21 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.

Means so much to me. BEST and so different than other stuff they do. Catchy and fun

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

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.

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

25 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

26 Finger Back

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

27 I Think Ur a Contra
28 Obvious Bicycle
29 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
