Top 10 Best Deadmau5 Songs

The Top Ten
1 Strobe

Includes quite possibly the greatest beat drop in the history of electronic music. An absolute masterpiece, the Mona Lisa of electronic.

This song is my favorite because whenever I'm sad, I listen to it. The rhythm makes me calm and happy. Being autistic, I get stressed easily, and this song always helped me. Joel's music has always made me happy. He is the person that makes me happy. He is going through depression and he needs some love. So here I am. I will give you love. Your music is really good and creative. You make me happy during depressing times. Thank you.

Song what is considered one of his greatest tracks. And by no kidding.
Starting with noises of early morning rises to an afternoon. Then you can feel the incoming of the late night and then you know when the times right, you let everything go. This night is unforgettable, beautiful melody of music, progressive sound. And when its over, you feel a freezing midnight with wind which make noises that makes you cold. Risky, beautiful art.

Listening to Strobe is like going on a journey. At first, there is uncertainty, even a hint of sadness, then the beat starts, bringing some hope. Then, of course, you are hit by the hook, which brings a feeling of fulfillment. This is perhaps the most brilliant piece of music Joel has been inspired with, both in terms of its beautiful structure, and how amazingly catchy the actual melodies used are.

2 Ghosts N Stuff

There are just so many good things about this song. Rob Swire's voice is positively magical, the beat can be construed as either happy or enigmatic, and the organ is just the most epic use of a more classical instrument I have ever heard. This song featured in the middle of his '09 '10 New Years Mix, and it got 10 minutes while most other songs got around 3 or 4. Simply one of the best electronic songs I have ever heard.

This was my first song I've listen when I realize that this song is EXTREMELY GOOD and I think that even though its not number 1, in my opinion that song is the future of the house music and deserve to be a golden hit for everyone that like this type of music. I like it, and I think people that start with this kind of music also at the beginning must listen to that song first.

This is the best song ever... I actually feel that this is much better than strobe.

The song by itself is beautiful. The synths tie together completely, and it makes me feel so good. The first time I heard it, I was like... This is one of the best songs I've ever heard.

The vocal mix, on the other hand, is SO GOOD! Rob Swine's voice fits in PERFECTLY! In this song.

Best deadmau5 song ever

Electronic definitely is not my kind of music. But when I listened to this song, I could tell it was something else. It is energetic and fun to listen to. Even if you don't like this genre of music, give this song a try, because it might turn you on to it...

3 I Remember

There's always that ONE song from a given artist that acts as the hook that makes you a fan. Numb by Linkin Park, Blow Me Away by Breaking Benjamin, Voodoo Child by Jimi Hendrix, Cosmic Love by Florence + The Machine, just to name a few. Never has a song so firmly hooked my attention and turned me into an instantaneous fan of an artist like I Remember did of deadmau5. Never has any piece of music caused me to experience such a sense of dream like nostalgia in such a beautiful way and for seemingly no reason. I love this song to such a degree that I actually try to avoid playing it very often so as not to burn myself out on it. If you're feeling sad or depressed, this song can, if you allow it, put you into a state of emotional neutrality and clarity.

No matter how young or old you are, some way, some how, in some shape or form, this song will connect and stay with you for the rest of your life. You may find yourself moving along to its catchy sound or even find yourself thinking of a memory that you will never forget. From its structure, chords, timeless lyrics and vocals, beat, everything about this song is just perfect. This is a 10 minute timeless masterpiece of the 21st century, that stay with ALL MUSIC until the end of time. This is definitely one of Deadmau5's best.

Not seeing this in first pains me. This song is truly exquisite; the greatest and most beautiful of beats, the most uplifting and pure lyrics, and the play count on my iPod in excess of 50 plays within the first week for which it was on it. Who knows how many there have been now?

It feels like a dream when you listen to it and when you have good headphones/earphones, you can't help but get into a trance-like state.

It's just so relaxing and perfect.

4 Raise Your Weapon

The best song off of 4x4=12. The drop is so badass, I literally got chills the first time I heard it. Greta does great on the vocals, and deadmau5's take on dubstep is pure perfection.

The whole song is set out perfectly, the slow piano at the start paired with the unbelievably amazing vocals of Greta Svabo Bech draw you in to hear more, then out of NOWHERE the drop hits you. A very unique and crazy idea but ended up being an absolute masterpiece. Should be second behind Strobe for sure!

The beginning of the song really hits you deeply, you get hooked to the song immediately, and when the drop at around 4 minutes happens, you just simple can't believe how amazing this song is, mix of Dubstep and House= Amazing!

