The best songs from one of the greatest musicians of all time, Elliott Smith.

The Top Ten

1 Between the Bars

It hard to choose but it wins

Not only does this song stuck itself inside your head for hours, the meaning and symbolism present is unbelievable. The way he sings, the feel of the words, the flow of his voice, the whole song is perfection.

The most beautiful song in the world. I cried the first time I heard this masterpiece. His voice is just... perfect in this song.

Hauntingly beautiful. Words just fail to express when it comes to his masterpieces. I love you, Elliott...

Best Elliott Smith's song!

5 Miss Misery

Because it was the first song I heard of this brilliant artist. Though I put Waltz together.

This song is very lyrically interesting, with muted barritone guitars and haunting synthesisers which really lay out a memorable atmosphere of melancholy and despair.
