Best Sonata Arctica Songs

The Top Ten

1 Full Moon

Amazing song with strong e remarkable riffs, solo and backing vocals. Also the lyrics are just perfect! This song is definitely the best from Sonata Arctica. I should say that this song should be elected as one of the top 100 heavy metal songs at least from I ever heard in my entire life!

That "runaway" part is just so stuck in my head and I can't help myself but shout it out loud.

I'm really trying to like this band, but this is the only song that I like. The rest are fillers.

Great story, pumps you up!

2 White Pearl, Black Oceans

An incredible narrative with an amazing feeling. Love it to the moon and death

While there are so many incredible Sonata Arctica songs, I am voting this one. It is a majestic masterpiece that takes you on an unforgettable journey.

One of the best songs in Power Metal History.. Like a song Mirror Mirror of @Blind Guardian!

Really, really beautiful tragic story, which almost makes me cry. The music also is perfect and lets to feel all the emotions of the main character.

3 The Cage

This song is just amazing, the first time I heard it, I was in tears because of how good it was, Sonata Arctica are the best band ever made

Best keyboard and rhythm work done by the band yet!
This guy is arguably the best keyboardist in the world!

4 My Selene

my personal favourite of this selection. love the melody, love the lyrics!
it's hard though to choose a favorite sonata song, 'cause there are so many great.

Very Beautiful Song, it should be at the top of the list... By I wonder where is " The Wind Beneath my wings" it is the best ever songs by Sonata Arctica, though it is copied from Bette Middler.

This should be much higher, at least higher than Full Moon and Replica.

The only sonata arctica song I like

5 Kingdom for a Heart

It's just incredible! the beggining riff is fabulous. Should be number 1

Best Sonata Song ever!

6 Victorias Secret

Easily my favourite song from Sonata Arctica. Pushes me up every time.

I' have the best!

My second favorite from them, my favorite being closer to an animal" most significantly, victorias secret’s verse is superbly magical and leaves the creative listener in a bubbly trance, me anyway. The chorus itself is likeable in that it is simple, yet as it hits you hard with the bone-tapping “And it’s not my secret! ” you are blown away by the sheer indications of what meaning of the song is possible... a meaning besides beauty. Yes, it is a beautiful song, because the hardest hitting songs are those that hit you hard effectively and in the right bodily and emotional locations. This one does just that. And besides beauty...this song achieves on my level because it is all-forgiving and has a spot for itself in innocence, and then it also somehow feasts on insurmountable drive and red, hot passionate fury, disguised as happy thoughts and happy things...

Really love this song

7 San Sebastian

Amazing lyric, amazing voice, amazing on everything. Sonata Arctica rules! This song is a must listen!

best

Awesome lyrics, perfect melody, everything! I really like and love so many Sonata Arctica songs (almost all of them! ), but still my vote goes to this wonderful piece. Shy means so much for me!

This should definitely be in Top three. It makes up my mood every time. Such a great song. 16th? You gotta be kidding me.

The song touch me in many many ways, but I'm shy can't you see? ;) <3 Love this song!

10 The Wolf and Raven

My first Sonata Artica song. Amazing video. Love the speed. Amazing song - Dvz

The first song that I hear from Sonata Arctica and the one that I keep listening besides they others amazing songs! Also, amazing video.

Intricate guitar work throughout the song. Amazing lyrical content which mirrors the Shakespearean classic, MacBeth. Plus the music video throws a curveball at you at the end of the song.

Just the best of this band

The Contenders

11 Don't Say a Word

This one is definitely my favorite song by sonata, and I've heard all of them. White pearl come in second though.

Definitely my favorite

Why this song wasn't here!
I really don't understand, this should be at least top ten!
It has a great and heavy riff and great lyrics, it's pure energy! It has an awesome solo too!
the rhythm constantly is changing and that make the song very dynamic and funny!

The best Sonata Arctica song

12 Paid in Full

The primary reason I think this is the number one song by Sonata Arctica is because of this : " My fault that you then turned another cheek, you mouth the words, you're not ready to speak, you're scared of me, although I never had a clue, that I've become so much stronger than you"

Amazing song that manages to be a perfect cross between power-metal and prog metal. It manages to make each chorus slightly different, but with the same amazingly catchy theme.

