"Listen to Your Heart" should be 1# and "The Look" 3#.

Agreed. I love "Joyride", but you never hear it on the radio anymore.

With those changes, I think it's a good list.

I did that a while ago—my top two were the same and the rest were totally different. Don't remember it all that well. These are the ones I'd definitely include:

100,000 Fireflies
The Book of Love
Papa Was a Rodeo
All My Little Words
I Don't Believe You
California Girls
Take Ecstasy With Me
All the Umbrellas in London

It's tricky because they've only released a few singles and none of of their songs have had much mainstream exposure—Peter Gabriel's excellent Book of Love cover was in some Richard Gere movie, I think, All My Little Words was featured on The Shield (my intro to the band), Why I Cry was on Pete & Pete, and Pieces of April got a fair amount of critical attention, although I don't know how much of that had to do with the soundtrack. It's certainly the only reason I might watch it.

Nor have their individual songs appeared in many rankings. There was a big 69LS poll, I'm not sure how big, done in 1999 and 2006 which Book of Love and Rodeo won. While it's not their most popular track—check Last.fm—Fireflies likely is the most highly regarded among fans.

1. 100,000 Fireflies
2. The Book of Love
3. Papa Was a Rodeo
4. I Don't Believe You
5. All the Umbrellas in London
6. All My Little Words
7. California Girls
8. Take Ecstasy With Me
9. I Don't Want to Get Over You
10. Born on a Train

That's my best shot at a ranking, if indeed they've earned enshrinement among the likes of Papa Roach.

There's no doubt in my mind 100,000 Fireflies should be set in stone at #1 and Book of Love should probably be #2 even though I've never been a big fan of it and Peter Gabriel's cover has probably done more for it's popularity than anything, but I think after that it gets difficult.

"When My Boy Walks Down the Street" was on Queer as Folk and is definitely one of their most famous numbers from what I've heard. I never considered "I Don't Believe You" or "California Girls" to be among their most popular songs. I guess it is tricky because a lot of their popularity is in the LGBT community and not so much in the mainstream so it's hard to measure the popularity of their songs, because none of it is recorded in chart data and such.

This is not a place for your personal favorite songs by an artist. Only lists that follow the criteria should be added here. Your list does not follow the criteria and will not be added. Right now, the current Led Zeppelin list is fine

For a thread for favorite songs, please see here

Cause it's not recognized as one of their greatest songs.
I LOVE seeing Burn in the top 5, btw. What an ass-kicker that song is.
