4 She Wolf

This song is my favorite, I really love the melody the lyrics and also the video.. I like the way she moves... She is absolutely fantastic and awesome...

It sounds so good. It sounds like if she meant everything she says in the song. Love it! The beginning makes you want to dance and you just cannot stop!

Just amazing! The electro and disco themed beats and Shakira's amazing vocal ability are just amazing and match the song perfectly! Makes you feel like dancing as soon as it starts and has that fun feel to it!

Simply wonderful. You should see some of the AMVs for it, especially the PMVs.

6 Loca

Not only is it a fantastic song, but the music video is amazing! Shakira is a genius. She's pretty, energetic and gorgeous. Loca makes me want to dance! She has the most amazing songs and the most amazing voice. Keep it up Shakira!

Although most people would say that hips don't lie is shakira's best song an is her most popular one I think that Loca beats all of her other songs by miles, the beat makes you shake it without realizing it and you feel happy just listening to the song. That is what music is all about!

This has become my official workout song. It's so fun to dance and move to, I can't help but want to get in shape!

Love this song! It has a amazing beat! 😃I hope Loca will make number 1! ☝

Amazing song! Just love it!

This should be in the top ten

8 Illegal

I'm a rock n roll, punk, metal loving girl, but when I first heard this on the radio, I was completely in love and next time I was on a computer, I typed in part of the lyrics to find out what song it was. "You said you'd love me until you die, but as far as I know you're still alive". Not a lot of people can't relate to that. Not to mention her voice, it's such a nice change from all the standard female voices in the mainstream music culture these days. This certainly deserve first place!

And that's the power of Shakira. She can lure anybody from any crowd with her music. I love this song too and I'm a guy but I don't care, I sing these lyrics proudly. - theOpinionatedOne

Very powerful and personal track. Shakira is real genius. Her lyrics is impressive as always. "Illegal" is definitely one of her greatest songs - Irina2932

This one is better than Loca and even She Wolf. The chorus starts so beautifully and the lyrics is so touching. Put this song on repeat and just groove through the jazz.

First time to listen but, it really takes you in.

12 Ojos Asi

This is how the list should look in the top 10!
1. Hips Don't Lie
2. Whenever Wherever
3. Eyes Like Yours (Ojos Asi)
4. Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)
5. Don't Bother
6. I Am Here
7. Gypsy
8. She Wolf
9. Did It Again
10. Objection

This list is absolutely pointless without "Ojos Asi" being in the Top 3.

Ojos asi definitely has to be in the top 3, its sexy, and the beat is just amazing!

Ojos Asi will always be THE song that represents Shakira. This is THE song that shows her talent, her voice, her dancing skills. This song was released 20 years ago, and I think it's still her best song!

13 Objection (Tango)

I love that song I even know *ALL THE WORDS*!

Best Shakira song EVERR. It should definitely be in the top 4 or something because it's just amazing 3 The music at the beginning makes me want to grab someone and tango!

- Alana

Because this is my favourite

Great song, Shakira is so talented! The tune is awesome and unique, and the music video is amazing!

14 La Tortura

I love this song! Shakira exept for looking hot in the video also sounds hot when you hear her. And Alessandro is fantastic too.

This is a great song.. It makes you wants to dance and I don't know any Spanish but this song made me want to learn some.. Thanks Shakira for being such a great singer and dancer.

I have no clue what she's saying literally because I am not a Spanish speaker, however this song has so much emotion and everything from her and Alejandro's vocals, to the instrumentation is flawless. I feel like even though I don't know the words, I still know what the song is about because I can feel it through the music. Beautiful art! And seldom do non-American songs break down the language barrier that exists in American media and reach the American audience- this song shatters it and captivates me!... Plus you can't help but groove to it- and the video is INSANEE! Check it out!

Number one for me!

