The Top Ten
1 Yonkers

I admit, this is the first song that I listened to from OF. It got me into their music. But let me just say that this is overrated.

Awesome beat, killer raps, and major dissing. All the qualities of an awesome song.

Killer disses, awesome beats, and great stuff compared to the rest of that album.

2 Bastard

This song was what kicked off his career, having the deepest meaning and expression of himself. What I respect about him is that he is open and doesn't hide much from the public. He simply does not care.

GOLF WANG.

Dark as Tyler can ever get, with the occasional realism to accentuate it. Plus, there's a dope piano riff matched with a good beat.

Deep lyrics, catchy beat, and the deep-voiced therapist. What's not to love?

3 Sandwitches

Contagious and honestly same with Tron Cat! Easily two of his best songs!

4 Rusty

This is probably one of my favorite verses of his. He gets into such detail about how everyone just wants him to put out songs, despite whatever he's feeling.

Amazing beat, amazing verses by Tyler, Earl, and Domo. Easily one of his best songs.

This was just magic. Thank you for this list. This song made me become a Tyler fan.

5 IFHY

First things first, the lyrics and concept behind the song are almost complete nonsense. The only thing relating it to reality is that it speaks of a guy's personal struggle, confused with deciding what his own feelings are for a girl, reaching nearly the point of insanity. I get it, but it's nonsense.

Other than that, the beat is good. Tyler, the Creator is a crappy rapper (little complexity, spits nonsense), but an above-average composer (if that's what you want to call it). This shows a different side of Tyler's producing, where he actually looks to balance acoustics, sound effects, and bass. It works in this song, even though it's still pretty funky.

6 911 / Mr. Lonely

Truly beautiful song with a great guest appearance from Frank Ocean and a fantastic verse from Tyler.

This is one of my favorite songs of all time.

7 Domo 23

Tamale and Jamba should be up here too, but honestly, the only reason that Yonkers is number one is because of people who don't actually listen to Tyler or Odd Future.

It's got a sick beat, amazing rapping, and great lyrics. Got to be at 1. Tyler, the Creator is the best new rapper.

This song is one of the best I've heard from him. It goes hard, and the beat is sick.

8 Gone, Gone / Thank You
9 Colossus

Sounds good and tells an escalating story about a fan being obsessed with him.

This may not be Tyler's best song, but it has lyrics that go deep and are catchy!

Probably one of the most meaningful songs from Wolf, if not his whole career.

10 Assmilk

This, Orange Juice, and Bastard are the best. Yonkers is overrated.

The best song. The lyrics are amazing! Tyler and Earl created a masterpiece.

Nice beat, good flow. I like the idea of the back and forth between Tyler and Earl.

The Contenders
11 She

Everything about this song is amazing. It expresses the honest thoughts a lot of us have sometimes.

The combination of Frank and Tyler in this song is amazing. This is by far my favorite song of Tyler.

This was the first Tyler, the Creator song I listened to, so I think it was one of his best songs.

12 2seater

Should be way higher in my opinion. Even T says it's one of his best songs he has ever made.

13 Who Dat Boy

Honestly, I like the beat and the way his voice sounds. I think it could be number 1. This is probably my favorite song from him.

This is a really good song. I don't understand why it's ranked 21!

14 See You Again

Beautiful harmonies in this song. It's about seeing your lover whenever you close your eyes, but this song always appears when I close my mind.

This is one of Tyler's best songs from Flower Boy.

This song is beautiful. It's the pinnacle of his music for me.

15 Orange Juice

I don't think enough people have heard this song, but they should. It was one of the first Odd Future songs I heard and still one of my favorites.

The piano is catchy and different from most hip hop. One of my all-time favorites.

Honestly underrated but some of Earl's best lyrics. Same for Tyler.

16 November
17 48

This is a brilliant track, one of the best on Wolf.

Great story behind the song and such a beautiful song overall.

18 Boredom

Too relatable to be so low. Sounds beautiful, great hook. Tyler sings. Amazing.

19 Seven

You have got to be kidding me! This song was one of the BEST on Bastard.

Come on, man. This song is better than most of the songs on Goblin.

20 Tron Cat

Incredible, this was the first song that turned me onto Tyler. Tyler truly is my idol. He is sick and twisted, hurt and angry, and mostly devoted.

I love it.

No repetitive lyrics and perfectly captures the dark style of Goblin.

21 Answer

You get a firsthand view of how Tyler really feels. He fires heavy shots at his dad, but at the end of the verse, he still has a pang of remorse, saying that if he ever calls, he hopes there will be an answer.

The lyrics are awesome, and so is the video. Easily one of the most memorable lyrics and songs from him. I love how stripped down this is and the emotion in his voice when he talks about his dad.

Love it.

The lyrics are great if you understand what he actually is talking about. And I can relate to it a lot. I really feel Tyler in this song.

22 New Magic Wand

This song is like a whole journey to listen to. So much to listen to, so many sensations. It's awesome.

This is his best song from his best album. Yonkers was overrated.

23 Golden

Pieces together the entire message of Goblin and is just insane rapping. When Tyler loses it in any song, I always get the chills.

Great way to end Goblin. The beat is incredible, lyrics on point, and it also adds to the drama when it ties into the storyline of Tyler and the therapist.

24 Where This Flower Blooms

Literally gives me chills whenever the violin starts playing in the beginning.

This song has so much heart, from the lyrics to the instrumental. This song gives me the feels every time.

25 Earfquake

A song that sees Tyler singing more than rapping, and even Playboi Carti sounds alright for once (usually, PBC is trash). Tyler was slightly ahead of his time. When this came out in 2015, not many people were huge fans of it due to the distorted bass.

But fast forward to 2017 or 2018, and almost all mainstream rappers from then until today use distorted bass.

I like this song. I only ever heard of him because my son went to his concert tonight in St. Louis.

The video is just bizarre. But the song is one of Tyler's best.
