Top 10 Best Florence and the Machine Songs

All of the Florence and the Machine songs are great and amazing!
The Top Ten
1 Shake It Out

Powerful message, surreal vocal abilities, a fairy, and a party. This is the first Florence + The Machine song I ever heard and it made me listen to all of her songs and become a Flow. This song takes me out of the planet and life I'm living. It's brilliant!

I love this song! Florence has the voice of an angel. I get shivers when she sings. The lyrics are just amazing, and whenever I have regrets about anything, I listen to this song, and they're gone. My favorite Florence song, for sure.

This one really speaks to me and I think many people can relate with it as well! It has powerful vocals and I love how it slowly gets faster at a great pace. I could listen to this over and over again constantly. And I actually have! Still not tired of it

Great, excellent, awesome, superb, magnificent, out of this world; there are no words to describe how beautiful it, truly a piece of art. My favourite song out of her new album for sure!

2 Never Let Me Go

This was the song that completely enchanted me and made me in love with Florence. I felt chills and such power in her voice, such an artist like Florence is truly rare to find. The melody and meaning just flows inside of you and keeps you wanting more. Just breathless!

Magical. This song is by far one of the best songs I have ever heard. Enchanting and haunting, its perfect in every way. It's euphoric, even. This should be higher on this list, and on the charts. I wish this song had more recognition and Florence + The Machine as well.

This song has the power to go through your heart and take you to another dimension of your own life. It does something with your spirit that I can't explain. After hearing it I feel the power in me and the wish to get free of this material life.

Love love love this masterpiece to no end. Pity I can't listen to it as much because it's relatable in a depressing way. But all that aside, it's composed amazingly centered around her voice with a magical piano that lingers behind. Awesome!

3 Dog Days are Over

" When I first heard this song after hearing it off and on throughout my life in the past. It seriously caught my attention. But more recently, I have taken the time to watch her perform this song on stage. I wish I could have been there in 2010! I was completely awe struck! This song, regardless of what anyone believes or not is to say the least an absolutely thrilling experience. I don't know about anyone else, but it made me cry and gave me THE CHILLS! I would seriously recommend it for anyone! "

Why is this below Never Let Me Go? This song is very original and also catchy. This is the first song I've heard from them. I immediately feel in love with them. It's an iconic song and their best song. Should be at least number one or second because shake it out is as good as this song.

Love Cosmic Love, but Dog Days are Over is so much better. It is just amazing, her voice in the song is beautiful and the instrumentals, it is catchy with good lyrics and an all round amazing song. Definitely deserves to be number 1!

This song is what made me really fall in love with music, yeah, sure music was great when you had nothing else to do, but this was what made me fall in love with music. Without this song the world would be very bleach.

4 Cosmic Love

Most of Florence's songs are great but this? This HAS to be first, come on! Shake it out is really nice, I like it a lot but I really don't think it deserves to be first while there's better songs like cosmic love. Like most Florence and the machine songs, it gets better and better as it goes on. Love love love! So beautiful!

This is one of those beautiful songs which has a mixture of good music, good lyrics.. It's so beautiful to listen to.. The song completely refreshes one's mind.. It's a very very beautiful song.. The best one Florence + The Machine has ever given to us!

I am absolutely in love with this song! I knew about Florence's Dog Days Are Over and Shake It Out, but when I heard this song, I craved her music even more! Number three is a good spot for this list. It also has a powerful effect on me.

An absolutely beautiful song that still manages to be her best song, as well as the most underrated among the pop charts. I get chills every time I hear this song, with it's elegant strings and breathtaking beats. 'Cosmic love' is the definition of 'art'.

5 What the Water Gave Me

Transcendently epic. A powerhouse of a song, and completely magnificent.

The harps, guitars and gospel choir are all typical of Florence and are part of its brilliance.

A majestic song!

A song that continually builds but it's epicness knows no boundaries. Though this song might not showcase Florence's voice to her absolute potential, she conveys the meaning and emotions effortlessly. A song of the highest quality.

The world Florence has created in this song is just such a beautiful place to lose yourself in. Turn off the lights, plug in your headphones and go along with the ride...

This song is so inspiring and I personally think it uses great power and she really puts her heart into it. This song is very good and it's very catchy.
In my opinion, it should be number 1!

