Best Within Temptation Songs

The Top Ten

Angels Angels Cover Art

It's a wonderful song. This was the second song from Within Temptation that I heard and ever since, I haven't been able to get enough of the band. It definitely means a lot to me. Sharon's vocals are wonderful as usual and I really, really wish I could sing like her in this song...

This song is haunting! Do NOT BASE IT ON THE PREVIEW ON ITUNES! I love it to bits!. It was the song that drew me to Within Temptation. Really worth buying listening to every day!

The first song I listen to within temptation and the best.. This haunting song I best and second would be ice queen... Lyrics is so awesome... This song totally rocks

One of the first Within Temmptation songs I've heard and I completely fell head over heels with it. I can really connect to the lyrics as if Within Temptation is telling my own story...

Memories Memories Cover Art

This is the first song I ever heard by Within Temptation and ever since, I've been hooked! It's lyrics were so spectacular... it's different from the other songs of today. The lyrics actually mean something and really make you think. I love this song to bits and will never forget this song. It's really changed my life... now I have Within Temptation as part of my life and suddenly my life has become better... it's funny how just one song can do that to you.

Beautiful lyrics and totally amazing song! The music video is even better, which really haunts you and make you feel for the song. Many different experiences can be tied to this song. Indeed in life we have too many beautiful memories to cherish, and this song speaks about how they could be brought back, even if they are only in your mind.

I was first introduced with Shot in the dark but Memories made me fall in love..Angels was a masterpiece but I think memories is slightly better.

Such a beautiful song I could listen to it over and over a billion times. I almost have! This song came on my Pandora where I wanted to listen to it again so I looked it up and found within temptation yay!

The Howling The Howling Cover Art

Initially, this wasn't my favorite by them... but now it's at he top of my list. Sharon's vocals are really powerful in this one and I will never forget it. It definitely deserves its place.

Excellent song - lovers of Evanescence will enjoy this masterpiece as it will feel a little familiar, the rugged vocals and that gothic symphonic rock feel.

I want the within temptation win the first place because their song are great and I can feel the message of every songs, I love you so much sarah

This is the song that really got me into this. This song totally deserves it spot at first place. It's so amazing.

Iron Iron Cover Art

Iron is the most shining pearl on the beautiful necklace of gothic rock & metal. this song has everything and though there are other WT songs with personal meaning for me, this one is artistically the best!

Iron is the best track on the unforgiving it is the best within temptation song hands down ( other than the howling and ice queen. In a word EPIC!

Love this song - it's a much more rockier anthem with some great riffs and an interlude to die for. One of the few true epic rock songs of WT you can blast out in your car!

Watch the video of this song put to the movie Wonder Woman. Incredible!

Frozen Frozen Cover Art

The reason why I find this song so very tragic and heartbreaking is because it FINALLY lets me think about of Octavius, standing in front of Jedediah's gravesite, letting a lot of tears fall down his face, and he says to his now dead friend, as he is crying very hard,

"I love you, Jedediah. And, I'll miss you so much! "

No other song could let me imagine that, but only this song did, because of the dark and cold melody.


This is quite underrated... Should be on of the top ten or at least top 12... I love the song and the video, I love the lyrics too but most of all I LOVE Sharon's voice... The only within temptation song which I have memorized... Within temptation is one of my favorite bands!

I think this should be higher than top 6. Besides the catchy tune, Sharon's wonderful voice, this song has a very deep meaning. It tells the story of the pain of sacrificing and not telling the reason why you did it for someone.

I love the way she expresses the sorrow in the song! I love the song, the lyrics and mostly I love sheron's voice! I don't get how this song is not number one!

Shot in the Dark Shot in the Dark Cover Art

Definitely better than Memories... Or as good as Angels... Should be in the top 3... Wonder if its me who is mad or is it the people having lost their touch on music laugh out loud

The greatest song I ever heard deserves to be the first I'll definitely break the computer if it not comes first

Can't believe within temptation without Sharon,
Even nobody can believe this group without "shot in the dark"... its really summit

This is the first song I heard by this artist and is still my favorite. It should be in the top!

Let Us Burn Let Us Burn Cover Art

It's amazing!

