Top 10 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 a unique song and has really incredible lyrics throughout, especially when he talks about his nephew.

This has been my favorite song for seven months straight. It's 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. Either way, it's great!

2 We are Young

I can relate to 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.

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.

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 "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 you're lost and alone, or you're sinking like a stone, carry on." 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.

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 they released is amazing, but this is my favorite.

5 Why Am I the One

I love this song. I 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 is their 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. It is definitely one of Nate Ruess's most emotional songs. Please do listen to it, you'll be doing yourself a huge favor.

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.

To all those people who 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.

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.

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

This song has everything people like in a song: catchy, meaningful lyrics, good vocals, amazing rhythm (you don't hear much of that these days), and a big finale.

To see it at ten is not where 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 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.

The Contenders
11 The Gambler

I agree that this song should get more attention than it does. It's a 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 grow up, I won't just buy you a rose, I will buy a flower shop so you will never be lonely.

This song sums up a love story about a man and a woman. Pretty cliché yet sweet.

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

12 All Alone

Why isn't this higher up? It is so good and has so much meaning.

The only reason it didn't go 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 are awesome. Not much to say besides it's a solid tune.

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 in the top five for me. It's number three 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. You'll really like it! I guarantee it!

This song is amazing. It really brings out the voices of both artists. It also has an amazing use of the piano and is absolutely amazing.

Best song ever!

14 I Wanna Be the One

This is the best song ever made. This song inspired me a lot to create music of this style: Art Rock and Symphonic Rock. Simply the best of Fun. The first album is the best.

I hope Nate makes more music like this. I 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 art is made of. I can't express my feelings very well about this, but it passions 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 are just amazing.

It hurts to think how underrated it is.

Why is this song not number 1? Amazing melody and lyrics.

My all-time favorite 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 appalling.

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.

18 Believe in Me
19 Sight of the Sun

Absolutely beautiful. 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.

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 Basket Case
22 Holiday
23 One Foot

Really love this song.

This should be on the top 5 list.

24 Barlights

Absolutely brilliant.

Listen to it live.

25 Stitch Me Up

I actually like We Are Young and Some Nights, but clearly, this song deserves to be at least in the top 10.

This is a really awesome song.

Awesome song. Love it. Should have been higher on the list.

Give it a try, you'll love it.

I love this song.

Why is it so low on this list?
