10 Known Songs with Somebody

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.

Maroon 5- Love Somebody
Needing to love somebody? You are not alone as Adam Levine does too. This song eventually reached the US top 10.

Depeche Mode- Somebody
The song may not be released officially, but it was huge in radio in my country. It is my brothers’ soundtrack then.

Gotye- Somebody That I Used to Know
One of the most remarkable heartbreak songs. Well, it’s fine and just move on. This is one of the biggest hits worlwide this 21st century.

Natalie La Rose- Somebody (with Jeremih)
Wanna rock with somebody? Sounds familiar right? Changing “dance” to “rock”, it is an interpolation of an original hit from Whitney Houston which is also in this list. It was a huge top 10 last 2015.

Justin Bieber- Somebody to Love (with Usher)
One of Justin Bieber’s earlier hit, this pop song was a US top 20 hit then. It’s just about young love.

One of my favorite old songs, this song from BeeGees was very successful in Philippines then. Though it was a #17 hit in the US according to Billboard.

Memorable Lines in Songs: fun., Gotye and Charlie Puth

Indie band fun. became huge with “We Were Young” and they had great songs in their catalogue. Here are their songs with memorable lyrics:

We are Young (with Janelle Monae)
“The holes in my apologies, you know
I’m trying hard to take it back”
After doing some immature acts as youth, asking for apologies cannot take things back, but it can be something to learn from

Some Nights
” The other night you wouldn’t believe the dream I just had about you and me
I called you up but we’d both agree”
The guys just had a dream, but it’s just a dream and not sure if it really happened that may lead to frustrations.

Carry On
” If you’re lost and alone
Or you’re sinking like a stone.
Carry on.”
It’s like telling a friend to carry on when facing something unfavorable and feeling down.

Gotye may be considered a one-hit wonder but he had some great songs. In this list, there’s just one song which is his biggest hit ever.

Somebody that I Used to Know
” But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing”
It seems everything is over as the girl splits up with the guy showing like there was never they were lovers.

Charlie Puth
This young male singer may have been first became popular as featured artist but he deserves so much credit as a songwriter.

See You Again (with Wiz Khalifa)
” Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gon’ be with me for the last ride”
When a friend who’s always there for you, and he just bid goodbye. It was really a tearjerking moment.

Marvin Gaye (with Meghan Trainor)
“There’s loving in your eyes
That pulls me closer”
There’s something in the lady’s eyes that’s seducing the guy. Well, whatever happened, it’s just between them.

One Call Away
” Call me, baby, if you need a friend
I just wanna give you love”
Seems Charlie is a good friend after “hearing from See You Again” song. He’s always there when a friend has no one to be with and support.
