The Top Ten

You can interpret this song in so many ways... I love the tune of it and the passion in her voice. I feel like she's crying out to the listeners...
This is one of my favourite songs of all time. Though I don't listen to any other ellie goulding song, I just came to give this song my support!
So dreamy and full of bass. I love her vocals in it and the beat is very catchy. The lyrics are also very interesting.
[Newest]It's the one of her best songs ever...

The best song of ellie ever...
Look, I like this song, but its really far from being her best song. I get it, the people below really like this style, but come on. I felt the same way at first as well, but now the song is a bit boring to me. Guns and Horses is a still a great song, 3 years later though. Aside from that, congratulations to Ellie on this being her first UK #1 Ever!
This song is AMAZING! Trust me even my mum likes it aha
[Newest]I hear this song often

3Figure 8
I get this inexplicable feeling when I hear the song. For some obscure reason, the song is soothing... And when my heart's racing unusually fast, this song is nothing less than a tonic.
I love the music and her voice. It's all so powerful! Her voice is really strong and clear. And the music video is amazing! I love Ellie. She is my favorite artist. I am addicted and obsessed with her.
In my opinion this song should be number one, right next to starry eyed this song is so awesome very inspiring and I'm honestly shocked that all these other songs are "better" I am gonna look for a website that has starry eyed as #1, the. Figure 8 as number two and I guess now you know what kind of ellie goulding songs I like laugh out loud
[Newest]It's the absolute best of ellie goulding

4Love Me Like You Do
Love Me Like You Do is not only the best but the best song by Ellie Goulding along with Burn! This song gives me goose bumps. It takes me to another world. I always listen to it with my eyes closed. I've read the list earlier b4 but this time checked to see whether this song has reached the top spot or not. Unfortunately not yet. come on guys please vote for this song, its her best so far. But keep Burn intact on the 2nd spot. B4 this Burn was her best. Love this song & Burn! Love ya Ellie!
This song is simply the best among all the Ellie Goulding songs I've EVER heard. This song is simply MAGICAL, that strikes the chords of your heart and reaches deep into the soul. Its incredible! Just enchanting and mesmerizing. The soothing violin takes the breath away and you are left wondering how can a song be so magical? I'm simply in love with it and I'm sure you'll be too once you listen to this song. Make it number one, because it deserves it like none other!

Truly said by you. You just said exactly what I feel about this song- magic. Pure magic.
Number 10? How can this be so low?!? This song should be straight up at number 1! This is absolutely the best song by Ellie so far! This song takes you to another world. Another world of love, that you almost feel like you're in heaven. Please vote this number 1 guys! This completely deserves that spot! Love this song & Ellie
[Newest]Best song of ellie

5Anything Could Happen
This song is definitely her best song. Think about it: Its one of the, if not, the most deep and meaningful song I have ever heard. It's true is so many ways. Anything Could Happen at any time, that's true. It stands out more than any pop song today, its definitely that song that makes you stop and think about life for awhile and how spontaneous it can be. Point is: best song out of all of the other legendary songs that she has made.
The is definitely one of her best songs. Should be in the top three.
Sound is amazing. Music of this song is awesome. Whenever I m in trouble I like to listen these kind of song
[Newest]This song is her most addicting one ever

6My Blood
Best song of Ellie Goulding, yet. Wonderful lyrics intersect magnificently with the music. Definitely one of her best. Her harmonious voice of hers calms me down, terrifically.
Lyrics are perfect. This song pumps me up while I'm running because she can't die and is healing. "And God knows I'm not dying but I bleed now, And God knows it's the only way to heal now." Pure poetry. It gives me motivation to run faster. She can pump me up or calm me down with this song and several others. She is the best female singer this world has ever seen.
So brilliant and catchy, makes me want to break out in dance! The chorus makes my heart beat crazy! Keep it up Ellie :)


[Newest]The Perfect Song. !

7Starry Eyed
I LOVE STARRY EYED! My opinion would be for starry eyed to be number 1. It's a very touching and magical song! I love her songs and this is the song that I think is the best. I listen to this song everyday. It can never be old fashion! She is my inspiration. I do like Taylor Swift but she beats Taylor Swift in every way! Her songs are unbelievably incredible! I think she is the best singer in the world!
This song is my favorite song in this universe. She is just so passionate with her voice and inspiring. She has a brilliant speechless voice that is undeniably beautiful in my opinion. She is also my favorite artist.
This is a very well song, must be in top position in this chart, energy whom make from this song is very inspiracy
[Newest]I was listening to this while voting! Awesome song!

8I Need Your Love
I love that song from the darkest bottom of my heart
The chorus is what makes the song. Then Calvin Harris has the beat. She shows perfection with the way she sings the song. Without a doubt her best song.
1. I Need Your Love
2. Starry Eyed
3. Lights
4. Explosions
5. Figure 8
This song is amazing and the video is super cute too
[Newest]Just love it. Calvin Harris makes it all the more better..

