Top 10 Best Evanescence Songs

Led by the enigmatic Amy Lee, this rock band exploded onto the music scene in the early 2000s with their signature blend of haunting melodies, soaring vocals, and emotionally charged lyrics.

From the gothic romance of My Immortal to the hard-hitting anthem Bring Me to Life, Evanescence's discography is a rollercoaster of emotions. Each song is a window into a world where darkness and light, love and loss, and pain and hope intertwine.
The Top Ten
1 Bring Me to Life

Wake me up,
Wake me up inside,
I can't wake up,
Wake me up inside,
Save me,
Call my name and save me from the dark,
Wake me up,
Bid my blood to run,
Wake me up,
Before I come undone,
Save me,
Save me from the nothing I've become.

This one is amazing. It stands out from all other bands because of her beautiful voice and the amazing music that accompanies the singing. This song is full of energy and should totally be at the top of this list. The lyrics are so beautiful and are among the best I know.

I don't really know many of their songs, but I do know My Immortal, Lithium, Hello, Snow White Queen, and Your Star. This is definitely the best out of all those songs and most songs in general.

2 My Immortal

I was so torn between this and Bring Me to Life. I felt I had to put this higher. One of the most emotional songs dealing with grief I had heard. The tone, melody, the lead's dark and beautiful voice, and the lyrics make this one of the best songs on this album for me.

This song makes me cry. It's a really good idea that throughout the video, you notice she is never touching the ground. She's in a tree, on a car, on a roof, and walking beside a fountain on a raised surface. It's a great concept. It gives reason and supports what the song is really about.

I believe My Immortal is about finding someone who makes you feel as if you're not touching the ground. This means they never put you down because you're always there for them. There's just too much that time cannot erase, speaks the truth. There's so much that time cannot undo, but these experiences shape who we are as individuals. They make us stronger.

This song is beautiful and peaceful, and it makes you reflect on those closest to you. I have also learned to play this song on the piano. I love it.

3 Going Under

Just to echo everyone else's words, "Bring Me To Life" is their best, but "Going Under" has an awesome video in which Amy is more beautiful than ever. It also boasts an impressive guitar solo.

Plus, Amy's voice is just as superb in this one as in "Bring Me To Life" and any of their other songs. It's definitely my favorite. Evanescence is great in all their songs. If you don't agree, that's great! The world would be a boring place if everyone liked the same thing. Evanescence forever!

I can't deny that Bring Me to Life is their best creation, but Going Under should be right next to it. The music, song, composition, and lyrics are all great. Above all, it has the best music video by Evanescence ever, especially the underwater filming of Amy Lee. She is simply fantastic.

4 Lithium

I love this song so much. I think that it makes a difference in me every time I listen to it. I thank her for making this song so much. It is such a soothing song for me.

When I'm mad or sad, it just makes me feel better. Music is a big part of my life. Thanks for the amazing song!

For some reason, this song always hooks me from the first moment I hear it. Her voice is so angelic and haunting at the same time in this song. I love it even more than Bring Me to Life!

There are a lot of songs more liked than Lithium, such as Bring Me to Life, Everybody's Fool, Tourniquet, and Going Under. What sets this song apart is the almost hypnotic effect it has on you, something no other song can achieve.

5 Everybody's Fool

I love this song, and the video is really good too. I like this song so much that I just had to perform it at this year's talent show. I hope I do well. I am only in seventh grade, but who knows?

Evanescence is one of my favorite artists. She is not only brilliant but also beautiful. Quick shout out: Your eyes are amazingly beautiful. I wish I had those colored eyes. All I have is brown.

Anyway, this song showcases a good tone and power in your voice, and I can use my guitar. You rock!

This song tells such a clever, entwining story with a beautifully matching video. They convey messages that resonate with so many people's lives, making every hair stand on end.

It's so reassuring to know that people in the press share the exact same feelings as us when listening to their songs, which just proves how unique and down-to-earth this timeless band truly is.

6 My Heart is Broken

You can feel it. This is the most passionate song they've made. To me, it sounds almost dreamlike. Bring Me to Life, My Immortal, all those songs are great, but this definitely showcases all the best qualities of this band in one song.

Chunky guitars, smashing drums, Amy's vocal range coupled with her amazing piano riffs. This is Evanescence's best song without question.

The only possible reason for this song not being in the Top 10 is that it hasn't been heard by enough people. This song is amazing, and once you hear it, you will want to hear it again and again. Amy Lee makes an amazing comeback with this song, its incredible vocals, and a chorus that will quite literally rock your socks off.

