Best Kid Cudi Songs


The Top Ten

1 Pursuit of Happiness

No matter what mood I'm in, it always puts a smile on my face. This is the only song I can listen over and over and over again

Pursuit of happiness just makes me want to go out there and live life. The raw emotion cudi puts in is extraordinary. Truly makes me happy to listen to this song. Brings back so many memories.

An absolute classic, will always make me happy and bring back more memories than any other song. Deserves the number one spot

This song is so beautiful. The surrealism is to die for. 😉

2 Soundtrack 2 My Life

Man on th Moon II will never come close to this

He is the most real rapper in the game today! Every time Cudi raps he pours his soul into every line. He is someone that a listener can cling on to. I am a fan of every Cudi song ever and I hope his Grammy is on the way!

Best song period, he's super creative and wish it wasn't so hard to pick a best but he definitely killed his track man

Why isn't Scott mescudi vs the world in the top ten?

3 The Prayer

Something that inspires me. Best one of CuDi's songs and actually has a meaning. Recommended.

I love this song. It's so signature of his style with so much meaning and I love how he talks about wanting to leave behind something more than talking about apple bottom jeans and boots with the fur, and then has the day n nite beat play hauntingly in the background at the end. Almost like he hopes people remember him for more than that song

We played this at my 15 year old sons funeral. When we were looking for songs to play at his funeral, my daughter played this for me and even though we were in the middle of a store, I could not stop crying. We played it during his slide show and it just had so much meaning.

I cried

4 Cudi Zone

Amazing song, this was a kids favorite song at my school before he was killed in a car crash. That just gives it so much more meaning.

you truly are in his zone when listening to this song.

Just such a badass song even though its #4 it should be higher!

Beyond the lyrics, the beat carries this song beyond this world.

5 Mr. Rager

Amazing song but impossible to pick the best kid cudi song since id pretty much listen to any of his songs than anyone else because he's the best in the world.

This is the first song I heard from him and I have loved him ever since. I love all of his songs and its hard to pick my favorite one. But I think its safe to say that this song will remain at the top.

The video really gives the song double the meaning-- you can fight all of your battles with whatever you are fighting- but in the end, you will be your own downfall.

I love it - joeorsatti

Such a great song, I listen to this song a couple times per week and it will never get old to me.

6 Day 'N' Nite

always gets everyone dancing!

This song is way better than all the others. It deserves to be up at the top. It's got a really good beat. Did you know that the Crookers Remix of this song got so many more hits then the original?

Excellent song! Puts me in a good mood. Fun to dance slow too.

Love love love

7 Man on the Moon

Greatest song. Just be different like CuDi and look what can happen. He overcomes adversity and shoes that you can do any thing you want no matter what Haters say.

Perhaps the best song made by a new school rapper.

Absolute great heartfelt lyrics.

Great song.

great beat, catchy, means something more than some just jump up and dance type of song, "highly" recommended

8 Just What I Am

"Ain't no such thing as satan, evil is what you make it"
This song is definitely one of my favorites of Kid Cudi! It just has a sort of aroma that just makes anyone and everyone feel good. And for those who are asking if he quit smokin, I heard that this song isn't really about him GETTING high but about him WANTING to get high but expresses how he can't due to wanting custody over his child he has to take drug tests meaning he has to be "clean". Anyways I love this song an it has a lot of good meaning to it: just like all of his music

I hear that Kid Cudi quit smoking weed and then I hear this song come out of no where. WOW! Great song

Chip the Ripper and Kid Cudi always sound great together and this is no exception. Both of them killed it and no matter what mood you're in you can always jam to this one.

This is perfection definitely top 5 - FM25

I Cannot get it out of my head. Nice video, Kid Cudi rocks in it.

My personal favorite.

10 Up, Up and Away

This is the kind of music you can listen to and it makes you happy, he's a amazing rapper/singer/songwriter and the lyrics relate to life. - georgeatkinson

It always cheers me up, when I come home from school, It just makes me happy, no matter what, Its like there's some sort of magic in the song, but anyways, I think this should be the best. :D

This song always gets you in a good mood, And it is pretty catchy.

This should be around number 3 or 4

The Contenders

11 Heart of a Lion

He's saying how strong he is and what he can take on and go through. One of my favorites!

Amazing song, great beat and good lyrics. A Cudi track to pick you up when you're feeling down. Definitely one of his best

This so song is so under rated it's so good really should listen to it. I'm listening to it right now.

