Top 10 Best OneRepublic Songs

The Top Ten

1 Secrets Secrets Cover Art

This song has some really nice cello at the start, which is rare in pop music. With lyrics about how it's okay to tell a white lie sometimes, and how it's always OK to keep a secret, this is an all-time favourite for me.

Secrets is the best song I have ever heard in my life. The beginning of the song is just so breathtakingly beautiful. The most beautiful sound I have ever heard in a song. The lyrics are so deep and meaningful, you just have to love them, they're some of the best lyrics I've ever heard. And well, Ryan's voice is just amazing. This song got me into OneRepublic. As soon as I heard it, they became my favorite band and this became one of my top three favorite songs, then a few months later it DID become my favorite song. I love ALL of OneRepublic's songs, I truly do, they all have such meaningful lyrics, but this one is BY FAR my favorite. And I've heard most of the songs on this list. You will not hear the end of my anger if Apologize EVER passes Secrets on this list, even though I love Apologize as well. Secrets is the ONLY OneRepublic song that can be number one on here. Best song on Waking Up, best song of OneRepublic, best song of 2009/2010, best song of the 21st century, best song ...more

I am a kind of person who hardly have any good friends. I would say none for real. Not because I can't make, because I can't feel anyone trustable and real who can say and mean it, who can love and give it. I wouldn't say there aren't real people out there but it's a challenge to find one though worth it. But I would say, one Republic has earned my sincere respect and love for what they write and what they sing. You can feel it from the Music and still lies a hope that people somehow will stop being artificial and be who they are not what money and ego makes them. Though I count myself in it because I am a human and I make mistakes but I guess I have started to realize that the real joy is in giving hope and love and being yourself rather than the artifacts.
Peace.

I have loved this song since the moment it began playing in the movie The Sorcerer's Apprentice. It is one of the best songs till date. whenever I play it, it's on loop and it never gets boring! The music is breathtaking and the lyrics, like most of their songs, are absolutely meaningful. Start to end- it is a masterpiece. Definitely underrated.

2 Counting Stars Counting Stars Cover Art

This song has a really simple beat and really easy four-chord piano. I'm not saying that this song is bad, it's pretty good. Ryan is good with the vocals except when he emphasizes "I". I'm not saying this a bad song, there's just... songs that can top it.

Was too low it was impossible NOT to vote. Now listen up, they wrote this song for you guys. it's all about everyone in bed at night, wondering about the cost of the next day and how to afford it. But when you die, you won't worry, there isn't a cost, you will be safe. This is why "everything that kills me makes me feel alive" and "no more counting dollars". Of course, to you, it might be counting Euros, or Francs, or Pounds, or Yen. But more than that, it's just plain awesome.

Counting Stars is a great song. I love it and it is astonishingly catchy. Not only do I like it, I haven't met a single person who doesn't, not a single one. When I hear people talking about music, the sentence "I LOVE that song! " Are what always seems to fallow. Even my pop-music hating brother admits it's great. And it is so catchy that it gave me the chills and mildly paralyzed me at first. It's a difficult song to hate.

I've heard most of OneRepublic's songs, but honestly, I consider this to be their best. It's a lot more pleasing to the ears. I don't know what it is with the other songs (maybe the falsetto? ) but after listening to them several times, it's a chore to listen to those songs. They can definitely do much better, instead of making songs that are listenable (is that a word? )

3 Apologize Apologize Cover Art

This song has some great cello at the start, except for that ONE off note. This song went crazy as soon as it was released. With lyrics about how it can be too late to apologize sometimes, this one is an all-time favourite for me.

"I'm holding on your rope
Got me ten feet off the ground
And I'm hearing what you say
But I just can't make a sound"

It's just pure genius.

This is certainly the best song by OneRepublic. I don't know why it ain't number 1. Well won't comment 'bout secrets as I ain't heard it. But this song is so soothing and certainly one of the best I ever heard. Simply loved it!.

Lyrics are damn stunning and man whatever I write about these guys would be less.

This song does not just motivate you your self but it also motivates your spirit and helps you shape you into the person that you wish to become in the near future. Thank you so much One Republic you are my favorite band and you have taught me that I can be who and what I want to be if I work hard enough to get there!

