Best Sam Smith Songs

The Top Ten

1 I'm Not the Only One

It is amazing all the aspects

I like the song Stay With Me but this song is better.

It's beyond me how Stay With Me is more popular than this one. SO glad this is number 1 on here though. Well deserved! Such a beautiful song in every way.

I agree

Its like god (batman) sent an angel singing. nowadays can't sleep without hearing at least 5 times - butthurtbastard

Makes me sing, if it makes me sing it means it's amazing

3 Lay Me Down

If beauty had a sound it would be his voice.

The best songs I cry all the time when I heard it

I don't understand how this is number 5 amongst voters and didn't reach number 1 in any of the charts. This is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard (I'm 33 years old) and Sam Smith is an artist that we should be grateful to witness in our generation.

The emotion in his voice is palpable and the pace of the verses emphasize the longing. It's a work of art.

This is definitely #2 in my list because of the first chorus. It gives me goosebumps ever time. This song shows his vocal range and his incredible runs and just his beautiful soul voice. Perfect.

4 Writing's On the Wall

There's no argument here.. this is Sam's best song


About the only thing that made Specter bearable, as good as Casino Royale. No but in all seriousness one of the best songs of all time

It's the best that's all I can say, the cloudy morning and the darkest night of London

6 Latch

The acoustic version of this song is super beautiful. If you have not heard this song you definitely should listen to it. It is a vocal masterpiece.

Up beat song and puts you in a good mood!

The vocals on this track was a breath of fresh air.

This is the number one song of The Summer. I love it.

Amazing song should be in top 3

8 Money on My Mind

His debut solo single. And it went straight to No. 1!

This has to be my least favorite song because I find the chorus A BIT annoying, but the bridge is one of the better bridges in this album.

Sam says Money on my mind but I have this song on my mind.

"I don't have money on my mind, I do it for the love" : this must be the words of all the singers' minds

9 Nirvana

I think that this is one of his more less known songs but IT SHOULD BE KNOWN! It's such a great song. I think it would suit the soundtrack of a movie well - he's also done the Bond theme...

I just wish it was on his album

Love the production and his vocals are incredible

great song

11 Too Good at Goodbyes

Number 1 no cap

In my opinion, this is the best song of Sam Smith

I think it is such an amazing song and loads of people can relate to it, I have listened to it about a thousand times just because I love the song

Between this one, I'm not the only one and writings on the wall, it's hard to choose. They're all amazing songs.

19 I Told You Know

In my opinion, this is the strongest song with best hook. I'm shocked that hasn't gained the recognition that it most certainly deserves. I'm glad that at least I know of it and it makes me sing every time I hear it.


It's an awesome song! But it's actually called 'I've Told You Now'.

One of his best songs... Love it every time I listen to it

28 Good Thing

It's funny: despite its title, this is one of his more depressing songs if you really pay attention to the lyrics. Although, I do like the fact that the beat kicks in the second verse. The ending is just heartbreaking: "I've made the decision not to answer your calls, 'cause I put everything out there, and got nothing at all."

I like the beginning, it sounds like Disney. Its unique.

Yeah,i beginning is sooo awesome.i just love this song especially the part when he goes "too much of a good thing won't be good for long although you make my heart sing to stay with you would be wrong! "

Such an amazing song. Sam Smith has such a beautiful voice, and he is currently one of my favorite singers. Overall, I simply love this song, and all of Sams music.
