|20 Great Singles|
A list of 20 singles that stand out to me.
|1||Our Lady Peace|
Happiness is not a fish that you can catch
"One Man Army" - One of those rare albums where every song delivers, especially
Places For Breathing
"Seven" - As much as I love "Caught In The Rain", this is the song that truly left a
mark on me.
Pressure And Time
"All Over The Road" - Makes me wanna party hard every day I hear it.
Cold Day Memory
"Forever" - I definitely underestimated this song when I first heard it, thinking it's a
4 out of 5 or somewhere around those lines, but now I think it's a perfect 5 just
based on that incredible drumming alone, but the song really does hold up the more
I hear it. However, I do think that their newest single, "Decay" (off of their
upcoming album, Black Out The Sun), sounds way better.
|5||Walk The Moon|
Walk The Moon
"Quesadilla" - Just so catchy. One of my favourite albums from last year.
"Diamond Eyes" - Words can't even describe how much I love this song. That
chorus has gotta be among the best choruses that I've ever heard.
"Seein' Red" - Looking back on it, I'm surprised with the songs they picked as
singles for this album. "Rest Of My Life" would have been a great choice too, but
"Seein' Red" is really good as well.
"White Limo" - Definitely reminds me of the Deftones song "Rocket Skates", and it
marks a great change of pace for the band (which started losing momentum after
their previous two middle-of-the-road efforts).
"Superunknown" - Might be my favourite track on the album too.
|10||Cage The Elephant|
Cage The Elephant
"In One Ear" - Can't get enough of this one. Puts me in the perfect selling mood.
Hats Off To The Bull
"Face To The Floor" - Great to see that these guys are still capable of making
strangely catchy tunes.
"Eyes Wide Open" - Just blew me away when I first heard this album. I heard "Not
Again" beforehand, and that song's just as excellent too, but this song sold me on
Staind as a legitimate hard rock band that actually rocks hard. That break before
the final chorus is mindblowing.
Feeding The Wolves
"Fix Me" - The singer's voice sounds a bit weird at first, but once the chorus
arrives... you'll be sold, but I love it more for the lyrics than the guy's vocal
Appeal To Reason
"Re-Education (Through Labour)" - Absolutely love this song. Inspired me to buy the
entire album but, to my disappointment, the album didn't quite stack up to the
greatness of this amazing track.
"Thinkin' Bout You" - A refreshing pop album that benefits from having some of the
smoothest lyrics ever presented, largely present as well in this amazing single.
"The Ballad of Hugo Chavez" - Such a happy, upbeat song. Perfect for the summer
Enema of the State
"All The Small Things" - Probably the funniest music video I've ever seen.
|18||Rage Against The Machine|
The Battle of Los Angeles
"Sleep Now In The Fire" - That opening alone takes the prize.
"Watch Over You" - Beautiful song.
The Blue Album
"Buddy Holly" - The song that sold everyone on this band, and one of the best
music videos of all-time.
