Hanson- Middle of Nowhere: Top 10 Singles in US and UK / Memorable Chorus of a Song

Hanson- Middle of Nowhere
United States- As a newcomer at that time, Hanson released four singles from their first album “Middle of Nowhere”. The siblings hit it big with the singles released from the album. The top 10 singles from the album were:
I Will Come to You- #9
The Hanson brothers managed two singles to chart and hit the top 10. “Mmmbop” was apparently their most successful single from the album for reaching number 1 and one of the biggest hits for the year. The other two singles released failed to make it even to enter the charts.

United Kingdom- Hanson became a huge newcomer too in United Kingdom when they released their album “Middle of Nowhere”. Five singles were released from the album. Check the songs which went to top 10.
Mmmbop- #1
Where’s the Love?- #4
I Will Come to You- #5
Three of five singles from the album made it to the top 10. Just like in America, “Mmmbop” was also the biggest selling single from the album as it went to number 1. The predecessors “Where’s the Love?” and “I Will Come to You” were great hits too for reaching not just the top 10, rather the top 5 too. The singles which failed to reach the top 10 were “Weird”, which peaked at number 19, and “Thinking of You” which reached number 23.

“Mmmbop” was the obviously the biggest single from the album as it went to number in both US and UK. It even sold millions of singles. However, I am sharing “I Will Come to You” because of its nice lyrics and melody. Enjoy the song below:

I Will Come to You (Chorus)
When you have no light to guide you
And no one to walk to walk beside you
I will come to you
Oh I will come to you
When the night is dark and stormy
You won’t have to reach out for me
I will come to you
Oh I will come to you

Album’s Singles Review: Hanson “Middle of Nowhere”

Siblings Isaac, Taylor, and Zach more known as “Hanson” finally break the music charts with this debut album of them. It is known that the guy already had demo of their songs as well as indie recording and they broke the mainstream with “Middle of Nowhere”. I love the album’s pop rock tune which started a standard for siblings in a band. The album eventually sold multi-million worldwide.

I don’t mind what the word “mmmbop” means, the song is very catchy and addictive. I don’t think the lyrics is bad and I can sense a meaningful message on it. The song eventually became a global hit when it reached number one in many countries.
Rate: 9.0 out of 10

Where’s the Love?
In this song, the guys sounds more pop rock. The music video is also simple just like”Mmmbop”. It was a hit globally, nevertheless, not as successful as their debut hit.
Rate: 7.25 out of 10

I Will Come to You
This is the first ballad single of the guys from “Middle of Nowhere”. It is their most meaningful single release, likewise , I love the whole melody of the song. It became their second biggest hit from the album after settling in the top 10 in several countries.
Rate: 8.75 out of 10

“Weird” is the last single with a shot video. The music video of it really speaks for the title of the song. It is similar to “I Will Come to You”, though, it is more downtempo. The beautiful song did not do well as their previous single, though, it is worth listening.
Rate: 8.0 out of 10

Thinking of You
This is all in all the last single from the album and its music video was a live performance from their concert. It was a melodic song which is similar to “Where’s the Love? It charted in top 30 of UK.
Rate: 7.5 out of 10
