Best Within Temptation Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 In the Middle of the Night

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

This is criminal to be this low on list

In the middle of the night

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

22 Paradise (What About Us?)

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!

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

25 It's the Fear

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.

26 A Demon's Fate

Most times great songs take you many listens to appreciate its genius but this is the first time where as soon as I heard the pounding guitar riff coupled with Sharon's powerful and chilling cries of "Ooh, Oh, Ooh, Oh, Oohh, Oh, I felt a shiver up my spine and my heart started to race. with every listen this song sounds even more incredible, its uplifting and always moves me like no other human emotion can even come close to replicating!

Literally the best one, trust me6. Powerful and evocative

Impossible not to want to sing again and again the chorus, this is their best

This song is amazing, I can't get it out of my head... I found it on an amv and now I can't stop listening to it. I listened to loads of WT's songs but I still think this one is the best :D

27 Edge of the World

Its one of the most melodious songs ever... ! And I love the lyrics... it's so meaningful!

One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard in my life. So moving deserves so much higher.

28 Forgiven

So great lyrics about power of love and forgiving... Only Sharon can write something like that. Actualy, considering all song from WT, I think Sharon is the one of the best songwriters in the world!

You really think that "My Immortal" by Evanescence is the saddest love song in the world? Well, this song will literally make you cry a river.

Agreed Sharon is a Superb lyric writer. She is much better then Amy Lee.

Too pretty for words. :-]

Every song of WT is so ear catching! This is one of the faster songs, very catchy very energetic, makes you dance like Sharon and sing it all day long...

Makes you want to sing along (like many other songs)

WT's most underrated song. Sharon at her very best; That's saying a lot. - gruau

30 The Promise

Tough choice to be honest I was struggling to pick a best song as they are all good, I have yet to hear a poor Within Temptation song. The Promise is a great song with great lyrics and awesome vocals. This is Within Temptation at their best. Definitely their best song live, Sharon is amazing performing this live.

I dare you not to listen to this song on either The Black Symphony or Elements live albums and not get a huge shiver. What an amazing track this is, especially backed by the live orchestra!

Love the way Sharon keeps forgetting / changing the lyrics for this song when performing it live.

There is a passion about this awesome song.

31 The Heart Of Everything

It has got that something, even listening It over and over again It never gets boring.

32 Our Farewell

People have probably voted for the most voted songs like Angels and The Howling without looking down the list. This song is absolutely heart-touching and it gives me goosebumps. Such a heavenly voice and the music is just what defines Within Temptation. Deserves to be in top 10 at least.

Thank you Sharon for such a wonderful song. This song is so emotional the lyrics touch your soul.

Heard this played at a funeral recently. Such heartfelt and emotional lyrics. Wonderful song.

I defy anyone to listen to this song and not shed a tear. The lyrics just touch your soul.

The concept of the song is unique and very beautiful

35 The Truth Beneath the Rose

I'm actually shocked this isn't even on the top 10. WT is by far my most favourite band and there isn't an album of theirs I don't like but compositionally, The Truth Beneath the Rose is one of their most superior songs. It's beautifully played, beautifully sung (it uses Sharon's full range). It's seven minutes long but it actually feels like it could be ten minutes long and still not be enough. The chorus sings like Latin in the end and it's just so epic.

A powerful and magical song indeed. It's their best song in my opinion!

Just listening to this song now, this should definitely be ranked higher. It's so powerful.

The most epic song (with Iron being close)

36 A Dangerous Mind

Wow such powerful lyrics. I just have to know while I still have time do I have to run or hide away from you.

Captivating beginning and continues in a breathlessly haunting way! So WT!

This is Within Temptation at their best. Awesome music combined with vocals that are out of this world. Sharon is amazing

just listen to the acoustic version, sure you'll vote it to be the no. 1

This is the best song ever

This song should be on the top. It's so epic and meanful

38 Murder
39 Somewhere

The most touching song from WT! Only Sharon is able to make such a lyrics, and bring out such a emotions! WT- angels of music...

An epic display of emotions! Somewhere connects very deeply with emotions. Heavy on the meaning yet sung so lightly... Beautiful vocals...

Okay, this song is something else. It's definitely a touching song and I listen to it daily... never ever gets old.

It's Okay if You Cry with this

What! This song has to be in number 1! Is the best song, the combination of music and voice is perfect! It has quiet parts where we can appreciated her beautiful voice, most other songs have to much noise and she has to scream.

Oh God WHAT A SONG! HAS TO BE NUMBER 1. Everyone should love this song its impossible not to.

How can this utterly awesome song not be in the top tens? I heard the remix and loved it, but this I found to be far better. NOT FAIR!
I don't believe it.

Looove this song
Sharon is queen!
