Hi, what are you looking for?


Tough Question: What Are The Greatest Three Straight Songs On An Album?

What legitimately could be the single greatest pop culture-related question in history was tweeted by BBC Radio 6 Music’s Twitter on Monday.

Woah, that’s a tough one.

Once again, Twitter was to the rescue and it came through, big. Searching through the thousands of replies generated some great finds:

You get the point: this had folks giving all sorts of suggestions for their top three and these tweets only begin to scratch the surface.

This question is amazing and frustrating at the same time due to there being so many answers — especially when it comes to the variety of a person’s taste and knowledge of music. Personally, for me and one my friends who I consider my musical confidante (@PoorePlaysBass), finding the best three songs has been maddening. Here are some of the answers that he came up with:

Michael Jackson – Thriller

  • Thriller
  • Beat It
  • Billie Jean

Boston – Boston

  • More Than a Feeling
  • Peace of Mind
  • Foreplay/Long Time

Led Zeppelin – Led Zeppelin II

  • Heartbreaker
  • Living Loving Maid
  • Ramble On

Soundgarden – Badmotorfinger

  • Rusty Cage
  • Outshined
  • Slaves & Bulldozers

Kanye West – My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

  • Power
  • All of the Lights
  • Monster

Kanye West – Late Registration

  • Heard ‘Em Say
  • Touch the Sky
  • Gold Digger

The Cars – The Cars

  • Good Times Roll
  • My Best Friend’s Girl
  • Just What I Needed

Beastie Boys – Licensed to Ill

  • Fight for Your Right
  • No Sleep till Brooklyn
  • Paul Revere

Lynyrd Skynyrd – (Pronounced ‘Lĕh-‘nérd ‘Skin-‘nérd)

  • Tuesday’s Gone
  • Gimme Three Steps
  • Simple Man

Smashing Pumpkins – Siamese Dream

  • Rocket
  • Disarm
  • Soma

U2 – The Joshua Tree

  • Where the Streets Have No Name
  • I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For
  • With or Without You

Our own Nathan Odom and myself had got some thoughts out, too:

To summarize, there are so many incredible options and still plenty I have forgotten about. Like most music questions, the answers are subjective as everyone has their own viewpoint and experiences with many genres which shapes their musical style. So, BBC Radio 6’s question will never have a definitive answer.

However, that doesn’t take away from the fun discussion. Music is one of the great unifiers of people and it is proven here.
