Best Lorde Songs

The Top TenXW

1Team

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!

I heard this song at work the other day and fell in love with it. Her voice, the lyrics.. Just everything is beautiful! By far number 1

Love this song

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

The best song ever by lorde

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!

This song is so cool. Mysterious and grows in intensity, then at the chorus she just lets it out!

One of the best songs I've heard in awhile.

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!

I love Royals, but it's by far her weakest song. Besides the pitch shifting on the chorus, this is perfect, though disappointing. I heard people call this her best song. Eh, I prefer Team and Yellow Flicker Beat. - WonkeyDude98

I personally think this song is better than Royals. Her style is completely different than others. Love you Lorde!

5Ribs

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?

I love this song so much! It gives me chills - toptenqueen

6Buzzcut Season

Wonderful! The more you listen to it, the more you build up your own thought about the meaning of this song. Love it. - Recenation

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

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

Best song by Lorde in my opinion.

7Bravado

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.

I love this song so much. It has the darkness of Team or Yellow Flicker Beat, but also the carefree I don't care of Royals. I never listened to this song till today believe it or not, and now I can't get it outta my head.

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. - EmperorAguila

Literally don't understand why her other songs aren't as popular, they are so much better! They deserve more appreciation!

Glory and gore is such an amazing song and the meaning behind it is beautiful

Fourth favorite

9Everybody 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!

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. - xcToxicana

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!

Her voice is so good in this song. It is just mesmerizing.

10400 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!

This is so hard! I love Lorde, she's one of my favourite singers, and I think the whole Pure Heroine is genius and amazing. Every song of hers is brilliant, but 400 Lux, Ribs and A World Alone arethe ones I'm completely obsessed with. But if I had to choose one, it would be 400 Lux for sure. It's so simple, yet fun and entertaining and you can listen to it whatever mood you're in. It's amazing!

Only #10? Come on... It's got a hip hop style beat, and I get chills when lorde sings "you pick me up and take me home again" lol. Should be Number 1

11The Love Club

How it all started! Listen if you loved Royals.

I love the meaning and her voice in this song

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. - ToptenPizza

I agree totally! I'd rather be kinda poor with my family and friends and the truth than isolated and lost but super rich

This is one of her most underrated songs I think. Royals beats this easily

This song is just incredible. Her songwriting ability is displayed best on this song

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! - moonwolf

This song is so good how can it not be higher than bravado? Come on

Sorta reminds me of A Place in This World

15No Better

Someone in my English class said I was losing my mind to be listening to Lorde. He lost his head

16Magnets

I don't really know how one picks just one song of Lorde because they all are just hilarious so I'm choosing the last one that caught me.

I never really thought bout it, to be honest. It's a good song. I guess pretty girls don't know the things that I know...

The first time I heard this song it struck me. This should be in the top ten at least

I don't know this song.

17Ladder Song

A great rendition of Bright Eyes "Ladder Song". The cover is done beautifully.

18Swingin Party

One of the most soothingly dreamy songs I have ever heard. Perfect to listen to by yourself at nighttime by a pool.

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

19Flicker
20Still Sane

This song means a lot! So sad people can not see it. I just voted for it as the best Lorde song. I would really like to know that this hasn't been recognized because of people's knowledge instead of because of it being bad.

I always skipped this song because I disliked. A lot. However after listening to it more, it has become my FAVORITE out of all of the other songs. Such a good tune, worth listening too.

I disliked this song the first few times I listened to it.
But, like 400 Lux, with more listens and good headphones the song grew on me tremendously.
I can't pick my favorite Lorde song but this is definitely deserves more credit.
