Top Ten Sarah McLachlan Songs

The Top Ten
1 Angel

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

This is the song that touched my heart, very very recommended

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

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

I always feel calm every now and then when I hear this song. It's such a touching song ever. RIP to the guy in that hotel room. Sarah has brought me home by this song

2 Fallen

To me her best song. Pretty much you got the top 10 right, I would re-order it a little but yeah.
Not an original, but I would put her cover of Tom Waits "Old '55" on top 10.

This song is is so beautiful. It shows her vocal talent. In this song she is so good at making you feel the pain of someone down in a low place because of a mistake. 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! Its nice to listen to this when you're all alone and no one left for you and when you feel the emptyness around yourself...
Its totally awesome

3 Possession

One of the best songs I've ever heard! It's not doubt nothing short of 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's good when you don't get sick of it after the 17272717th time listening to it! It's also deep and can be perceived and interpreted in so many ways. I love Sarah mclachlan and many of her songs are amazing! But possession is by far her best in my opinion. Truly underrated song. :).

It's the "Mirrorball" version in particular that I believe is her best record to date. It's nice to see this song at the third position, but here's my take on the top 2 songs: "Fallen" is good, but Afterglow had a few better songs, namely "Time" and "World on Fire. " "Angel" is simply excellent and one of the best songs from Surfacing, but it's fairly overrated, not to mention that I think "Witness" and "Black & White" are better. I'm still glad to see "Possession" at #3.

Absolutely the best song of her career, in my opinion. The range of her voice raises goose bumps and the instrumentals are equally as sublime.

Has so many underlying emotions and layers which is one of the most skillful and important factor in music. This song well um possesses me...

4 Adia

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

Its easy, we all falter... It doesn't matter

Cause we are born innocent...Adia

She's a talented singer

5 I Will Remember You

This is one of my most favorite songs. Sweet and haunting brings back tender moments with a twinge of saddness.

When I think of my husband I listen to this song and the angel song

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 breath-taking.

The best, should be number 1

8 Vox

An early proof of Sarah's skills.

This the best song I,ve ever heard...thanks

unique song

9 Song for a Winter's Night

it really isn't

10 Fumbling Towards Ecstasy

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

Great track from her by distance far best album.

describes life perfectly

The Contenders
11 When She Loved Me

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

12 Black & White

- underrated song from the album Surfacing
- but I love all the songs from Surfacing
- am biased.
- so sue me.

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, in that its 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, which lends a feeling of eerie timelessness. The subject matter is primal and fundamental; the language used is poetic and displays a gift for causally sublime metaphor. Easily my favorite from her library.

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

15 Hold On

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

16 Answer

This song changed my life!

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 Forgiveness

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

23 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 #20 in HER list? It should be in the top #20 songs of all time.

24 Ben's Song

So bleak, yet so beautiful. Her Masterpiece.

25 Dear God