4 Good Life Good Life Cover Art

I had not so much attachment with One republic songs until Wherever I Go caught my attention because of its lyrics I got blown and then I became " I want to listen more of this group ", next song I listened was Good Life I became awestruck just AMAZING lyrics again! It became my daily anthem I'm not even kidding here. They make me this restless soul a Fangirrl. Apologize song... aqdhfvdjjddkjhlpkd...One republic is the best I can't even :'( and Ryan oh my dear heart don't get me started about this mind boggling guy super talented. Mentally I'm dating him.

When one of the Disneyland vids came out about a decade ago, this song was on it, and every time we heard it we called it “the Disney song,” and sometimes we still do! My sister still does, and probably always will😂

How I managed to survive 4 years forgetting this was a song is a mystery. It is SO uplifting, so catchy, I have no idea how I was able to get through life without this song. Ryan Tedder has THE. MOST. PERFECT. VOICE. EVER in this song. My second favorite song of all time, right behind Secrets by OneRepublic. No song can ever beat that.

My Number #1 Favorite Song ahead of any other song on the planet, and I listen to pretty much everything. This song is just -- it is amazing. It is also the perfect song to listen to while you are at the beach and the sun is shining and the seagulls are flying as the waves lap. It is a magical song.

5 Stop and Stare Stop and Stare Cover Art

This song was the second one released in Dreaming Out Loud, with a steady drumbeat and some nice guitar at the end. It tells a wonderful story and Ryan put a lot of emotion into this song. #3 for me.

Undoubtebly One of the Best of One republic...

The Best Lyrics to any one republic song, got me from the 1st time I heard it... I Thought Secrets was their best but after listening to this, it all changed... This is one of the songs that touches my heart every time I listen to it... Just Beautifully Composed song... Definitely Deserves 1st spot...

"This town is colder now, I think it's sick of us
It's time to make our move, I'm shaking off the rust
I've got my heart set on anywhere but here
I'm staring down myself, counting up the years
Steady hands, just take the wheel...
And every glance is killing me
Time to make one last appeal... For the life I lead"

This song is a bit old, but it has not lost its awesome lyrics and music with a great story. It is only lost in the crowd of auto-tuning. I say "Stop and Stare" is one of the best songs that One Republic has ever given, competing with the new One republic's new songs, and even surpassing it if it were to be released as if new.

How it's in 6th position? It's not right and so negative. when I heard this song for the first time I had addicted...
'cause this song made up from the awesome lyrics and best part of notes and melody..
One thing I love from this song because ryan tedder had a incredible and falsetto voices and it's so catchy and amazing...
Iwanna say one words for this song and one republic "unbelievable "

6 All the Right Moves All the Right Moves Cover Art

I love this song so much! It makes me really happy and Ryan Tedder's voice is so amazing in this song! (To be honest, Ryan Tedder's voice is perfect in every OneRepublic song, he's an amazing singer) It's such an amazing song and if you haven't heard it you really should! You should also check out "All The Right Moves - RT and Noel Z Rhythmic Remix" that is one amazing remix!

That should be the third song! That's one of the first song of 1R that I ever heard and seriously, every time I'm listening to one republic (which is really often) I come to listed to that one. Actually, my top three song are:
Apologize (without timbaland)
If I loose myself (the remix too)
All the right moves

Me of myself sometimes. I love this song! I play the cello and I listen to this song as much as I can. The cello solo is totally amazing. I wish I could sing with the emotion that OneReplic manages to put in this song. I love it.

My favorite song of all time. I first heard the song when I was angry after a fight with a sibling. This brought me into the best mood. I love this song, and always will!
I love this band so much and can't wait for another song!

7 I Lived I Lived Cover Art

My friend heard this song when she found out I had cancer and thought how it fit me. I have lived and loved and now will survive but it puts in perspective to always live and not just after you think all is over.

I, I did it all. I owned every second that this world could give. I saw so many places the things that I did. With every broken bone I swear I lived.

