So as I said yesterday, I will be sharing songs from 50 of my favorite albums of the 00’s, this week. Yesterday I shared a the non single track “The Real Thing” from Gwen Stefani’s album “Love. Angel. Music. Baby.” Today’s song of the day is also a non single track. It’s “Last Night” from Justin Timberlake’s debut solo album, “Justified”. I like the idea of sharing non single tracks from these albums. All of these albums are so great and most people are familiar with the hit singles, but I would like to draw some attention to the songs that didn’t get as much attention, but are just as good if not better than the singles you are familiar with. “Last Night” is one of over a dozen great tracks form “Justified”. Do you have a favorite track from “Justified or yesterday’s “Love. Angel. Music. Baby.”?
Over the course of the next 7 days, I’d like to share songs from 7 albums from a playlist, I put together of the 50 Best Albums of the 00’s. Today’s song of the day is “The Real Thing” by Gwen Stefani from her debut solo album “Love. Angel. Music. Baby.” Unfortunately there is no video to accompany this song, but I think that it is a great example of the cool, sweet sound of this album. “Love. Angel. Music. Baby.” is like candy. It was a big hit when it came out in 2004 and with good reason it was chock full of catchy hooks and fun beats. This is Gwen at her best. Listening to it almost 8 years later, it still sounds fresh. Gwen Stefani has really great Pop sensibilities, which has helped carry her career to the heights it has reached, wether it be with No Doubt or solo. She is currently finishing up a new album with No Doubt……finally!!! Is anybody else excited to see what her and the rest of No Doubt have cooked up for the new album?
