I Wanna Know by Joe (23) - Not a bad little R&B song. What Joe lacks in vocal talent he makes up for in sexy crooning. Quite honestly there is nothing spectacular about this song but I still enjoy it. I doubt that there is a woman alive who wouldn't. It is simple and sweet love song that makes me a melt a little bit. Now if this was sung by say...Joshua Radin and it would be all over. It is pretty tough to believe that all of the sweetness found in this song isn't total bullshit. Oh well. In the right mood it isn't a bad song to listen to. In my current mood it just makes me a little bit sad. Best Line: "I'd like to know what makes you cry so I can be the one who always makes you smile."
Faded by Soul Decision (20) - There really is something irresistible about boy bands. No matter how terrible a song might be...you can't help but like and this song is a perfectly good example of that. This really is a terrible song and I know on some level I should be a little bit offended as a woman yet I can't help dancing a little and singing along. I don't know much about the boys of Soul Decision but I am guessing that they have broken up since their "success" with this song. That's too bad really...as this song is actually pretty funny. How cool must they have thought they were to use the line " You stepped like my steeps the way we conversated"? Poor bastards. Yet as great as that line is, it is not my pick for the best line. Best Line: "Ever since you've been hangin' around I've been trying to figure out what I'm gonna say to you to get some play, yeah". You can't tell me that line doesn't make you laugh?
Somebody's Crying by Chris Isaak (241) - Now I was only like 13 (I think) when this song came out but that did not deter from developing what appears to be a lifelong crush on Chris Isaak. I remember buying the CD single of this song and listening to it over and over again for weeks. The funny thing is that I loved the song but had no idea what it was really about. I get it now and let's just say that it doesn't make it any easier to listen to now that I do. It is a simple song of longing and self-deception and yet it still manages to be overwhelmingly hot. I stand by my previous statements that it really doesn't matter what Chris is singing about...it just sounds hot. Add that incredible voice to his stellar looks and it really is no wonder that teenage Millie developed a thing for him. Best Line: "I know somebody and they called your name a million times and still you never came."
Here (In Your Arms) by Hellogoodbye (381) I don't care that no one else likes this song and I am not ashamed to admit that it is #10 in My Top 25 playlist on my iPod. It is a bouncy little love song and I happen to be quite fond of it. I love the simplicity of it. The song is about telling someone that you like to be with them and all of the reasons why. Before you knock this song, stop and think when the last time it was that you told someone that you liked being with them...then judge. In the meantime...get off my back about this song...you know who you are. Best Line: "Well you are the one, the one that lies close to me, whisper's "Hello, I've missed you quite terribly"".
Heaven by Warrant (237) - I was just about to sign off for the night when this song came on. I can't turn this song...ever. This is another one of those ballads that I hear and just stop and think to. It provokes the eye closing, back-tilting, back and forth rocking that I love about ballads as I sing along...even though it isn't a rock song...except for one line that always brings on all three...every single time I hear it. So that line is my pick for best line. Best Line: "I've got nowhere left to go and no one really cares I don't know what to do but I'm never giving up on you." It just barely nudges out the line "I don't need to be a superman as long as you will always be my biggest fan".