This is deadmau5s' experiment with true dubstep, and he makes it a masterpiece. A definite standout from his usual electro style, and a good one too.

5 Aural Psynapse

This song is his later masterpieces and definitely his best. Being completely honest I think he may have outdone strobe with this one... The melody, the build up, the gradual progression throughout the song. This song is amazing.

I discovered this song when it was first leaked and from that moment, I knew this was his best track ever. No offense to Strobe, Ghosts & Stuffs and Raise Your Weapon but this is one level above all others (including other Dj's). Brilliant Masterpiece.

The song really does put you into a trance. From the basslines, the saw lead melody, and the mixing of the song is truly a work of art. To be honest, I like this song better than Strobe, which is no. 1 on this list. It's that good.

This song doesn't need any explanation. It's just perfect, pure emotion. When I listen this masterpiece I feel something indescribable, heart beating, barely breathing. To me, this is perfection

6 Some Chords

The chords are really quite simple, but it compounds on itself into really cool awesomeness. Honestly, that's just about the best way I can describe this song.

Every segment of this song, from beginning to end, is gold. Easily the best song on the album along with Animal rights.

It's a song with more heard as ghosts and stuff or strobe or animal rights or moar ghosts and stuf. I think it's the second most popular song of deadmau5.

Arguably Deadmau5's best song. It gives me the shivers from listening to this song. It's so potent, so vibrant...

7 The Veldt

Depending on your mix, this is over 8 minutes of calm and warm vibes with a steady beat that you can't help but start grooving to. This song does not feel 8 minutes at all, and I feel this has contention to be considered one of Deadmau5's best (Up there with Strobe, Some Chords, and Raise Your Weapon).

I was watching the livestream when Joel found Chris James's lyrics were e-mailed to him. He was skeptical that a product so quickly sent to him would be low-quality, but upon hearing the magnificent vocal work, his judgement turned to astonishment.
It was a beautiful revelation in Joel's history.

Incredibly emotional and feelgood/tragic duality vibe. Great lyrics by Chris James and really just an amazing track. Remember to listen to the whole 11 minute original mix which includes African drums. Fantastic.

If you don't know the story behind this, try watching the clip after reading about 'The Veldt' on a website like Wikipedia. Knowing the story it's based onn makes it real nice. I love the melody too, very relaxing.

8 Professional Griefers

There aren't many house songs where I can say that the vocals make the song better. I think most EDM fans can agree that they usually prefer the instrumental version. Even when I saw this song with the vocals I started to doubt that it would be good. But I don't regret listening to it. I encourage anyone to give this song a try, because the vocals made the song AMAZING. Really cool.

Wow tough decision as they are so many great songs to choose from. This song goes HARD. Hard core, amazing, I actually like the vocal, gerard way is great. I love how the chorus softens up a bit and how the song just builds. Especially leading up to the chorus. Ugh, amazing song, the beat is dope

I don't really into what I call "electronic house instrument" which is deadmau5's field. I'm too don't really into dj stuff, but this songs is sick! probably because there's vocal and gerard is the one who sing, so yeah this one is perfect.

Great party an dance song. I wish deadmau5 spent more time making songs with this kind of energy to them; the long ones are quite boring to me. This one goes hard the whole time.

9 Faxing Berlin

Faxing Berlin - it is timeless classic that made deadmau5 popular even more. It has that classic deadmau5 feel to it, amazing progression, great cowbell and with piano intro its even better. I highly recommend this song even if you don't like deadmau5. Its really worth to listen to. 10/10

The best song by far (the original mix of course). It has nearly everything you can ask for in a song! Way to go Deadmau5 I don't get why I just started listening to him this year!

One of the most calming epic from deadmau5... Honestly you can enjoy the tune for hours without getting bored or it becoming repetitive... This song gives me eargasms... Goosebumps... I can feel it pumping in my blood... For me its easily number 1

This may not be as well known as his other songs, but it is still a great song from his best album. This is one of his classics, and one of the first I heard by him.

10 There Might Be Coffee

The most serotonin I've ever gotten from a song. It starts of with this huge buildup, and when the drop hits for the first time, it's the most satisfying thing you'll ever experience. But, the second drop is even better. Do me a favor, and vote this song up to at least number ten. It's so close!

I was just scrolling through deamau5's songs, saw his new album, saw this song and said "That's a peculiar name".
I listened to the song and it was love at first sight. I may be biased for my absolute love of violins. The beat is nice, very deadmau5esque. There is also the constant drumming of the bass line. The harmony makes me feel like I'm underwater.

This is a career landmark for Deadmau5. In terms of quality, expect something similar to "Aural Synapse" and dare I say it, "Strobe. " Yeah... I cannot stress this enough... It is THAT good.

