Top Ten Best Snow Patrol Songs

The Top Ten

1 Chasing Cars

such a sad but good song

This will always be my favorite song of snow patrol. I love, love, love it!

I remember hearing this song as I little kid (younger than 4), riding home. It took at about 10 years to finally find it, just when it meant the most to me - SirSheep

This song is incredible and is probably one of my ultimately favorite songs. For some reason it gives me nostalgia and makes me miss the good old times. Love it.

2 Run

Far better then chasing cars which is, in my opinion a very bland boring song that was hugely overplayed (hence why it gets to number 1- the average top 10 voter is ignorant of anything other then the most mass marketed songs by any bands or artist). Run is quite simply a master piece ans deserves a lot more praise then it gets

Think it has to be "Run", it's first Snow Patrol song I ever heard and can still reduce me to tears. Snow Patrol at their best. - AisPower

This is also my first Snow Patrol experience and when I first heard it, I sat back in my chair and listened to it...5 times. The last 3 minutes of the song has a euphoric quality that can't be matched with anything else I've ever heard. Between the instrumentation and the lyrics and overall structure to the song, it is a true masterpiece.

"To think I might not see those eyes
Makes it so hard not to cry
And as we say our long goodbye
I nearly do"

My girlfriend and I study in different cities. We see each other for only about 20 days in a calendar year. And every-time the time say goodbye comes, THIS is what happens.

3 Open Your Eyes

The Lyrics have so much meaning and the final minutes of the song are breath taking, an absolute masterpiece. I can not get enough of this song.

I always liked this song but now it has a very special place in my heart. I played this for a person for the first time on guitar. That was the last time I ever saw them before they were in a coffin. Whenever I hear this song I remember him

This song means so much to me as I was in a relationship with someone who just couldn't open their eyes to anything, me, what love was really all about, to his children's needs, to God,.. anything! I wanted to show him.. he just couldn't see. :( Beautiful song.

I really love this song! This is me and my little brother's favorite, he's 8 years old, and we sing this song together! This song is a real masterpeice! - Hidan_the_Jashinist34

4 Called Out in the Dark

Snow patrol at their best. The lyrics make you feel good, and the chorus is simply inspiring. This is the song to play if you want to feel empowered. And the different tempos its hits makes the song just like 4 seasons in one day - showcasing the spectrum of sound that snow patrol are capable of.

Song is a combination of 1960,70,80,90 and still in 2017 it rocks you, just start the song and your body automatically start dancing, nice song

This song is just great! It caught my attention right away, the video is amazing and very funny...

I love this song and also the music video, the whole arrangement of the song is just so smooth

5 What If This Storm Ends?

I love this song, the way it begins, it stops your heart in a second

The song is incredible and its background music awe-inspiring. The song may be long but it's worth listening to every second. I recommend everyone to give it a chance.

Okay, I voted for this entirely because The Lightning Strike is my all time favorite song (like all 16 minutes) the single version is awesome, no doubt, but for me its all or nothing.

Beautiful song, I always find myself stopping whatever I'm doing at the moment to listen to this. It starts out so clam, then gets better every second.

6 Just Say Yes

This song... Oh man... No words for it... Whenever I listen to it I feel like I'm letting go... I feel like dancing to it every time I hear this... I don't kno why but mu heart flies whenever I listen to this... Its just pure awesomeness!

A Mesmerizing song... It attracts me every time I listen it... Probably the best song of Snow Patrol... You guys are simply the best... It should be a lot more higher than 8...

Needs to be a lot higher - surprised Chocolate is not in the top 10

Haunting voice and music..love the snow patrol

7 New York

Just a brilliant song. It's about a lover calling to his other half who's left for New York. Gut wrenching yet beautiful. All he wants is her. The best song on Fallen Empires

"If you were here beside me instead of in New York"
One of the best song of the latest album Fallen Empires

It's absolutely the best song by Snow Patrol! So moving and so meaningful... One of the best songs about distance ever!
Snow Patrol do their best this way.

This is I the best song in my opinion this is the best song I have heard in my entire life this should be the best song out of snow patrol a top I hit New York come on you can do it

8 This Isn't Everything You Are

Easily the best song from this album in my opinion.

Everyone vote for it. NOW! VOTE FOR THE SEXIEST SONG OF ALL TIME! Honestly though, it's so beautiful and heartfelt. Chasing Cars is good, but this song has a change of pace that is just as beautiful.

