The Top Ten
1 Ruler of Everything

One of the songs of all time. When listened to with the rest of the album, the ending never fails to give me shivers. Joe's rapping is amazing. I now understand mechanical hands are the ruler of everything

I LOVE THIS SONG it was the first ever TallyHall song I listened to, it sounds so pretty to me and I love the message. It also sounds amazing with 13, so it's forsure one of my top songs.

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.

2 Banana Man

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.

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.

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

3 Taken for a Ride

The first verse is a bit boring, but the rest of the song completely makes up for that. Phenomenal chorus. It's the sort of thing that makes you want to wave your arms in the air to the beat

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.

4 Spring and a Storm

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.

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.

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

One moment goofy, the next downright depressing. Such a chaotic and catchy song that captures what makes Tally Hall so good

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

No wonder this is one of their most popular songs, especially back in the day!

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 &

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.

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.

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 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.

12 The Mind Electric

This song feels so chaotic yet so easing. The invoked emotion is very unpredictable, and different for everyone. The rhythm is phenomenal and electrifying.

Terrifying but amazing. It has no right being this catchy, considering it (and the entirety of H:PII disturbing subject matter)

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.

13 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.

14 Never Meant to Know

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.

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.

15 The Whole World and You

Love the not hidden meaning of the story and it always cheers me up.

16 Haiku

It sounds really pretty, I like how it has the talking at the beginning and how it kind of feels like listening to a live show recorded.

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

17 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.

18 Misery Fell

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

19 Fate of the Stars

I don't want Tally Hall to be gone forever, but if this has to be their final song, the I'm not complaining. Andrew's part at the end is a bit forgettable. Aside from that, it's a completely spectacular. I love how it speeds up on the second verse/ chorus, and the eerie bridge

Miracle Musical before Miracle Musical. Andrew did a great job on this and I love his singing part the end.

Five guys with ties make their own Bohemian Rhapsody.

20 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.

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.

24 Just Apathy
