Best Third Eye Blind Songs
Best song of the 90s in my humble opinion!
While it has an awesome, cheerful rhythm and sound, the lyrics are rather serious since it's about methamphetamine addiction - and I love how he pinpoints addiction, refusing to choose pseudo-profound lyrics.
"I want something else to get me through this semi-charmed kind of life" is simple whilst saying everything there is to say.
This song is just amazing. There are few that compare to it and its meaning is also awesome.
I love this song since I was a kid.
To me this is one of the best written portrayals of a foreseen breakup. The song builds perfectly as the doubt turns to certainty. The final climax, where the soft dive of oblivion turns to just... Oblivion gives me chills every time. Such an amazing song.

Absolute best. It is so good. It is the best song on their best album. Unless I am the first to vote, this song should be number 1. It is truly amazing. The chords and lyrics are awesome.
Although I wasn't surprised Semi-Charmed Life is number 1, this song is definitely first on my list. It's one of those songs where the passion is just overflowing throughout the song, and it really speaks to the listener on a personal level. Honestly can't stop listening to this song!
This song is so incredible. The meaning is very subjective. I think we can all relate to it! I listen to this song constantly and think it's their best song.
This song makes me think of my past life and the good memories of it.
Amazing..Beat is an excellent. Why is it low ranked..?
Anyone who has heard this song voted for it. By far their best. Simply raw emotion. This song is where it's at simply because of a lack of knowledge from most voters as to what the songs other than the main hits even sound like. Give this song a listen. You won't regret it
This is literally the perfect song and has changed my and I'm sure many other's lives. It encapsulates Jenkins as a person and TEB as a band. A true masterpiece
Just seeing the title of this song brings back the memory of the feelings it evokes, and it gives me chills.
"Have you ever felt like your life was in high gear, and you were right in the moment, and you were happy, and rolling into some glorious unknown future? And then have that all taken away? And then lived in sort of the post-period of that high? That's what it's like to live in the background."
Quote from 3EB singer stephan jenkins.
One of my favorite songs of all time. This song hits me hard, and is beautiful and powerful.
This reminds me of somebody that I used to be with. tHis is such a beautiful song.
Brings back nostalgia and warm and fuzzies like few other songs can!
I love this. The lyrics mean a lot to me.
Definitely my number 1
Just epic. Calms me down instantly.
Perfect song. That's it. Perfection.
Third Eye Blind at their best right here, this was the song that made me love them. I expected this to be at least top three.
Woah what the hell... This song is dope. Love it to its words... Deserves to be much higher
This song is painfully beautiful. Should be in the top 5.
This song has the best guitar riffs by far and if you don't find it catchy there is something wrong with you! It's great
The rawest song I've heard by an alternative band. Should shock some people who really listen to the lyrics. Backed by a beautiful mix of, guitar, piano and bass.
Such a powerful song. Don't know if it's their best but it's certainly my favorite.
Third eyes best in my opinion. Moody downbeat upbeat great lyrics my#1
Stephan Jenkins was qouted saying he believes this was the bands' best song (at the time only the first 2 albums were released). I agree with him because to me the lyrics are just that powerful. Everybody has slightly different interpretations but I think he's saying in a dark twisted way, being the one to help this girl overcome her abuse turns him on. ("My fingers catch the sparks at the thought of touching you while your wounded"). While I think the (much more common) topics covered in semi charmed life and jumper are executed better, I just can't imagine another song somehow touching on abuse and lust how wounded does. It's just that unique. #1 to me.
This song means so much more about violence and anti-bullying as most people suggest. It's also relatable to someone who is watching a friend go through troubles. For me, it's about accepting someone when they're most 'wounded'. It about loving someone even when they're hurt and waiting for them, hoping they will become their carefree selves again.
This is the band's greatest song. The lyrics combined with the musical prowess of the band, it's too powerful. The sound in this one is glory, people.
Why is this song so far down? It is amazing!
Such an underrated track with a fantastic groove. Give this track some love please.
Come on People, this should be at top 5 at least.
Their best song by far... Also how is Graduate #17?
One of the best songs I've ever heard, it's 2nd on my most played list
This is their best song by far. Come on the line "and we laughed in the night and I felt alright" is the best line ever. An all around great song for third eye blind. Thank yo
Beautiful lyrics that are beautifully sung with music that matches the feel of the song. Definitely in my top ten.
