Best Lorde Songs

The Top Ten

1 Team

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.

Amazing song,got the right rank...no one can beat this crazy songπŸ’²πŸ’²πŸ’²πŸ’²πŸ’²

2 Royals

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

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

3 Tennis Court

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 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!

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 on the radio in Grand Theft Auto 5

4 Ribs

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.

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.

Definitely Lorde's most underrated song. Try listening to it with headphones on, it feels like you're listening to a completely different song.

5 Yellow Flicker Beat

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.

Loooveee lorde's voice and music in this song..so mysterious and definitely one of the best.

6 Buzzcut Season

"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

Absolutely best song by Lorde ever.

7 Bravado

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

I love how this song is all about gaining confidence. It's like a great pep talk!

8 400 Lux

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!

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.

9 Glory and Gore

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!

How it all started! Listen if you loved Royals.

I love the meaning and her voice in this song

The Contenders

11 White Teeth Teens

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

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

12 Everybody Wants to Rule the World

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!

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

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!

This is my ultimate theme when I'm confronting my enemies.

13 A World Alone

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.

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! - moonwolf

Its sooo realatable especially when you're a trnd setter and not a follower I love lordes sound

15 Liability

This song is absolutely incredible

Awesome song

Amazing. Will be in top 5 soon.

Tragically beautiful

16 Million Dollar Bills

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.

17 No Better

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

18 Hard Feelings/Loveless

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

19 Magnets

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 good