This song is the best from Native. The lyrics is a wish for somebody. I simply love the lyrics and the catchy melody. This song is a masterpiece. It has to be top 10 at least!

Yes oh yes. This was the first OneRepublic song I had ever heard and it was what got me hooked. So beautiful. It's both sad and happy at the same time, but uplifting either way.

8 If I Lose Myself

I love this song so much, it deserves higher than a seven. AWESOME beat, incredible lyrics and meaning, and perfect vocals from Ryan Tedder. The beat seriously makes me want to dance! The original is better than the remix in my opinion (probably because OneRepublic make perfect songs and don't need their songs remixed), but I still LOVE the remix. This should be number three, and Good Life should be number two.

I have no clue as to why this song is not number one. The song is the best I have ever heard. If you listen to the chores of the song. Not the first but the second and the longest one. You will know as to why this song is amazing it has a good positive message to it and I hope it becomes a number one hit.

1 year gone and still listening to this song and I listen to it at least once a day. The only one of the few songs I never get bored with. The song simply the best with the awesome lyrics and the meaning. Should be #1.

Great song With meaningfull lyrics. It's a new sound and it will reach higher on the list for sure. The instrumental part after the chorus is just AWESOME!

9 Love Runs Out Love Runs Out Cover Art

I didn't realize that this wasn't a given top-ten song! How dare you, O.R. fans?! This song being so low down on the list is an insult to the band. Ryan Tedder's vocals are better than ever. This song took OneRepublic to a whole new level. Just because it's more rock than pop, it doesn't deserve to be underrated! Besides... the rock-screamy-thing at the end ('till the LOVE runs out) is just epic! People - don't hate on the best song of the year. Please. Just don't.

The lyrical genius on one hand and the classic melody played on that sexy piano on the other hand + powerful drums in the march tempo. Isn't this what music is supposed to be? Fun, catchy, entertaining, makes you want to move and it connects old and new genres of music.

HOW?! This is among their greatest. I didn't even think it was debatable that this is top ten material - forget that, why not top three or even top spot over all? Such a good song. As much as I loved Counting stars, this is what made me fall in love with OneRepublic.

I really really love this song. for first time I heard this song, for a second I just stand front of the T.V. and just listen that, then I start to dance with it.. still now when I hear it, start to dance and jump with it..

10 Say (All I Need) Say (All I Need) Cover Art

The music in this song is incredible. The lyrics are amazing. That strange sound effect at the beginning works well. A big stand-out from OneRepublic.

One of the first few songs I heard from them. It's really amazing and meaningful, and the first verse actually reminds me of a character of mine that I made up. Anyway, it's just such a unique and amazing song.

This is a simple yet beautiful masterpiece by OneRepublic. It has a very unique and important message hidden in its lyrics. Respect for Master Tedder and his genius mates...

It always gives me goose bumps when I hear it, it's so beautiful. Ryan Tedder sounds so serene and truthful. I love all OneRepublic songs, but this one has to be my favorite.

The Contenders

11 Feel Again

Everything is perfect about this song. This is one of those songs that turns you into a HUGE OneRepublic fan. With lyrics about a numb heart and being able to feel again with a certain person, Ryan's soulful croon emphasised how much emotion he put into this song. An all-time favourite for me.

This should be in the top 5, for sure! It's so unique and the whole arrangement of instruments and voices just sounds so good. I love it! Seriously I can't say how much I love this song. One Republic has some great songs, and this is one of them.

Are you serious? There is no question that this should be number one. How is this number twelve? That's rediulous. This is probably one of my favorite songs of all time. It's so inspiring. Have you seen its music video? Amazing... I LOVE THIS SONG so MUCH!

This is the best song in the entire world. It makes me happy whenever I hear it no matter what else is going on. Feel Again is truly magic, and has the power to make me "feel again".

12 Marchin' On Marchin' On Cover Art

This is my favorite song ever. It inspires me in a way that makes me get stronger every day despite all the setbacks I might have to face. It is very empowering: "we go where we go and we're marching on". So, do what you gotta do and keep fighting. No. Matter. What. You're a warrior and you're going to fight all the way because you're strong just like that! Face every difficulty and grow with it. In the end, you'll have scars and you'll have bruises, but you know what? Own them, soldier. You just have to "put one foot in front of the other" and carry on. I love this song deeply.

