Top 10 HIM Songs

The Top Ten

1 Wings of a Butterfly

Just amazing. Nothing else to say.. Words speak for themself!

A beautiful song, absolutely one of the best songs, and such a powerful meaning behind it as well!

This song is great! Like their other song

Awesome guitar sound and a great beginning and end. Wings of a Butterfly is definitely one of the best songs by H.I.M.

2 Vampire Heart

There's something extra in this song. It's what made me fall in love with the band. The wings of a butterfly is awesome too though.

I absolutely love that main riff

Just the chorus brilliant - Xkensx29

Best of the best!

3 The Funeral of Hearts

I like this song. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

It's a decent song. - PokemonYesTeletubbiesNo

favorite song ever... it'll never get too old, too boring or not exciting

One of the most romantic songs I have ever heard, and definitely shows how HIM make extremely meaningful and beautiful songs with equally amazing lyrics...

4 Join Me in Death

The best of the best HIM song! It is really very inspiring and is one song that you can listen to a thousand times and never get bored. HIM is great band but Join me was what made them famous

Thats a pretty cool song I was suprised it wasn't on the list - Ak3nator

Join me is an incredible example about that how amazing singer Ville is and how magical lyrics he can write. His voice is like a drug for me and for many others too I guess. This song is never gonna be lame no matter how much you listen to it. Loving this

The first song I hear by a band is usually my favourite... Join me in death was the first HIM song I ever heard and was the song that made me love them. Ville has amazing song writing skills, he makes everything sound so beautiful...

5 Killing Loneliness

The song that got me into this band, such beautiful music behind his marvelous voice, with such deep lyrics

Totally amazing really it kills

Anyone of any music taste can take to this song just ask my works friends - Xkensx29

It's not just a commercial song. It's truly moving.

6 It's All Tears (Drown in This Love)


All their songs are very good. But it's something special with this one... I do really like Love You Like I Do also

Better version is the one on the uneasy listening album - Xkensx29

7 When Love and Death Embrace

Really good song, hard to believe it's down here. It definitely deserves some more votes

My life changed forever the first time I heard this song. It's absolutely amazing, epic, deep, dark, romantic and with a sense of void and axiety that you can almost touching. It's a song that shows the band in his very essence

I've been HIM fan for 10 years and after all this years, I've found this as the most touching HIM song and always return to it. It's simple yet dark, melanholic and romantic with "desperate" synth line and heavy guitar with subtle licks from Linde which makes the song even more powerful. Ville does really great job singing this song, one of my favourite performances by him.

A very touching song, a really bad ranking though.

8 The Sacrament

Absolutely beautiful piece of art.

best beginning ever... this piano makes me mad, yea! I can't stop listening to this song, really.

I get shivers every time I listen to it. It's a masterpiece! The piano, his voice, it's perfect! For me, it's one of their best songs

The piano gives this song so beautiful feeling, I've loved this song the most since I started listening HIM.

9 Wicked Game

This needs to be number 1. As the number 1 him fan and having every HIM song on my phone and listening to nothing but HIM on a daily basis this list makes no sense to me. Venus (in our blood) shouldn't even be on this list. There's so many good HIM songs. most of the songs on this list are just the popular ones. Wicked game #1 and venus doom #2

I know this song isn't by ville himself but he made it ten times better and it's the most popular and famous song from HIM!

It's a cover, but is the best song's version ever! That's the song what make me like HIM

This cover is better than the original one, so sensual

10 One Last Time

The best song to listen to when you have to think about your love life that is crashing down

Yes! This needs to be higher - Xkensx29

The Contenders

11 (Don't Fear) The Reaper

Like the amazing cover of Metallica - Astronomy, this cover also can find a place in most beautiful covers of all time.

12 Gone with the Sin

This was the song that got me into the band, listening to this and all the stripped versions of it just kills me every time. Ville's lower register is just memorizing, and hands down my favorite HIM song.

Ville's low voice at the beginning gives me chills every time! This is one of the 3 songs that makes me speechless every time I hear it!

Love this song it makes me calm... Very good lyrics and I love the voice of ville valo!

