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!
Watch on YouTube NOW!
Also please look at the Krazy Kats Remix from
Clouded Sounds

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.
Really really good song with a rich compose of melodies.
A song that you must listen...
[Newest]I loved it all... Bastille is epic-al... You guys rocks... Dan smith's voice is really cool...

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. )
[Newest], I can't believe I never heard this song before. I must be their best song. So much emotion in this one. I like the melody and the lyrics. It's perfect.

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]This song is just 😍🙌🏼

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.

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.

8Bad 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]My parents nearly killed me because I repeatedly played this song for an hour.

9Laura 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!

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]My absolute favorite Bastille song, it's extremely beautiful and I love how it tells a story. JUST LISTEN!

The Contenders

11Get Home

12Daniel 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."

13Haunt
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!

14Sleepsong
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 song is one of the most meaningful
This should be right up there
Don't talk to strangers

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

16Remains

17Falling

18Requiem for Blue Jeans
Such an imaginative version. This song really captured my heart and is severely underrated. Dan Smith's voice is so heavenly and just suits the emotionality of the song perfectly.
The chorus in this is simply heavenly. Dan Smith has one of the best voices I have ever heard!

19Overjoyed
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

20No 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]I can listen to this song everyday its just so touching and amazing
