Great song... Long time since I heard anything as touching as it, this has been a masterpiece of adam

Fireflies is not your average song. I could listen to this song over and over again without getting sick of it. This song shows loads of emotion that will blow your mind. Listen to the song closely. I LOVE this song. It isn't about romance, break ups, cheating, and all the stuff you hear on the top 40... Its about his opinion of life but he uses it in metaphors. This is by far my favorite song n the world.

3 The Saltwater Room The Saltwater Room Cover Art

I REALLY love THIS SONG! The duet was awesome, the music was outstanding EVERYTHING IS JUST SO PERFECT! This should be in the number 1!

Oh my god I have no words to describe this song.. Ok, maybe I have a few.. The girls voice is so amazing, its like shes from a different world, it just sounds impossibly childish and serene... I don't know, this songs just so amazing

Lovely song, male and female singing

This song is fantastic! I was listening to it this morning and ranting in my head about how perfect and calm and sweet it is! I love it! Though this was a tough battle between galaxies, to the sky, and hot air balloon, I had to choose this one!

4 Good Time

If you feel down, listen to this song! It will pump you up right away

This song should rank up! :) because its always a good time!

The tuning and vocals are just out of the park, Carly rae jepsen only adds to the unique charm of this wonderful song

Screw all their other songs, none of them even come close to this!

5 To the Sky To the Sky Cover Art

AMAZING! Love the lyrics, would definitely watch Owls of Ga'hoole just to listen to the song again!

This song is awesome. Listening to this it fells like I am in heaven. It is the most beautiful song of owl city. Its so soothing and sweet feels like listening and listening

This is such an amazing song! It makes me want to fly and be free! It's alive and lovely! I think it should be first, although I love Firelight as well!

Best Song Ever, My Success in Life and Test Returns to This Song... Go Ahead Owl City.. Songs Like This Will Light Up the World... An It's Totally Combined With Fireflies :)...

6 Rainbow Veins Rainbow Veins Cover Art

Absolutely amazing! This song is one of my favourite or all time and I have over 3000 songs! I find it absolutely stunning. The lyrics are very unique and it really makes the listener feel as though it is happening to them. After Fireflies, it is their best. (Hello Seattle is tying with Rainbow Veins! )

This is the best song of Adam young. I think it should be in top 4

Xylophone, Acoustic Guitar a catchy beat - you can't help but move to this song. The most musically accomplished another unique sound from Owl City.

It's just so beautiful, the lyrics sweep you off your feet and the instrumental is too wonderful to put into words. Galaxies is amazing, but this one could use more votes.

7 On the Wing On the Wing Cover Art

Best song ever from Owl city. Listen to this song in a quiet room with full volume and feel it. I bet you'll feel damn good. Long live Adam Young!

There is an excellence spotted beneath the song. (Which is great and incredible! )Good work Adam.

Better then salt water room and hot air balloon should be in top 3. Listen to it its a hell song to be listen at night.

What a song from Owl City and Adam Young... it became my favourite song from the moment I heard it first. Its music is fantastic and in many ways different from the other songs' musics... What a song... The starting and the ending of the song is the best...

8 Galaxies Galaxies Cover Art

Easily best of the owl city songs. It just makes you happy when ever you listen to it. Next best in order, Hot Air Balloon, Fireflies, Honey and the Bee, Rainbow Veins, Dreams don't turn to dust

Galaxies is really good and should be ranked way higher than no.22
It has a great foot tapping music and its tough for me to decide between galaxies and fireflies but I this galaxies get my vote.

Ugh! Why do I have to pick between this and To The Sky?
But seriously, this is awesome. Great tune, great feel, and I love the content!

Galaxies is just a beautiful song. The intro is amazing (January 28 1986 and also the actual violin intro). This song is upbeat and super catchy. It makes me smile every time. Definitely one of the best Owl City songs.

9 When Can I See You Again?

Thumbs up if you have seen Wreck-It Ralph and loved When Can I See You Again!

Soundtrack ending of Film Wreck it Ralph! Awesome song! Feel like in the future!

Awesome song, just amazing!

This is a great song. I just have one question: Why on earth did the Wreck-It Ralph people decide to put the BEST track in the movie... IN THE CREDITS? At least put it at the very end. Amazing "feel-good" track with the sort of "otherworldly" start that made Owl City's previous tracks, like "Fireflies" such a hit.

10 Silhouette Silhouette Cover Art

A beautiful, emotion-filled song. I fell in love with it almost immediately. You can tell that Adam put love into every note in this song. Beautiful work as always, recommended to anyone who has yet to hear it.

