Top Ten Best Stereophonics Songs


The Top Ten

1 Dakota

Dakota is a brilliant song, the type of perfect hit that any band can write once in a decade. I'd be even brave to say, this song is one of the best songs ever!

Just amazing, puts me back in a brilliant mood even after a really bad or stressful day! Never gets all time favourite (which is never easy to choose from from these guys).

Love this song, it's got the lot for me - earthy with passion and energy. I too wished I'd listened to it watching Wales win the 2011/12 Grand Slam! Good for gym too.

This is a amazing song, I don't know how I could never heard it before, this is one of the best songs I ever heard, amazing...

2 Maybe Tomorrow

The movie Crash made this song popular.. At least I think so.. I got it right after I saw the movie... I think that it should be upper in the list.. definitely. It's one of their best songs.

This song holds all of the characteristics that allow it to stand out as one of the best songs ever. The meaning of the lyrics, guitar playing, tune, and overall quality is just amazing.
Also, it's something that almost every person that hears it can relate to at some point in their life.

Very powerful song, his voice really stands out in this one, definitely should be number one.

Pure class

3 Local Boy in the Photograph

I think this is the best song from the phonics, it gets everyone singing along...

Not only my favourite phonics song, but my favourite song ever! Great lyrics, which hold unbelievable memories from most certainly the greatest album ever! Also a great atmophere when this song is played live.

Definitely one of the best Phonics songs lyrically. Love this and the entire album

He'll always be 23

5 The Bartender and the Thief
6 More Life In a Tramps Vest
7 Handbags and Gladrags

Instant classic! Those that don't like this song don't appreciate good music.. This song was redone - yes however it was redone with so much class and style it outdid the original and its artists. It was so good you might even think that its a young and more polished Rod Stewart singing this

I'm an old fart at 68, but this version of the Rod Stewart classic has a better arrangement and Kelly's performance is equal to if not better than Rod's. I'm seeing them soon in Cardiff and hope they include this.

Kelly's voice is just amazing. I can feel this song a lot better than when it was sung by Rod Stewart.

Their most beautiful ballad!

8 Graffiti on the Train

I instantly fell in love with that song and the band when I heard this song for the first time live. It is so powerful that I just can't stop listening to it...

Tragic beauty in lyrics and Kelly's voice. Great song.

It's unbelievably powerful and so beautiful.

Should be at 1

My favourite song from one of my favourite albums of all times.

I'm a straight male, but I find Kelly's voice sexy as hell

Put simply, it's the best song I've heard from them period.

10 Traffic

An absolute classic, list to one of the live performances and the crowd getting behind the band

I saw them live and it was so simple and beautiful, perfect end to the gig.

The lyrics to this song are so meaningful. Traffic has to be number 1

Beautifully constructed ballad!

The Contenders

11 Just Looking

This is my favourite song by Stereophonics, I don't know maybe it's because this is the first song I heard by them but I just LOVE it, and yes I think it should be higher on this list, ya know.

Great song - very surprised to not see it on this list. Lyrics relate to me very well (I think they do anyway: haven't checked for alternative meanings) and probably the majority of people.

Reminds me of when I first got into music aged about 12 and I loved this song. The little me had good taste. Traffic a very very close second. Dakota 3rd.

This is one of my favourite sad songs of all time :-D

12 Superman

This is a really catchy song. It has a different vibe from the rest of their songs and really stands out for me.
I Always hum to the tune.

13 Have a Nice Day

Its such an amazing, yet simple positive tune to which everyone can relate to!

Great song has a real summery feel to it love it..

14 Indian Summer

The lyrics is just mesmerizing. The tune is so catchy and an epic song for their new drummer to introduce himself to the Stereophonics fans. This song should definitely be in the top 3.

Best Song ever to play love it and I and 13 so its not old

It's so perfect, the lyrics, the rhythm, Kelly's voice and notes. I fell un love when I heard it

Gorgeous song!

15 Violins and Tambourines

Crazy build up. Amazing song!

This is brilliant!

I'm new to this band. I've heard all from 1st to here. this is the best one. shouldn't be 15th!

16 I Miss You Now
17 Looks Like Chaplin
18 Help Me (She's Out of Her Mind)

This song is brilliant! The guitar at the beginning shows how amazing Stereophonics are! Cannot believe that this song is not even in the top 5 let alone top 10.

19 Devil

Too good to be that low in the list

Awesome song very clever definitely in their top 5

23 Hurry Up & Wait

Favourite track of performance...

24 In a Moment

An Amazing Intro. The chorus wins it for me. An Excellent song if you're looking for some good Stereophonics songs. It has a soulful guitar solo that just adds to the mood of the song.

One of the most meaningful and deep songs ever written. Its is just a beautiful song, sad though.

One of their best songs. Lyrically and musically. Fantastic solo, atmospheric and dark.

Nice Song
This vocal is beautiful
