Best Songs On Imagine Dragons's Smoke + Mirrors

EvilAngel

The Top Ten

1 I Bet My Life

This song is dedicated to our parents, and how they always want to do their best for us in life, even if we don't see it that way.

Quick story:

I once misbehaved at a restaurant on New Year's Day, 2015. My computer was confiscated for a week and I needed it. I listened to this song a few times when I got back home, then ran to my mum and cried, thanking her for confiscating my computer privileges. I had realised that my mum took my computer away not because she hated me like I first thought, but to teach me a lesson and to do what's right for me. I now live my life by this song. I bet my life on my parents. :)

Have a listen. Please? - Wolftail

This song brings tears to my eyes, I just can't get over the greatness of the song. It means so much to me! It's a great listen, I suggest it to all people! :-)

It has a nice meaning but I don't really like how it sounds

Best song ever! Love it to death

2 Shots

Hopeful yet melancholy at the same time, with instrumentals that are sure to get you pumped! They opened with this song at a concert I went to, and I was totally blown away. A few months later, I had been feeling really stressed out and sad, and when I turned on the radio, Shots was playing. It just seemed so out of place at the time yet it was exactly what I needed to feel better, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't cry! It's my go-to song to listen to when I'm feeling out of it or just need a pick-me-up!

Upon hearing this song for the first time It instantly became my favorite Imagine Dragons song. The lyrics really speak to me and the rhythm is full of lots of passion and good use of instruments. - DrewtheGamer98

This is by far the best in the album. Shots has a catchy chorus and its fun to sing along to.

THIS SHOULD BE #1!

I love the meaning of this songs. Seriously, all of their songs are amazing and makes me see things clearly and makes me realize what I've done so far

Use to be my favorite until shots got me after the 5th time listening to it

5 Smoke And Mirrors

You can seriously hear the raw emotion in the chorus. What seems like a somewhat airy song is immediately pulled back to the earth with a gritty instrumental break right before the chorus. Awesome song, and definitely underrated!

I love this song. And I really hope to see you in July!

One of the most underrated ID songs in my opinion

ALL I NEED
IS IT A DREAM
THAT COMES CRASHING DOWN ON ME
ALL THAT I WANT
IS IT JUST SMOKE AND MIRRORS?

No, it's not, because Imagine Dragons isn't smoke or mirrors. And good music is all I want.

This song is living the fast lane. It's a roll away fright train and it's plain out the best one on the album.

It catches you right off the bat and hooks you with a catchy chorus. Best Song on the Album

It is the best song in the album with the catchiest tune!

Amazing. Can't believe it isn't higher on the list. One of my favorites of all time.

This is my favorite song by imagine dragons, but its not on smoke and mirrors!

UNDERRATED! It's not as good as I'm so sorry I think. 2nd favourite song on whole album :smoke + mirrors deluxe

By far the best song on smoke and mirrors, it just sounds so epic.

Epic. - Camaro6

8 Hopeless Opus

My favorite on smoke and mirrors, and has possibly THE BEST guitar solo EVER!

Love the pase of this song but its bot the best

9 Dream

This is a song with so much emotion and dynamics in it that is deserves to be in the top 5. Better that Trouble, Hopeless Opus and Friction.

A great and beautifully played song. Piano and Dan's heartfelt vocals are awe-inspiring together, plus the lyrics make a powerful addition. This needs to be combined more often.

I absolutely love this song. In my opinion, it sounds like an artist's mind!

That chorus is out of this world

10 Trouble

I think Trouble is the best song for me. I always listento this song when I have a chance!

So wait for me, Brother, I need redemption
I'm just a man, a man on a mission
I want no trouble, I want no trouble, I want no trouble, I want no trouble...

This song has a great lyrical value and potential to go very big. A great song accompanioned by Dan's powerful vocals, this, Polaroid, I Bet My Life, and Hopeless Opus are definitely some of my Smoke + Mirrors favourites.

The Contenders

11 It Comes Back to You

Such an underrated song.

12 Monster

If I told you what I was
Would you turn your back on me?
And if I seemed dangerous
Would you be scared?

I get the feeling just because
Everything I touch isn't dark enough
And this problem lies in me...

One of the best songs written by Dan, I actually underestimated this when I first saw it. However, the "and if I seemed dangerous" mystified me. I eventually watched a HALO music video all the way through of this and fell in love. DO NOT TAKE THIS SONG LIGHTLY.

This came out as a single 2 YEARS ago and is one of their best songs. GIVE IT A LISTEN!

13? Come on what's wrong with you guys! It is amazing song that I ever heard!

Make this higher! This is the best song on this album. No question.
“If I told you what I was, would you turn your back on me? If I seem dangerous, would you be scared? I get the feelin’ just because everything I touch isn’t dark enough...and this problem lies in mee...” SO GOOD. - Camaro6

14 Summer

Underrated but not the best

Come con, this is my favourite song of smoke + mirrors, it's full of different meanings and the refrain gives me goosebumps every time because of dan's high vocal notes. Pepole should appreciate more

Great summer song

15 Battle Cry

Awesome song. Should be in the top 5

This list is stupid,

Good song, but not on S+M. - WonkeyDude98

Best

16 Who We Are
17 Thief

I can't believe how low this is. This is better than I bet my life, shots, polaroid, hopeless opus, summer etc.

The best. I can't believe it is only on the deluxe album, it should be on the main one

This song gives me chills every time I hear it because it's so amazing.

BEST SONG!
