20. Goodness Gracious (Halcyon Days, 2013)

“This is such a great song and thank god it is not overplayed in the radio like all of her other song. Even though this song is easily one of her best. Lyrics, melody and a great climax. A perfect pop song”

19. Hanging On (Halcyon Days, 2013)

” has a very unique feel, and has a beautiful beat and rhythm to it. I love the way her voice seems to simply synthesize with the effects. Best Ellie Goulding song ever!”

18. Outside (Motion, 2014)

“This song is beautiful. The energy in this song is unreal, especially when she sings it live.  I just can’t stop hear this song, with Calvin Harris, Ellie make this song with her nice voice”

17. Beating Heart (Halcyon Days, 2013)

“I love this song, not just because it was in Divergent, but it is just so unique. The sound in the background makes me feel like I’m floating if I close my eyes. That’s true for most of Ellie Goulding’s non mainstream songs but this song is really calm.”

16. Halcyon (Halcyon, 2012)

“There is something so uplifting about this song, the lyrics, music, everything. It’s upbeat but still so calming. It makes you feel as if there are better days to come — “I know it’s not over, baby I’ve worked this out before its gonna be colder” I just love it and Ellie’s voice sounds great as always.”

15. Under the Sheets (Lights, 2010)

“It’s the words, music, beat, and the feeling it gave. She has such a sweet melodious raspy girly voice. I love her so damn much.”

14. The Writer (Lights, 2010)

“I love the lyrics of the song as well as the melody! The lyrics’ so meaningful and anyone can relate to it. I love all of her music, this has just helped me a lot. It really shows off her vocal ability too.”

13. Little Dreams (Bright Lights, 2010)

“Forget best Ellie Goulding songs, this is one of the absolute greatest pieces of music to have been conceptualized! One of the most underrated songs of Ellie. This song is definitely magical.’

12. Only You (Halcyon Days, 2013)

“The vocals and the drum beat tempo are amazing, the lyrics simply astonishing. The part that sounds like a chipmunk is just the line “I’m begging you now” sped up, repeated, and high pitched. The “Only You” repeat in the second and last chorus is magical. Definitely most unique Ellie song from Halcyon. Worth at least 10 listens to the newcomer to get accustomed to it.”

11. On My Mind (Delirium, 2015)

“So completely original and unique, which makes it so special. It’s catchy, addictive and will be going round your head all day. This song is wonderful and is on the radio all the time.. This is definitely a song I would recommend to everyone.”

10. Explosions (Halcyon Days, 2013)

“She is the opera, literally. This song is about her father and a boy. It’s about losing someone for good and realizing that you’re going to make it even though it’s a great burden. It’s exceedingly emotional and it can be analyzed a different way every time you listen to it. The opera in the back. Her voice is perfect thought the performance. She is a believer in perfection and she knows it’s perfect. That’s why this is her best song and she is the best musician of my generation. You know who also believed in perfection? Michael Jackson. I just think she’s better because she writes more than him.”

9. I Need Your Love (Halcyon Days, 2013)

“Along with Lights this was one of her songs I listened to before I really knew who Ellie was, I love all of her songs but this one the most, just slightly ahead of Outside. It’s a simple song, but everything beautiful about Ellie’s voice is there. And then Calvin Harris has the most catchy beat on top of that, I just never get tired of listening to it.”

8. Starry Eyed (Lights, 2010)

“This song is my favorite song in this universe. She is just so passionate with her voice and inspiring. She has a brilliant speechless voice that is undeniably beautiful in my opinion. She is also my favorite artist.”

7. Guns and Horses (Lights, 2010)

“I love this song. Even though I love lights I love this song like a sister! Weird expression, yes. What’s more, I always sing “We’ve got our guns and horses! ” What I love is that it was supposed to be about a guy she met online and she made it into a song.”

6. Anything Could Happen (Halcyon Days, 2013)

“Its one of the, if not, the most deep and meaningful song I have ever heard. It’s true is so many ways. Anything Could Happen at any time, that’s true. It stands out more than any pop song today, its definitely that song that makes you stop and think about life for awhile and how spontaneous it can be.”

5. My Blood (Halcyon Days, 2013)

“This is definitely her best song ever. It has a strength that no other song has. This song makes me feel amazing things and my heart beats the chorus is superb “And God knows I’m not dying but I bleed now, And God knows it’s the only way to heal now.” it’s so powerful!”

4. Figure 8 (Halcyon Days, 2013)

“This is the song that tuned me into Ellie Goulding’s music. Heard it on the radio one year and it kept ringing in my head for days till I downloaded it. And I’ve been a fan ever since. One of her best, should be higher.”

3. Burn (Halcyon Days, 2013)

“Great song to bang my head too. This song, just as almost all of Ellie’s songs, is very catchy but unique. The lyrics are very poetic and actually meaningful ( unlike many popular songs these days). It’s rare for a song that isn’t explicitly about relationships or sex to triumph the way this song did on Billboard.”

2. Lights (Bright Lights, 2010)

“I didn’t fall in love with this song at first when it first came out. A couple years later when I listened to it again I just found myself relating to it so much! The song has a unique, cool tone and very interesting lyrics.”

1. Love Me Like You Do (Fifty Shades of Grey, 2015)

“This song is simply the best among all the Ellie Goulding songs I’ve EVER heard. This song is simply MAGICAL, that strikes the chords of your heart and reaches deep into the soul. Its incredible! Just enchanting and mesmerizing. The soothing violin takes the breath away and you are left wondering how can a song be so magical? I’m simply in love with it and I’m sure you’ll be too once you listen to this song. Make it number one, because it deserves it like none other!”
