Best Nightwish Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Dead Boy's Poem

The most beautiful Power/Symphonic metal song ever written and played, deserves to be number 1. Tarja's voice is absolutely brilliant!

This one is the #1 by far.

The most wonderful song I have ever heard from them! Makes me want to fly! :-)

One of most beautiful songs in any genre, really needs to be at least in top 10

43 I Want My Tears Back

Great song, great melody, great lyrics... My favorite out of the old nightwish album Imaginaerum it's really good

This song is amazing. I'm surprised it isn't in the top ten... One of my favorite songs from Nightwish. The lyrics are great!

This song is great. It immediately starts strong and then it stays beautiful. I absolutely love the solo.

Again this my favourite among many

44 The Carpenter

I really like this one. I really think Tuomas should sing more!

How was this not on here already?

45 Weak Fantasy

Heavy, and great song. we see floor jansen's heavy vocals in this and yours is an empty hope, which is nice. the name gives me chills, I mean its amazing like wouldn't you watch a movie named WEAK FANTASY come on, it's screaming 'i'm majestically brutal' and that "lust for FANNTAASSYYY! " part GOOD!
take this to a higher place than Elan or I will shoot you.

46 White Night Fantasy

This song is made in a way that sounds so pure and I think Tarja sings it beatifully, silent parts, amazingly made chorus powerful and quiet at the same time, meanwhile comforting and feels magical as well.

What's wrong with you people. Listen to this song!

47 Crownless

The guitar work in this song should automatically place it in the top 10.. Seriously guys...

48 Elan

Awesome song, sounds better every time you listen to it.

Amazing Floor, flutework was incredible...

Should be lot higher. The intro vocals of Floor's was very good. I liked that part when she sings "whooo-whoo". - zxm

49 Come Cover Me

How can this song be at this place? It deserves much better.

One of the most catchy Nightwish songs, no question about that. Should be head-to-head with Nemo.

Its a easy 10 in my books

50 Sleeping Sun

This is the most awesome song of Nightwish, epic, solemn and touching. An eclipse shows us what we truly are in times of darkness and how we can be the best and fight for what is right.

Sleeping sun is the most beautiful and emotional song I have ever listen to. Sad that it is 15. That person have a heart of stone.

How this song is as low as number 26 will always remain a mystery to me.

The lyrics are very calm, neither happy nor sad, and the melody is very soothing. Tarja's voice really shines on this track, especially at the end of the song when she so perfectly reaches the high notes.

The most beautiful song of Nightwish by far!

51 7 Days to the Wolves

#92 of 94. You must be kidding.
It's one their best. It's a bombastic, orchestral ballad with so much power it blows you away. I have a painting of arctic wolves in snow at night with dark blue skies and a silvery moon in my room. When this track started playing on the album I could almost see them running around and howl to the moon. This song bears such an emotion and imagination that it blows you away. In this particular song, Anette, who is my least favourite of the 3 singers (she's not bad but I just think she sounds more punk-ish than symphonic), is just as good as Tarja. An excellent track.

This song is so underrated. This deserves so much more recognition. It's a great song from start to finish. I could listen to it again and again and not get bored. It's so epic!

For god sake this is the best song on dark passion play the poet and the pendulum is over rated.

53 Rest Calm

From 4.50min my mind blows! My absolute favorite Nightwish song... I'm shocked it's not higher up

This is another favorite of mine. Words can't describe how amazing this song is! This needs more recognition.

An underrated album's underrated song. Amazing.


54 Moondance

I am devastated by seeing this unbelievably good instrumental in last place in a list of best Nightwish tracks of all time.

It should be number one, so vote with me and push this song to the top 10!

Beautiful and intelligent arrangement

This should be way higher..

56 The Cadence of Her Last Breath

I can't believe this song wasn't on the list until now. Annette's vocals are spectacular and this song is so emotionally powerful. Definitely one of my favorites. This song is very underrated.

57 Sacrament of Wilderness

It's one of those rare songs that actually sounds better live than in studio. It has so much power with the double kick drums with the guitar and emotion with one of Tarja's harder songs to sing.

58 Romanticide

The mix of hard rock and calm bits feels like music from god himself

Amazing song in top 20 for sure

The best, recognize it!

Successfuly Systemically arranged.

My best Pink Floyd song ever, and I am so glad for this version, too! I can listen both over and over again. Marco is absolutely fantastic!
