ONTD Original: Top 5 Lorde's Non-Singles (Alt Round Pt. 2)

To fight off the hatred Solar Power has gotten from the critics, here is part two of the top 5 non singles from 3 alternative artists who are releasing new music these months.



Here is a list of the five best non-singles from Lorde's discography including her recently released third album. I chose violence.



5. The Louvre from Melodrama

Right off the bat, I wanna say this is the only Melodrama song in this list and I want your hatred. There are a lot of note-worthy songs in this album, but there are simply better ones in other albums. Sue me.
Either way, The Louvre is so cute comparing a relationship to fine art in the French museum. Broadcast that boom boom boom indeed.



4. A World Alone from Pure Heroine

I could have chosen Buzzcut Season, but this track feels grander, maybe because it was the last track on the album. The party noise, the nostalgia, the teenage vibes; it all feels very cohesive to the album as a whole.



3. The Path from Solar Power

I read a review of Solar Power that called Lorde basic, and it infuriated me because this is yet another brand new side of a female singer in a fresh era, and when do we ever get that from male musicians? But she stills gets called basic. Men, how do we, gays?
Rant aside, The Path is the perfect introduction to the album having Lorde tells us she is no role model, but she is just doing the best she can. Unlike the guy I was dating who decided to ghost me and then complained about me unfollowing him on Instagram.



2. California from Solar Power

I was very close to choosing Oceanic Feeling instead because that song feels like whole continent, but California to me is a fresh take on the marvel that the US gets from foreigners; its basically side eyeing the whole state as not that great compare to home.



1. Ribs from Pure Heroine

I just know I would have been destroyed had this song not been the number one non-single. Ribs feels like a single and rightfully so. David Bowie described this album as the future, and this song perfectly encapsulates that.



What's the best non single from Lorde?

The Louvre
16(28.6%)
A World Alone
5(8.9%)
The Path
2(3.6%)
California
1(1.8%)
Ribs
32(57.1%)


Enjoy!
