Best Lorde Songs

The Top Ten

1 Team Team Cover Art

We live in cities you'll never see on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things
Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams
And you know, we're on each other's team

Come on people we are one percent away from Team being #1 over Royals! We gotta do this! Royals isn't that good of a song... especially no as good as Team! JUst the lyrics are great!

Definitely best song of Lorde.

I highly disagree. A lot of the songs people are picking are pop and common sounding songs of hers? Why?

2 Royals Royals Cover Art

I like that this song isn't saying "Because I'm rich, I'm gonna make a song about it", instead it's like "I'll never be that way because it's just not my thing". I thought the world had lost hope, then this song came out!

This is the best song... juts love this song

I think this is too overplayed and overrated. I love this song. But there are more songs of Lorde that's a lot better than this. They need more appreciation.

I think that that song and team are the best

3 Tennis Court Tennis Court Cover Art

I think Royals is great... But overhyped, so I prefer the genius Tennis Court because I can relate to the lyrics (Don't you think that it's boring how people talk? ) and I love the beat and the yeahs. You're amazing, Lorde!

This is my favourite song! This song created my personal dark style! The Yeahs, when I listen this song, make me stronger all time! And The song' s video can destroy all your problems in your head in that moment

My top fave Lorde song ever, I could never get sick of this, the lyrics are smart and sharp, the beat is heavy and simple and the way it is arranged is quite nostalgic and fresh at the same time

As much as I like Royals and Team I really like the Tennis Court, its genius and not overplayed. Lorde Forever!

4 Ribs Ribs Cover Art

This is honestly the best song I've ever heard lyrically and musically. The lyrics describe her fear of getting old and losing that magical way of thinking associated with it (extremely relevant now; Melodrama shows how much she's changed), which is something everyone can relate to. The undulating electronic synthesizers really make you feel the nostalgia, too

Ribs used to be the only song from Pure Heroine I NEVER listened to, and I can't tell how often I listened to this album with skipping Ribs. But now, as I finally discovered the song, I'm obsessed with it, it's a brillantly written song, lyrically and generally - the feelings and the story it transports is incredible and relatable. I want to laugh till my ribs get tough with the only friend I need, as well.

Ribs is the best Lorde song written by far. I've been listening to it for years and I'm still not bored with it. Every word has so much meaning and that's why having so few words work with this song. Its just incredible the way this song makes me feel. Nothing compares to it, at least in my world.

This song is so good. It's so deep. I love her lyrics and her melody and her background singing. There is literally nothing wrong with this song, its truly a masterpiece and way underrated.

5 Yellow Flicker Beat Yellow Flicker Beat Cover Art

I have been listening to this song since last 4hrs! It's so awesome! This is about the Rise of Katniss In Mockingjay! The fire, is what this is all about! Excellency at par! Simply the best! Loved it the most!

Definitely her best song in my opinion. Maybe I'm biased because I love hunger games, but it's s great song regardless.

This song is so cool. Mysterious and grows in intensity, then at the chorus she just lets it out!

One of the best songs I've heard in awhile.

6 Buzzcut Season Buzzcut Season Cover Art

"Explosions on T.V. and all the girls with heads inside their dreams" is a perfect example of how the lyrical content is so poignous and effective. You can tell this girl is so intellectual and ahead of her years for providing this realistic take on modern society. I find it relatable because much like most young adults these days I choose to ignore the reality we live in by focusing on superficial things.

Wonderful! The more you listen to it, the more you build up your own thought about the meaning of this song. Love it.

This shows how terrible society is. It is also about war, it's buzzcut season because the guy is going to war.

It's a beautiful song and it tells how bad society has become

7 Green Light Green Light Cover Art

Its fiery and lyrically great "she think you love the beach, you're such a damn liar".

Great song, slow at first but amazing when it explodes.

Favourite song it comes from the heart and you can feel her emotion in her voice

It's only low because it's relatively new. Absolute banger of a song

8 Glory and Gore Glory and Gore Cover Art

I think that this song has the most unique and catchy beat. The lyrics should not be ignored as they are wonderful as well. These two things make this song my overall favorite.

How is Glory and Gore not #1? I am a huge Lorde fan, and Glory and Gore is definitely her best song. It has dope beats, and it is as catchy as heck.

Literally don't understand why her other songs aren't as popular, they are so much better! They deserve more appreciation!

Glory and gore is such an amazing song and the meaning behind it is beautiful

9 White Teeth Teens White Teeth Teens Cover Art

Yes, it is about popularity and the rich people and why they suck. Rich people suck, and it is said in this song, it's better not to be a fake person, but a real person.

I agree totally! I'd rather be kinda poor with my family and friends and the truth than isolated and lost but super rich

This is one of her most underrated songs I think. Royals beats this easily

This song is just incredible. Her songwriting ability is displayed best on this song

10 400 Lux 400 Lux Cover Art

This song is so beautiful in the sense that the lyrics are genius. This deserves to be number 1. I love Lorde, but I have to admit I'm not a fan of Yellow Flicker Beat. It depicts her everyday life in a suburban town with no airs or graces but Lorde just makes it sound like it is Utopia. This

"Now wear long sleeves,
And the heating comes on.
We're getting good at this.
Dreams of clean teeth,
I can tell that you're tired
But you keep the car on
While you're waiting out front..."

Optimistically neutral, yet vaguely melancholic. Poetry at its finest.

I Love 400 Lux. I love songs that are really different and this song is. I listen to it all the time. Love Her!

