All of those singles got a lot of love from alternative radio though. I’d argue that “Helena Beat” and “Houdini” were “hits” in their own right, in spite of the fact that they didn’t make the Billboard Hot 100.

It’s really impressive that her voice sounds exactly the same as it did 20 years ago.

Not bad. I do like that bit at the end where she says “Thank you MTV for letting me, of all people, go unplugged.” Very self-aware Miley.

I love it. That’s super beautiful.

Sounds kinda phoned-in. Are these guys still writing their own material?

I can dig it. This jingle’s better than about half the songs on Heartthrob.

Love her. Saw her for the first time in the basement of a church in Athens, OH back in like ’08 or ’09. More recently I saw her at Little Rock here in Columbus about a month ago, and she’s only improved with age.

I refuse to believe that “Somebody Told Me” and “Mr. Brightside” are the two best Killers songs. Don’t get me wrong, they’re fine, but I they’re just catchy singles; they’re not more compelling or well-thought-out than “Read My Mind” or “Andy You’re a Star” or plenty of the other songs on this list. Always ranking the hit singles as #1 on these list is kind of condescending too, I might add.
