The Very Best Switchfoot Songs

The Very Best Switchfoot Songs

One of the most consistently good bands out there is Switchfoot. Since they first burst onto the scene with “A Beautiful Letdown,” they’ve become one of the world’s most beloved bands. Most of that is thanks to Jon Foreman, the band’s front man. He’s a prolific songwriter, responsible for the best Switchfoot songs. Plus, he always interacts with the crowd, unlike many other performers.

Switchfoot has continued to make music for decades, but none of their albums have had the same success of “A Beautiful Letdown.” Since then, Foreman has continued to improve his songwriting, and has even released some solo work that’s worth a listen. But today I’m writing about Switchfoot, which is why I’ve decided to discuss the very best Switchfoot songs. If you haven’t heard any of these, you can find all of them on Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, or YouTube. You can download any of these apps on your phone to listen to your favorite music while you’re on the go.

The Best Switchfoot Songs


This is one of the great Switchfoot songs that wasn’t on “A Beautiful Letdown.” It’s vintage Switchfoot, and was released on the album “Nothing is Sound,” which came out in 2005, two years after “A Beautiful Letdown.”

On Fire

This is one of the band’s slower songs, featured on “A Beautiful Letdown.” It has an unforgettable piano melody that I absolutely love. If you’re a fan of Switchfoot’s music, there’s no doubt that you’ll remember this one.

Meant to Live

This used to be my favorite song by Switchfoot, until “Dare You to Move” eventually took over. “Meant to Live” has a great message and an amazing intro lead-guitar riff that brings the energy.

Switchfoot is known for their live performances.
Switchfoot always puts on an amazing show.

Dare You to Move

“Dare You to Move” is definitely one of the best Switchfoot songs. It was also on “A Beautiful Letdown,” and is one of the best songs I’ve ever heard. Not only does it have a lot of movement, but the melody goes to many different places.

Only Hope

This is the song that became famous when it was in the movie “A Walk to Remember.” Mandy Moore sang it in the film, but it’s every bit as good when Foreman sings it. It’s a tender song, and still one of the greatest that Foreman has written.

Your Love is Strong

This is the best solo song Jon Foreman has released. Because there are a lot of people who have yet to hear his solo work, this is a good place to start. It’s more of a worship song, but I think many people can still connect with its lyrics.
