Shake It Out
Awesome! Such powerful vocal. Florence is amazing and this is some of her best work! The lyrics are so intriguing. Great work Florence!
This song is simply amazing! The strong vocals and sound is mind-blowing! What I love most is the meaning of this song. About rebirth and starting over again with acceptance and determination

Bella swan (nada salah) this is the most sad song ever

3Dog Days Are Over
Love Cosmic Love, but Dog Days are Over is so much better. It is just amazing, her voice in the song is beautiful and the instrumentals, it is catchy with good lyrics and an all round amazing song. Definitely deserves to be number 1!
Every time I hear this song it touches me right inside my soul. I forget all my problems and I just feel so good. Just love it!

4Cosmic Love
Amazing song, I have listened to it at least 50 times in the last week. It makes a very good dance song and you can dance to it forever without feeling like it's getting old. I dance the same style choreography as florence is in the video, and it makes for a very intense workout~ love love love this song!
I absolutely love this song! Heard a few seconds of it on the trailer for Water for Elephants and I couldn't get it out of my head! In just about a week I've listened to it more than 800 times
Every time the drums begin, I can feel my heart racing!
[newest]
The song is amazing!. Honestly a number 1 for me!

5No Light, No Light
Catchy... powerful and thumpking... No Light No Light creates an aura of dark, moody, magic. It is as engrossing as any song she has made.
Wow. Just wow. This is such an amazingly beautiful song. The second time I heard the song I couldn't help but obsess with it! "No light, no light! In your bright blue eyes. I never knew daylight could be so violent" Just amazingly beautiful. Congragulations Florence and the machine on a superb song.
Beautiful song and You just don't get bored of it, it's catchy and the lyrics hit you
[newest]
Best of Florence by far!

6What the Water Gave Me
Transcendently epic. A powerhouse of a song, and completely magnificent.

The harps, guitars and gospel choir are all typical of Florence and are part of its brilliance.

A majestic song!
Really a nice song, I love it so much. Florence really puts her heart into this and it obviously shows. I would have to say that this song should be higher up
This song is so inspiring and I personally think it uses great power and she really puts her heart into it. This song is very good and it's very catchy.
In my opinion, it should be number 1!

7Seven Devils
This is one of the most haunting tracks I've ever heard. Creating a track like this is nothing short of genius. Listen to this once and it'll stay in your head for days. It should be a higher up the list
Thid is the most incredible songs I've ever heard about another spirits in this world. I knew this songs from Revenge T.V. series, on the last episode.. Very great!
This is just beautiful... I can't believe it's not #1... The song is just so dark and enchanting... Just listen to it! You won't be able to forget a song like this one... And it's tunes are just so amazing! Genius... !
[Newest]This is amazing. Work has definitely gone into this song. I can tell because not only are the lyrics haunting but florence's voice is haunting as well as the backing track. I think I've listened to this song 100 times or 1000.

8Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)
7th? I'm sorry but this song deserves to be up there, the beautiful harp, her amazing, haunting voice, the heartfelt lyrics make it one of my favourite songs ever
The instrumentals and her amazing voice, plus the meaning of the song, make it an epic song... Like all her songs. This is the best though, because no matter how much I listen to Flo or this song and no matter what I go through, this song always is a pleasure to listen to a million times.
Simply and amazing song with fantastic harps and choirs. Florence is just awesome! Nothing conpares to her amazing voice and talent! Her new album is the best ever too!
[newest]
I absolutely LOVE this song! No words can really describe it at all!

