Top Ten Halsey Songs

The Top TenXW


Lyrically, this is amazing. The chorus also reminds me of "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons. There's also a line where she says "do you call yourself a f****** hurricane like me" and a snippet of her song 'Hurricane' plays, she's a genius. Oh, and the way she swears

I really love this song because it has good lyrics. I've been a fan of Halsey since Badlands came out. This is one of my favorites off of Badlands.

Gasoline is such a great song, with a great meaning to go along with it. The lyrics actually make you think, the beat is fantastic, and I love everything about this song.

You can feel Halsey's emotions in this song. The melody, her voice, the lyrics, this song is a masterpiece.

A masterpiece. Halsey's voice isn't too powerful, too high, or too low. It's at the perfect pitch and tone to be sung. The lyrics are something special describing the colors of a relationship, where one is red, blue, grey and purple each representing a different part of the romance. The beat accompanies all of this really well to create a well crafted story. Beyond pop perfection. 7/5 - ProPanda

"You're only happy when your sorry head is filled with dope, I hope you make it to the day you're 28 years old"

Also the bridge
"You were red and you liked me, 'cause I was blue. And then you touched me and suddenly I was a lilac sky and you decided purple wasn't for you"

I'm red and I liked this song because it was blue. Then I listened to it and it suddenly became a lilac sky and I decided that purple was that perfect color I was looking for.

I've been looking for THAT ONE SONG ever since I was little... and this is it! A masterpiece.

3Roman Holiday

I love absolutely everything about Roman Holiday. The first few lines just captivate me, then the chorus is so powerful and the lyrics is just perfect. The beat of this song is also wonderful, and the way she is so specific about all that happened that night is amazing. This song is the best song she has ever written and I think it should be her most popular one.

Roman Holiday, Gasoline, and Hold Me Down are definitely my favorites. They all make my ears swoon and my mind think.

I simply cannot stop listening to this song it's so nostalgic and the music and beat are so beautiful and powerful... I'm captivated

This song is so underrated. I can't stop listening to it, especially the beginning. - TheAlbinoWolf

This is one of the best songs I've ever heard. The music is interesting, the lyrics fit well together, and it really fits her voice. It's so different from anything I've ever heard, yet so amazing.

The instrumental sounds great and with her voice it sounds amazing! The lyrics are very powerful and I absolutely love this song!

Should be #1. The first time I heard this song is when Halsey performed as an opening act to Imagine Dragons. This song reminded me of something Lorde would write. I love Lorde! This song is truly amazing.

Her breakout single: lyrics, vocals, etc. - everything is on point

Love the two music videos kind of showing her bisexuality. And I love how people reacted to the second video even though she does exact same thing just with a female.

This song should be number 1, legit the best!

8Is There Somewhere

A simply beautiful song. It will take you to another place is you just close your eyes and listen. The drop at the end is as close you can get to musical heaven. It really shows Halsey's talent, as she wrote and produced the song alone.

I love this song, it's a lot more lyrically unique than most of badlands, it feels expertly made and halsey's voice is perfect in it, 10/10

Easily my favorite Halsey song. Nothing else compares. It's raw, emotional, poetic, and overall beautiful. Brilliantly done.

This is my all time favorite Halsey song and will probably remain so for a while.

Would it really kill you if we kissed

"Your laugh echoes down the highway, carves into my hollow chest, spreads over the emptiness, it's bliss."!

Beautiful song. Especially the second chorus where she sings with the guy.

The last chorus and the lyrics are wonderful

The Contenders


A song that tells the story of a young woman who doesn't "belong to no city, belong to no man". Such an empowering feminist song.

WHAT! This song shouldn't be in this place

Why is this song in this place? it's amazing, it's just... my body, my heart and my soul are touched by this song. "I'm wanderess I'm a one night stand don't belong to no city don't belong to no man, I'm the violence in the pouring rain, I'm a hurricane"