Kid Cudis theme song and sounds awesome - chris10_158

Should definitely be in top 10, really shows cudi's passion of marijuana, heck he has angels in the background of the song. Very catchy, memorable, definitely top ten material

Awesome music... I'm in love with this song...

I don't smoke much but I love this song!

Has so much meaning!

Love this song its just so chill

Epic and anthemic. Deserves to be higher

15 Mojo So Dope

After not listening to Cudi for years this song popped in my head one day, that's how dope it is.

Really is his deepest song

The best of Cudi in one song.

This song is Kid Cudi

16 That New New

This is one of my fave songs ever and definitely my fave cudi should be at least top three.

I love this song! It's so original, my favorite Cudi sound. You rarely hear something this quirky.

I love this song. It never gets old.
It doesn't quite have a meaning but it's a good song to listen to to get you pumped for the day ahead

20 Creepers

Brand new but really good, Kid Cudi is like no other rapper. I can't wait to hear future content from him! Keep up the good work!

Relatively new song. If you haven't heard it, LISTEN TO IT. It's short and sweet, deep, and demonstrates Cudi's sophistication in music.

Beat is great but it's his humming that gets me every time

Best beat, good vibe

21 Cudderisback

Best vibe ever! I swear the beat and the lyrics go hand and hand! Kid Cudi I swear is so creative with his beats even though he sampled but come on man... It's so smooth that it makes me wanna bust a move but the beat is so fast and uppity that no rapper with an average flow can rap to this beat. Plus the hook which came from the song Ottoman by Vampire Weekend is so perfectly delivered after with Cudi's verse. Best soft song I've heard. And I'ma bong thugs and harmony fan!

I think this is one of the best, if not the best Cudi tracks ever. The Vampire Weekend sample makes the song sound so happy and the lyrics always make me smile. All around epic tune in my opinion.

22 Embrace the Martian

One of my favorite Kid Cudi songs! The way song makes me feel good, especially when I'm a little buzzed

23 Down & Out

Incredible intro and continuous beat-- a different tempo than most of his songs in the sense that Cudi is more aggressive in his tone of voice and the pace has edge to it. Love it

Crazy beat. Lyrically relatable to anyone. One of the lesser known songs if it is not higher up on this list.

Awesome song! Should be way higher.

Cool song, ok lyrics but definitely worth listening to, unforgettable work

Can't say this song is the best but definitely needs to be up there with soundtrack to my life and persuit of happines. Great song. This and solo dolo should be higher

27 Trapped in My Mind

This is an awesome and has a really dreamy beat makes you think especially if you're kind of an introvert this song can really get to you.

Cudi's song of acceptance- the two albums (Man On The Moon, Man On The Moon II) were both about fighting and the struggles Kid Cudi had to deal with everyday. The closing song of the second album, the finale, explains how "it's not that bad at all".

28 Ashin' Kusher

Smoothest flow ever, awesome beat

29 T.G.I.F.
30 Red Eye

Not really a traditional Cudi track, since he isn't even the lead vocalist on it, but just an incredible and well-produced track all around. Been addicted to this one for a while!

I know it's not a whole lot of Cudi, but its amazing none the less.

31 Solo Dolo

Wow. Ridiculously low, not saying it should be in the top 5 but definitely deserves much higher consideration

Shows his true feelings about his life and how he never feels like he is accepted

Love every thing about this song. And kid cudi... Metaphorical genius! & pretty sexy if I do say so myself... He wouldn't be solo dolo if it was up to me. Kmsl... Love all his tracks though AMAZING!

Whenever Cudi puts his raw emotions into a track it turns out a masterpiece just like this hidden jam.

This song is so underrated, may take more than one listen, but I can't get it out of my head.

I feel this song in my soul

33 Simple As...

Incredibly underrated in my opinion

34 Scott Mescudi vs. The World

The absolute most underrated song by Cudi. Great beat.

35 All Along

Really good to listen to if you are feeling down
I love it so much I could jizz my pants every time I listen to it but I control it and don't and I have to keep typing to post anything for some reason

Definitely a perfect song if you're in the right mood

36 Teleport 2 Me

This song just makes you feel good as if you are in another world relaxed and no worries in life definitely in my opinion needs to be in the top because it's a different sound coming from Cudi!

Usually don't like Cudi singing but this just is amazing. He did a stellar job on this song and definitely a good sound for Cudi.

Laugh out loud whole song isn't out but it is definitely in the top 20 already

The best... It just leaves a feeling for single peeps!
