Wicked song their best so far

So catchy and so fun to listen to!

Good

3 Holiday
4 Step

I've always thought that VW were a good band, but never really connected with what they were doing. It all sounded tight and poppy, but nothing hit me emotionally. I didn't feel it. This song, "Step, " changes that instantly. It blows me away every time.

At first it seemed like an odd song. But the more I listened to it, the song felt more emotional and beautiful. The lyrics also make sense and are very relatable.

Best lyrics they have ever wrote. "Girl" can be related to so many references... Songs, ideas, goals, and yes, girls

Best single of 2014

5 Giving Up the Gun

The beat of this song is so catchy! And the lyrics are a good match. They don't necessarily go crazy with the pitch or anything, but they do a damn good job with this one.

Seems a bit different than all their other songs, and it works really well! Fantastic lyrics and a very catchy beat to match!

Far and away their best song. It has a cool funky beat and bassline and stays true to Vampire Weekend while also appealing to those who don't like their other stuff.

So good. Their best song till now. Awesome lyrics and the beats and the music is adorable,changes your mood completely...love it.

6 Oxford Comma

Who gives a F-- about an oxford comma? :D

I heard first in how I met your mother and now this is my ring tone. kinda different song from others but different mean good

Such an oddly lyrical song. Richard Nixon and UN references randomly thrown in.

Why would you lie about how much coal you have?

7 Hannah Hunt

One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. It's so simple and just amazing. The bridge thing with the drums and piano is the best part

Absolutely wonderful lyrics! I feel this is their best song!

I love the lines in the last verse, "If I can't trust you then damn it Hannah, there's no future, there's no answer.", and "You and me, we've got our own sense of time...", it's just a beautiful song. The end is my favorite part.

How is this not #1? It's the most beautiful and moving song I've ever heard.

9 Horchata

When I saw this songs name, I freaked out! I love horchata! And I love thi song!

This is an amazing song of theirs! :D I was introduced to them by step and so I started exploring and this song won me over! :D

Dope dope song. Definitely was one of the first of theirs I ever heard and have loved them since

10 Cousins

This was their opening song when I saw them live and the energy the crowd had was amazing. Everyone was singing along to the extremely catchy lyrics and dancing to the beat and it was an outstanding start to the night! Definitely one of my favorites.

How did you forget this one? This one has a good tune, and should be in here!

It's so powerful and motivates you to dance a crazy dance, I love it.

On the top!

The Contenders

11 M79
12 Walcott

Come on! This so is just so invigorating! Definitely should be at least in the top 5!

Hands down. No competition. The best song they have made to date.

Catchy, rhythmic, and Ezra has amazing control over his voice. When I hear this song, and the whole Contra Album I imagine being on an tropical island surrounded by beautiful scenery and blue skies all around. Beautiful. My favourite Vampire Weekend Song (and off my favourite album)

Very underrated. I love it though and it's my favorite. Not A-punk, but still very good.

I LOVE THIS SONG I CAN'T EVEN
It was hard to decide between my favorites though... This one, Diplomat's Son, I Think your a Contra, Diane Young, The Kids Don't Stand a Chance, and Holiday. But this one is awesome so I chose it haha

That chorus...

15 Diplomat's Son

I have no idea why this song isn't even in the top ten. Great great song.

100% their best song

IT'S SO PRETTY.
HIS VOICE IS SO AMAZING IT'S SO SMOOTH AND PERFECT M

16 Mansard Roof

This song is the best. Why isn't it higher up on the list?

17 Campus

I love listening this song when I'm in college

Catchy, meaningful, and everything in general is amazing about this song.

Their most underestimated song ever

18 Unbelievers

This song is just amazing! I love it so much. I love the lines- "I'm not excited, but should I be? Is this the future that half the world plans for me? " awesome lines. I also love Hannah Hunt, Oxford Comma, A-Punk, and Giving Up the Gun.

This song is literally amazing! I expected it to be number one on the list. It's so catchy and meaningful, you can't not like Unbelievers. It's one of my favorites.

"Want a little light, but who's going to save a little light for me? ". This song should be at least a top 10! - eugepotra

Unbelievable song. It's really good.

20 Ya Hey

God, wow, this song. Such depth, darkness and passion. Captures the essence of pure fervour of religion, nationalism, music, love, whatever and mixes it with the respectful quirkiness of VW. The beauty of this song is that it not only makes immense sense but that it can make different kinds of sense to different kinds of people. Truly one of the music highlights of 2013.

One of the best Vampire Weekend songs ever, ridiculously catchy yet very meaningful. I think it should at the very least be in the top 10. Same with "Step", which is amazing, too.

Number one for me, definitely. A-Punk? Please. Great song, but this stuff is something else. One of the new century's best songs in one of its best albums, in my earned opinion.

My vote goes to this song. It's the best altho I don't actually like the lyrics but the sounds are good

21 The Kids Don't Stand a Chance

AMAZING SONG. VOTE IT. DESERVES TO BE IN TOP 10 FOR SURE.

Easily top 5

22 Everlasting Arms

Beautiful, beautiful song. Can't say much else. I feel so in love every time I listen to this song! How is it at 21?! Should be at least 15. Come on people, give it a listen!

Oh my god... such a beautiful song, just listen to that bass line! Vampire weekend is one of the best new bands out there and their last album is a masterpiece!

The opening, the bass, and the organ is what makes thhis song beautiful.

23 Worship You

Listening to it and voting for it..
Just listen to it once I bet you'll get hooked to it.

Fast paced banger innit

Listen it once.
I can bet my life that yuo will love it and try to sing it once on your own.

24 Boston
25 I Think Ur a Contra
26 Run

Come on! This song deserves the Top 10! Unfair!

Best song off Contra. Period.

Run should be in the top ten!

This is SUCH a great song it has a great underlying meaning too its one of my top five VW songs how the heck is this not higher

27 Finger Back

Great Song! Koenig knows how to trick peoplr into a sad upbeat song. And Finger back is one of 'em.

28 Obvious Bicycle
29 Taxi Cab

This song is underrated

30 Don't Lie

This song deals with ideas of mortality and fleeting youth in the most beautiful way possible. "Don't lie, I want you to know, God's loves die young, are you ready to go? " It really sparks up a need to live life to its fullest. Since we're not lying here, no, I'm not ready to go. Absolutely amazing.

This is definitely not one of their best songs, but it should be higher than 30! The lyrics, if you really take to time to examine them, are really clever and deep. Also, the minimalistic nature of the background music goes really well with the style of the song.

33 I Stand Corrected

The most relaxing and beautiful song on their first album.

34 One (Blake's Got a New Face)
35 California English

Of course this is at the bottom of the list. It's not bad enough to be considered an under-dog, and not good enough to be a classic.

37 Arrows
38 Young Lion
39 Song 2
