15. Play Date (Cry Baby, 2016)

“I like this because it tells us that you can tell people if you feel uncomfortable or that it’s over It’s so nice to listen to! It makes me want to get up and dance!”

14. Training Wheels (Cry Baby, 2016)

“I love this song. Lots of people hate this and I get it. The reason why I love this is because it’s a sweet love song. I find this song soothing and calm for me. Whenever I’m stressed I would play this to help me with my stress.”

13. Sippy Cup (Cry Baby, 2016)

“I love the message to this song: sometimes you just can’t change things in life, like kids being depressed even if u give them everything they want. ABSOLUTE favorite SONGG. I think that Mel’s underrated songs are the best songs in my opinion, e.g. cake, play date, teddy bear, sippy cup, maybe training wheels… this doesn’t mean I don’t like her other songs they r so amazing I love her style!”

12. Milk and Cookies (Cry Baby, 2016)

“This song comes right after Tag, You’re It on the Cry Baby album. The Cry Baby album is supposed to be a story about a character named Cry Baby. In Tag, You’re It Cry Baby gets kidnapped by the Bad Wolf Ice Cream Man, and so in Milk and Cookies she poisons the wolf with milk and cookies and escapes. The line “Ashes, Ashes” refers to killing someone because people are often burnt when they die. It will all make a lot more sense if you watch the Tag, You’re It/Milk and Cookies double feature music video.”

11. Alphabet Boy (Cry Baby, 2016)

“This song hits almost every thing I love about Melanie’s style. Its creepy and outlandish, yet childish and funny. She’s always had a childlike approach to lyrics, and it really shows here. And I love how her lyrics sound over this production. While songs like Dollhouse have more impact, no other Melanie Martinez song succeeds so much at being a Melanie Martinez song.”

10. Cake (Cry Baby, 2016)

“My definite favorite, and that’s saying something like a huge Crybaby. For starters, the tune is wonderful and catchy, and I get chills down my spine when I hear the intro EVERY TIME. Plus, the meaning is beautiful, and cake is such a great way to express it. As her theme is ‘toddler’ or ‘baby’ or whatever it’s pretty natural for someone to lick the buttercream off a cake then discard it. “

9. Pacify Her (Cry Baby, 2016)

“Oh I love this song! It’s like a ballerina would dance too. Maybe we should do that. If anyone is a fan of Melanie Martinez, please make a fan art about Crybaby dressed as a ballerina while wearing a pacifier…please?”

8. Soap (Cry Baby, 2016)

“The song has a really relatable meaning; its about wanting to “wash out your mouth with soap” after confessing your feelings for someone, and taking that risk to reveal your true feelings and opening up to someone.”

7. Tag, You’re It (Cry Baby, 2016)

“This song is so catchy and a little mysterious. It can be creepy at times but the whole song is just so soft and lyrical which is basically Melanie’s voice.”

6. Carousel (Cry Baby, 2016)

“This song is very soothing to listen to. The part where she was trapped on the ride and started blowing chunks had to be my favorite. I loved her voice there. There’s just something about it I just loved.”

5. Mrs. Potato Head (Cry Baby, 2016)

“I love how she is trying to teach us a lesson but in a weird way, she makes sure we love ourselves on the inside and out, this song is just really nice and it’s very underrated but again I love this song.”

4. Cry Baby (Cry Baby, 2016)

“The first song in the album and the best. The song is about how a girl (Crybaby) gets bullied but she doesn’t let them get the best of her. Also relatable about how sometimes when a little thing goes wrong, you just get very angry and sad and you don’t know why.”

3. Mad Hatter (Cry Baby, 2016)

“You think I’m crazy, you think I’m gone. I know you’re crazy too, I know your gone, its probably the reason that we get along.” This is the verse I always think of when I think of my friend and I. I am really eccentric, and at first I didn’t think she was. We’ve known each other our who lives but honestly this song is about our friendship.”

2. Pity Party (Cry Baby, 2016)

“Over all the other songs in Cry Baby (I like them all and they all have such great lyrics with hidden messages and meanings. I love it), I feel I just relate to this one the most. It has a chilling, but still catchy rhythm.”

1. Dollhouse (Dollhouse, 2014)

“I don’t like this song I am literally obsessed with it! while I love all her songs especially pity party and mad hatter but seriously none can top dollhouse for me.”
