Best EDM Songs

The Top Ten

1 Strobe - Deadmau5 Strobe - Deadmau5 Cover Art

21% of the voters on this list must have been 13 year old girls who don't even know what edm stands for. There's no other way that get lucky could be number one on this list, let alone the top 10. Heck, it's not even their best song! Harder better faster stronger, one more time, technologic and around the world could easily top it, just to name a few. Anyways enough about that. Strobe may be 10 and a half minutes, but it will be some of the 10 and a half happiest minutes of your life. From the beautiful intro to the changing melody to the huge drop to the mysterious sounds, this track is an edm masterpiece to say the very least!

I know this is insanely long, but I needed to describe everything.

This song is ten minutes of pure awesomeness. It begins with a slow, quiet, simple beat and a bit later some piano is added in. At around minute four, things begin to heat up and it quickly becomes deadmau5 at his best. In fact, not just deadmau5--ANY artist. This song comes not for money or fame, not as a filler track to make an album longer. It comes from the heart.

This song is what helps define true EDM. There's no real "drop," it's just progressive. It goes to show you don't need loud, annoying, ridiculous sounds to make a perfect EDM track. I'm truly happy this song is at #1 (at least as of now), because that's where it deserves to be. And I really hope this song will stay at it's top position for years to come, because it is truly the best.

The edits on the Strobe EP are garbage. You have to buy the whole EP (or the album it was featured on, "For Lack of a Better Name") ...more

Buddy, deadmau5 isn't the best out there. Granted this is a great song, but "fire starter" from The Prodigy's "fat of the land" album is pretty close to the definition of true electronic dance music. If you don't agree with me, look at their total revenue compared to modern edm acts. - 8chAnonymous

The cool thing about edm is there is is no right or wrong answer when it comes to the best song, I think everybody's opinion about this song and on other songs are pretty reasonable considering everybody has different tastes. Edm is a lot different than any other genre of music because it is very flexible with almost any type of ear, for example if you like rap and rap only I guarantee that there is and edm song that you would like because most people who like rap like a hard kick and hard bass this can very well cut into edm. But my point is is that we all have different ears and yes we can probably all agree on one edm song that we all like but we could probably never agree on the best edm song ever that we all like.

Even if you can't get it on iTunes without buying the whole album, it's worth it. This song is the definition of PROGRESSIVE house. The edit's SUCK. You have to hear the entire song for it to be touching and meaningful. From the sad beginning to the kick to the "drop" which takes 7 great minutes, the slow but steady quieting to what sounds like the most refreshing drop of water in the world, this song is what it is.

2 Levels - Avicii Levels - Avicii Cover Art

One of the greatest and most important songs ever created, this is music in its purest form. This is art.

Forget EDM, one of the best songs of all time. After 50 years from now you really think people will remember Deadmau5 over Avicii? Levels is a whole other Dimension.

One of the greatest and most important songs in EDM history, a modern classic

A classic in the making. Literally the bohemian rhapsody of edm.

3 Animals - Martin Garrix Animals - Martin Garrix Cover Art

This song is a masterpiece. The way flows to the best drop I have ever heard is underrated. I tried all the suggestions of people who think that main stream music is garbage and quite frankly I am disappointed. I know that there are some mainstream artist whom are not always good (The chainsmokers) but saying things like its sucks or its garbage just shows how people will are arrogant. I mean at least appriciate THE DROP and stop all that "true edm" like future house and just think critically and make clear judgement.

I admit that the drop is super catchy, but the melody is very repetitive. There are many more creative songs out there; Animals is definitely not the best EDM song (considering EDM as an umbrella genre for other electronic genres).

If you haven't listened to this song, I recommend it. This EDM song is special because it was the most thought out and best composed. Listen to the song over and over again and you'll notice that every little sound has a complete purpose. Most EDM songs are thrown together as long as they are catchy, but Martin Garrix is a true artist and composes his songs with an open mind.

Martin Garrix is by far my favorite EDM producer and DJ of all time, and I've never heard a song that was bad made by him. Keep up the great music!

4 She Heals Everything - Porter Robinson

Not even out yet. Just goes to show how special Porter Robinson's music can be and how emotive it is

Definitely one of the best Porter Robinson live edits. It takes Shepherdess, an extremely rare and underrated song that's already amazing, and makes it a million times better.

Porter Robinson, the best in emotional EDM

When porter says "she heals everything"... it sends shivers down my spine...

5 Ghosts N Stuff - Deadmau5 Ghosts N Stuff - Deadmau5 Cover Art

Made me love Rob Swire, introduced me to EDM, and I still listen to it.

This and Strobe are Deadmau5's BEST SONGS! This is the one song I could dance to ALL DAY!

