Best Wombats Songs


The Top Ten

1 Moving to New York

Love this song so much! It's amazing! If you like let's dance to joy division, you'll love this!


One of the best British indie punk songs. My favorite from the Wombats by far. The hook works well.

2 Jump Into the Fog

I love this song, and it was also the first song I ever listened by wombats. Amazing lyrics and really good guitar ;D

The melody, guitar, lyrics is so brilliant. It is, in my opinion, one of the greatest songs in the Indie-techno-pop figure this century.

Timeless song, love the vibe!

I have voted for this song because I love it.
its great
its catchy
beth song they have done by far!
i could listen to this song all day.

3 Let's Dance to Joy Division

For me the best of them, it's a great song and also the voice sounds great, all of this song it's great, I have no complain about it and the instruments sound really cool, not so complicated but it's a great song, also leaves a great message, to see the positive things when we are having bad moments and focus on the good things and be happy

Almost Impossible to choose between this and moving to New York, but this one got my vote because it has an amazing vibe and a great upbeat rhythm. It really gets you in the mood for almost any occasion. It is also nice to see some Liverpudlians making the most of their accents. Overall a fantastic song that you can't stop dancing along to (even if you are like me and you can't dance.. )
It is also accessible to a wide range of audiences, I am 13 and I absolutely LOVE the Wombats even if my friends prefer Miley Cyrus..

This song makes me smile SO MUCH, it's so cute and /ironic/! His accent is the cutest thing I've ever heard and this song is just so catchy it makes me dance! :-)

Come on, I absolutely love Moving to New York and Kill the director but lets dance to joy division just tops off a gig-purely amazing!

4 Techno Fan

OH MY GOSH I LOVE THIS SONG! Only number 6!? This should definitely be number one the beat is incredible and the lyrics are so good:) LOVE THE WOMBATS

Techno Fan is my forever favourite! This and Your Body Is A Weapon caught my attention the most out of all the songs. Its very catchy and it makes anyone want to do the whole head banging jizz

One of their bests, song I loved the most from hearing them live

JESUS CHRIST this is the best song in the world; my favourites are techno fan, 1996, jump into the fog and Tokyo

5 Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves)

This is one song that is so incredibly catchy. It is stuck in my head 90% of the time. There's been a lot of questioning as to what the meaning of this song is... Any ideas?

This song is good to listen to on any occasion, and showcases the style of The Wombats quite well.

Such a good beat!

They simply bring much more awesomeness to the INDIE genre (if that's even possible.. }

6 Kill the Director

Should definitely be among the top 3! - FOB2012

Why is "Moving to New York" number 1. Not their best. Kill the director is GLORIOUS!... I'm prepared to defend this with rapier v rapier combat.

Wombats = :o
They are all musical geniuses! Lip-sinking to joy division right this second! Mumford good too xx

7 1996

Awesome song!

Just a good nostalgic song about the 90s. Some people like it because they were born in 1996 but why would you want to go back if you weren't old enough to remember it then. Regardless of that excellent song.

Well they chose a good year (born in '96) and then paired it with awesome music. First Wombats song the I heard and I still really like it. Good chiller song, I love it and it should be wayy higher!

Really good songs, perfect for travelling or hanging with friends. Definitely best song of this year for me!

8 Our Perfect Disease

This is even better than Tokyo, deserves more votes in my opinion, should be at least in the top 5...

This song always cracks me up, especially the phenomenal chorus!

10 Greek Tragedy

One of their new singles. I have no idea how to describe this song. The intro is amazing and the lyrics and the chorus. Just wow. 'She hits like ecstasy' I really love that line. You guys have to listen to it. I personally love their new style.

Best song of all time.

This song conveys emotions that I can't put into words. Every time I hear it, it's like the first time I hear it.

First song I've heard from the Wombats, definitely my second favorite since "Give me a try" is my first.

12 Your Body is a Weapon

Yes! This song is so good and always makes me happy! I love how their songs are always so well written and catchy, this song is forever stuck in my head together with all their other songs. Hope this song will also be on their new album ( which will be released in the near future) last week I went to their first gig after they had been recording in the studio for five months, it was awesome! :) they even played a new song that wasnt released yet! They also played your body is a weapon for the first time live ever so I was so lucky! Great experience! They're live even better! Love the wombats!

THIS is their best song... By far

This new song was featured on the vampire diaries T.V. series. the song has was released as a lyris cartoon like style video on YouTube. it was released on 1st october 2013. the song was released the next day on itunes and YouTube. I personally like this song listen to it asap guys you will certainly like it...

The first song from Glitterbug and it is brilliant! Still got that cheesyish Wombats charm without it ruining the song

13 Lost in the Post

My personal favourite, the song itself is brilliant but the same can't be said about the video sadly.

Why isn't 'lets dance to Joy Division' in this list?

Valentine is one of my favourite songs by them and forever will be. I love the story the song tells and also the character of Valentine.

Haha love this song and it always makes me laugh deserves to be higher

All she ever need was a friend

24 Pink Lemonade

Great song from the new album

"Pink, pink lemonade
And does he kiss you 'til your lips explode?
Pink, pink lemonade
And does he take you places I can't afford to go?
Pink lemonade, you know I
Know behind that sugar there's only lies
Lies, lies, lies"

25 My Circuitboard City

Probably some of the strangest lyrics out of them all! (and they have some weird lyrics) but a very good, catchy song! And immense live. Definitely my favourite wombats tune!

26 Anti-D

One of their slower songs, this one was so well played and sung live! It was really beautiful. I love all their other songs as well and all my favourites are already in the top ten, but this one really should be there too! It's a really good song with a very deep meaning and great lyrics.. So beautiful.

There most emotional and captivating song, showing off a range of tempo skills and layering.

28 Addicted to the Cure

I dunno it's something about the instruments paired with the vocals in the first verse that make this song infectious. So catchy and absolutely brilliant!

32 My First Wedding

The most ‘rock ‘n’ roll’ The Wombats have ever been and a fantastic song in its own right. Their best album (A Guide to Love, Loss and Desperation) in my opinion.

33 Girls/Fast Cars

Who DOESN'T like this song? I find it ridiculously entertaining and funny. The beat is solid and the lyrics are hysterical. It also does speak some truth :b I love this song, so why not stick it on the list?

Just love the lyrics in this song. By far my favourite on 'This Modern Glitch'. Me and my friends love the guys and all love Girls/Fast Cars. Find the lyrics really relatable but I'm not sure whether that's a good thing

I actually love this song so much. It is really cool and the beat is awesome

The best.