9Spectrum
Excellent song with heavier arena rock and lyrics. It sounds kind of unusual for an f+tm song, but it perfectly fits them in the end, expressing a more powerful and shivering aspect of Florence, and satisfying those that wanted something less light than their previous songs. Actually, everybody goes on saying that shake it out, cosmic love, you've got the love, dog days are over are their best but I never really liked any of them. I think the three real f+tm masterpieces are spectrum, rabbit heart and what the water gave me. Anyway, keep up the splendid job Flo and you guys!
Such a beautiful song! The music, the voice, the rhythm are just awesome. Its one of my favorite songs. I think its one of florenceĀ's most powerful songs.
The chorus of this song literally sends chills down my spine every time I hear it. It's an incredible song that expanded my musical horizons. There aren't many things on earth as strong and beautiful as florence's voice in this song in my opinion.
[newest]
I adore this song

10You've Got the Love
This is possibly here most well known song, and although some might argue it is not her best, so many people, including myself were introduced to the great Florence through this song! It may not be number 1, but it definitely deserves to be in the top 10
This is the first song that introduced me to her music and I have to say after listening to most of her songs I still see this one as the best. You can feel the emotion she pored into this song. Although most people may not realize it
Awesome how can you not like this song it is possibly the most famous song here so if it is so famous then why is it number 10

The Contenders

11Howl
I love how much dreaming you can do. I have made stories to this and all florence songs make you believe and have hope and cry mostly. I am 11. And this already inspires me.
Love this song. I accidentally downloaded the song by mistake, but when I listened to it I absolutely loved it! One of the best songs of Florence and The Machine, but Cosmic Love stays my ultimate fave! Xoxo
I love this song its not just about a werewolf is her love and she changes into one its about her loving a person and she doesn't know he is a monster but at the end she is like him too. Very haunting
[newest]
My favorite song my Florence and The Machine. Florence's powerful voice and interesting lyrics.. amazing song!

12Breath of Life
Just close your eyes, imagine whatever this song suggests you... And boom!, beauty comes out from everywhere. Doesn't it feel like an Avatar world is surrounding you?
Truly powerful and amazing. It simply flows out and fits together perfectly. There is so much energy at certain parts and the vocals sound wonderful with a haunted kinda sound. The was mesmerized the first time I heard this song and it definitely is one of my most favorite songs from florence and the machine!
From Snow White and The Huntsman This is like her top and best performance yet, definitely deserves to become one of the top 5 at least!

13Heavy In Your Arms
Great lyrics, music, voice - everything! This song is really original and has special climate. Should be higher on this list!
Truly a powerful and engrossing song. I love the meaning behind it and the climax right in the middle. Both her voice and the lyrics are amazing. I listen to it everyday.
Very catchy and original. It gets me going Very powerful and its one of my favorite songs ever. Not at all like most songs. Beautiful
[newest]
Come on... Definitely among the top 10 songs!

14Only If for a Night
This deserves to be right under Shake It Out, Dog Days... , and Cosmetic Love. THIS NEEDS MORE VOTES
Beautiful song. How could this possibly be all tge way down here?! I first heard it pretty recently and I was blown away! It is indeed a very amazing song. It should be at least number 5.
I can't sleep for thinking of this song. Just amazing

15Over the Love
This song is purely epic. I'm pretty sure that there can be no other more epic song than this.
My favorite song from Florence ever
This is epic pure epic sound
This is her best vocal song
Those amazing high notes and the pain behind the song
I found myself in tears after listening for the first time
I think it's a beautiful song! And I simply love it.. The effect it produces when you listen to the howls and the desperate cries... Simply terrific and lovely!

16Between Two Lungs
I don't know why people even rank her songs? I love every single one of them its like "The Curse of Florence and The Machine" which entails loving every song she has ever sang but Between Tow Lungs is one of the first of her songs I heard and I love it because of that and the syncopation is, I think, one of the most amazing things she's done so far
This girl has lungs! She can belt liek a beast and then come back and become airy and beautiful. her music is so aw inspiring.

17Drumming Song
Inspiring, riveting, I love everything about this song and its irresistable beat. It gets stuck in my head so often, and I love more every time. Go Florence!
Amazing I just love this song so much! It's tough, passinate, full of energy but still so sweet, sexy and epic! Yess! Epic
Louder than sirens. Louder than bells. Sweeter than heaven and hotter than HELL! How can you beat those intense lyrics?!

