Best The Ink Spots Songs

Nothing like the Ink Spots! So warm and lovely and delicate. Nothing like The Ink Spots!

The Top Ten

1 I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire

Revitalized by an appearance in the video game "Fallout 3", "I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire" was the epitome of war era music, combining elements of war to describe the affection the singer feels for his lover.

It is such a beautiful song, so calming, so beautiful... I just want to fall into pleasant dreams when I hear this.

One of my personal favorite Ink Spots song to play on the piano!

"... I just want to start a flame in your heart."
Gorgeous. I love the Ink Spots.

One of the best my mom loved this group

I love this song I listen to it all the time it should be number two on the list

9 Street of Dreams
10 Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall / I'm Making Believe

The Contenders

The fourth true hit of The Ink Spots' young career, "My Prayer" made it up to #3 on the US Pop Charts in late 1939.

A follow-up to the first wave of Ink Spots music, "We Three" rose to the top of the US Pop Charts a year after "If I Didn't Care"

The first song to reach the top of the US Pop Charts after Jones' death and Watson's quitting, "The Gypsy" represented a new era of The Ink Spots with newcomers Herb Kenny, Bill Kenny's brother, and Billy Bowen.

"To Each His Own" proved that the chart-topping "The Gypsy", done after Jones' death and Watson's departure, were no fluke, reaching the top of the charts itself in 1946.
