When I hear the song, I feel much better. I enjoy just listening and don't thinking on. Love it.

I love this song so much! It makes me just so happy! Thanks Jack Johnson, for a song that can cheer me up no matter what

My all time favorite song. It's my family song. Each time it plays my entire family stops and listens and sing along. I have the Cuban version as well. Everything about this song makes us happy.

I was going to be surprised if it wasn't the first favorite.

he needs another album

I feel like saying this is my favorite is kinda wrong, because I like all jack johnson's lyrics. But this rhythm is special anyways.

Amazing. Beautiful. There's no words to describe this song. This is definitely one of Jacky J's best songs.

Best song. Great rhythm and lyrics especially the chorus

This song never fails to calm me down, Jack Johnson makes some of the best music I have ever heard!

It would have to be this or 'Crying Shame'. - gamedemon24

8 Good People

This is my favorite Jack Johnson song. I've noticed that there are less people that are interested in others not just themselves. I remember when I was little kid I asked my mom," Mommy? Why is the news always bad? " And my mom said, "because, there aren't a whole lot of good people anymore." I always wondered what she meant until I heard this song. Now I understand that our society is trying to shape us to be for only us. Not for others. And whenever I start to get self focused I listen to this song to try stay the course of being a "good person". That's just my two cents. Sorry if this was a waste of your time,

I get very frustrated with the world a lot of the time, with people and get caught up way too much in a lot of the bull in the world.
Sometimes it's hard to explain these feelings eloquently and to do so without confusing others. I feel this song accomplishes that admirably.
So whenever I'm feeling pressured or stressed or even just feeling a bit down and out because evrything's getting a bit too much, I either listen to this or another of Jack's songs which, I feel is discussing a similar if not identical topic in a slightly different manner and tone, and that's "On and On"...
Not only does this realise, everyone in the world is insane, or nasty, greedy or just out to get ahead by any means possible, with no regards for anyone else, and no thought for the future, and how they might be affecting it.
It reminds me that the world is going to crash and burn, but it isn't going to stop me from enjoying my life as well as I can and enjoy what I have with the people I love and ...more

Fantastic song I would have to say it is understandable it is at this level, because he has so many fantastic songs, but in my humble opinion should be top 10!

Brilliant song and brilliant voice

9 No Other Way

Hard to explain, the tone the feeling of this drifting is so good

10 Never Know

Such an amazing song so underrated. The vibe is chill and upbeat and the hook is 10/10

This song is amazing! This song is so relaxing. I certainly enjoy this song the most out of all his songs.

My favorite of his from the album In Between Dreams.

His most romantic song, just love it, so do the ladies
The melody is perfect, just perfect

The Contenders

11 If I Had Eyes

Best song off Sleep Through the Static. The song describes drifting apart from a loved one. Jack Johnson is an expert at expressing very real emotions with an almost antithetically pleasant sound.

Should be "same girl" off this album. But this is my favorite album.

This needs to be higher too

Definitely deserves to be higher on this list!

12 Bubble Toes

It's just such an Original, Fun song! I get so tired of the "canned" songs--the same stuff over and over again. NOT with J Johnson! He's right up there with Dave Mathews on creativity and amazing talent. While Dave is passionate in an intense way, Jack is as passionate but in a mellow, relaxing way. Stirs the heart! Love his music...and his personal style...I am so sad I missed him when he came to SD this year. But I'm gearing up for his next Hawaii concert God willing!

So many amazing jack Johnson songs out there the list never ends but this is my personal favorite

Just so much fun. Its said that he wrote this song just by taking up a guitar and singing first thing that came to his mind...
That's like Jack Johnson

Me and my dad share the same love for jack johnsons songs including bubble toes it is one of my favorites by far!

I think that this song is amazing, I have always liked it, not only is it the song which you can see ben stiller and jack Johnson together in it, it is catchy and relaxing, I have learnt every single lyric of by heart! The best thing was that he played this song in his concert at Birmingham! Great song!

I did not even know this song existed until a few weeks ago but now it is almost constantly playing in my room.

My absolute favourite.

14 No Good with Faces
15 Do You Remember

17 Inaudible Melodies

chillest beat ever. especially right after you just burned down some quality green.

Best JJ song ever in my humble opinion. It shows how he evolved as an artist over the years. Wish he could more of these type of songs.

Classic Jack Johnson, the perfect start to his best album!

No. 26? Should at least be in top 10

18 Go On

Brings a tear to my eye, every time I hear it, deserves to be way op this list but poeple don't hear much of the sleep through the static album, check it out!

It's great, very mellow and has a great sound to it.

best song!

19 Cocoon

So deeply relaxing and peaceful for me. The way his voice ranges!

Beautifully heartbreaking lyrics. "I don't want to be your regret; I'd rather be your cocoon."

20 Broken

How isn't this one in the top 5? This is as classic a Jack Johnson song as gets.

One of the most underrated Jack Johnson songs out there
One of the most smooth flowing songs I've ever heard.
Guitar, piano, drums, bass everything is balanced perfectly.

Nostalgia when I was a child my mother had burned this cd and I listened to it each night

21 Rodeo Clowns

Seriously, listen to this song. Just amazing! Love it!

Best Jack Johnson for me...

Awesome song! the best of his by far!

22 Losing Keys

This song inspires. They metaphor of losing keys, that everyone does from time to time, makes his ideas and thoughts easily accessible to every listener.

23 Sexy Plexi
24 Monsoon

Funny thing about this song is the more I listen to it, the more I realize how great it is. Really stands out among the other songs on the album it belongs to. Epitomizes the very best of Jack Johnson. I could listen to it all day, for real!

Greatest jack johnson song. Never gets old and you get to hear the range from Jack.

25 Wasting Time

"I'm just a waste of her energy, and she's just a waste of my time. So why don't we get together? And we could waste everything tonight... "

So hard to pick, but this may be my favorite Jack Johnson song. The beat and heavy bass is so unique compared to his other stuff. And it's so happy! It always puts me in a good mood

26 You and Your Heart

This song is really amazing it should have higher status concidering it was one of the major songs in the album to the sea this song is amazing and it needs more credit.

This is a good one needs to be much higher

When I think of "To The Sea", this is the song that comes to mind.

One of my faves!

31 A Pirate Looks at Forty
32 Angel

I'm actually quite amazed how this is so low. Very simple song, but effective. Me and my girlfriend rarely agree on music, but we have both agreed this is going to be our first dance song when we get married. Beautiful track.

It's one of the best songs he has, If not the best. The lyrics in this song are beautiful and very romantic. Jack Johnson know exactly how to explain what to be in love means.

HOW IS THIS NOT FIRST!? Angel has beautiful lyrics and more soul in this song than in any other in Jack Johnson's list of beautyful songs! You gotta love this masterpiece of the master Johnson!

#27?! Should at least be in the top 10 one of by favorites by far, just an overall awesome song. The soul that passes whit every word just amazing, and the simplicity of the guitar just make me want to sing this song every day.

An awesome, laid back song that just makes me happy and relaxed!

Such a beautiful, free flowing song.

35 I Got You

This is a very cute song. Honestly I found it a bit challenging to get used to the pure calmness of Jack Johnson's songs at first as someone used to alternative rock, but this song led me to change my opinion about him. He is indeed a true artist.

So beautiful and simple. The lyrics express everything a relationship should be. The whistling exudes a certain carefree happiness that people feel when they are in love.

Awesome this should in top number

This is gonna be a classic
