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!

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

Her voice is really very incredible

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

It literally "BURNS" you.

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

Nice song only Ellie

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 :) - Mikemyesha

I think her vocals are very unique

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

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

The Best one of all, this song is pure magic. Her voice is so good, it reaches my soul. I have been listening this since 1 month and feels like new experience every time

9Guns 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

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 - PinkCyclops

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.

I am a usually emotional person but listening to this song makes me even cry some times. its THAT beautiful! Exceptional voice / melody combination.

This has got to be one of the best Ellie Goulding songs yet with it's catchy beat and excellent

This is definitely a song I would recommend to everyone, and anyone who can't find it in them to press that little orange "Vote" button for this song has either been living under a rock or is someone's old grandpa.

This song is on my mind!

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.

It should be in top 3.

12Hanging 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

Such a great song. Powerful chorus, great verses... It is so emotional, not my favourite though

14Goodness 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.

Goodness gracious is her best

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

I love this song, but it is just a cover

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.

This song, well it has this aura of it, and it stays. The way Ellie cries "It's gonna be better" has this uplifting, yet incredibly dark spirit in the song and how her husky voice carries it on with such precision and emotion never fails to kill me whilst listening.

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 song need more attention. Such great song.

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.

This song is absolutely beautiful, and should definitely be in the number one spot. If you haven't heard it, go listen to it now.

18Under 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.


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.

20Don'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.
