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.

Song Reviews: Nick Jonas, Natalie La Rose, Ed Sheeran

Nick Jonas – Chains

After the huge hit “Jealous”, which became Nick’s breakthrough solo single after hitting the top 10 in many countries including major markets, US and UK, Nick released “Chains” as his second hit and was another US hit. “Chains” is a R&B song at mid-tempo with synths and drum beats. The song was epic and I never imagined he can pull such a song. It may be lyrically about in a difficult relation but it has its seducing way of pulling listeners to the song. He also even sounded a better vocalist than his brother Joe Jonas, who has been the main vocalist of their band. It also broke the one-hit wonder status for having two consecutive hits.

Natalie La Rose – Somebody (ft. Jeremih)

She’s one of the breakout artists for 2015 after her first ever single “Somebody” broke the US top 10 and a higher peak in UK at number 2. The song is an R&B pop song and showed her dance move in the music video. It can also remind you of Whitney Houston in the music video since it pays homage to her apart from its interpolation of Houston’s big dance hit “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” back in the 1980s. The song’s catchy and can make you move with its R&B beats. It was a rare R&B sound now from what we here on the radio recently.

Ed Sheeran – Photograph

After making everybody fall in love with “Thinking Out Loud”, Ed went more sentimental with this song “Photograph”. It started with guitar and then lyrics that’s touching and a melody and music video that will make you reminisce. The song has become a US top ten hit, his 3rd from sophomore effort “X” though a top ten hit in his hometown UK after a higher peaking “Bloodstream”.