Up there with Strobe and Aural Psynapse as his most beautiful song. It's a wonderful arrangement. It will never top strobe buts its pretty awesome!

The Contenders
11 Bleed

I think this just surpassed Strobe as my favorite Deadmau5 song. It is difficult for me to explain the feeling that this song gives me, but I will try. I find it insane that a song with no lyrics can even make you feel this way. Bleed is one of those songs that makes you depressingly stare off into space and reevaluate your entire life. This song becomes even more emotional when you learn that it was created in memory of a fan of Deadmau5's who died in a car crash on the way to one of his shows. If I could describe this song in one word, it would be loss. This song is grieving, mourning, and missing someone, made into audio form. At least that's what it feels like for me.

There is no other artist like Deadmau5, this song is proof. He wrote this song for a fan who died on its way to see him. For me when I hear this song, I close my eyes and see through this life of mine. Next year I turn eighteen. I look back, and I remember (no pun intended) everything that has happened in my life. The things that have made me who I am today. It is hard to hold back the tears. When the song ends, I think of how lucky I am. Life has its moments of sorrow, yet it is filled with such joy. This is a good life we live. Thank You Deadmau5.

This is probably the most emotional song ever written by deadmau5. "Bleed" will move you into tears, and might change you in ways you cannot imagine. deadmau5 wrote this song for a fan who has died in a car accident shortly after attending one of his concerts. He poured everything into this song. I have cried listening to this. This masterpiece is very dark, but there is just this one spark of hopefulness that makes this song beautiful and powerful enough to rival Strobe.

I honestly believe of all his songs this is the only one that could surpass strobe. The raw emotion this portrays just astounds me. And it is such a shame that it is in 23. I cry when listening to this song. It brings back the times in my life where I have been at my lowest or at my peak, it shows me my goals and my achievements. So you can vote some chords or chtulu sleeps, but is that really his best work?

12 Arguru

His best original piece! Its different than his other songs as it is has this trancy feel and it sets a great mood to the song, as if you falling into an inevitable black hole. It's underlooked but you'll not regret listening to this.

Amazing song to listen to, it deserves far more attention than it gets at the moment. While it doesn't match up to something such as Strobe its still a very good song!

Feels like I'm at a rave but I'm in my bedroom when I listen to this song. Puts me in a different feeling, really is my favourite.

A beautiful song... Then completely switches into a really cool bassy song love it If I made a list... Would be in my top 3

13 Right This Second

This song has some of the sickest drops in any deadmau5 song... the beginning of the song has a long intro that is completely mesmerizing then drops straight into a reoccurring loop, followed by another nasty drop... This song is the best song ever by deadmau5, it has my vote for number 1!

People think that Right This Second is the FML of 4x4=12, and I hate to break it to them, but the only similarities between Right This Second and FML are the triplet hi-hats. Besides that, they're about as similar as Creep and Channel 42 are. Either way, it's good, but I just had to point out that this and FML are barely similar at all.

The most underrated song of deadmau5. You may not like it when you hear it first time, but give it a couple more chances and this will be the best song of deadmau5. The buildup is so cool and when it breaks, its completely pushes you off the edge.

Midway through this song, when the buildup finally climaxes, it sends shivers along my skin every time. It really does sum up why I love deadmau5.

14 Moar Ghosts 'n' Stuff

This song is just amazing. It does deserve to be higher on this list definitely, and I think this is a better version of Ghosts 'n' Stuff because it is more energetic and bouncy if you know what I mean.

Seems like a remix of ghosts n' stuff and is more energetic, but I love strobe it just takes to long to get into it, again both amazing songs!

I love this song, as well as the original, deserves at least top 5 on this list due to its hard good beat and constant foot stomping.

Excellent song to blast and rock out to while driving. I mean, it isn't the best song but it deserves to be higher up on the list

15 Channel 42

This song is diff then deadmau5's other songs... It's got the tune correct and what makes it diff is that it ain't an epic like others so deadmau5 has compressed all awesomeness 4.52 mins

I used my mixing software to mix this song with Skrillex and it turned out awesome. Love this song.

This is a great song and, even though the higher ones are good, I find this amazing.

This track is the best track of deadmau5..

16 FML

While Strobe, Ghosts 'n' Stuff, and I Remember deserve their places, this needs to have Raise Your Weapon or Aural Psynapse's position on the list. There is no deadmau5 song that's more energetic and aggressive than FML. For newer mau5 fans, give this a listen and let's bring it to the top.

How is FML not even in part 1?! It belongs in the top five!

True progressive House indeed! One of the best...

