Best Florence and the Machine Songs

All of the Florence and the machine songs are great and amazing!

The Top Ten

1 Shake It Out

Awesome! Such powerful vocal. Florence is amazing and this is some of her best work! The lyrics are so intriguing. Great work Florence!

This song is simply amazing! The strong vocals and sound is mind-blowing! What I love most is the meaning of this song. About rebirth and starting over again with acceptance and determination

Great, excellent, awesome, superb, magnificent, out of this world; there are no words to describe how beautiful it, truly a piece of art. My favourite song out of her new album for sure!

Very powerful, so catchy and all in all hauntingly beautiful Florence is so poetic with this song I love it!

2 Never Let Me Go

By far Florence best song! Can't believe it isn't 1 or 2!

Ethereal. Every time I hear this song, I know there's something bigger than life as we know it. You gotta give this song more credit.

Magical. This song is by far one of the best songs I have ever heard. Enchanting and haunting, its perfect in every way. It's euphoric, even. This should be higher on this list, and on the charts. I wish this song had more recognition and Florence + The Machine as well.

Too good to be true

3 Cosmic Love

I absolutely love this song! Heard a few seconds of it on the trailer for Water for Elephants and I couldn't get it out of my head! In just about a week I've listened to it more than 800 times

Amazing song, I have listened to it at least 50 times in the last week. It makes a very good dance song and you can dance to it forever without feeling like it's getting old. I dance the same style choreography as florence is in the video, and it makes for a very intense workout~ love love love this song!

Every time the drums begin, I can feel my heart racing!

I love this song! Such gorgeous vocals and backround music!

4 Dog Days are Over

Love Cosmic Love, but Dog Days are Over is so much better. It is just amazing, her voice in the song is beautiful and the instrumentals, it is catchy with good lyrics and an all round amazing song. Definitely deserves to be number 1!

Every time I hear this song it touches me right inside my soul. I forget all my problems and I just feel so good. Just love it!

nice catchy melody with good beats - Shynash21

What turned me on to Florence + The Music. Absolutely AMAZING vocals. One of those rare singers who sings at full force -- much like Grace Slick. Just a powerhouse.

5 What the Water Gave Me

Transcendently epic. A powerhouse of a song, and completely magnificent.

The harps, guitars and gospel choir are all typical of Florence and are part of its brilliance.

A majestic song!

Really a nice song, I love it so much. Florence really puts her heart into this and it obviously shows. I would have to say that this song should be higher up

This song is so inspiring and I personally think it uses great power and she really puts her heart into it. This song is very good and it's very catchy.
In my opinion, it should be number 1!

A pure masterpiece! Their best by far!

6 No Light, No Light

Wow. Just wow. This is such an amazingly beautiful song. The second time I heard the song I couldn't help but obsess with it! "No light, no light! In your bright blue eyes. I never knew daylight could be so violent" Just amazingly beautiful. Congragulations Florence and the machine on a superb song.

Catchy... powerful and thumpking... No Light No Light creates an aura of dark, moody, magic. It is as engrossing as any song she has made.

Beautiful song and You just don't get bored of it, it's catchy and the lyrics hit you

Great song. Magical and dark. I discovered it thanks to my sister who is a massive fan of Florence and the Machine and used to have it on her answer phone machine.

7 Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)

7th? I'm sorry but this song deserves to be up there, the beautiful harp, her amazing, haunting voice, the heartfelt lyrics make it one of my favourite songs ever

The instrumentals and her amazing voice, plus the meaning of the song, make it an epic song... Like all her songs. This is the best though, because no matter how much I listen to Flo or this song and no matter what I go through, this song always is a pleasure to listen to a million times.

Simply and amazing song with fantastic harps and choirs. Florence is just awesome! Nothing conpares to her amazing voice and talent! Her new album is the best ever too!

Such a fun yet haunting song

8 Howl

I love how much dreaming you can do. I have made stories to this and all florence songs make you believe and have hope and cry mostly. I am 11. And this already inspires me.

Love this song. I accidentally downloaded the song by mistake, but when I listened to it I absolutely loved it! One of the best songs of Florence and The Machine, but Cosmic Love stays my ultimate fave! Xoxo

I love this song its not just about a werewolf is her love and she changes into one its about her loving a person and she doesn't know he is a monster but at the end she is like him too. Very haunting

Its like I am in a drew when I hear this song I get so filled with ideas when I is playing and I think its such a majestic song I should be higher up

9 You've Got the Love

This is possibly here most well known song, and although some might argue it is not her best, so many people, including myself were introduced to the great Florence through this song! It may not be number 1, but it definitely deserves to be in the top 10

This is the first song that introduced me to her music and I have to say after listening to most of her songs I still see this one as the best. You can feel the emotion she pored into this song. Although most people may not realize it

Awesome how can you not like this song it is possibly the most famous song here so if it is so famous then why is it number 10

The best song of hers by far! The notes she hits on point and the lyrics are all so beautiful.

10 Spectrum

Excellent song with heavier arena rock and lyrics. It sounds kind of unusual for an f+tm song, but it perfectly fits them in the end, expressing a more powerful and shivering aspect of Florence, and satisfying those that wanted something less light than their previous songs. Actually, everybody goes on saying that shake it out, cosmic love, you've got the love, dog days are over are their best but I never really liked any of them. I think the three real f+tm masterpieces are spectrum, rabbit heart and what the water gave me. Anyway, keep up the splendid job Flo and you guys!

