3Depth Over Distance

Unique, inspirational and moving. A work of art from Ben Howard. Absolutely stunning!

"Depth over distance was all I asked of you
And I may be foolish to fall as I do
Still there's strength in the blindness you fear"

Moving and compelling. Filled with raw emotion, this piece is so very organic and the lyrics are brilliant. Listening to it on repeat the entire afternoon

His most inspired, both emotionally and musically.

Love this! Too bad it is not on any of his albums...

Sentimental, true, beautiful. I can relate really well to the lyrics and it's just a really amazing song.

8Promise

Listen this song every day for 2 Years still I think that it is a song that makes me move forward and understand how to enjoy the small things in life. Love it

Lyrically fantastic. Extremely surreal feeling when listening to such a masterpiece.

This should honestly be number 1. The pure emotion is about as raw as can be, and it's a lyrical masterpiece.

First song I've ever heard from Ben Howard. Loved it!

Such an emotional song with beautiful lyrics! All of his songs are amazing but this one... Is so perfect!

Should be so much higher ♡ I'd probably rank it in my top three from Every Kingdom, alongside Old Pine and Only Love. This song is just complete perfection and so powerful yet relaxing at the same time

AMAZING SONG. It's so dark, but beautiful when he performs it live. Such great lyrics and deep meaning.

Amazing song... Powerful lyrics and all. Should be #1!

The Contenders

11Under the Same Sun
12I Forget Where We Were

Genius tune. Everything is brilliant from the guitar, guitar effects, vocals, lyrics, drums etc. A true masterpiece that is too underrated.

Heard it on the radio without hearing the name, keep singing the lyrics till I found out the name.

Its just that good of a song.

One of his best for sure, should be higher on the list :-)

What, this makes me cry even in the morning...

Nearly moves me to tears every time I hear it.

This song is so good. Eveytime I hear it it moves me. Can't get enough. So touching.

When he switches from "you laugh like you've never been lonely" to "you love like you've always been lonely" really moves me

'Oh you'll love him with all of your body... that's alright with me' - goose bumps yo

He made this song his own way and yet even though Carly Rae Jepsen wrote the song Ben Howard made it it should be one of the greatest cover songs of all time
