Best Of Monsters and Men Songs


The Top Ten

1 Little Talks

Brilliant song! And CBro7 you should listen to their other songs before speaking - wolphert

I agree with this list completely. Nice work. I am not sure they can make a song better than Little Talks.

I've tried finding this song for over four years, and it is my favorite.

I know it's cliché to choose the most popular song as an group's best song, but wow they really blew this one out of the water. I love how OMAM is able to put a story into every song and how there is always always a deeper meaning. This was the first song I heard by them and I completely fell in love with this group. That was over five years ago and I am still in love with the song and the meaning behind it. If I saw them live I'm pretty sure I'd cry. Everyone I've shown this song to has completely fallen in love with it like I have. Great job and keep up the good work!

I really love this song. It reminds me of years when I live ranch.

This song doesn't get old for me, it just makes me wanna go jump into the lake and have the time of my life!

3 King and Lionheart

This song is truly a representative of beauty and happiness. It is the essential dose of "musical drug" we need in our daily lives. You wont regret downloading this song.

In my humble opinion King and Lionheart is better than Little Talks, it's simply beautiful and it has got something... magical :3

I Love the tune, love the instrumental and vocal lines

I love the story that it tells.

I think that the pure story element of this song makes it lovely. It's passionate, and beautiful, and mysterious. One of my all time favorites.

Beautiful song, reminds me of the hobbit movies for some reason

This song should be in first place, not fourth. It's so beautiful and a song you'll never get tired of listening to.

Best song literally ever

Amazing song, probably my favorite on My Head is an Animal

Perfect song, which gets only better as it goes

Absolutely incredible, the beat is intense. The whole thing is great, but the best part is when Nanna comes in towards the end, absolutely beautiful transition

Brilliant that's ill I've got

SO AMAZING, definitely underrated

Underrated song, my absolute favourate

8 Crystals

This song inspired me to write a whole novel. It's powerful, strong and incredibly deep, and it's one of the few that has made me ever cry. No song will be more special to me than Crystals.

Such a beautiful song. It's pretty much brand new, yet every time I hear it, I feel great and happy and... uplifted. Like any OMAM song. Sure, it's a bit hard to warm up to the video, but after listening to it for a while, you don't mind. I say this one should move right up there to Little Talks, which is the only OMAM song I got tired of. :) (Note: I feel guilty for pushing Sinking Man down on this list. Also a favourite. )

It's a pretty new song, but it's honestly really, really good and deserves to be in the top 5!

Great song

This song deserves to be in the top 5. The music is so beautiful and lyrics are so deep. It's my favourite song from the band

Why isn't this in the top ten? It's one of their most popular songs and it's number 14! Why?

Heh how could a song like this not be in top 5?

It is very good

The Contenders

11 Slow and Steady

Possibly my favorite song of all time. This is a song that really helped me get through some rough times and loneliness and I always get so emotional listening to this one. I love almost every song by them, but nothing beats this one.

Humble and beautiful song. It hypnotizes me every time I listen. But all OMAM songs tend do that to me

12 Silhouettes

In my opinion, this is their best song. The lyrics and sound is just awesome

It's the best ever. one of the must hear songs

This song is so sad yet so beautiful

Totally the best.. I never heard a song with better lyrics... My number one OMAM song...

Sloom is beautiful and calming. With incredibls meaning. It's a murder told backwards which makes it even more unique! ONE OF MY FAVOURITES OVERALL

14 Wolves Without Teeth

A wonderful song. My favorite part is the pre-chorus.

I just downloaded this album and this is by far my favorite!

Should be higher on the list

Best song ever

15 Empire

Every time I hear the chorus I feel like my heart is gonna explode. By far the most amazing chorus I have ever heard of any song!

Such a brilliant song. Wonderfully crafted to produce a stunning chorus

The chorus is to die for

This song makes me feel happy, nostalgic, calm, and inspired. I love everything about it.

I love just listening to the music after the lyrics and the way it fits together so well

This song is one of the few songs I can well and truly zone out to.

I don't really have any other way to describe it other than chilling and mesmerizing.

One of the most beautiful pieces by OMAM even if it is simplistic. Deserves to be much higher.

The most beautiful song I have ever heard. It made me cry

One of my favourites there is just so much feeling in it.

Saddest OMAM song - RandomPerson1234

19 I of the Storm

This song HIT me. Hard. It's one of the most emotionally compelling songs I've heard in quite a while. I love it when I get such a powerful response to music.

I swear of Monsters and men do not have a single bad song. They are amazing and I'm in love with them.

Such a great song. It touches everyone who listens to it and has a strong meaning to it.

This is literally my favorite OMAM song. It should be in the top ten

24 Black Water

I love this. It sort of just makes me feel better. Can't for the life of me say why, as the lyrics aren't exactly uplifting.

No matter how stressed,sad or simply bored I am, this song always manages to relax me, and cheer me up, which is rather ironic since the lyrics are not exactly happy

25 Beneath My Bed
26 Hunger

How is this song number 30? This is one of the best songs on Beneath the Skin, my favorite after I of the Storm, Empire, and Crystals. This deserves to be so mush higher

Why is this song so lowly's a top song in beneath the skin

Wow. This is fantastic!

Hungry for the kill...

27 Backyard

Find me in the backyard... I always thought it was funny in the backyard before I saw the lyric video

Cold and dark lyrics but a great song

28 We Sink

Very charming begining.

29 Sinking Man

Beautiful song. Really gives me chills. Makes my life make more sense.

30 Winter Sound

This is one of my favorite OMAM songs... it's really uplifting and has an amazing instrumental. I honestly can't believe this one is the least popular song, it's simply amazing.
