Best The 1975 Songs

The Top Ten

1 Robbers

My favourite song, I always get so emotional listening to it. It's beautiful and I want a relationship like it. It's defiantly their best song and the video is amazing.

If you are a true fan of the 1975 and don't just like them for the "hype" then you should agree that this is their best song. The chilling guitar, the rawness of his voice and the climax around the bridge makes for a truly incredible song. I don't know how Matty can still sing this with so much emotion when they wrote it almost 10 years ago.

My favorite song since it really has a deeper meaning if you just put up yourself to the song's lyrics. This song is also sung with feelings which enhance its beauty. I can feel the pain of letting go. Well I've been longing for this kind of music and I don't care what other people say but I think that the 1975 is my jam. I'm grateful for their music.

Play this song in my funeral

2 Sex

Wanted to vote something that should be higher like Settle Down or Heart Out or Milk, but there's no denying Sex is their best song. Huge riff, Adam goes in on this one, and I just love it. Especially live - Sex is the closer now, and it's the one everyone goes mental for. Chants of "We want Sex! We want Sex! " were chorused through the audience.

This song just has that epic feeling that no other song can recreate. It's just an amazing rock out song that needs to be played in a huge stadium to do it's justice.

I think this song has captured what it feels like to be in love perfectly. It is my favourite song of all time and even though I've played it millions of times I still absolutely love it. - emoviie

Simply electrifying

3 Chocolate

I think this song made them popular because it's catchy and the voice of Matt really fits the song

I don't care if it's one of their most popular. It's up there for a reason, it's amazing. So catchy, well written, and that guitar lock is gorgeous.

I could never get sick of this song. You could sway to it and sing along for hours on end.

Never gonna quit

Why isn't this number 1 or 2? Chocolate or girls are the ones that need to be number 1!

Great song! Really catchy and the video is fun too, I love matt healy's voice in this song it's so interesting. very original and definitely my favourite song of theirs.

Something about this song gets me excited and makes me feel empowered!

This song got me into The 1975, been my favorite ever since!

5 Somebody Else

Though I can't decide on either robbers or somebody else, this is a really good song. I play this all the time. It just calms me down. I have really bad anxiety and this just helps, a lot. Even though you can't relate to the lyrics (like me), you'd still enjoy. I don't know, its just a very beautiful song.

This song is just so moving and beautiful, it is probably my all time favorite song by them, I can listen to this song like 5 times in a row, it's just so beautiful, it does somewhat get me in my feels though

This song is utterly incredible. The sounds and the lyrics come together to make the greatest song they have ever created. I have listened to this over and over on repeat, and it still amazes me with every listen.

I love this song, definitely my favorite by them next to The Sound. Those songs are amazing. They are just a great band. I've never heard great songs like those two...ones you can listen to over and over again!

6 The Sound

It's a new song, with a new sound, but it's just so catchy and the piano compliments Matty's voice. I love the new poppy sound, but hope that their old sounds stay with them.

Probably the most joyful, catchy and best song of 2016! I love it!

What a BOP. Just plain addictive. Groovy piano, sweet synths, and great vocals by Matty. Should be right up there!

It should be 1 or 2

7 You

This one is quite possibly my all time favorite by the 1975. "You" has catchy lyrics and fun beats, and is perfect for any mood. I have never been able to exactly point out why I am so in love with this song, and maybe that's why I love it so much.

Best song by far. Catchy and lyrically clever. This is a well-known song, but it doesn't always get the credit it deserves from fans.

Perfect song to listen to, while enjoying the beach!

What a banger

8 A Change of Heart

The more you listen to this song, the better it gets. It's such a different feel to the rest of the bands songs, but this song is so beautiful, witty and clever that it has quickly become my favourite off the new album. Simply a wonderful song lyrically and musically

Not only is this my favourite by them, but one of my favourite songs ever, incredible feel and vibe, so atmospheric, and I love the quirky, unorthodox lyrics.

I love how this song makes references to their other songs such as robbers and the city, it's really interesting that you can relate this song back. This song is so unique, I think it's one of their best.

I think the tune is perfect for a chill out moment. You basically can sit and listen to it all dayyy.

9 Me

Every time I listen to it I have to cry and because it is about guilt a lot of people (and me too) can relate to it. It's a very personal song that carries a lot of sadness. For me personally as a huge fan of The 1975 is it one of my favourite songs of them. Matty once said that it is his favourite song of the songs they have made so far too.

This isn't a song as much as it is a confession, and I think that's what makes it so incredibly moving. It's brave admitting your mistakes and your insecurities and even more difficult to make them not sound sappy or fake. This song does that so perfectly.

