Best Sara Bareilles Songs


The Top Ten

1 Gravity

Hands down to Sara Bareilles and her AMAZING song writing skill and AWESOME singing talent! Gravity is one of my favorite songs. I can listen to this song everyday and never get tired of it.

This song is my go to whenever I am going to sing somewhere. I don't have to worry or prepare because I know its such a beautiful song it will get a good response. I won a talent competition with it as well. I can never stop singing it all the time and it has been years since I started.

I first heard this song on The Vampire Diaries then I downloaded it and fell in love with it! It is such a beautiful song and I love the high note "down" in the bridge of the song. It is my favourite song and I never get tired of it.

I don't care what others say but I think gravity is the best song because every time on hear the song it makes me cry her voice just cuts through
She has always been and she is she will always be an amazing singer and songwriter she is amazing

I love this song so much! It's probably my favorite song! She has encouraged me to stand up for what I believe in at my school where it is so hard because whenever you do stand up for what you believe in, the teachers think you're talking back. Sara has an amazing voice and is one of my favorite female artists! You rock, Sara!

I fell in love with this song the moment I first heard it.

One of the best songs! The music video is cute

Its very inspirational and its music is so soothing

3 Love Song

This Is my all time favorite song, not saying the others are bad though.

This is definitely my fave song by Sara Bareilles- it should definitely be first

I think this one should be #1 I love this song it shows that men can't control women

How is this not first?

4 King of Anything

Before I go into a debate round, I listen to this song and remind myself that no one can tell me who to be. This song gives me confidence I lack when I feel like people are judging me. The upbeat tune is an extra feel-good plus.

This song is defintely the best! its like sunshine so fullfilling and makes you feel light like walking on air.

I think it is a wonderful song full of feeling and a lousy relationship which is good to listen to especially for young teens who have had breakups

The thing I like best about this song is that it manages to be a musical "the reason you suck" speech while being clever, catchy, and so memorable... this is one of the best songs I've ever heard... - Spark_Of_Life

5 Breathe Again

This song is my favorite.! I heard it in vampire diaries in 2nd season (Katherine remembering the day she left)! It should be no. 1!

Heard it on the vampire diaries... It was beautiful... Heard it again on in plain sight... It was beautiful as usual... This song is so magical, mystical...

Beautiful song I love the lyrics: "Car is parked, bags are packed, but what kind of heart doesn't look back? " Gives me chills every time. And the chords are so beautiful...

One of deep song from it

The lyrics are so purposeful. Never does Sara write lyrics just to make them rhyme! This song is so professional and needs more love!

Bro this song truly DESERVES to be in top 2 rank! So amazing, that amazing that I can't spend one day without listening to it. Way better than her any other songs. Hands down! The greatest song is here.

"Compare where you are to where you want to be and you'll get nowhere." Sara has such meaningful lyrics.

Every time this comes on from my playlist I just get a immediate boost of energy and joy and the lyrics are amazing as always

7 City

Takes you to another world...


8 Gonna Get Over You

Excluding anything from Little Voice, Gonna Get Over You remains high and far away Sara's best song to date.
The bouncy piano line, the lowly-layered snaps, the groovy guitar and bass lines, and obviously Sara Bareille's excellent singing, make this an extremely fun piece of hers, and so do the lyrics. Approaching a break-up in a very inquisitive and loose way, Sara once again nails the singer-songwriter vibe, taking a very observational approach of herself without getting in the slightest bit pretentious, and trying to keep an optimistic head to things. Hell, you wouldn't even notice that she's sad in the first place, that's how good of a job she does at playing this role in the song. And of course, as with any Sara Bareilles song, the melodies and chord progressions are ON POINT! Get this song higher guys.

This is an amazing song. It gives hope to people who are going through a rough break up!

Awesome song with an upbeat tempo

9 Chasing the Sun

Some of the most beautiful lyrics and analogies!

What an amazing storyline! Introspective.

Such a great song!

"all we can do is try
It feels like we're still alive"
Awesome song

10 Winter Song

The harmonies in this song are gorgeous!

A beautiful ballad with Ingrid Michaelson. I just love the lyrics and the feel of this song.

"They say that things just cannot grow
Beneath the winter snow,
Or so I have been told.

They say we're buried far,
Just like a distant star
I simply cannot hold."

The Contenders

11 Bottle It Up

I listen to this song over and over again... This is most beautiful song I've ever heard.. Maybe because I relate to this song

Best song ever, so catchy and cool!

