Top 10 Best Poets of the Fall Songs

The Top Ten
1 Carnival of Rust

My boyfriend spoke of this song highly. He always said that it's his favourite song of all time. I checked it out, and it became MY favourite song too. I just LOVE this song. I always listen to this song. It's got a beautiful combination of soul and rock. It always reminds me of my boyfriend. I'm glad to find this song on the 1st rank.

Not only is this song the best song from Poets of the Fall, but also one of the best songs ever made. This song has it all, from mesmerizing guitars to top-notch vocals and an overall aura that cannot be denied. I have yet to find anyone who has disliked this song. Carnival of Rust, for the win. This definitely is music at its finest!

It's the best song I have ever heard. The way it starts and the way it ends, the voice, everything in this song is so special. Sometimes, when the world is so over you, listen to this song. It will surely help because only some songs have the power to touch the soul.

2 Late Goodbye

This is just one of the best songs not only of POTF but among all rock bands for ages. Love the lyrics, which is actually a poem. "And we keep driving into the night." You don't only listen to it, but also try to sing by yourself, don't you? Best lyrics. And obviously, Carnival of Rust would be the 2nd best.

A mesmerizing song. It makes me forget myself and takes me to another world. No matter how many times you listen to it, it still sounds the same. Love it.

It's got an ethereal quality about it. An awesome song with great acoustics and a dream in itself. Lovely lyrics which can be visualized effortlessly.

3 Cradled in Love

This song should be in the number 2 position. In fact, I believe it is better than Carnival of Rust. I am just putting it in the number 2 position because Carnival was first in its own league, otherwise, this song is far better. At least to me. I heard Carnival and I learned it on guitar after a week. But after listening to this, I practiced 18 hours non-stop to learn it. You can imagine how much I liked it.

I would have been very, very, very surprised if I had seen this song any lower in the list. I can understand why 'Carnival of Rust' is number 1, but 'Cradled in Love' is equally good, if not better. It is one of those rare songs that you fall in love with, for life. You will listen to it over and over again, at different points in your life, and it will make sense every single time. Thank you POTF, for this incredible song.

In my opinion, this is one of the best songs by the band, if not the best. Personally, I think all the songs by Poets of the Fall rock! It's really hard to choose which of their songs is the best. My Personal Top Five by the Band is (Not In Order):

1. Late Goodbye
2. Carnival of Rust
3. Cradled in Love
4. Fire
5. Lift.

And I recently listened to Psychosis! And it rocks! They rock so awesomely that it's hard to choose one song.

4 Dreaming Wide Awake

This song was me and my girlfriend's favorite song to sing together until the day that she was taken from this world too soon. I sang it at her funeral before kissing her forehead and telling her that I love her one last time. When I hear this song, so many strong emotions flow through me.

This song is just so too creepily good to describe in words.

Those who have broken hearts can only feel the meaning and depth of this song.

5 Lift

POTF are the real maestros of guitar. Each song has truly out-of-this-world guitar riffs. But the one in "Lift" is the king of riffs. Moreover, the lyrics are special.

I know it is difficult for any POTF fan to choose the best, but I personally feel this is it.

Actually, this should have been named Illusion and Dream because that's what one gets after listening to this. Really great song and deserves top position.

Lift is an amazing song that shows how someone can make you see the light at the end of the tunnel. It also shows how some of the worries are just in your head and there are people who can bring you back to reality so you can once again enjoy life.

6 Passion Colors Everything

One of the hidden gems of POTF. Very underrated song! The lyrics, the pick-up, the highs, the way Marco sings it. Just orgasmic!

"The face I wear behind my grin"

"Money doesn't bring me joy, it's more like darling dead weight"

"It's underrated how we overrate"

It deserves to be at least in the first top ten songs of this list!

This song is just filled with so much life, it'd be a shame to not have it somewhere at the top of this list!

7 Revolution Roulette

This song has the best bass line I have ever heard.