Jillian (I'd Give My Heart) Jillian (I'd Give My Heart) Cover Art

This is the song I stumbled upon when I was shuffling through the track listing of all WT albums. The name caught my interest so decided to give it a go. And boy does it sound so wonderful. I fell for it from the very intro itself. And the whole song is just extravagant. This deserves to be on the top 20 or 10 at least.

I love this song so much! Especially the bridge and that mindschocking climax! Whoever Jillian is I love you for inspiring this song!

Chorus is awesome. Other than that, it's an average song. Still beats other songs from the same artist.

I totally love this song. Her voice is perfect!

What Have You Done

That's the song that would normally attract someone to Within Temptation. At least that's what I think, IMO. Has everything you're looking for in a single song.


It's a combination of lyrics and melody.
This is like the perfect song of Within Temptation
When you listen to it, you just can't get enough of it.

The ultimate combination of vocals and melody along with the traditional metal loud volume of Keith makes the best duet

Hand of Sorrow Hand of Sorrow Cover Art

I won't comment how amazing sharon sound. I just want people know how the piano intro make my your soul go to sorrow, the violin, the guitar so amazing... Send me to another world with a temptation in my mind. Why it's here? It must be the very best of WT. It's number ONE! It's the price of a masterpiece

I can't believe this masterpiece is only in #10! I've always loved WT and before I heard this song, I also thought Angels is the best song then memories, and frozen... then, I got to listen to THIS and I was like hell no this song is a MASTERPIECE!

Sharon's vocals cast a striking harmony to the orchestral and electric elements on the song. The lyrics are just as vibrant, and coupled with her angelic voice, makes the song damn near perfect!

A song about FitzChivalry Farseer, for all you Robin Hobb fans. If you've read the book, you understand truly the pain, sorrow and beauty that make this song.
The bridge where Sharon is with the piano ("Please forgive me for the sorrow") etc is enough to bring tears to the eyes. Amazing song.

The Contenders

Fire and Ice Fire and Ice Cover Art

The contrast brought about by the lyrics emphasizes the struggle of light and darkness conveyed in the song. Her voice brings real pain that really resonates with the listener.

Why is this song so far down the list? It's gorgeous, had it stuck in my head for the last 2 weeks!

Slow yet a beautiful song conveying depth

Faster Faster Cover Art

This song is awesome and is my favorite, I love the lyrics and all the energy of them, I also love her voice

The best composition, best lyrics, so eventually the best song... Simply love it

Best motivation song ever

Killer on the highway! Best track fr long drives

All I Need All I Need Cover Art

Ok, I admitted, I have heard this song for the first on The Vampire Diaries, but it was also the first song from a T.V. show I have ever searched because it is such a masterpiece. And because of it, I started listening to WT, and look at me now! I have been fan of them for almost 4 years and I am not planning on stopping! And every song they have it is brilliant and I love it.
I have All I Need as my alarm song, and it is the best part of the day, being woken up by WT...

It's a very beautiful song. I first heard it on the vampire diaries. Elena and Damon looked so good together. I think that this song was written just for them. Any other song wouldn't have complemented their dance. It's a very emotional song. It touched my very soul when I first heard it. It deserves number 1 spot on this list or at least top 3.

Deals with a struggling relationship, trying to make things work. that's what I am having right now, and I could listen to this song for hours.

This song also was played for the Vampire Diaries.

I adore this song, it's a great love declaration song, if you don't know how to say "i love and need you' to the one you love, just listen to that song and you'll be inspired.

Amazing symphonic masterpiece! Stand My Ground and Somewhere are my next favorites. I really love WT, their music and especially their lyrics, they are just deep and emotional.

I don't really know why, but this song has attracted me from the beginning. I've loved it since I first heard it. Something about the lyrics and the symphonic quality is just phenomenal.

The first of their songs I've ever heard... And its actually still my favorite! A GREAT song. I've heard all of their songs and this one just draws me toward it

Say My Name Say My Name Cover Art

Fantastic song, sung with such passion and emotion, I get goose-bumps!

