Top Ten Nightwish Singles

Of course, Nightwish's singles don't nearly represent their entire greatness. They are an album band, and of course their single releases consist of shorter and conventionally structured songs. That's not to say that these aren't amazing pieces of music (they are) - but only that they don't cover all of the band's trademark sounds and qualities.

The Top Ten

1 Sleeping Sun

In my humble opinion, their second best song after "Ghost Love Score", and their ultimate ballad. The legend says, there are people that don't get goosebumps when Tarja sings "Oh how I wish to go down with the sun / Sleeping, weeping with you", but honestly, I don't believe it. - Martin_Canine

2 Nemo
3 The Crow, The Owl and the Dove
4 Walking in the Air
5 Bless the Child
6 The Siren

To be honest, I am pretty surprised they release this wonderful song as a regular single, as I always regarded this as one of the group's most experimental moments, with a slight oriental touch. - Martin_Canine

7 Ever Dream
8 Élan
9 Endless Forms Most Beautiful
10 Sacrament of Wilderness

The Contenders

11 The Carpenter
12 Deep Silent Complete
13 Wish I Had an Angel
14 Kuolema Tekee Taiteilijan - Nightwish
15 Eva
16 Amaranth
17 Erämaan Viimeinen

This song is a vocal version of "Last of the Wilds" from "Dark Passion Play".
While the original is instrumental, this version has vocals by Jonsu Salomaa. - Martin_Canine
