Best Florence and the Machine Songs

All of the Florence and the machine songs are great and amazing!

The Top TenXW

1Shake 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

Great, excellent, awesome, superb, magnificent, out of this world; there are no words to describe how beautiful it, truly a piece of art. My favourite song out of her new album for sure!

One of my most favorite songs ever!

2Dog 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!

nice catchy melody with good beats - Shynash21

Every Florence and the machine song is my favourite I love all their songs but this one is the only one I don't like and when I say don't like I mean hate

3Cosmic 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!

Absolutely breathtaking song... Has helped me so much.

4Never Let Me Go

By far Florence best song! Can't believe it isn't 1 or 2!

Ethereal. Every time I hear this song, I know there's something bigger than life as we know it. You gotta give this song more credit.

Magical. This song is by far one of the best songs I have ever heard. Enchanting and haunting, its perfect in every way. It's euphoric, even. This should be higher on this list, and on the charts. I wish this song had more recognition and Florence + The Machine as well.

Perhaps the most beautiful song I've ever heard. It's just magical.

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

This is definitely one of the best songs by her. It's so powerful and every time she goes "I hunt for you with bloody feet across the hallow ground" I get chills (especially at the end). It's just so well done and such a good narrative.

6Rabbit 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!

This song has so much meaning to me. It gives me chills every time I listen to it.

7No Light, No Light

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.

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.

Beautiful song and You just don't get bored of it, it's catchy and the lyrics hit you

This is my favorite for so many reasons. What a brilliant band. This song moves the light.

8What 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!

I have to vote for just 1!

9You'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

10Between 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

In my opinion the best

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.

The Contenders

11Breath 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!

I truly don't understand how this isn't number one! This song is amazing and powerful and it has such a lovely sound. The minute I hear her vocals with the heavy drums and all the backings I get goosebumps! Honestly this songs sounds like she's on her way to tear down someones castle (besides seven devils of course) and it really should be further up top

Deserves to be first, I have no idea why its all the way down here

12Seven 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... !

A very enchanting song

13Bedroom 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

Should be number 1; it's definitely their best song. Very unique style - amcskillet

This should be at least in the top 5.

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.

Good song but, say my name? LOL.

15Heavy 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

Come on... Definitely among the top 10 songs!

16Over the Love

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

This song is purely epic. I'm pretty sure that there can be no other more epic song than this.

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!

Absolutely amazing and melodious with great vocals and classic beat! One of the songs from the classic movie "The Great Gatsby"! The best song ever!

17I'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.

18Only If for a Night

Though perhaps not quite as anthemic as "Shake It Out," this song possesses an inimitably etherial, almost surreal quality that all but transcends everything else she's yet accomplished. There are so many punctuating moments in the song, borne largely of its pacing and unique musical arrangement, that stir a certain shifting of gear-shifting sensation within the listener; she draws you into her quietly lugubrious twilight dreamland in the first few moments of the song, when suddenly the colors of that melancholy painting slam through the glass and envelop you the moment those gossamer harp notes give way to the driving thump of the percussive beat. Her vocals seamlessly travel between the eponymous choral pronouncement, emotional, yet perfectly restrained caterwauling, and a low quivering bleat. To bear witness to this tune's lyrical/musical transitions, marked invariably by the reiteration of the song's title line, is to expelled through a pinhole in an interdimensional wall; the ...more

This deserves to be right under Shake It Out, Dog Days... , and Cosmetic Love. THIS NEEDS MORE VOTES

I can't sleep for thinking of this song. Just amazing

It's the best song I think of hers.

19Addicted 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

Adore this cover!

20Drumming 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!

WHAT?! How can anything top... Louder than sirens louder than bells sweeter than heaven and hotter than HELL

Louder than sirens. Louder than bells. Sweeter than heaven and hotter than HELL! How can you beat those intense lyrics?!
