Top 10 Best Kid Cudi Songs

The Top Ten
1 Pursuit of Happiness

Pursuit of Happiness just makes me want to go out there and live life. The raw emotion Cudi puts in is extraordinary. It truly makes me happy to listen to this song. It brings back so many memories.

No matter what mood I'm in, it always puts a smile on my face. This is the only song I can listen to over and over again.

Love this song. Absolute best. Cudi is always spitting straight fire. His songs always get me thinking.

2 Soundtrack 2 My Life

He is the most real rapper in the game today! Every time Cudi raps, he pours his soul into every line. He is someone that a listener can cling to. I am a fan of every Cudi song ever and I hope his Grammy is on the way!

This song has had me hooked since I first heard it years ago. The raw emotion that you feel in his voice is almost superhuman, as if it really comes from the moon. No song will ever touch me so emotionally and purely. Perfection.

Depressing, yet upbeat all at the same time! I love how he is a rapper that is not afraid to express real, raw feelings within one of his songs. Life sucks, and he lets his fans know he is no exception to this.

3 The Prayer

We played this at my 15-year-old son's funeral. When we were looking for songs to play at his funeral, my daughter played this for me, and even though we were in the middle of a store, I could not stop crying.

We played it during his slideshow, and it just had so much meaning.

I like a lot of Kid Cudi songs, but this song is my favorite. While listening to this song, you will feel as though you are riding on a cloud.

This song is not just my favorite Cudi song but one of my favorite songs all around. The Prayer is very catchy with a nice beat and great meaning.

4 Day 'N' Nite

This song is way better than all the others. It deserves to be up at the top. It's got a really good beat. Did you know that the Crookers Remix of this song got so many more hits than the original?

"Day 'n' night, the lonely stoner seeks to free his mind at night." It's the only good Rap/Hip Hop song that's about a loner personality (except for a few Eminem songs). It's a song I personally relate to more than any other Rap/Hip Hop styled song.

Not that I'm saying it's the best rap song of all time, it's just one of my favorites.

5 Mr. Rager

One of the first Cudi songs that I listened to. Now, I listen to a lot of his songs, and this is still my favorite song by him. Marijuana, Scott Mescudi vs. The World, Marijuana, Soundtrack To My Life, and Solo Dolo were pretty close, though.

This is an epic song, and Kid Cudi did a really good job writing it. Way to go!

This is the first song I heard from him, and I have loved him ever since. I love all of his songs, and it's hard to pick my favorite one. But I think it's safe to say that this song will remain at the top.

There wasn't a single song of this caliber on Indicud. Cudi is one of the most relatable artists in the music industry. This song cements his place in my mind as one of the most versatile and talented musicians in hip-hop.

6 Just What I Am

"Ain't no such thing as Satan, evil is what you make it." This song is definitely one of my favorites of Kid Cudi. It has a sort of aroma that just makes everyone feel good.

For those who are asking if he quit smoking, I heard that this song isn't really about him getting high but about him wanting to get high but expressing how he can't due to wanting custody over his child. He has to take drug tests, meaning he has to be "clean."

Anyways, I love this song, and it has a lot of good meaning to it, just like all of his music.

7 Man on the Moon

This song's message can be related to by everyone. Just being yourself and doing what you do is a great message, and the beat is trippy but at the same time relaxing. This song makes me happy and sad at the same time. It's truly a work of art.

Greatest song. Just be different like Cudi and look what can happen. He overcomes adversity and shows that you can do anything you want no matter what haters say.

Probably the most insightful and dream-inspiring song written in the modern era by any hip-hop artist. Awesome.

8 Cudi Zone

This was the first song that gave meaning to all the thoughts in my mind. It made me see a pattern and understand myself better. Thanks for inspiring me to be a writer!

Amazing song. This was a kid's favorite song at my school before he was killed in a car crash. That just gives it so much more meaning.

Cudi Zone is exactly what Mr. Cudi is all about. He used to always be zoning and soaring, and he portrayed it through this song.

9 Up, Up and Away

This is the kind of music you can listen to, and it makes you happy. He's an amazing rapper, singer, and songwriter, and the lyrics relate to life.

It always cheers me up when I come home from school. It just makes me happy, no matter what. It's like there's some sort of magic in the song. But anyways, I think this should be the best.

This song always gets you in a good mood, and it is pretty catchy.

10 Erase Me

I could listen to this song over and over again and not get tired of it. This is the only song that I can do that to, showing the greatness of Kid Cudi. With Kanye West and Kid Cudi together, there is nothing like this song.

Love how lighthearted this song is compared to a lot of Cudi's others. He's almost having fun singing this, it seems like.

I keep on running, keep on running, and nothing helps. I can't get away from you.

Love this song. It is awesome!

The Contenders
11 Marijuana

Should definitely be in the top 10. It really shows Cudi's passion for marijuana. Heck, he has angels in the background of the song. Very catchy, memorable, definitely top ten material.

Awesome music. I'm in love with this song.

I don't smoke much, but I love this song!

12 50 Ways to Make a Record
13 Heart of a Lion

This song is so underrated, it's so good. Really should listen to it. I'm listening to it right now.

Amazing song, great beat, and good lyrics. A Cudi track to pick you up when you're feeling down. Definitely one of his best.

He's saying how strong he is and what he can take on and go through. One of my favorites!

14 Memories

This may be David Guetta's song, but who is the man with the cool voice? Totally shocked by the absence of this song!

15 That New New

I love this song. It never gets old. It doesn't quite have a meaning, but it's a good song to listen to and get you pumped for the day ahead.

This is one of my favorite songs ever and definitely my favorite Cudi song. Should be at least top three.

I love this song! It's so original, my favorite Cudi sound. You rarely hear something this quirky.

16 Reborn
17 Embrace the Martian

One of my favorite Kid Cudi songs! The way the song makes me feel good, especially when I'm a little buzzed.

18 Heaven at Night

One of my favorite songs of all time. I listen to it every time I need to relax with some friends. It always sets the mood.

Wow! This is 67th? Should be at least top 20.

19 Already Home
20 Down & Out

Incredible intro and continuous beat - a different tempo than most of his songs in the sense that Cudi is more aggressive in his tone of voice, and the pace has an edge to it. Love it.

Crazy beat. Lyrically relatable to anyone. One of the lesser-known songs if it is not higher up on this list.

Awesome song! Should be way higher.

21 King Wizard

How is this not higher? Probably one of the best on his new album!

How is this song not given enough credit? Should be top 10.

Why is this song not in the top 5? It's his best.

22 Mojo So Dope

After not listening to Cudi for years, this song popped in my head one day. That's how dope it is.

An unexplainably perfect song. Incredibly catchy, unique, and the lyrics have such a positive vibe.

How is this not in the top 10? If you don't vibe to this, something's wrong with you.

23 Love

I have been listening to Cudi for years and somehow didn't come across this gem until a couple of weeks ago. Already one of my favorites. Classic Cudi message. Gives me the chills every time.

Hella underrated just because it was only a SoundCloud release.

Extremely underrated. Personally, it's his best song.

24 Trapped in My Mind

Cudi's song of acceptance - the two albums ("Man On The Moon," "Man On The Moon II") were both about fighting and the struggles Kid Cudi had to deal with every day. The closing song of the second album, the finale, explains how "it's not that bad at all."

This is an awesome song and has a really dreamy beat. It makes you think, especially if you're kind of an introvert. This song can really get to you.

25 Ghost

This should be in the top ten. One of my favorite songs and I'm one of the biggest Cudi fans!

This song should be top ten. You're all sleeping on a masterpiece.