This Should be in the top five!
One of my favorite songs of snow patrol with great lyrics and music and the music video goes perfectly with the song

This song touches the most intimate feelings in my soul... It has the power to make me fade into a puddle of tears

9 You Could Be Happy

It's the fear of not knowing how someone you care for deeply is feeling. Not knowing whether they're alive or dead. And if they are happy you're not the one making them happy. Someone else could have taken your place, but you won't know.

It broke my heart every time I listened to it, after a break up. It's got that bewitching introduction, for a start, the music box melody. Beautiful.
It's got such heart-rending lyrics and it's sung in a way that you know this is a song from experience. Gorgeous.

Such a beautiful song, my go to song when I listen to Snow Patrol. It is even more amazing and heart breaking live.

This song is really underrated! I heard it first on the T.V. show Smallville & it immediately caught my attention. Such a beautiful melody & amazing lyrics. Should be way up on the list.

10 Set the Fire to the Third Bar

So heartbreakingly aching to listen to. I connect a lot to books and music and this is one of those songs I cried listening to. Like other reviewers have stated, it stands out from many slower rhythm snow patrols songs, due to the raw voice put into singing this song, and the delicate backdrop of piano. Very emotional, power and elicit.

Couldn't find Grazed Knees but the latter, the song and An Olive Grove are among Snow Patrols greatest songs. Loved Final Straw when I got it all those 4 years ago - it was the third album I got and wouldn't stop listening to it...

A great duet with Martha Wainwright This song is a slow burner it is the stand out track of the album. Went from least favorite to the best song. - InvisableSteve

Come on this is by-far the greatest song not only heartbreaking and emotional it makes you want to sing this song gives an emotional connection that many can relate to I think this should've been 1st

The Contenders

11 Spitting Games

Not my favorite, just voted it because it's so low - ZeroBlaster

What's Spitting Games doing down here? This is one of their best songs! Everyone vote for Spitting Games! - Rorywilbren

One of the best! 28th No Way

Seriously, why is Spitting Games so low? This is song is great, 3rd best on Final Straw (After Run and Chocolate) and one of personal favorites!

12 You're All I Have

It good

'I'm so clear now that you are all that I have' it's underrated to be ranked 6th. If you haven't heard it yet, you are missing something.

A gem of a song. Lyrically a piece of art. It is undoubtedly among my favorite.

Amazing, I knew straight away the first time I heard it, it would be my favorite.

13 How to Be Dead

This song is under rated. It should be way up top! - Bilal

Beautiful lyrics, soulful vocals and what a soothing composition. One of Snow Patrol's very best and very very low on this list unfortunately.

This had to on top; at least within 5; poorly rated

Oh please this has to be number 1

14 The Lightning Strike

This is 3 songs in one and it's amazing, part one is what if this storm ends, part two is sunlight through the flags, and part 3 is daybreak. Truly beautiful song.

Probably the best song I have ever heard. 16 minutes of brilliance. You've got to be patient but it's worth it.

This is amazing 3 songs in 1!

' amazing song! Totally in love with this song!

18 In the End

I've followed Snow Patrol since seeing Spitting Games on MTV many moons ago. A truly beautiful song. I get shivers when Gary sings the line "I've waited here for you forever".

Best drums and the guitar just kills everything... should be in top five

Should be on the top... -_-

This is literally the best

19 Signal Fire

Not just a song but it's what I feel about the girl I loved once. Heard this in Spiderman 3 and instantly fell in love with this. Sad we won't get to see more of that anymore. every time this song plays, I can imagine Peter Parker swinging off to the sunset with Mary Jane

It keeps the same flavor of Snow Patrol's work but adds enough of the new in terms of speed and feeling that this is easily one of their riskier and better songs.

This is snow patrols most underrated song. Amazing lyrics, awesome guitar work and a smooth finish that only snow patrol can deliver. "No I don't wana wait... Forever"

This song will really speak to you. This deserves to be at the top. Please. Just listen to it and you'll believe the same.

20 Chocolate

Best song. It has everything

Best song I've ever heard. the drums are incredible and lyrics are just genius. really recommend it

My absolute favorite Snow Patrol song. His voice, the instrumentals, the lyrics, the melody, literally everything is perfect and I'm surprised it's no in the top 10!

The idea that this song isn't in the top 10 is ludicrous. It's easily in their top 5. Not to say that the songs ahead of it aren't good, but this is just better.
