If you could only listen to 10 N.E.R.D songs for the rest of your life which ones would they be?



  • If you could only listen to 10 N.E.R.D songs for the rest of your life which ones would they be? What do you like about those specific songs?



  • This is obviously really hard, I would want to pick songs that were from different times.

    "Run to the Sun" (In Search Of...) timeless NER*D classic, beautiful romantic song, excellent production.

    "Bobby James" (In Search Of...) Tells a great story, beautiful falsetto Pharrell voice

    "The Way She Dances" (Fly or Die) Wonderful happy song, excellent changes, the band is really on point here.

    "Wonderful Place" / "Waiting for You" (Fly or Die) I guess this is kind of cheating because it's two tracks but it's really a beautiful song and I feel its meant

    "You Know What" (Seeing Sounds) possibly my favorite NER*D song, the bridge is wonderful, song has a great funky vibe, lot of passion here.

    "Love Bomb" (Seeing Sounds) I love the brass horns here, such a positive message, lot of passion on this track.

    "Deep Down Body Thurst" (No One Ever Really Dies) such an awesome track and I really like the more political NER*D here, specifically going after Trump. Lots of energy.

    "Don't Don't Do It!" (No One Ever Really Dies) Excellent message, wonderful tune and lyrics, fantastic Kendrick cameo.

    "Improvised Jam" (Live BBC performance) very clever and progressive lyrics, very fun and unique, ahead of its time. Nice and long too.

    I really wanted to make room for Locked Away (unreleased NER*D track), really fun track that fits into the adolescent coming of age theme of the album. Really love the upbeat vibe here and how loud Pharrell is on this track.

    Exactly this



  • no love for Stay Together?? (Spymob version of course)



  • @MHousel52

    Stay Together is certainly fantastic. It would be in my top 20 for sure! It's hard because if I really could only listen to only 10 songs, it would be very important to pick songs from different time periods. Although perhaps no tracks from Nothing because that's my least favorite N.E.R.D album (and also that band's least favorite).
