2 Treat You Better

I kinda liked this song when it was first posted on vine by Shawn Mendes and now I have fallen in love..

If he says that "I know I can treat you better than he can", then I'll say "i know you can treat me better than he can"...

This is like my life in a song. I couldn't bear to see my crush with another guy and we were really close. But then god exists and now were together. It's my go to song.

Love you shawn mendes

This song should be right after stitches! With the expressions whilst singing and deep low voice which sounds really phenomenal! I really loved this song!

Definitely one of my favorites...anyone else?

Its one of his best songs. The lyrics are deep and his voice shows so much emotion. Why not top 3?

7 Imagination

This song has elements from two Taylor Swift songs; White Horse and Mine. In the choruses of both Mine and Imagination there's a line that a sudden "for the first time."

Usually underrated but my favorite Shawn Mendes song... Oh the feels in this song... Too good...

Best song ever! Beautiful lyrics and beautiful music! My favourite Shawn mendes song!

In my opinion this is better than stitches. It should be higher on the list.

13 Something Big

I'm not a hater but an EXTREMELY worried about his voice. Shawn Mendes experienced vocal damage after his cover of 1D's Drag Me Down. If he gets a vocal cord hemorrhage Earth will be in SHOCK! He got the damage because in 2015 he had to SING FOR A LONG TIME! He belted in Life Of The Party (ending was series of F4 belts,) Something Big (Bb4 belts across bridge,) and Stitches (G#4 belt between bridge and final chorus.)


Love it x1000000

18 Little Too Much

Why is this not in the top 10? I honestly love this song so much and it teaches me such good things. He wrote this song with all his heart and I love it.

Beautiful piano chords are integrated with the strumming of the guitar. meanwhile the harmony carries out its own tune which blends in with the backing, weaving in and out of diminished and augmented chords

I love this really bad

This song has saved me so many times from hurting myself and has helped me with depression�" thank you for making this shawn

Shawn is the best male singer and this song is amazing just like him

It is amazing with a catchy melody

This song is cool!

20 Running Low

A sad song, but Shawn deserves credit. He is really talented, And I am addicted to this song.

He sounds like when he recorded the song he got so emotional he began to cry

Okay if you burst in tears while performing, though your eyeliner can run

My all time favourite

22 Don't Be a Fool

Are you serious..? What happened to your taste guys? This song is the best song of Shawn Mendes. This is the song that should be the number 1 song in this list. I'm really disappointed with people's taste... This is the reason songs like this are disappearing..

Song is so good

I love this song it, is, INCREADABLE!

26 Understand

This song has a lot of Shawn's actual voice and beliefs and insecurities in it and I think that's what makes it so powerful and relatable.

Love this song, moving and truly inspirational lyrics❤

27 Crazy
28 Strings

Its just like 'One Direction featuring Eminem'.. I love it!

This should be right after Aftertaste!

29 Lights On

Should be so much higher but then again I love all of Shawn's songs ❤️

30 No Promises
31 Despacito

Not Shawn Mendes

32 As Long As You Love Me

Not Shawn Mendes, that is Justin Bieber


33 Patience

Good beat and rhythm

34 Hold On

CAN WE JUST TALK ABOUT HOW UNDERRATED THIS SONG IS? to be honest this is my favourite Shawn Mendes song, top 7 being mostly underrated ones, this, Roses, Aftertaste, Memories, There's Nothing Holding Me Back, Never Be Alone and Stitches. ❤️Not that all aren't great.

35 Oh Cecilia

Shawn sounds like Taylor Swift in 2012-13, when she released Red. I heard this and I thought the featured artist was Taylor Swift and was recorded in 2013.

Shawn belted a VERY HIGH note: F#5. I assume his range is F#2-F#5-G5, since recently he reached G5 by falsetto.

G#4 or 5

Love this song! It's so happy😊😍the vamps and shawn sound so amazing together!

36 Honest

It is a good song. yet I think he should work little more on his pitch or chords for this song...

37 This Is What It Takes

This is the most beautiful song I've ever heard, love you shawn

I get it stuck in my head every day

38 Like This

I love this song! But all of his songs are beautiful and amazing! We unfortunately can't put all the songs on 1🙄😊❤❤