6 Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)

The instrumentals and her amazing voice, plus the meaning of the song, make it an epic song... Like all her songs. This is the best though, because no matter how much I listen to Flo or this song and no matter what I go through, this song always is a pleasure to listen to a million times.

I remember the first time I heard this song, thinking it must be one of the most brilliant, striking songs I've ever heard. Each time I lists to it I'm hooked for days, at least.

I love the harp and drums, and the meaning of this song is so wonderful. The chorus is so catchy and never fails to make me feel happy! One of the best songs of all time

Simply and amazing song with fantastic harps and choirs. Florence is just awesome! Nothing conpares to her amazing voice and talent! Her new album is the best ever too!

7 No Light, No Light

Wow. Just wow. This is such an amazingly beautiful song. The second time I heard the song I couldn't help but obsess with it! "No light, no light! In your bright blue eyes. I never knew daylight could be so violent" Just amazingly beautiful. Congragulations Florence and the machine on a superb song.

I was completely obsessed with this song for at least a month and I made all of my friends and family listen to it. Definitely one of my top ten favorite songs of all time, and I'm shocked it's not higher on this list.

Such an amazing song! Very catchy! It's one of those songs that you need to sing along to, but you never know the lyrics! Definitely my favorite! But Dog Days are over is so awesome! That's second for me!

Amazing song. Beautiful, meaningful, lyrics and a great, powerful rhythm. Definitely my favorite song of hers. There are also countless other little details that make is song so great!

8 Howl

This is a powerful, mysterious, ethereal song that makes me think of storms. It speaks of love that turns obsessive, dangerous even; I especially love the line "I hunt for you with bloody feet across the hallow'd ground" because it implies that she is so consumed with her lover that she does not care if she's hurt. The soul poured into this song is heartrending.

This is definitely one of the best songs by her. It's so powerful and every time she goes "I hunt for you with bloody feet across the hallow ground" I get chills (especially at the end). It's just so well done and such a good narrative.

The lyrics of this song are so passionate, intense, and literally magical. It's haunting yet quick-paced beat gives me chills every time I listen to it. Florence outdoes herself with this inspiring piece.

I love how much dreaming you can do. I have made stories to this and all florence songs make you believe and have hope and cry mostly. I am 11. And this already inspires me.

9 Seven Devils

This is amazing. Work has definitely gone into this song. I can tell because not only are the lyrics haunting but florence's voice is haunting as well as the backing track. I think I've listened to this song 100 times or 1000.

This is the most haunting song I have ever heard. Listened to it on repeat for hours and hours. Discovered it while watching Revenge T.V. series. To me this is their NUMBER ONE song no doubt in my mind.

This is just beautiful... I can't believe it's not #1... The song is just so dark and enchanting... Just listen to it! You won't be able to forget a song like this one... And it's tunes are just so amazing! Genius...!

Listening to this song while walking down a windy street makes you feel like you're in an awesome movie trailer. Haunting, chilling, and definitely the best song on the album.

10 Between Two Lungs

I don't know why people even rank her songs? I love every single one of them its like "The Curse of Florence and The Machine" which entails loving every song she has ever sang but Between Tow Lungs is one of the first of her songs I heard and I love it because of that and the syncopation is, I think, one of the most amazing things she's done so far

This girl has lungs! She can belt liek a beast and then come back and become airy and beautiful. her music is so aw inspiring.

In my opinion the best

The Contenders
11 What Kind of Man

The first single from the new album 'How Big How Blue How Beautiful'!
We were waiting almost 4 years and Flo is back with a really great song with an amazing music video.
Florence wrote and composed this song! She is a great singer, writer and actress!
I am not dissapointed from the new song! I really love it and I cannot wait for the release day!
Our Queen of Indie Pop and Rock is Back!

Haha I totally agree with the comment below, so excited for her new album, me and my best friend screamed with excitement for ages when it was announced, P.S. obsessed with this song!

I find it incredibly hard to choose favourite FATM songs, but this is definitely one of them! The power and passion in this song are fantastic, along with the brilliant drums and guitar and her brilliant voice make this song truly amazing

"What Kind of Man" is fantastic! I can't understand how some of the other songs are higher up than this masterpiece that ushered in a new era!

