What a Good Boy Report Abuse

Strange but true i have a recollection of this song in my brain... I remember where I was when it was wrote and the symbolism key that was given after it all... I have been in a hypnotic state unable to process my earlier years due to severe head trauma in the 1990's. However now in recovery and seeing the beauty of it all. What amazing jams it gave is payment enough!!!! Those that were involved know exactly what i am speaking of. OK. Much love, Good Girl

Pinch Me Report Abuse
No song has ever better described what it feels like to be a Gen X'er growing up in a boring suburban town. Pop perfection.

Amazing song, definitely their best song and better than One Week. The song is not as comical as some others but it has so much meaning.

The Old Apartment Report Abuse
One of the best pop songs ever written about longing for a more simple time. And their best guitar riff.

This song brings you back to a better time. Everyone can relate to the 'old apartment'. The innocence that this song offers is enough in its own. Should be #1. Key song of the 90's;D

If I Had A Million Dollars Report Abuse
The song that made them stars. Shows their wry humor and great pop sensibilities. "Not a real green dress, that's cruel."

One Week Report Abuse
BNL's only number one hit. It's been overplayed but it's still a great song. And it name drops Akira Kurosawa!

I'll Be That Girl Report Abuse
It has one of the catchiest and most memorable choruses of all of their songs, plus its about the timeless and universal feeling of a guy chasing a girl.

You Run Away Report Abuse
Lacking a lot of the humor from their earlier works, but probably their best ballad imo.

Long Way Back Home Report Abuse
A very overlooked song but it really is great. Goes with (also left out): Lilac Girl, Wind It Up, and Every Subway Car.
