The Top Ten

1 Central

Great drums along with awesome guitar. Extraordinary song! Better than unreachable...

This is right up there with the likes of Stairway To Heaven and Bohemian Rhapsody. It's just that we live in a period dominated by the ever so crappy pop music. This is pure art, pure class, pure music.

Best John Frusciante song BY FAAR its beautiful, lyrics are amazing, and the guitar blends with the piano and guitar, and the singing is beautiful

This song is other worldly.. Gives me the chills.. John On Guitar and vocals..! Even after Rhcp dis legend is no less dan a God of Music!

One of the most beautiful and meaningful songs ever... Thumbs up for this one... Really deserves it!

This song is so peaceful, the lyrics are deep. John's voice is also beautiful.

A truly superb song both lyrically and musically

Really good song

3 The Past Recedes

This is some quality music. The way John makes me feel is only imaginable and can be not expressed by words. He puts so much feeling into what he does, he really sends a message. And did I mention the solo? Unforgetable.

The chords are so simple and so powerful makes you wonder how beautiful music can be in its purest form.

There's always goose bumps whenever this man is involved

Sounds like a bob Dylan song, and that is a compliment. An excellent, beautiful song.

4 Unreachable

This song feels like it expresses john very well and I love how the last few minutes sounds like a storm is brewing

This particular song really takes to the point where you feel yourself in heaven.

Best song by him
There are so many but this has to come out on top, closely followed by Dying though

It's just amazing

Yes, He made many amazing songs like My smile is a rifle, Omission and Heaven, but this song in its simplicity beats them all

Any complimentary comment I make would be an understatement to this song.

Simply amazing. The chord changes are fantastic and really blend well together, I've recut this song and looped it for like ten minutes. That was an awesome jam session

I'm addict to this song

6 Wayne

Best song solo ever!

A lot of emotion in there!

I can't stop crying

''This song was recorded for my friend Wayne Forman, the coolest, kindest friend anybody could ever have. When I used to play in arenas I would often mentally aim my playing at him. Wayne loved long guitar solos, and he was my favorite person in the audience to play for. As everyone who knew him is well aware, he was also the best chef ever. When I saw him two days ago, he was laying in front of a CD player, so when I came home I decided I’d make something for him. I recorded this solo for him to hear, but I finished it a day too late, so now it is a tribute to his memory. It is what he would have wanted me to play for him, and it is my offering to his family and friends all over the world, as well as anybody else. Wayno lives in our hearts forever, the greatest guy anybody could ever know. I’m so lucky to have been graced by his friendship. All the love in the world to him.'' - John Frusciante

7 Song to Sing When I'm Lonely

Everything about this song is great! But I feel it doesn't beat the will to death

The title says it all. Play this, and you'll feel good. Very nice song.

A song that can make you cry and smile at the same time

So powerful yet so simple!

This song just captures my soul but the whole album is awesome - jimjojod

13 Omission

This might be my favorite song by him. So many to choose from. Unbelievable rhythm combined with the fluid, dreamy backing vocals. Makes me wanna dance around in circles.

The best Frusciante song. No one quite perfects the beautiful atmosphere that is created by John and Josh. It's even more delicate and atmospheric acoustic.

John seems to be most in touch with his pop sensibilities here. Two Red Hot Chili Pepper guitarists on the same song? How could it not be great!

This song sounds like an oasis song. I love it

Can't stop to listen to it constantly! Strong expression and deeply melody mixed with a fantastic solo which is so nicely fit into a whole song. Great vocal and lyrics both. One of the best for sure!

Awesome, just awesome. The guitar solo is so intense, the lyrics are so deep, it's so beautiful, what a wonderful song!

Great lyrics and a powerful solo this is by far one of johns best songs by far it really means something

This music... Is just amazing! Can't get tired of it! And it's not just the song itself, also the pause in the beginning... It's just incredible!

16 Here, Air

Emotional, listen to lyrics.