15 Hay Amores

¡Ay Dios mio! This is my 2nd favorite song of hers. Why the hell is it ranked 57? The lyrics, mind you I don't exactly know what they mean, but the delivery Shakira gives is haunting and highly seductive. The Latin melody is equally melancholy and gives me chills every time I hear Shaki's voice moaning the lyrics with her gorgeous thick vibrato. "Hay Amores" to me is easily her best Spanish song ever and unfortunately very few people know about this gem, because it only appears on a soundtrack, and her own EP of the three songs she contributed to that soundtrack. More Shaki fans need to be aware of this golden great.

16 Rabiosa

I can't believe it is placed at 20... This song is amazing... I can't help but dance to this song... My body starts moving to the song automatically ;) love this song and love shakira

This song should be placed at top 3... can't understand why it's not even inside top 10... It will make you dance for sure... Great song... Just love it

One of those tracks which you'd love 2 hear... Music is great... Can't believe it's at 15...

Whaaat! 16 really? It should be on top 5...damn shakira looks smokin hot..and the beat is awesome...

17 Don't Bother

My number one fave Shakira song! It's close because there are so many great ones, but this one just reaches into my soul and pulls out emotions I didn't even know I had...

This song literally pulls my soul out of my body. It's such a good song with these lyrics that are understandable. It's one of the greatest break up songs ever and the best shakira song ever

I love shakira's all song but most I like this song.

Best break up song EVER!

18 Dare (La La La)

What a beautiful song

19 Las de la Intuicion

It is really very awesome song... I even like its English version... It is mesmerising song and one of the shakiras best... It at least deserves to be in top 20... Listen it and please do vote

Great, fun song. Even Taylor Swift fell in love with this song.

I love this song! Especially with Daniel Cloud and Kid Cudi in the music video!

And you can't forget the video to it!

22 Men in This Town

This song is definitely one of her best songs! It's so catchy, fantastic and the lyrics are just perfect! I love that at the end she sings a couple of lines in Spanish. So sad this wasn't a single, it would have been her next #1 on USA!

Such an underrated song! So good!

One of her best songs, but sadly unknown and under-appreciated, with the Electropop and lyrics that tell a story.


23 Antes De Las Seis

Best Spanish song ever

24 Mon Amour

Perfect song... You have to listen it if you like Rock And Roll And Shakira's accent when she speaks French!

Woow! Only 30th? You have to listen this song if you like Rock And Roll, and Shakira's accent when she sings in French!

25 Addicted to You

So catchy... One of her best song! I'm addicted to this song!

When the song addicted to you by avicii came out, the only think I thought about was shakira

Seriously? This is the only worst song of Shakira... She's a great singer but this is the only song that is her worst.

This should be at least number two, addicted to you is my favorite song by shakira

27 Try Everything

This song is good

I love this you shakira

I like it because it tells a good message to kids.

I like Zootopia and this song, I don't really like this song but it expresses her voice really good and it tells a good message to kids. Come on, not 50th place.

28 Antologia

This song gets to the core to the essence of Shakira's artistic prowess. Written at seventeen when she was in love, it reveals her poetic skill at the zenith of her craft. This song is not only her best song, it is one of the best love songs in any language, ever written.

this song is my fsvourite song

This one should be number one! Beautiful lyrics and wonderful music, always makes me cry

Best songs came from dark haired Shakira.

44 Tu

I don't believe this song is at number 80! I mean, hasn't anyone truly appreciated the mellifluous beauty of this classic song? It has so much feeling, so much raw, pure emotion. Simple, yet heart touching music. Also, the MTV unplugged version is perfect. Shakira herself cried at the end of the song.
This song deserves a place at least in the top 20.

45 Te Dejo Madrid

I love this song. Its catchy and the lyrics are meaningfull!

46 Despedida

This is the best song from Shakira when you consider vocals, instrumentals, emotions and lyrics. It has a great acoustic vibe, and her songs shine the most in acoustic bits.

This song is amazing. Why 43? despedida deserves more than 43. anyone know this song but I love it because her voice is so stunning...

Wonderful song where she shows all the power of her voice.

Wonderful, she should make more of this

I fell in love with this song because it has this different taste, I just like it

I like the disco vibe of it. Real disco with a guitar for lead and electronic garnishment around that. - theOpinionatedOne
