One 'pop' Song Per Album

Recommended Posts

I've noticed all of the solo records have at least one classically 'pop' song, each with a similar cohesion in terms of how it fits on the album (a 'soft spot') and the reaction it elicits in the listener (head bobbing). Every time, every record has that moment! There's a mental acknowledgement every time 'that' track comes around. Maybe it's the tempo overall. Anyone else agree/disagree?

 

Arrows of Desire (2013)

Hey Hell Heaven

 

Lights of Endangered Species (2011)

In a Place of Lesser Men

 

Vancouver (2009)

Us Remains Impossible

 

Hospital Music (2007)

The Devil's in Your Details

 

White Light Rock & Roll Review (2004)

In Love with A Bad Idea (and/or It's Been Awhile Since I was Your Man)

 

Avalanche (2003)

Song for the Girl

imo those might be the weakest(aka least favorite) songs on each cd for me. Nor do any of those really "head bob" for myself.

i like them and often think it's where Matt excels. i know that's blasphemous 'round these parts. i prefer his writing with a pop bent. i'm a bad fan.

 

i don't think 'song for the girl' is the pop moment on avalanche though. and it's definitely 'born losers/i'm a window' on hospital music. i'd also suggest arrows has more than a few.

 

the exception is us remains impossible. i don't connect with it for whatever reason and much prefer the rest of the record.

So much hate for "Us Remains Impossible"... I'm not sure why I like that song as much as I do.

I don't hate Us Remains Impossible. I would say I am pretty indifferent to it. It's an okay song, doesn't really stand out or move me in any way. The Devil's In Your Details, however, usually moves me to the skip button, because I do not like that song one bit.

I don't think "pop" is an accurate description. Rock tunes that have hit potential works for me but not "pop".