This song really messes me up. It's so beautifully and personally written and it's so real. There's no fancy metaphors or riffs or vocal tricks to disguise it: it is a raw and real song and it is so beautiful.

This song makes my heart ache. Every line feels so raw and real to the point of pure beauty.

10 The City

The lyrics are so wrong, but so right at the same time. Beautiful song. Definitely one of the best.

The simple and very random lyrics in this song just make it right. I think this is one of the best.

I really love this song it makes me feel young

I love this song.

The Contenders

11 Fallingforyou

The lyrics to this song are moving and emotional. Makes you want to sing out loud, and also cry at the same time. A very relatable song.

This is my favourite love song ever, I think everyone can relate to it because everyone fell in love at least once.

Fallingforyou is so bittersweet, it has beautiful lyrics that make you cry. But aren't they the best songs?

This song is blood brilliant! So easy to listen and Matts voice! Love it all

12 Heart Out

Why is this only number 8? It's my favourite song from the album.

I love this song, it should be number2

I love this song. I love this melody

Great vibes

13 Love Me

Very catchy. You'll find yourself humming along to it anytime of the day

I love how this makes fun of modern-day pop culture. And it's so catchy too

I get so hype to this song what it's one of my favorites for sure

This is the song that got me into the 1975 yay

14 Settle Down

I honestly think this should be number 1, or Robbers, or Me. Those 3 are by far their best, but I can't get Settle Down out of my head. Damn, it's so good.

After many listens to their self-titled album, "Settle Down" was one I came back to quite often, I became Addicted to this song, easily my favorite from "The 1975 (2013)"

I don't understand how this isn't in the top 3 let alone not in the top 5! This song honestly makes me feel an indescribable amount of happiness like nothing even compares to it!

It's been almost 5 years now, this song always with me. So meaningful for me

"You know I can't be found with you"

This song is so beautiful. The harmonies are on point and it's just really relaxing. I can picture a aesthetic in my head which fits the song perfectly. It's really easy and fun to sing and play on ukulele. I really love this track.

Such a beautiful song, it hits you. This should be up in the top 5! Love it so much emotion.

The lyrics to this always get to me, "i wanna see you but you're not mine"

Absolutely love this song, it's poetic and nice to listen to

It's just so awesome, don't why this is rated so lowly.

If you've ever been a drug addict, you will relate.

Listening to this work of art right now.

Such a great song!

17 Love It If We Made It

This is their best new song, way better the give yourself a try. It has vocals of sex and vibe of robbers. It's just beautiful!

18 I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It

I listen to this on repeat when doing homework because any other The 1975 song I just sing along but this one helps me focus :) amazing song by the way

19 Paris

An absolute favourite of mine. Has such beautiful and relaxing lyrics that make me day dream as I sing along to it every time. This is a true masterpiece of a song that is totally UNDERRATED and deserves much more attention - Should be in at least the top 10 if not 5!

It's so relaxing and beautiful, truly a masterpiece

Underrated. One of their best art works, GREAT lyrics that tells a story.

Absolutely amazing and moving. On level with Somebody Else. Lyrics are different and unrepetitive, and I find myself calmer and more pensive after listening.

20 If I Believe You

Everything about this song is so perfect. The vocals provoke so much emotion and the lyrics, you can tell aren't marketed towards anyone. It's truly the type of music they want to make you can just hear the passion put into this song

The emotion in this when performed live is insanely beautiful. It reminds me why I fell in love with this band in the first place. You can really see Matty's take on religion and why it mans so much to him.

When I first heard this song I was almost to tears LOL it's so good. Hearing it live is another story!

Gave me goose-bumps from the first note. Beautiful, eerily haunting and simply stunning.

"LOOK, a dog won't bark if you don't lark about." gets me every time because of how random the metaphor is.

Should be higher up

Should be number 1

22 Loving Someone

A song that stands out above other The 1975 songs, even ones like Chocolate, The Sound and Sex. It is a beautiful song that I find myself singing all the time. I would say it's at the same level as Pompeii or On Hold (Two of my all-time favourite songs). It deserves so much more credit and recognition. Really, it makes me feel calm and right in myself.

Although this track is less than a week old as of now, it has quickly become one of my favorite songs. The lyrics are so true and special. Loving Someone is a perfect example of what music should be like.

The lyrics are amazing

This song is amazing, it should be on the top ten

23 Pressure

This song calms me down and makes me smile.

This is such a good and underrated song

The best Song of The 1975

24 She Way Out

I don't know why everyone says this is so repetitive and 'not as good as the others on the album'. It makes me happy every time I hear it.

This should definitely be in the top ten!

This is my personal favourite. Just so catchy and fun!

