Top 10 Best Florence and the Machine SongsAll of the Florence and the Machine songs are great and amazing!
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 to 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.
This was the song that completely enchanted me and made me fall in love with Florence. I felt chills and such power in her voice. An artist like Florence is truly rare to find. The melody and meaning just flow inside of you and keep you wanting more. Just breathless!
Magical. This song is by far one of the best songs I have ever heard. Enchanting and haunting, it's 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.
When I first heard this song after hearing it off and on throughout my life, 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 awestruck! This song, regardless of what anyone believes, 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 heard from them. I immediately fell 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 are catchy with good lyrics, making it an all-around amazing song. Definitely deserves to be number 1!
Most of Florence's songs are great, but this one? This HAS to be first. Come on! Shake It Out is really nice, I like it a lot, but I don't think it deserves to be first while there are 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 that has a mixture of good music and 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.
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 its 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.
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 listen 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! It's one of the best songs of all time.
Wow. Just wow. This is such an amazingly beautiful song. The second time I heard the song, I couldn't help but obsess over it! "No light, no light in your bright blue eyes. I never knew daylight could be so violent." Just amazingly beautiful. Congratulations to 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!
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 hallowed 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 hollow 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. Its haunting yet quick-paced beat gives me chills every time I listen to it. Florence outdoes herself with this inspiring piece.
I don't know why people even rank her songs. I love every single one of them. It's like "The Curse of Florence and The Machine," which entails loving every song she has ever sung. But "Between Two Lungs" is one of the first of her songs I heard, and I love it because of that. The syncopation is, I think, one of the most amazing things she's done so far.
This girl has lungs! She can belt like a beast and then become airy and beautiful. Her music is so awe-inspiring.
In my opinion, the best.
This song 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 1,000.
This is the most haunting song I have ever heard. I listened to it on repeat for hours. I discovered it while watching the Revenge TV 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 number 1. The song is so dark and enchanting. Just listen to it! You won't be able to forget a song like this one. And its tunes are just so amazing! Genius!
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 disappointed by the new song! I really love it and I cannot wait for the release day! Our Queen of Indie Pop and Rock is Back!
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!
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, it makes your heart race faster and faster.
Should be number 1. It's definitely their best song. Very unique style.
By far my favorite song. Should be in the top 5.
This is possibly her 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 poured into this song, although most people may not realize it.
The best song of hers by far! The notes she hits are on point, and the lyrics are all so beautiful.
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 song sounds like she's on her way to tear down someone's 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 kind of sound. I 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 fighting! Best soundtrack for Snow White and the Huntsman! Definitely going to watch this movie because of this magical song by Florence and the Machine! Love them. This is how true artists must be!
Because this did not appear on either album, I've never really felt the incentive to listen to it. But once I did, I found it awe-inspiring. The lyrics have such meaning and emotion that you form an emotional 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 Deluxe...it isn't one of her headliners, which is a shame, because IT IS PERFECTION. No fan of Florence should be able to call himself or herself a true Flo until he or she has embraced the art of Swimming.
Excellent song with heavier arena rock and lyrics. It sounds kind of unusual for a Florence + the Machine song, but it perfectly fits them in the end, expressing a more powerful and shivering aspect of Florence, and satisfying those who wanted something less light than their previous songs. Actually, everybody goes on saying that Shake It Out, Cosmic Love, You've Got the Love, and Dog Days Are Over are their best, but I never really liked any of them. I think the three real Florence + the Machine 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 believe this song is 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.
Born in '52 - I grew up in the '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 into this new world. Soulful, grown-up woman voice and wonderful song structure with a tight band cooking along. This is the real deal.
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.
Though perhaps not quite as anthemic as "Shake It Out," this song possesses an inimitably ethereal, 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 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 and musical transitions, marked invariably by the reiteration of the song's title line, is to be expelled through a pinhole in an interdimensional wall. The fluid of you bursting out in all directions on the other side in a new but strangely familiar world of darkness and bioluminescence.
But the heights of this work of art, its ultimate zenith, are only fully realized near its conclusion when the halting and heaving completely give way to a supremely invigorating aphotic canticle that could only be resisted by the most unimaginative and unfeeling among us. To call this piece of art a "song" is to neuter what it really is: an otherworldly experience.
Fell in love with this song since the Jennifer's Body movie.
This needs to be in the top ten! Wake up, people.
My favourite song. All her sass has come out!
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 irresistible beat. It gets stuck in my head so often, and I love it more every time. Go Florence!
What?! How can anything top... Louder than sirens, louder than bells, sweeter than heaven, and hotter than hell?
I'm surprised that this song isn't in the top ten! I am so in love with the vocals, for they are very powerful and kind of swoon me at the same time. The brass, drums, and vocals are all beautifully twined together. It definitely makes me (internally) scream with excitement.
This feels like catharsis, vindication, and rapture all rolled up in one glorious track. Florence's vocals soar, the drums are pounding, and the brass section drives it home. Brilliant.
This song feels like catharsis, vindication, and rapture all rolled up in one glorious track. The brass section brings it home. Brilliant.
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.
Love the comparison of her love with the Samson and Delilah story, and the Philistines. So 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.
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 the love you! Congrats to Florence and The Machine... Amazing job...
I love this song. It's so addicting! I think it's beautiful and should be higher up. 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! I simply love it. The effect it produces when you listen to the howls and the desperate cries is simply terrific and lovely!
Florence's vocals here are awesome. I'm getting a medieval vibe from this song. Something reminiscent and historical. Plus, you can also dance to 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!
