Best Passenger Songs

Michael David Rosenberg known by his stage name Passenger, British folk-rock singer-songwriter

The Top Ten

1 Let Her Go

In early 2013, the song broke through in Europe and Oceania, reaching number-one in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland, making Passenger's first international success - MatrixGuy

The first time I heard Mike Rosenberg's voice, I was like, "Hey, is this a joke? ".
That would be the most, THE most, regretful statement I've made with respect to music. When I heard the full song, oh... it was beautiful.

I HAD to vote "Let Her Go" It's so beautiful. And his voice is so honest and innocent. This is on my list of 'Songs You Would Play On A Loop'. Just such a lovely song. You're right to crown this gem. - Britgirl

Where the pure and quality music co-exists but useless drugs & sensual content exits; therein you reach Passenger. Solo & Staccato. Best song ever.

Great song, great band, love it!

Many Passenger songs make me feel like I gain more life experience just by listening to them. This is one of them. Talks about heartbreak in life very beautifully.

The most beautiful and meaningful. So touching should be on top.

Just wow! Awesome man...

This song has the lyrics any band might dream of creating... One of the absolute best lyrics and smooth classy tune, very good for soft late night music...

This made me fall in love with passenger music. It blew my mind. Helped me with my career choice. It put me in another place

Incredible song, paints an image quite unlike any of his other songs, also has the nicest guitar of all his songs in my opinion

The hell with the lyrics! Mind boggling but true!

7 Staring at the Stars

It sounds kind of silly but then you listen to the acoustic version and you want to cRY it's so beautiful. "who needs love when you've got silicone and strap-ons? "

The acoustic version is beautiful, but the original I think is even sadder with the contrast between the music and the lyrics. Listen to both of them, such a good lyrics!

Full with meaning, it's a powerful satire, with a feeling of mockery and irony. Beautiful song with great lyrics, best of the album

We put three sugars in our tea, sit and watch daytime T.V. and laugh at mums who don't know who the father is, and all our girlfriends are long gone, we watch too much internet porn, who needs love when you've got silicone and strap-ons?

17 Caravan

Full of emotions, good lyrics and inspirational beats; should be high up on list, one of my personal faves!

Has to be in the top ten!

18 Riding to New York

Wow, Mike has made some pretty emotional songs over the years but none top this, got me right in the feels from the first verse and is THE highlight of Whispers. The songs tells the story of an old man who is slowly dieing from smoking and is going to ride across the US to see his family one last time in New York. Definitely listen to this, while it isn't as catchy or relatable as songs like Staring at the Stars, Holes and Whispers it is one of his best. Great job as always Mike!

Such a sad song, especially since it's true!

Really great song, very emotional

Dis song is poetry at its best... the storyline just takes u into a journey... my best passenger song of alltym

19 Scare Away the Dark

I live the idea of "if we all light up, we can scare away the dark" - beautiful A poet to be sure.

Such a beautiful song. What I like more about this song than any other is that its such a feel good song

Great song to get people out of home and to do things

One of the greatest lyrics ever written. So inspiring.
This guy is probably the greatest artist of this generation. But he is so underrated, people haven't realized his excellence. This makes me sad. People are stupid sometimes.
While, his songs are never.

35 Walk You Home

I have all Passenger's albums and this is the song I keep coming back to

This is such a unique and unbeatable song, it's one of his oldest but it's one of the best.

Ace, my wedding song

36 Diamonds

Amazingly spectacular song

37 I Hate

This is an AMAZING song, very relatable and great for venting your own emotions too! It should definitely be much higher up the list.

Love the lyrics, this is full of great lyrics. Good job.

"Well, I hate pointless status updates on Facebook
FYI we were never "m8"s
We pretend to be friends on the internet
When in real life, we have nothing to say". This song is great; behind the ranting there are many important messages. Please listen to it (or look up the lyrics), you'll love it!

38 David

Imagine listening to this song at 2 am in a smokey room on top of a tall building next to everyone you love

To be honest, it's a hard choice between 'David', 'Holes', 'Wrong Direction', and 'Heart's on Fire' for me, but I think the emotion and honesty conveyed in 'David' is able to edge out the others for me. Gotta say though, I love Mike and every song he does, and many of his songs have a special place in my heart. Keep it up, mate.

39 Catch In the Dark

I live this one! Should definitely be in the top 10

40 Intacto


41 The Girl Running
42 Bullets

In my opinion, this is one of Passenger's saddest songs. While it is not extremely relatable, it is very upbeat and tells a great story. It is about the father of one of Passenger good friends who began collecting bullets when he was nine years old and one day had almost all of them stolen from him. What makes this so upsetting is that the bullets could not be used and we're completely useless to everyone except the man who had developed a big attachment to his collection. This song makes you realize how insensitive people can be and makes you feel very sorry for the man who had his most prized possession taken away from him. Not only does the story behind the song make it so great, but the song is very catchy and fun to sing along to

43 Young as the Morning, Old as the Sea
44 Hell or High Water
45 Sweet Louise

How is this song not on the list? It is an absolute masterpiece.

46 Blind Love

An amazing and touching song. It's a really good one though x

�� A perfect song

47 A Thousand Matches
48 Rolling Stone
