Every Harry Styles Song Ranked

Harry Styles released his first solo single “Sign of the Times” five years ago, in April 2017. Since then, he’s built one of the craziest and weirdest songbooks of modern times – a brilliant body of work from a genius singer, songwriter and performer. And he’s about to get bigger, because he’s also an evil angel of chaos who never tires of wreaking havoc in our lives.

It’s the perfect time to celebrate this songbook, as the world awaits his third solo album, Harry’s house, which falls on May 20. (And while the world recovers from its glittery-gasmic Coachella set.) So let’s break it down: Harry Styles’ 30 tracks, ranked and reviewed. No bangers here, just gems, so it’s a tribute to every song.

Let’s face it, there are a lot of Harrys. He’s a pop star. An actor. Specialist in the history of music. A fashion icon. A dangerous madman who finds pleasure in getting under our skin and screwing up our expectations and dancing to our madness. And honestly, bless him for it. He is all that, but as these songs prove, the truest and truest Harry is the one who puts his heart and soul into this music.

The list includes everything from his two solo albums, as well as his brand new number one hit, “As It Was.” Also the two new songs from Harry’s house which he has just presented at Coachella. We count the songs he made regularly during his tours, even if they were not officially released. Sure, that’s totally cheating, but otherwise we’d have to leave “Medicine” off the list, which would be a tragedy.

Obviously, there are no One Direction tracks; it would be a totally different list. (As the old song goes, we don’t want a shadow to hold us hostage, do we?) This list leaves out its great single covers, like “Landslide” or “Juice” or “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”. (Believe me, I was tempted to cheat on that rule to include his Coachella duets with Shania Twain.)

Each fan would compile a different list – that’s the fun, especially with a cannon loaded with treats. (Words are the point here, not numbers.) So let’s make some noise for the 30 songs and the man who gave birth to them. And here is the music he has in store for the future. Step into the light.