This is so hard! I love Lorde, she's one of my favourite singers, and I think the whole Pure Heroine is genius and amazing. Every song of hers is brilliant, but 400 Lux, Ribs and A World Alone arethe ones I'm completely obsessed with. But if I had to choose one, it would be 400 Lux for sure. It's so simple, yet fun and entertaining and you can listen to it whatever mood you're in. It's amazing!

Only #10? Come on... It's got a hip hop style beat, and I get chills when lorde sings "you pick me up and take me home again" lol. Should be Number 1

The Contenders

11 Liability Liability Cover Art

This song is absolutely incredible

Awesome song

Amazing. Will be in top 5 soon.

Tragically beautiful

12 Bravado Bravado Cover Art

This should be one of her top songs on this list. On first listen it is simple to merely brush it off as one of her less iconic songs. But the beauty lies within thanks to its honest lyrics about her accepting her fame and her coming out of her shell. The structure of the song is also beautiful, starting out as a slow and quiet piece that transforms into a gospel-like piece of work that is lead by Lorde's strong voice.

This is one of the best songs ever written. The way she comes out of her shell in the last two verses. It’s incredible and the lyrics are clever.

This song isn't an uplifting one like a simple-minded person would take it as at first glance, and that's what makes the song so beautiful and relatable, especially to me personally. It's a reflecting song, one that encourages one struggling with narcissism not to heal, but to- instead of wonder what's wrong with you when the spotlight's off of you and you feel lonely and self-reflective- find something you can constantly be good at and feel approval from others through that vessel.

The lyrics here are iconic! I will eventually get a tattoo dedicated to this song.

13 Everybody Wants to Rule the World Everybody Wants to Rule the World Cover Art

Oh gosh! Never knew that is her song. Listen it half a year in Assassin's Creed trailer. Highly underrated song, I supposed that it would be on first five. You are genius Lorde.. Love you!

I saw this on a video called "gravity falls no turning back" and I had no idea what the song was called. Now that I do, I can't stop listening to it!

Very good song, actually this is the 2nd favorite across from Yellow Flicker Beat, yet this one is really good, in my opinion better than Royals.

When I heard this on Assassin's Creed Unity trailer I just fell in love with the song. Her cover is 10 times better than the original. Her voice is so perfect.

14 A World Alone A World Alone Cover Art

This is her best song from the listener who is not her fans.
TOP 5 = A World Alone, Supercut, The Louvre, Writer In the Dark, and Hard Feelings/Loveless.

I don't know how this song isn't #1! I think her talent really shows in this song especially!

St strum of the guitar, you'll immediately be reminded with The Weekend's The Morning, but unlike the latter, A World Alone shows how brilliantly Lorde could write songs that don't just reflect her own experience as a teen but others could also relate to.

Love this song, 400 lux, LOVE CLUB, and team, all totes deserve to be on this list!

15 The Love Club The Love Club Cover Art

How it all started! Listen if you loved Royals.

I love the meaning and her voice in this song

This and royals... Love her!

Best song hands down.

16 Hard Feelings/Loveless Hard Feelings/Loveless Cover Art

I love all her songs, but this is hands down my favorite. Hard Feelings just really hits me no matter how many times I hear it.

Soulful and speaks to me personally.

When I first heard this song I was brought to tears- relatable lyrics and beats that are cringingly beautiful and incomparable. Love this song!

17 Supercut Supercut Cover Art

The lyrics " in my head I do everything right" or " we were wild and fluorescent come home to my heart" and the beat make it one of her best songs!

This song is not receiving the love it deserves! Super awesome lyrics and message, I love her songs that have that hint of nostalgia. This song is addicting and I just feel really good every time I listen to it.

This is an underrated gem, probably the most underrated Lorde song ever. I heard it on the radio and I loved it, so darn catchy

I just as the song on the top 5 list

18 Million Dollar Bills Million Dollar Bills Cover Art

Awesome song :))) It was featured in many television advertisements. It is a highlights from her EP, The Love Club.

So good

2 mins won't help this song into th top to but you gotta admit that if this track was longer, it sure as hell deserves a spot there.

19 Perfect Places Perfect Places Cover Art

These days, all people listen to are rappers who sing about random ideas and have no sense of meaning whatsoever. The only good singer left is Lorde. She hasn't caught the "rapper's fever" yet. Her lyrics to Perfect Places are beautiful! Great beats and great rhythm. Not like The Chainsmokers where they release horrible music every month.

Most lit lorde song and my favourite song ever

Best song. Hands down.

When it says "Every night I live and die" - #MeEveryday

20 Homemade Dynamite Homemade Dynamite Cover Art

Just perfect


21 The Louvre The Louvre Cover Art


"Blow all my friendships to sit in hell with you
But we're the greatest, they'll hang us in the Louvre
Down the back, but who cares, still the Louvre"

22 No Better No Better Cover Art

Someone in my English class said I was losing my mind to be listening to Lorde. He lost his head

No better, but it's a better song

23 Sober Sober Cover Art

This is definitely the best song off melodrama

Best of her


24 Magnets Magnets Cover Art

I don't really know how one picks just one song of Lorde because they all are just hilarious so I'm choosing the last one that caught me.

I never really thought bout it, to be honest. It's a good song. I guess pretty girls don't know the things that I know...

The first time I heard this song it struck me. This should be in the top ten at least

I can't believe it's so down in the list. I mean have you heard the song?

25 Writer in the Dark Writer in the Dark Cover Art

This song is so passionate and beautiful. The mix of her deep notes + her falsetto combined with the spacious orchestra music make this gem worth putting on repeat

Pure, sheer brilliance! Lorde shines in this song brighter than a diamond.

Easily her most underrated song. My favourite from Melodrama

This is so underrated, it should be at least in top 5