None of my 2 favorites are on the poll (In black and white, It won't fade) so I'll go with the 3rd. great chorus.

The piano is the best

13 False News Travels Fast

Absolutely love this song. Great solo, great rid, great lyrics. I've heard all of sonatas songs, and I can truly say that this one is amaong the very best. They should all be number one! Lmao

This song has some very brilliant modifications to the main melodies occurring here and there in the song, and it really serves to make this a compelling and addicting song. The vocal courses are awesome!

14 8th Commandment

My favorite song of their album ecliptica... Just epic

My favorite part : “And liars will always DIE! ” because he makes a growl in “die” and I just admire that especially in the end of a song" pure genius!

15 Black Sheep

This was my introduction song to this band, the very first that I've head it's been quite a while since that fateful day, yet I still deem this song my favorite and the best they ever had, it's been many years and I'm still not tired of it! Thank you so much!

wow solo's amazing, riff's amazing, letter amazing, long live to black sheep

Remarkable, to put it simple. Great riff, great solo, great work overall.

Listen for yourselves, it's worth it.

Lyrics, Riffs, Melody... Simply a perfect song.

16 Replica

The chords used are superior

Best sonata arctica song, I get goosebumps every time I hear it
.

It is a very good Sonata Arctica song, but Sonata is not as good as Mole G-Cow (the best band in the world obviously) I think every Sonata Arctica fan should try listening to Mole G-Cow, its incredible how good that band is

I'm A REPLICA I'm A REPLICAAA

17 Letter to Dana

So sad and emotional

How is this not in the top 5? Timeless song and should be higher up.

There are so many versions of this song and each one is amazing

The most beautiful song I've ever heard.

18 My Land

You never forget your first, and this song continues to blow me away

So many great SA songs... But this is my favorite!
Very strong and powerful, that's how a song should be!

It's the best song of Sonata Artica and the best song in the world.

Best song!
High notes, fast and strong!

19 The Misery

THE BEST BALLAD! My girl love it because of me. And I also love it. (AND HER! )

My favorite song ever! It's perfect, Sonata it's my favorite band because of this song.

This Song should be on the top... Very unique

Its simply the best

This song need to be higher!

21 Caleb

Definitely the best SA song, the story is magical, so is the music.

22 The Wolves Die Young

This song is awesome! I love the rhythm, the 2nd solo is perfect, and the chorus is just magical, should be in top 15.. At least.

Pretty nice song :D, love the intro

I don't know why this song is not in the top 5!

23 The End of This Chapter

Never heard a song that has brought to me so many emotions, matched with White pearl black oceans.

If you take out the weird beginning this is my favourite song of theirs.. but then again, weird stuff is what makes it SA hehe

A song about old love now regretfully left behind. "I tell you that past times won't die, I tell you that old lies are alive". Lines about despair and sorrow after a love that most likely went bad (Love due to expire too long time ago, kill me, please kill me before) with emotional piano tune and superb overall music. Must be in the top ten for sure!

I listen to this song everyday and still never get enough of it. One of the greatest for sure.

24 Last Drop Falls

It's so strange that no one vote for this song. I think in this song Toni sing fantastic and the lyrics is straight. For me This song is one good song from Sonata. I wonder why this sing is underrated because until now the lyrics still ringed in my ear

Strange... This great song is underrated... Honestly the lyrics of this song and the voice of the vocalist is ringed in my ears until now...

The best song but underrated! Seems like crying when this song was first played to me by my friend! Then I banged this song whole DAY

This should be much higher. Just a beautiful medley, and such a powerful song. I'll go back to this one over the rest any day.

25 Blank File

Great fast song!

26 Flag in the Ground

Fantastic instrumentals throughout, lyrics are close to perfection!

Their best song after Fullmoon.

27 Mary-Lou

God, I can't believe this is not number 1. I'm a die hard fan of SA and this song is their best ever... Give it a shot

This song is great, but the acoustic version performed live at Finland is much better. - Penguincamp

Awesome song, first one I listened from Sonata Arctica and still my favourite.

28 Peacemaker
29 Shamandalie

This list is full of crap this should be in top 5

GUYS, how can this not be on the list at all? Before I came here I expected it to be top 5 at LEAST! Awesome ballad in my eyes! :D

Awesome ballad, it's absolutely incredible, with a lot of power.

