Top 10 Best Bloc Party Songs

Bloc Party's music is a captivating concoction of energetic riffs, powerful lyrics, and melodies that stick with you long after the song has ended. Their music has crossed oceans and won hearts, offering solace to some and energizing others, allowing them to dance through the night. You probably remember the first time you heard them, the song that made you a fan, the tunes that have been your companion through various phases of life, be it moments of joy, sorrow, love, or loss.
The Top Ten
1 Helicopter

The best guitar riff Bloc Party has ever written along with the weirdest lyrics to go along with it. Great song, number 1 easily. Banquet 2nd.

This song kicks ass! My top Bloc Party songs would be (in no order):

Helicopter, Flux, So Here We Are, Banquet, Skeleton, This Modern Love

This is their best song, but "The Prayer" should be 2nd on this list, not 7th!

2 Banquet

This song is just the meaning of cool. The song builds and builds and leaves you with the same great lasting impression, even if you're hearing it for the hundredth time.

This song is ridiculously catchy. I'm addicted to it.

I don't think I even need to explain.

3 This Modern Love

I heard it first on How I Met Your Mother and I have been hooked ever since. Everything about this song is perfect: the guitar riffs, the drums, and finally, the message this song conveys to the listeners. It should be number 1 without a doubt.

It's about someone who loves someone else but doesn't want them to know because they know that nothing's going to come from it. This modern love wastes me!

Heard this on How I Met Your Mother and loved it. The chorus gives me chills every single time without fail. Possibly the best song by Bloc Party.

4 Like Eating Glass

Crazy guitar effects, drumming insanity, and perfection of bass timing. All kept in a subtle tone. This song is #1 on my list of songs of all time.

Listened to this on repeat for 2 hours during a commute from London to Wales. Still haven't grown tired. Silent Alarm is a fantastic album.

Awesome song for working out to, as it's really uplifting, and probably has the best drumming I have ever heard.

5 Hunting for Witches

Again, another song like The Prayer, but in my opinion, I think they managed to make this song raw but also keep that guitar sound from many tracks off of Silent Alarm.

Although Weekend in the City wasn't too good compared to Silent Alarm, it's still a damn good song and pretty catchy.

Epic guitar and beat. So catchy!

6 Blue Light

This song is interesting in how it's slow in parts and fast in others but, on the whole, is a very relaxing song with very clear lyrics and a memorable melody.

7 We are Not Good People
8 Octopus

Love the breathing/panting at the start. The background frantic riff going on throughout the song is a plus.

Strangely didn't like it at first. Grown on me to be my favorite after Helicopter.

It's a damn shame that it ranks 28. Should be at least top ten.

9 Flux

I love how Flux is an interesting take at a slight variation on their tunes by somewhat mixing dance and indie. Also, great lyrics in the chorus and fun music video.

10 Kreuzberg

Another one like Sunday. The melody just gets under your skin and makes you feel nostalgic for something you can't quite make out.

The Contenders
11 Waiting for the 7:18

My most beloved song - someone said once that Kele is one of the most outstanding poets of our century - absolutely true for me. Every line of this song means a lot, most of all I like "If I could do it again, I'd make more mistakes, I'd climb more trees, I'd eat and pick more wild blackberries". Pure masterpieceā€¦ Magical music completes this song and makes it perfect. Wish I could hear it live someday.

12 I Still Remember

Simply because the riff that plays at the start stays true throughout the whole song and probably has the most memorable chorus out of them all.

13 Signs
14 Ratchet
15 Two More Years

Again, another one of Bloc Party's that starts great and retains that greatness throughout. Also, the best intro to a song ever.

Awesome song, and so is the remix version.

16 The Prayer

I think Bloc Party really showed their raw creative side with this song but still kept true to their roots and seamlessly made the whole song flow.

Such an underrated song. The chorus is fantastic, as is the intro.

The first song from Bloc Party that I heard. It was in NHL 2K8.

17 Little Thoughts

My favorite because it's got a great melody, bass, everything. Also, although I like Bloc Party's newer stuff, I love how this song represents their roots, and it's like a throwback to bands like Sum 41, Blink 182. I love how the guitar is prominent with that distinctive riff which remains in the chorus and even the build-up and end.

18 Skeleton

Represents the soul of Bloc Party: nice short riffs, dance, power song.

19 So Here We Are

There's so much grace in this song. The intro's also magnificent. I'm just surprised why isn't this song in the top 10!

I think this is the most beautiful song off Silent Alarm. So underrated.

20 Song for Clay (Disappear Here)

Amazing intro, some weird but cool lyrics. Nice song to replay.

21 Positive Tension
22 The Once and Future King

Glorious guitar rhythms coupled with fun, energizing drum patterns. That's already enough to get me hooked.

Anyone know what album this is on? It's by far my favourite and isn't even on iTunes!

23 One Month Off
24 Truth
25 Sunday

This song really makes you feel things. The melody gives such a somber yet good feeling.
