Best Mumford & Sons Songs

Top songs by one the most talented bands out there.

The Top Ten

1 The Cave

Ah-mazing! The lyrics and music alike. My favorites:
1) The Cave
2) Little Lion Man
3) I Will Wait

This is an amazing song. Down to every single note and every single word. It left me breathless, and I'm sure that I'm not the only one. Something only Mumford & Sons can come up with.

This song is absolutely amazing! This was the first Mumford and Sons song that I heard and it will forever be my favorite! My favorite thing to do is play it in my car with the windows down and the volume cranked up. Try it! You haven't lived until you do, trust me!

Really, I think it's Top 10 in Bests Songs 2012! Nice, nice, nice!

2 Little Lion Man


"But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really f***** it up this time
Didn't I, my dear? "

This Verse was really cool to me and loved the instruments and has deep and high grade lyrics with a great meaning

Great Great Great song... I say Hopeless Wanderer is #1 if you did it today.

This song conveys so much emotion it has a very special place in my heart to be honest:-D

This song gives me so much power and gets me back on track every time I listen to it!

3 I Will Wait

Best song of them. It is just perfect. I wish I could be one of your son laugh out loud

I would be sitting on the couch, watching T.V., when this song get stuck in my head. And it's awesome. I can't help but sing to it, until my sister's just like, "shut up"

Are you kidding me? This is the best one!

When he says and I will wait I will wait for you he gives me hope that one day my dad will come back home.. That's why this song means so much..

4 White Blank Page

Awesome song, so deep and meaningful. This was the song that made me love Mumford and sons. It came at a perfect moment and it has been my favorite since then.

Love this one, it has so much emotion, the official music video of it is just amazing

I love this song really no one knows about it but its great

Girlfriend showed me this. Has been my favorite by them ever since.

5 Sigh No More

A great song with powerful shifts in the flow of the song. Meaningful lyrics. The soft beginning makes the dynamic end sound great.

Awesome soft countery song I love it

Most diverse of all of their songs.

The end is amazing

6 After the Storm

This song is so much more beautiful than most realize. It's touched me in a way that no other song has ever done. It changed my life, and it should be higher.

Believe it or not, this beautiful and deep song brought me to become an everyday listener of Mumford.
This song with its calming mood and great tunes caught my attention quick. I believe this song should be of higher ranks than 9th.

Of course "The Cave" would be at the top... Dunno why I bother looking at these lists. What's ACDCs? Oh yeah Back In Black... Kings Of Leon's? Of course, it's Sex On Fire... So insulting to every band that has a list... Uughgg

So calming and beautiful, I feel like I have meditated after listen to this song.

7 Winter Winds

Some of the greatest lines in there: "Pestilence is won when you are lost and I am gone. " Another fantastic line that is found is "The shame that sent me off from the God that I once loved, was the same that sent me into your arms. " Pure genius. Marcus Mumford also claims this is his favorite. It should be higher.

So meaningful in all of the lyrics, and the trumpet towards the end is absolutely eerie and beautiful.

I think this one was written by Winston...anyway, it's beautiful, never fails to make me cry

Great song probably the best I've heard by the band, should be higher up the list.

8 Dust Bowl Dance

Their best work of art. Telling a complete story, this song has great power and many emotions such as grief, hope and wrath.

This song moves every fibre of your being and encompasses everything that mumford and sons is as a band. I LOVE this song

This deserves to be in the top ten, it is amazing, tells a complete story, dark and mysterious, definitely is better than some in top ten

Hey 7nth place, honestly this is my favorite, but I understand why others don't like it as much but at least its in the top ten

9 Roll Away Your Stone

Underrated Mumford & Sons, song.
Should be higher, listen to it a couple of times before it catches on.

--Batman Out

Very Awesome! Emotional and has a great meaning. Marcus is at his potential at the part about Stars... Love it

Amazing and spirit lifting

Love the part about stars!

10 Believe

I still can not believe (haha) why this song is such underrated... Their album "Wilder Mind" was the first I have heard from this band so I don't know about their old style... But I like this kind of music which is presented in this album so I really like these songs (for instance Believe, Snake Eyes, Hot Gates...). The style is a little bit similar to the band Coldplay, which produces very good music, too... - TopTenMusic

It's so different from all their other songs... it sound like the traditional British Alternative.

