Best Florence and the Machine Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Hardest of Hearts

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.


This is my absolute favorite F+TM songs ever. The beat is so strong and the power of her voice and just the whole melody line is so lovely yet catchy. It should get a higher place on here or at least more recognition by others. I really recommend this song. Very strong song.

42 Strangeness and Charm

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!

It is and will always be my favourite song from the band. 5min16 of eargasm.

43 Bird Song

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!

44 Stand by Me

Fantastic. She faced a challenge in recording this iconic song...and won! Move over Ben E King.

45 Sweet Nothing

Awesome, This surely deserves number 1. Calvin Harris, you rule

This isn't Florence + The Machine,
This is Florence without The Machine!
It's a good song, but it shouldn't be on here

46 Falling

The "I'll dance myself up drunk myself down. Find people to love, love people too drunk" part is just so heavenly

Love this song - if this is only 36th then the other ones I've not listened to yet must be REALLY good

This song is absolutely fantastic in every way. It definitely should not be 44th.

47 Remain Nameless

So haunting. I love the lyrics to this. Listening to the song is like going to a different world.

48 Which Witch

This feels like catharsis, vindication and rapture all rolled up in one glorious track. Florence's vocals soar, the drums are pounding, and the brass section drives it home. Brilliant.

I'm surprised that this song isn't in the top ten! I am so in love with the vocals, for it's very powerful and kind of swoons me at the same time. The brass, drums, and vocals are all beautifully twined together... definitely makes me (internally) scream with excitement.

51 My Best Dress
52 Make Up Your Mind

I love how F+TM songs always seem to relate to each other in one way or another and this one definitely reminds me of Swimming. I can't believe nobody has added this song to the list! I like a lot of the other songs too, like Hurricane Drunk and My Boy Builds Coffins.

Best song by them.


53 Hospital Beds

One of the greatest Florence + The Machine songs out there.

This is my favourite song dunno why I've always liked it and Florence absolutely smashed it making the original look a bit crap

54 Are You Hurting the One You Love?

This is an absolutely amazing song. The tribal, metal beats and repetition during the song make it great. And the lyrics are perfect!

56 Galaxy of the Lost

One of her best songs ever

57 As Far As I Could Get

Good song and the harp is back but I feel that something missing.

58 Long & Lost

Oh god this song makes me wanna cry! How beautiful! Maybe my favourite from HBHBHB...

Wow, not much love for HBHBHB on here. I think this song is a hidden gem, and so emotionally moving.

Long and lost and Which Witch are my favorite songs from HBHBHB I think.
