Best Sam Smith Songs

The Top Ten

1 I'm Not the Only One I'm Not the Only One

Sounds like nothing else then or since! A timeless song that has a classic feel right from the first listen!

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.

It is amazing all the aspects

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

2 Stay With Me


Emotional song

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 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.

If beauty had a sound it would be his voice.

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.

This song is so emotional and his voice just makes you want to burst into tears.

Everything about this song is just so perfect except WHY THE HELL IS THIS NOT IN #1?

4 Writing's On the Wall

Absolutely brilliant. I loved this song the first time I heard it. No one else could ever sing it as well as Sam. I'm glad it won an Oscar.


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

5 Like I Can

Yeah! Listen this Song with a couple of your friends with suits And go To A party is Just beautiful :D

Honestly it's probably his best song of all time!

This song is catchy and quick to learn

This should be #01. Best Sam Smith's song so far!

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.

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

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

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

In my opinion it's hands down the best Sam Smith song

I love this song - RockStarr

Okay, why it isn't not on the top ten list? Come on guys you have to here it, aside from I'm Not The Only One and Stay With Me this is also incredible.

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

Too beautiful!

This song is so amazing, strong and relatable. I love it.

25 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.
