Best Massive Attack Songs


The Top Ten

1 Teardrop

Maybe the greatest song of the group included in the House M.D. Soundtrack and it passes really well - MatrixGuy

Should have been used more than just the one scene in prison break, epic influential song

Sexy and great for carving moves in water

My new favourite song

2 Unfinished Sympathy

It should be number one. Clearly, it's their best song! There is no need to resist the obvious. Not this time, at least.

Words cannot describe how this song creates such a powerful sensation. Just listen to it! - PositronWildhawk

Teardrop is overrated. This is MA's masterpiece, so much emotion displayed in one 5 minute song. Absolute true music

This should be #1. It's by far their best song. Teardrop is good and all but come on, this song takes the cake. - cjWriter1997

3 Risingson

One of my all time favorite songs! It's a dark, cinematic masterpiece that gives me chills every time I listen to it. Definitely my favorite MA song. Amazing!

The Best - Glauberson

4 Paradise Circus

The sexiest beat I've ever heard

One of my favorite MA songs, brilliant!

Really different in comparison to their other songs. For me their best song and album together with Mazzanine.

6 Safe from Harm

First song on Blue Lines and when I first heard it, totally blew me away. What a bassline. And love 3D's rap. MA have recorded some amazing tracks but for me, they'll never beat Safe From Harm.

THE BEST this evening! what a voice!

One of their best!


7 Atlas Air

Really different from their other tracks... Forged with intense emotions, Atlas Air makes you feel the anguish of a war prisoner

8 Splitting the Atom

Haunting, in a great way.

9 Daydreaming

My favorite Massive Attack song by far. It still has those traces of the hip hop roots that Massive Attack came from.

10 Inertia Creeps

When I think about a song representing 90s sound I always turn my view to this one.
It should be the first one in the top ten list.

The Contenders

11 Dissolved Girl

This song is true trip hop at its greatest! You feel beat the guitar you feel the music! This is the way a person feel before the explode. In any sense possible

Should definitely be higher on this list! I have The Matrix to thank for introducing me to this song!


12 Karmacoma

Should be among top ten at least!

Agreed! Such a chill flow.

Just Amazing!

13 Sly
14 Special Cases

All Feminazis and Angry Wives should hear this Song for a change. Simple thought provoking lyrics.

15 Protection

What? This song must on top 5 at least!

Possibly my favourite MA song

Tracey. Thorn.

16 Live With Me

One of the strongest vocal performances on any of their songs and the instrumentation creates a perfect sorrowful atmosphere. Their most moving track in my opinion.

17 Man Next Door

I reckon this one should be higher. It has got a great rhythm to it, and an interesting theme. Hymn of the Big Wheel should be on here somewhere.

18 What Your Soul Sings

This songs is highly underrated. It's one of their best tracks, full of slick beats with an emotional melody in the voice. It's very smooth and relaxing, but full sentiment.
