Top 10 Best Tally Hall Songs

Tally Hall is an American rock band formed in December 2002 and based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The band has a relatively significant cult following, and is known for upbeat melodies and whimsical lyrics; the band members once described their musical style as "wonky rock" and "fabloo rock". Tally Hall has five members, distinguished by the color of their neckties: vocalist and guitarist Rob Cantor (yellow), vocalist and bassist Zubin Sedghi (blue), vocalist and guitarist Joe Hawley (red), drummer Ross Federman (gray), and vocalist and keyboardist Andrew Horowitz (green).
The Top Ten
1 Ruler of Everything

Although not the best song, I'm not angry that this got memed to number one. It's dark menacing vibe paired with the incredible line "You understand mechanical hands are the ruler of everything" make this song magical.

One of the creepiest tracks from the Hall, with lots of freakout vocal effects and rapping delivery from Joe Hawley, also a grand epic closer for their debut.

Hands-down favorite Tally Hall song! From the chilling chorus to the stunning vocal effects, this song is simply beautiful.

This is the song that introduced me to Tally Hall. A wonderful song with a deep meaning about the egoistical and time.

2 Banana Man

This is a song about being lured into addiction and you can't change my opinion on this one. One of the best purely because it's weird.

There are perfectly constructed masterpieces such as Bohemian Rhapsody or Stairway to Heaven. There are children's songs such as Yellow Submarine or Octopus's Garden. Banana Man is a perfectly constructed masterpiece of a children's song. Enough said.

They weave so many different styles into a beautiful banana tapestry. It's wild, it's catchy, and above all, it's bananas.

Good god what an earworm, when you listen to this song and watch the music video you'll fall in love with Tally Hall.

3 Taken for a Ride

This song is my personal favorite everything about it is great the lyrics are amazing, the instrumentals are some of the best Tally Hall has ever made and everyone hates the vocal effect but I personally don't mind it Overall amazing.

I love the lyrics, tune, and vocals. This song is by far my favorite Tally Hall song, and the only thing keeping it from being my favorite song of all time is the vocal effects they use. It really detracts from the full experience of the song.

This song hits so hard. The differences in production throughout the whole song make this repetitive verse as mesmerizing as a Pollock painting. The chorus has a very passionate drive to it as well. A winner of a song.

Well thought out lyrics, amazing vocals done by Andrew Horowitz, and just a mind blowing song overall. Probably my favorite song by these guys.

4 Spring and a Storm

I didn't really like this one the first time I listened to it, but the message really hit me the next couple of times around as well as the melody. It's a very solid song about living life to it's fullest.

The best song of theirs by far, or at least the happiest. It's so unique, yet it feels oddly familiar and nostalgic. The sound design in this one is of superb quality.

This song strangely makes me cry every time I listen to it. I relate to the moon part, since I was once lost in the rain. I was terrified of death when I was younger, but, thankfully through this song, I did learn that we have so much left to sing. A song to me can't be so good and relatable. Thank you Tally Hall. Is that what the song is about? I don't know.

There's a storm for every spring. A philosophical ballad featuring some of the sincerest guitar work and vocals from the band, and a lot of where-do-we-go pondering.

5 The Bidding

A true classic, something that you feel like you've heard before because of how well the song is written, so much fun and a great jam.

The idea, the beat, the extreme diversity of themes for a 2.5-minute song: well, here you are, the Bidding.

A very interesting concept for a song that works quite well.

6 Welcome to Tally Hall

An amazing and unexpected rap song it truly does a great job at welcoming you to what Tally Hall is and is a great starting point for one's journey with this amazing band.

7 Good Day

A short mixture of everything Tally Hall is about, possibly their biggest hit, and a perfect intro track for an album as well.

The quintessential Tally Hall song, its fun, upbeat, somewhat somber in areas, but is truly a wonderful and warm welcome to Tally Hall (see what I did there?)

8 A Hymn for a Scarecrow

A beautiful song that starts off making you feel nice and warm inside, until it slowly descents into madness. Kind of gives me "Don't Hug Me, I'm Scared" vibes. I also LOVE the camos with Bora whistling and Ross singing in this song.

The folky form of Tally Hall, where they also succeed. An actual hymn for a scarecrow, has some extremely frightening wind sounds with the word 'fly' sung during that part.

