Best John Mayer Songs


The Top Ten

1 Slow Dancing in a Burning Room Slow Dancing in a Burning Room

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.

Right in the feels

This song is amazing. Not only does John do good, but the whole band too. - Bman23

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.

The guitar. the beat. his voice. the lyrics. everything about this song is amazing

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. ^_^

I'm a guy and I'd like to dedicate this beautiful song to every girl reading this who have had issues with their dad and wish each one of them a better life in future

7 Waiting on the World to Change Waiting on the World to Change

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

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

The others are great but this is his masterpiece

9 Say Say

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

Simple and inspirational at the same time

? I Don't Trust Myself (With Loving You) I Don't Trust Myself (With Loving You)

Definitely should be up there with the best of Mayer, in my opinion top 5. One of my favorite songs of all time.

I cannot stop listening to this. It's been like 3 weeks and I've listened to it almost every day. One of those things that won't and can't get old.

Can not believe it is not in top 50. Not mentioning that it is a top 20 material for sure!

How is this song, this low!
It should have tied with Slow Dancing In a Burning Room at No. 1

Easily his best song. Each verse has a slightly different tune, and the music complements his voice perfectly. Huge variety of tunes.

This song is absolutely beautiful. John's voice sounds amazing.

This has got to be his best song! Got a GREAT beat. Really glad I found it as I looked through his songs.

Undoubtedly his best song! Amazing vocals and music

13 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 - Daniel_Scott1

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

Probably Mayer's most soulful track. Great lyrics which are quite vague but can be seen as being written about Paparazzi who are looking to get something out of Mayer to make headlines when he just wants to make good music - Daniel_Scott1

This needs to be at least at the top 10 Continuum is his best album and this is one of the best it gets stuck in my head and and John's falsetto is amazing

Such an amazing song, has a great vibe and he really shows his range and how it so easy for him tossing both high and low, love the music too!

John's greatest song of all time. Very feel good song. The guitar is flawless in this gem.

15 Edge of Desire Edge of Desire

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.

16 No Such Thing No Such Thing

This is where I fell on love with John Mayer.

"I wanna run through the halls of my high school
I wanna scream at the top of my lungs."
How could this not be on the top 3? This was the soundtrack of my childhood!

17 Bigger Than My Body Bigger Than My Body

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

Inspiring and a surprisingly good upbeat

18 Belief Belief

One of the greatest political songs of the past 10 years.

Awesome riff, kinda bluesy, can't wait for the Born and Raised Tour

Oh come on! This is the best song ever!

19 In Your Atmosphere In Your Atmosphere

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"

This song is amazing, one of the best songs by one of the best singers

20 The Heart of Life The Heart of Life

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.

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.

This is such a beautiful song.
Placed 19th! Such a shame
For me this one definitely tops the list!
