Top Ten Sarah McLachlan Songs

The Top Ten
1 Angel

This song is absolutely breathtaking. It makes me cry and feel joy, sadness, and love each time I listen to it. It's one of the few songs that can make me feel all these emotions at once.

This is the song that touched my heart. Very highly recommended.

I love this song beyond description.. It touches the deepest part of my soul and reminds me of love ones passed.

The best song ever. I cry every time I listen to her song and others because it reminds me of my pet's death, and you should all vote for this song! Am I right, guys?

2 Fallen

This song is so beautiful. It showcases her vocal talent. In this song, she is so good at making you feel the pain of someone who is down in a low place because of a mistake. It's such a beautiful piece of music.

In my opinion, it's probably the greatest song from Sarah so far. I really can't think of a more devoted musician when it comes to delivering a song.

This song is actually perfect! It's nice to listen to this when you're all alone, and no one is left for you, and when you feel the emptiness around yourself. It's totally awesome.

3 Possession

One of the best songs I've ever heard! It's undoubtedly nothing short of a masterpiece. It's beautifully written and performed. Every single thing about the song is perfection. From the haunting beginning to the emotion-filled chorus, to the symphony of guitars in the instrumental break, it just sticks with you. You know a song is good when you don't get sick of it after listening to it for the 17,272,717th time! It's also deep and can be perceived and interpreted in many ways. I love Sarah McLachlan, and many of her songs are amazing! But Possession is by far her best, in my opinion. Truly an underrated song.

4 Adia

Adia, I do believe I've failed you by not voting for you enough. You deserve much more than this.

It's easy. We all falter. It doesn't matter.

Because we are born innocent: Adia.

5 I Will Remember You

This is one of my most favorite songs. It's sweet and haunting, bringing back tender moments with a twinge of sadness.

When I think of my husband, I listen to this song and Angel.

6 Building a Mystery

One of the best songs of all time.

7 Sweet Surrender

Another fantastic example of why Sarah is the one!

This song is absolutely breathtaking.

8 Vox

An early proof of Sarah's skills.

9 Song for a Winter's Night
10 Fumbling Towards Ecstasy

This was the first Sarah song I ever heard and it made me fall in love with her music.

Great track from her, by far the best album.

The Contenders
11 When She Loved Me

How isn't this number 1? It's amazing.

12 Black & White
13 Silence

One of the most beautiful songs out there. She uses several elements and sounds to give the song a full, meaningful sound. It's sad and beautiful all at the same time - a great song!

The best song ever. My number 1 of all time. It never gets old.

14 Fear

Very unlike most of her other music, this song's instrumentation is kept breathy and ethereal, largely due to the almost total omission of a bottom end. Her vocals are sung almost entirely in her falsetto range, with an emphasis on a hall-like reverb effect. This lends a feeling of eerie timelessness to the song. The subject matter is primal and fundamental, and the language used is poetic, displaying a gift for casually sublime metaphor. Easily my favorite from her library.

Different from most of her songs, it is a bit strange. And that its oddness makes the song so unforgettable.

15 Hold On

My favorite Sarah McLachlan song of all time. It's slow and soft, with a lot of meaning in the words. I especially love the chorus and the second section of the song. Absolutely beautiful.

16 Answer
17 Stupid

One of her best pieces ever: lyrics, music, performance, and also the video.

18 World On Fire
19 Ice Cream

"Your love is better than ice cream
"Better than anything else that I've tried
"And your love is better than ice cream
"But everyone here knows how to fight"

Not her best song, but it deserves to be on the list.

20 Push
21 The Rainbow Connection
22 Loving You Is Easy

This song is just wonderful. It makes me feel so happy, and it's a very jovial track!

Why is this number 20 on her list? It should be in the top 20 songs of all time.

23 Forgiveness

This is such an amazing song from her album Laws of Illusion. It has such beautiful lines. My favorite line from this song is, "This house of cards had to fall."

24 Ben's Song

So bleak, yet so beautiful. Her masterpiece.

25 Dear God
