20. Hurricane (Badlands, 2015)

“A song that tells the story of a young woman who doesn’t “belong to no city, belong to no man”. Such an empowering feminist song.”

19. Alone (Hopeless Fountain Kingdom 2017)

“This song is probably one of the best contemporary songs of 2018. It has an amazing synth-pop and R&B mix which makes the song pleasurable and nostalgic. A must listen!”

18. Heaven in Hiding (Hopeless Fountain Kingdom 2017)

“I’m listening to this as I write this. Halsey’s vocals sound amazing here (like she is), and the lyrics are great too. This song is heaven in hiding. An eruption of energy and fierceness. Some of the finest work I have ever encountered.”

17. The Feeling (Purpose, 2015)

“I feel like this song didn’t get enough promotion as the whole album was just too good so they couldn’t promote EVERYTHING. But this one is DEFINITELY one of the best song on the album hands down.”

16. Him & I (The Beautiful & Damned, 2017)

“Undoubtedly one the best songs by Halsey. The voices of G-Eazy and Halsey melt together to produce a beautiful song. Also the music video brings another level of intimacy to the song.”

15. Without Me (Manic, 2020)

“I cry all the time while listening to this song because my life has been hard and no one has ever had my back none of my friends were real and my childhood was stripped away now I’m 12 and I’m too young to have this much mental pain caused by betrayal from my dad and step dad not to mention my friends also my therapist moved I cry then to still though but ii gotta be tough for my siblings one older and one younger and it doesn’t help my mom at all I don’t know what to do I cry before bed thinking that it’s my fault I still think so but latley I haven’t felt true happiness I fake it and I just want to hide away and start over I feel like I’m depressed begging people to stop walking out of my life and once you leave you can’t get me back I just want to cry and cry and let go”

14. Drive (Badlands, 2015)

“The lyrics are so powerful and moving in this. the song is extremely underrated. the sounds are amazing and the chorus is amazing- “and all we do is drive. all we do is think about the feelings that we hide. all we do is sit in silence waiting for a sign. sick and full of pride. all we do is drive.” it represents a toxic relationship in which they are only able to understand each other not through communication but in silence.”

13. Young God (Badlands, 2015)

“Young god is such a beautiful and calm song. The lyrics are meaningful and unique, which is another reason Halsey such a talented person! It covers deep meanings in such a happy tune, she’s telling one of the best stories in one of her best songs, this is such an underrated song.”

12. Bad at Love (Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, 2017)

“The lyrics in this song tell a great story about Halsey’s past lovers, and this song overall sounds really good, and the instrumental in the bridge is actually really nice”

11. Control (Badlands, 2015)

“This song just makes me feel some sort of way I love it. It just has this eerie and disturbing feel throughout the whole thing I’m obsessed with it!”

10. Hold Me Down (Hold Me Down, 2015)

“The beat is fantastic in this song, and it is Halsey’s best song, in my opinion. She is a lyrical mastermind and her skills are really showed off in this song.”

9. Now or Never (Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, 2017)

“Now or Never” is by no means a bad song, but it certainly a disappointment. Badlands was a captivating debut album that didn’t necessarily break new ground but worked as a great platform for Halsey to display her talents. It crafted a sonic atmosphere, acting as the perfect backdrop to the fiery melancholy of her lyricism. “Now or Never”, while still as dark as her previous works, lacks the power of “Castle” or “Hold Me Down”. Lyrically, it pretty simple and straightforward. The trap production is pretty basic, blending in with most of Alt R&B tracks on the charts right now. Also, it must be noted that the song’s hook is undeniably similar to Rhianna’s “Needed Me”. Rhianna’s track, however, had a much edgier production and was overall a more interesting track. Halsey’s “Now or Never” makes for no more than a decent track by an artist who can do better, and a weak choice for a lead single.”

8. Strangers (Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, 2017)

“The bisexual anthem of 2017. Halsey and Lauren destroyed heteronormative music industry with one song. Absolutely my favorite Halsey’s song.”

7. Is There Somewhere (Badlands, 2015)

“The vocals convey so much emotion. This is so poetic and often overlooked. There is genuine emotion and heartbreak. We never hear about the girl used for cheating and how she feels being used by a guy with a girlfriend; we only ever hear about the girl being cheated on. I love how Halsey shows a new perspective and that makes it so wonderful.”

6. Castle (Badlands, 2015)

“This is one of the best songs I’ve ever heard. The music is interesting, the lyrics fit well together, and it really fits her voice. It’s so different from anything I’ve ever heard, yet so amazing.”

5. Ghost (Badlands, 2015)

“I’ve listened to Halsey for a long time now, a few years, and I’ve taken this song through a lot and while I’ve gotten bored of repeating songs over and over, Ghost is one that I can never hear too much. I’ve listened to it through so many good times and bad times, and was the first song I really learned how to perform on piano and vocals. Honestly, such a beautiful song and it deserves all the recognition it has.”

4. New Americana (Badlands, 2015)

“I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it and I was like “woah this song is great! ” And I discovered Halsey and instantly fell in love. A song that makes you think, but on the other hand makes you want to sing along loudly while drunk. The genius that is Halsey.”

3. Roman Holiday (Badlands, 2015)

“I love absolutely everything about Roman Holiday. The first few lines just captivate me, then the chorus is so powerful and the lyrics is just perfect. The beat of this song is also wonderful, and the way she is so specific about all that happened that night is amazing. This song is the best song she has ever written and I think it should be her most popular one.”

2. Gasoline (Badlands, 2015)

“Gasoline is such a great song, with a great meaning to go along with it. The lyrics actually make you think, the beat is fantastic, and I love everything about this song. I could listen to Gasoline all day and it would never stop being so meaningful and addicting. I can really connect to the lyrics, which are, by the way, amazing.”

1. Colors (Badlands, 2015)

“A masterpiece. Halsey’s voice isn’t too powerful, too high, or too low. It’s at the perfect pitch and tone to be sung. The lyrics are something special describing the colors of a relationship, where one is red, blue, grey and purple each representing a different part of the romance. The beat accompanies all of this really well to create a well crafted story. Beyond pop perfection. “