This song is simply amazing! It touches your hear and you can always relate to it. "i'm tired of waking up in tears because I can't put back these phobeas and fears"

Beautiful songs, relax and good music. It must be on top 10! :))

This emotional and touching song deserves to be #1 because we can all relate to this song, and I think we all have felt this way sometime in our lives

The Contenders

11 Alligator Sky Alligator Sky Cover Art

I really liked this! This is my favorite among all cause of the background music of the rap makes everything change to the best... WHY IS THIS THE 17TH!? THIS SHOULD BE BETTER THANK FIREFLIES... I liked how adam sings... The lyrics are so smart and GREAT I love it

It's absolutely a wonderful song, I really love it... And so blowing, I think that it should be between the top10

This song is simply amazing. With the rap, Shawn Christopher adds to the opening and chorus, but the simple version has such a good melody! I love the key change near the end as well. I'm always a sucker for those. This song definitely deserves to be on the top ten.

Adams incorporation of shawn chrystopher is flawless. It fits perfectly and makes this song one of the best Owl City has to offer. Its upbeat and just fun to listen to.

12 Hot Air Balloon Hot Air Balloon Cover Art

Awesome song one of my favourites this and fireflies amazing

This song is really sweet... The best part is the oxymoron- "cold hot air balloon"... Love it!

Excellent song by owl city. What a music. Better than fireflies & vanilla twilight

This song makes me so so so so HAPPY! I have all Owl City's songs and I love all Owl City's song because they are amazing and he is amazing and! Next time he tours Australia I'm GOING BECAUSE I'm HIS BIGGEST FAN! Ps. For all those people who think Owl City is a band, you're wrong, Owl City is Adam Young.

13 I'll Meet You There I'll Meet You There Cover Art

This song is absolutely beautiful! How is it not at least in the top 10? This has been my favorite song by Owl City for 2 years now and I have heard over 40 of their songs and I'm also a HUGE overall Owl City fan! Beautiful lyrics and soothing: "We'll fill the metro skies with country air, and when you close your tired eyes I'll meet you there. "

Get voting. This is an amazing song, if you actually bother to listen to it. So get listening, realize the power of the song and get voting

Such A Beautiful Song 🎶..

14 Cave In Cave In Cover Art

This song isn't just isn't one of Owl City's best, it's their best. Heck, it is the best, out of music itself. Listening to the lyrics makes you know what to do when your stressed, a quality that makes it unique, and with the cave-mining comparison, many words like "octane", "turnpike", "bedroll, " and "undermining" just add to the inteense beat and radio-like music at both the beggining and end of the song.

This song is Owl City's best. In my opinion, it's this, then Hello Seattle / Fireflies / Hello Seattle (Remix), followed by "When Can I See You Again? " from Wreck-It Ralph.
I would say Fireflies is the best, but Cave In isn't only well written, but the melody is very powerful. The lyrics and overall vocals match the song's melodies and harmonies to create what I believe is Owl City's masterpiece.

Best song ever in my opinion! Should definitely be in the Top 10 for sure. The beat is just incredible and the way that it tugs at your heart and mind as well makes it awesome. Riding a dirtbike down a turnpike always takes its toll on me. Simply Amazing

An incredible song I don't have any other words other than awesome, Breath taking this applies to all of Adam's songs

15 Plant Life Plant Life Cover Art

This is the most beautiful song ever, with a weird lyrics :p.. Every time I'm listening to this beautiful song, I can picture the image of the lyrics. It just comes into my imagination. I started to love it last 2 years, and I still love it today

"If I were to pluck on your heartstrings, would you strum on mine? "

A great song about overcoming your fears!

A pop song written in a waltz style?!? What a novel idea! Plant Life is a happy, dreamy song about an overgrown haunted house sitting on the fringes of Owl City's forest.

16 Hello Seattle Hello Seattle Cover Art

The music is really good. Not much words, just music. I love owl city (Adam). Well Done!

Wow What a beautiful song Adam I just liked your style in this. Awesome song one of my favorites, Best song I have heard in owl city. One of the best song of owl city. It is really sweet, I love it! Thumbs up

This song is AMAZING! But then again, all of Owl City's songs are amazing. I really love Hello Seattle though... It's my favorite.

This song is great. The melody is amazing, and the lyrics are definitely a plus. The "Hello Seattle (Remix)" version is also very good, even though the remix's only lyrics are "Hello Seattle" for 5 minutes.
Owl City was an electronica project to start, and this is a piece of great electronica. (Especially the remix.)

17 How I Became the Sea How I Became the Sea Cover Art

Simply enchanting. One of Owl city's greatest. I also love Rainbow Veins, but clearly this one needed the vote more. This one also shows us the rare time Adam uses a huge tempo change in his music, this one and cave in are the only examples I can think of. Not to mention the opening and closing are perfectly trancing. Love to go to sleep/wake up to this one.

How I Became the Sea tells the story of Adam's sleepy overnight rise to stardom, in unique a way as possible. He compares himself to the sea, Of June is a lobster shell, Ocean Eyes to the soft oceanside and his hit Fireflies, is a hurricane crashing in, tossing him into the sea of fame. He predicts his the rest of his career, saying he'll bring the oceanside to it's knees and feel the even tide deepen his shallow dreams, giving somewhat of a happy finality to his career. What a song by the young genius from Minnesota.

