Best Passion Pit Songs

The Top Ten

1 Sleepyhead

the only pp song that is commonly known

I can't even describe how this song makes me feel... It just put me in a better mood automatically and draws a smile on my face right away!

Now THIS is how you sample a song. The singer's voice simply explodes with passion (thus the name of the band) and the way he remixed that old song will be stuck in yor head forever.

I knew this song from Little Big Planet. I'm a little bias because of all the beautiful memories from that game. Take A Walk is also amazing. They're both on equal level for me.

2 Carried Away

I love this song..n the track is so catchy...loved the video with Sophia Bush...

This song has a great beat, melody, and is very relatable.

My favorite, I love the tune the meaning the video just an over all great song.

Makes me automatically feel refreshed and happy. Beautiful song.

3 Eyes as Candles

By far my most favorite song by Passion Pit.

4 Little Secrets

Genius lyrics, quick beat, mysterious meaning. Brings back rock and alternative ties into a psychedelic beat

Very unique alternative sound, yet so much harmony, perfect beat and awesome lyrics.

Straight up the most interesting song they've made. There's so much going on you never get bored of it.

Probably about Michael's struggle with bipolar disorder? Can't get enough of the melody and lyrics!

5 Take a Walk

This song is so catchy, and it feels wholesome, like a song really should be. It sounds amazing, it feels natural, and the lyrics and relatable. I would have to jump right over Sleepyhead, despite it's creativity and well selected instruments, this song is truly addicting.

I love this song the lyrics are great and I love the chorus! Who won't like this song with its flowing beat and tones!

I heard this song on the radio when it was first released. I didn't quite catch the name of it and subsequently spent pushing a year to try and find this song. Beautiful and catchy

The melody is amazing and the chorus just flows with so much enthusiasm it's hard not to fall in love with this song! Just listen to it, you won't regret it ;D

6 To Kingdom Come

Took me by surprise first time I heard it. Amazing song and definitely a stand out for Passion Pit and music in general! The dark lyrics about orange peels and crying to God are very dark, but it's contrast with the happy melody is interesting and very catchy. The "feel alriight" part is probably some of the best 15 seconds you'll ever hear.

The feel alright part always gets me jumping every time. It's very dark lyrics totally contrast the happy melody. Great song and personal favorite on the Manners album, right next to Sleepyhead.

Great sound! Sounds like something from a Sonic the Hedgehog course, which is a compliment!

Drak, smart, and vulnerable lyrics with a well crafted pop-rock melody and beat. What more could you ask for?

7 The Reeling

Truely an amazing song. The trumpet is really creative and unique. The synths fit perfectly. And that chorus. So catchy! And one of the best parts is that classic drum pattern from the 80s that occurs after every few measures or so. Genius

8 Moth's Wing

This is my favorite song, so of course I'm biased, but it's also amazing and it instantly lifts my spirits. It can mean anything to anyone, which is part of how cool it is. You can derive your own meaning from it, which is unique nowadays.

Great, deep vocals and detailed instrumentals. The great lyrics help too. Moths Wings definitely my favourite

One of the best songs from manners, just beautiful lyrics, a sweet, soft instrumental are perfect together.

Wonderful song. Deserves to be 3rd at least

9 Make Light
10 It's Not My Fault, I'm Happy

A song about despair and shortcomings with an underlying tone of vengeance and anger, one of the most complex songs on the album.

I'm not sure but I once heard that this song is about someone with bipolar disorder. God, what an amazing song still.

I first found out about this song from the fun size soundtrack when victoria was running and I thought it was absolutely perfect and I had to find it. a year later and it's still one of my favourite songs by pp and I can't believe its not in the top five what the hell

This song is one of Passion Pit's most known. I can't believe it isn't first on the list.

The Contenders

11 Cry Like a Ghost

By far their best, COMPLETELY underrated. At the concert this one captivated everyone, so amazing. Lots of Gossamer songs lower than they should be but DEFINITELY this one.

By far their most complete work. Lyrics and production are flawless. This song MAKES the album.

This song is and always will be one of my favourite songs of all time.

My favorite Passion Pit song, yet it's ranked this low. Definition of underrated.

12 Constant Conversations

This is played 874 times on my itunes... just a little obsessed

The lyrics get to me

HOW IS THIS SONG NUMBER 8?! It's too great to be 8th!


13 Swimming in the Flood

This song is so good! I think it should easily be in the top five. I love the wailing, moaning sound of this song. It's such a bittersweet song, and it works absolutely perfectly.

This is the most underrated and best passion pit song so far.

I second that opinion

1. To kingdom come
2. Swimming in the flood
3. Sleepyhead
4. Folds in your hands

14 Lifted Up (1985)

Nice happy song

Best song



15 I'll Be Alright

Excellent bridge between the separate parts of the song and the amazing "I'll Be Alright" chorus. Definitely one of Passion Pit's best songs.

16 Where We Belong

The most under-rated Passion Pit song ever. The lyrics show Michael Angelakos's struggle through his mental disorders. In the end it becomes a song about learning how to depend on the ones you love to recover

Easy the most powerful Passion Pit song of all time. Every piece of it is absolutely perfect. This song changed my life.

Unflinchingly vulnerable and personal "where we belong" is without a doubt one of Angelakos's most intimate and disturbed songs that serves as a perfect conclusion for gossamer.

Every part of this song reflects Michaels experience in a beautiful, powerful manner. I cri evrytiem

17 I've Got Your Number

Great build up and insane chorus

The memories this song restores

18 Where I Come From
19 Folds in Your Hands

The drop is lit

20 Where the Sky Hangs

A catchy song that makes you happy.

21 Let Your Love Grow Tall
22 Love Is Greed
23 Seaweed Song

Love this song so much

24 All I Want
25 Smile Upon Me
26 Cuddle Fuddle

This is such an amazing song, it is so awkward yet beautiful

27 Hideaway

Give it a shot guys

28 Live to Tell the Tale
29 Dancing On the Grave

Such a good song kinda sad but intense
