The Top Ten

Pompeii
Best Song EVER.
It's about a city built in the wrong place
And the eruption of a volcano torn it to pieces!

Of course this is a brilliant song but I think it's like with Imagine Dragons... it's their most famous and mainstream song therefore people vote for it but there some other songs of theirs that I think are WAY better.
I agree that the lyrics are sublime, however, the music is too pop/electronic especially considering that they could have done A LOT better, using the same lyrics. The build up to the song ties into the epic nature of the song, but, it falls apart after that... :( Don't know why it's so very popular
[Newest]Literally the best song I have ever heard... If you don't know it your not living.

2Laughter Lines
This song would have been no1 if they have put a video on this one.. its way better than pompeii to me so this song became underrated and pompeii become over rated.. This would have also been a billboard hit.. especially that violin part and the spooky tune.. we will sink into this master piece.. GREAT JOB!
This song is everything that make Bastille amazing. The tune, the vocals, the lyrics. You can't find music like this anywhere else. The line just before the chorus where Dan's sings "as you he-uh-uh-uh-eld me duh-uh-uh-uh-own, you said..." literally makes your eyes widen with awe. Unbelievable good.
Sounds like the killers mixed with Coldplay mixed with amazing! I would vote for oblivion but this is more underrated. Plus these are some of the best lyrics of 2013. One of my favorite songs on one of my favorite albums (its on the extended edition of bad blood. )

3Flaws
Absolutely amazing song, the tune and the words-Enough said my absolute favourite song, should be number 1!
By far one of the best, better then Pompeii should be #1
Amazing song.. Amazing Lyrics.. Much better than Pompeii
[Newest]I love this song, can't stop listening to it!

4Icarus
Really -. - the only reason that Pompeii is at the top is because it's overplayed on the radio, its good but Icarus is way better
Best song..! You just cannot match its quality...! Bastille rocks..!
I love Greek Myths and Bastille, so when listening to the album, this song came up I was out. It's so blah (good blah) and indescribable I just can't even.
[Newest]The best Bastille song in my opinion! It tells a solid story and gets stuck in your head, but in the most wonderful way!

5Oblivion
This really is the MOST beautiful song ever, bastille have done an amazing job at this, such a gorgeous melody - voice of an angel Dan
This should be right at the top. It's amazing.
The lyrics are incredibly thought-provoking and simply mesmerising. Oblivion should definitely be at the top of this list.
[Newest]Gives me shivers. definitely one of Bastille's best songs. Love the violins, love the heart in this song

6Things We Lost In the Fire
Amazing song! The vocals are simply amazing and it is soulful and catchy at the same time! It's definitely barely behind Pompeii for me
Brilliant song. I believe it should be in the top three, along with Pompeii and Icarus. Just my opinion though. These are all really great songs.

sammyjay

This is really really good song came out 2013

7Of the Night
This Song is awesome! I simply love its starting.. should be in top 3 at least
This was good I love this
This is the best song of Bastille. Vote for this, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!
[Newest]This is and awesome song! Its really catchy and I get it stuck in my head a lot.

8Laura Palmer
Such a good song especially since it's about the character Laura Palmer from the show Twin Peaks. Brilliant show and song to go with it. watch the show!
Absolutely great, it made my day
This needs to win. Icarus and Flaws were my favorite and then I heard this and I don't even listen to anything else
[Newest]I love the way this song's feel, it feels mysterious and puts me into a trance whenever I hear it!

9Bad Blood
Fantastic song of all
It has all the amazing elements needed for a good song, plus it has seamless transitions; the beginning sounded like EDM, Bastille turned it into rock. Plus it just sounds great. Can't stop listening to it!
The best song by Bastille! Wicked bass line, awesomely simple yet perfect drum beat to compliment the vocals n bass, and the wicked little mini-roll puts it WAY over the top.
[Newest]This deserves to be about 2nd or so.

10What Would You Do?
Wow, this song is very underrated. It makes me want to cry every time, and it disappoints me such a beautiful song is only at 14. Deserves to be somewhere in the Top 5 at LEAST.

PiercedVeil

Such an awesome song with a great message. Needs to be more popular!
This song tells such a great story that really asks the question, "What would you be willing to do to protect the people you love and yourself? "
[Newest]The song was so powerful- with such deep message- It made me cry. I didn't really see that coming.

The Contenders

11Daniel In the Den
Not many artists can turn a well known bible story into a song so hats off to the boys for that. This song is so heart warming and should not be eighth
It's crazy because people say dan is not Christian but he's writing songs in the bible so I don't know I should know since he is my husband laugh out loud I wish. :-)
I'm not Christian but I LOVE this song. It tells a bible story so personally.

"For every king that died, oh they would crown another."

12Get Home

13Sleepsong
I LOVE this song! The first song I heard by Bastille was Pompeii, but this is the one that got me hooked. The words and tune are so emotive and soulful, very meaningful and catchy.
This should be right up there
Don't talk to strangers

14Haunt
Definitely one of the most beautiful songs by Bastille, it should at least be in the top 5!
Pompeii is not the best song by Bastille, it is the most popular. THIS is the best.
If laughter lines is number three how can haunt be no:23?
It should be no:2 then,
It's so down here maybe because you all havnt lent your ears to this nostalgic masterpiece... please vote it higher!
Because it desreves that spot!

15The Driver
This song is one of the best songs ever! Why isn't it in the top 10?

16No Angels
The song is so beautiful and not only the voices but the background music as well. I'm glad that I was able to find a song like this to take the part as the calm breeze in my crap storm of a life!
This song is beautiful I listened to it on repeat for days! If you haven't heard it yet you are missing out it is PERFECTION
Although Pompeii didn't do the mix of this song (that was The Sound You Need) I still think it is a brilliant combination.
[Newest]THE BEST SONG. Everything is perfect. I've had it in repeat for several weeks, still didn't get tired of it.

17Overjoyed
This song really speaks to me. Its a very emotional song for me and makes me think of the relationship between me and my mother. Its a wonderful song and it really speaks to me.
The bittersweet melody is amazing. This song is awesome, the melody is out of this world.
This was my favorite

18The Draw
The buildup is so intense in this- watch it live and when the actual drums come in, Daniel goes crazy. His dance moves make my life. It's so underrated; I swear everyone just knows Pompeii and that's it. Pompeii is great, of course, I love it too, but Bastille has some insane tunes that few people pay attention to, The Draw included
! I downloaded this on a whim, started listening and it was good but not great... Until I got to about 2:37mins, I then realised the whole song is just a massive build up to 2:37 with drums coming and fading away throughout, a couple moments before 2:37 you get the chorus in a capella then 2:37 hits you, a stunning little electric guitar clash and it explodes, glorious... Vocals, lyrics, drums, guitar arrangement and composition all perfect, must listen... (If your listening where EQ presets are available id suggest Electronic preset :D)
This song is the best. I really really love it, cause I hear in them a bass guitar. It's amazing!
[Newest]2.37. You people evidently gave up before 2.37. Have you even LISTENED?

19Durban Skies
Wow! It's so beautiful... I felt like I am in heaven! <3 love it so much!
When you hear this song you will feel like you are visiting a beautiful city where clouds came down and rain makes the city beautiful...
I think this song is about dan's native place where he lived his younger life
I love this song, I love how it is about Dans parents wedding in South Africa, it shows so much emotion and passion
Why has no one even mentioned this yet?

20Poet
Such an awesome song. I had to write a poem for school and was so uninspired, but listened to this song and felt motivated and excited! This should be more popular!
It's so good I love it so much I sang it to my college and they love it
Poet is amazing:) So sweet!
