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.

Great song just loving it

2Love 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!

-Rini

Truly said by you. You just said exactly what I feel about this song- magic. Pure magic.

I have an outrageously huge crush on a famous athlete and best wide receiver The patriots have ever had. He is someone who I've met a few times. For some reason this song makes me think of him every time I hear it. I'm a pilot and travel a lot for work and blast this song frequently in my hotel rooms, in the car, when I'm working out, running, riding on the train. Sometimes with my eyes closed or while I am ironing my uniform. It's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. Always gets my heart pounding and my mind racing. You can slow dance to it as well.

This song... It takes you to a completely different dimension. Listen to it at night and look trough the window, it will just be wonderful.

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

This song is so catchy and it gives me feels

4Anything 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

Anything could happen is a true song

5Burn

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

Great song to bang my head to. This song, just as almost all of Ellie's songs, are very catchy but unique. THe lyrics are very poetic and actually meaningful ( unlike many popular songs these days). It's rare for a song that isn't explicitly about relationships or sex to triumph the way this song did on Billboard. Way to go!

It is a very nice song

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

Amazing lyrics.

7I 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

8Explosions

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.

She is the opera, literally. This song is about her father and a boy. It's about losing someone for good and realizing that you're going to make it even though it's a great burden. It's exceedingly emotional and it can be analyzed a different way every time you listen to it. The opera in the back. Her voice is perfect thought the performance. She is a believer in perfection and she knows it's perfect. That's why this is her best song and she is the best musician of my generation. You know who also believed in perfection? Michael Jackson. I just think she's better because she writes more than him.

OH MY GOD.
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."
LISTEN TO IT AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND

So beautiful, so authentic. This song has no funny business, it is her voice in its true form.

9Starry 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!

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

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

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

I love this song from divergent

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!

How is this not in the top 10? This is such a great song and thank god it is not overplayed in the radio like all of her other song. Even though this song is easily one of her best. Lyrics, melody and a great climax. A perfect pop song

It's just simply fantastic... Her style, lyrics, music... Everything is just so synchronized

This song makes you feel immensely happy

15Halcyon

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.

18In My City

Very underrated. Her voice is sooting and demanding. It's smooth yet alert. Great moral to the song when you read it. Makes me miss home whenever I hear it. Then it makes me fly back because it gets to my head. In my city.

I love this song it's the best ever PLEASE listen to it it's amazing

19On My Mind

This has got to be one of the best Ellie Goulding songs yet with it's catchy beat and excellent
Vocals, and it is on everyone's mind after securing a spot in our top 50 songs.
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.

So catchy. this is one of best song from her album Delirium. It has secured its position in my top five, don't matter what is it's position in this list.
