Top 10 Andrew McMahon Songs

...according to me, and in reverse order for dramatic affect. Disclaimer: I never got into Something Corporate so this is 90% just a Jack's Mannequin/Andrew McMahon ranked list. Accompanied by favorite lyrical passage from each.
10Jack's Mannequin
People and Things

"Amy, I" - one of 2 good songs from this

Amy I
I may never feel this way again
I never felt this kind of cold
9Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness

"High Dive" - To quote another fellow sputniker, this is a jam and a half.

Headlight in the driveway
You stand in the window waiting
The stars are out tonight
One million fires burning

Out there on the high dive
You dance with your headphones on
And I could watch you all night long
Dancing to someone else's song
8Jack's Mannequin
The Glass Passenger

"What Gets You Off" - Chorus is awesome.

Red fingernail polish
Peeling like a sunburn, oh
That black designer dress
Looks better underneath our feet
Your knees on the dirt
7Jack's Mannequin
Everything in Transit

"MFEO: Made For Each Other / You Can Breathe" - Summer romance in 8 minutes

You waited for me in the rain
In the parking lot
Cold hands, lips blue
Clothes stuck to you
You could have phoned me for a ride
It's a mess out there
you said the rain's the rain
Some air'd be good for you
6Jack's Mannequin
Everything in Transit

"Dark Blue" - Being in a crowd doesn't guaranty you aren't lonely.

And now all I can see are the planets in a row
Suggesting it's best that I slow down
This night's a perfect shade of
Dark blue
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room?
5Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness
Zombies on Broadway

"Birthday Song" - The growing up blues.

You married a good girl
She gave you this beautiful yellow-haired daughter
Come back to earth, kid
You know that you can't chase the stars underwater
So blow out your candles
It's better than letting them burn out
4Andrew McMahon
The Pop Underground

"Synesthesia" - Most inspiring and uplifting.

I saw this picture of my niece twisting high above the narrow beam
And my brother looked so proud, like he woke up in this perfect dream
And I've known you all my life, but I knew you long before that too
Lets go dancing to the songs we wrote when we lived in the shadow of the moon
3Jack's Mannequin
The Glass Passenger

"Swim" - Here's to beating cancer.

Swim for your life
Swim for the music
That saves you
When you're not so sure you'll survive
2Jack's Mannequin
Everything in Transit

"The Mixed Tape" - The quintessential summer jam, tons of feels.

Where are you now?
As I'm swimming through the stereo
I'm writing you a symphony of sound
Where are you now?
As I rearrange the songs again
This mix could burn a hole in anyone
But it was you I was thinking of
1Something Corporate

"Konastantine" - Most gorgeous track he's ever been a part of. So much attachment to this. Just going to leave it at this:

It's to dying in another's arms
And why I had to try it
It's to jimmy eat world
And those nights in my car
But this time I'm alone, and I don't see those stars
I'm not your star?
Isn't that what you said
What you thought this song meant
You thought this song meant

And if this is what it takes
Just to lie in my mistakes
And live with what I did to you
And all the hell I put you through
I always catch the clock it's 11:11
And now you want to talk
It's not hard to dream
You'll always be my Konstantine
