Top 10 Best Melanie Martinez Songs

The Top Ten
1 Dollhouse

Dollhouse is the first Melanie Martinez song I heard. My friend was really into Melanie and was playing this song while we were hanging out. I looked Melanie up on YouTube and fell in love with this song and Pity Party. Dollhouse first, then Pity Party, then Cake, then Mad Hatter

When I showed this to my friend, she thought when it says 'I see things that nobody else sees' was when Melanie would pull out a knife in the music video...

My first ever time I heard of Melanie was by this song, I don't get how some people think she's weird... Well the songs are a little creepy but that's what is cool!

I don't like this song I am literally obsessed with it! while I love all her songs especially pity party and mad hatter but seriously none can top dollhouse for me.

2 Pity Party

I like how it builds up and how strange it is in some ways. It's a really nice song, and one of my top five favorites from the Crybaby album.

In my personal opinion
1) Pity Party - AMAZING instruments, old, vintage feel and really good lyrics.
2) Alphabet Boy - Funny, hilarious, relatable, I love the xylophones in it.
3) Milk & Cookies - Maybe the most UNDERRATED Mel song. I love the lyrics, the video is great!
4) Mrs. Potato Head - Good message, great music & lyrics.
5) Mad Hatter & Cry Baby - Both great "accept yourself" kind-of-message songs.

Over all the other songs in Cry Baby (I like them all and they all have such great lyrics with hidden messages and meanings. I love it), I feel I just relate to this one the most. It has a chilling, but still catchy rhythm.

Dollhouse is great. But Pity Party is definitely my favorite. It showcases Melanie's vocals beautifully and I really like the lyrics.

3 Mad Hatter

The greatest song possibly of all time. It's just outright crazy and perfect. It introduced me to Melanie Martinez and while I'm still getting to know her, I adore this song to bits. Makes me feel very accepted by myself and I love that.

When I was in 7th grade, I took a choir class. Every Friday was "karaoke day," and students were allowed to pick a song to sing to, as long as it was appropriate. This really edgy chick went with this song, and honestly...I liked it. I immediately looked it up on YouTube and added it to my "favorites" playlist. Melanie Martinez isn't really my style, but I appreciate this song. It's catchy, the lyrics feel like a fever dream, and the instrumental is creative. Win win.

"You think I'm crazy, you think I'm gone. I know you're crazy too, I know your gone, its probably the reason that we get along." This is the verse I always think of when I think of my friend and I. I am really eccentric, and at first I didn't think she was. We've known each other our who lives but honestly this song is about our friendship. Any way I LOVE this song, because I AM CrAzY!

This is the first Melanie Martinez song I ever heard and I fell in love with it. It honestly describes me and my friends too well. After listening to this hundreds of times I started listening to her other songs and fell in love with Pity Party, Dollhouse, and Play Date. I still love this one more than all the others though.

4 Mrs. Potato Head

So catchy and it has an awesome music video the song has a great message also. If you watch another pop song music video they will being trying their best to look cite and picutre perfect

I love all of her songs and it's impossible to pick just one but it's weird because Melanie Martinez wrote this song as a reminder to herself that you're beautiful the way you naturally are. That's coming from a girl who bleached her hair, got tattoos and piercings.

I love Mrs. Potato Head because the song is so meaningful and the lyrics are, too. I think that the lyrics are positively beautiful. While the music video is not my favorite, this song is probably one of my favorites.

I don't see why this shouldn't be higher up. This is Melanie's favourite song on the album - this song is pure excellency and amazing. The tune goes really well, even if talking about serious events.

5 Cry Baby

The first song in the album and the best. The song is about how a girl (Crybaby) gets bullied but she doesn't let them get the best of her. Also relatable about how sometimes when a little thing goes wrong, you just get very angry and sad and you don't know why.

The song is very well produced, has a nice structure.
The verses, bridge and chorus all have a different vibe and I just love how it sounds together. The beat is also nice. I don't like the musiv video for cry baby that much though. I was sleepin on this song because of the music video for a long time.

I think the reason I love Cry Baby because It reminds me of myself. Crying over the tinyest things, and people would bug me for it cause I was a boy and kids would say "Your a boy! Boys don't cry, you crybaby"

I think it should be first, I mean come on we all love Crybaby!