7 Call Me When You're Sober

It's with this song that I first discovered Evanescence and fell in love with them when I was a child. Every time I listen to this song, I remember the awe I felt when I first listened to something that wasn't pop music and thought it was amazing.

I get chills when I listen to this song. Not only is this song alternative metal, but it's also gothic metal. Or I should say that this song has gothic inspirations in it. It's just so beautiful and powerful!

There is just one word to describe this song, and that word is AWESOME! I've been to eight of their concerts, and I even got to meet Amy Lee, the lead vocalist. She was so nice!

Also, I like this song because of the video. The parts with the wolves are awesome! Leave another comment if you guys agree with me.

8 My Last Breath

The saddest song I've ever listened to. I literally crash when I listen to My Last Breath. It perfectly expresses how I feel every day in this world. I keep holding onto my last breath but never let go.

I'd really love to see a meaningful video for it. I think Evanescence didn't make an official video for My Last Breath because the imagery of it is intense and carries so much emotion that it might overwhelm many Evanescence fans. It breaks my heart, always has, and always will.

I LOVE all of these songs, and all the other Evanescence songs. I think that The Only One and Your Star should also be included.

I chose My Last Breath from this list because it's so beautiful, and the strings in it are incredible. And, of course, Amy's vocals are outstanding in every song.

9 Hello

This is my favorite song. You can tell Amy put the most time and effort into this song, and it takes me on a rollercoaster of emotions. It's amazing but sad.

The song is about Amy's 3-year-old sister, Bonnie, who tragically died from drowning many years ago when Amy was just 6. Rest in peace, Bonnie. This is one of the most underrated Evanescence songs, but it has some of the best lyrics I have ever heard. It's definitely one of the best songs ever.

This is about Amy Lee's sister. When she was six and in school, she received the horrific news that her 3-year-old sister had died. Although we weren't there at the time, this song takes us there.

With its sad vocals and high emotional meaning, it's believed to be the only song from the band's first album that has never been played live. But anyway, love it, love it, love it.

10 Imaginary

This song is just gorgeous. I actually just recently started listening to Evanescence's other music besides their big hits, and this was the song that officially got me hooked. The lyrics are some of my favorites they've ever written, and the composition is breathtaking. It definitely needs to be in the top 5.

The most underrated Evanescence song in my opinion. I can't go a day without listening to it! It's so beautiful and relatable.

Finding sanctuary in your own beautiful perfect imaginary world because you have a hard time handling such a cruel and harsh reality. Why isn't this number one on the list? And not even in the top ten? Come on, guys!

The Newcomers

? Yeah Right
The Contenders
11 Tourniquet

Wow, just... wow. There's hardly a handful of songs I've listened to in my life that actually made me cry, and this one really deserves to be at least among the top 5 songs. I'll be honest, I'm not really sure I like it better than Bring Me to Life or Going Under (the first song always wins...), but damn, this is great, in a dark and disturbing and depression-inducing kind of way.

Well, there are songs which are so depressing that they make you want to die. But this is the only one I know that's sad enough to remind you that death solves nothing. Give this song the love it deserves!

12 Haunted

This song is much better than Going Under. The top 3 should be Haunted, My Immortal, and either Bring Me to Life or Whisper. Amy Lee's voice is haunting, and this song is incredible.

The only song of hers I don't appreciate is Call Me When You're Sober as it's too soft for my taste, but I adore her and Evanescence. I think this band is even better than God. I worship them.

I agree with some of the top ten choices like Bring Me to Life, Going Under, Sweet Sacrifice, Heart is Broken, and Sober, but Haunted deserves a higher rank, perhaps 6th. It's so chilling and dark.

How can this song not be in the top 5, at the very least?! I don't know of any other song that gives me more chills than this one! It's dark, spooky, and simply AMAZING.

13 Snow White Queen

Amazing song! Why isn't it higher on this list? The music and lyrics by themselves are amazing, yet together they are horrifically exquisite!

One of the best Evanescence songs and, from what I heard, she did not write it. A stalker wrote it to her.

This song is my favorite. It starts quietly and then crescendos with the guitars. It's eerie but powerful.

14 Sweet Sacrifice

This song is so much better than Bring Me to Life. The guitars, the haunting vocals, and everything else about this song is better than Bring Me to Life.

Every time I ask someone their favorite Evanescence song, they always say it's Bring Me to Life. I'm the only person I know whose favorite Evanescence song is Sweet Sacrifice. I really wish more people would love this song as much as I do.

My absolute favorite Evanescence song. This was the first song I heard by them and instantly loved them. With this song on the list along with Lithium, how did Bring Me to Life get number one? Unreal.

