Kid Cudi’s Best Songs That Weren’t Singles


By Dejan Pralica (of, Confusion, Constant Gardner, and Brendan Klinkenberg

When you ask Kid Cudi fans to list their favorite Kid Cudi songs, you're not going to get a list of the singles (here's the proof). It makes sense. Kid Cudi is the type of artist who has proven time and time again that he can come up with sticky melodies and deliver hits, but he's also proven that he's capable of left-field production choices, experimental new directions, and anthems only for his core audience. He does what he wants, whether or not it's the popular thing to do, and because of it he's become a rare kind of artist—the kind that simultaneously enjoys mainstream success and a cult-like following. We know what Cudi's big hits were, but here are our picks for his best songs that weren't singles. Agree? Disagree? Let us know in the comments.

    How in the world does Sky Might Fall come in number 11? That’s a top 10 song if I’ve ever herd one.

  • Zac Younkins

    Agree on Red Eye and Marijuana. Great songwriting. But the lack of Internal Bleeding and Too Bad I have to Destroy You. Some of his most comprehensive works.

  • Bodhi Theroux

    Dennis, Hook Me Up a With Some More Of This Whiskey! Listen to it daily!

  • Vfor Vibes

    “Mojo So Dope” should def be on here…good list for people to find his stuff that wasn’t on albums though..

  • Mallary

    “There’s a reason why Cudi doesn’t get compared to other artists but other artists get compared to Cudi”. Great line. Couldn’t have said it better myself.

    ‘Creepers’ is seriously one of the greatest songs. I swear Cudi has made such an impact on my life I can only dream of meeting him one day. He’s my long lost brother. His words and the way he perceives the world is very similar to mine. I love this guy to the moon and back. Keep doing your thing, Cudi. xo.

  • RnT* @renatogiusti

    HEY YOU GUYS, STOP HATIN’ THAT PLAYLIST, ITS ONLY A FEW DOPE SONGS SELECTED BY THE PIGEONS, CUDI HAS LIKE 1021819`28129891 GORGEOUS MUSICS TO BE AT THAT LIST, THATS RIGHT. but Im agree w/ Cudi Zone. I only see cudi once at Lolla fest in Brazil, the most insane song was all the songs he played. xDD

  • TRWilliams

    I think the fact that majority of these tracks came during or before his first two albums says a lot.

  • Dan Karlin

    “The End” deserved recognition. C’mon, now!
