Top 10 Best Lorde Songs

The Top Ten
1 Team Team Cover Art

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!

I heard this song at work the other day and fell in love with it. Her voice, the lyrics.. Just everything is beautiful! By far number 1

And everyone's competing for a love they won't receive...
Privileged to hear it is all I'm gonna say.
The music, the lyrics, her voice. beauty.

Even after all these years, this is the song from Pure Heroine that I always listen to first. Classic.

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 song won the Grammy! (Even though Katy Perry should of) this is her most successful song and is my favorite!

This should be on no1. It's amazing simply wow! Soothing voice of Lorde love her, and Royals too.

Dude, won Grammy Best song of the year...How could this not be no1

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

How Can someone write such a rich song in the age of 16?
I really respect Lorde for being so talented.
The lyrics of this song and the way she sings it is simply, AWESOME!

Man I've listened to this song so many times, that I think my repsat button is broken. It has a sick beat, and I loved it when she says 'yeah'. It's so soothing and just... AWESOME! Love ya lorde!

4 Ribs Ribs Cover Art

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.

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 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!

I'm putting the chorus right up there with songs like Creep, Lose Yourself, Smells like teen spirit and Highway to hell. It's PHENOMENAL. And the song overall is so good that it convinced me to read 3 books and watch 4 movies :|

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

Its all, what stands for Lorde's special music style with is only one time on this earth. And I LOVE this song (and her...)

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.

I can't believe Royals is number one. It is way overplayed and don't ge me wrong, I really like it. But, this song and Ribs are much better.

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

7 Green Light Green Light Cover Art

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

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

What an awesome track! Great job Lorde! Can't wait 4 new material!

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 this not number 1? I admut, tennis court and team is awesome, but seriously? Compared to those songs, this is like its made by a cold blooded killer with all the emotions and the beat!

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!

9 Liability Liability Cover Art

This song is absolutely incredible

Amazing song, definitely her best

Amazing. Will be in top 5 soon.

Just her best 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.

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!

This song is (if not the best song), at least in the Top 3. So beautiful, so powerful, it tugs at my heartstrings. Very relatable too--she has put into words my depressing, teenagery feelings.

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 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 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.

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.

I love this song so much. It has the darkness of Team or Yellow Flicker Beat, but also the carefree I don't care of Royals. I never listened to this song till today believe it or not, and now I can't get it outta my head.

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

Being a high-schooler, I can relate so much to this song. Lyrics are amazing. That last 1 min though. Feels.

13 A World Alone A World Alone Cover Art

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.

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!

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

14 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!

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.

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.

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!

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!

The chorus and all that is ok, but the end is great.

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.

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

Soulful and speaks to me personally.

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

Lorde captures the feeling of nostalgia so beautifully, and I can’t think of a better example of this. It’s a song which represents a feeling we’ve all had, accepting imperfection in ourselves and in our connections with others. But it does this while sounding happy, melancholy, sad and tragic all at once.

18 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"

19 Homemade Dynamite Homemade Dynamite Cover Art

Just perfect

20 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.

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.

21 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

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

Best song. Hands down.

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

24 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

25 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?
