  1. Push: 1996; Yourself or Someone Like You (audio clip) (Lovely, lovely song. I love how it's angry and sad and confused, all at once.)
  2. Bent: 2000; Mad Season (audio clip) (The song that made me a Matchbox addict. I didn't even allow myself to love this song until a year after it was released.)
  3. 3AM: 1996; Yourself or Someone Like You (audio clip) (Probably my favorite MB20 music video too. Rob looks cute when he does his little dances near the end, awwwwww!)
  4. Could I Be You : 2002; More Than You Think You Are (audio clip) (I love the lyrics on this song! Beautiful, painful song-- written by Paul. This is why I love MB20 as a WHOLE band, lol.)
  5. Downfall: 2002; More Than You Think You Are (audio clip)
  6. You Won't Be Mine: 2000; Mad Season (audio clip) (Haunting, rich, painful...)

  8. Kody: 1996; Yourself or Someone Like You (audio clip)
  9. Unwell: 2002; More Than You Think You Are (audio clip) (This is my official theme song, lol. Rob Thomas has social anxiety disorder! I'm convinced! You *HAVE* to have social anxiety disorder in order to sit down and write lyrics like these, lol.)
  10. Mad Season: 2000; Mad Season (audio clip) (More proof that Rob has s.a.d.)
  11. The Burn: 2000; Mad Season (audio clip)

I've never heard a Matchbox Twenty song that I did not like. I can play all 3 of their albums without having to skip a song. There are some that I do skip, but I don't *have* to skip them. :-p There are no totally horrid MB20 songs, in my opinion. I love people who sing with emotion, I don't care what genre it is, I just love being able to *feel* what they're singing. This band has SO much soul and emotion. Rob can convey so many different feelings in his voice. And the number one thing I love about MB20? That they love playing music, they make music they love, and they just play it. There's none of that "Oh this will be played on the radio, it sucks!" snobbery going on here. No pretensions, no pretentious lyrics, no political/social statements; just pure good simple music that people can enjoy & relate to. And I think that's what music is supposed to be about. And being eye-candy is a very nice bonus! :-D
