Best Sam Smith Songs

The Top Ten

1 I'm Not the Only One

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.

This is my personal favorite, because of the piano, the beat and the AMAZING chorus. But, that's not all. Last but not least, the lyrics. This song is very clever. He doesn't straight up say his lover is cheating on him, but he says, "when you call me baby, I know I'm not the only one."

I love this song I think it beats all of his songs, I love Sam smith his songs are amazing but this is the best song I've heard of his

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

2 Stay With Me

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

This song really sticks in your mind, but in a good way. It's really catchy.

Emotional song

3 Lay Me Down

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.

I should hate Sam Smith since he's a restrained artist who supports LGBT...but I don't. And I have no idea why this isn't #1. While Like I Can and I'm Not The Only One are stronger melodically, there are very few songs I've heard that are as emotionally powerful as this one. While most songs these days talk about lost lovers, there are almost none that talk about late ones. And the John Legend remix is even better than the original, which is saying a lot. I give the original a 4.5/5, and the remix a 5.5/5. - WonkeyDude98

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.

If beauty had a sound it would be his voice.

4 Writing's On the Wall

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

A great song to be featured in Bond's upcoming action-thriller Spectre.

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

Up beat song and puts you in a good mood!

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

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.

Love this song it's so up beat and it makes you happy and you just want to get up and dance

7 La La La

Perhaps the only non depressing Sam Smith song

The only one I like - RockStarr

This song should be on number 2 or 3

I sure love this song 😍

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.

Love it!

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

10 Leave Your Lover

This is song is just so emotional I love you sam

It really drives thru you.

The Contenders

11 Too Good at Goodbyes

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.

This song is absolutely perfect in my opinion. I have been listening to it on repeat.

Number 1 no cap

18 Restart

Best singer

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

21 One Last Song One Last Song

This song is amazing just the rhythm to it makes me feel happy and calm. the video makes me think of a classic 70's or 80's theme. when I heard this song I automatically fell in love with it. I'm not gay but I love it

22 Safe with Me

Why so low? His best song so far!

This song gives me a weird yet good feeling when I listen to it

26 Need U

U mean best singer

Worst singer but nobody agrees with me

27 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! "

The instrumentals litarlly make me cry!
