Best The 1975 Songs

The Top Ten

1 Robbers Robbers

My favourite song, I always get so emotional listening to it. It's beautiful and I want a relationship like it. It's defiantly their best song and the video is amazing.

If you are a true fan of the 1975 and don't just like them for the "hype" then you should agree that this is their best song. The chilling guitar, the rawness of his voice and the climax around the bridge makes for a truly incredible song. I don't know how Matty can still sing this with so much emotion when they wrote it almost 10 years ago.

Amazing song, with a beat that is perfect. The lyrics are amazing and as other people have said "really tell a story." Easily my favorite song on that album.

It's just emotional. Matty's vocals are so raw and unadulterated. One of my favorites x

2 Sex Sex

Wanted to vote something that should be higher like Settle Down or Heart Out or Milk, but there's no denying Sex is their best song. Huge riff, Adam goes in on this one, and I just love it. Especially live - Sex is the closer now, and it's the one everyone goes mental for. Chants of "We want Sex! We want Sex! " were chorused through the audience.

This song just has that epic feeling that no other song can recreate. It's just an amazing rock out song that needs to be played in a huge stadium to do it's justice.

Sex is one of those unique upbeat songs you CANNOT get out of your head.

My favorite song ever, full of emotion and true

Why isn't this number 1 or 2? Chocolate or girls are the ones that need to be number 1!

Great song! Really catchy and the video is fun too, I love matt healy's voice in this song it's so interesting. very original and definitely my favourite song of theirs.

Something about this song gets me excited and makes me feel empowered!

My favorite THE 1975 song of all time...

I think this song made them popular because it's catchy and the voice of Matt really fits the song

I don't care if it's one of their most popular. It's up there for a reason, it's amazing. So catchy, well written, and that guitar lock is gorgeous.

I could never get sick of this song. You could sway to it and sing along for hours on end.

This song is their best. Somebody Else, Robbers and Sex are after.

5 You You

This one is quite possibly my all time favorite by the 1975. "You" has catchy lyrics and fun beats, and is perfect for any mood. I have never been able to exactly point out why I am so in love with this song, and maybe that's why I love it so much.

Best song by far. Catchy and lyrically clever. This is a well-known song, but it doesn't always get the credit it deserves from fans.

Perfect song to listen to, while enjoying the beach!

"milk", the hidden song at the end, is the best!

6 Me Me

Every time I listen to it I have to cry and because it is about guilt a lot of people (and me too) can relate to it. It's a very personal song that carries a lot of sadness. For me personally as a huge fan of The 1975 is it one of my favourite songs of them. Matty once said that it is his favourite song of the songs they have made so far too.

This isn't a song as much as it is a confession, and I think that's what makes it so incredibly moving. It's brave admitting your mistakes and your insecurities and even more difficult to make them not sound sappy or fake. This song does that so perfectly.

This song really messes me up. It's so beautifully and personally written and it's so real. There's no fancy metaphors or riffs or vocal tricks to disguise it: it is a raw and real song and it is so beautiful.

Just hearing Matty talk about this song is enough to make me emotional. The amount of people that can relate to this song on so many levels makes this song such an amazing piece of music.

7 Somebody Else

Though I can't decide on either robbers or somebody else, this is a really good song. I play this all the time. It just calms me down. I have really bad anxiety and this just helps, a lot. Even though you can't relate to the lyrics (like me), you'd still enjoy. I don't know, its just a very beautiful song.

This song is just so moving and beautiful, it is probably my all time favorite song by them, I can listen to this song like 5 times in a row, it's just so beautiful, it does somewhat get me in my feels though

Even though the lyrics to this song make you feel something entirely different, I like to listen to this song when I'm agitated because it calms me down. To be honest, all their songs just have this numbing effect of me.

This song moves me like no other. I have listened to since the day it came out at least 10 times a day and it has never gotten old (and never will)

8 The Sound

It's a new song, with a new sound, but it's just so catchy and the piano compliments Matty's voice. I love the new poppy sound, but hope that their old sounds stay with them.

Probably the most joyful, catchy and best song of 2016! I love it!

Best song of 2016. In my opinion. Next to Green Day's Bang Bang. - Tristan1975R5

9 Fallingforyou

The lyrics to this song are moving and emotional. Makes you want to sing out loud, and also cry at the same time. A very relatable song.

This is my favourite love song ever, I think everyone can relate to it because everyone fell in love at least once.

Fallingforyou is so bittersweet, it has beautiful lyrics that make you cry. But aren't they the best songs?

This song makes me feel so much

10 The City The City

The lyrics are so wrong, but so right at the same time. Beautiful song. Definitely one of the best.

The simple and very random lyrics in this song just make it right. I think this is one of the best.

I really love this song it makes me feel young

The lyrics to this always get to me, "i wanna see you but you're not mine"

12 Settle Down Settle Down

I honestly think this should be number 1, or Robbers, or Me. Those 3 are by far their best, but I can't get Settle Down out of my head. Damn, it's so good.

After many listens to their self-titled album, "Settle Down" was one I came back to quite often, I became Addicted to this song, easily my favorite from "The 1975 (2013)"

I don't understand how this isn't in the top 3 let alone not in the top 5! This song honestly makes me feel an indescribable amount of happiness like nothing even compares to it!

I think it should be on the 2nd or 3rd spot at least. It's just so catchy and I get LSS over it

13 Heart Out Heart Out

I love this song. I love this melody

15 Ugh!

It's just so awesome, don't why this is rated so lowly.

If you've ever been a drug addict, you will relate.

Listening to this work of art right now.

Amazing song!

17 A Change of Heart A Change of Heart

I love how this song makes references to their other songs such as robbers and the city, it's really interesting that you can relate this song back. This song is so unique, I think it's one of their best.

Not only is this my favourite by them, but one of my favourite songs ever, incredible feel and vibe, so atmospheric, and I love the quirky, unorthodox lyrics.

I love this song, it should at least be in the top 15!

I love how this song is telling a story

My favourite off the new album. It has that throwback to the old sound that I miss. - Tristan1975R5

19 Menswear Menswear

Has an intro which is too long but when Matt comes in it is just amazing. Definitely needed a longer full length song as it's too good. This and Sex are the best!

I know this song like the back of my hand and it still isn't old, and still gives me goosebumps (like Me, Loving Someone, Paris and Pressure do).

So simple, yet I am so compelled to dance each time I listen to 'Menswear.'

I literally love this song so much