There is no way that this song is so low on this list. Looking at the list above, I am SURE that the people voting are not actual fans. This is my most favorite song from the band. It is so uplifting and encouraging. This does not belong anywhere but in the top three.

Yeah, another song from the Waking Up album. For me, it's just better. Okay, back to the song. It really builds the spirit within. In my opinion the original song is better than the Timbaland's remix, which is a very rare occasion.

The lyrics and music is very very powerful and so inspirational. Has great tempo and instruments used in it and lyrics just mesh together so nicely. Love all the sounds and its very amazing song! Love it! Definitely top of my list.

13 Mercy Mercy Cover Art

I find it really sad how OneRepublic changed over time to fit in with the popular trends. This song is, like, the HOLY GRAIL of the old OneRepublic. The music video is filmed with black and white the whole time and it has deep lyrics. An enjoyable song, for sure.

Why is this lower down than Counting Stars and Something I need?
Mercy is one of their best songs!
I'm sure the people who are voting are not actual fans...

This song should be in the top 10 at LEAST

This song is so beautifully haunting I'm very surprised its not in the top 5, it's such a lovely song. You can't help but be captivated by Ryan teddars incredible voice

Gotta love Mercy, should be at number one if you ask me. It's a shame it didn't chart well here... Or on the Hot 100

14 Something I Need

This is such a great song! Great lyrics, and vocals and the emotion portrayed is raw and fantastic! My favourite for a while now. My faves:
1. Something I Need
2. Coutning Stars
3. I Lived
4. Feel Again
5. Good Life
Their new album Native is just amazing, there is not one bad song in it. Much love x

This is by far the best One Republic song out there. It is so catchy and I just overall love it so much, it's my favorite song. I'm really suprised it didn't get popular because its great.

This Song Is Amazingly Overwhelming and Exciting to listen to. This Song Is A New World To Me and It Breaks My Heart. I can't help crying!

This song is really good. One of my favorite of OneRepublic Songs.. This should be in the higher spot!

15 All Fall Down All Fall Down Cover Art

This is the one song I've heard that literally takes away my ability to think after a listen. What a piece; the acoustic progression, the cello, and the syncopated drums are awesome, but the backing vocal "ahh"s just pull it all together.

This is one of their best songs out there... The intro is just breath-taking... This one should definitely be there in the top 10... Just loved it!

This is a really good song. I love the lyrics. "Whenever your world starts crashing down, that's where you'll find me." The beat is really good too.

So beautiful song! The melody with the violin is really catchy and the lyrics have a deep meaning!

16 Life In Color Life In Color Cover Art

It was very hard for me to pick out one favorite OneRepublic song, but if forced to choose, I'd rather listen to this infectiously upbeat offering than any other. "Life in Color" by a nose!

My favourite OneRepublic song by far! It always helps brighten my mood when I'm feeling down. This should be way higher up on the list!

Don't understand why this song hasn't done better than it has! It is one of their best.

Awesome song! Makes me feel good inside. It is definitely one of my favorites.

17 Come Home Come Home Cover Art

This song means so so much to me, it's so well written, and it reminds me of the time when I used to sit at home along just listening to this beautiful song just over and over because I never got bored of it and the lyrics just captured my heart and they still do...please vote for this song, it really should be in the top ten!

I can't stop listening to this song. OneRepublic write poetic and meaningful lyrics. Every single one of their songs take me on a journey :) My top five would be:
5. Good life
4. Mercy
3. Everybody loves me
2. Secrets
1. Come Home

Such a touching, poetic song. I hope this gets to the top 5, it deserves it. The piano and lyrics are stunning, along with his voice. Best combo.

Can't believe such a wonderful song with meaningful lyrics and melody is here at #13 should be at least at top three.. Grow up people!

18 All We Are All We Are Cover Art

This song puts an almost tranquil mood of peace and serenity onto me, something I can't get much of in my hectic life. This song truly puts me at ease. It is one of the best songs period that I have ever hear, I am not putting this post up to make it number1, rather; I am putting it up to move it up the list to something better than a 9.

