Most Under-rated Mg(b) Song?

Recommended Posts

So i was getting around to thinking what people think is the most under appreciated tunes Matt has wrote...

 

Let's seperate them, so pick one tune with the MGB and one from his solo stuff...?

i like those choices a lot... especially Double Life, people seem to not like it. i'm pretty intrigued as what people will think of this.

For the MGB stuff - Prime Time Deliverance

 

Don't really think this is under-rated at all... most fans think of it as one of his greatest pieces of work. At least around here.

I agree with New Wave and Boy Come Home, and would throw She's Got a New Disguise and Bright End of Nowhere in there as well.

Boy Come Home is one of my favourites. Also I think The Rat Who Would Be King is an awesome example of Matt's vocal range.

this is about under-rated tracks in his discography, not the best or with the best vocals or anything like that.

 

which songs you think don't get the attention they deserve.

Here, yes it does get some love. To most Matt fans outside of here, they have no clue about it. I've met some "big time" Matt fans who skip past this track and never give it a second thought.

I cannot discuss this any longer. I am still a fan of Matt, but I really to branch out my music. So for now I will be taking a break from listening to him for a period of time that I don't know how long it will last.

I think I Miss New Wave is rated properly.

 

to me, underrated (i'll go by album since too hard):

 

she's got a new disguise

rico!

jenni's song

I, the throw away

in a world called catastrophe

 

not sure about the rest of those albums' songs as they're never discussed. I guess those albums are underrated.

 

 

ALSO, peeple will kill me but I think Fated is an overrated song. It's very good but not one of the all time greats.

Double Life is definitely underrated. I would say Rico as well, it's not his best song by any stretch, but I don't think it deserves the reputation it has. I would also say Put Out Your Lights, Poor Man's Grey, Little Terror, Look Happy, My Out Of Style, Middle Class Gangsters, Invasion 1, Let's Get It On, Going All The Way, Failing The Rorschach Test and Jenni's Song are all underrated.

Failing the Rorschach Test for sure...i think it has the one of the highest play counts of anything off BM

 

Maybe Buffalo Seven from the solo stuff. I was a little upset when it lost to Last Parade in the song vs. song tourney, but it was expected.
