The Top Ten

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

Such an amazing gem. This is God on guitar and vocals!

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

Beautiful vocals, great lyrics, and I particularly love the mellow, silky outro.

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

Quelle musique intense! Pour moi il d├ępasse de loin tout les autres!

Great piece of music. Simple yet deep lyrics. Great guitar work. Emotional.

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!

Shadows collide with people is fantastic. This song is also fantastic.

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

A truly superb song both lyrically and musically

More cosmic beauty from the man himself

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.

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

Such emotion and rawness. I can't decide which song of John's I like the most but this is top 5!

18 Look On 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!

This is the kind of song you listen to as you rest on your folded arms that lay upon a windowsill as you watch the rain begin to fade from a cities streets, and the sun peeking through the clouds, warming everything it touches with its golden rays.