15 Whisper

I can't believe this is so low down! How she can sing like that is beyond me. Every single part is immaculately written, sung, and played. It just reaches into your soul and grabs it, you know?

Catch me as I fall, say you're here and it's all over now. Immobilized by my fear, and soon to be... blinded by tears.

This song is actually really interesting. Granted, you sometimes can't understand what Amy Lee is saying, but I get it for the most part. Also, I'm a HUGE fan of the Latin at the end! By the way, servatis a periculum means save us from danger and servatis a maleficum means save us from evil.

16 What You Want

This song is my favorite Evanescence song! It has a very aggressive and vengeful theme which can really evoke emotions in the listener. It features one of the most powerful lyrics in all of Evanescence's songs: Hello, hello, it's only me, infecting everything you love.

This song is real industrial metal with lots of dimension in the vocals and guitar. It should be among the top five. Try to listen to it just once, and you can't. You will want to play it over and over again.

This is my favourite Evanescence song! The beats, guitar, and chorus are amazing. It's different from her other songs. It deserves to be among the top 5!

17 Like You

I long to be like you, Sis. Lie cold in the ground like you did. There's room inside for two, and I'm not grieving for you. As we lay in silent bliss, I know you remember me.

This should be in the top 5. Amy is at her best in this song. You can feel the pain of loss beautifully echoed in every line. I could listen to it endlessly.

It's amazing. Amy wrote this for her sister who died when she was 6 years old. Her vocals are touching and resonate deeply with me.

18 Lost in Paradise

This is a fairly new song, I suppose, so people haven't heard of it. But this is my favourite Evanescence song! It's beautiful, but you can rock out to it too.

It relates to my life so much it's kind of scary, and I cry every time I listen to it. Truly amazing and perfect. It has a ton of feeling in it too. I LOVE IT!

I love all the songs on the list. I usually really like a song when I can connect to it or when it's upbeat or something like that. I really love the part "Run away! Run away! One day we won't feel this pain anymore..." and "As much as I'd like the past not to exist, it still does" and "As much as I'd like to feel like I belong here..." She sang that part well, and those are the ones that make me cry. Even though I usually cry as soon as I hear it since it describes my life very well.

Fallen Angels

19 Good Enough

This song is so relaxing. I believe it's better than My Immortal because My Immortal is a very weeping and sad song. Good Enough makes me smile and feel peaceful, while My Immortal is heart-wrenching and touching.

I like Amy's voice in this song. It's so angelic! Besides, it's a really nice mix between hard rock and soft music. I also like the piano sheet that has been used in the first minute.

The song rhythm is so amazing. This has got to be the best song by Evanescence, no doubt.

I don't think I'm good enough to listen to this masterpiece. Everything about this song is just perfect, from Amy Lee's voice to the beautiful piano intro.

20 Lacrymosa

This song is very gothic. It's the inspiration behind the vampire novel I'm trying to write titled Moonlight Chronicles. Every time I write chapters, I listen to this song.

The BEST song ever by Evanescence! The choir is so haunting, and the old lyrics give it a nostalgic feel. However, the mix of modern words and lyrics creates a fantastic combination.

A superb and haunting song. The chorus is wonderful, and the haunting chorale underscores the beauty of the song. It deserves a top 5 spot for sure.

21 Erase This

This song is great and really demonstrates the range of things that Evanescence can do. It came straight from Amy's heart, and you can tell as she sings with such passion.

This song should be number 1. People don't know much about this song because it's not on the radio, but if people looked for it, they would all love this song as much as I do!

Erase This is my favorite song. This song must be a single. It's amazing. I love every part of this song!

22 Your Star

I love this song. It's laden with meaning. It stands out, both musically and lyrically. I'm completely captivated by it. Amy Lee's voice sounds angelic.

Lyrically, this is Evanescence's finest piece of work, in my humble opinion. I adore the message behind the song and how Amy Lee interpreted it in her unique way.

"Me and all I stood for, we're wandering now..." Such is life. This song has become my mantra: "Can't break the silence, it's breaking me." "All my fears turn to rage!"

23 Together Again
24 New Way to Bleed

This is one of my favourite Evanescence songs, and I hope it can easily reach the top 10 if you vote for it. It's surely better than some other songs that have a higher position.

One of my favorites, this song should be in the top 10. The intro to this song is amazing.

25 Missing

The feeling of loneliness makes you want to push yourself farther away. This feeling can chill you even in clear sunlight, creating a void filled with regretful emotion. The sensation of losing oneself positions you opposite your true identity, leading to misunderstandings and the false perception that you are the antagonist.

This song tells the story of someone confronting their alter ego, seeking understanding. It embodies the theme of slow, yet unmistakably clear, self-destruction.
