Top 10 Best MGMT Songs

The Top Ten
1 Electric Feel

Love this song, it's just so catchy and cheery. Makes me smile every time I listen to it. It just puts me in a really good mood! I think anyone who doesn't like it is strange. Give it a listen, you should understand what I'm saying after you have give it a listen a few times!

It's my favorite MGMT song so far. Its really good, I'm addicted to it, I can listen to it like all day. I don't see how kids is their #1 song, don't get me wrong, that song is good too, this song is better in my opinion.

It's so sexy and I fell in love after one listen! This is definitely the best. Andrew's voice sounds beyond sexy and I love every bit of it. Plus on the album cover he's shirtless!

2 Kids

This song is so purely beautiful. It starts out with a seemingly cheery tune, but kicks in, revealing a poignantly masterful song. It weaves four different melodies together to work as one and features meaningful lyrics with a truly passionate voice. This song doesn't come with an "in-your-face" drum track either, but instead gets your foot tapping with a simple yet perfect beat. I've never heard a better song in my life, and have listened to it maybe a thousand times, back to back, and it's still as if I'm hearing it for the first time. I don't know of many other songs that can create this feeling.

Best of all songs to me, actually I don't like any other song by then but this beautiful song for some reason. every other song sounds quite random and a little meaningless but this song has rhythm and surpasses all randomness and delivers an awesome beat with pretty good lyrics!

3 Time to Pretend

This should be the top one. Amazing song that gently drags you across the universe. It is absolutely an amazing masterpiece and a light in the darkness of what modern music has become. MGMT should be remembered as one of the greatest musicians that ever existed. Their music completely changes my mood and uplifts my day. It makes me excited and ready to live my life and is just unbelievably great on so many levels. This is an uttermost fantastic song and should be #1 on every list of songs ever.

I love the part where they talk about missing family and home, almost as if they wish they could take it all back, but then reconcile the whole situation as being inevitable: "But there is really nothing, nothing we can do. Love must be forgotten, life can only start anew."

Absolutely amazing lyrics, they give me goosebumps every time I hear it. It rare to find a song that can be replayed an infinite amount of times with out getting old; this is one. Keep being you MGMT!

4 Flash Delirium

This is by far the most beautifully crafted song they have ever written. Lyrically, and musically. It blends so many different genres in just four minutes and twenty three seconds. I hear psychedelic, sixties rock, surf, electronica, and even punk rock (last couple of seconds). I can't believe this is #6. Yeah, it's "different" and not as catchy as "kids", I personally think it is way better than kids and should be #1. It is a far more technical and enjoyable song.

The riff and the tune of the song are as mesmerizing as the name of the song is unique! You will be transported to another world... Few songs imprint themselves into your memory as this one will. Of that much I'm certain!

This song is a masterpiece and is in my opinion the best modern psychedelic rock song. Absolutely brilliant!

My favorite MGMT song. Masterpiece. Really cements them artistically for me as one of the best musical artists I've heard. This coming from a big time Pink Floyd fan. To me, this song is EPIC in the way that Echoes from Pompeii (Pink Floyd) is.

5 Siberian Breaks

At first, the song seems to be a song about, well, surfing. Then you get into it. This song is BY FAR the best MGMT song, and that's saying something, them being one of the best artists of the decade (s).
"But someone must still eat the steaks, even if they're tough, spending the day, chewing the fat, floating away isn't rough but its not enough." Still one of the greatest quotes in a song. The way the acoustics work in the favour of the song, the about 7 "parts" of it, makes it feel more than an 11 minute song, more 5 songs that are each 2 minutes, hands down, this is the best MGMT song and one of the best of all time.

When I first saw this song, I was sceptical that a song that was a full eleven minutes long could be any good. However, Siberian Breaks took my expectations and shattered them. At so many points this song becomes so much more than just a piece of music, this is a track to be felt just as much as it's heard. The best song by one of the best bands, this song is a high point in modern music.