This, the funk (by daft punk), kill the noise (by kill the noise), I rememeber (by deadmou5) and cinema (skrillex version), nuclear (zomboy), and all I ask of you (skrillex) are my fave edm songs

6 Faded - Alan Walker Faded - Alan Walker Cover Art

Even though it's a modern equivalent to Dreamscape by 009 Sound System. It's still a great track.

Not only is it beautifully composed, and extremely unique, and incredibly well-mixed, but it's catchy as hell. So overplayed though.

It's just awesome and Alan walker has done something out of the world by creating this song

Best song of all time! No Martin, no Avicii, nobody above alan walker! No levels, no animals can beat faded!

7 Opus - Eric Prydz Opus - Eric Prydz Cover Art

Don't be fooled by how reacent the song is, it brings so much promise that it'll make you have feelings that you haven't felt since Strobe. This song really tests you because the build up is so long, but the rest is worth more than a thousand words. This truly is the next Strobe, and a masterpiece that takes you back to the past where electronic was real and not fake like it is now.

This song is just awesome trust me, in my opinion (just in mine) this is even better than strobe, those 9 and half minutes can heal your depression your stress, awesome Pryda you are the best

Much better than Strobe...

Such awesomeness, much wow.

8 One More Time - Daft Punk One More Time - Daft Punk Cover Art

Nice song but Strobe is always the best, can't be beaten.

How is this not No. 1? It at least has creativity in the song.

Never get old

Ahhh memories.

9 I Remember - Deadmau5 I Remember - Deadmau5 Cover Art

The perfect blend of music and vocals, absolutely amazing!

Good bass love the beat I give it a 9

Just a beautiful song overall

The God of smooth progressive EDM Deadmau5

10 Aisha - Gaia Aisha - Gaia Cover Art

The Contenders

11 Titanium - David Guetta Titanium - David Guetta Cover Art

Love this song!...absolute perfection of beats combined with awesome voice of sia sends a chill down your spines!...I PROMISE

Easily the best EDM song ever, the opening tune is so melodious and the drop is just outstanding, a masterpiece from Guetta and Sia

I'm bulletproof

Best edm song ever.

12 Forever is Ours - Armin Van Buuren Forever is Ours - Armin Van Buuren Cover Art

This song is like heaven to me. The magical piano with Emma Hewitt's voice makes you want to replay it over and over and over again without you getting tired of it. A true perfect masterpiece by the Trance King Armin himself.

Need a more deserving place.
Top of the roof, but Intense's still better.

13 Bangarang - Skrillex Bangarang - Skrillex Cover Art

Never gets old!

I think this should be in top ten list!

It should be in top 20!

Best in this list

14 Spaceman - Hardwell Spaceman - Hardwell Cover Art

It deserves the number 1 spot...!

The best one from hardwell!

Awesome put at number 1

I like the bass

15 Adagio for Strings - Tiesto Adagio for Strings - Tiesto Cover Art

The fact that people would vote for Allan Walker- Faded over this shows that they are just fake mainstream fans of EDM who just listen to the top 40.

It's impossible to choose between this and Deadmau5, but this deserves at least a top 5 spot because without this, most of these other tracks wouldn't even have been here.

This should be at least #2. Tiesto at his absolute best.

This song must be at top5. What a masterpiece! The good old days of Tiesto...

16 Don't You Worry Child - Swedish House Mafia Don't You Worry Child - Swedish House Mafia Cover Art

Needs to be higher up. This song gives me hope.

Deserves a lot higher than 56

The song makes me dream

awesome

17 Disconnected - Pegboard Nerds Disconnected - Pegboard Nerds Cover Art

My favorite Monstercat song.

18 Kinetic - Jay Eskar Kinetic - Jay Eskar Cover Art

Jay Eskar is the artist who broke me out of the box that surrounds mainstream EDM and placed me in the lesser known artists' fanbase. I can't thank this exact song enough (especially because Future House is my favorite genre! )

19 Divinity x Technicolor x Innocence (Mashup) - Porter Robinson & Madeon

YEEES! So beautiful!

20 This Night - Filo & Peri This Night - Filo & Peri Cover Art
21 Gecko x Cinema - Elephante
22 Impact - Devinity x Paerila

Devinity's music is such an understatement when it comes to the best edm song ever. I know that the vocals aren't mainstream rapping, but that's what makes it the best, because the vocal talent fits perfectly with the lyrics, someone who's going through a crisis, and asking themselves questions about life itself.

23 Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Daft Punk Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Daft Punk Cover Art
24 Glue Gun - Fox Stevenson Glue Gun - Fox Stevenson Cover Art

This song had me laughing at the title. strange choice, but in the end it is one of the best liquicity singles I've ever heard, hands down.

25 Where Them Girls at - David Guetta Where Them Girls at - David Guetta Cover Art

This has been my favourite song of all time, since I was 12! I still love it today! Its upbeat and like in the music video, once it starts playing. You just can't stop dancing!

Kill me now...