18Addicted to Love
It simply leaves you be begging for more. Really underrated track, I absolutely think it should have made it onto the Standard Edition or at least the Deluxe Edition of the album rather than the "B-Sides, Covers and Rarities" disc from the 3rd or 4th re-release of Lungs. Simply an amazing cover, not only for Florence's voice, but the Machine's phenomenal instrumentation, especially Tom Monger on harp. I love when harp is incorporated into popular music, its unfortunately so rare in modern music. Best song off of Lungs, period.
What? It is top ten is is the best song
This song is definitely their best

19All This and Heaven Too
A nice and charming touch! A definite feel-good song by Florence Welch! I saw this song on this list and I had never heard it before, but now that I have, I absolutely love it! Highly recommend it to Florence listeners out there!
Very nice song, the melodies in there are incredible, its epic
Beautiful lyrics, I adore Florence, I just love her voice so much.

One of my favorite songs on the album! It's got a really beautiful, magical feel to it that never ceases to make me feel all gooey inside. Everything about it is amazing.

20Blinding
How can this not be in the top 10!? It's so beautifully hollow. I love listening to this song while watching the stars, makes me feel like I have all of them in my heart at the same time, almost bursting with energy! My favorite song of all time. When I die I'm going to be listening to this song while I'm slipping. Love you Florence.
This song is so beautiful and makes me realise that we all have our own imaginary world and spend a lot of time inside it. It shows that the happy world in our head, has it's dark and aggrovating secrets that are trying to stay hidden. Love it, love it, love it!
Beautiful song... Why does this song have so little votes? Its crazy! 0.8? Are they mad?
[newest]
Blinding has the best lyrics ever written in music. Florence's voice on the record is haunting ( in a good way), and the drums are awesome.

21Bedroom Hymns
I can't believe that this song is number 21. I thought it must be 4 or 5. The melody is absolutely amazing with drums and everything.

Just awesome, makes your heart races faster and faster.
Either they are great or you haven't heard this masterpiece

22Lover to Lover
Great song really pumps you up. I thought id be in the top 15 at least... Anyways awesome song.
Really? Should be top 5!
My personal #1! I'm really addicted to this masterpiece and it gives me goosebumps every time.

23Landscape
In my attempts to determine the song's meaning, it seems to be a generational curse from some great Grandmother who took her life with a gun to the mouth.

Am I getting it?
Upbeat, lyrics are meaningful and just a beautiful song. Definitely deserves to be higher!
This is really 100% most meaningful and beautiful song for F&M
Listen to sample

24I'm Not Calling You a Liar
I absolutely love this song. I am able to listen to this song over and over again without it getting old which happens to a lot f music that I listen to. I am surprised that it isn't higher, honestly give it a go it will only take 3 minutes of your time.
35? Really? This at least must be at top ten!
I'm not calling you a liar, just don't lie to me. Awesome song. So full of emotion too.

25Kiss With a Fist
Spunky beat and rhythm
Makes you want to dance!
If "Kiss with a Fist" is so far down this list then I am wondering what's waiting for me up there
Fell in love with this song since Jennifer's Body movie.

26Swimming
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! THIS THE BEST F&M SONG THERE IS.IT SHOULD DEFINITELY BE NUMBER ONE FOR IT IS THE GODDESS OF ALL F&M SONGS. SUCH A HYPNOTIC AND CATCHY SONG. YOU'D BE AN IDIOT NOT TO CHECK THIS SONG OUT. D:
This is my favorite song ever!
I just love this song, I love all FATM songs but this one is so beautiful, all of FATM's less famous songs like My boy builds coffins and Addicted to love need more attention.