6 Weekend Wars

The smell of battle, and the feeling of strength, helplessness, serenity, sorrow, self-rejuvenation, and a dreamful speculation all in 4 minutes.

Every morning I listen to this song, I wake up with an overwhelming need to attack my day with strength, precision, and he confidence that no one can get in my way.

Masterpiece. That is what this song is. The instrumentals, electronic influences, and summeresque vocals from Andrew and Ben mesh together seamlessly to leave you with a breathless feeling. I can't help but press rewind when I get to the end of this song. Glorious, radiant, and classic. Perfect 10 of 10.

Has such a raw, yet electric feel, more than any of their other songs. It's the one song I show people who are new to the band because it really has such a perfect balance of what MGMT is all about in the first place, but still is catchy enough to hold strong on its own.

7 Alien Days

This is the best song they've done, knowing them since the beginning. The way the vocal melody works with the chord progression is phenomenal and the lyrics are mesmerizing. And the production is pristine (not to say it usually isn't). I feel like I'm going on a ride every time I listen to it. They seem to be at their peak at this point.

The new album may be disappointing but this track is amazing! Very creative that drifts you off into some sci fi world. I feel like drifting off into deep space just listening to it!

I love every mgmt song, but this one is arguably their best. while the high quality of each song makes it hard to have a definite #1, I do believe this one should be a contender. my personal favorite

8 Of Moons, Birds & Monsters

The bassline is AWESOME. The vocals are totally spooky. The lyrics have a hidden meaning to it that's leaves you wondering. The drums aren't great, but the harmonies, and the arrangement. It brings me to a whole other place when I hear it. The guitar and bass riffs are awesome. Totally different. The guitar solo is great. And it starts you off getting pumped, it pumps you up, then just calms you down. And leaves you in this like whole other world. Kids is overrated. From a total MGMT fan, this song rocks.

I did not have high hopes for this band past Electric Feel, but this song is mezmerizing. Puts them in a tough spot though, because you can't do tongue in cheek when your songs are this GD good. There's no joke here, even though the words are nonsense, the song itself is one of the best I've ever heard. If you like legendary guitar solos listen to it live, it's unreal.

The Whole Album is amazing, however this song is by far one of the best. The lyrics are very thought provoking and are executed with awesome harmonies and music. Id recommend that you read the lyrics as you listen and just enjoy as your mind tries to decipher how deep MGMT are in the masterpiece

9 Congratulations

I love this song so much. It feels nice to hear a "Congratulations, " doesn't it? The video is great, the sound is great, the lyrics are great. I don't know if this is definitely number one for me, but it's at least in the top three! Love MGMT.

Greatest song in the world! This band is highly underrated and more bands like this should be noticed! It's a new type of music revolving, and this is the best of the beginning! The lyrics, the beat his voice. Amazing band and song!

Any song about that can capture the hard path to being your true self in a melodic fashion is always going to rank high not only for a bands top 10 list but all time top 10 lists. Congratulations... On making this tremendously insightful song

10 She Works Out Too Much
The Contenders
11 It's Working

"It's working in your blood/But you know it's not the same as love/Love, it's only in your mind/Not your heart"
Need I say anymore? The lyrics are phenomenal. It's an amazing opening for Congratulations. It gets you hooked.

One of the best songs starts off slow, then it explodes into nostalgic pleasure. Wish they explored this type of music style more often.

While the s/t album was disappointing, Alien Days is such a haunting, mysterious song that I have to give it credit over anything song they ever releases. It's like a dream (or nightmare) of the 70s mixed where the movies and T.V. shows about alien become real.

12 Song for Dan Treacy

This one needs more praise. In a way, it is somber but quick. It is the perfect listen at any time, and is really just a superb track. Way too often overlooked. Needs to be in the Top 10.

13 When You Die

This is their best song. NO QUESTION! This is the first song I heard and this made MGMT one of my favorite bands. I love the video too. It's one of the most unique music videos I've seen. The best to play to your enemy.

