Best Fun. Songs

American indie pop band based in New York City that was formed by Nate Ruess.
The Top Ten
1 Some Nights

I heard this song in Hollister in late 2011 and immediately loved it. The beginning sent chills up my spine the first time I heard it. It is truly song a unique song and has really incredible lyrics the whole way through, especially when he talks about his nephew. This has been my favorite song for 7 months straight. Nits amazing!

I love this song! When I first discovered it I listened to it pretty much every chance I had for a whole week! It makes me feel so good, and understood, if that makes sense? :p Either way it's great!

My anthem! This song just makes you want to get up and dance. It makes you want to get up and do something, find love, or find a new love. It's just so amazing. No doubt this is number one!

Love this song! It really expresses feeling and passion and tells me a lot about the singer.
Listen to it and reply to my post if you want a record deal and a chance to meet Fun.

2 We are Young

I can relate with this song so well it's amazing! I was once at a park with some people who turned out to be stoned. I left the park since I wanted no part in that little group and I swear, in my head, I could hear the opening lyrics, "Give me a second I.. I need to get my story straight. My friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the Empire State." This song has a special place in my mind :D

I love the first two lines:
"Wait a second there, I need to get my story straight...
My friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the Empire State. "
And the singer isn't THAT ugly...

This song is a fabulous one. My best friend gave it to me, and ohmygod, I just couldn't STOP listening to it! I'm a total dubstep freak, but when the "beat drops" in THIS song, it leave me... Mesmerized. Amazing composition.

I heard this song on VH1 channel and it was so awesome blossom to sing along with them, the lyrics is supersonic...
I like the way the lead singer looks when he sings...

3 Carry On

This song is such a powerful song, and I think it is the top song Fun. has made! The whole message of just Carry On is so powerful, and I could belt this song out all day. My favorite lyric is "And it's nice to know, when I was found for dead, I was found and don't roam these streets I am not the ghost that you are to me!" I also like "When your lost and alone, or your sinking like a stone, carry on." Like how powerful is that? The overall message of this song is so wonderful, and I think it should be the number one song on this list. Thank you so much to Fun. for writing this wonderful song that lifts up my life and makes my day every time I hear it. Thank you. Carry on.

The first time I heard this song several years ago it was instantly my favorite song. Years later nothing has changed. Most beautiful song I've ever heard. This band stole my heart once I started listening to them after hearing this song; my favorite songs are now Carry On, Stars, Out On The Town, All Alright, and We Are Young. This band is amazing.

This has to be the most uplifting and encouraging fun. Song other than Take Your Time (which has a brilliant acoustic version by the way). The guitar in this song is also very good! This along with Ruess' amazing voice along with the background vocals in the chorus make this song their best in my opinion.

This song is incredibly cool, emotional, and creative. It may start soft and quiet but when it hit the chorus and guitar solo, it blows everything out of the water. There is not one other Fun. Song like it and it is one of my favorite songs of all time. We Are Young was also extremely great.

4 All the Pretty Girls

Best Fun. Song of all time. You can't beat it. It has a great tone and chorus, and Nate Ruess sounds great on this song. I love the video too. It's really funny. Overall, it's amazing. Go Fun.!

Has a fun beat and is in my top 5 of Fun.

All the music released are amazing. But this are my favorite hudsaoihudsaoi

So damn catch

5 Why Am I the One

I love this song. Was about to change the station on the radio and was arrested by the song with my hand hovering in the air. One word, wow! I love the group and this song best.

This is my favorite song. I always listen to it whenever I can. Wish I did this for my school assembly. Y'all should listen to it and try to understand the meaning. It's such a lovely song.

This is the best song ever. If you listen to it, it has so much meaning, definitely one of nate reusse's most emotional songs, please do listen to you, you'll be doing yourself a huge favour :P

This may not be fun's best song... But it certainly deserves a spot in the top 5 or 6...
Please guys.. Listen to this song and vote for this song..

6 Walking the Dog

Love this song. It's so catchy! The music video is amazing as well. It inspired me to try some of my own music video-covering.

I wish "I Wanna Be The One" could have made it on this list.

They made a sad song into a happy one! It rocks!

7 Be Calm

This song is amazing! It should be ranked second and Carry On should be ranked first. I love Fun., they are really good and I made my shoes to look almost like the ones he wore in the music video for Carry On they look so cool. And to all those people whom change the words when they sing any of his songs that isn't right you have no reason to change what he wrote even if he says a bad word it is still his song you shouldn't change it.

Be calm.
I know you feel like you are breaking down.
I know that it gets so hard sometimes,
Be calm.
Take it from me, I've been there a thousand times.
You hate your pulse because it thinks you're still alive
And everything's wrong
It just gets so hard sometimes
Be calm.

These lyrics are powerful and speak volumes. Amazing Song with Great LYrics

I love this song. It really has helped me with my move from Alaska to Florida, and it has a really nice tune. This song is also amazing on the violin, I just wish I had Nate, Jack, and Andrew performing it before my very eyes.