6 Tag, You're It

I love most of Melanie's songs. (I'm a big Crybaby) But I really tend to like this one most, followed by Sippy cup, Pity Party, Cake, Mad Hatter and all her other songs... Just appreciate how easily it conveyed the message of "kidnapping" and still become a good, catchy, creepy and awkward song (Which is what they want it to be like as a Melanie Martinez song)

I find myself singing this song constantly. It's so addicting and honestly a very hard song listen to with it singing! Melanie outdid herself with this part of Cry Baby's story.

This song is so catchy and a little mysterious. It can be creepy at times but the whole song is just so soft and lyrical which is basically Melanie's voice.

This song is one of Melanie's best! She covers the topic of kidnapping so well, and it's hard not to listen to on repeat!

7 Carousel

This song is very soothing to listen to. The part where she was trapped on the ride and started blowing chunks had to be my favorite. I loved her voice there. There's just something about it I just loved. This song is my favorite and in my opinion should be up with Dollhouse and Pity Party.

I am in love with this song.. There's something about it that makes everything magic, it's also American Horror Story season 4 Freakshow's theme, which I adore as well! With no doubt my favourite Melanie Martinez song.

This song is literally one of the best metaphors I have ever heard. This and soap

I could listen to this for hours. I love this song.

8 Soap

I really love this song and am surprised its not higher on the list. The song has a really relatable meaning; its about wanting to "wash out your mouth with soap" after confessing your feelings for someone, and taking that risk to reveal your true feelings and opening up to someone.

This is my favorite Melanie Martinez song because it is a metaphor about a greater meaning, about saying and doing things you're not supposed to, trying to erase that 'history'. Its symbolism is so meaningful.

I thought this was supposed to be number 1 because this has a unique sounding and many people can agree that this is a song that can be replayed over and over again.

This is personally my favorite because it is very catchy and don't get me wrong it is the best out of all of the besides all the others.

9 Pacify Her

Oh I love this song! It's like a ballerina would dance too. Maybe we should do that. If anyone is a fan of Melanie Martinez, please make a fan art about Crybaby dressed as a ballerina while wearing a pacifier...please?

This song helped me understand my feelings about a boy who didn't love me back. I just needed Melanie to vocalize what I was feeling to really see what was going on. Thanks Mel

This should have been in the top 10 because it really is a unique song, which outshines most music nowadays.

It is really a good song too listen, too plus I never heard her voice that good when she sang this song!

10 Milk and Cookies

I can't believe this song isn't even on the list when there's just a bunch of songs that were just covers on The Voice. I love how its sort of like a part 2 of Tag, your it.

Extremely underrated. I hate the fact it's known for the line "A little bit of sugar, but lots of poison too". I get it's a catchy line but the song needs a lot more recognition, it's awesome

Who wouldn't love the twisted version of "One, two, buckle my shoe"? Or the line "Sing you a lullaby, where we die at the end"?

The song is amazing and nothing can change.

The Contenders
11 Alphabet Boy

I actually love all the songs in the Crybaby album but here is my order... 1.Soap (It has very cool sound effects and is catchy in a good way and easy to remember) 2.Pity Party ( Mel relates to me and the music is fantastic) 3. Milk & Cookies ( This one isn't too popular but for some reason the music I love the most besides Soap and it reminds me of Hollyleaf) 4. Dollhouse ( This is a very unique song and that's why I love it. And Mel just spells out dollhouse instead of just saying it) 5. Mad Hatter (It is very catchy and it reminds me of one of my friends) 6. Training Wheels ( I love how it's romantic and instead of talking about just love, Melanie just talks about biking as a huge metaphor) 7. Teddy Bear (I would not say this is popular but its extremely unique and the music gets all happy and then changes into sad and the lyrics are very metaphoric. Sippy Cup (I like that it's a little more simple and it's not like too average or anything. And 'syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup' ...more

This song hits almost every thing I love about Melanie's style. Its creepy and outlandish, yet childish and funny. She's always had a childlike approach to lyrics, and it really shows here. And I love how her lyrics sound over this production. While songs like Dollhouse have more impact, no other Melanie Martinez song succeeds so much at being a Melanie Martinez song.

At least this is a bit higher than on the other lists. I think this song has a great message behind its amazing tune. Though I love all of Melanies songs I think this one truly is the best! It should be fourth (at least)

This is the best Melanie Martinez song ever! Not dollhouse! (Although I love it), I'm not going to give away my age, but let's say I'm young, and I love this song!

12 Play Date

Wow. This song is incredibly under-rated. It's catchy and unique, not as creepy as 'Tag You're It' and fans of Melanie can relate to the lyrics.

Oh my gosh this is just like me and my Bff on a sleepover/playdate. She always wants to play games when I want to talk to her.

