The Top Ten

We live in cities you'll never see on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things
Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams
And you know, we're on each other's team
Come on people we are one percent away from Team being #1 over Royals! We gotta do this! Royals isn't that good of a song... especially no as good as Team! JUst the lyrics are great!
Definitely best song of Lorde.
[Newest]That bass line though...

This is the best song... juts love this song
I think this is too overplayed and overrated. I love this song. But there are more songs of Lorde that's a lot better than this. They need more appreciation.
I think that that song and team are the best
[Newest]This song has a cool beat

3Yellow Flicker Beat
I have been listening to this song since last 4hrs! It's so awesome! This is about the Rise of Katniss In Mockingjay! The fire, is what this is all about! Excellency at par! Simply the best! Loved it the most!
One of the best songs I've heard in awhile.
This song is so cool. Mysterious and grows in intensity, then at the chorus she just lets it out!
[Newest]This should be 1st. Best ever!

4Tennis Court
This is my favourite song! This song created my personal dark style! The Yeahs, when I listen this song, make me stronger all time! And The song' s video can destroy all your problems in your head in that moment
I think Royals is great... But overhyped, so I prefer the genius Tennis Court because I can relate to the lyrics (Don't you think that it's boring how people talk? ) and I love the beat and the yeahs. You're amazing, Lorde!
As much as I like Royals and Team I really like the Tennis Court, its genius and not overplayed. Lorde Forever!

Ribs used to be the only song from Pure Heroine I NEVER listened to, and I can't tell how often I listened to this album with skipping Ribs. But now, as I finally discovered the song, I'm obsessed with it, it's a brillantly written song, lyrically and generally - the feelings and the story it transports is incredible and relatable. I want to laugh till my ribs get tough with the only friend I need, as well.
This song is so good. It's so deep. I love her lyrics and her melody and her background singing. There is literally nothing wrong with this song, its truly a masterpiece and way underrated.
Can we just realize how awesome and intense this song is?

6Buzzcut Season
This shows how terrible society is. It is also about war, it's buzzcut season because the guy is going to war.


It's a beautiful song and it tells how bad society has become


So addicting and not overplayed.

This song isn't an uplifting one like a simple-minded person would take it as at first glance, and that's what makes the song so beautiful and relatable, especially to me personally. It's a reflecting song, one that encourages one struggling with narcissism not to heal, but to- instead of wonder what's wrong with you when the spotlight's off of you and you feel lonely and self-reflective- find something you can constantly be good at and feel approval from others through that vessel.
Honestly bravado, and biting down are my faves of hers right now. I adore her, really
I love how this song is all about gaining confidence. It's like a great pep talk!

8Glory and Gore
How is Glory and Gore not #1? I am a huge Lorde fan, and Glory and Gore is definitely her best song. It has dope beats, and it is as catchy as heck.


Literally don't understand why her other songs aren't as popular, they are so much better! They deserve more appreciation!
How is this not number 1? I admut, tennis court and team is awesome, but seriously? Compared to those songs, this is like its made by a cold blooded killer with all the emotions and the beat!
[Newest]This song should be #1. It's catchy and the lyrics are brilliant.

9400 Lux
This song is so beautiful in the sense that the lyrics are genius. This deserves to be number 1. I love Lorde, but I have to admit I'm not a fan of Yellow Flicker Beat. It depicts her everyday life in a suburban town with no airs or graces but Lorde just makes it sound like it is Utopia. This

"Now wear long sleeves,
And the heating comes on.
We're getting good at this.
Dreams of clean teeth,
I can tell that you're tired
But you keep the car on
While you're waiting out front..."

Optimistically neutral, yet vaguely melancholic. Poetry at its finest.
I Love 400 Lux. I love songs that are really different and this song is. I listen to it all the time. Love Her!
I think that this song is even better than team. Right?

10The Love Club
I love the meaning and her voice in this song
This and royals... Love her!


Best song hands down.

The Contenders

11Everybody Wants to Rule the World
Oh gosh! Never knew that is her song. Listen it half a year in Assassin's Creed trailer. Highly underrated song, I supposed that it would be on first five. You are genius Lorde.. Love you!
When I heard this on Assassin's Creed Unity trailer I just fell in love with the song. Her cover is 10 times better than the original. Her voice is so perfect.
Very good song, actually this is the 2nd favorite across from Yellow Flicker Beat, yet this one is really good, in my opinion better than Royals.


[Newest]I saw this on a video called "gravity falls no turning back" and I had no idea what the song was called. Now that I do, I can't stop listening to it!

12White Teeth Teens
Yes, it is about popularity and the rich people and why they suck. Rich people suck, and it is said in this song, it's better not to be a fake person, but a real person.


This is one of her most underrated songs I think. Royals beats this easily
It is so placid and such a relaxing song perfect to listen to any day

13Million Dollar Bills

14A World Alone
I don't know how this song isn't #1! I think her talent really shows in this song especially!
Love this song, 400 lux, LOVE CLUB, and team, all totes deserve to be on this list!


This song is so good how can it not be higher than bravado? Come on
[Newest]Wish I could've voted for this too.

15No Better

16Swingin Party
This is a really relaxing song! Why is it so low?!? It should be much higher.

17Ladder Song

18Biting Down
This is such a hypnotising and amazing song. It should definitely be much higher! I love this song so much

19Still Sane
