Top 10 Best Songs by Bloc Party

The Top Ten

1 Helicopter

The best guitar riff Bloc Party have ever written along with the weirdest lyrics to go along with it. Great song, number 1 easily. Banquet 2nd.

fantastic song and really kickass drummin. wow

This is their best song but "The Prayer" should be 2nd on this list not 7th!

2 Banquet

This song is just the meaning of cool, the song builds and builds and leaves with you with the same great lasting impression even if your hearing it for the hundredth time.

I could hear it a thousand time and still shaking my head

top banger

Always catchy, I feel like I can gear It for years and still enjoy.

3 This Modern Love

I heard this song in How I Met Your Mother season1 and the episode was "come on". This song enters when Ted makes it rain and goes out for Robin and both end up together and then it also plays when it is shown at the end of the episode where we see that Lily called of the wedding and there was a depressed Marshall sitting. Great song drumming was great and the bass and guitar were also spectacular.

I heard it first on How I Met Your Mother and I have been hooked ever since. Everything about this song is perfect, the guitar riffs, the drums and finally the message this song conveys to the listeners. It should be number 1 without a doubt

The last 2 minutes of the song made me cry the first few times I heard them. Even today they give me goosebumps every time. Simply amazing.

Heard this on How I Met Your Mother and loved it. The chorus gives me chills every single time without fail. Possibly the best song by Bloc Party.

4 Blue Light

This song is interesting how its slow in parts and fast in others but on the whole is a very relaxing song and very clear lyrics, and a memorable melody.

5 Hunting for Witches

Again another song like the prayer but In my opinion I think they managed to make this song raw but also keep that guitar sound from many tracks off of silent alarm.

I don't know why is it at 6th position doubtless one of their best songs, should be between the first three if ain't the best at least the second best of em

This song is so epic

Although Weekend in the City wasnt too good compared to silent alarm, its still a damn good song and pretty catchy.

6 Like Eating Glass

Crazy guitar effects, drumming insanity, and perfection of bass timing. All kept in a subtle tone. This song is 1 on my list of songs of all time.

Listened to this on repeat for 2 hours during a commute from London to Wales. Still haven't grown tired. Silent alarm is a fantastic album.

Simply amazing it doesn't get any better than this bloc party is one of the few groups today that could actually jam out

I've listened to this song continuously, like about 100 times in a row - I'm not even joking I need help please help please

7 Signs

This is their best song.
So Here We Are is also really good.

8 Kreuzberg

Another one like Sunday. The melody just gets under your skin and makes you feel nostalgic for something you can't quite make out

Such a chilled and relaxed song, emotional to. Simply perfect

Beauty in its true form

Pure emotion...

9 We are Not Good People

Love it... bangin bass line

10 Sunday

This song really makes you feel things. The melody gives such a somber yet good feeling

The Contenders

12 Flux

I love how flux is an interesting take at a slight variation on their tunes by somewhat mixing dance and indie, Also great lyrics in the chorus and fun music video.

13 Octopus

Love the breathing/panting at the start. The background frantic riff going on throughout the song is a plus.

It's damn shame that it ranks 28. Should be at least top ten.

14 Waiting for the 7:18

My most beloved song-someone said once that Kele is one of the most outstanding poets of our century-absolutely true for me. Every line of this song means a lot, most of all I like "If I could do it again, I'd make more mistakes, I'd climb more trees, I'd eat and pick more wild blackberries". Pure masterpiece.. Magical music completes this song and make it perfect. Wish I could hear it live someday.

15 I Still Remember

Simply because the riff that plays at the start stays true throughout the whole song, and probably has the most memorable chorus out of them all.

16 The Prayer

I think bloc party really showed their raw creative side with this song but still kept true to their roots and seamlessly made the whole song flow.

The first song from Bloc Party that I heard. It was in NHL 2K8.

Such an underrated song, the chorus is fantastic. So is the intro.

12th? Absolutely unacceptable

17 Two More Years

Again another one of bloc party's that starts great and retains that greatness throughout. Also the best intro to a song ever.

Awesome song, and so is the remix version.

One of the best 5 of them - CristhianR

18 Skeleton

Represents the soul of Bloc Party: nice short riffs, dance, power song.
