Best Lorde Songs
The Top Ten
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.
Even after all these years, this is the song from Pure Heroine that I always listen to first. Classic.V 35 Comments
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
There are better songsV 23 Comments
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
I love Royals, but it's by far her weakest song. Besides the pitch shifting on the chorus, this is perfect, though disappointing. I heard people call this her best song. Eh, I prefer Team and Yellow Flicker Beat. - WonkeyDude98

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.
THE BEST! I love the lyrics, the rhythm, the music and Lorde's voice. It's not catchy but if you listen to it over and over you'll be addicted to it and never grow out of it.😻V 22 Comments
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!
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.
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 :|V 23 Comments
"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. - Recenation
This shows how terrible society is. It is also about war, it's buzzcut season because the guy is going to war. - ToptenPizza
I love this song! It makes me think of summer and innocence!V 10 Comments
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.
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.
Honestly bravado, and biting down are my faves of hers right now. I adore her, really
YASS! MY WHOLE EXISTENCE IN ON SONGV 3 Comments
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!
While Glory and Gore may be my favorite Lorde song by far... 400 Lux is QUINTESSENTIALLY Lorde.V 8 Comments
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. - EmperorAguila
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
WOAH! THIS should BE IN 1!V 6 Comments
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. - ToptenPizza
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
Love this song. Def her best - TabordeedotplunkettV 4 Comments
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.
It's only low because it's relatively new. Absolute banger of a song
Favourite song it comes from the heart and you can feel her emotion in her voiceV 9 Comments
How it all started! Listen if you loved Royals.
I love the meaning and her voice in this song
This and royals... Love her! - letmebeyourrouler
The chorus and all that is ok, but the end is great.V 1 Comment
This song is absolutely incredible
Amazing. Will be in top 5 soon.
This song is amaziinnnggV 3 Comments
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. - xcToxicana
Her best song ever! Keep it up Lorde (Ella)V 12 Comments
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! - moonwolf
Its sooo realatable especially when you're a trnd setter and not a follower I love lordes soundV 8 Comments
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.
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" - #MeEverydayV 1 Comment
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!
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
Best of her
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
It was goodV 5 Comments
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 5V 1 Comment
THE BEST LORDE SONG!
"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"
The instrumentals are incredible
The production, orchestra, and beat drop are insane.
A great rendition of Bright Eyes "Ladder Song". The cover is done beautifully.
One of the most soothingly dreamy songs I have ever heard. Perfect to listen to by yourself at nighttime by a pool.
This is a really relaxing song! Why is it so low?!? It should be much higher.
Love this. So much better than original by the replacements
This is such a hypnotising and amazing song. It should definitely be much higher! I love this song so much
She have many song on hunger games?
So many awesome collabs like HAIM and from Mockingjay
This song means a lot! So sad people can not see it. I just voted for it as the best Lorde song. I would really like to know that this hasn't been recognized because of people's knowledge instead of because of it being bad.
I always skipped this song because I disliked. A lot. However after listening to it more, it has become my FAVORITE out of all of the other songs. Such a good tune, worth listening too.
I disliked this song the first few times I listened to it.
But, like 400 Lux, with more listens and good headphones the song grew on me tremendously.
I can't pick my favorite Lorde song but this is definitely deserves more credit.
This song is so overlooked. It derserves to be at least in the top ten.
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
Amazing, energetic!V 2 Comments
