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 hear to this song... Its got BEAUTIFUL combination of soul and rock... It always reminds me of my boyfriend... I'm glad to find this song on the 1st rank..

Just incredible song... Its one of my favorites... Cool vocals... I nearly cried when I heard this song. The guitars are also awesome.

I always respect the songs that have well chosen words for the sake of the Global Life (either facing Reality problems or hoping for a better future). Besides, the music is outstanding. A Marvelous Song. Respect; Marko

2 Cradled in Love

This song is just amazing. The lyrics, the composition, the vocal, everything is neat. It portrays love & loss with such emotion that will make your heart ache. I know, POTF has some pretty awesome songs. But this one deserves to be in the top ten, at the very least.

Oh come on! This song must easily be in the top 5! POTF's finest song in terms of lyrics! This is their best song after CARNIVAL OF RUST! Excellent lyrics, beautiful and soulful vocals by Marko, fine guitar work, melodious keyboard work and pleasing drum work! This song acts like a lullaby to me! It actually makes my mind peaceful! POTF, I love you all!

The beautifully new kind of Poets of the Fall song in Marko's perfect voice. It goes on to show Poets of the Fall's ability to vary their music.

This song should be on the no. 2 position. In fact I believe it is better than Carnival of Rust. I am just putting it on No.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

3 Late Goodbye

A very very good song by the band...
One for the ages...
It makes me wanna keep listening it over and over again!

when I heard CARNIVAL OF RUST I found it very COOL.. nd then when I heard LATE GOODBYE it seemed better!
will try the rest of the list pretty soon I guess..

definitely this song is the best of all potf songs... tihs max payne 2 theme song transfixes me whenever I hear it...

First listened to it in Max payne 2. Listening to it ever since. The lyrics are so great that it makes you go deep in yourself to look for you.

4 Lift

Do we need debate when it seems too late
Like I bleed but wait, like nothing's wrong?

You lift my spirit, take me higher, make me fly
Touch the moon up in the sky, when you are mine
You lift me higher, take my spirit, make it fly
Where all new wonders will appear

In one word: AMAZING

Actually this should have been named as Illusion and Dream 'coz thats what one gets after hearing to this. Really Great song and deserves top position

Definitely should have been amongst the top three... Awesome song... Always manages to make me energetic...

5 Temple of Thought

Powerful vocals, lyrics and music.

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

This song is just too good. Should've been at the top of the list. Once you listen to this song you just can't but like it.

This is one of the best Poets Of the Fall songs! Try it, people, you'll fall in love with it. It does something to you, gives an amazing feeling. The lyrics is good too!

6 Given and Denied

One of the finest and very underrated song of POTR. Personally speaking, this song changed my way of understanding what music really is.

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 favourite 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)!

Come on! This has to be one of their best songs ever... Its just heavenly. Please vote for this guys.
Superb song, superb vocals-an amazing experience!

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 its supposed to be, I'm voting! Wish I could vote for Sleep and Late goodbye too. 15 minute flame... Aa there are so many of them!

7 Illusion & Dream

Carnival of rust is an amazing song... And with 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. - SmootherCriminal

Best Of POTF So Far...! Such a Soothing & Refreshing Sound...! Awesome Guitar Work And Lyrics

Its my favorite.. Don't know why? In love with POTF, I LOVE THEM ALL, but its much more special song..

Best song...

8 Overboard

Awesome beat, awesome vocal, 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'.

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.

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

9 All the Way / 4U

I just love the ending lines of this song... heard the last part over and over again. its truly amazing.

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?

They're best song hands down can't believe it isn't higher

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..

10 Dreaming Wide Awake

The only fault in this song is the Chorus and rest of the Song does not match! Otherwise This song is quite good enough to be in at least in the top 10 for sure.
"Another Place or Time
Without a great divide
And we could be flying deadly high
I'll sell my soul to dream you withe awake! "
Awesome work by Marko and Olli!

This song was me and my girlfriends 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 nly feel the meaning and depth of this song.

The Contenders

11 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.

12 Where Do We Draw the Line

This should be #1.

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.

The song always makes me calm
The lyrical song by the poets of the fall ever!...
Am really addicted to the song! Awesome

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 would urge them.. This song really deserves a top 5 spot.. If not top 3

13 Sleep

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!

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

When I've heard this song it made me cry. After this dong I started to listen to them, so Sleep will be always in the first place for me.

14 War

This song is amazing... Simply amazing. Even more if you played Alan Wake 360's game. Highly recommended, Check the official video too!

I found this song while playing Alan Wake, and I fell in 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 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 reminds me that people actually care about me. It's my favourite song by Poets of the Fall

As soon as I heard this song I knew Poets of the fall were going to be one of my favourite bands, This has to be my favourite song of there's.

15 Love Will Come to You

Should be on top!

Come on...This definitely deserves to be in the top 5. The guitar solo in the end is just something to die for.

Excellent guitar tune. The lyrics feel so true and optimistic that you can't stop listening to it.

I love this new song by Poets of the fall

16 Roses

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

I'm a huge Poet of the Fall fan - 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.

How isn't this one of the top four?!... This song is absolutely magical... Can't stop listening to it!

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.

17 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 jut heavenly! If poets were more well-known, this dog 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! - soumyanildas

Can't deny the fact that this song's just too good even if its heard the first time

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

18 The Beautiful Ones

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

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

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.

