If we asked you, ‘What’s the best part about any Marvel production?’ Some would say VFX, others would suggest the names of different superheroes. But have you been listening closely to the magic happening in-between the scenes? This one’s about the Best Endgame Songs, a magic you can never forget.
It’s been more than 3 years since the release of the 2nd highest-grossing movie of all time, Avengers Endgame, and nostalgia still hits hard when an Endgame tune pops up somewhere. Thanks to Alan Silvestri for creating songs that are worth remembering.
Usually, when a movie is released, on-screen actors are given full credit and receive the popularity that comes along but the efforts of talented individuals like VFX artists/editors, camera-men/women, stunts person, composers, etc are somewhat overlooked. These are the people responsible for bringing life to an otherwise bland release.
Alan Silvestri is one of the best American composers with a whopping net worth of $100 million. His notable compositions include: ‘Back To The Future, ‘Forrest Gump’, ‘ Who Framed Roger Rabbit’, ‘Cast Away,’ etc. He was also awarded Grammy for Best Score Soundtrack For Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media for ‘Believe’ from ‘The Polar Express’.
We have created a list of all the best Endgame songs and have ranked them from best to good, because its Silvestri we’re talking about and he hasn’t made a bad song in his entire life.
Here are the 35 Best Endgame Songs Ranked:
Topping the list of the Best Endgame songs, ‘Portals’ is by far the most streamed song and there’s a reason for that. Alan Silvestri claimed that the process of composing the ‘Portals’ track for Avengers Endgame was all about uniting and “getting the team back together.” And that it was necessary that ‘Portals’ reflected the very same thing.
2. MAIN ON END
‘Main On End’ like the name suggests, definitely made the end credits of Endgame a delightful grandeur to watch.
3. THE REAL HERO
‘The Real Hero’ is ranked third on our list of the best endgame songs for a reason.
Take a minute and think about who the real hero was.
We are pretty sure the answer is obvious, it’s the hero who sacrificed his life for the greater good of humanity, Tony Stark.
But, according to Joe Russo, the real hero was actually someone else. Infact, it was so small that it’d be better to call it SOMETHING else!
Joe Russo had told in an interview, that “it was a mouse who saved the entire universe.” What he meant by that was, out of all the 14,000,605 possible futures Dr. Strange saw, in only one of them, an accident occurred out of sheer randomness which resulted in Ant-Man coming out of the quantum realm.
Now, if he never made it out, traveling back in time would have never been possible and half of the world would never come back.
Who do you think the real hero was?
4. TOTALLY FINE
The first song of the track. It plays shortly after Thanos is beheaded by Thor, via a “one-shot.”
The rest of the track is filled with an aetherial ambiance of space as the scene transitions to a nonchalant Stark and Nebula drifting off into the deep voids of space. What a beautiful way of opening the album!
It plays when the entire Avengers team is standing in circles, waiting to travel back in time to retrieve the infinity stones.
Guess whose arrival we’re talking about?
The track plays when Captain Marvel returns to Earth with Tony Stark and Nebula after rescuing them and the track made sure it had a melancholic tinge to it.
7. NO TRUST
It plays right after Captain Marvel prepares to take off to fight Thanos.
8. YOU DID GOOD
‘You Did Good’ is played in by far the saddest scene in the entire MCU and is one of the most emotional songs in the list of best endgame songs. It starts off after Tony Stark used the infinity stones and is lying next to a piece of rubble, with his half-charred face and the Avengers assembled beside him. The dissonance used by Silvestri in ‘You Did Good’ is out of this world.
9. GET THIS THING STARTED
It is played in between The Great war sequence.
10. GO AHEAD
A very melancholic pass down of the super-heroic torch to the next generation was portrayed. Melancholic notes start off when we see Captain America sitting on a bench, all old and weak. But it slowly transitions to hope when Falcon approaches the old man and he passes him his shield.
11. NOT GOOD

13. WHATEVER IT TAKES
14. THE ONE
15. WORTH IT
16. THE HOW WORKS