It just great writing and the way matty 'intrumentalises' his voice in the 2nd verse

25 Be My Mistake

Utterly beautiful. - arpanvinayakmax

26 Menswear

Has an intro which is too long but when Matt comes in it is just amazing. Definitely needed a longer full length song as it's too good. This and Sex are the best!

So simple, yet I am so compelled to dance each time I listen to 'Menswear.'

I know this song like the back of my hand and it still isn't old, and still gives me goosebumps (like Me, Loving Someone, Paris and Pressure do).

This should be way further up, it's one of the best.

27 She's American

My favourite off the new album. It has that throwback to the old sound that I miss. - Tristan1975R5

This song is really catchy and lyrics are great. Must be in top 10.

I instantly fell in love when I first heard it!

Top 10

28 An Encounter
29 Is There Somebody Who Can Watch You?

DESErves to be in the top 10! So full of emotion and pain

30 Antichrist

How is this not even in this list! (Besides its name which is sort of offending to some people ) this song deserves to be in the top 5 let alone not even in the list! This is one of the best unknown and underrated the 1975 song ever, give it a listen, I swear it's so bloody good,

Antichrist is hands down one of the best songs I have ever heard. From the lyrics, to the vocals, to the instrumental, it is all amazing. I feel like this song is way too underrated and should have been much higher on the list

Healy's voice and instrumentals makes Antichrist one of the best The 1975 songs from their whole Discography.

Srlsy this should be top 1

31 Medicine

Medicine is just one of those songs where it makes you feel so many different things depending on when you listen to it. It is very calming and soft, but still very much the 1975.

Whenever I'm feeling really out of it and I need to think, I play this song and it helps every single time. So calming, and it really gets to my emotions.

Gorgeous song. The kind you listen to when you lie in bed and just stare at the ceiling.

Sleepless nights and this song has always accompained me each day

32 So Far (It's Alright)

Such an underrated song but my favorite by far! The piano, the lyrics, Matty's voice, it's all perfection. Should be higher on the list for sure!

Amazing and underrated

Again, very underrated

My favourite

33 Milk

Definitely their most underrated song and a hidden gem with a riff as good as Sex if not better!

I always hate how people forget about this because it's a 'hidden track'.

This has the most guitar and I feel nostalgic when I listen because it reminds me of Bisleep and Drive Like I Do...PLEASE WE MUST BEG FOR A RELEASE OF ALL OF THEIR OLD SONGS

so good

34 It's Not Living (If It's Not with You)

Great song. - arpanvinayakmax

35 This Must Be My Dream

Why this song isn't a single yet baffles me. I mean I LOVE Somebody else but it wasn't really the best idea for a single while this song fits the mold perfectly

Whenever I put this song on I feel alive. I don't know how to explain it well because there's too much to say but this is what the feeling I want to feel for the rest of my life sounds like it's such an underappreciated song and I really think that more people need to hear it. easily my favorite song by the 1975

Undoubtedly the best song of the new album, literally puts me in the best mood ever

So underrated. this song is amazing

36 She Lays Down

So beautiful and deep

This song is just so emotional and the fact that it's just his guitar and voice oh my lord, it's truely beautiful

This song...It's so incredibly sad and beautiful. Definitely should be higher on this list. One of my favourites of theirs.

perfect - pjo

37 Nana

I cry when I hear this song. Especially the last line. Definitely one of the best from the album.

Nana is so beautiful with heartbreaking yet sweet lyrics and a great melody.


Another casualty of the tumblr stans. if you're looking for a testament to matty's songwriting and storytelling abilities, here you go

38 Facedown
39 Head. Cars. Bending

The perfect song for when you're driving through a tunnel in the middle of the night with your friends of lover

Just a brilliantly done song. Listen to a it a few times and it will stick in your mind.

I love this song, it's perfect for midnight car drives

love it

This song is so awesome it makes 2.5 minutes feel like 90 seconds

What? #44? this song is so good!

This is one of those songs that screams 'alternative' but makes you feel so many things all at once that you wish it was longer

43 Woman

Number 31? Women is One of the best!

A lot of people skip this song. but it is so beautiful

One of the best opening tracks to an album, it just sets the mood for the entire album.

45 Haunt // Bed

How is this song 24?

46 Heads. Cars. Bending

This song has so much emotion. The beat is amazing and when I first heard it, I felt nostalgic. When the line "If you're alone in your room" and the background vocals play, it's a feeling of joy and euphoria for me.

47 Lostmyhead

Very intense song that has such a calming atmosphere. This one has to be their best, still gutted they didn't play it at my concert. Always in the mood for this one.

This reminds me a lot of HNSCC

Even though this is an instrumental, it deserves better than 30. It brings about a huge, overwhelming feeling for me and it feels so good when listening to it.