This song deserves to be on the top 10 list..

19 Diamonds for Tears

I really don't know how this album is so underrated, this song is beautiful! Tells one of the best stories of any PotF song, and the subtle changes in each chorus and other tiny details show just how great this song is.

What the hell is this song doing here, so low?! This is one of the best Poets of the fall songs EVER!

"because when you're sleeping right next to me, I know you're the one
So when I hear you calling my name, I'll know the good I've done
I guess that's why it's raining diamonds, sweet happiness in tears
Crying heaven shed your diamonds, diamonds for tears.. "

Vote this song up guys! It doesn't deserve to be ranked so low. POTF forever!

No way... This song must be in top 5

Why is it on no 16! should be in top 3

20 The Ultimate Fling

Awesome 2 minute ending guitar solo, it is one of the best songs by them, and best solo by Olli. God bless you Poets of the Fall, I am so glad you great musicians exist. If you create an new album in 2013, make more songs with guitar solos. I Love you Poets of the Fall!

Starting from the intro... The tune goes totally rocking... And the guitar solo, just blows ma mind babe!... Also the lyrics have something in it... Something like, sweet arrogance is the term I may use.. The song's totally misjudged being down here at 29...

Can't believe this song is so underrated..

That ending solo! This song as well as Olli as a guitarist is underrated! Go Poets of the Fall. Love'em. One of the best bands in my opinion.

21 No End, No Beginning

Amazing feel to it.. Great solo too.. Absolutely love it.. If you're reading this... In my humble opinion. Please listen to all the songs enlisted... I'm on a marathon right now.. Listening all of these

The Ending Lyrics are awesome! Should definitely be in the top 5...

This song is too amazing and lyrically brilliant for words... It's constantly on replay!

22 Passion Colors Everything

Why so low?! - rujudan

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!

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"

23 Brighter Than the Sun

A true classic poets' song after a long time. The guitars n Marko's trippy singing... Great stuff! Easily the best from Jealous Gods.

24 Revolution Roulette

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

25 Maybe Tomorrow is a Better Day

Oh, I permanently hope that tomorrow is a better day. Maybe...

True, this song is HIGHLY underrated. I agree with almost every other song, especially Carnival of Rust, Lift and Temple of Thought, being on the top list. But this one CERTAINLY deserves to be in the top as well. This, and Gravity is being underrated which is why I voted for the better of the two, to see that at least one of em make it to the top, because they deserve it.

Are people not known about this song or what?! This song deserves to be in the top five. This position is an insult to this song. There is a zeal in this song.


26 Sorry Go 'Round

I have been listening to this song all day on repeat and I STILL haven't gotten tired of it

Not in the top Ten, well the world's comin' to an end :P

Checked the Lyrics? They're cool enough

Their most underrated song after Fire

27 Stay

Its really hard to make a list of good songs of such amazing bands and this songs rating is proof. Please consider all the songs in a list carefully before voting.

Stay not in the top 20! No! I can listen to this song 50 times on the loop

Come on "Stay" has to be on this list too!
it's god a good soulful tune, the music is pure melody, Marko's voice is just perfect for such a soulful, yearning song. This song has to be up there! Has to be!

One of the best

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

This song is amazing!

Great song with even greater lyrics..must be in top ten.

30 The Happy Song

This song is pretty bad, it's repetitive and quite stupid - kempokid

Very entertaining to listen to, something that you could just keep listening to over and over again as you mull about the day.

31 15 Min Flame
32 Fragile

Best from the Clearview album

35 Dying to Live

36 Someone Special

Blasphemy! If all this while this number wasn't on the list... All I can say is... Its blasphemy! This song defines them.. This is poets of the fall..

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 gotta get this feel.

Food for the soul..
"Back row to the left, a little to the side
Slightly out of the place
Look beyond the light, where you'd least expect
There's someone special"

I Love this Song, Evergreen Song you can listen on any day..any time..I am now listening this Song for 3 three years and still get goose bump..I would love to see "'Someone Special" in Top ten..You have missed something in your life if you have not listened to this Song..

37 Daze

Should be there in the top 5 enough said

My #1 song for POT. Simply amazing!

2nd position?

So contagious, once you get hit by its music, impossible to "Not 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 on the whole.
This track right now has over 300 plays on my iTunes play count.
Bless you Poets of the Fall. Thank You for existing.

38 Fire

Simply awesome... Most underrated song of their's try it guys please and vote

Fie flare alive, take me higher...
The intro vocals, leads, riffs, everything in this song is more than perfect, but its under raated here :'(

39 Kamikaze Love

There's a trinity I follow... Firstly, I Dream wide Awake.., Then Fall in Kamikaze Love, only to know it's the Lie Eternal...

'and the way you walked in I would kiss the earth beneath your feet '

Kamikaze Love deserves to be in the top 10!
Great vocals and guitar! Please vote!

40 Gravity


41 Desire

This song is all about the role desire plays in the life of a human. Awesome Lyrics, and definitely deserves to be in the Top 10

So run for your life"

I can't believe this song is at 40. Its an amazing song. Brilliant lyrics.

This song deserves to be amongst the top 10 by the Poets

44 King of Fools

This has to be their best song! It has such a powerful message and the tune is so awesome! It tells us how people used to blindly believe in things and the light of reason was not there in the previous ages. This is the best song!