I just love the way your losing your life!

13 Please Don't Let It Go

It's a brilliant song, the lyrics are beautiful and the music is very well composed, infusion of tabla is very beautiful...

14 Right Here in My Arms

For me it's the best song! Whenever I feel sad, I listen to this particular song! It's really emotionally strong!

This was the first HIM song I've ever heard that got me into the band. 6 years later and it's still my all time favorite track. This song needs to be at least #5 on the top ten.

Fell in love with them when I heard this song. It's so powerful and hard to ignore when I see it on my music list in my ipod.

I've listened to all the songs in the current top 10 and, apart from wings of a butterfly, nothing comes close to this song!

15 In Joy and Sorrow

Frankly, this song possesses a bit of a "cowboy" tone, but it sets a tone perfected only by the great and powerful HIM. He has yet to disappoint me or any other people I know who listen to HIM, and if he keeps making songs like these, he never will. - izzychavez

Simply amazing song, possible to listen to it again and again and again in a row

It's such a beautiful song.

The most beautiful song ever

16 Kiss of Dawn

The 6 minute album version with the extended outro section does it for me. It makes an already great gothic song a whole lot more epic. Too bad the video version has the outro edited out entirely...

Best song on the album venus doom!

17 Your Sweet 666

The only way someone doesn't love this song is if they haven't heard it. Listen to this.

This is one of those hidden gems songs that doesn't have an official video but you kinda wish it did!

#14? That's insane!

Seductly darkness

21 Sleepwalking Past Hope

'my hells begin from the 10th and descends to the circle'
reference to the Dante's Inferno. He always references to the epic authors as Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe.. A man full of culture and sensitiveness. Love Ville

this is the best song its a masterpiece... it has everything you want... giutar solo, bass solo, drum solo and perfect keybords

Epic Song...10 MINUTES A MASTERPIECE! And Very Good Performance At Digital Versatile Doom... Very Emotionly Lyrics From A Love Metal Band...

The best song from Venus Doom... Very Hard guitar, Very Hard Bass, Very Dark lyrics..

25 Venus (In Our Blood)
26 Acoustic Funeral (For Love In Limbo)

For months I sung along to this without actually listening to the words - then when the penny dropped and the story began to unfold, I ended up bawling my eyes out. My breath still catches in my throat when I listen to it...

Finally this song is getting the acclaim it deserves, "the lullaby from hell" as Ville called it is probably his finest piece of songwriting.

Words cannot express how beautiful this song is, "I save my last breath for your window to write you this song"

Absolutely perfect!
I saved my last breath for your window to write you this song
We're dancing with tags on our toes

28 Bury Me Deep Inside Your Heart

This song has something in it. The atmosphere is very good, I love the piano in the backside. Tingles run thru my body when listening to this song.

Very nice song, I'm suprised it's not on the list.

29 Face of God

This song isn't your typical love song. It shows just how much you care for someone when you really do care for them. It shows that when they don't feel that way "you'd kill just to share their pain"

UListen to Sample
30 Close to the Flame

It honestly feels so relaxing to hear this sweet, romantic, yet depressing song. Just the perfect mixture giving you a good reason to love HIM for their uniqueness with these kinds of songs.

A song which make me cried all the time.

31 Shatter Me with Hope

Why wasn't it there already?. One of the best songs by HIM. Damn never expected screeches from them.

Such a powerful song! I actually love all HIM songs so hard to choose but this is definitely in my Top Ten! The lyrics are fantastic!

My personal favourite HIM song which is saying a lot as I love so much of their songs. Top class vocals from Ville - wolphert

Delicious tune, I can't decide on a favorite him song, so I scrolled down till I found one that was way too low, the rankings of this as well as BaBL are WAY too low, I expected BaBL to be #1 or #2 ~, ~ this one should be top 10 as well.. Ohh well, just a site I guess

Best love song I have ever heard. This song is what got me hooked on HIM. His voice is absolutely amazing in this song. Everything you want in a love song is right here. It is poetically flowing, yet simple. This is by far Ville's best work.

Underrated song