'I tried to paint you a picture, the colours were all wrong, black and white didn't fit you and all along, you were shaded with patience the strokes of everything... ' The lyrics send shivers down my spine

This is without doubt the most moving song I've ever heard from OneRepublic.
I get the chills every time I hear the chorus, especially because I can relate to it.

I don't know why, but this song upsets me.
I can feel all the power of this amazing band in this song.
I think it's my favorite one.

19 Preacher

This song is just incredible. I mean, what's there not to like? Those wonderful strings at the beginning, those steady, pace-keeping drums, Ryan's incredible voice, lyrics about his grandfather being a preacher, that choir in the chorus, everything. Truly a hidden gem from OneRepublic.

This is a hidden gem of Onerepublic's. When I just started to listen to them, I only knew about the "bigger" songs, such as "If I lose myself" and "Apologize" and the others. Then when I recently heard Counting Stars, I started listening to their album "Native" I think Preacher should at least be in the top 20, if not the top 10.

By far one of the best Onerepublic songs on Native, if not one of there greatest songs period. Catchy lyrics with an uplifting theme hard not to like. Would definitely say its top ten material.

Should definitely be top ten AT LEAST. This is one of those One Republic songs that make you say "that's it, this is officially my favourite band."

20 All This Time All This Time Cover Art

This song is just one of those that make me feel better when I listen to it, even if I'm not feeling down. It gives me a warm feeling, as its soft piano riff and deep lyrics give anyone a warm feeling

This song should be way up on the list but it hasn't received the recognition of some of their other songs. The lyrics are so deep and meaninful

The lyrics are deep and sensual. You actually feel like the person singing this song.

So calming and yet chilling.

This song is underrated and one of OneRepublic's finest.

21 Everybody Loves Me Everybody Loves Me Cover Art

" Don't need my health, got my name and got my wealth,
I
Stare at the Sun just for kicks all by myself
I
Might be passed my prime 'cause I can't keep track of time
But
I'm feeling oh so good! "

I don't think many true fans went with this, they just chose the popular songs. OneRepublic's best music is never played on the radio. Shame.

Simply put their best song. The song talks about how it is to be self absorbed or actually close to perfect. It's telling you that being so different from others is a lonely life and we shouldn't be going after perfection or narcissism. Fun, catchy, not popular enough!

Another great song from this band. In this record, we can clearly see that the whole song sounds a little bit relaxed, laid back. That's why I love it. The composition of the chorus is just brilliant.

Favorite OneRepublic song hands down, a blast to listen to, good verses, good pre-chorus, and an amazing chorus, one complain, the "OH OH OH OH", at one point sounded like moaning

22 Kids

May be it's a new song that's the reason this song is at the bottom. But trust me its awesome.

Amazing beat and lyrics. Once again, OneRepublic fails to disappoint.

Dude, this song is just new. that don't mean it is not good. the best upbeat song ever!. VOTE( sorry for acting like trump)

New song by them video filmed in Mexico! Pretty damn good!

23 Future Looks Good Future Looks Good Cover Art

I love how it sounds, it starts out like soft and quiet and then turns into an action packed adventure, I'm really sad this album got $#!% on by a lot of people.

Perfect combination of electronic and real instruments. Chorus is amazing. Ryan Tedder never fails to do amazing things with his song writing skills. Love this song. I think it should be #1

Love and can't understand why their songs don't hit the 1 spot when there so much better than some of the other s$! @ that does

Already My Favorite

24 Tyrant Tyrant Cover Art

The Tedder's vocals and the chorus make this song beast. Just listen to it.

Best underrated song from OneRepublic hands down.

The beginning of the adventure of Onerepublic

This one is very underrated.

25 Passenger

I really love this song. It's so beautiful and amazing. One of my favorites by them. Hope this beautiful song makes it to the top ten someday... Because it deserves to be there.

So different that they usually did, but, I don't, thsi song have something more. So beautiful!

Awesome song should be at no 2 after all the right moves

This song has to be in the top 15.