How is FML not in the top ten?!

17 Alone with You

I love this so much! This is the reason why I listen to Deadmau5! I have heard most of his stuff and its all amazing but none of it has come close to this. It just has these beautiful melodies that run through it, and it feels like isolation, but in a good way. Its just so satisfying. Its something to listen to when you feel stressed like after a hard day at school, and when you here it, you just feel isolated from all your troubles. My favorite from R.A.T..

Oh my god, words cannot describe the feeling I from the song. The quintessence of euphoria rushes into every molecule of my being as I crest the 16, 000 total plays mark. I haven't purchased a song in years, and even after having every version of the song in it's highest quality, I felt for the first time it was duty to give an artist my money.

Thank you you glorious angel Joel Thomas Zimmerman.

This track is quite different from he's other tracks. Alone with you may seem simple at first, but after some time you really experience the whole feeling of the track. This also make for a great driving track!

...I honestly like this song more than I Remember. I said it. Best off of Random Album Title, hands down. It's been eight years since this song was first released and it still isn't old.

18 Cthulhu Sleeps

The most epic track ever. It is like a movie- long, and iconic. However there are so many good deadmau5 tracks/songs that you can't really form a single list.

Awesome song. My favorite by far because of its unique beat drop. The chill section starting at 30 is simply amazing. It hypnotized you.

How is it not even in the top ten?! It's by far better than Strobe and Raise Your Weapon!

Defenetly a top 10 track. It's one of his best and it has the best build up in history.

19 Drop the Poptart

After Strobe, I thought deadmau5 could never blow me away like that again. I had never herd anything that wasn't from his studio albums, but when I listened to this, it put me in a trance! I was blown away once again. Had it been on While 1<2, it would have been his most famous album and Drop the Poptart would have been the next Strobe.

The vocals kinda ruin it, in my opinion it would be better without the vocals but great song otherwise.

I really do think that this song should be on while(1<2)... it would be a very good replacement for one of the depressing piano tracks. While the title may have nothing to do with the lyrics, it's still very good, give it a listen.

Should appear on While (1<2). One of the best Mau5 songs I've heard. Just spectacular.

20 HR 8938 Cephei

Great song. His best non album single by far! I don't know about you guys but I always get this image in my head of something on fire or something burning when I listen to it. I have no words. I can't describe it. All I can say is that its great!

You need a good stereo to truly appreciate this and I guarantee that every time you listen to this masterpiece you will hear something new!

This is the absolute epitome of electronic music journey for me, the those chords!

HR 8938 Cephei is Deadmau5's best work (in my opinion) but is too underrated. If you haven't heard it go check it out, if you like deadmau5's trance stuff that's got a kinda haunting feel to it listen to it.

This masterpiece has the most atmosphere of ANY Deadmau5 song. When I hear this song I get thrown into a universe where I'm lost and floating in space.

It's deep.

21 No Problem

Best song off W:/2016ALBUM/. The sample doesn't give much but it's so worth your time, one of the best. Ever. Great job on this track, deadmau5.

22 Animal Rights

Best use of musical instruments so far. Has an unprecedented amount of genius that makes this track one of Deadmau5's bests songs ever. Strobe was good, this was amazing.

Neat changes during the song! His use of musical instruments in this is AWESOME! This song will leave you in awe. This is what I'd have to say his best song.

Though you may not want to watch the music video, this song is epic! Quite a bit of diversity throughout the song. Amazing.

Best song he has every made. PERIOD. Friend introduced me to this track a few months ago, can't stop listening to it!

23 A City in Florida

This this song is $&@! Amazing! I've listened to all the top ten and this one is by far my favorite. Most songs are to slow for M. This song has a faster beat and a great song. Can't believe this song is so far down!

How is this not number 1? I've listened to 3 of Deadmau5's albums, and I have to say, this is my absolute favorite song. Listening to it on a great speaker system also enhances the quality, too.

BEST SONG EVER! I've already listen to at least 30 of they're songs and this one is by far the best! When will people learn!

This song is great! I love how the base makes the whole room vibrate! This song is the reason deadmau5 is one if ohe greatest producers of all time! And it deffinently deserves the number one spot.

24 8bit

This thing is called love on first sight! Its amazing! This is definitely one of the mau5's best songs and one of tjhe best songs I have ever seen

25 Clockwork

I don't know what it is about this song, but it's just amazing. Maybe it's some of the notes it uses, but it's just so hard to say what makes it so good.

This song got such an intense build up. Just lie down for 11 minutes and take a trip in your mind with this song.

This is simply perfection, how this is not higher on the list is beyond me.

Absolutely amazing! Seems like its always rising.
