Matchbox 20- Yourself of Someone Like You
United States- Matchbox 20 is one of the biggest bands of their time through the album “Yourself or Someone Like You” which has gone an impressive 12x platinum awarded by RIAA. The group had wonderful hits too. Take note that the list here was based from Hot 100 Airplay as not making it to the Billboard Hot 100 because of rules before that no physical singles will not be eligible for the charts. However, the songs listed which made to the top 10 has been remarkable.
3 a.m.- #3
Two songs really made a mark which were their first two singles “Push” and “3 a.m.”. Two singles made it to the Billboard Hot 100 such as “Real World” which peaked at number 38 and “Back 2 Good” at number 24. The band did great though in rock music charts.
United Kingdom- Matchbox 20 had released at least three singles in United Kingdom. However, no singles ever made it to the top 10. UK is not just a main territory for them due to lukewarm reception for them. However, “Push” made it to the top 40 at number 38. It was followed by number 64-peaking “3 a.m.” and the last one “Real World” only at number 119.
Since Matchbox 20 did very well in US with “Push” and “3a.m.”, I am choosing between the two. I ended up choosing “Push” because I found more melodic. Also, it is a bigger hit internationally as it was a hit also in Asian countries which included Philippines. Do enjoy the emotional rock song below and also listen to Rob Thomas’ great vocals:
I wanna push you around, well I will, I will
I wanna push you down, well I will, I will
I wanna take you for granted, I wanna take you for granted
Well I will