My fave song

Great song

This song is pure heart-wrench and magnificent in its delivery, my fave along with Memories 😃

Ice Queen Ice Queen Cover Art

This must be the best and most famous song, and her voice is fair like an angel's. I love everything about this song; it's mood that is pure and powerful, her perfect pitch, the instrumental pieces - everything that makes one feel completely aligned with Mother Earth. Makes me want to stumble out in the woods and sing the song on top of my lungs. When I do listen to Ice Queen I listen to it over and over. And EACH time; the music and her voice send CHILLS right down my spine.

This was their break through song, and although there have been some better songs perhaps and many changes in their genre, this for me is a very special song. :)
(It's also fun trying to sing it as a guy, as I know all of the words. )

This song got me into Within Temptation. It's so beautiful and perfectly balances rock with some nice slow parts. Deserves to be higher!

I love her voice in this song.. Reminds me of the woods.. It doesn't deserve this position.. Should have been at a higher place!

Lost Lost Cover Art

I loved Within temptation from this song. It is absolutely amazing. The lyrics, the solo, her tone.. Everything in this song is just beautiful. This song should really get higher votes and be in the top ten!

How is this song not No. 1?! It's so meaningful, her voice is beautiful, the music and tune is lovely.. Must listen with Lyrics!

Totally my favorite song by them, It MUST be on number 1.

Should be the second after memories

In the Middle of the Night In the Middle of the Night Cover Art

Wait wait wait... This is all the way down here? What? This is one of the best songs I've ever heard!

But this is such a great song!
Her voice is pure perfection and the lyrics are fantastic.

This is criminal to be this low on list

One of my personal favorites from them!

Dangerous Dangerous Cover Art

I love this song. It is very upbeat, and the chorus is amazing. My new favorite song ever.

Great song. Howard Jones vocals are awesome in this as well.

One of the best male female duets in the entire genre!

My new favourite WT song! :O

Mother Earth Mother Earth Cover Art

This songs simply makes your heart dance. It's been my favourite song by them since the beginning, this I a masterpiece. Actually, even though I love other songs as much as this one, I consider this is their only masterpiece.

What are you doing all the way down here? That being sad this song shows its true mastery once you listen to it multiple times, with amazing vocals all the way to the hauntingly beautiful music as well as the deep lyrics.

It's a very very good song. The flute at the beginning just make me feel like I'm playing a video game. Lyrics are good too. Totally love this song. The live version of black Symphony tour is just stunning.


It's the Fear It's the Fear Cover Art

It is because of this song that I first discovered Within Temptation, and fell in love with their music. I have become a huge fan since. Sharon den Adel vocals are haunting yet beautiful all at the same time.

First song I've ever heard from WT will always have a special hold over me

Paradise (What About Us?) Paradise (What About Us?) Cover Art

This deserves number 1!
Before I discovered Within Temptation, Tarja (Nightwish) was my favorite band, I mean come ON!
With Tarja's operatic voice, Sharon's angelic voice, the awesome lyrics AND the amazing music, how can this be number 29?

Best duet ever by two females. Definite #1. Would be a supergroup if they stayed together.

Number 25? don't make me laugh/ cry. Much better that that, love it.

Two of my favorites together... just amazing!

See Who I Am See Who I Am Cover Art

My top 10:
Truth beneath the rose
See who I am
Stand my ground
Our Solemn Hour
Say My Name
Hand of Sorrow
Heart of Everything
And I can't figure out the other two. Sorry :(
These people rule!

See who I am, is one of the best songs made by within temptation in my opinion. It has some strong beat behind the lovely vocals by sharon.
The lyrics are also awesome. This song made me love WT..

This song introduced me to WT. Still my favorite.

Stand My Ground Stand My Ground Cover Art

This is their first song I've heard as I listen Evanescence songs, I accidentally watched this and for the first time hearing it, It gets stuck in my head. This song is way better than Angel. This should be the leading song

It deserves a higher place on this list. The combination of a heavenly melody and a powerful feeling is what makes this song so special. It's one of Within Temptation's signature songs for a reason.

First song of theirs I ever heard! At first, I just thought they were okay. Not great. A while later, I looked them up again. Deceiver of Fools. I just went from there! Love this song and band!

Love this one, I just discovered within temptation yesterday and so far this one is the one that's gets stuck in my head, powerful chorus, I LOVE it
