Beautiful Soul is an EXCELLENT song, such a great meaning behind it. I love that song, hopefully everyone finds their own beautiful soul someday too...

Of course I have to agree. Here's a list of who I think were the top 5 individual male singers of 2004, not to mention the best ones of all time.

1. Jesse McCartney-Great Voice, Great Music, Makes Two Top Songs
2. Ryan Cabrera-Great Voice, Great Music, also makes two top songs
3. Clay Aiken-Great Voice, Pretty Good Music, makes one top song
4. Gavin DeGraw-Pretty Good Voice, Good Music, makes one song

Personally, I don't think any song ever will be better than Evanescence's Bring Me To Life. It was way to well done, so different, and so creative. I don't even think Evanescence can beat it, or Going Under for that matter.

haha...somebody will beat the song eventually, have no worries about that.

Its just a matter of whom, and what memories will be attached to the song.

Well the second Evanescence Album is currently in the making, so I'll see.
However, I would have to say some songs did come close, like for instance Linkin Park Don't Stay and Michelle Branch All You Wanted.

Yeah, I deleted the fifth one because it can't count if you don't own the cd.

Oh, and besides Bring Me To Life, being a collaboration between evanescence and Paul McCoy of 12 Stones, here are some other of my favorite collabortation songs:

1. Broken-Seether feat. Amy Lee Of Evanescence
2. Our Lips Are Sealed-Haylie And Hilary Duff
3. My Boo-Usher feat. Alicia Keys
4. Anxiety-Black Eyed Peas feat. Papa Roach
5. 1, 2 Step feat. Missy Elliot

There's more expression of my ridicoulousy strange taste in music. Are any of those three songs anything alike at all, seriously?

i know music is all about opinions, but i can't stand over half the songs on your list.

i have to say that linkin park is a pretty sorry excuse for a "band".. i've seen them live in concert two times, and they were the worst band on the ticket. they're just your typical "i came out in the late 1990/2000's so i make all of my songs sound exactly the same" type of band (Except for 'my december'.. I did appreciate that song, it was very nicely done.).. ditto with Avril(oh look at me i'm a punk rocker), Seether, Staind(i did like "it's been awhile"), Nickelback (nickelback is extremely guilty of this).. i'm not entirely sure who the others are, so i can't comment on them. i'm not saying that they dont sound different from other bands, which some of them do, but all of their actual songs are pretty much the same thing.

i do like maroon 5, and they decent in concert.

i've seen gavin degraw in concert as well, and that was just downright awful.. never again.. that dancing.. oh that dancing.... :oops:

i don't think you have ridiculously strange taste in music.. it's all the same.

the black eyed peas are great to see in concert, and i really enjoyed them. i do admit they sound different from the other bands on your list ;)

(once again.. no offense, it's just my opinion..)

A quick question: Why would you go and see Linkin Park twice if you don't like them? Also, I would have to say I didn't think their first CD was anything great. I only like about 5 of the songs on it, the only ones I really like are "One Step Closer" And "Pushing Me Away", the rest aren't great. The thing that really appealed to me was the second one, with great songs like "Breaking The Habit", "Don't Stay", and "Somewhere I Belong", but "Faint" is so horrible it makes my brain explode.

What can I say, I just like almost everything I hear. I have to admit a lot of singers, songs, and more sound the same, but I really don't care.

For an example, singers like Avril Lavigne have many alikes such as Michelle Branch, Ashlee Simpson (in a way), Fefe Dubson, Skye Sweetnam, and more. All of them sound very similar, of course some a little different. Put personally, if they sound exactly like her, I say bring on more Avril Lavigne CD's. I love to have a thousand different ones.

I just hear about a lot of people because of talk in school, and of course mostly MTV. I still have like 40 more CD's I have to get, all on a list. Is that crazy or what?

Since I mentioned collaborations, I think the worst one would have to be Jojo Baby It's You feat. Lil Romeo. For god sakes, I own Jojo's CD, I love that song, but adding rapping into it was a horrible mistake. Rap is rap, R&B is R&B, there not the same and do not belong together. The same with No Doubt Underneath It All feat. Lady Saw, although I enjoyed the rap part of songs like Ciara 1, 2 Step feat. Missy Elliot, or No Doubt Hey Baby feat. Bounty Killer. Im just really wierd like that.

Personally, in my opinion, the best singers are Evanescence's Amy Lee, Jesse McCartney, Ryan Cabrera, and Avril Lavigne. Of course all of the other's too but these four are my personal favorites. Its strange except for Jesse McCartney I got all of their CD's at the same time, the same day, same place. It was the first time I ever went to buy CD's, back when I didn't have like 200 of them.

a quick answer

Postby ouch » Mon Jan 31, 2005 1:36 pm

I saw linkin park the first time because they were playing with Cypress Hill, and I love cypress hill. I saw Linkin park the second time because they were playing with less than jake, korn, and snoop doggity dogg. Just because i saw them in concert doesn't mean I was there to see them ;).

I think Amy Lee has a very impressive voice in her recordings, but the few times I've heard her sing live she didn't really impress me as much. Evanescence really reminds me of a local band near here named Halestorm, that ive been listening to for three or four years now.. those kids are really great.. if you want to check out some of their music, http://www.halestormweb.com .... you can click on "launch player" and it'll play some of the songs from their new album.

I never thought of it that way. Anyways, I went and saw Ryan Cabrera and saw Skye Sweetnam too, but in this case I enjoyed her singing too. I bought her Cd right on the spot. I do that a lot.

Once I also saw some guy called Butch Walker at an Avril Lavigne concert not too long ago, and he was driving my brain crazy. On a giant tv set, they showed two of his videos that were decent songs, but his life preformance as far the music was driving me nuts. He had his mouth on the microphone, meaning I couldn't understand a word he was saying, and all of the songs sounded more the same than anyone I had ever heard, way over my normal limit. But then Avril came out and saved my life.

Anyways, it really doesn't matter, but I would have to add Skye Sweetnam's Billy S. and Tangled Up In Me to my best songs ever list, along with Korn Blind.
