Best John Mayer Songs

The Top Ten

1 Slow Dancing in a Burning Room Slow Dancing in a Burning Room Cover Art

It is so beautiful and true, it almost makes me cry.

You can feel the emotion and the pain in his voice, and I think that everyone can feel it in his or her heart.

This song isn't only the best song of John Mayer, it's the best song in my life!

This song reminds me of my old self so I believe that it's the best song from John Mayer; I've never heard a better song from all new artists.

With sincere lyrics and a beautiful melody, this blue oriented master piece is easily the best Mayer song. It conveys love, soul and pain in a melodic heartbreaking, yet romantic, ballad.

This song is simply the best ever. It describes a relationship, that's falling apart, so beautifully, it makes you numb as you go deeper and deeper into the lyrics. And to match the lyrics, there's this beautiful mellowing guitar in the background. Robbie McIntosh really fills a lot in the song. And to pair with it, there's John's voice that's like an echo in itself. Literally sends shivers down the spine. Truly the best.

2 Your Body is a Wonderland Your Body is a Wonderland Cover Art

One of the best songs I've heard lately. Great stuff by Mayer

It's so relaxing and yeah, chicks do dig this song. The lyrics are just amazing!

It makes girls feel appreciated.. Aside from the good vibe of the beat of the song.. The lyrics are sincere and not too shaggy...

Alright yeah let us be honest, this song is just fun and so easy to love. It is catchy and light, and for some odd reason I was against liking at first, probably because it's meaning made me stand-offish when I was younger, but now I cannot get enough of it!

3 Gravity Gravity Cover Art

This song is amazing. Not only does John do good, but the whole band too.

Gravity makes me feel that everyone can change gravity forever.

This is the track that made me fall in love with Mayer. The beginning of it is absolutely gorgeous along with the rest of the song. The guitar solo toward the end is pure talent. Love Mayer.

This is my most favourite song. Out of all the artists I listen to, this one track makes me feel the most. The guitar and the entire intro is absolutely phenomenal and the lyrics, and Mayer's ability to tell a story in so little time is incredible. The very last bit "Keep me where the light is" speaks absolute volumes.

4 Half of My Heart Half of My Heart Cover Art

New song...will go up as more and more people hear it. it really should crack the top 5 in a few months

Great song... Hearing it makes me feel happy... Can't stop listening to it...

Just can't get enough... Music is beautiful.. Simply adore
Or in other words... Can't stop loving you

Reasons for making this number 1 instead of 2

1)John Mayer's Voice is Magical. He just have to make a girl listen to him and she is him's.

2)Lyrics are Awesome.. We just like beats and tunes but words have greater significance.
I like it how he expresses that he may not love the girl forever etc.

3) There's Taylor Swift in here. Figure her out if you haven't.

So Now Please make it number 1 by Voting and Vote my comment too.

6 Say Say Cover Art

this song is incredible and should be what we all live by. I even taught it to my friends so we all sing it whenever were about to fall asleep.

Say what you need to say!
John has a voice so drowsy and at the same time light and happy that its, its, words can't explain the feeling

Amazing vocals, even more amazing guitar, it's just the perfect song
It's all true, anyone should say what they need to say

This is my all time favorite song. The music and the lyrics just talk for themselves. Maybe in 10 or 15 years, when I'll hear this song again I'll think of the amazing times I spent when I was 14-15-16 years old, when Say by John Mayer was my favorite song..

7 Daughters Daughters Cover Art

The lyrics combined with the chord progression evokes emotion like no other song I know.

This song got me hooked. Beautiful lyrics that a lot of you would find very meaningful if you give it a listen. Still to this day, sometimes I tear up when I listen to it!

This song made me give John a second listen. Now, I'm hooked. He has Stevie Ray going on with a great voice and inspired lyrics. Who could not love this and be moved by it?

Beautiful song. Deserves a better rank definitely. ^_^

That top ten list is not complete without this song, in fact, it deserves to be right there at the top, any spot less than that is injustice. Period!

How can this song not be number 1?! Listening to it just makes me feel like nothing else. What he says is true love. You just feel how sexy he is.

Its a real heartwarming song.
This is the best song I have come across.
This one deserves a place in the top 5
Top 10 would be undermining the quality of this song.

This song makes my heart ache in a good way... like I'm floating/tumbling through the motions of falling in love.

This is a very meaningful song in my view.
Got to be in top list.

This song is without a doubt one the greatest songs, and the lyrics are incredible
It never get's old. A breath taking

The others are great but this is his masterpiece

Timeless. This is the song that ultimately defines John Mayer-- soft guitar rifts, meaningful lyrics, awesome voice

12 Stop This Train Stop This Train Cover Art

Possibly his most underrated song.. the meaning behind this song is so passionate and meaningful, speaking volumes about the harsh reality of growing older

How is this way down here, really :/? This song is amazing, just listen

Great song. I believe one of the best song of john mayer. Very good lyrics and very good tune. Love this song.