Numbers 1, 2, and 3 are way too overplayed and overrated. Be calm is such a great opening track to Aim and Ignite. It has powerful lyrics and his voice is just incredible. This is what pop songs should sound like.

8 At Least I'm Not as Sad (As I Used to Be)

This song has every thing people like in a song catchy good meaningful lyrics good vocals amazing RHYTHM (don't hear much of that these days) and a big finally to see it at ten not were I would put it unless I saw take your time (coming home)

I really love fun.'s songs... They're crazy, wild, and FUN! :)) But, I love this song the best.

9 C'mon

COME ON ONLY 9%!? This is one of the best songs ever made in the history of Fueled by Ramen maybe even in the world!

This song is very catchy, how come it is not in the first place?

I'm listening to this now! I'm getting chills

10 Take Your Time

If you look at the lyrics, this song is clearly one that the singer cares about. Great song too!

This song is so dynamic and such a moving piece of music. It completely takes me by the end.

The most emotional song of Fun! Nothing more to say.

This song is long, but the feel of a garage jam song makes me love it

The Contenders
11 The Gambler

I agree that this song should get more attention that it does. Beautiful song- well written and really heartfelt. This song came on without me really paying attention to the lyrics, but when I did... Wow

Honestly, this is the best 'love song' from fun.

I swear when I grew up.
I won't just buy you a rose,
I will buy a flower shop
So you will never be lonely.

This song sum up a love story about man and woman
Preety cliche yet sweet

Although it's not one of my absolute favourites, I still love the lyrics, and I love the way the piano and guitar melodies are combined, especially towards the end.

This is definitely a way better song than all the pretty girls in my opininon and its way underrated for some reason. It's a wonderful song.

12 All Alone

Why isn't this higher up? It is so good and has so much meaning. The only reason that it didn't higher is because the radio stations overplay the top songs!

Definitely doesn't have the attention it needs. Catchy and beautiful.

The drums and piano is awesome, not much to say besides a solid tune.

Most amazing song I have heard in a long time! Why wasn't it a hit?

13 Just Give Me a Reason

This song is a collaboration with the artists fun. And P! Nk. It is an extremely catchy song, and I think if anyone reads this, you should just listen to it. Once. It won't hurt, and if you don't like it just click away!

This is like the top five for me its number 3 after we are young and be calm this should really be up in the top five so if you haven't heard the song you should youll really like it! I Guarantee it!

This song is amazing. It really brings out the voice of both artists. It also has an amazing use of the piano and is absolutely amazing. BEST SONG EVER!

Superb song... With a great tone & music... I loved it more than tonight we are young! And of course... Awesome lyrics... A catchy song!

14 I Wanna Be the One

This is the best song ever made, this song ispired me a lot to create music of this style: Art Rock, Symphonic Rock. Simply the best of Fun. the 1st album is the best, hope Nate made more music like this, hope someday I can make music like this and have a song as wonderful as "I Wanna Be the One" and "at Least I'm Not As Sad (As I Used to Be)" this is real art, what what the art is made of, I can't expresss my feelings very well about this, but this passionates me so much

Better than most, better than most.

15 Benson Hedges
16 All Alright

The most beautiful song they ever wrote. The lyrics coupled with Nate's vocals is just amazing. It hurts to think how underrated it is.

Why is this song not number 1? Amazing melody and lyrics. My all time favourite fun. Song!

17 Out On the Town

What is this doing at #23?! This is by far one of the best songs on Some Nights, if not the best. The production is amazing, and the fact it was only a bonus track is an appaling thing.

Best song on Some Nights by far, the lyrics are amazing and that chorus is what makes this band so special.

My friend said she didn't like fun. I played her this song.

It's one of my favorites! Definitely one of the most meaningful and nice songs from them :)
I think the lyrics is so lovely!

18 Believe in Me
19 Sight of the Sun

Absolutely beautiful
I mean the lyrics are utterly poignant

'for everyone I'm out to prove wrong, you keep the light on.'
'for once, there is nothing up my sleeve, just some scars from a life that used to trouble me.'

This song is awesome, just the greatest. I listen to it always, my ipod is always on repeat so I can always listen to this... Basically.. This is one of the best songs ever...

One of their prettier songs, feels like a Part. 2 to Out On The Town. Again, cinematic lyrics and a cute story and character development.

Definitely deserves a higher position in the list! The tone of this song gives me the chills and the lyrics is simply mesmerizing!

20 Walking the Dog II

So sad, heartbreaking even. Really goes to show how a song can change meaning by switching instruments and the beat.

21 Light a Roman Candle With Me

Why is this at 25? This song is absolutely adorable.

22 One Foot

Really love this song. This should be on the top 5 list.

This song is so underrated.

One of my top 3 love it!

23 Basket Case
24 Nothing Without Love

I know this is a Nate Ruess song and not a FUN. song, but I had to put it on here because how changing it is

25 Barlights

Absolutely brilliant. Listen to it live
