Best The Stone Roses Songs

The Top Ten

1 I Am the Resurrection

Definitely. Breaking into heaven should be number two though.

Sally cinnamon is undoubtedly the best stone roses song but of course I love most of them. I think mersey paradise should be higher in the list

Best Stone Roses song by far. One of the best in the world in fact. The lyrics are unbelievable as well as the instruments. Ian Browns vocals are strong and empowering. Those last lines just make you feel so powerful and euphoric. And no other band could pull off a 5 minute ending like that! Overall just an amazing and powerful song- non other like it in the world.

Love the one second stop before it carries on - jmepa1234

2 I Wanna Be Adored

It gradually picks up throughout the song, but maintains very calm and soothing

This song got me hooked! Their songs have great melody! M/

Such a trippy song get high and listen to this song

Just art...How can you describe art like this.

3 Waterfall

Absolutely the best.

Love at first listening! And still, decades later, "Waterfall" never fails to pick me up when I'm down.

Painfully easy to listen to, really treat to the senses- Jesus I sound dumb rn

Beautiful, relaxing, and great melody. Love it!

4 Fools Gold

Pure class

Definitely Their Best Song. Best Lyrics And Music

Best song by far.

5 Made of Stone

Amazing song and lyrics

Perfection - marazico

As soon as you reach the chorus of the song, you will realise you are listening to an anthem. One of the best songs of that generation.

The best stone roses song, chilling lyrics, unforgettable guitar riff and fantastic instrumental.

6 She Bangs the Drums

I can't see her here she co-o-omes,She bangs the Dru-u-u-u-um!

7 Sally Cinnamon

I am a HUGE stone roses fan. The debut album is one of the best I've ever heard, a good follow up album and excellent B-sides. It is so tough to decide, I love every song on their debut album, the second coming also has some great songs and other excellent B-sides but this is the best. Such fantastic lyrics, rhythm, so easily to sing along to, a fantastic song.

8 Elephant Stone

The first Stone Roses song I bought on cassette back in the day and still my favourite

9 This Is the One

Best song ever by the roses, quintessential roses song in my opinion as it represent everything they are which is a beautiful and melodic guitar player who can create darker undertones if he wants (breaking into heaven, love spreads etc). Reni is the pounding heartbeat of the roses sound which pulses throughout the song. Great singer who is perfect for the song effortless and arrogant at the same time, The bass lines are simple and beautiful however in simplicity there is truth. Ian browns lyrics are a work of art and that is an understatement, for those who insult Ian Brown for his singing for not being technically great, that is like insulting an amazing author for his handwriting and if you say he is a singer you are not grasping on what the roses are as a band and their beauty and message.

Smooth yet powerful, so powerful!

10 Love Spreads

The greatest comeback single of all time

Monster riff. D min never sounded so good,

The Contenders