12 You've Got the Love

This is possibly here most well known song, and although some might argue it is not her best, so many people, including myself were introduced to the great Florence through this song! It may not be number 1, but it definitely deserves to be in the top 10

This is the first song that introduced me to her music and I have to say after listening to most of her songs I still see this one as the best. You can feel the emotion she pored into this song. Although most people may not realize it

The best song of hers by far! The notes she hits on point and the lyrics are all so beautiful.

Speaks such truth

13 Bedroom Hymns

I can't believe that this song is number 21. I thought it must be 4 or 5. The melody is absolutely amazing with drums and everything.

Just awesome, makes your heart races faster and faster.

Should be number 1; it's definitely their best song. Very unique style

By far my favorite song. Should be in Top 5.

This should be at least in the top 5.

14 Spectrum

Excellent song with heavier arena rock and lyrics. It sounds kind of unusual for an f+tm song, but it perfectly fits them in the end, expressing a more powerful and shivering aspect of Florence, and satisfying those that wanted something less light than their previous songs. Actually, everybody goes on saying that shake it out, cosmic love, you've got the love, dog days are over are their best but I never really liked any of them. I think the three real f+tm masterpieces are spectrum, rabbit heart and what the water gave me. Anyway, keep up the splendid job Flo and you guys!

This is totally the best song! Every single time I listen to it I hear something new. The video is amazing too. It's like fireworks exploding, only you can see them when you listen to this song. I can't belive this nips not in the top ten. It's so much better than shake it out which is mediocre.

The chorus of this song literally sends chills down my spine every time I hear it. It's an incredible song that expanded my musical horizons. There aren't many things on earth as strong and beautiful as florence's voice in this song in my opinion.

Oh my god where do I start this is the first Florence song I heard and ever since I have been hooked it is such an enchanting, haunting and beautiful songs I deserves more votes!

15 Ship to Wreck

Born in 52- I grew up in 60s and 70s, and mostly I can't listen to pop music these days. But I saw them on SNL and this song immediately grabbed me and sucked me in to this new world. Soulful grown up woman voice and wonderful song structure with a tight band cooking along. This is the real deal.

The worst song in my opinion in the new album. It has not even a good melody, listen to it... A BIG disappointment and I cannot understand how they decided that this will be the song that opens the album...

This song deserves the top 2 spot on the list next to shake it out. Listen to it. It's really good = )

Why is this 50? This song is amazing.. My favorite on her new album.

16 Only If for a Night

Though perhaps not quite as anthemic as "Shake It Out," this song possesses an inimitably etherial, almost surreal quality that all but transcends everything else she's yet accomplished. There are so many punctuating moments in the song, borne largely of its pacing and unique musical arrangement, that stir a certain shifting of gear-shifting sensation within the listener; she draws you into her quietly lugubrious twilight dreamland in the first few moments of the song, when suddenly the colors of that melancholy painting slam through the glass and envelop you the moment those gossamer harp notes give way to the driving thump of the percussive beat. Her vocals seamlessly travel between the eponymous choral pronouncement, emotional, yet perfectly restrained caterwauling, and a low quivering bleat. To bear witness to this tune's lyrical/musical transitions, marked invariably by the reiteration of the song's title line, is to expelled through a pinhole in an interdimensional wall; the ...more

The vocals of this song are so powerful. It brings out indescribable emotions within me. I can listen to this song again and again and it still gives me chills.

Beautiful song. How could this possibly be all tge way down here?! I first heard it pretty recently and I was blown away! It is indeed a very amazing song. It should be at least number 5.

A great composition and her MTV Unplugged performance is hauntingly beautiful and a great indication of Flo's vocal ability.

17 Drumming Song

Louder than sirens. Louder than bells. Sweeter than heaven and hotter than HELL! How can you beat those intense lyrics?!

Inspiring, riveting, I love everything about this song and its irresistable beat. It gets stuck in my head so often, and I love more every time. Go Florence!

WHAT?! How can anything top... Louder than sirens louder than bells sweeter than heaven and hotter than HELL

I just can't believe this song is ranked so low...

My fave for sure!

18 Breath of Life

I truly don't understand how this isn't number one! This song is amazing and powerful and it has such a lovely sound. The minute I hear her vocals with the heavy drums and all the backings I get goosebumps! Honestly this songs sounds like she's on her way to tear down someones castle (besides seven devils of course) and it really should be further up top

Truly powerful and amazing. It simply flows out and fits together perfectly. There is so much energy at certain parts and the vocals sound wonderful with a haunted kinda sound. The was mesmerized the first time I heard this song and it definitely is one of my most favorite songs from florence and the machine!