I've registered only to vote in THIS SONG... ITS AMAZING! - kuroivenom

30 Power of One

Very much like this epic sounding track!

Haven't listened much to SA, but this one sticks out for me, at least thus far!

Amazing riffs, amazing harmony, beautiful message on the lyrics... Just perfect

Come on. This IS a top ten song.

That's my choice.. So many good songs!

31 The Boy Who Wanted to Be a Real Puppet

World's greatest solo.

32 It Won't Fade

This should be number 1

One of the bests Sonata Arctica songs. The vocals are epic! - OstrichGuitar

33 Broken

Special and mysterious song which I find Sonata Arctica's best one. It's so deep and it's sound is incomparable to any other song I've ever heard. What I mean, this song is only of its kind. Simply excellent.

This is a very very sad song, probably lessens some burdens of sorrow on my head too... I love this song... Wow!

34 Wildfire

Well, it's is really hard to chose only one song, just because all the songs they've wrote from Ecliptica 'till Unia should be in the first place of the list. I'll go with Wildfire. I've saw the progress they've made since the first album, and I understood that they wanted to be more complex than just a gallop metal (best gallop metal ever), and great ballads. This is the top of Tony's work. It's almost unbelievable, how they've kept the balance between the old great europower and the brand new progressivity (brand new from them in 2004). The lyrics, the story they tell is just great. The music... It's like you can feel the fire, moving from one house to another. It's like the wildfire itself, once more calmed, once wild, like an animal. This is the old and the new Sonata in one song (one album? ), which every Sonata fan should listen at least once in their life.

Basically, two epic songs. The lyrics are simply fascinating. The power of nature will show us that humanity made ​​many mistakes over-exploit our resources to one day, and Sonata Arctica show their respects.

Epicness song I've ever heard.

35 No Dream Can Heal a Broken Heart

Vocals on the second verse make this for me, layering Tony's voice gave it a hell of a punch.

Johanna is absolutely great here.great song.

36 The Last Amazing Grays

How come this song is in 43?!

37 The Gun
38 Deathaura

I'm genuinely surprised that I had to add this song to the list myself, it's absolutely astonishing, I love everything about this song, it is just beautiful

This song is so interesting and has memorable sections. It's clearly up there with White Pearl, Black Oceans as one of Tony's greatest lyrical works!

Simply breathtaking. Makes me speechless every time I hear it.

A masterpiece.

39 UnOpened

Top ten song.

Seriously 21?!?! This was the very first song I heard from Sonata Arctica, My personal favourite!

I think It's the best because of the opening, which sounds, not Renasonic, but noble. And, "Another misspelled rythe written in the Book of Time." And, "How could I trust in someone of your kind?! " and finally, "And I got today, another letter in the mail! I can't read it here, not today! And the years go by, unopened letter meets my eyes. Old and wiser, but I'm still scared! "

I think it should be in the top ten
If you hear hiroshima concert you�'ll be agree with me

40 In Black & White
41 The Vice
42 Gravenimage

I love this, it's an immersing song, and musical quality is higher than average. I can't understand why is so low, Toni sings beautifully, and the uprising midway in the song is awesome too.

43 Destruction Preventer

Surprised this song is rated as low as it is. Fantastic song!

The most epic song of all time!

Ome of the greatest songs ever.
And just maybe my favorite sonata song.

44 In the Dark
45 Larger Than Life
46 Ain't Your Fairytale

Why is this in 49? This is one of the bests!

This song is in my top 3. Lots of contrast with all the sections in the song and it's all fused together seamlessly.

My favorite song by Sonata Arctica!

An amazing song. I'm honestly surprised it is this high on the list.

47 Juliet

Great, emotional vocals and breathtakingly well composed instrumental. Definitely one of the best songs by Sonata Arctica.

48 Revontulet

This band is not that good for me but that song is really different...

49 Draw Me

Deeply emotional, beautiful and real! Not the most complex song Sonata has written but it encompasses Toni's true emotion true his music. It may not be the Top song but merits a much much higher spot on this list.

One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard, the melody isn't as complex as some of the other songs. But it's simplistic nature, when coupled with Tony's incredible voice makes it beautiful.

This song is so beautiful, the lyrics have such emotion and beauty behind them.
in I originally voted for White Pearl Black Oceans, but I then noticed an option to add an item.

This one should be on top 10
