Top Ten Best Shawn Mendes Songs

The Top Ten

1 Stitches

Shawn Mendes doesn't "suck," but that's your opinion, and mine is that I think he is amazing. Most people here agree with me, but some people also agree with you, so I won't bash you.

Let's face it, Shawn Mendes sucks. He can't sing- he's nasal and screams a lot. I don't get why people are so obsessed with him. As for his songs, they're all a bit vanilla.

This is by far one of my favorite songs in the world!

It is a good song

4 There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back

Such a catchy summer bop that gets me hooked every time I hear it play. It was played a lot in 2017. This song ends up getting stuck in my head and it makes me think of Summer love

It was played a lot during the summer of 2017. Good song, though. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

I love this song so much. The chorus is fun and I love the upbeat pace. The Rhythm of the guitar and the Beat is catchy. It always ends up getting stuck in my head. I just love the lyrics of the song, the best, rhythm, tempo, how upbeat it is, the high energy and the pace. This song makes me go crazy and wild

So catchy and so awesome!

5 Life of the Party

It's so touching and meaningful.

How can this not be number 1? With the beautiful message behind it, at the way he sings it at his concerts - he's melting hearts

One of my favorites

Should be higher on the list... Just after stitches... I like it more than that

6 In My Blood

Behold the horrors they like beneath the shadows of remorse. You wouldn't know of course, but I force a new judgement day. On this day you will repay. Your respects to all that may lurk in between your mind and man kind. Now have a seat and be afraid. Fears about to commence the final ritual. One body is all we need for this to be complete and when the day begins to take form you won't be leaving those doors you only live with us inside the darkness as we tear you up inside. I was left behind! All this torture will unwind! I was never all that kind! If you were to rewind then to you'll find! I was left behind take your turn to run and hide! I will catch you all the time! This night no longer shines your tears divine! You'll now be mine!
Behold the terrors you won't believe what I have done to you! I made it look brand new oh how cute,but don't digress. I'm the ringmaster you see. I'm this horror game you flee. I take up every shadow believe me. Now have a seat and grab your light. ...more

I just love it so much! It's so different from his other songs (they're amazing too) and (for me anyway) it still screams Shawn Mendes! You awesome Shawn!

This is my favorite song of his, because it's so inspirational! I love you Shawn!

Shawn Mendes is a stranger you instantly fall in love with...

8 Imagination

It so sweet

The best Shawn mendes song in my opinion.

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."

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

9 Something Big

This song is wonderful! It's totally upbeat and cheerful! Love it. Needs to be at least top 5. Come on people, vote!

Amazing song my potatos.
Oof why isn't it at least top 5?


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.)

15 Never Be Alone

This song is definitely my favorite from Shawn. It is just so beautiful. I think the song is written from the side of a guy who's about to leave his girl for some overseas job and they both know that they'll now have to pursue a long distance relationship. This song is the guy's assurance that he'll always remain loyal to her. It's so breathtakingly beautifu and Shawn's vocal delivery is effortless and raw. Moreover, it has that mountain vibe to it, which makes it all the more fresh.

My favorites from Shawn :
1) Never be alone
2) Something Big
3) Stitches
4) There's nothing holding me back
5) In my blood
6) Treat You Better
7) Lost in Japan
8) I know what you did last summer

Is the best song ever

This should be in the top five - shawnsnose

I'm a metal fan, but still like Shawn Mendes a lot. And this is his best song!

27 Don't Be a Fool

Piece of art - shawnsnose

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..

28 Perfectly Wrong

In my opinion, THE MOST PRETTY SONG of Shawn, whatever it was released a short time ago, I love it and I bet you too!

This is the best song what is it doing here. stitches and treat you better are cool yeah, but this is perfection. people only know those two songs and i’m upset.

29 Despacito

This isn't even him, or maybe it's one of his covers. - allamassal

mm okay.. - shawnsnose

What the hell that's not shawn mendes

35 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❤

36 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.

45 Where Were You in the Morning

I literally cannot describe why I love this song so much

One of the best Shawn Mendes song

46 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!

47 Queen
48 Three Empty Words

So meaningful lyrics with soulful music

49 There's Nothing Holding Me Back

Ok this song insist the best song ever love it is the best song ever

50 Mutual

Don’t know why I love this song so much but it has a great melody. Not one of Shawn’s emotional songs but a easy and fun song
