Best Nelly Furtado Songs


The Top Ten

1 Say It Right

I love her voice and the beat I can listen to it all day

I love many songs from Nelly Furtado but "Say It Right" is really special to me. This wonderful track makes you think a little bit - Irina2932

I love her songs but this is like the best song. This song is very special to me, it makes me think of a very special person in my life. I love it.

When you change the velocity of the song, (the speed and pitch) slightly faster it sounds so much better for me. Making me love this song even more.

2 All Good Things (Come to an End)

this is first song heard by me of Nelly furtado's so I just love the way the song is composed and specially the lyrics are awesome and offcourse her voice is like an angel,...

This song is a classic! It's still good to listen to even up to this year (2012), and for the years to come.

One of the best songs I have come across

Amazing song. I can listen to it whole day. I love her voice.

3 Maneater

When I saw the video for this song I fell in love with it. It could have been turned into a great movie. And Nelly looked so beautiful and dangerously hot there. Great song - Irina2932

This is definitely her best song and her biggest hit. It's memorable and catchy and will stick in your head for days!

This is her trademark song with her best chorus! This was number 1 across the globe when it came out, should be first!

This is a great song. One of the best of Nelly Furtado.

4 Promiscuous

Timbaland beat(one of his best ones) Nelly's sexy near enchanting voice, an all banged out video.. Clearly a recipe for a hit... Dominated the party soundtracks when it came... Great song!

One of the best songs all time this is first song heard for Nelly furtado's I can listen to it all day and video just great

I love this song so much. It may not send out the best message, which is why Furtado probably switched it from "Promiscuous" to "Mysterious", but the song is still pretty good. The beat is cheery and uplifting, and the chorus is so distinct from the verses. A perfect blend of hip-hop/rap and pop.

Words don't express the awesomness of this song.

This is probably the best Nelly Furtado's song that exists. The lyrics are really powerful and her voice has never sounded this great. Just perfect.

its such a great ballad and my favourite song of Nelly *love it*

First single from her first album Whoa, Nelly!, a rare debut hit - MatrixGuy

7 Broken Strings

the best song! it makes me cry everytime I am listening it...
first I've heard in in the Vampire's diaries

8 Turn Off the Light

This is by far the best Nelly Furtado song. The lyrics about looking for love in yourself by changing your ways are great same as her strong, uniqe voice and the awesome beat. It sounds nice and deserves #1!

9 In God's Hands

Great meaning song best one

10 Manos Al Aire

Hands In The Air is amazing.

Like the song in Spanish

The Contenders

11 Somebody to Love
12 Explode

AMAZING! Nostalgic and it defines my teenage years! #1 song!

Emotional and natural

Just amazing it’s one of that song that you could hear all day!

13 Powerless (Say What You Want)

The song has the most meaning and has a brilliant structure. I simply could not live without this song to help me through the bad times. This and "I'm Like A Bird" are the fun and free Nelly, that we no longer see...

This song has a powerful message and sounds like old time Indian music (not bollywood) - lassidoggy

If you'd have heard this song, then you'd have said it right...

I want this song on single for my jukebox

14 Big Hoops (Bigger the Better)

Amazing, mixing both mainstream dance with the soft R&B we saw Nelly do on "Loose. " Essentially, this mixes the best from her debut album and Loose.

Underrated. The outro is just perfect DnB. - ZeroBlaster

Aussum voice with just aussum beats..
I hear it everyday
Sing song dosen't deserve this position in the list

15 Spirit Indestructible
16 Give It to Me

Definitely better than All Good Things Come To An End! Justin Timberlake is in this!

The beat and chorus are addicting, the best bass ever, and her voice just sounds amazing. should be #1 for sure.

17 Who Wants to Be Alone
18 Night is Young
19 Waiting for the Night
20 Legend

Hidden treasure in her first album.

21 Bucket List

A very catchy song and one which stays in your head the whole day! Should at least be in top 15!

Awesome song with meaningful lyrics that explain feelings we all face as humans and things we want to acheive before we die. It also has a very dreamy video.

I think this song's amazing! Made me realise that YES even I gotta make my bucket list.I always listen to it when I'm lw and this song never failes to lift my spirit. Love it!

22 Jump

This song is damn cool, it should be in top ten

23 Afraid
24 The Grass is Green

Although the Folklore era has always been considered a financial drop from Woah, Nelly! But this is Nelly's best album lyrically. So nostalgic. It reminds me of that 2003-05 era when I was very young child, and it reminds me of my home country - Ireland. The Grass IS Green. I love it. It's personally my favourite song and will stay close to me forever. "Oh yeah, the grass is green! " So powerful. Her mellow voice really goes with it. It's several different life experiences from a decade ago in one song. Impeccable. Love it! Great job, Nelly!

It's a shame it was only released in Germany because this song defines FREEDOM.

Very special to me in my heart. The best song ever made. Enchanting.

I love this song so much. Her best song for me.
