The great part about music is that you can write a song about almost anything, but for this list we're ranking the best songs about smells. These songs are about bad odors, fragrant scents, stuff that stinks, and more. Do you have a favorite smell song? Whether it's rock, electronica, hip hop, or anything in between, we want you to vote up your favorites on this list of songs about smelling. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good smell songs are missing, so feel free to contribute to the list. We've included YouTube videos to accompany the songs when available, so think of this page as a smell songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include "Stop and Smell the Roses" by Mac Davis, "Rain Smell" by Baths, and "I Smell Trouble" by Buddy Guy. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has smell in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about smelling something, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