17 Wishing

I relate to the lyrics in this song along with most of his lyrics, I always find a meaning in his lyrics that take me to some part of my life. We had a lot of similar experiences - jimjojod

18 The Slaughter

Just absolutely beautiful work by john

Great, perfect... What else

The raw version of this is great.
Love his voice.
It's not his most emotional song, but it's close.
Definitely worth a listen.

19 Look On

Smoke Pot and listen to this song.. If you love guitar solos just listen carefully and you'll feel like as if the veins in your body are the strings of guitar.. You'll know what heavenly feeling actually is.

This song is awesome. The guitar and vocals mix perfectly into a pack of raw emotion that is hard to describe. He's regretting yet he is cheerful. Love it.

How can this song be so down the list? This is one heck of a creation by the John! Awesome track!

Such a powerful and emotive song. This one is a top five in my book.

20 The First Season

It's not the best recording quality and neither was John's voice so clear and harmonious, but it shows us all he would do.

Simply an amazing song and outstanding lyrics.

Just some georgious peace of art! John is genius! Hi from Ukraine)

21 Going Inside

A gem of a song

So underrated. Definitely must be higher

Why has no one commented this one yet? Great song love the beginning

22 Ramparts

This song is a beautiful shimmery little slice of perfection. I just wish it was longer.

Short, but nearly perfect song
gets even better every time you hear it

23 Away & Anywhere
24 Time Runs Out
25 My Smile is a Rifle

Beautiful yet raw Frusciante. It's amazing how he sings and plays his situation post-1994. This song, Mascara, and "Untitled #12" really give send out a message like he's screaming for help. This man can do it all.

In terms of pure emotional output, this gem can't be overlooked. The haunting guitar plus the real vocals put it over the top for me.

Simply incredible in its raw simplicity. - JasonMts

Definitely higher then 55th. Totally different genre then anything off of his later albums. Niandra ladies gets way too much hate in my opinion

26 Dark/Light

Song is amazing. I think it is cool because John Frusciante plays a custom 6-string bass on this song.

8 minutes and 31 seconds of John Frusciante. Purely beautiful song. What else needs to be said about it? Incredible song.

Repetitive, but the bassline (courtesy of Flea), choir, electronic elements, and awesome funky guitar at the end really make this song a quick and enjoyable 8.5 minutes. But hey, I'm a sucker for the John/Flea relationship

Amazing Song! The way the riffs change is unbelievable. 3 songs in one

27 Outside Space

Something that you will never get bored to listening.

Listen to high. Puts you in another place.

28 with no one

It touches me in a way that words can't really do any good to describe. The most beautiful sounds and vibrations I've felt in my life.

Unbelievably beautiful song. This should be in the top five.

How this isn't higher up I don't know. It's beautiful!

29 A Firm Kick
30 Before the Beginning

John has a decent voice. But his real voice is the voice of his guitar. This song is all about John storytelling using the guitar.

It is the story about how all things came to life in a non religious way.

One of the most beautiful guitars I ever heard.

31 So Would've I

Simply a masterpiece

32 Wednesday's Song
33 Fallout
34 In Your Eyes

Prog-Synth heavy, and a bit trippy, but romantic and uplifting.

35 The Days Have Turned
36 Your P***y's Glued to a Building on Fire

Just amazing. The last few seconds are just beautiful, John is a genius and Niandra LaDes and Usually Just a T shirt proves this the most. This is my favourite from him, along with My Smile is a Rifle, Running away into you, Big Takeover and Head(Beach Arab)

37 Far Away
38 Loss
39 Time Is Nothing
40 Time Goes Back

John lays down some good progressions and epic overdubs while jesus sings harmony in the background and

41 In Relief

The most beautiful song and moving lyrics

42 Time Tonight

This and scratches are his most beautiful.

Definitely TOP 10 song.

43 Untitled #2
44 Enter a Uh

Pure emotion. This shows when John was going through a deep struggle but still could produce beautiful music. One of the greatest songs I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. Thank you John.

45 Life's a Bath

Amazing
Amazing
Amazing
Nothing in this world brings me closer to music that this very song.!
