Best Songs from Deadmau5's While (1<2)

This album is quite different from most of his works, but still astonishing.

The Top Ten

1 Seeya

A very underrated song; I must make that clear. - PositronWildhawk

Sounds like Daft Punk. Deadmau5 + Daft Punk = The Best. - Lasvegasxavier

This is one of his best songs, it's so chilled out.

Secret best track on this album.

2 Bleed

I think this just surpassed Strobe as my favorite Deadmau5 song. It is difficult for me to explain the feeling that this song gives me, but I will try. I find it insane that a song with no lyrics can even make you feel this way. Bleed is one of those songs that makes you depressingly stare off into space and reevaluate your entire life. This song becomes even more emotional when you learn that it was created in memory of a fan of Deadmau5's who died in a car crash on the way to one of his shows. If I could describe this song in one word, it would be loss. This song is grieving, mourning, and missing someone, made into audio form. At least that's what it feels like for me. - Atham

It's like an ocean slowly rising inside me.. So wonderful..

I cried listening to this. I haven't cried in a long time...

This song can make anyone cry.

3 Phantoms Can't Hang

This is classic Deadmau5 as raw as you can get it! This is an overlooked masterpiece! Way better than See ya and especially Strobe. This I think is my favorite from While (1<2) along with My Pet Coelacanth.

I love how the beat keeps going on and on and how the bass keeps changing

The beat just goes on along with the tune.. Truly mesmerizing

Just one word: AWESOME

4 My Pet Coelacanth

Deadmau5's synths can't get any dirtier or grittier than this!

#1, hands down! Seeya comes at a close second, but MAN, is My Pet Coelacanth good! One of my personal favorites. - Nebby_

This song is such a great example of Joel's pure genius, it's epic, engaging and almost humorous all at once, definitely my favorite track on this album, Seeya and Gula come pretty darn close...Bleed is good too though

5 Pets

I kinda wish This and Seeya were on the first disc. When I listen to the second disc, the ambient songs take me on a trip through space. Then when Pets comes on, the trance is ruined! Had it been on disc 1, I would appreciate it a lot more, but either way, I love every second of it. Love the playful feel. - Slipperyjack40

I don't get how this was shoved to the side. - PositronWildhawk

Songs like this is why I love Deadmau5

6 Avaritia

The best song on the album, hands down. I'm surprised it's only 7th. The synths in this before the drop... I nearly fainted. Not even joking.

This is THE STRONGEST intro Deadmau5 has ever used. So dark and haunting. I can't get enough! One of my favorites

For definite best song on while and is possibly the best Deadmau5 song

Sends chills up my spine! So haunting and strong! - Slipperyjack40

Good feel and bouncy, one of his best songs!

9 Ice Age

This is so trippy and a new weird original sound, one of best!

10 A Moment to Myself

Another really nice one from disc 2. I think this would have been a much better ending than Seeya. - Slipperyjack40

The Contenders

11 Survivalism
