Best Songs From Franz Ferdinand


The Top Ten

1 Take Me Out Take Me Out

Enough said really. This song is too epic and the beat is unbelievably infectious.
Its also in The Rolling Stones top 500 songs of ALL TIME. Need I say any more.

This track is exactly where it should be! Nothing comes close. No You Girls should be 2nd though!

This is the unquestioned #1 for Franz Ferdinand. Epic beginning leads to a just as epic core. This is what makes indie... Well... Indie! Great stuff!

I maintain that this si the single greatest indie song ever - RecklessGreed

The 8 min version is simply magnificent the change from their indie-rock sound to progressive house beat is both effective and infectious

This song is amazing and I listened to it for literally seven hours straight. His voice sounds unique and amazing!

The Newcomers

? Ulysses Ulysses

Good music love the chorus

Its perfect! For me THE ONE

What?! Uysses just the 8th?! Ain't got no one ears?

? No You Girls No You Girls

Oh kiss me. Flick your cigarette and then kiss me. Kiss me where your eye won't meet me.

Addicting, sexy, and smart. Sounds dreamy right? I could literally create a whole dance routine with this song.

This song is hot and sexy, but with a dash of class and maturity. I say this was a great achievement. They managed to make it sexy, but in a very classy way.

Best franz Ferdinand song! Definitely first!

12 Stand on the Horizon Stand on the Horizon

Amazing transition from intro into the song. Gets you dancing. Great song overall.

13 You're the Reason I'm Leaving You're the Reason I'm Leaving

This is just the perfect mix of riffs.

14 40 Ft 40 Ft

This song is my all time favorite. I don't know why, just love their band and the quality of their music. Also, if you care I think the lyrics to this song are about Icarus and Daedalus.

Don't know why this isn't higher on the list, I would rank it equal to the likes of 'No you Girls' and 'Ulysses'. It certainly stands out to me as one of their better songs.
