The great part about music is that you can write a song about anything, but for this list we're ranking the best songs about floating. There are songs about floating in space, floating on water, or even just having the feeling of floating. What's your favorite floating song? Whether it's rock, rap, country, or anything in between, we want you to vote up your favorites on this list of songs about floating. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good floating 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 floating songs playlist.

Some of these songs were huge hits like "Float On" by Modest Mouse. Others, however, or lesser known songs by beloved artists like "Floating Bridge" by Eric Clapton and "Haunted Floating Eye" by They Might Be Giants. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has float in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about floating, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