Just beautiful.. Makes you appreciate and fear time.. Love that part about the numbers game and his old man.

Unbelievable! This one deserves much more higher place than 52..at least should be up there in top 5.

A song that takes our love for John Mayer to the next level.

Absolutely love dear marie, beautifully reminiscent

Best song by John Mayer... Love it

This song deserves a better rank, you guys must listen it!

Inspiring and a surprisingly good upbeat

This song is incredibly well written and I can relate to it so much. John mayer absolutely speaks for me. (Pun intended ;))

15 The Heart of Life The Heart of Life Cover Art

Amazing song, the Lyrics are great. Favorite John Mayer Song, highly inspirational

Such beautiful lyrics. This song has a really great meaning behind it, definitely my favorite Mayer song.

This song takes me to the stars...

How is this song way down here?! It is so sweet and kind of mellow in a refreshing way- plus the sharp vocals have some inspirational lyrics behind them.

16 Free Fallin'

John Mayer is at least a damn good musician and songwriter. One Direction are just bricks in a puzzle with no other´╗┐ talent than singing, like Bieber and Rihanna

It isn't often that the cover is better than the original.. But John Mayer completely gives Tom Petty a run for his money!

Takes a completely different spin on a great song. Had numerous moments listening to this cover version and just feeling pure bliss

This is my ultimate John Mayer song even if it is a cover, he transforms it completely and makes it one of his own!

17 St. Patrick's Day St. Patrick's Day Cover Art

The music is composed at a masterful level with lyrics/story that is equally impressive! A must-listen for those who want a new experience!

WHAT? This should be on the 10 list! This is probably one of the saddest song ever been, oh man what is wrong with you.

Just check out the lyrics and try not to cry

18 In Your Atmosphere In Your Atmosphere Cover Art

This is undoubtedly my absolute favourite song I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. I get chills every time I listen to it and always just have to take a minute to appreciate the depth and emotion it possesses musically and lyrically. I have been able to relate to this song in so many of my life experiences and it has brought me to tears more than any other song I have ever heard. Clearly I believe this song deserves the #1 spot, but John Mayer is such a brilliant songwriter and musician that I am quite in love with so many of his songs and am not upset about 19 songs being ahead of this one in terms of popularity.

Best Mayer song ever! Amazing lyrics and vocals. My favourite from live in LA. My top 5 would be: 1- In Your Atmosphere, 2- Neon (live in la), 3- Gravity, 4- Split Screen Sadness, 5- Stop This Train. So make this higher! Way better than the new country stuff he's into at the moment.

His best song by far. Shouldn't be at 37! Come on people! Amazing guitar and vocals once again. "I'm gonna steer clear, burn up in your atmosphere"

Absolutely amazed that this song isn't ranked higher. The guitar in this song is fantastic, and I don't think I have ever heard John sing better than on this song.

What adds to the charm of this song (for me), is the fact that it hasn't been released on a studio album. He wrote it in the tourbus. Well, if In Your Atmosphere is a leftover song, I can't even imagine what kind of other masterpieces he has written in his tourbus.

19 No Such Thing No Such Thing Cover Art

This song is easily top 3

This is where I fell on love with John Mayer.

Easily top ten

I wanna scream at the top of my lungs because this should be waaay higher

20 In the Blood In the Blood Cover Art

Great build up to a wonderful theme that keeps evolving, giving us a truly masterful vocal melody that is one of the greatest highways any singer would love to navigate.
In 30 years we will see 'In the blood' as John's greatest contribution to our popular culture.
Definitely one of his greatest compositions!

Straight up best song ever

Touched my soul. Need to go find more of his music.

This one is one of the best John Mayer tracks. This albumn requires more than just a one listen. The best John Mayer album is Continuum but believe me after that The Search For Everything is so deep. And this one is the best song. but is underrated

21 Love Is a Verb Love Is a Verb Cover Art

So relaxing and chilled

22 New Light New Light Cover Art

It's new but the tunes are so soothing and mesmerizing. This song brings me joy.

If u don't listen to John Mayer we can't be friends

23 My Stupid Mouth My Stupid Mouth Cover Art

The best song of John Mayer. It just reflects all of the cause of each arguments out there. Well, no all but some of them. The lyrics are great too. And so is his guitar.

24 Who Says Who Says Cover Art

This song is really a nice one... The soft melodious guitar chords with a low heavy voice.. Composed of soft pitches... Evenly distributed.. It's a perfect song.

Very nyc song... Deserves to be higher

Such a beautiful tempo and melody throughtout the entire song not to mention the peaceful voice of John Mayer and it's just so relaxing you get lost in the words of the song as if you are being hypnotized

Should be higher in the list... When you are alone and listen to this, it makes the loneliness so beautiful...

25 83 83 Cover Art

Along with "3x5", this song has more spins on my iTunes than "No Such Thing" and is probably the best song on Room For Squares.