Such a beautiful song! The music, the voice, the rhythm are just awesome. Its one of my favorite songs. I think its one of florence´┐Ż's most powerful songs.

The chorus of this song literally sends chills down my spine every time I hear it. It's an incredible song that expanded my musical horizons. There aren't many things on earth as strong and beautiful as florence's voice in this song in my opinion.

So so good.

? Girl with One Eye

18th!? What's wrong with you people!? This is a real MASTERPIECE! Ok I love Cosmic Love as well but this is by far THE BEST BLUES SONG I've ever heard! The LYRICS and Florence's voice are absolutely AMAZING!

Ok, this is like the best song ever why is it so down here?

God why? I CAN'T believe this masterpiece is all the way down here! This song gave me chills every time I listen to it

Absolutely amazing, I cannot believe it is at #37! At least deserves #12, definitely one of my favorites!

? Hurricane Drunk

This song is incredibly... I don't know what. But the day I got it I listened to it about 20 times. Upon seeing this list, I assumed it would be in at least the top three. As far as the song, for those of you who NEED to hear it, the background is incredibly catchy, Florence's vocals are incredibly emotional and beautiful, and the lyrics are incredibly relatable but sad.

This is an amazing song! What the hell! No comments even really? Maybe it's not as well known as the others? Or maybe the meaning didn't make itself known to some.

How is this song so low? Please just give this a listen if you haven't already.

My favourite right after Lover To Lover. Way too low in this ranking

The Contenders

11 Between Two Lungs

I don't know why people even rank her songs? I love every single one of them its like "The Curse of Florence and The Machine" which entails loving every song she has ever sang but Between Tow Lungs is one of the first of her songs I heard and I love it because of that and the syncopation is, I think, one of the most amazing things she's done so far

This girl has lungs! She can belt liek a beast and then come back and become airy and beautiful. her music is so aw inspiring.

12 What Kind of Man

A great new style for Florence with contrast and passion. If more songs are like this on her new album it will be a great success.

Masterpiece, great lyrics, huge rhythm changes during the song. At first I didn't like it that much, but it only grows in me since then.

Such a good song, catchy but still keeping its rock vibe. Its like a mix between both Lungs & Ceremonials, with new features added.

"What Kind of Man" is fantastic! I can't understand how some of the other songs are higher up than this masterpiece that ushered in a new era!

13 Breath of Life

It's the most epic song of florence! The moment I heard it I felt like going out and fight! Best soundtrack for Snow white and the huntsman! Definitely gonna watch this movie because of this magical song of florence+the machine! Love them, this is how true artists must be!

Just close your eyes, imagine whatever this song suggests you... And boom!, beauty comes out from everywhere. Doesn't it feel like an Avatar world is surrounding you?

Truly powerful and amazing. It simply flows out and fits together perfectly. There is so much energy at certain parts and the vocals sound wonderful with a haunted kinda sound. The was mesmerized the first time I heard this song and it definitely is one of my most favorite songs from florence and the machine!

Love Florence and the machine

This is one of the most haunting tracks I've ever heard. Creating a track like this is nothing short of genius. Listen to this once and it'll stay in your head for days. It should be a higher up the list

My favorite song from Florence ever
This is epic pure epic sound
This is her best vocal song
Those amazing high notes and the pain behind the song
I found myself in tears after listening for the first time

This song is purely epic. I'm pretty sure that there can be no other more epic song than this.

I think it's a beautiful song! And I simply love it.. The effect it produces when you listen to the howls and the desperate cries... Simply terrific and lovely!

Shocked that it's only on 15 place

16 Bedroom Hymns

I can't believe that this song is number 21. I thought it must be 4 or 5. The melody is absolutely amazing with drums and everything.

Just awesome, makes your heart races faster and faster.

Either they are great or you haven't heard this masterpiece

Should be number 1; it's definitely their best song. Very unique style - amcskillet

This should be at least in the top 5.

17 Only If for a Night

Though perhaps not quite as anthemic as "Shake It Out," this song possesses an inimitably etherial, almost surreal quality that all but transcends everything else she's yet accomplished. There are so many punctuating moments in the song, borne largely of its pacing and unique musical arrangement, that stir a certain shifting of gear-shifting sensation within the listener; she draws you into her quietly lugubrious twilight dreamland in the first few moments of the song, when suddenly the colors of that melancholy painting slam through the glass and envelop you the moment those gossamer harp notes give way to the driving thump of the percussive beat. Her vocals seamlessly travel between the eponymous choral pronouncement, emotional, yet perfectly restrained caterwauling, and a low quivering bleat. To bear witness to this tune's lyrical/musical transitions, marked invariably by the reiteration of the song's title line, is to expelled through a pinhole in an interdimensional wall; the ...more

This deserves to be right under Shake It Out, Dog Days..., and Cosmetic Love. THIS NEEDS MORE VOTES

The vocals of this song are so powerful. It brings out indescribable emotions within me. I can listen to this song again and again and it still gives me chills.

Seriously needs to be higher

WHAT?! How can anything top... Louder than sirens louder than bells sweeter than heaven and hotter than HELL

Inspiring, riveting, I love everything about this song and its irresistable beat. It gets stuck in my head so often, and I love more every time. Go Florence!

Louder than sirens. Louder than bells. Sweeter than heaven and hotter than HELL! How can you beat those intense lyrics?!

How is this not number one though?