Best ever. Simply best ever.

Best M&S song ever.. It's new so many haven't probably heard it.. Search for it, listen and download. Real new style.. The best!

The Contenders

11 Babel

It's true the lyrics are not as strong as the other mumford and sons tracks.. However this for me is the best song by the band

Love love love this song! Hands down one of my favorite... It makes me smile makes my heart beat faster- this is the song guys!

Most energetic! Love love love it blah! Adore can't even talk right now.

One of their best songs. The music, the lyrics is just amazing. I wonder how it isn't in the top ten.

12 Awake My Soul

This song is so beautiful... It is such an emotional and beautiful song :D

Every time I listen to this, I feel something special about my self and it literally is soul awakening song. It is in my all time favourite list for a reason.

13 Lover of the Light

One of the best songs I have ever listened to. This song surely should be moved to the top 10 list.

Top three are amazing songs, but this has definitely to be my favorite.

It's a very good song. I wonder why it's so much below in the list.

Only song I Know and I like it

14 Hopeless Wanderer

Probably one of Mumford's most underrated songs- technically brilliant instrumentally as well as emotive lyrics that complete a memorable song.

Mumford and Sons best song ever. Highly underrated. "Do not tell me all is fine when I lose my head I lose my spine."

The Whole Package of a song. The rhythmic transition works beautifully and the banjo get's you up and about! Up there with Little Lion Man

The transition from common time to twelve eight gets me every time! Definitely their best song

15 Holland Road

Definitely my favourite.
Especially like the lyrics "But I'll still believe though there's cracks you'll see, When I'm on my knees I'll still believe, and when I've hit the ground, neither lost nor found if you'll believe in me I'll still believe"

Favourite song of them. Really touching!

Best song on Babel.

This song should be much higher in this list.
Probably in top 3. Lyrics are awesome and music is equally good.
Loved it!

16 Ghosts That We Knew

Love the lyrics: "Hold me still, bury my heart on the cold, hold me still, bury my heart next to yours." Gives me the chills every time.

Such deep lyrics. I love the "oh they gave me such a fright"

There best song, all of they're songs are the best!

So true the words fit my life and I say to my wife

17 Tompkins Square Park

Masterpiece! I love this so much its incredible

Best of mumford and sons rock song ever

A masterpiece, absolutely beautiful!

I think it is the best, all over

18 I Gave You All

How can you say that your truth is better than ours?
Shoulder to shoulder now brother we carry no arms.
And the blind man sleeps on the doorway his home.
If only I had an enemy bigger than my apathy I could've won.

I don't know why, but this always gets me.

It's this song that made me listen to them more... So powerful and a lot of people can relate to it

By far their best song!

I think this one is way better than other. It's so... Sensual...

19 Timshel

This song really gets to your heart. It is so beautiful and it's probably one of those songs that can save lives.

Emotional and slow, really brings the message

This song represents all the strong independent people out there like my bestie BECKAY amazing lyrics adore

20 The Wolf

This song is epic. The way they sounded the lyrics is awesome.

This is awesome... Worth hearing

Mind blowing track. so energetic and refreshing. Love you Mumford and sons

so good

21 Ditmas

Best song on Wilder Mind. Criminally underrated.

This is my favourite Mumford & Sons's song by far. - RichardSSG

This should be in the top five. Fantastic song

Awesome track. Just wonderful

22 Wilder Mind

Underrated as is, this song (along with a few others obviously) through a very dark time in my life. Thank you, Mumford and Sons, for making this track.

This is such a lovely great song! wish they put it out as a single.
it means so much to me.

23 Below My Feet

The cave, Littlion man, I will wait are all great songs... but this one... starts calmly, goes crescendo through first and second verse and last verse, I just shout as loud as I can with tears of joy. Every.. Time.
And don't get me started on the lyrics of the song, I'll cry again.

Below feet is not worthy to be this low should easily be top 5 so melodic and soothing one of those songs that will always make you smile!

Below my feet is just such a beautiful song, seriously most of their songs are just amazing but give this one a listen and see for yourself

My favorite Mumford song by far. The contrast between very small and quiet and bombastic sounds gives me chills every time.

