Top 10 Justin Timberlake Songs on my list and why I love them
JT wasn’t one of my favorites until recently. Since I heard his songs Mirrors I got totally addicted to it and soon began to pay attention to his other tracks. The one thing I have always admired about his is the fact that he convey such intensity of emotions through his singing. His songs are mostly layered with various musical instruments, and electronic sounds.
Initially when I decided to write this post, I was gonna rank each song from Rank 10 to Rank 1 (Rank 1 being the best) But all of the songs I have selected mean something to me, and each is special in its own way. So I’d rather state it by reason why I like each one of them. So the songs are not in any particular order. 🙂
It sounds like a song you would play on your wedding day. In this JT confesses to his loved one that he has realized that ‘She’ is meant to be his other half. Mirrors was inspired by his grandparents who were married for 63 years until his grandfather passed away. In the video you can see, how the Old lady remembers all the details of her life with Him, from the day they met, got married, and he died. By the end of the song she moves on. And drops the ring, which JT catches in the next scene. Like she is passing down her legacy to him and he has decided to carry it on. 🙂 Beautiful, Romantic and Unconditional Love. You have all these elements in the song.
Not a Bad thing
Is a sweet song in which JT tries to convince her that it is safe to trust him with her heart. He tells her that he won’t break his promises like people do. I love both the verses. The first one starts with “Said all I want from you is to see you tomorrow
And every tomorrow, maybe you’ll let me borrow your heart
And is it too much to ask for every Sunday
And while we’re at it, throw in every other day to start”
& the second part is “Now how about I’d be the last voice you hear tonight?
And every other night for the rest of the nights that there are
Every morning I just wanna see you staring back at me
‘Cause I know that’s a good place to start”
Pair of Wings
is very slow and silent-ish love song. Its almost like a lullaby for a lover LOLz…Its a dreamy song in which JT tells her if he had a pair of wings he would take her and fly away somewhere far away. Its sounds like a dream to elope with the one you love. What makes this song different from others is, it was meant to be a surprise for JT fans. It plays after Not a Bad Thing after a long silence and is not listed as an independent track in the album. Trust me it was a sweet sweet surprise haha
Drink you away
is about a Bad break up gone worse. In this song, he almost is on the verge of madness because he is finding it hard to believe she is gone. And getting drunk and talking to friends is not helping at all. Its the worst aftereffects of a break up. What I love about it is the style, the way he sings.
What goes around…comes around
We all know this track very well, it has been on top lists so many times since its release. Scarlett Johanson has played his girlfriend in the video. The video is somewhat magical, like an escape from the real world. Probably because of the burlesque-ish dancers that are there in it 😀 Anyway its a song about his girl cheating on him, who later tries to come back with selfish motivations. He recognizes whats on her mind and tells her (through out the song) that what goes around …. comes around.
What I love about this song is the Music in the beginning. The background Music is sexy (I think it is ) I love the music and the lyrics and everything about this song.
Cry me a River
it is rumored that this song was written about Britney Spears. In the middle of the song, there is a part where a heavy voice sings “Oh the damage is done so I guess I be leaving” it goes on for a while and the music and the voice, is a crazy combination. Its weird and probably thats why I love it haha
the way he says “Dirty Babe…” makes you wanna get dirty no matter how good girl you are. I cannot put a finger on what I exactly love about this song. But I always play it when I wanna take a break from work 😀 haha puts me in a great mood.
You should definitely watch the video. The girl is very cold hearted and kills him in the end. The lyrics are based on Boxing Expressions. And I don’t get all of them, but you can get an idea of what he might be trying to say (or sing) Like JT always does, he has great music in this song. The video is almost like a nightmare. And you probably can relate to her, if you ever were that cruel to someone. I know I was, but then the guy wasnt my boyfriend.
The song I’ve been waiting for 😀 This one makes me feel like the whole world, JTs world (I wish) revolves around me. He talks about a girl he spotted at a bar. And is immediately lovestruck. Well, it doesn’t matter whether you really are that girl or not. If you wanna feel great instantly, then play this song and imagine it is being sung for you. (my dirty little secret) haha
Suit & Tie
I just love the way he dances in this. 😀 and the way he looks in it 🙂