8 Illusion & Dream

Carnival of Rust is an amazing song, and with an even better music video. But this song is so great too. Just listen to it. You will certainly like it if you like Carnival of Rust.

I came to know the difference between illusion and dream after listening to this song, awesome song! The guitar work is too good! Would love to hear the next album soon!

It's so beautiful, especially the starting. It just feels so good to hear it. Gives a pause to mind no matter how disturbed I am. Love it! No words to define its beauty. Seriously.

9 Temple of Thought

A beautiful piece of songwriting with a vocal melody rolling over a counter-melody. This deserves much more exposure than it has ever had.

The lyrics are absolute gold! Would easily make the perfect wedding song. It's so beautiful and filled with positivity that it stands quite starkly in contrast to contemporary sad music. Top of the list for me.

This song is just so amazing! I used to love Carnival of Rust and Lift, but since the day I listened to this song, it's on the top of my "Most Played" list. Awesome song! Deserves to be on the top spot!

10 Where Do We Draw the Line

I didn't even think to listen to this song until I saw everyone's comments on here. Before then, I had listened to pretty much everything else, especially the Alchemy album. Now, this is my favorite song, and it really bums me out that they didn't think to put this on what is pretty much their greatest hits album.

This is really an awesome song. I've heard it many times. The lyrics are superb. You can really compare it to Cradled in Love. And yes, many people haven't heard this song. So, I would urge them, this song really deserves a top 5 spot, if not top 3.

I think it is the 2nd best introspective song from the stables of POTF, after Carnival of Rust. The only reason for it being second last is that no one has ever heard it. Just give it a try and vote, you won't be disappointed.

The Contenders
11 Sleep

This is the POTF song I like the most. It is very touching and it forces you to listen to it again and again. Although the first one that I heard was different, searching on YouTube took me to this one. I love it.

This song helps me drift off into the sweetest sleep no matter how hard my day turned out to be! It's like a great lullaby! Do listen to it!

This song can give you peace and comfort! I really was impressed the first time I heard it! You really can rest in peace then for sure!

12 Locking Up the Sun

This song absolutely deserves to be in the top five! This song is one of the best rock songs ever. A good combination of great riffs and vocals.

Makes me feel hopeful and heroic.

13 Overboard

Great song, a symphony of acoustic and electric solo, combined with ecstatic drum beats and, as expected of POTF, beautiful and meaningful lyrics. This was the best song of the album, no doubt about that, next to Lift and Illusion & Dream.

Awesome beat, awesome vocal. An awesome experience overall. In my opinion, one of the very best POTF has ever composed. Ranks right up there with 'Carnival of Rust' and 'Late Goodbye'.

One of the best I've ever listened to. Should definitely be at the 3rd place rather.

14 The Poet and the Muse

Poets of the Fall is an extremely underrated band. On top of that, what I feel is their best song, is completely unknown (as it does not feature in any album). This song is amazing in so many ways. The lyrics are perfect, the vocals are beautiful, and the guitar solo is just heavenly! If poets were more well-known, this song has the potential to be the next Stairway to Heaven.

Should be in the top 10. Tells you a whole story (see Alan Wake) in just one song! Brilliant!

I don't know why this song is not in top 10 but what I feel is this song is amazing.

15 The Beautiful Ones

One of the best POTF songs ever. Should be in the top three. Makes me emotional, thoughtful, and pleased when I listen to this song. Great lyrics, outstanding vocal of Marko Saaresto, peaceful background make the song a masterpiece. The lyrics have such kind of pleasure or power of attraction anyone would try to listen to this song again and again. Really love this song.

This song is so heart-touchingly beautiful, so hypnotic that you'll be on the brink of tears. POTF just keeps amazing us with songs like these. This one definitely, without a doubt, needs to go up.

So hypnotic and surreal - definitely their best song yet! Similar to Given and Denied, but occupying a whole new level of awesomeness!

