When we talk about ‘somebody’, we are talking about a person that might be the one to share things with us, or the person we want to love. Most songs with the word ‘somebody’ were love songs. Here are the 10 notable songs I collected with the word “somebody”.
Aaliyah- Are You That Somebody?
This is one of the best R&B songs during late 1990s and one of Aaliyah’s finest. It was a top 25 hit in the US then.
Kings of Leon- Use Somebody
I consider this as one of the best rock songs in 2000s. It turned to be a worldwide top 10 hit including major markets like US and UK.
Nickelback- Gotta Be Somebody
This is one of my favorite Nickelback songs. It ended as a top ten hit in territories, which includes of course, US and UK.
Whitney Houston- I Wanna Dance With Somebody
Wanting to dance with somebody? Then play this dance classic fron Whitney which became her biggest hit in 1980s.
