Best Florence and the Machine Songs
The Contenders: Page 2
It simply leaves you be begging for more. Really underrated track, I absolutely think it should have made it onto the Standard Edition or at least the Deluxe Edition of the album rather than the "B-Sides, Covers and Rarities" disc from the 3rd or 4th re-release of Lungs. Simply an amazing cover, not only for Florence's voice, but the Machine's phenomenal instrumentation, especially Tom Monger on harp. I love when harp is incorporated into popular music, its unfortunately so rare in modern music. Best song off of Lungs, period.V 3 Comments
Because this did not appear on either album, I've never really felt the incentive to lists to it, but once I did I found it awe-inspiring. The lyrics have such meaning and emotion so that you form an emotions connection. Also, the instrumental is another great aspect-for example the violins playing in the first 10 seconds is a definite highlight and just really solidifies how amazing this song really is. If you haven't already heard this, I highly recommend doing so, you absolutely won't regret it!
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! THIS THE BEST F&M SONG THERE IS.IT SHOULD DEFINITELY BE NUMBER ONE FOR IT IS THE GODDESS OF ALL F&M SONGS. SUCH A HYPNOTIC AND CATCHY SONG. YOU'D BE AN IDIOT NOT TO CHECK THIS SONG OUT. D:
I have listened to every single song Florence + the Machine has produced and I will confidently say that this is my absolute favorite. Nothing compares. Really! Nothing! This song is so amazing...that being said, I was well into my Florence obsession before I ever listened to it, as it is on Lungs Deluxe...it isn't one of her headliners, which is a shame, because IT IS PERFECTION. No fan of Florence should be able to call himself/herself a true Flow until he/she has embraced the art of Swimming.
This is my favorite song ever!V 1 Comment
By far and away the best Florence song ever made. Make it number one! - eyah
Florence doesn't perform this song nearly enough. It belongs in the top 10 without question.
Why isn't this song in the top ten. It's incredible.
This song is just AMAZINGV 6 Comments
Its good, but I find it a bit long & repetitive
This is the best song that has ever happened to me.V 4 Comments
Love that song and it is really good choice to close the album! Love Flo!
Love the chorus! And the closing is perfect...V 1 Comment
How can this not be in the top 10!? It's so beautifully hollow. I love listening to this song while watching the stars, makes me feel like I have all of them in my heart at the same time, almost bursting with energy! My favorite song of all time. When I die I'm going to be listening to this song while I'm slipping. Love you Florence.
Haunting. Sends shiver's down my spine. Lyrics are amazing. Florence + the Machine have made a lot of really good songs, but none come close to the awesomeness of this song.
This song is so beautiful and makes me realise that we all have our own imaginary world and spend a lot of time inside it. It shows that the happy world in our head, has it's dark and aggrovating secrets that are trying to stay hidden. Love it, love it, love it!
This song is amazing!V 10 Comments
This is a very great song. It is the best off her new album. Although, the new album is not as great as the last two albums, it's still a very good album.
Flo is back with her third album 'How Big How Blue How Beautiful'! The song is just majestic and inspiring! Flo is an angel.
Great song and demo version is probably better than original
Spunky beat and rhythm
Makes you want to dance!
If "Kiss with a Fist" is so far down this list then I am wondering what's waiting for me up there
Fell in love with this song since Jennifer's Body movie.

ARE YOU KIDDING? THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING SONGS BY F+TM!
Should be in the top 5!
How ANNOYINGLY STRANGE!
Bful song.. Has to b in top 5.. Amazing lyrics and her bful voice makes it epic..V 1 Comment
Great song really pumps you up. I thought id be in the top 15 at least... Anyways awesome song.
My personal #1! I'm really addicted to this masterpiece and it gives me goosebumps every time.V 2 Comments
A beautiful song that showcases Florence's powerful voice and creativity, it is not as catchy as "Dog Days", but far better than "Falling".
I love all of their songs, but this is the one that truly speaks to me in particular. It really lifts me up like nothing else. It makes me feel happy and understood. It's so, so beautiful.V 2 Comments
This is seriously my favorite song ever. It has the best metaphors about death I have ever heard, the boy literally representing death, and that death gets to everyone, rich or poor. Also, that once someone dies they are just thrown in the ground and loose all meaning to the world above.
It takes the best of all her songs and puts it into one. I don't understand how "Heavy in your arms" is higher than this. This, Blinding, Rabbit Heart, and Heartlines are the best.
Amazing lyrics and her voice only makes it that much more great!
In my attempts to determine the song's meaning, it seems to be a generational curse from some great Grandmother who took her life with a gun to the mouth.
Am I getting it?
Upbeat, lyrics are meaningful and just a beautiful song. Definitely deserves to be higher!V 2 Comments
Why is this 50? This song is amazing.. My favorite on her new album.
This song deserves the top 2 spot on the list next to shake it out. Listen to it. It's really good = )
Oh my god this song is so catchy! Why is this down here?
I could listen to this for days. It's so awesome.V 7 Comments
I love this song so much! I can't belive it isn't in the top 10!
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!V 4 Comments
A beautiful and transcending song. The bridge really helps lead up to a lovely chorus, which is perhaps my favorite part of the song. It's has a very melancholy feel to it despite it's beat, like many of her songs. You can definitely feel her voice adding emotion to this wonderful song.
I absolutely love this song! It is so amazing and the lyrics are well written.V 2 Comments
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 rankingV 1 Comment
Musically stimulating and lyrically brilliant. Flo talks about passion as a science experiment - only in the most beautiful way possible. You sense the urgency of her desire through the building pace of the song. The drum beat pulsates through your body and you really FEEL this song.
It is on the deluxe edition, but it could have been a single, it has the same atmosphere than No Light and its very catchy!
Strangeness and Charm along with Heartlines should be in the TOP TEN! Also Spectrum I love Flo & Co!
Because it is not very popular new fans usually skip this song and that is sad, for it is an amazing song that describes the passion between lovers.V 6 Comments
This is actually my favourite song EVER, it's just amazing I personally think that it should be at the top, I hope that the reason it isn't is because it hasn't been heard as much as her others and not because people don't like it as much. I love all of her songs though so I guess they all deserve to be at the top, like a massive tie haha. I would've voted for over the love but I like this one the tiniest bit more and this one had less votes :(
Are you kidding me? Bird Song has got to be one of the best. Florence alters between slow, haunting verses and fast, upbeat sections in a way never done before. Check this song out, it's truly one of a kind. The lyrics are dark and somewhat creepy. Kind of reminds me of Edgar Allan Poe's "A Tell-Tale Heart".
Bird song is the best then Never Let Me Go and Girl with One Eye comes.
One of my top five!V 3 Comments
