The Top Ten

1 Dare You to Move Dare You to Move

This song is so great, that it was the only one I wanted to make a piano cover for. It's very catchy, and always puts you in a good mood when you listen to it. It's definitely on my top ten playlist.

Most beautiful and inspiring of their songs. Made me want to look up every single switchfoot song and see if they all made me feel the way this one does!

this song speaks to me. Whether it's spiritually or emotionally or religiously, this song will always hold a special place in my heart. I've discovered so many things through this song, it's not even funny. Thank you Switchfoot, for being one of the realest bands out there and playing for God and yourselves and to inspire others. It's created miracles in many people's lives. God bless you all and I hope you have many more great and successful tracks and albums like this one to come.

This song is so moving. It's one of those few songs that motivates me to do something with myself. And John Foreman has never sounded better than he did in this song. Definitely #1.

2 Meant to Live Meant to Live

Better than Dare You to Move, EPIC riffs, EPIC drumming, EPIC vocals, beats everything that's being played on Radio today

Switchfoot =

Amazing use of the instrumentals in the beginning, then let's the vocals in the first verse stand alone without much music, allowing for the lyrics to ring unopposed. Immediately after the instruments regain their position. The mesh that the instruments have in the chorus with the vocals is further augmented by the fact that it is the first time in the song that they meet, and they sound amazing. The riffs are great, as well as the drums. All in all a great song.

Switchfoot come alive! Great track with awesome riffs and equally good drumming! Classic switchfoot...

Love it!

6 Afterlife Afterlife

A great song about not waiting to die to come alive. Don't let society drag you down and desensitize you! Switchfoot's the best!

This song is inspiring and one of the best Switchfoot songs of all time! It deserves at least 2nd place but really should be in 1st!

8! What? Should be first or second, right up in the top two with dark horses. Both amazing songs. Vote for them

Afterlife is my second favorite song. But.. have you heard 'The War Inside'? God. This song I swear.

I was a bit astonished when I saw this song wasn't on the Best Yet. Such a great, catchy song with deeper meaning in the lyrics.
They play this song even better live!

This should be number 1, then Afterlife.

8 Your Love is a Song Your Love is a Song

How you doing? This song is the best ever. If anyone who has logged into this page and hadn't heard this song, it's my earnest request that you do. Dare you to move and the others which are up there, you won't feel to listen to them ever after hearing this landmark of a song.

Are you all kidding me? This is their best song, no second thought on that. This song is not just a good Switchfoot song, but this is a great song by any standard. This song got me hooked to Switchfoot to a point that even if they make Justin Bieber type of songs, I will still love them like hell!. Switchfoot rocks.

I wonder how even 'Stars' overleaped this song. This song should be at #2 after 'Dare You To Move'. And if it were not for the fact that I've over-listened to this song, I think it would still be #1 on my Top 10 list. This song is deep, people.. visit an otolaryngologist for an ear examination and then listen to this song again.

Best Band Ever! Best Song Ever! Amen!

9 This is Your Life This is Your Life

When I listened to it for the first time, I listened to it the WHOLE day!
When you already know what you who you want to be in your life, but just can't muster the courage to jump off the familiar and safe cliff, listen to this song.

10 Learning to Breathe Learning to Breathe

Hello good mornin, among the soothing, romantic songs I've heard in some time

Beautiful song. Great music for a chill or peaceful day. Hundreds of plays and Never gets old

Really beautiful and soothing lyrics. Deserves to be in the top 10. One of the most romantic songs I have heard.

"I'm finding that You and You alone can break my fall
I'm living again, awake and alive
I'm dying to breathe in these abundant skies"

Listening to this song is like a breath of fresh air. The tune, the lyrics, the melody coming together and Jon's raspy voice just makes the hair on your back stand up! This will now be my favorite song ever! :D

13 You You

Never seen the movie. But honestly I find it very hard to connect the lyrics to any human relationship. Instead, these lyrics do fit in a very honest and beautiful way to describe one's relationship to God.

For example: "I find peace when I'm confused, I find hope when I'm let down...Not in me...in You, it's in you... I hope to lose myself for good, I hope to find it in the end... Not in me... In You."

No human being can ever be that *good*, no way. No one except Jesus Christ. No other person can ever be worth "losing" your own life and "finding it" in (that) other one. Comparing this song to human relations just because the song was used in a romantic movie soundtrack doesn't change the original purpose of the lyrics. And I'd really like to believe that the writer originally pointed his lyrics to God, not to man/woman. It would make a lot sense that way.

And personally I've been touched by the lyrics just that way. To point those ...more

This song surely touches you... The selfless nature of a gy craving for a girl... Its you... Its not me.. Its you

Can't live without it... Awesome song I'd ever heard...
And what I say about a walk to remember... It build my faith in love

Amazing lyrics in an amazing movie...the movie was made memmorable with this song...
