Top 5 Songs With Male Names
Male-named tunes may not be as ubiquitous as female-named tunes but there are still lots of good ones to spare!
My top 5:
5. The Jam – David Watts
The Kinks got to be #1 on the girls list. I thought I’d share the wealth and include the faithful cover by The Jam (from their enjoyable All Mod Cons) in lieu of the equally solid Kinks original.
4. Blur – Colin Zeal
I’ve been on a Blur kick of late. The Universal is quickly climbing my all-time favourites list and Colin Zeal, the third track on Modern Life is Rubbish, is good enough for the #4 spot here.
3.Chantal Kreviazuk – Wayne
Yesterday I said it would be on a future top 5 list. It appears the future is now!
2. Eminem – Stan
One of the more impressive songs in recent memory. After each year of the project, I do a recap of favourite records from the previous twelve months. The Marshall Mathers LP is an early contender for the best of Project Year #3.
1. The Smiths – William it was Really Nothing
I adore the song structure: one verse followed by three choruses. 2 minutes and 10 seconds of brilliance. Leaving Frankly Mr. Shankly off the list wasn’t easy (nor was leaving Jeane off yesterday’s Top 5) but I suppose having far too many great songs to fill a top 5 is a nice problem to have.
