Best John Mayer Songs

Wish I found someone who sings this song as good as John one day

A Song I would sing for my wife the day I get married

42 Split Screen Sadness Split Screen Sadness

I don't know how this isn't in the top ten. Also In Your Atmosphere should be higher. I love this song. It talks about two people who break up and see other people but on the inside they're actually miserable. Its spilt screen saddness because its hard for both of them. "Two wrongs make it all alright tonight"-this is saying that the two people are spending the night with the wrong people. They actually miss each other but don't know it yet. Vote for this song!

Even though #43 on this chart, this song holds a #2 spot in my heart (behind only "In Your Atmosphere"). In my opinion, this is the John Mayer song with the most lyrical depth. Just an absolutely beautiful and brilliantly-written song.

Hands down one of Mayer's best songs

The bridge in this song is great. - Bman23

43 Covered In Rain Covered In Rain


Heard it for the first time today. Blown away! I thought I had already listened to all of Mayer's best songs and then Covered in Rain happened

Brilliant vocals, great guitar solo, beautiful lyrics and a terrific song overall

Amazing song. Definitely underrated

44 Back to You Back to You

Back to you
It always comes around
Back to you
I tried to forget you
I tried to stay away
But it's too late - oliver_ray

Back to me,
It always comes around,
Back to me,
Doesn't it scare you? Your will's not as strong as it used to be

Such a good song doesn't deserve to be this far down the list..

John Mayer's best as a songwriter. He really brings out emotion with this one and sings it with so much soul and emotion.

46 Friends, Lovers or Nothing Friends, Lovers or Nothing

How is this missing on the top 10? Beautiful song. A *Must* hear.

47 Comfortable Comfortable

Every single one of you who says "Your Body Is A Wonderland" is the best John Mayer song (which is a joke) seriously need to drop everything right this very minute and listen to Comfortable. This song is nothing but an emotional roller coaster from beginning to end. It captures the simple moments of a happy relationship perfectly. Please, for your own sake, listen to this song.

Those who didn't hear this song please do so to make yourself feel like a loser for callin yourselves john mayer fans and not listening to his best song

Why no one add this song to the list? This song is the best!

I love this song, criminally underrated

Deserves a much higher rank, one of his best songs. The lyrics and music are just beyond perfect... If you've never heard it I would 100% recommend you do right now (especially the acoustic version)

Listen to the guitar solo. And the lyrics for that matter.

"I believe that my life's gonna see the love I give return to me" amazing song with an amazing solo to match

51 Do You Know Me Do You Know Me

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.

53 Another Kind of Green Another Kind of Green

His best! Interesting structure, nice tempo changes, great guitar playing. And steve rocks.

Great guitar playing arguably his best hendrix-style rhythm guitar he has written

54 Man On the Side Man On the Side

This is simply one of John's best songs, unbelievable guitar brilliance alongside breath taking singing, John Sings his heart out in the live version from " Any Given Thursday"