WHY ON EARTH IS THIS SONG ALL THE WAY DOWN HERE?!?! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD? ;) haha but seriously, this song is truly incredible. So emotional and haunting, and it shows off the most amazing parts of Ellie's voice in a number of different ways. One of my favourite songs of all time for sure.
Excerpt: "You left my soul bleeding in the dark
So you could be king
The rules you set are still untold to me and I lost my faith in everything
The nights you could cope, your intentions were gold
But the mountains will shake
I need to know I can still make
Explosions... On the day you wake up."
Great song that's almost heavenly, love the harmony in the background as the song builds up. A song that proves what a great singer she is. This song has a fresh and unique sound compared to the generic dance and R'n'B which dominated the charts.
[Newest]I am a usually emotional person but listening to this song makes me even cry some times. its THAT beautiful! Exceptional voice / melody combination.

10Guns and Horses
I even wrote the whole song it's amazing I love the lyrics also the part were she says I left my house left my clothes door wide open heaven knows I love ellie goulding.
Great song. Best from the album Lights (in my opinion). Instrumental and vocals alike are flawless. If you fancy Coldplay and this song, you should check out a mash up between them, with viva la vida vocals and guns and horses instrumental. It's fantastic.
Love this song vote this one up higher please great tune great beat
[Newest]I just love this song. I guess I have to thank nigahiga because he said something about ellie goulding in a video and I checked out a couple ellie goulding songs but this song has been in my mind for 3 months laugh out loud

The Contenders

11Only You
Love this song. I don't know about anyone else, but it reminds me of Voodoo, for some reason. The vocals and the drum beat tempo are amazing, the lyrics simply astonishing. The part that sounds like a chipmunk is just the line "i'm begging you now" sped up, repeated, and high pitched. The "Only You" repeat in the second and last chorus is magical. Definitely most unique Ellie song from Halcyon. Worth at least 10 listens to the newcomer to get accustomed to it.
YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO THIS SONG IF YOU HAVEN'T! The tempo is the best part, honestly. The beats are killer
Not a single but should definitely be in her top 5 greatest songs.
[Newest]It should be in top 3.

12The Writer
HEY! I find this song so appropriate while doing the maths homework too! Perhaps this song has a special relationship with maths.. :D
But really an Excellent song... A Must listen to all...
Seems like I have known the melody for ever... Just love it. If not this then lights would have been my favourite...
This is such a touching and beautiful song. It helps me not get bored when I'm doing math homework haha
[Newest]This is it, I love this song.

13Your Song
I love this song so much I prefer her singing it to elton john
This song is so amazing, I like it better than the original
Most Romantic Song Ever heard.. Voice floats you in air
[Newest]I love this song, but it is just a cover

14Hanging On
I've fallen completely in love with this song and the uber talented artist since I listened to it in the victoria's secret commercial. Man this girl is talented with a capital T to the power infinity
Why is this amazingly gorgeous song all the way down here? It has a very unique feel, and has a beautiful beat and rhythm to it. I love the way her voice seems to simply synthesize with the effects. Best Ellie Goulding song ever!
When Active Child released this track in 2011 it was the most beautiful song I had ever heard. Ellie's cover is beautiful too. How could it not be when working with a master composition. I'm sure Ellie is very grateful to Active Child for his music
[Newest]Should be number 1 or 2 in the list.. The other top ones is burn and Hight for this

15How Long Will I Love You
Totally the perfect song
I think its her best composition.. Its just drive me away
This song makes me kinda cry. This one is an emotional classic. It can be one of the most beautiful songs ever to be recorded. Really.
[Newest]I fell in love with this song... So lovely

16Goodness Gracious
Such a joyful song with such great lyrics. The harmonies in the chorus sound amazing as well. This is at least top 20 quality!
It's just simply fantastic... Her style, lyrics, music... Everything is just so synchronized
Great song, very catchy. Believe it or not, it was co-written with Nate Ruess, lead singer of Fun.
[Newest]Thi song makes me smile every time, it helped me so much

There is something so uplifting about this song, the lyrics, music, everything. It's upbeat but still so calming. It makes you feel as if there are better days to come -- "I know it's not over, baby I've worked this out before its gonna be colder" I just love it and Ellie's voice sounds great as always.
Amazing song, when I hear it I'm near to cry and I don't know why. It's so amazing, music is stunning and voice of Ellie is so clear and hopeful. I love this with all my heart
This is one of the most unique songs I've ever heard.. It's completely on another level than all ellie songs

18Beating Heart
I love this song, not just because it was in Divergent, but it is just so unique. The sound in the background makes me feel like I'm floating if I close my eyes. That's true for most of Ellie Goulding's non mainstream songs but this song is really calm.
Such an amazing song! This song deserves to be in the top 10! I have been obsessed of this song ever since I heard it on Divergent.
I have been obsessed of this song ever since I heard it on Divergent. This song deserves to be recognize!
[Newest]I think this should be on the top

19Under the Sheets
I just wanted to say that this is my second favorite song from her. It's the words, music, beat, and the feeling it gave. She has such a sweet melodious raspy girly voice. I love her so damn much.

