Best Collective Soul Songs

The Top Ten

1 Shine

Shine is an amazing song! it is post-grunge and alternative at its best! the world I know would be my second vote, that is also an amazing song but this one just beats it! - dragon13304

This is the most out of order list I have seen yet. Mostly because Shine is not number one, but holy moly. Where is December? The World I Know? Run? Yes I see them, but why are they where they are?

Shine is one the best songs ever made... This is Collective Soul at its best.

Impeccable

2 Heavy

It's got to be HEAVY! This one sticks in your gut. Great drum beat, great heavy guitar sound, catchy little riff and lets the chords ring, the vocals are sung in an understated mood - not screamed, great bridge before the solo, the solo is manic and it's all under 3 minutes. Years ago producers would insist that all songs be under 3 minutes.

This song is why god gave me ears. If I could only take 10 songs with me to a deserted island, this would be HIGH on that list.

I just cannot stop listening yo this song; It is so addicting. There are multiple stages of the song with each being equally brilliant.

LOVE THE SOLO, LOVE THE RIFFS

3 December

Great really catchy song. Really deep and artistic. I can't understand it but it is really cool. The beet is sweet

I'd have to flip a coin between December and Shine. Both equally capture the soul

I'm a real stickler as far as music goes, but this is considerably the best song I have ever heard.

This is the first 90’s song I was introduced to and actually enjoyed. THIS GOLDEN SONG IS WHAT MADE ME INTO ROCK. Seen em’ live and THEY’RE GREAT. NOT ONLY FOR THIS SONG THOUGH. The second time, they opened with “Simple” and blew me away. I also liked with “Listen” “Contaigous” “Heavy” And “Run”. Wait a minute, why is “Simple” not high up on this list? That song was also great.

4 The World I Know

The world I know is totally the best and Number one song of Collective Soul for me.. I agree that Shine was the Breakthrough and all, but speaking of class and quality, according to how talented Ed is, this has been his first best written, composed, performed throughout this whole time... Almost every song is great Great! But this one, just beats all O them...

Absolutely Ed's best work of art! Soothing vocals and great message of the circle of life! Viewing the video is a MUST! AWESOME!

This is the best song for me.. So Sentimental.

Shine was my favorite for a long time, then I ran across this - and just WOW.
I'd have to go This, then Shine, then December for my top 3.

6 Where the River Flows

This song is great but it should be higher on the list

I hope this song @ higher place

Great heavy riff, this is tied with heavy but I vote for this since its lower on the ol list

7 Run

Run should Be top 3... The fact that it isn't even listed on here really slams this website's credibility.

Best Song by Collective Soul by far. Run deserves a higher spot on this chart. The lyrics are so soulful. How does this so not make it to the top three.

Awesome song. I love this whole album. I really think that this is one of the better songs on it though!
The beat... The lyrics.. Come on people.

Yeah... should be higher

9 Energy

Really don't understand why this song is not in the top 5. This one is my favorite with Gel and where the river flows. Come on people shine is so overrated.

Come on, come on...love the sexy eastern Europe sound of this woman. Come on...

10 Fuzzy

This song needs to move up the list for sure a wonderful tune

Deserves its place as it is such a catchy and different track. Quite brilliant.

11 Better Now

This song is extremely energetic and GREAT live! I've seen these guys TWICE and Ed Puts Extreme effort into it. And I'd have to say the guitar solo at the end (live) was pretty crazy

My favourite CS song of all!

13 Georgia Girl

14 Listen

Wrong "Listen" song you speak of Beyonce singing.

Beyonce is one of the best singer ever... She sang this song with a lot of emotions. THIS SONG IS MADE FOR EVERY UPCOMING SINGER.. DOESN'T MATTER MALE OR FEMALE... EVERY UPCOMING ARTIST SHOULD SING IT ONCE IN LIFE

15 Smashing Young Man
16 No More, No less

I was shocked to come on this page and not even see this song on the list. Come on people this song is incredible

Really good song should be at least #11

18 Precious Declaration

Wow. I am sad this is so low. This is such an inspiring song, but then again the band does have many great songs.

Definitely my favorite Collective Soul song. Should be much higher.

Possibly the best song of an underrated album.

This song helped me through some hard times. So epic! Thank you C.S.!

19 Tremble for My Beloved

This makes me wanna jump out of my seat and start jerking my body to the beats

20 Vent
21 Counting the Days

Rock Something Else. You can call it Roll if you want, but there is definitely some real Rock in here.

22 Burn
23 Hollywood

Needs to be higher, all ages groups like this one

24 Forgiveness

Amazon song

Why (Pt. 3) is this rated so low? Probably one of the better written songs by them and an all around good feel and great music. Love the bridges. This puts the "soul" in collective soul. It used to be all I'd want to learn, was what good music was. Now all I really want to learn is forgiveness for y'all who didn't vote for this song. 😂

25 Needs

I can't believe Needs is not on the list! Definitely, in the top 5

27 Bleed

Why is this so low?

28 All

This song deserves a higher spot... One of the best love songs around.. If you ever fall in love.. Listen this.. You wont be disappointed... Great Vocals, great Guitars.. Great lyrics... Great simplicity...

So many great songs but this one gets me all the time

29 Staring Down
30 Youth

One of the early ones that never got much respect in my opinion. It is a contender I think.

31 She Said

A great song with very beautiful yet sad lyrics.
