Top 10 Best Within Temptation Songs

The Top Ten
1 Angels

It's a wonderful song. This was the second song from Within Temptation that I heard and ever since, I haven't been able to get enough of the band. It definitely means a lot to me. Sharon's vocals are wonderful as usual and I really, really wish I could sing like her in this song...

One of the first Within Temmptation songs I've heard and I completely fell head over heels with it. I can really connect to the lyrics as if Within Temptation is telling my own story...

The first song I listen to within temptation and the best.. This haunting song I best and second would be ice queen... Lyrics is so awesome... This song totally rocks

2 Memories

This is the first song I ever heard by Within Temptation and ever since, I've been hooked! It's lyrics were so spectacular... it's different from the other songs of today. The lyrics actually mean something and really make you think. I love this song to bits and will never forget this song. It's really changed my life... now I have Within Temptation as part of my life and suddenly my life has become better... it's funny how just one song can do that to you.

Beautiful lyrics and totally amazing song! The music video is even better, which really haunts you and make you feel for the song. Many different experiences can be tied to this song. Indeed in life we have too many beautiful memories to cherish, and this song speaks about how they could be brought back, even if they are only in your mind.

Such a beautiful song I could listen to it over and over a billion times. I almost have! This song came on my Pandora where I wanted to listen to it again so I looked it up and found within temptation yay!

3 The Howling

This song should be #3 and right above it, at #2 should be "What have You Done Now" the Keith Caputo version. Wow! What a power packed punch that would be! Two of the best WT songs ever. These are the songs that got me hooked. Then, next thing you know, I'm listening to Nightwish, Lacuna Coil, Kamelot, Tobias Samet "The Scarecrow" w/ Alice Cooper singing lead on one great track. Oh man, I have been in musical heaven ever since.

Initially, this wasn't my favorite by them... but now it's at he top of my list. Sharon's vocals are really powerful in this one and I will never forget it. It definitely deserves its place.

Excellent song - lovers of Evanescence will enjoy this masterpiece as it will feel a little familiar, the rugged vocals and that gothic symphonic rock feel.

4 Iron

Iron is the most shining pearl on the beautiful necklace of gothic rock & metal. this song has everything and though there are other WT songs with personal meaning for me, this one is artistically the best!

Iron is the best track on the unforgiving it is the best within temptation song hands down ( other than the howling and ice queen. In a word EPIC!

Love this song - it's a much more rockier anthem with some great riffs and an interlude to die for. One of the few true epic rock songs of WT you can blast out in your car!

5 Frozen

The reason why I find this song so very tragic and heartbreaking is because it FINALLY lets me think about of Octavius, standing in front of Jedediah's gravesite, letting a lot of tears fall down his face, and he says to his now dead friend, as he is crying very hard,

"I love you, Jedediah. And, I'll miss you so much! "

No other song could let me imagine that, but only this song did, because of the dark and cold melody.


This is quite underrated... Should be on of the top ten or at least top 12... I love the song and the video, I love the lyrics too but most of all I LOVE Sharon's voice... The only within temptation song which I have memorized... Within temptation is one of my favorite bands!

I think this should be higher than top 6. Besides the catchy tune, Sharon's wonderful voice, this song has a very deep meaning. It tells the story of the pain of sacrificing and not telling the reason why you did it for someone.

6 Shot in the Dark

Definitely better than Memories... Or as good as Angels... Should be in the top 3... Wonder if its me who is mad or is it the people having lost their touch on music laugh out loud

Can't believe within temptation without Sharon,
Even nobody can believe this group without "shot in the dark"... its really summit

This is the first song I heard by this artist and is still my favorite. It should be in the top!

7 Let Us Burn
8 Jillian (I'd Give My Heart)

This is the song I stumbled upon when I was shuffling through the track listing of all WT albums. The name caught my interest so decided to give it a go. And boy does it sound so wonderful. I fell for it from the very intro itself. And the whole song is just extravagant. This deserves to be on the top 20 or 10 at least.

I love this song so much! Especially the bridge and that mindschocking climax! Whoever Jillian is I love you for inspiring this song!

Chorus is awesome. Other than that, it's an average song. Still beats other songs from the same artist.

9 What Have You Done

That's the song that would normally attract someone to Within Temptation. At least that's what I think, In my opinion. Has everything you're looking for in a single song.

It's a combination of lyrics and melody.
This is like the perfect song of Within Temptation
When you listen to it, you just can't get enough of it.

Love the dynamics of this song and the melody of the two vocals, for me best song! And the lyrics are quite good!

10 Hand of Sorrow

I won't comment how amazing sharon sound. I just want people know how the piano intro make my your soul go to sorrow, the violin, the guitar so amazing... Send me to another world with a temptation in my mind. Why it's here? It must be the very best of WT. It's number ONE! It's the price of a masterpiece

I can't believe this masterpiece is only in #10! I've always loved WT and before I heard this song, I also thought Angels is the best song then memories, and frozen... then, I got to listen to THIS and I was like hell no this song is a MASTERPIECE!

Sharon's vocals cast a striking harmony to the orchestral and electric elements on the song. The lyrics are just as vibrant, and coupled with her angelic voice, makes the song damn near perfect!

The Contenders
11 Fire and Ice

The contrast brought about by the lyrics emphasizes the struggle of light and darkness conveyed in the song. Her voice brings real pain that really resonates with the listener.