Why this isn't even in top 10 I don't know. Should be top 3. It's got a BRILLIANT beat and tune and so relatable

Once you hear the beat you're going to wonder why this isn't in 1st like I did.

13 Sippy Cup

I love this song! This is the first song I've ever listened too, that Melanie wrote! Not to mention, that this song got me into Melanie's song! I also find this one unique to Melanie's other songs. Sippy-cup deserves to be higher!

Wattpad @kidges

I love the noise in the background that makes this song sound vintage or something. This song is also very catchy.

I love this song! It's really good with a good meaning and I just...well 11/10!

Revenge on her husband and kill the daughter too!

14 Training Wheels

How is this not higher the tunes feels so mesmerizing, you can literally sleep while listening to this its sooo pretty it's my 2nd fave you could say it's my 1st fave but moving that aside this is so underrated why the lyre sounds so nice and it feels like you would tear up. Its definitely one of the most symbolic and nicely produced songs of mel. Please be higher

This is literally describing the realationship between me and my bff. No we are not lesbian, but I would do anything for her and would like for us to get closer.

I have actually never listened to the actual song, only the nightcore version, but I can totally see how good it would sound. But this song is insane, nightcore or not nightcore!

It's so peaceful, and I love its massive contrast to the rest of this incredible album.

15 Cake

My definite favourite, and that's saying something as a huge Crybaby. For starters, the tune is wonderful and catchy, and I get chills down my spine when I hear the intro EVERY TIME. Plus, the meaning is beautiful, and cake is such a great way to express it. As her theme is 'toddler' or 'baby' or whatever it's pretty natural for someone to lick the buttercream off a cake then discard it. I feel bad for Melanie that anyone would want to discard her. Plus, and this is off topic, but #TimothyIsOverParty

I wenta through a similar experience and this song is actually amazing. The "and respectfully," part gets me every time and everything from the ticking in the background to the vocals to the music of the chorus- I could talk about this song for hours. EXTREMELY underrated, this song definitely deserves to be higher on the list.

This song should be the 1st best song! It's beautiful background music and her voice is unbeatable when she sings the chorus and it's clean too

Beautiful to listen to. Relatable, and I found myself singing it obsessively. Underrated because it is only in the deluxe version

16 Bittersweet Tragedy

I adore this song, and I'm sad that not many people seem to talk about it.

This song is just so beautiful it's sad that it isn't talked about as much

17 Gingerbread Man

This song may not be THE best, but I love it! I think it deserves to be up there with Dollhouse.

How is this song not in the top tens. It's starred on iTunes. It's a beautiful song

Should have been in top ten. This song is just so good! I listen to it 24/7

So relatable why is it not number one!

18 Teddy Bear

Amazing! Should be higher than 18! I don't even like Dollhouse.

How is this not on the list. What the heck

Should not be the last one. So perfect.

This song needs more attention!

19 Dead to Me

What? Only 18th? This song is amazing! Seriously!

This song is awesome

20 Bombs On Monday

I like it! So Tragic...yet So Unique! - -Firefly-

Why are you so grumpy! It's Monday

This song is so great..

21 Toxic

It's not her song, but it was her audition for the voice.

This is amazing

Gave me shivers

22 Show & Tell

A speech by me
" Just because something is new doesn't mean it's bad so help me change the selecting a K-12 song as your favorite,"

It just has such a deep meaning about how celebrities are humans too but they aren't treated like humans.

The choreography is incredible and the message is something that people need to hear!

My number one favorite Melanie Martinez song! I love it so much

23 Birthing Addicts

I like this song because it explains the cold hard truth about life. People come from broken homes, reputation is tarnished, and things do not always change for the better. The message may be glum but it is the truth and besides, the tune is awesome! I mean come on! I love these songs from her. I also love dear porkupine.

She is addicted to seeing babies being born...maybe she should be a midwife?

This song came from her soul it's real and I have it. It should be higher that 19

24 Lunchbox Friends

I love how Melanie dosen't sing about love then a break up more love and another break up but instead she sings about mental health topics and stuff that needs to be spoken about more!

I actually don't want lunchbox friends. I want people who understand my problems with the world.

The beat is very catchy and the message defines my problems in the world.

I really like this song because the dances, beat, lyrics are perfect.

25 Too Close

Her voice sounded so beautiful in this cover and it matched the intstrumental perfectly, sort of like my personal favorite song of hers, "Tag, you're it" with its distorted music box sound. She also looked gorgeous in the performence on the voice.

Too close for comfort
