Top 10 Best St. Vincent Songs

St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark), is one of the most talented women on the music scene today. Her style of music is pretty rare, but she delivers in all the best ways and puts on a great live performance. This is the list of her best songs.

The Top Ten

1 Cruel
2 Digital Witness

Digital Witness is a fun track with a powerful message about how the world is becoming too tech savvy. It's an overall unique track that helped get this album a Grammy.e

3 Los Ageless
4 Birth in Reverse

This song uses heavy synth and eccentric guitar to captivate listeners as they go through a metaphysical "birth in reverse" while listening to this song.

5 Young Lover
6 Cheerleader
7 Strange Mercy
8 Masseduction
9 Surgeon
10 Paris Is Burning

The Contenders

11 Marrow
12 Dilettante
13 Hysterical Strength
14 Rattlesnake

The opening track on St. Vincent, Rattlesnake, was written after Annie had an encounter with a rattlesnake in Texas. It discusses the concept of being alone in the only world and how she's not okay with that.

This was the first song of her's I've ever heard, and maybe the best. - Donut

15 Savior
16 Just the Same but Brand New
17 The Apocalypse Song
18 Pills
19 Prince Johnny

This is one of St. Vincent's most emotionally-tugging songs. It's extremely personal and utilizes her percussion abilities flawlessly.

20 Laughing with a Mouth of Blood
21 Bad Believer
22 Actor Out of Work
23 Krokodil
24 Sparrow


25 Psychopath

Originally a song for Madonna, Psychopath was the first song I heard by St. Vincent. I instantly fell in love with it and her style.

26 Year of the Tiger

How on earth can one miss this song(it wasn't on the list! )...I mean come on Its one of the best songs by st. Vincent! - Toucan

27 Chloe in the Afternoon
28 Save Me from What I Want
29 Happy Birthday, Johnny
30 Sugarboy

Such a good song!

31 New York
32 Marry Me
33 The Antidote
34 Teenage Talk
35 Huey Newton

Similar to Digital Witness, Huey Newton discusses how the youth of the world is becoming more reliant on technology with lines like "feelings flash cards" and "entombed in the shrines of zeros and ones".

36 I Prefer Your Love

This is one of St. Vincent's only love songs. She wrote it for her mother and it is surely effective simply due to the opening line: "I prefer your love to Jesus". Bold & working.

37 Bring Me Your Loves

As St. Vincent said in an interview, "this song is bananas." And it simply is. But it's the good kind of bananas. Not the moldy, brown ones.

38 Severed Crossed Fingers

Yet more proof that St. Vincent slays.

39 Regret

I love this song and how Annie uses her beautiful lyrical abilities and guitarist nature to create this powerful tune.

40 The Bed
41 Neutered Fruit
42 Northern Lights
43 The Strangers
44 Landmines