27Heartlines
How is this last? It just thrums through you like an arrow. Amazing. Most people haven't heard of it I guess. Give it a try, it's great for dancing.
This is so sad nobody seems to remember this song and it is definitely one of their best!
Literally the best song by florence, hands down. The drums are awesome the vocals are awesome the song is awesome just... Awesome

28Breaking Down

29Girl With One Eye
18th!? What's wrong with you people!? This is a real MASTERPIECE! Ok I love Cosmic Love as well but this is by far THE BEST BLUES SONG I've ever heard! The LYRICS and Florence's voice are absolutely AMAZING!
Ok, this is like the best song ever why is it so down here?
God why? I CAN'T believe this masterpiece is all the way down here! This song gave me chills every time I listen to it
[newest]
So amazing and haunting... I can't even

30My Boy Builds Coffins
This is seriously my favorite song ever. It has the best metaphors about death I have ever heard, the boy literally representing death, and that death gets to everyone, rich or poor. Also, that once someone dies they are just thrown in the ground and loose all meaning to the world above.
Amazing lyrics and her voice only makes it that much more great!
It takes the best of all her songs and puts it into one. I don't understand how "Heavy in your arms" is higher than this. This, Blinding, Rabbit Heart, and Heartlines are the best.

31Hurricane Drunk
This song is incredibly... I don't know what. But the day I got it I listened to it about 20 times. Upon seeing this list, I assumed it would be in at least the top three. As far as the song, for those of you who NEED to hear it, the background is incredibly catchy, Florence's vocals are incredibly emotional and beautiful, and the lyrics are incredibly relatable but sad.
This is an amazing song! What the hell! No comments even really? Maybe it's not as well known as the others? Or maybe the meaning didn't make itself known to some.
How is this song so low? Please just give this a listen if you haven't already.
[newest]
My favourite right after Lover To Lover. Way too low in this ranking

32Hardest of Hearts
A beautiful and transcending song. The bridge really helps lead up to a lovely chorus, which is perhaps my favorite part of the song. It's has a very melancholy feel to it despite it's beat, like many of her songs. You can definitely feel her voice adding emotion to this wonderful song.
I absolutely love this song! It is so amazing and the lyrics are well written.
This is my absolute favorite F+TM songs ever. The beat is so strong and the power of her voice and just the whole melody line is so lovely yet catchy. It should get a higher place on here or at least more recognition by others. I really recommend this song. Very strong song.
Listen to sample

33Strangeness and Charm
Musically stimulating and lyrically brilliant. Flo talks about passion as a science experiment - only in the most beautiful way possible. You sense the urgency of her desire through the building pace of the song. The drum beat pulsates through your body and you really FEEL this song.
It is on the deluxe edition, but it could have been a single, it has the same atmosphere than No Light and its very catchy!
This is my favorite Florence song. Absolutely beautiful. It reminds me some of the great British postpunk music. The only reason this one is not higher must be that for some reason, it is only on the Deluxe edition of the album, so many have not heard it.

34Leave My Body
A beautiful song that showcases Florence's powerful voice and creativity, it is not as catchy as "Dog Days", but far better than "Falling".
I love all of their songs, but this is the one that truly speaks to me in particular. It really lifts me up like nothing else. It makes me feel happy and understood. It's so, so beautiful.
So lyrical! It is definitely among my top 10 F&M songs.

35Sweet Nothing
Awesome, This surely deserves number 1. Calvin Harris, you rule
Best song ever ā™„
Best ever song with calvin harris
Not on the top because its from calvin harris' album, I see
Superb lyrics, great tune, best singer today + best DJ = best song

36Bird Song
Are you kidding me? Bird Song has got to be one of the best. Florence alters between slow, haunting verses and fast, upbeat sections in a way never done before. Check this song out, it's truly one of a kind. The lyrics are dark and somewhat creepy. Kind of reminds me of Edgar Allan Poe's "A Tell-Tale Heart".
How is this not in the top ten? It's amazing!
Bird song is the best then Never Let Me Go and Girl with One Eye comes.
[newest]
One of my top five!
