Best Nightwish Songs


The Contenders: Page 5

81 My Walden

Okay, My Walden should NOT be this low. First of all, the ending is beyond spectacular. Second, it is the only song I can sing and not sound like a dying animal, so I can put it higher on my list. Third, the lyrics are amazing. I could come up with reasons all day long, but long story short, this song should totally be higher.

82 Know Why the Nightingale Sings V 1 Comment
83 Nymphomaniac Fantasia

I know that a lot of people don't like this song, but give it a second chance. The lyrics aren't so amazing to me, but the music is phenomenal. And combine that with Tarja's singing this song should be at least in the top 20. I love this song. It is the perfect mix of soft and heavy.

84 Bare Grace Misery

How is Bare Grace Misery so low? Have you not heard the chorus? I absolutely adore this song. It's the best mix of symphonic metal, awesome vocals, and classic rock. I'm kind of disappointed at the placement of this song. Wishmaster is my favorite album, by far. (Well, it ties with Imaginaerum...)

85 Forever Yours

Beautiful and a sadness enticing variation. Something most positive that will alarm the heart into feeling enveloped in a series of heartfelt emotion. Quiet and almost disregarded emotion but still able to be possessed.
Someone speaking to themselves - nearly too unfortunate to hear - but it is true. And they are letting their self know they will walk by them forever, even if it means being perceived from others that one person is walking - alone.
But in a life of the lonely eyed, they only notice others little, in a made up world of their own created by their solitude.

86 Eyes of Sharbat Gula
87 Away

One of my best songs, so emotionally strong.

88 Lagoon
89 Meadows of Heaven

Amazing song. I cannot BELIEVE it's last! It must be a trick of my eyes, because I seem to remember this song being absolutely spectacular. Should be within the top 20. Totally. What in the world is it doing at number 103 of 103 songs?

Great, great, great... This song is so Beautiful, anette olzon's sweet voice fit perfectly with the beautiful melody (nightwish's best ballad).

Last but worth a listen, very good

90 The Carpenter

How was this not on here already?

91 Sleepwalker

Something odd about it holds some amount of importance.. To our lives as a whole, to humanity. It does in truth hold a deeper meaning created to bring down happy hearts, to drain one into devilish sorrows, all concerning the world. Sinful actions committed are advised, from this song, to be taken considerably and not lightly. The greatly evident sin here would be lust, especially that for sexual relations or encounters; a great culprit in modern psych tracked down to the early days of our existence. To look at this in an even deeper way, I believe this sleepwalker seduction could be very well as it says, while it could also be plain and simple lust.. For anything. Or even possibly just evil. Or sin for that matter. However way one wants to put it, the dark multiple sided meaning behind the song illustrates a profound skeptic in the mind that leaves the listener, if well-thought provoked, in an array of vast uneasiness and chilling sentiment.

92 Imaginaerum

Whatever I see that comes last will make me sad, because it's Nightwish, no song deserves the last three. But I'm definitely a special kind of sad that this is #94 of 95. It's too unique, symphonic and epic to be #94. I know it's not a known song like Storytime, Amaranth and stuff but we can still do better than this people.Note that I used capital letters for this comment, which I don't bother using in general. So, yeah, important subject.

93 For the Heart I Once Had

Not the best Nightwish song, but deserves better.

94 Our Decades In the Sun

People have to seriously listen to 'Endless Forms Most Beautiful'...this is a gem
