101 Top Drake Songs To Listen To (Fan Post)

When I began compiling a list of the the top 101 Drake songs, I conferred with several colleagues and learned there were many differing opinions about what songs should be on the list. I briefly toyed with the idea of pitting all of Drake’s loyal fans among my co-workers against one another in a Hunger Games fight-to-the-death scenario against the backdrop of Times Square. However, not wanting to wind up in the slammer, I concluded that the most diplomatic and least murderous thing to do would be to invite my office pals to submit their own lists. I thought it best to try to preserve a civil work environment, not to mention my longstanding policy of avoiding contact with the Human Resources department. So while we didn’t battle it out in a conference room or some such nonsense, each one of us faced an internal battle — choosing the top Drake songs out of the hundreds of favorites. As you can tell from the results of our efforts, it wasn’t easy (some of us got a little greedy with 20 strong lists). While the usual suspects like “Find Your Love” and “Show Me a Good Time” made appearances, there were a few surprises in the music tastes among the Drizzy Drake office folk.

We went back as far as 2004. A lot of Drake’s songs were, of course, featured on mixtapes. In some songs, he is featured with other artists. But regardless of how he is involved with the song, one thing is obvious — the man makes great music. So, in no particular order, I am pleased to present my take on the top 101 songs by Drake.

1. Drake – “Something”. Call me weird, but I’ve got to say I love Drake’s singing more than his rapping, though some may choose to differ. “Something”, from way back in 2___, is one very incredible song that I still find myself listening to, even now in 2012.

2. Drake – “Don’t U Have A Man” (featuring Dwele & Little Brother). The Comeback Season mixtape has some true gems on it that even now feel like classics. This song shows a side of Drake that not many people know, the side which is almost borderline neo-soul. Even in that genre, he manages to shine like a star.

3. Drake – “Crew Love” ft. The Weeknd. Have you ever been in love? I mean real love? Unconditional love? Only some of us have truly been blessed to know what that feels like. This song embodies that feeling.

4. Drake – “Find Your Love”. This one showed Drake’s maturation into a respectable singer, rapper and overall performer.

5. Drake – “Enjoy Ya Self” featuring Slakah the Beatchild. Amazing song! Drake doesn’t use the voice box but instead he lets his natural talent do what it does best.

The Top 25 Best Drake Songs of All Time

I’ve heard all these songs before, but it’s only after life happens that songs start to talk to you, and have relevance. They are the songs that you can’t help but close your eyes to—the songs that are so beautiful, so alive, so longing, so emotional, that you feel the true transcendent power of art: what George Steiner calls “the most ‘ingressive’, trans-formative summons available to human experiencing.”

This was the hardest list for me to compile. Even though there is more to come in the future, these are the best of the best for now. Some songs were hard to leave out, but in the end these were your choices.

25.) Drake – “Fireworks, feat. Alicia Keys”

Fireworks reminds me of the feeling you get when you step out on your own, or try something new for the first time. It arouses emotions in your heart similar to when you fall in love, or brings out the kind of smile that lights up your face, when you realize that the dream of which you once spoke has become the reality that you are living. Alicia Keys’s voice adds the perfect touch.

24.) Drake – “Closer to My Dreams”

This is surely a joint that could hold its own in a club or in constant playback mode on your own CD player. Drake offers up a refreshing effort with lush harmonies, creative instrumentation and ingenious lyricism.

23.) Drake – “Free Spirit”

Doesn’t get any better than this! Drake’s got an awesome style and great sound on this track. I highly recommend this to any fans of neo-soul, R&B, and certain hip hop listeners as well. The track is a smooth, catchy, and overall excellent listen.

22.) Drake – “Houstonatlantavegas”

One of Drake’s classics. Houstonatlantavegas is a soothing incredible song. Drake has one of the best producers by his side, Noah “40” Shebib.

21.) Drake – “Fear”

As a listener you are required to become reflective. Even if you do not like the music you WILL walk away with an understanding of self. And if not with an understanding, than surely with questions. “Fear” is inspiring, revealing, honest, and real.