24 Broken Crown

I can't believe this is so low on the list.

Amazing song, my favorite. And man, this song have great competition, two incredible albuns. Should be higher on the list.

Incredible song

For its number 1

25 Whisper In the Dark

It should in in top ten such a nice song

Can't believe this is so low - top 3 for me!

Wut? How is this 23rd!?

26 Thistle & Weeds

Favorite song to sing a thing this point for me ;-;
Good song

The music of this song is simply awesome and powerful

I love this song just the whole everything about it

Are you kidding me? This is the number 1 song.

27 The Boxer

I suppose that most people haven't heard this. They did it better than Simon & Garfunkel, and for a Folk Rock Band, there's no better compliment

Absolutely LOVED the song! They did it better than Simon & Garfunkel in my opinion!

Love the dobro by Jerry Douglas

28 Home

Beautiful! Best song ever! Makes me cry!

"I ran away in floods of shame
I'll never tell how close I came
As I cross the Holland road
You went left and I went right
As the moon hung proud and white
You would of loved it here tonight"

Love it!

29 Lovers' Eyes

This song is easily there best, like a lot of there songs it starts of slow and builds but the execution here is fantastic, I can't think of another song that comes close to this, it is there magnum opus

I don't usually like slow songs but when it is this amazing and moving its hard not to, should be top three in my opinion can't believe its not in the top ten, such an underrated song, listen to this before you vote and youll understand why it deserves to be much higher

Great song, I was going to vote sigh no more but 27th? Really? So underrated, vote it up!

Have you guys ever listened to this? Come on.. it's their masterpiece.

30 There Will Be Time

Come on, this is hilarious

Best song of all time

This whole EP is one of the best group of songs they have ever recorded. There will be time is a beautiful song, same with wona. If you like MAS, check out Johannesburg.


31 Liar

It's just so great that I can't describe it!

Best mumford n sons song. Should be number one. Excellent music. Love everything about it and I'm a huge fan. This song is number one

Really nice song :)
At least top 3

32 Where Are You Now

Really a very good song should listen it patiently I can guarantee than this song would be at number 1

It's so awesome... love it every time I listen to it..

Should have been in the Top 5..

It's too good..

33 The Enemy

The Enemy is perfect. It's so soft and sorrowful without being overdone or melodramatic. My absolute favorite

34 Hold On to What You Believe

Can't believe this one is the last one... Seriously? It's such a powerful song.. But of course The Cave would be the at the top... Ugh

Such a powerful song with a clear and inspiring message should be higher on the list!

35 Monster

I thought this was Blue October at first and I just had to hear it again. When I realized who it was and put a whole new spin on the band for me I fell in love all over again!

An absolutely breathtaking ballad. Definitely a highlight off of Wilder Mind

I'm so disappointed, why isn't this song higher

The chorus in this song is just amazing

36 Snake Eyes

HOT DANG. Okay I was getting a little worried after the first two releases. Didn't give me the goosebumps like their old stuff. This one finally did.

Beautiful Song!

37 Cold Arms

This is the one that makes me like "wooh.. who are these guys.." this song is so beautiful that I did sit all day and listen to it.

38 Delta

I'll meet you at the delta...

Best song on the 4th album!

39 Woman

I can't believe this isn't even on the list at all!
best song of the new album, by far!

40 Reminder

"Constant reminder of where I can find her, a light that might give me he way"
Short, soothing and entrancing. This song deserves to be in the top ten for sure!

I am so sad this song is so short :(
One of my favorites for sure!

41 Unfinished Business
42 Guiding Light - Mumford & Sons
43 To Darkness

Perfect song really feels like gonna go in darkness but luckily just escaped beautiful song what is it doing here it should at least be at top 10

44 Not With Haste

Their best song. "We will run and scream, you will dance with me, we'll fulfill our dreams and we'll be free."

45 Learn Me Right

This song, which was in Brave, is so wonderful. Its moving and passionate. Its also in their album Babel. I love these lines: "you said yes as I said please." I also love the songs Lover's Eyes and The Cave.

46 For Those Below

Not very popular, but easily one of the best, most deep and heartfelt.

47 42

This is legitimately insane! So emotional!

48 Just Smoke

Class song!