This song is so wonderful, and I just love how he sounds. This song can calm you down, and make you feel so happy. This song clearly belongs in the top 10!

This song is absolutely mesmerizing, from the tranquil melodic structure of the song to the jamming end part of the song. What I love about this song is how it has this feeling of epic-ness through the whole song. Then owl city capitalizes off it by a smooth yet dancey beat towards the end, then he concludes the song with a simple playful notes with the same ryhtem.

18 Beautiful Times

One of Adam's best songs! The instrumental is creative and powerful, it fits the lyrics as they are very powerful as well. The melodies are catchy too. It begins as a sad, dark song, but ends up being his most optimistic song in my opinion. It's just a streak of light, a ray of hope which brightens your day and never fails to make you feel stronger!

So, so amazing. While I loved Good Time, this one just took me back to the feeling of Adam Young's older songs. It is just so nostalgic and beautiful. The instrumental by Lindsey Stirling just enhances the song with the rich and moving tune. While I love Fireflies just as much as any other Owl City fan, Beautiful Times takes my vote.

I'm gonna vote for Beautiful Times, because since there are many people suffering due to difficulty of life. These lyrics on this song got me: "We all suffer but we recover, just to discover life where we all are."

Only takes one listen to love this song! Great new song that should definitely make its way to the top of the charts!

19 Shooting Star Shooting Star Cover Art

This song just helps me calm down when I'm stressing out about life, and because of that I love it!

This song is magical! Great beat and amazing lyrics!
I feel so special every time I listen to it, it lifts my spirit and puts me in a joyful mood

The best song! I don't understand why it's not higher in this ranking :( Very powerful beat and when I listen to it I fell so much happier!

Best song ever! Heard it first on a MLB commercial awesome song! Has a remarkable beat and tune! Lyrics are catchy!

20 If My Heart Was a House If My Heart Was a House Cover Art

Such a wonderful song! You can tell Adam poured his haeart into every note! It reminds me of past relationships and all the good times I have shared with them! My heart always skips a beat whenever I here this song!

Lovely, sad song! I love it so much definitely the best of Owl City!

This song made me think of my bff. He does have a girlfriend and I'm not gonna mess with her and I don't want to hurt him. He loves her to death but I have him as a bff and he's always there when I need tot talk to someone and I love him to death ^_^

Hands down my top pick by him and I've heard them all lol. Prior to this, id only heard Fireflies, which while I love now, was very overplayed in my 8th grade year. I heard If My Heart Was A House in 2010-11 on an adorable compilation of marriage proposals. I had to look up the artist, and was shocked to see it was the fireflies guy! I was so in love with the sing I dove right into his whole catalog and loved almost every song. Still do. But this song is the entire reason for my love of owl city and its always number one for me

21 Fuzzy Blue Lights Fuzzy Blue Lights Cover Art

I think its one of the best of owl city/? Because of the awesome lyrics

Must listen to this guys! WOW it's awwsome

Fuzzy Blue Lights speaks to me in such a beautiful way..

Great melody and lyrics. I would rank this as 4th or 5th

22 Honey and the Bee Honey and the Bee Cover Art

Cuties song I ever heard.
And one of best duets I even know.
Just.
Perfect.

It's such a beautiful song. I don't how this isn't even in the top 20. That's just cray cray.

One of the best duet ever. Breanne Düren and Adam Young are great. More duet please =)

This is like the most underrated song produced by owl city! I think it still deserves a higher spot on the list...

23 Lonely Lullaby Lonely Lullaby Cover Art

Personally My favorite, its usual Owl City, but different; way better than Vanilla Twilight. Also it's not overly popular (wasn't even on this list when I looked)

Beautiful song.. I just have one question: Anne Mary, why did you have to leave Adam? Long distance is not hard if you have a guy as great as Adam, who's so worth waiting for...

One of my favorite songs from owl city... This song has great emotions behind it

Amazing. Written from the heart, its totally beautiful. This is actually better than Vanilla Twilight.
This one blows all love songs out of the water.

24 Tidal Wave Tidal Wave Cover Art

This is worthy of at least top 5! Music and lyrics are awesome... touches your heart! Why not give it a twirl? Liking of this song may wash over you!

Owl City Relient K = Epic collaboration. This song's should be on the top 3.

This song is so soothing, I love it

This is top 5! An excellent message of hope.

25 The Technicolor Phase The Technicolor Phase Cover Art

The Technicolor Phase is brilliant, why is it only at 23?

This is true poetic art... If you really know you're Owl City, you would hear and feel the best quality here...

"If you cut me I suppose I would bleed the colors of the evening stars." One of the best if not THE best owl city lyric. I love this song so deeply.

I love Owl City, and so many of his songs, but this stands above the rest! It's a shame more people don't feel the same...