12 Many the Miles

This is the very best song of sara for me. So... Catchy and sexy

13 Manhattan

A beautiful, brooding song by Sara. She is just amazing. It gives you the chills and the way her voice shakes at the end of the lines is just beautiful. An amazing song by a great artist. She deserves that Grammy Nomination

How is this not top 10? This song is so beautiful-the lyrics are simple but gorgeous and mean so much. It's also such an amazing song to harmonize to while you fall asleep

My absolute favorite. Gives me chills every time

Can't believe this isn't top 10! My favorite of hers

14 Once Upon Another Time

The eponymous track from her latest EP, it distills the poetic beauty of Sara's music to create something truly inspiring and touching.

Gives me shivers every time I listen to it, suck a beautiful song with perfect harmonies!

Such a simple yet hauntingly beautiful melody. The lyrics are just as poignant, showing that Ms. Bareilles truly has a way of capturing pure and raw emotion in song like none other.

15 I Choose You

Ssra Bariellas has such amazing vocals that blow me away & not only that the lyrics are so heart felt in the way she sings them with so much emotional depth. Excellent job Sara. Another thing I love about her that I've noticed following her career she has the most genuine smile when she performs. I will follow your career straight to the top.

Such a cute, fun song with a catchy tune

This song is such a wonderful blend of upbeat and thoughtful and it's just beautiful

Good, emotional song!

17 Fairytale

A great song. If her new album will be as awesome as this it might be her best!

It should be first. I love this song so much. It's kinda sad, but it's great and I can't survive a day without listening to it

This song is simply beautiful. One of her best. Top 3

It was me.

19 Hold My Heart

I love to listen to this song. I can really feel the sadness and desperation that Sara expresses, but it inspires hope as well. I think it's something everyone can relate to at some point in their lives.

20 Sweet as Whole

Think this is another one of her sentimental ballad type songs? Give it a listen. You'll be in for a fun surprise! Only someone as charming as Sara could pull this off, but she does.

21 The River
22 1000 Times

This song is amazing, and captures the feeling of unrequited love perfectly.

I really don't get why this song is so underrated! Every time I find it in an awful spot among the lists! It's my favorite Sara song. - mood333

Really heart felt song.

Should be in top 10

23 Hercules

Interesting harmonies and layers, and also a very simple but cool piano part

Very nice beat and chorus.

24 Satellite Call

Quite different for Sarah - shows her diversity. Definitely a favourite

Pretty Little Liars brought me here! Her Voice is everything‚ô•

25 Between the Lines

The lyrics to this song are just so genius. So awesome. Awesome rhythm. Amazing vocals. Love it

Really! This one should be the first

Such an incredible, and often overlooked, song

26 Vegas

It's a very chill song and it has that jazzy and '80s feel

Under-rated yet the best song from Sara Bareilles~!

27 Bluebird

Have no idea why this isn't number one! This song is so beautiful and relatable... There's so much raw emotion, it's gorgeous.

I am so surprised at how low this is! When I first heard this song I thought: What an absolute masterpiece. One of the best songs I have heard from her.

My favourite song right now from the one and only Sara. It's just so beautiful how she sings and the emotions pouring into it just makes shivers go down my spine. Often sing this to myself and try to imitate all her emotions! C:

28 Love on the Rocks

I don't understand how this isn't even included in the choices.. Or haven't you guys listened to it yet? Best song of sara ever.

29 Send Me the Moon
30 Little Black Dress
31 Lie to Me

This is such a cool sounding song. It keeps a good balance between the catchy pop Sara puts out on the radio and the poems made song that only her truest fans appreciate.

32 Machine Gun

I love it! Its so great and I love what she says in the song... I love how sweet it sounds even though what shes really saying underneath is forget you (saying this the nice way) . :D

One of my favorites!

love it

33 Bright Lights and Cityscapes

This song is so beautifully performed. The piano compliments the emotion-packed lyrics so greatly as well as matching Sara's haunting voice. Truly a song for the ages.

One of the biggest problems I've noticed with sad love songs (Someone Like You especially) is when the artist comes across as a stalker. Sara Bareilles wins 100%, being sad without being clingy.

While not one of her more well-known songs, this one is amazing. Sad and slow, she sings about loss without seeming creepy.

I LOVE this song. It's beautiful, heartfelt, and I can relate to it so well. Not my favorite song by her, but probably the best.

34 Beautiful Girl

I love this song. It's uplifting and a beautiful pep talk to girls assaulted by peer pressure and our body-image-obsessed world.

35 Come Round Soon
36 Basket Case
37 Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

The simple dissonant first verse is haunting, and then kicks into the more traditional song. Sara's voice is just beautiful

It's a 10 compared to others doing it!

38 Only Shadows

I love it its so pretty wish it was on her new album... I love what shes saying in it and the piano part is just incredible..

39 December
40 Stay
41 Morningside

Why is this not here yet? This song is fantastic. So jazz, much song. 10/10