20Every Time You Go
This is definitely her best song. The guitar is sick and I love the passion she puts in her voice, it's like you can easily relate to the way she's feeling
This is, in my opinion, one of the best Ellie Goulding songs. I don't understand why it's so underrated. The lyrics are simple, it's catchy, and the guitar is ear-melting. I love this song a lot.
That's good song, and I'm like it...

Ellie sound great and its for the twilight soundtrack. And skrillex help with this song
Its great and deserves to be in the top five. I love the beat to it and having it be with skillrex is grea
This of the best songs I've ever heard, top 5 for me <3 remix with Skrillex amaziing!

22I Know You Care
A very heartwarming song, not her best but should at least be in the top 10 I mean seriously now? I actually really like this song it helps me when I'm down
One of her deepest songs to date. A very emotional, soul seraching song that digs into the the inner feelings of people's hearts.
I love this song! I'm surprised it's not in the top 10!

23Salt Skin
Such an awesome song, deserves a better rating than 9th! Really cool title and lyrics, almost like a poem.
Should be higher than 10th! Awesome lyrics and could listen to it all day!

24In My City

25Your Biggest Mistake
It's awesome really, this song should be on the
Music n tune are simply superb
This song is simply awesome
[Newest]One of her best song

I like this song it's very upbeat and catchy. But not in that Rebecca Black kind of way, I enjoy listening to this song when I'm not listening to Figure 8 or Starry Eyed
I feel so energized when listening to this song! It successfully lighten up my mood. This should be at top ten actually.

27Don't Say a Word
The intro and the instrumental at start is just orgasmic (0:50 onwards)
This song is so beautiful! I completely agree that this song has a beginning like no other.

28This Love (Will Be Your Downfall)
WHY IN THE WORLD IS THIS SONG HERE. This is my favourite of hers! You have no idea how the start of the music gives me chills and the lyrics are downright relatable. And God, I just love it. It deserves to be in the Top 10. Trust me - the best song to listen to during your "cold" days.
The song beginning is awesome. Must listen. I love it
I love this song too much
[Newest]A bit cheesy but it has grown on me.

29Hearts Without Chains
I can't for the life of me figure out why this is no. 46, one of the best songs she has ever done with a beautiful melody and lyrics, so much emotion and a great vocal performance! Ellie Goulding is incredible.
Ellie's voice is full of emotion here. Beautiful song!
This song is one of the best songs of her reissue of Halcyon Days! She should make this a single!

Amazing and emotional song about someone special being in your life just for a while, and then just having them leave :(

31You My Everything
Damn girl. I just can't stop listening to this. I wish I had someone to show it to, but it is just too awesome for that. Thanks for this song. It just gave me a little bit of happiness when I most needed it.
Any song in Skins Generation 4 should be number 1
Beginning to this song is so sweet and it just gets better from there!

32Wish I Stayed

Her best emotional vocal performance!

34Dead In the Water
This song makes my heart melt! It gives me this kind of feeling, I don't know what kind, but it makes me listen to it again and again and I never get enough of it...

It's A Nice Song, I just can't stop hear this song, with Calvin Harris, ellie make this song with her nice voice
There's a power in what you do, now every other day I'll be watching you

Was supposed to be on top ten list. This song is great.
[Newest]Best dancing song ever!

36I'll Hold My Breath
This song is unbelievably amazing and deserves so much more credit than what it is receiving now. To truly appreciate this song, you should read the lyrics as it plays. It is masterfully written and just touches the heart. It always makes me feel better and I truly believe that it is a musical masterpiece. Let's get this song on to the top!
Very deep and meaningful for any love. Deserves to be at least number two, under Anything Could Happen (1). The instrumental, vocals, and lyrics are so deep and meaningful. Sounds a bit like the "Last Christmas, I Gave You My Heart" hook.
The lyrics are simply sweet. love the beat and the tune. Sad to know that many people don't know this song:( I think it's worth to be at least in top 5..
[Newest]You'd truly appreciate this song once you've read the lyrics. Both the lyrics and tune go well together, giving a sweet appeal to the melody.

The beginning to this song is like waking up in heaven and just laying on a soft cloud with the nice warm sun beaming down on you. It just gives me chills but overall this song is awesome!

38Believe Me
Probably not my favourite, but definitely in the top 10 for me. Amazing somg

39Stay Awake
! I love the music! So magical! It's what I've been waiting for! The song that I go back to again and again!

41Little Dreams
In the beginning the song seems bored but them you start to feel the magic, because this theme is awesome
This song is a little bit obsessive, but I love it!

42High for This
This song is pure magic. Even better than the weeknds version. Its the kind of song you listen to when you just want relaxation.
It should be number 1 in the list
Wow! Top 10 for sure! I'm surprised!

Watch/read "Catching Fire" to piece it together. I adore how it reflects Katniss' confusion and sadness almost vividly.
You have to really listen and read the lyrics they are perfect for the real feelings in the movie. Wow. Amazing.
Oi love this song! Goes perfectly with the movie and book Catching Fire!
[Newest]Not on list but my favorite.