It's the most epic song of florence! The moment I heard it I felt like going out and fight! Best soundtrack for Snow white and the huntsman! Definitely gonna watch this movie because of this magical song of florence+the machine! Love them, this is how true artists must be!

My favorite songs were Drumming and Seven Devils until I heard Heavy in your arms and Breath of Life.B.O. L is a beautiful song blowing out the overrated competition that is Cosmic Love and Shake It Out!

19 Kiss with a Fist

Fell in love with this song since Jennifer's Body movie.

This needs to be on the top ten! Wake up people.

My favourite song, all her sass has come out!

If "Kiss with a Fist" is so far down this list then I am wondering what's waiting for me up there

20 Over the Love

The best song of florence and the machine by far! Absolutely number 1! It is the perfect soundtrack! So emotional and powerful! The vocals are out of this world! I cannot believe what high notes flo can reach! Also the lyrics are great! I can see the green light I can see it in your eyes is my favourite line... Finally that song has the most epic ending! Cry and cry and cry over th love you! Congrats to Florence + The Machine... Amazing job...

For me the top 5 is...
1. Over the love (by far)
2. Drumming Song
3. Bedroom hymns
4. No light no light
5. Blinding
6. What the water gave me
7. Only if for a night
8. Spectrum
9. Rabbit heart or Cosmic love
10. Shake it out or Dog days are over
All amazing songs and so difficult to put them in order...

Love this song it's so addicting! I think it's beautiful it should be up there!
Her voice is so strong and incredible that it's haunting.
I was amazed the first time I heard it.
This is actually my favorite song from her.

I think it's a beautiful song! And I simply love it.. The effect it produces when you listen to the howls and the desperate cries... Simply terrific and lovely!

21 All This and Heaven Too

A nice and charming touch! A definite feel-good song by Florence Welch! I saw this song on this list and I had never heard it before, but now that I have, I absolutely love it! Highly recommend it to Florence listeners out there!

I first fell in love with it when I heard Florence sing it live at the Royal Albert Hall. There's just something really sweet and soft about this song. If there's one thing keeping me going, it's this song.

One of my favorite songs on the album! It's got a really beautiful, magical feel to it that never ceases to make me feel all gooey inside. Everything about it is amazing.

This song like the story of my life and my relationship! I love how Florence knows how to connect everyday relationships to this song!

22 Delilah

Love the comparison of her love with the Samson, Delilah and the philistines story. Sso much meaning in a song.

This song is really beautiful! Definitely in my top three. (Just under cosmic love)

This is the best song that has ever happened to me.

Dance, dance and dance!

23 Queen of Peace

Florence's vocals in here is awesome. I'm getting a medieval vibe from this song. Something reminiscent and historical. Plus, you can also dance with the beat and instrumentals of this song. This is my favorite song from Florence though I love the majority of her songs.

Florence doesn't perform this song nearly enough. It belongs in the top 10 without question.

By far and away the best Florence song ever made. Make it number one!

Without question, one of the five best songs ever made by Florence.

24 Pure Feeling

Underrated because it's a bonus track! Such a powerful song.

25 Swimming

Because this did not appear on either album, I've never really felt the incentive to lists to it, but once I did I found it awe-inspiring. The lyrics have such meaning and emotion so that you form an emotions connection. Also, the instrumental is another great aspect-for example the violins playing in the first 10 seconds is a definite highlight and just really solidifies how amazing this song really is. If you haven't already heard this, I highly recommend doing so, you absolutely won't regret it!

I have listened to every single song Florence + the Machine has produced and I will confidently say that this is my absolute favorite. Nothing compares. Really! Nothing! This song is so amazing...that being said, I was well into my Florence obsession before I ever listened to it, as it is on Lungs isn't one of her headliners, which is a shame, because IT IS PERFECTION. No fan of Florence should be able to call himself/herself a true Flow until he/she has embraced the art of Swimming.

I just love this song, I love all FATM songs but this one is so beautiful, all of FATM's less famous songs like My boy builds coffins and Addicted to love need more attention.

This is my favorite song ever!
