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 - World10s

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...

Awesome song, great lyrics and lovin the beat

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. )

I love the way they tied in the violin to this song. They never disappoint

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.

Amazing tune and Greek myths... This song is all I've ever wanted!

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.

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

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.

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

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

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? "

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

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."

I love this song too much, it is so well written and sung.

Definitely one of the most beautiful songs by Bastille, it should at least be in the top 5!

This song gives me shivers every time I listen to it. It has stunning lyrics and a chilling message and is extremely underrated.

Pompeii is not the best song by Bastille, it is the most popular. THIS is the best.

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

I love this song! It's amazing and deep.

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

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!

19No 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

This is probably my most favourite song by Bastille. It's a beautiful song! And I can't really explain how this song makes me feel, but its such an incredible song that's so touching and amazing!

Combining a modern song to excerpts of a cinematic masterpiece (Psycho) is no easy feat but Bastille have nailed it. Beautiful song.

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