Why is this song so far down the list? It's gorgeous, had it stuck in my head for the last 2 weeks!

12 Silver Moonlight
13 All I Need

Ok, I admitted, I have heard this song for the first on The Vampire Diaries, but it was also the first song from a T.V. show I have ever searched because it is such a masterpiece. And because of it, I started listening to WT, and look at me now! I have been fan of them for almost 4 years and I am not planning on stopping! And every song they have it is brilliant and I love it.
I have All I Need as my alarm song, and it is the best part of the day, being woken up by WT...

It's a very beautiful song. I first heard it on the vampire diaries. Elena and Damon looked so good together. I think that this song was written just for them. Any other song wouldn't have complemented their dance. It's a very emotional song. It touched my very soul when I first heard it. It deserves number 1 spot on this list or at least top 3.

Deals with a struggling relationship, trying to make things work. that's what I am having right now, and I could listen to this song for hours.

This song also was played for the Vampire Diaries.

14 Our Solemn Hour

I don't really know why, but this song has attracted me from the beginning. I've loved it since I first heard it. Something about the lyrics and the symphonic quality is just phenomenal.

Amazing symphonic masterpiece! Stand My Ground and Somewhere are my next favorites. I really love WT, their music and especially their lyrics, they are just deep and emotional.

The first of their songs I've ever heard... And its actually still my favorite! A GREAT song. I've heard all of their songs and this one just draws me toward it

15 Faster

The best composition, best lyrics, so eventually the best song... Simply love it

This song is awesome and is my favorite, I love the lyrics and all the energy of them, I also love her voice

Nice forever song

16 Ice Queen

This must be the best and most famous song, and her voice is fair like an angel's. I love everything about this song; it's mood that is pure and powerful, her perfect pitch, the instrumental pieces - everything that makes one feel completely aligned with Mother Earth. Makes me want to stumble out in the woods and sing the song on top of my lungs. When I do listen to Ice Queen I listen to it over and over. And EACH time; the music and her voice send CHILLS right down my spine.

This song got me into Within Temptation. It's so beautiful and perfectly balances rock with some nice slow parts. Deserves to be higher!

I love her voice in this song.. Reminds me of the woods.. It doesn't deserve this position.. Should have been at a higher place!

17 Lost

I loved Within temptation from this song. It is absolutely amazing. The lyrics, the solo, her tone.. Everything in this song is just beautiful. This song should really get higher votes and be in the top ten!

How is this song not No. 1?! It's so meaningful, her voice is beautiful, the music and tune is lovely.. Must listen with Lyrics!

Totally my favorite song by them, It MUST be on number 1.

18 In the Middle of the Night

Wait wait wait... This is all the way down here? What? This is one of the best songs I've ever heard!

But this is such a great song!
Her voice is pure perfection and the lyrics are fantastic.

Fantastic upbeat and epic song that takes you up and fly.

19 Say My Name

Fantastic song, sung with such passion and emotion, I get goose-bumps!

20 Paradise (What About Us?)

This deserves number 1!
Before I discovered Within Temptation, Tarja (Nightwish) was my favorite band, I mean come ON!
With Tarja's operatic voice, Sharon's angelic voice, the awesome lyrics AND the amazing music, how can this be number 29?

Best duet ever by two females. Definite #1. Would be a supergroup if they stayed together.

Number 25? don't make me laugh/ cry. Much better that that, love it.

21 Dangerous

I love this song. It is very upbeat, and the chorus is amazing. My new favorite song ever.

Great song. Howard Jones vocals are awesome in this as well.

One of the best male female duets in the entire genre!

22 Mother Earth

This songs simply makes your heart dance. It's been my favourite song by them since the beginning, this I a masterpiece. Actually, even though I love other songs as much as this one, I consider this is their only masterpiece.

What are you doing all the way down here? That being sad this song shows its true mastery once you listen to it multiple times, with amazing vocals all the way to the hauntingly beautiful music as well as the deep lyrics.

It's a very very good song. The flute at the beginning just make me feel like I'm playing a video game. Lyrics are good too. Totally love this song. The live version of black Symphony tour is just stunning.

23 It's the Fear

It is because of this song that I first discovered Within Temptation, and fell in love with their music. I have become a huge fan since. Sharon den Adel vocals are haunting yet beautiful all at the same time.

24 See Who I Am

See who I am, is one of the best songs made by within temptation in my opinion. It has some strong beat behind the lovely vocals by sharon.
The lyrics are also awesome. This song made me love WT..

My top 10:
Truth beneath the rose
See who I am
Stand my ground
Our Solemn Hour
Say My Name
Hand of Sorrow
Heart of Everything
And I can't figure out the other two. Sorry :(
These people rule!

Unbelievable lyrics and sung by an unbelievable singer SdA.

25 Stand My Ground

It deserves a higher place on this list. The combination of a heavenly melody and a powerful feeling is what makes this song so special. It's one of Within Temptation's signature songs for a reason.

This is their first song I've heard as I listen Evanescence songs, I accidentally watched this and for the first time hearing it, It gets stuck in my head. This song is way better than Angel. This should be the leading song

First song of theirs I ever heard! At first, I just thought they were okay. Not great. A while later, I looked them up again. Deceiver of Fools. I just went from there! Love this song and band!
