2 Fallen

In my opinion, it's probably the greatest song from sarah so far. I really can't think of a more devoted musician when it comes to delivering a song.

This song is is so beautiful. It shows her vocal talent. In this song she is so good at making you feel the pain of someone down in a low place because of a mistake. Such a beautiful piece of music.

This song is actually perfect! Its nice to listen to this when you're all alone and no one left for you and when you feel the emptyness around yourself...
Its totally awesome

3 Adia

Cause we are born innocent...Adia

Its easy, we all falter... It doesn't matter

Adia, I do believe I've failed you by not voting for you enough. You deseve much more than this.

4 Possession

One of the best songs I've ever heard! It's not doubt nothing short of masterpiece. It's beautifully written and performed. Every single thing about the song is perfection. From the haunting beginning to the emotion filled chorus, to the symphony of guitars in the instrumental break. It just sticks with you. You know a song's good when you don't get sick of it after the 17272717th time listening to it! It's also deep and can be perceived and interpreted in so many ways. I love Sarah mclachlan and many of her songs are amazing! But possession is by far her best in my opinion. Truly underrated song. :).

It's the "Mirrorball" version in particular that I believe is her best record to date. It's nice to see this song at the third position, but here's my take on the top 2 songs: "Fallen" is good, but Afterglow had a few better songs, namely "Time" and "World on Fire. " "Angel" is simply excellent and one of the best songs from Surfacing, but it's fairly overrated, not to mention that I think "Witness" and "Black & White" are better. I'm still glad to see "Possession" at #3.

Absolutely the best song of her career, in my opinion. The range of her voice raises goose bumps and the instrumentals are equally as sublime.

Has so many underlying emotions and layers which is one of the most skillful and important factor in music. This song well um possesses me...

13 Silence

One of the most beautiful songs out there. She uses several elements and sounds to give the song a full meaningful sound. It's sad and beautiful all at the same time, a great song!

The best song ever my number 1 of all time it never gets old

14 Hold On

My favorite Sarah McLachlan song of all time. Slow and soft with a lot of meaning in the words, and I especially love the chorus and the second section of the song. Absolutely beautiful.

15 Fear

Very unlike most of her other music, in that its instrumentation is kept breathy and ethereal, largely due to the almost total omission of a bottom end. Her vocals are sung almost entirely in her falsetto range with an emphasis on a hall-like reverb effect, which lends a feeling of eerie timelessness. The subject matter is primal and fundamental; the language used is poetic and displays a gift for causally sublime metaphor. Easily my favorite from her library.

16 Stupid

One of her best pieces ever: lyrics, music, performance and also the video

17 Answer

This song changed my life!

Beautiful

18 Push
19 The Rainbow Connection
20 Loving You Is Easy

This song is just wonderful. It makes me feel so happy and it's a very jovial track!

Why is this #20 in HER list? It should be in the top #20 songs of all time.

21 Ice Cream

"Your love is better than ice cream
"Better than anything else that I've tried
"And your love is better than ice cream
"But everyone here knows how to fight"

Not her best song, but it deserves to be on the list.

22 Forgiveness

This is such an amazing song from her album Laws of Illusion S. It has such beautiful lines. My favorite line from this song is "This house of cards it had to fall. "

23 Dear God
24 World On Fire
25 Full of Grace

This is one of the most beautiful, yet chilling immortal pieces of music I have ever heard in my life that continues to have the same effect on me after all these years!

Just listen to it

26 Out of Tune

This song gives me the chills and a profound sense of peace every time I listen to it and is simply timeless. A perfect marriage of music and lyrics!

27 Gloomy Sunday

Fantastic. Brilliant and touchable, mein herz brennt. Very sad and beautiful song ever

28 Witness
29 In Your Shoes