16 Sorry Go 'Round

Oh god, how is this so low on the list! Definite top ten. True POTF fans would realize it suits them a lot more than other songs. Give it a thumbs up!

What is this? Really, guys, 23? Come on, people. Ever heard the drums? This beats LP and Metallica. I've never heard such beautiful drums. This song deserves to be in the top 10.

Checked the lyrics? They're cool enough.

17 Smokes and Mirrors

Deep and ephemeral song, with great lyrics and instruments, should be in top ten.

This song is amazing!

18 15 Min Flame
19 More
20 Given and Denied

Carnival of Rust and Cradled in Love are without doubt really awesome songs, but because they're already on top, and this extremely, if not equally, awesome song is not where it's supposed to be, I'm voting! Wish I could vote for Sleep and Late Goodbye too. Fifteen Minute Flame... Ah, there are so many of them!

This is the best song ever. No wonder, it is from the best band! The meaning of the lyrics and the music is mind-blowing. This is my favorite song, and I love the poets for giving the world such meaningful music. All hail Marko, Olli, Captain, Jaska, Jani, and Jari (aka Poets of the Fall)!

Beautiful and amazing song. The lyrics are just wonderful because it talks about how you should spend your life. You could die any day. "Fall like a leaf in the wind on the ocean of blue like your eyes in the twilight theater"... Plain genius.

21 War

I found this song while playing Alan Wake, and I fell in love the moment the music started. This has got to be my all-time favorite song, hands down. It's playing on my iPod no matter the mood. The different slow and faster pace within the song just amplify the sheer beauty of it. Wonderful song, deserves to be #1!

Such an amazing song, it is really incredible. I listen to it daily because the lyrics remind me that people actually care about me. It's my favourite song by Poets of the Fall.

War is just an amazing song. The lyrics are wonderful, the melody too (like all POTF songs). It's with this one and The Poet and His Muse that I discovered the band, and now it's my favorite band. Go listen to that song!

22 All the Way / 4U

The song slowly transforms from a slow and soft melody to an emotional and passionate rock ballad. The piano, guitar, and Marko's voice... No words to describe it. Would you go all the way for your love?

The way the slow tempo mixes with heavy, powerful music... I love it. I keep on listening to this song. It never grows old for me. I just love this song from my heart. I wish it would make it to the top. Carnival of Rust is great too.

I'm currently in love with this song, especially the second part of it, so powerful, emotional, sweet, great. I have no words. Their songs enlighten me.

23 Roses

I'm a huge Poet of the Fall fan. I've heard every piece of music they've ever made or performed, and I'm immensely disappointed that Roses isn't even on the list. It's easily one of their greatest creations. The lyrics are deep, the guitars are beautiful, and the vocals are captivating. This song deserves to be in the top 10.

I love this song so much! Especially the chorus and the intro. It's so beautiful. Please vote for this song and help it make it to the top ten. It's my favorite song.

Such an amazing and addictive song! I just want to listen to it over and over again.

24 Someone Special

I love this song, an evergreen song you can listen to on any day, any time. I am now listening to this song for 3 years and still get goosebumps. I would love to see "Someone Special" in the top ten. You have missed something in your life if you have not listened to this song.

This is where it all started. You don't know Poets of the Fall if you haven't heard this song. Mark makes a mark. Go for it, folks. Beg, borrow, steal, but you've got to get this feel.

Blasphemy! If all this while this number wasn't on the list... All I can say is... It's blasphemy! This song defines them. This is Poets of the Fall.

25 Daze

So contagious. Once you get hit by its music, it's impossible not to think of it or not listen to it again. And again. And again.

Believe me, I am a fortunate victim of its music and the band as a whole. This track right now has over 300 plays on my iTunes play count. Bless you, Poets of the Fall. Thank you for existing.

The song is new, fresh, and addictive. As always, poets have meaningful lyrics and the magic of Marko's voice and his variations is heavenly. It will go high on the list, I am damn sure.

Should definitely be in this list somewhere.
