with the seemingly unrelated video.V 5 Comments
Even people who don't listen to Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) know this song... - danyelle444
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 bestV 3 Comments
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.V 4 Comments
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 song so smooth my neighbour
Look up the remix with kendrick and hopsin! So dope!
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.
From Camp. Personally, I think this is his third best song but I know the support isn't there yet, so I put it at #5. This is my pump-up song before anything important, and it has some of his best one-liners.V 3 Comments
One of his best songs that people don't know. great song to cruise to at night
Best late night drive song
Best song to drive to. Great song overall
Definitely one of his 3 best songs.V 2 Comments
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.
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. "
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.V 1 Comment
This song was already posted as it's real title "Telegraph ave." dumbass
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
(featuring Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul)
My favorite, freaks and geeks after
Bathroom DVR? That's unessacary but this song isn't.