14 The Youth

This song made me fall in love with MGMT. The first time I ever heard it was when I was watching The Kids are Alright and I fell in love with The Youth the first second the song came up. It's even my most played song on my iTune list and for me it's probably the best song in the universe.

Not my favorite by them, but this is really a beautiful yet underrated song and one of my favorite music videos too!

The youth is by far the greatest musical piece created by MGMT. Its slow, yet fast. It is a beautiful song.

15 Little Dark Age

It gives me a nostalgic feeling I have never felt before. No matter how much pain there will be from blasting this song in my ears, it would not hurt to listen to it again.

As good if not better than anything they've released "pop" sounding.

16 Hand It Over
17 Your Life is a Lie

A fun, funky and upbeat track. It's repetition is what makes this song so irresistible.

18 Future Reflections

If you watch the video (not the official one there is no official video) it is such nostalgia if you watched it when it came out. this was the first song I ever heard by them and will be one of my favorites by them. I started listening to them when I was in 3rd grade (now in 8th grade). I remember when this song first came up on YouTube my dad had it playing and I remember watching the video with him and saying that it was freaky but good music. ill always remember these guys. I may haven't listened to these guys in 4 5 even probably 6 years but that doesn't stop me from ever not likeing them. this is my personal and most memorable song by mgmt to me and one of the first bands I ever listened to were these guys. thank you mgmt.

This is my personal favorite it's not their most known song but I feel it's the best. The beginning is not a good representation of the whole song and you have to listen to the whole song to appreciate it

19 Indie Rokkers

The only down side is I have to turn it down when my mom comes by because it gets real awkward real fast. But legit, I have a playlist of all of MGMT's songs and I have 10 duplicates of this song to make sure it plays often

Indie Rokkers might be one of my top 10 songs of all is just something about the beat, lyrics, and the melody that brings it all together. I love this song!

20 Introspection

Love this song! They took Faine Jade's song from the 60's and brought it into the future! Such a great sound, and with such deep meaning.

Definitely one of their top ten.

21 The Handshake

This song is always "up there" but I have yet to see it where it should be: Number 1. Too often I see Time To Pretend, Kids, and even Of Moons, Birds and Monsters topping these lists. Not to insult any of those songs (which are all awesome as well), but The Handshake is usually overlooked, and is NEVER given the credit that it undoubtably deserves. This song is masterfully crafted, from the beginning bell tones, to the echoing and fading chants. It is easily my favorite MGMT song, and is truly a work of art. This is one of those tracks where you wonder how in the hell they came up with it. It stands out and holds its own on one of my favorite albums of all time, Oracular Spectacular.

It reminds me of my childhood. My sister and I always made secret handshakes when we were kids. Also, I used to sit outside by myself for hours, waiting for my parents to pick me up from school. This is reflected when they say "I was a loner, I was just waiting by myself. " It just has a sentimental meaning for me that no other song does. I love it to death.

22 Someone's Missing

Number 46, seriously? This song is great. Easily in the top 10.

23 Destrokk

I guess people didn't ask enough questions. Because they don't know that this is the best MGMT song

24 Pieces of What

This song stirs emotions I only thought the Hunger Games could reach, in my opinion. The song reminds me of the Beatles because of the background music. I had avoided listening to it at first because I didn't know what it was and only wanted to listen to Kids. I believe this song is extremely underrated and very overlooked. This could be my favorite MGMT song of all time.

Andrew's voice in this song is so beautiful. It takes you to a nostalgic better place you used to dream of. I can't forget about the acoustic guitar either, so soothing. Forever an MGMT fan.

Beautiful song by a beautiful singer, Andrew's voice is so clear and full of emotions, love it!

25 Metanoia

This song is my number one. Give it a listen, be patient this one takes you for a ride... ENJOY!

It's more than just a song, definitely MGMT's best musical accomplishment.

This song is just epic, there's really no other like it.