A good song with a dreamy, sort of half awake vibe. The whistling really hits different.

9 &

Everything from the tambourine to the bass, this song is catchy. The theme of duality and I can never get tired of it. It's been my favorite song since I first started listening to Tally Hall and I don't think it'll change any time soon.

Probably the best track from their second album, where they had gone less inspired than on the debut. You've got a creepier track than Ruler of Everything, actually, with a pumping a cappella intro, a couple of political statements, and a messing abrupt ending that leaves you pissed off completely.

It's a song that can creep me out, but I still love it. I tried to listen to this song until I got sick of it, but I couldn't. This is my favorite son from Tally Hall. - @RandomHusky_Pro

Just the coolest song ever, the beat and repeating lyrics make you feel alive. Amazing song.

10 Turn the Lights Off

I enjoyed the instrumentals and the theming/message on this, not so much the lyrics. The lyrics aren't my favorite simply because they don't flow as well as some of their other songs, but I really do enjoy the melody and overall message of overcoming your fears.

This song is perfectly composed but chaotic and catchy all at the same time! This one really got me into Tally Hall.

Such a wonderfully fun song that truly captures the essence of what Tally Hall is, plus the music video is amazing.

The biggest bop of them all. It's energy soars through the whole song as is definitely a standout in it's album.

The Contenders
11 Hidden in the Sand

I can play it on ukulele, I think its pretty nice to listen to. But I need to work on it.

A really simple, catchy tune that has a sort of 60s vibe going for it. I could fall asleep to this.

Short, sweet, and such a pleasant vibe.

Love this little tune

12 Two Wuv

An upbeat rock song about your undying love for the Olson Twins! Unsettlingly catchy and overwhelmingly creepy, this song does a fantastic job of drawing a line in the sand with parasocial relationships and making Tally Hall's stance on your relationship with them, clear. You don't know them, even if they can make you rock out to one of their best songs for a song about stalking.

Finally, a jump-up song, which is also a sort of comic tribute to the Olsen twins, ironically sung by the bassist. The chorus literally makes you hop as if you're on their concert.

13 Never Meant to Know

You feel like you're floating off a cliff and toward your bed. You don't hear a lot of songs about acceptance. This is a welcome song into my playlist.

This song always makes me feel like I just stepped into a mystical realm full of unexpected surprises and adventures. Really fits as the first song on Good & Evil, and let's not forget the amazing vocals by Rob Cantor!

This song is a real earworm as well, the melody is amazing and the lyrics really make it profound, yet another amazing choice for a starting song on an album.

Just beautiful in every way. The melody, the beat and the lyrics really just makes this a masterpiece.

14 The Mind Electric

Technically not a Tally Hall song (released for Hawaii Part II by Miracle Musical), but its demo was so I suppose that's up for debate. The Mind Electric/Inside the Mind of Simon is a chaotic song, but truly wonderful. The lyricism is outstanding, as per usual with a song written by Joe Hawley. Probably the best song from Hawaii Part II, and gives Dream Sweet In Sea Major a run for its money.

I listen it to whole thing and this is the only one I found. So I think people think this one is the best.

This song is great especially the end part don't know why it's here but I'm not complaining

15 Greener

While the song feels like nothing special at first, I really like the melody as well as the double meaning for the color green. It's a very clever song with a nice tune.

This is a great song. One of my favorite songs I have heard from Tally Hall.

Catchiest song ever! I mean that in a good way.

16 Misery Fell

The chorus is a banger to listen to, and the harmony is impeccable

17 The Whole World and You
18 Haiku

Nobody every talks about this song, but the chill mood it gives with the nice instrumentation makes it really nice to me.

19 The Trap

The best Tally Hall song by far. It doesn't get better than this addictive song; the sped-up version which you can find online is so catchy

SUCH an underrated banger. Gorgeous lyrics, a compelling melody, just an all around awesome song!

Everything about this one is amazing.

20 Fate of the Stars

Five guys with ties make their own Bohemian Rhapsody.

21 Mucka Blucka
22 You

Underrated. A simple soothing lullaby that doubles as an earworm. I'm always happy to get this tune stuck in my head because it only offers me serenity when I hum its chorus.

Calming song that never fails to make me remember we all have love for at least one person.

23 Sacred Beast
24 Dream
25 Just Apathy
